I’m happy to announce that The Inner Wisdom Eating Summit: Finding a Healthy Relationship With Food in a Disconnected World starts September 20. My interview will run on September 21, and 20 other interviews with other experts will be available. Hosted by holistic nutritionist Cat Dillon, the summit explores such issues as overeating; stress, boredom or fatigue in relation to food; and knowingly eating foods that don’t leave you feeling your best.
