Episode Four of Live. Love. Eat. has now been posted. In it, we discuss motherhood, the nature of trust, and how control becomes an issue when we struggle with the trust of our bodies.
Each episode of Live. Love. Eat. is an interview with someone who has stepped up to share the story of her (or his) relationships with food and with her body. She may be a disordered eater, she may be a paleo dieter, she may be totally at peace with her body or not. The whole point being that I can do all of the writing on my blog here that I want, but I will never be able to do something as empowering, comforting, and inspiring as sharing with y’all the beautiful and brilliant lives of others.

Episode Four is with guest Teal Hutton.
Having officially stayed in one place for almost a decade and a half (after many frequent relocations throughout her childhood and adolescence), Teal Hutton can say that she is truly at home in the beautiful Mid-Hudson Valley in Upstate New York. While Teal’s daytime secret identity is that of senior producer for a small but feisty web development shop, her real superhero powers include independent study (of whatever strikes her fancy), self-taught journalism, print and web design, knitting, falling in love, and an as-yet-unmatched knack for memorizing song lyrics. She is equal parts accidental home chef, amateur seamstress, aspiring homesteader, student of integrative nutrition, and most importantly single mama to a quick-witted and insatiable 4-year-old boy. Consequently, in her 33rd year, she still doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. Teal’s experience of her son’s birth in 2007 — as a tremendous failure and her body’s first major betrayal — colored her relationship to her body and to food for the coming years, and triggered a cascade of health challenges and emotional pitfalls. Shortly after, Teal was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and secondary amenorrhea, and she’s spent the years since learning the difference between trust and control, and the direct connection between self-love and physical health. Teal can be reached at email@example.com.
