Today I chat with Jenny Weinar, LCSW of @homebodytherapy about recovery and ethical veganism and Overeater’s Anonymous. We talk about how to figure out the motivation for your veganism (or any other “health practice” during recovery!!!!)
We also talk why Overeater’s Anonymous isn’t recovery… and it’s really just another way to restrict. We also talk about a way to approach navigating friends and family who aren’t on board with your recovery process. It’s a good one!
