Danielle LeBaron interviews me about the origins of The Nourishment Mindset

WATCH on YouTube Y'all

Today’s Nourishment Mindset podcast #45 features an interview I did with holistic nutrition publisher Selene River Press’ Danielle LeBaron, a lovely lady and mom of four(!) nourished children including a recently born daughter. She is positively glowing throughout the interview despite being in infant mode, which speaks to the power of nourishing yourself with real whole foods and living a holistically focused life!

We discuss my motivation in writing the book, why it’s focused on the pleasures of the table and the fact that I’m targeting real, everyday people. In America, we do a lot of drivin’ through, drive-bys to the fridge, and not so much dining à la table sans distraction et en famille. My book, The Nourishment Mindset, aims to change that convenience focused habit and end our toxic diet (rhymes with riot!) culture while bringing you vitality and the reversal of chronic lifestyle conditions using real whole food, straight talk and of course, the pleasures of the table.

Tune in to learn about my origin eating disorder (sob) story and how I still struggled in calorie counting jail while dining in some of the world’s finest food and wine regions. I detail how I healed, why this concept of nutrient density and the pleasures of the table is paramount and how you and your family can incorporate it in small steps to elevate your physical and psychological health. It’s as easy as preparing food and a table, sitting down and raising a glass.

In honor of our first birthday (!) — I started The Nourishment Mindset podcast on August 24, 2002, I’m offering anyone who reviews the book on Amazon or the pod on Apple/Spotify/Google Play a complimentary 20 minute health (or wine and food!) consultation. Simple post your review on your platform of choice and email me to let me know it’s there (
