Gluten free and dairy free have become buzzwords in our food culture the past few years. With other terms flying around like plant based and clean eating, it can get confusing how to approach them and understand the benefit they even hold. Over the past few years, I have become a fan of Daphne Oz and her vibrant platform that spans across social media and TV! I have always deeply connected with the way she savors food and cooks with loads of flavor and intentional ingredients. Recently, she released her newest cookbook called “Eat Your Heart Out”, which breaks down the way she approaches resetting her own eating during seasons of stress, postpartum and around the holidays. Through this book, Daphne has curated recipes that lead to memorable meals, crave-worthy bites and overall food that doesn’t make you feel deprived but rather helps meet your goals along the way. Knowing full well the misconceptions that can come with special-diet cuisine, Daphne talks about why she selected each of the intentional ingredients and why they could help you too!
Get to know the journey that led Daphne to the platform she has today.
What it was that led her to refresh the way she looked at wellness and food.
The techniques and ingredients she uses to ensure that she gets “wellness and pleasure in every bite.”
What she has to say to the person who is looking to make changes to the way they approach food! (Don’t worry, it includes balances and loads of decadence!)
Why her recipes in this book leave out gluten, dairy and refined sugars. The reasons are very relatable!
We know that topics surrounding food can be contradicting, overwhelming and deeply personal. I hope that this conversation, and her new book, give you assurance that you are not alone in having these questions. Also, that you can, in fact, experience the balance of savoring your meals while feeling like your best self!
I was living in Thailand, longed for community, starting opening my door and filling my table. Now I’m living ‘charcuterie’ as a way of life and teaching what I learned about living intentionally everyday.
