Cravings: A Catholic Wrestles with Food, Self-Image and God

Similar to Geneen Roth in Women, Food and God but from a uniquely Catholic viewpoint, Mary DeTurris Poust explores ways people use food to escape or ignore their true desires: acceptance, understanding, friendship, love - ultimately God himself. Leveraging her rich appreciation of meals from growing up Italian American family life herself as an Italian American herself as a girl herself, Poust guides readers into reflection about eating as it relates to spirituality through questions, practice exercises and prayers per chapter.
