"I think it’s very expensive to not eat healthy. Eating healthy is the only affordable option we have left." ~ Marcus Samuelsson
By Brigitte Mouchet
Whether we are ready to admit it or not, we have food on our mind most of the time. Not so much because we are starving, but because we are used to consuming food to satisfy a variety of needs. With most of us still spending more time at home than usual, having easy access to food may be a little bit of a problem. Awareness about and around food is becoming increasingly important as well as knowing what to eat, when, and why.
For this Wellness Series interview on Thursday, May 6th, I chose a practitioner with a holistic view of nutrition, and a true expert: Sarica Cernohous, who holds a doctorate of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine and also teaches nutrition at the master’s level. In her practice as well as in her daily life, Sarica integrates elements from various medical, nutritional, and culinary traditions that use food to help create greater inner harmony.

In this interview, you will hear about foods that can keep you nourished and grounded, as well as learning how to make food more available to your body, facilitate digestion, increase mental energy, deal with snacking, and better listen to and trust your body—all of which should have a positive impact on your health and budget. After listening to Sarica, you will look at food differently.
For Let's Go to the Movies, I chose a short video, The Heart Followers, which tells the story of a family of five in northern Norway living inside a glass dome. In that inhospitable Arctic climate, they built a garden around their little house where they are able to grow their own food all year round.
