Lia manages to strike a balance between stretching people’s boundaries while keeping it simple, which means people walk away inspired and enthusiastic rather than overwhelmed.
Once I learned how to prepare healthy meals myself in the comfort of my own kitchen, the way I viewed and felt about food changed. I’ve learned how to savor food, both in the preparing, and especially in the eating. And the best part is, my family has too.
I approach food more mindfully and with greater respect—not only for how it was grown and where it came from, but for how it will affect me and my well-being. I’ve lost weight and, for the first time in my life, feel as though how I look is an accurate reflection of who I am.
Throughout my childhood and teens I was a meat and potatoes gal. I detested all vegetables, and was especially partial to Doritos and Blizzards. It didn’t even cross my mind to pay attention to how they made me feel, or wonder what they were doing to my body.
