Episode 01: The Savor of Flavor
Episode 02: The Pleasure Trap
On this episode, Chef Anthony Cruz, a local plant-based chef and wellness advocate, joins Vida to discuss how to escape the Pleasure Trap, an elusive hidden force that is actually our own nervous system's "internal compass" which is designed to tell us what's best for us. Unfortunately, the Standard American Diet has hijacked our nervous system and made us into junk food junkies and sugar addicts. Popular processed foods stimulate our pleasure centers in the brain and trick us into thinking that we are doing the right thing. With a new understanding of why we do what we do, we can empower ourselves to create a new path towards lasting and positive change. (chefanthonycruz.com)
