​Food is Your Friend
It’s a simple fact of life: your body needs food for energy, strength, and survival. 

But, your relationship with food is anything but simple. 

There is so much fear surrounding what you should and shouldn’t be eating, as well as how much you should be eating, that your relationship with food has become filled with anxiety. 

Elana Horwich believes that you will be healthier if you can learn to love food rather than fear it. 

As the founder and head chef of Meal and a Spiel, Elana travels the world teaching people how to embrace healthy cooking and release their fears about food. 

She shares how her personal relationship with food has shaped her professional journey, and talks about why loving -- not fearing -- food is essential to living a wonderful and healthy life.
