In this episode, we are joining Kori Kostka, Registered Dietitian and mama of two little ones. Kori started off as your typical meal planner but quickly realized she personally needed more. She now coaches mindful eating, which is also about self-compassion and self-discovery. Food is meant to be fun! She lives on an old working farm in the country, Uxbridge Ontario Canada, with her husband and two kids.
I love seeing all the beautiful photos from Kori’s farm on her Instagram page! I enjoyed this conversation so much and walked away with simple ideas that I implemented in my kitchen and with my family immediately. Her kind demeanor and loving way of speaking about food and mindful eating will leave you feeling satisfied. She is incredibly knowledgeable and shares information that will help mamas and mamas-to-be create a healthier relationship with themselves, their food, and their families.
