All of the above make for a pretty unhealthy relationship with food. Just as some people have a glass of wine after a long day, my reward has been a nice big slice of chocolate cake. For so many years I ate what I wanted, because it felt good, and tasted good. Although nutrition mattered, it didn’t matter as much as how good, bad foods tasted.
I have lost close to 40 lbs. recently. I have had to rethink my relationship with food. I am very mindful of what I eat and what I am fueling my body with. Amazingly, there is a big difference in a body fueled with junk, and a body fueled with healthy choices. I will show you my transformation in an upcoming post.
I thought I would show you tonight’s dinner. Now, a fresh salad with berries, nuts, goat cheese, sliced chicken, and crisp greens takes the place of what once would have been a meat dish with potatoes and sour cream and butter. Do I still cheat? Yes. Do I still make poor choices? Yes. Now though, I try and make good decisions 90% of the time, and it has paid off.
I am still a long way from being a poster child for clean eating, but I am trying one day at a time to make sure I eat more quality food vs. junk food. And I just wanted you to know.
How do you eat? Are you a junk food junkie, a strict vegan, or somewhere in the middle? I’d love to know what you think about food.
