Eating right is one of the best things you can do for self-care. As someone who has recovered from anorexia, I understand this is easier said than done. Eating disorders can loom over your life like the ever-changing cycles of the moon. The only way I was able to overcome it was by learning how to make healthier choices and enjoying delicious food. Proper nutrition has always been one of the three fundamental pillars of good health, along with sleep and exercise. In the past, nutritionists were often perceived as bland professionals whom you would consult after experiencing a heart attack or dealing with weight issues at school. There was nothing exciting or interesting about healthy eating until Whole Foods crossed paths with Julia Childs in the late 1980s. Today, in our health-conscious world, nutrition is one of the fastest-growing careers, and nutritionists like Peggy “K” Kotsopoulos are revolutionizing the field by transforming nutritious foods into mouthwatering recipes that even her three boys prefer over a bag of chips.
Peggy Kotsopoulos, our first “Tsavorite Mom” in the new podcast series, embodies beauty, warmth, and vitality while living with a green heart. Growing up in a Greek household where she cooked alongside her mother and grandmother, Peggy quickly realized that certain foods triggered specific reactions in her body. For instance, strawberries made her face tingle. Like a scientist conducting experiments in her kitchen lab, she spent her formative years discovering how foods negatively and positively impacted her health. After a lifetime of experimenting with recipes, she compiled her findings into an award-winning cookbook that promotes healthy eating and makes it practical, delicious, and enjoyable for the entire family.
