Stress and anxiety are at an all-time high, and for many of us, nothing is more soothing than a warm chocolate chip cookie or a fresh loaf of sourdough bread. But why is that? What’s really at the root of food obsession, food addiction, disordered eating and the intense food cravings we all have? Today, Nzinga answers questions about our complicated relationships with food, especially during a pandemic.

Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.
