This week David brings on Angie Dye, a sports dietitian certified in intuitive eating counseling, to discuss her One Small Bite to an Anti-Diet Approach to New Year’s Resolutions. In the last episode of this series David and Angie chat about using intuitive eating with athletes and in digestive health, Angie’s love for triathlons and Iron Man competitions, and how Carpe Diem became the name of her business.
As the conversation continues Angie talks about her work with IBS, IBD, celiac disease, fatty liver, and guiding clients through FODMAP diets to determine which foods trigger their symptoms. Her and David also talk about how helpful it has been to use their training as intuitive eating counselors in their lives as parents. They also reflect on Episode 54 a podcast about intuitive eating for athletes with Kia Bourne.
Angie shares with us her One Small Bite: asking the questions: “where are you and where would you like to be?” and “why do you think that is going well/a struggle?”. Understanding the why can help determine if that New Year’s resolution is serving you as a whole.

Angie’s Sarma (aka stuffed cabbage rolls) Recipe
1 large head of cabbage or 2 smaller heads
1 family-sized can of tomato soup
24 oz jar of sauerkraut
3 teaspoons caraway seeds
2 cloves garlic, peeled
3 bay leaves
For the filling:
2# ground beef
1# ground pork
2 eggs beaten
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1/2 cup milk
2-4 T chopped parsley
1 t salt
1/8 t pepper
- Boil cabbage in a large pot until leaves start to easily pull apart. Remove cabbage from the pot and let cool before handling.
- While cabbage is cooking, then cooling, mix the ground meat, beaten eggs, onion rice milk, parsely, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
- Peel apart cabbage leaves and place a few tablespoons of the ground meat mixture into each cabbage leaf. Roll like a burrito and set aside, seam side down. Fill as many cabbage leaves as you can, until the meat mixture is gone. Some people like small cabbage rolls and others like larger ones; it doesn’t really matter but all should be relatively the same size so that they cook evenly.
- Drain sauerkraut and place about 1/3 of it on the bottom of a large dutch oven. Add 1 teaspoon of the caraway seeds and top with a single layer of the stuffed cabbage leaves, seam side down. Add another 1/3 of the sauerkraut + 1 teaspoon of caraway seeds and layer more stuffed cabbage. Top with the remaining sauerkraut and caraway seeds.
- Mix the large can of tomato soup with water and pour over top of all the stuffed cabbage and sauerkraut. Add the garlic and bay leaves.
- Cover and simmer on low for at least 2 hours. You can check and gently nudge with a wooden spoon, but do not stir or you will unroll all your work! Remove garlic and bay leaves before serving.
