I have a feeling, more than just a hunch, that you weren’t expecting to open this newsletter and find a photo of this bowl of rice. White rice. Plain white rice. Nice photo, right? Just unexpected, and that’s ok. Read on, please.
This week’s recipe is a different sort of recipe. It’s a recipe for how to feel in your body, instead of what to cook or bake. I want you to start with this: feed yourself what you want, when you want it. Simple words, but not always a simple action.
YOUR BODY KNOWS WHAT IT NEEDS
We have all conditioned ourselves to eat certain foods and to avoid others, some foods more intentionally than others. Why do we do this to ourselves? What do these messages mean - how do you react to them and why? I can tell you, and I'm confident in this knowledge, that deprivation leads to bingeing - to eating more than you intended to eat. Bingeing often leaves the body in physical pain and always lead some the mind to emotional turmoil. Nothing is worth that amount of output of energy.
How do you know what your body needs, when it tells you what it wants? Let me be a resource to you, to help guide you through this process. I have decided to re-open my private nutrition consulting practice. I am dedicated to working with individuals who are ready to make a change in their lives, in their family's lives, in their homes. I am committed to health, to wellness, and to sharing my knowledge and expertise. I'm available to meet in-person or online, whichever suits your needs best. I am here for you.
Wishing you a relaxing weekend, full of delicious food, health & wellness.
Ingredients: (note - use organic whenever possible)
1 C of whatever your heart desires
Take a seat, unfold a napkin. Eat slowly, savoring and enjoying each bite. Ask yourself "How do I feel? Am I calm, am I content, am I satiated?". If the answer is yes, put down your spoon and walk away from the table. If the answer is no, continue to enjoy whatever is in your bowl, periodically asking yourself the questions over again. Find your YES.
