Show Notes

HNY, Once You See It fam!!

We're back in 2023 with a fresh new episode about mindful and intuitive eating - a topic that's especially pertinent around the new year, when many of us (myself included...!) can fall into the annual "diet traps" /snap weight loss goals so commonly associated with New Years and resolutions.

Many of us were raised with unhealthy or unrealistic beliefs about food, and the wise and wonderful Caitlin Hildrebrand is on today to propose a new way of eating - one that focuses on listening to our bodies and nourishing ourselves in body, mind, and spirit.

Join us today as we discuss: 

- The tenets of mindful and intuitive eating

- Honoring our values, preferences, and beliefs around food, and learning to listen to our body's cues around nourishment

- The concept of discipline, and becoming disciples - students - of our own bodies and patterns

- Thinking of our bodies as instruments, rather than ornaments

And more...tune in now to Once You See It!
