[EPISODE]   Friends and Food

I want to know what does it means for you to be a friend? Let's go on a journey to see how the definition you hold about friendship can impact the relationship you have with food & your body! How about this - Ever have a friendship where you vowed to be there for them no matter? Yes - OK - So now you've suddenly found yourself super involved in their life - feeling all the things they're going through and as a result, you start to feel drained, overwhelmed or off... How did you make yourself feel better- Ever find food or drink to do the trick? In this week's Nourish the Soul we will be diving into the topic of friendship and food! Join me for an exciting show as we look deeper at the reasons why food and alcohol can become pillars in what many people believe are "healthy" friendships. Ever find yourself not making the healthiest food & drink choices with your best pal? Do you notice food & drink are what bring you two together? Hmm... Ever find yourself a couple hours deep listening to your friend's drama and wanting french fries, ice-cream, or a few more glasses of wine? I want you to ask yourself this - how healthy is what you think "being a friend" is if you're overeating and or over drinking when you're around them or when you get home after spending time with them? If your ready to open your heart and mind up to a whole new definition of friendship while creating a whole new level of health and well-being for your mind, body & soul this is the show for you!
