FOOD for THOUGHT, THOUGHTS for FOOD
Join Cat Lyons, RN and culinary nutrition coach for a conversation on the complexity of our relationship to food.
Every individual’s relationship with food is unique. Wait, relationship to food? Yes! You have one, I have one, we ALL have one – and like most relationships, it’s complex. There are many factors, opinions and emotions that influence what we eat and why we eat it: taste, money, time, convenience, nutrition, heritage, family, politics, agribusiness, the food industry, advertising, politics, etc. The most obvious factor of all – yet possibly the least considered by most Americans – is the fact that what we put in our mouths IS THE FUEL which powers our cells to run our metabolic processes on which our health depends.
Have you thought about your relationship to food? This ongoing and ever changing relationship is often not acknowledged, yet it’s a crucial part of our lives whether we love it or we hate it or something in between. Each of us makes decisions about food everyday. On what do you base those decisions – what thoughts, beliefs, desires, circumstances, influences? What are you thinking and feeling when you make those food decisions? It’s a fascinating conversation. I can’t wait to chat with you!
The zoom call will be on Monday , September 24, at 12 pm Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Cat Lyons, RN, culinary nutrition coach, cookbook + recipe curator was inspired to create MIND your FORK as a flexible, approachable resource for people who want to have a better sense of their own food philosophies and how to live by them. Choose your own metaphor. Whether you stand at a fork in the road, looking to see which way of eating will work best for you or are just curious to know about all ways before you choose, MIND your FORK might be able to help. Just as onions are a great foundation to any dish, they have many layers – so do our food philosophies as they are part of our value systems and how we live. What better way to start understanding those layers than with questions? What fork questions do you have? What are you curious about?
