Wow another week and another powerful TED talk by a dietitian. I really admire Jo McMillan’s straight talking approach to food and nutrition. I was lucky to have lunch with her recently as we chatted our food philosophies and her upcoming TED talk. So it really was no surprise to see that she delivered fantastic content and powerful messages. But oh boy, she also completely nailed the delivery.

The philosophy of this down-to-earth Scot is simple. She believes that having a healthy relationship with food is just as important as eating nutritious foods, and she regards food as more than the nutrients it contains; rather, it is part of our social connection, our culture and a great source of pleasure in life. Amen to that sista.
