For me there are two reasons food becomes important (and by important I mean becoming the focal point of your day/ all encompassing/ all you think about) 1. Hunger 2. We have learnt to use it emotionally
And what I have found is that moving away from both of these require us to listen to our bodies and then to honour what they are telling us.
Once we do this I think food becomes less important somehow - yes we can enjoy it, love eating it even - but each meal no longer holds the same weight and magnitude, and so it doesn’t matter if it is ‘perfect’ or not
For example this banana bread was lovely. It is my fave snack at the moment. But once upon a time the fact that I forgot to put the oil in (darn it) and thus it being a little soggy would probably have resulted in me throwing the whole thing in the bin. Now however I can accept it’s not perfect and just eat it anyways to help me stay full until dinner. #thisiswhatrecoverylookslike
