“Making Peace with Your Plate is a beautifully written book and exceptional resource . . . The combined talent and expertise of these two professionals provide a wonderful view of the path one might need to take in order to recover.”—Beth Mayer, LICSW, private practice, former executive director of Multi-Service Eating Disorders Association
Robyn Cruze, a well-known speaker and mental health advocate who found recovery from an eating disorder, has teamed up with therapist and friend Espra Andrus to provide expert guidance for those seeking eating disorder recovery, their loved ones, and treatment professionals.
This revised edition offers new insights and stories, updated approaches to nutrition, and answers to such pressing questions within the eating disorder community as: Does the word “recovered” have a place in the recovery process? What about notions of “good,” “bad,” “healthy,” and “unhealthy” foods? How does soothing the self rather than fighting the eating disorder fit into recovery?
Making Peace with Your Plate helps unshackle us from our fears, anxiety, and the need to control by providing proven strategies for recovery and taking back our power from the illness.
