The Appetite Episode #61:

Beyond a Diet: The Power of Food Memories

An Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Podcast


What does it mean to have a healthy diet? At Opal: Food + Body Wisdom, that means attunement, adequacy, and freedom with food. It also means letting memory play a part in our food choices! In this podcast, Opal Co-Founders Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD and Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS, and Appetite host Carter Umhau, LMHC share the foods that hold the greatest memories for them (raspberries straight off the bush, peanut butter M&Ms, carrot casserole) and how their relationship to those foods have developed and changed. Focusing on food memories, good and bad, Kara, Julie, and Carter will talk about how their tastes have changed, stayed the same, or grown in attunement over the years.
