What does this mean to you?
Are you tuned in to your body’s individual needs? Or are you a little lost in the noise?
These days there are so many opinions, ideas, fads, diets and advice, all readily available. Some may indeed be of help but generally speaking, it all seems to add to the noise and confusion.
Recently, I was listening to friends discuss their various food habits, fads and diets and I realized that so many of us are simultaneously obsessed with and in fear of food.
Essentially - food - a vital resource for our survival, has become a source of much confusion, angst, fear and overwhelm.
Modern day life has seen us become more and more busy. This constant state of hustle, bustle and busy-ness brings us out of connection with our ‘self’ and we begin valuing another’s opinion (rather than our own) because we’re no longer tuned in to what our body is needing - physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically.
This can lead us into a vortex of confusion as we listen to (and take on) conflicting advice in terms of food - fads, diets, concepts and everything in between. It doesn’t seem to help either that information is so readily available and everyone now seems to be an expert on what (and how) you should be eating.
When really, the only real expert on YOUR body is YOU (or if you’re healing from a particular issue, then a qualified nutritionist who has no agenda, other than supporting your health and wellness journey, allowing you to thrive). For the majority of us, eating well is actually relatively simple. Eat the most nutrient dense foods that serve YOUR body, 80-90% of the time (otherwise you lose the enjoyment of food and that’s not fun). I think Micheal Pollen says it best - “Eat real foods. Mostly plants. Not too much. “
So keep it simple.
Eat for YOUR body.
Enjoy and savour your food. Your body will thank you (and thrive). G xx
Ps. Any great recommendations for food places in Melbourne greatly appreciated. 😉 #lovemyfood
