Healthy Eating is More than Food!

Happy Nutrition Month 2020! This year’s theme is “More than Food!”

When we think of healthy eating, we often think about WHAT to eat and maybe even WHAT NOT to eat. But healthy eating is more than food. It’s about HOW to eat too. Mindful eating encourages us to be aware of our hunger and fullness cues, to be present with food, and to be non-judgmental with our food choices.

Watch my fun interview and Mindful Eating Quiz on CHCH Morning Live.

My Conversation with Maye Musk

Sue Mah dietitian with supermodel Maye Musk

Chances are you know Maye Musk as the mom of Tesla co-founder Elon Musk. But did you know that Maye was born in Canada and began her career as a dietitian? Today, Maye is an international supermodel, author and speaker. And she has over 280K  followers on Instagram, to boot!

In a recent reunion with Maye, I reminded her of her very first book – Feel Fantastic – which I picked up years ago as a new graduate dietitian. Maye says her advice hasn’t changed – eat well, be active and look great! Watch my conversation with Maye on my LinkedIn page or Instagram or on my Facebook page.

In Maye’s latest book, A Woman Makes a Plan, she shares her incredible story of resilience, motherhood and entrepreneurship.

Here are highlights of Maye’s advice:

On life: It’s never too late.

On raising kids: Let them be independent.

On dietetics: Make yourself known in the media. Make nutrition fun and educational!

On the secret to looking great: Eat well. When it comes to exercise, “no pain, no pain” – do not work out to the point of pain.

On her inspiration: Her mom (who became an artist in adulthood and retired at the age of 96!)

On her mission: To give people confidence.

On her social media: #ItsGreatToBe71


Thank you, Maye for this wonderful inspiration!
