I love to eat! Don't you?!
I love the smell of different foods and spices cooking. I love the sound of pots and pans in the kitchen. I love the sounds of the food sizzling in the kitchen.
Sadly, with all the pressure to look "perfect", whatever that means, many women have grown to dislike food or to eat loads of food that is full to toxic chemicals that only do us more harm.
The trick is to eat real whole foods and as little processed foods as possible. This does mean getting into the kitchen, but it also means allowing your body to get into the shape and weight it's meant to be in.
I have very little processed foods in my home. In fact I can name them: olive oil, condiments, bread, pasta, tortillas, chips and fig bars. Everything else I make. And yet, those products are made with real food ingredients. I avoid any processed or non-food ingredients. The reason that they don't do my body good.
If you listen and read your body, you will see that not everything you purchase is good for you...especially "foods" with ingredients that are not food.
When you eat look for some signals that may indicate that what you're eating is not good for you.
- Does your skin break out?
- Are you bloated?
- Are you constipated?
- Are you nauseous?
- Are you lethargic?
- Are you moody?
All of the answers to these questions can be first corrected by the foods or non-foods you're eating. If you do eliminate processed foods and continue to have problems I would talk to a nutritionist or dietician to find out if you have a food allergy and dermatologist if you continue to have skin issues. These professionals can and do help.
Once you learn to listen to your body and enjoy real foods that come from the earth, you will see how much eating healthy isn't just a trend that you may be following but a yummy experience.
