Food is such a personal and emotional topic.
There are many people among us who have or are suffering from #eatingdisorders like #bulimia #anoerexia #orthorexia #overeating .. and there are many others suffering from allregies, sensitivities and intolerances.
Intolerances can be towards common foods like tomatoes, cashews, potatoes, rice, roti, oranges etc etc.
So, please be mindful of this when you are offering food to others. DO NOT FORCE anyone to eat.
Respect when someone says no. I know we show our love through food. When we love someone we want to feed them and fill up their tummies.
Instead, meet that person at their level. When someone says no to food, they are not rejecting you nor your love. They said no to the food maybe because they simply do not want to eat or due a more complex underlying issues.
Not everyone is ready to share their health history with you. So please, when someone says no, respect their decision.
It is so hard for someone to say no to someone who is coming from a place of love. But when they muster up the courage to say no, please respect that.
Ask what that person would like to eat, maybe some fruit or nuts or carrots or cucumbers. Give them that , but do not force.
