E074: Overcome Shame to Create Health and Community with Melissa Costello

In this episode, you’ll learn from two foodies talking together about how much fun it can be to enjoy food and the good company it creates.

I bring in my experience and expertise from my decade-plus running the nonprofit Nurture (www.MakeEverythingFun.com/Nurture) and talk with another serious foodie about our relationship to food, our vocabulary around food, and how to create a healthy and loving relationship with food, ourselves, and the planet.

Our guest is celebrity chef, cookbook author and Transformational Eating Coach Melissa Costello. You’ll love hearing about her deep exploration of food, childhood experiences, and cultural messaging around appearance. This is a healing journey for many.

The four “fun nuggets” from this interview are a combination of wellness tips and author advice:

#1:  Get out of the Food Prison that our “diet culture” creates.

#2:  Heal your relationship with food by understanding how food has been hardwired in our brains to relate to survival.

#3:  Recognize that even a cookbook can be a spiritual tool.

#4:  View a book as a tool to bring together your unique experiences in life to create something new and special.
