Myrite Rotstein is the Holistic Food and LIfestyle Coach behind TastyLife Wellness Coaching. She helps deconstruct her client’s food stories so they can make peace with food and their bodies without calorie counting, deprivation or guilt. Since we are all in a long-term relationship with food, she asks that people question how they are in that relationship: Is it filled with guilt, control and deprivation? Or ease, nourishment and fun? She believes that true nourishment is more than what is on our plates. We need pleasure, love, community, gratitude and connection to feed and fulfill us on a deeper level. Through the Roots & Recipes project, she feels fortunate to be nourished by the grandmothers that she has lovingly “adopted”, since her own grandmothers have since passed. She loves to learn from their kitchen stories and have the opportunity to explore how identity, memories and stories collide when we can all sit around a table and share a simple meal made and eaten with love.
