69: How to Avoid the Trap of Victimhood
In this episode, we discuss the topic of victimhood. Do you find yourself playing the victim when it comes to your health or body size? Is your anger aimed at diet culture or are you learning from your mistakes and moving on?

65: Putting Your Hope in Christ and Not in Your Diet Or Body Size
It's Easter week, so as we reflect on the journey Jesus took to the cross, we are reminded that our hope is in Him. In His death, burial, and resurrection, and not in ourselves, in our diets, or our body size. We are called to seek first HIS kingdom and to trust that God is working everything out for our good. We can trust God with our health and our bodies, even if the outcomes don't meet our expectations. Sometimes we need to learn to let go of control and let God.  Follow us on Instagram @eatwithgracepodcast Find Jacque at cookingwithjacque.com Find Brooke at brookefredrickson.com

60: Traditional vs. Functional Medicine
In this episode, we talk about the differences between the traditional healthcare model versus function and integrative medicine and nutrition. More and more people are moving toward naturopathy because they don't get their problems solved by modern medicine. Although we think there is room for both avenues in healthcare, we encourage you to be discerning in the treatment options you choose, especially in the naturopathy route with its close ties to new age and eastern religion practices.

56: The Dark Side of HAES, Body Positivity and Fat Activism
In this episode, we discuss recent headlines in the mainstream media surrounding "health" and what health "looks like". More and more media sources are featuring people in larger bodies as the face of health, which is resulting in lots of backlash. As Christians, how should we respond to it? What is health, and does it have a look? Phrases like "health at every size" and "body positivity" have different meanings to different people. Now more than ever, Christians need to be discerning about the messaging they hear and compare to objective truths found in the Bible.  Follow us on Instagram @eatwithgracepodcast Find Jacque at cookingwithjacque.com Find Brooke at brookefredrickson.com

41: Meal Planning
In this episode we push back on the culture that says "There is only one right way to do meals." As Christian moms, we have tried so many different ways to honor our Lord by feeding our families. And sometimes, out of shear exhaustion, we found a new way that works for a season of our lives but then we realize we need to add a little more structure or a little less structure to our meal-time routine. It is always a dynamic conversation about how to meet our families needs without succumbing to the ever present cultural pressures or what the popular media considers "The. Only. Right. Way".

40: Food Environment
In this podcast, nutrition experts Jacque and Brooke, talk about food environments in biblical culture and in our culture today. The food environment we find ourselves in today influences, or at least tries to influence us with million dollar marketing campaigns, to make choices that might not be in our best interest. There is a tension today in making good choices that was not "in our face" as much a few generations ago. With all these changes, we offer a voice of reason and push back on the culture from a biblical perspective.

39: Food and Celebrations
In this episode we look at food and celebrations. These can be anxiety producing situations for restrictive eaters. We might try all kinds of different ways to manipulate things so we can more easily deal with an event where food is present.  We might not feel "capable of eating" foods in moderation when we have an eating disorder. But God has called all foods good and has even blessed his people with the gift of hospitality. A biblical view of food and celebrations can free us to use our gifts and share in the joy of fellowship with others.

38: God's Masterpiece, Our Earthly Bodies and the Golden Rule
In this episode, we focus on Ephesians 2:10 which says that "we are His masterpiece, created in Christ to do good works..."  What does this mean? How does being created by God affect how we see our bodies and live our lives? This episode isn't just food or nutrition, but it's an important discussion to have about our purpose here on earth.   Follow us on Instagram @eatwithgracepodcast Find Jacque at cookingwithjacque.com Find Brooke at brookefredrickson.com

35: Issues of the Heart: Self-Control
In this episode, we talk about the differences between controlling everything in our lives to biblical self-control. Does the Bible call us to be self-controlled with our food choices? Does eating dessert mean that we lack self-control? I think Christians often feel that their inability to use will power to control their food intake is a sin, which isn't necessarily biblical.
