The “Bite Sized Education” Series

In part one of this week’s episodes, we are covering the multiple layers of health, nutrition, and the privilege that defines health in our society. We discuss how health is physical and includes nutrition elements but if mental health is suffering because of strict rules about healthy eating, then it is not true health. We chat about the mental health component of enjoying food and finding a relationship with food that works for our bodies and our livelihood.

Our amazing listeners also wrote in and in this episode we will answer the following question:

Dear Mom Genes,

Thank you for all you are doing and for providing the information and education you have thus far. Though I feel inspired by your mom bod messaging I am conflicted about some of the food information you are providing. I do believe in ‘providing variety for my family’ and having ‘everything in moderation’ however; I do want to eat healthy and take care of my body. That being said, the information that is available out there about healthy eating is so confusing. I’m worried that if I follow what the internet is saying my family will be super limited. But I also don’t always trust what is in all foods. Can you provide some insight into what healthy eating actually is? Thanks for your help! Mama Greenie
