Amber St. Peter is a wildly popular Plant Based Chef and Blogger and Cookbook Author living in Fullerton, California with her husband and pit bull pup, Maddie.
She recently completed her 200 hour Power Yoga Teacher Training and is now a Certified Yoga Teacher.
When she’s not working on her blog, Good Saint, you can find her perusing local Farmer’s Markets, comic book shops, and rock climbing gyms. Her first cookbook, Homestyle Vegan, is available everywhere books are sold.
In this revealing episode, we talk with Amber about her struggles with Eating Disorders and how she has learned to love her body in a more healthy and accepting way. She takes us through her several year journey with anorexia and bulimia and finding her way out.
We also chat about CBD and THC and how these strains of Medical Marijuana have helped Amber’s healing process. I know it sounds counter-productive to get the munchies when being mindful of an eating disorder, but listen in. You’ll be surprised.
At the beginning of our conversation we discussed as women how most of us can relate to some type of eating disorder. The media is constantly feeding us messages. They messages tell us we’re too fat, too skinny, to round, not round enough, an on ad nauseam. We’re always trying to fit in one way or another.
And we touch on a conversation that can be had within the vegan community about using the vegan label as a hiding place for restrictive eaters.
Listen in this week for a candid and open conversation on anorexia, bulimia and healing eating disorders.
