In this episode, I'm joined by registered dietitian, nutritionist, and author, Maya Feller. Taking inspiration from her own cultural roots and her clinical training, her new book Eating From Our Roots, takes us on a culinary trip around the globe. By shedding light on traditional cooking methods, farming, and ingredients from cultures in the Caribbean, African, Mediterranean, and more we can learn how to eat more sustainably and healthfully for vibrant wellness. From looking at how migration patterns have influenced our modern day diets to old vs. new wellness practices, this episode dives deep into all the ways our eating patterns have evolved to what they are today - for better or worse.

Maya Feller, MS, RD, CDN, of Brooklyn-based Maya Feller Nutrition, is a nationally recognized registered dietitian nutritionist. She received her master's of science in clinical nutrition at New York University. Maya shares her approachable, real-food-based solutions through regular speaking engagements, writing in local and national publications, and as a nutrition expert on Good Morning America

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • How food tastes travel with migration patterns.
  • Old wellness practices vs. new wellness practices.
  • The definition of food apartheid or food deserts.
  • How foods that were once consumed sparingly are consumed on a daily basis and the impact on our health.
