What to Eat When You're Hangry
Lindsey Smith is the author of Eat Your Feelings: The Food Mood Girl’s Guide to Transforming Your Emotional Eating- With Recipes! She's got the answers for what to eat when you're feeling stressed, sad, or just plain hangry.
Cravings can feel so powerful, but sometimes it can help take the power out of them and give you back more control to understand why you’re craving something, whether it's chocolate, cheese, or that particular mac and cheese that your aunt made one Thanksgiving the first time you came home from college.
Dissecting and understanding these cravings is a big part of what Lindsey Smith does in her upcoming book Eat Your Feelings: The Food Mood Girl’s Guide to Transforming Your Emotional Eating- With Recipes! This is not a diet book, and this is not a book that purports a one-size-fits-all, right way to eat. Instead, Smith unpacks what she calls the "Food Mood Lifestyle," a way to listen to your feelings while giving your body what it wants.
