The Appetite Episode #66:

Food Responsibility + Context: Learning How to Eat (Part 3)

An Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Podcast


What habits and routines can support healthy eating?  This third of our four-part series on Ellyn Satter’s eating competency skills, offers a look into how to build a healthy context and environment to support your food choices. Opal Co-Founder and Nutrition Director Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD talks with host and therapist Carter Umhau, LMHC about grocery shopping, a full pantry, and all that should happen to metaphorically set the table for success. This episode continues to define healthy eating through the question of how to eat, rather than what to eat
