Uncovering the Influence of Transitioning Consumption Practices on Consumer Food-Choice Decision-Making Behavior

Concepts from Practice Theory are applied to explore consumers’ motivational conflicts and ambivalence while making food decisions. Findings reveal the approach-avoidance strategies consumers use to mitigate food-choice paradoxes.
