Final Words:

People get so afraid of food. It's Erin's passion and her goal to change that from fear to the power that food has. Teaching to build health into our bodies and to help people to understand how to use food to do that. Let's get away from all of this fear-based messaging. We need to take a step back from that and learn how to empower ourselves and not to be afraid of it.
