The first rule is that theirs no rules. You need to make food work for your life. Eat in a way that makes you feel loved.
Health starts in the kitchen- The more you cook. The more control over what goes into your food and body.
Eat real food– stay away as much as you can from anything processed.
Variety is king- Stay away from fads and eating the same thing over and over again. Eat local, organic and in season.
“3-Rs of a non vegetarian”
Refine– Higher quality think organic, grass fed, no antibiotics, wild.
Replace– with greens and vegetables.
John Robins -Food as Medicine 2014.
Don’t reward yourself with food. You are not a dog- Find other things that make you feel good like a hot tub, watching your favorite movie or just being grateful.
Be kind to yourself. ¨Talk to yourself like you talk to a friend¨ Brene Brown. Remember its a journey so even if you don’t make the best choices today you always have tomorrow to make better ones.
Find your Zen- For some is meditation, for others its yoga, for me its dancing like a crazy cat lady. The more in touch you are with your body, the less stress you will feel, the more you will be able to listen to what it’s trying to tell you.
Eat greens. Drink water. Sleep-
Breath-If all else fails.
