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.
