Whether you're tired of being obsessed with your weight, are hungry for inner peace even more than you're hungry for food, or are desiring the freedom that comes with self-acceptance, Cravings will leave you satisfied.
Kate Wicker, Author of Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body
This book opens a doorway to hope for anyone locked in a struggle with food. It is a refreshing guide to freedom in Christ.
Jeff Young, Podcast host of The Catholic Foodie
Another excellent tool in Mother Church's hand to help feed God's children with what they crave most: truth, the food of saints!
Rev. Leo Patalinghug, Author of Grace Before Meals
Mary DeTurris Poust is an award-winning reporter, columnist, author, and blogger whose work has appeared in dozens of Catholic and secular publications. She is the author of Walking Together, The Essential Guide to Catholic Prayer and the Mass, The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Catholic Catechism and Parenting a Grieving Child. Author Residence: Delmar, New York
Mary DeTurris Poust draws on the rich appreciation of meals she first gained at the tables of her childhood in an Italian-American family, leading readers into reflection on the connections between eating, self-image, and spirituality. Like Geneen Roth in Women, Food and God, but from a uniquely Catholic point of view, Poust helps readers spot ways they use food as a way of avoiding or ignoring their real desires - for acceptance, understanding, friendship, love, and indeed for God.
With spiritual insights and practices gathered while she sorted out her own sometimes-conflicting attitudes and uses of food, Poust blends humor and encouragement, pushing beyond a love-hate relationship with food to a conscious appreciation of its spiritual meaning. She draws from scripture and the great Catholic prayer forms and devotions to assist readers in making intentional changes in their use of food. Poust also offers reflections on fasting, eating in solidarity with the poor, vegetarianism, and the local food movement.
