In today’s vodcast, I chat about why we overeat. This topic has come to the forefront in recent years when, due to a variety of stressful events, many of us turned to overeating comfort foods.

These conversational vodcasts are available to the Kitchen Pioneers who have joined my YouTube membership community—The Traditional Foods Kitchen Academy.

Why We Overeat and What to Do About It

We often turn to comfort foods and overeat during stressful times. But did you know that if we are well nourished, we are less likely to overindulge on foods that only offer temporary comfort?

Eating a nutrient-rich diet nourishes not only our bodies but also our minds. And when our minds are strong, we are less likely to fall prey to stress, and in turn, we are less likely to turn to comfort foods that may not be good for us.

The Importance of Eating Seasonally

There’s more to eating a nutrient-rich diet than just eating good foods that are properly prepared. We need to learn which traditional foods we should be eating to nourish our bodies. And as important, we need to understand the right time to eat those foods.

As John Douillard writes in his 3-Season Diet book, we need to focus on eating foods that are in season because our gut bacteria is primed each season with slight changes to maximize our digestion of these foods when we eat them at the right time of year.

If we eat seasonally, we digest our food better and absorb the nutrients we need to feed our bodies and boost our brain health. And a healthy brain deals with stress better than an over-taxed brain that is craving the nutrients it needs to function optimally.

Stop Overeating by Eating Seasonally

So be sure to watch today’s vodcast to learn more about how we can stop overeating during stressful times and instead turn to eating seasonally to nourish our bodies and brains.
