Dr. Oz had Enza Menella and her family – husband Joe and children Alexa, Joseph and Amanda – on his show. Enza’s family is hungry to get healthy! They are a 100% Italian family that shows their love through food. The Menella family live down the street from Enza’s sister and mother, and all of them love to eat food.
Enza says that everything is always about the food – the bigger the meal, the longer the amount of time we get to spend together. Her husband Joe said he has gained 80 pound of love since getting married. All the children said they always feel full, and when their mom isn’t around, they know when they are full and want to stop eating. Enza said that growing up they always had fresh food and were told to finish everything on their plate. Dr. Oz gave Enza a term that applies nicely to my mother as well: A Food Pusher!
