A Word From Willow Jarosh, MS, RD

Food, nutrition, and eating in general can feel overwhelmingly complex at times because of the amount of information coming at us. I believe that allowing ourselves to be curious, without judgement, opens up opportunities to find what works for us each as individuals and helps us explore our own ongoing relationships with food and nutrition and all that encompasses. Curiosity, instead of judgement, also creates space to cultivate more joy in our food experiences.
