Why is the food relationship important? 

How we approach our food is connected to several important elements of our life:

  • how we feel about our body and our body image

  • the intangible or perceived barriers to successfully engaging in desired self-care behaviors

  • our ability to have adequate, enjoyable nourishment

  • degree to which we experience vibrant health or struggle with food-related problems, such as food anxiety or emotional eating (among others)
