“What I would emphasize is, food can be a coping tool. We don't want it to be our only coping tool. and we also want to make it a mindful experience that actually helps our feelings rather than makes it feel worse.” - Allie Landry
“What if being healthy meant focusing on what to add and removing the good and bad labels?” - Allie Landry
“A lot of people feel like eating whatever you want can't be healthy. But that's often because they might be in a dieting mindset where they feel out of control around whole foods.” - Allie Landry
