What is food to you?
- Is food love?
- Is food community?
- Is food energy?
- Is food pleasure?
- Is food sustenance?
- Is food power?
- Is food happiness?
- Is food life?
- Is food nutrients?
- Is food compassion?
- Or is food junk, chemicals, toxins, pesticides, herbicides, and “fast and easy”?
I ask, because if I told you, “if you changed how you ate and it could cure your pain”, would you do it?
If you ate to live rather than lived to eat, what would it look like?
If you ate nutrient dense foods, and food for sustenance, can it still bring you pleasure? You know that it could bring you health.
Does that resonate with you?
Your body needs nutrients for life. Feeding your body chemicals can not sustain you, which is why we are seeing so much disease.
- 10% of the population currently has diabetes.
- 33% of our population is pre-diabetics and will have diabetes in 5 years.
- 39% of our population has or will get cancer
- 25 million Americans have autoimmune disease, mostly females.
If you ate more nutrient dense foods, and could avoid all of this, would you do it?
Does this resonate?
“Why do you do what you do when you know what you know?”*
Can you eat nutrient dense foods that still bring you pleasure?
What would that look like?
Could you show love in ways other than food?
Could you enjoy community from other perspectives?
What if clean food could still bring you pleasure?
If you re-framed food to use real ingredients with real nutrients and still had yummy things to eat, would that bring you pleasure?
Could that bring you the same happiness?
If food made you healthy could it bring you more happiness?
