food-brings-people-together-on-many-different-levels-its-nourishment-of-the-so-403x403-nk8j10In our society we spend quite a bit of time focusing on dieting (ie. Eating less, eliminating food groups, skipping meals) to lose weight, fit a certain size and/or an arbitrary number on the scale.
How many of you think of food in terms of nourishment and what different foods provide for our bodies?
What if weight loss also comes with being malnourished? Many weight loss programs/suggestions come with the elimination of carbohydrates for example. This means decreasing the best fuel for your brain, decreasing your potential fiber intake and minimizing your options for vitamins and minerals.
What about eating that favorite food from childhood? In the same form, not “comfort food made healthier”. How does that impact your emotional experience? Sometimes nourishment means feeding your soul.
Food provides so many nutrients for our bodies to work, all day every day, to do amazing things. Outside appearance can provide a false story of what goes on inside. I know people who get labeled “healthy” because of their weight yet they lack proper nourishment. What if we spent more time talking about this and feeding our bodies appropriately?
