FIT Authors Talk: Michelle Lawton on Moderating a Love Affair With Food

May 2 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Michelle Lawton portrait and cover of the book Moderating a Love Affair with Food

Packaging Design Adjunct Professor Michelle Lawton will present on her book, Moderating a Love Affair with Food: 10 Tips for Mindful Eating and Drinking.

Moderating a Love Affair with Food: 10 Tips to Mindful Eating and Drinking is an easy-to-read and entertaining guidebook for the industry pro, the food- and wine-obsessed, “foodie,” home cook, or any eater who adores food and drink but is looking for a little help with moderating. The book offers 10 tips for self-control based on a food pro’s personal experience eating and drinking at home, work, and in social settings. The book covers subjects of self-care, moderating alcohol, cooking mindfully, eating out in restaurants and navigating the many tempting social situations we find ourselves in, and the expectations that others can put on us.

Throughout the book, Lawton shares funny anecdotes about everyday life and examples of ways to pay attention to our mood and surroundings. What’s different about this book? There are so many recipe books on the joy of cooking. And so many apps and programs on dieting or abstinence. This book is about loving yourself enough to enjoy everything in balance. Lawton draws on her experiences working in the food and wine industries, beginning as a corporate brand manager for super-premium Italian wines and Champagnes.
