I was thrilled to get the opportunity to sit down and talk to Melissa d’Arabian, Food Network host and author of the bestselling Ten Dollar Dinners, about her newest book Tasting Grace.
In her book, Melissa describes 16 invitations that transform the way we view food and our relationship with food.
I don’t know about you, but I have felt burdened by all the food rules lately. Everyone has an opinion on what is “good” or “bad” food. This book was a breath of fresh air in shaping my perspective on food as a gift and a joy.
In my interview with Melissa, she talks about why she chose to write this book, the intentional process she went through in forming it, and she shares some of her views that helped shaped the invitations in this book.
If you are feeling caught up and confused in the “eat this, not that” culture we live in, this book and episode of the podcast offers a fresh and balanced perspective. Food can unite us, and we can utilize what we’ve been given to be filled with more gratitude – and grace.
If you love this interview, I can’t recommend the book enough. It is a love letter to food and the Giver of good things. For more information on Melissa, check out her website here.

I strive to eat veggies at every meal, but typically, time works against me. I’m not great at meal prepping, though I should be. Dinners are always planned out ahead of time with the husband before he goes grocery shopping, but lunch as a work at home mom is tricky. “Mindful eating” is not my friend during lunchtime chaos. I usually do whatever I can to get the kids fed and the littlest down for a nap. By the time I get to eat, I want to shovel something crunchy and processed in my mouth and be done with it.
Enter the 7 Minute Supermom Saute. It’s fast, filled with superfoods, and helps me to perform as a supermom. Food is mood. I need my adrenals to be fully functioning throughout the afternoon.
