Peace Meal Podcast
Episode 81: Finding Your Wise Mind with Sarah Rzemieniak
"This month’s Peace Meal guest is Sarah Rzemieniak, who brings multiple perspectives to a rich discussion about eating disorders, healing, and recovery coaching. Drawing from her personal experience and professional background in dietetics and coaching, Sarah begins by sharing some of the temperamental and social factors related to the development of her eating disorder. Though she sought help soon after her anorexia was recognized at age 13, Sarah acknowledges that her recovery was not without challenges and setbacks. She shares how meditation played an essential role during a particularly difficult relapse, helping her to get out of her head and ground herself in her body."

Episode 13: Interview with Sarah Rzemieniak
"In this episode we are joined by our friend, the lovely Sarah Rzemeniak. Sarah is an Eating Disorder Recovery Coach and a new parent. We talk about Sarah’s initial experiences with feeding her little one and how she has pulled from multiple feeding approaches to find something that works for her family unit. We discuss Sarah’s hopes for her son’s relationship with food, which is informed in part by her lived experience of an eating disorder, and the importance of self-compassion in parenting. Sarah shares the supportive stance her partner takes with parenting around feeding, and the values he wants to share with their son. We so appreciate Sarah for spending time with us today, and for sharing her experiences and resources with all of us. She is a great writer and a generous soul; thank you Sarah!"

She then became a certified eating disorder recovery coach through The Carolyn Costin Institute, where she was supervised and trained directly under Carolyn Costin, eating disorder therapist, author, and founder of Monte Nido residential treatment centers. Sarah is now an eating disorder recovery coach with her own private practice, providing virtual recovery coaching services worldwide."
