As busy families, it’s easy to catch yourself coming and going, shoveling back quick meals without even thinking, and prioritizing convenience over health, especially when you’re constantly pressed for time. 


You know you’re supposed to incorporate healthier eating habits for your whole family, but HOW?


Enter board-certified pediatrician, certified lifestyle medicine physician, health coach, and mother of two, Dr. Yami! 


Dr. Yami’s work and her private practice focus on how families can start to integrate more whole plant-based foods into their diets and adopt other healthy lifestyle habits even when moving a million miles a minute.


Easier said than done, right? 


Well, Dr. Yami literally wrote the book to help families in this transition. A Parent’s Guide to Intuitive Eating: How to Raise Kids Who Love to Eat Healthy, is packed with research and support to help parents and families work together on creating a healthier lifestyle. 


We talk all about body shaming and how to get your kids to eat whole-food plant-based without forcing it down their throats and allowing them to follow their kind of intuitive eating clues. 


Even if you’re not a parent, you’ll love the advice of Dr. Yami, especially if you consider yourself to be a picky eater (spoiler alert: most of us are). 


As Dr. Yami says, we can’t necessarily control what our bodies look like, but we can control how we view them, and her work is all about starting an ongoing conversation with your family about getting healthier TOGETHER.


And that’s what it’s all about!
