In Episode 8 of the Potential Psychology Podcast we take a fascinating little side path into the world of food, cooking, simplicity and wellbeing.
My guest is Jules Clancy from StoneSoup: Simple Weeknight Dinners. Jules is a food scientist, a former winemaker, an author, a photographer, founder of the StoneSoup Virtual Cookery School, and a passionate advocate of minimalism and simplicity, especially in the kitchen.
Jules and I start with a conversation about meals and recipes for a busy family. We traverse minimalism and de-cluttering for mental health, self experimentation in everyday life, 'tree changes' and our mutual relief at living traffic-free. We end up 45 minutes later deep in discussion about mindful eating and what triggers our hunger cues.
Along the way you will learn about:
How to think about your weekly rather than daily nutrition.
The role of a food scientist and life on the ‘Tim Tam’ team.
Decluttering your kitchen and what to do when your toaster breaks,
Reframing your cooking and kitchen tasks to reduce overwhelm, increase your joy and improve marital harmony
It's a magical, meandering episode through fascinating, functional topics.
