Podcast Episode 053: Around the Table – Bonnie Taub-Dix

Nov 29, 2016


“Dinner is a great place to share a meal and so much more…I’m all about family and setting an example when I set the table. I teach people how to eat to make themselves feel good – emotionally and physically – and I truly believe that if you raise your kids to enjoy food because of the way it tastes and the way it makes them feel, you’re teaching them a lesson for life that’s more important than most of the subjects they learn in school.” – Bonnie Taub-Dix

Bonnie makes sense of science and proves that nutritious and delicious can coexist on the same plate at every meal and snack. She believes that food is fun, festive, and for promoting wellness. It’s not about deprivation, punishment or excess. The key is trying to find the balance YOU need for your particular body and lifestyle.
