Intuitive Eating During the Holidays with Cara Harbstreet

Today we’re talking with Cara Harbstreet, MS, RD, LD, a nationally-recognized food & nutrition expert, speaker, and author. She is based in Kansas City, where she owns and operates Street Smart Nutrition. After discovering her passion for a non-diet approach, she pivoted into private practice and consulting. Now, she works to help people rediscover joy in eating deeply nourishing meals without restriction or fear. Cara enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, exploring new restaurants, and roaming local trails while listening to podcasts. She’s also active on social media – be sure to connect with her to see updates and keep in touch!

In this episode, we’ll talk about:

  • Cara’s super informative tips for practicing intuitive eating during the holidays
  • How to deal with the fear-mongering articles about avoiding holiday weight gain
  • Navigating the (potentially triggering) weight-based comments that come up from our family members
  • & MORE!
