Food

 

A simplified approach to food. Served without a side of ego. 

 

We as a species are hardwired to find complexity unsettling and look for simple solutions to complex and multifaceted problems. But we allow our outlooks and mindsets to be clouded with alternative and unsubstantiated facts that prevent us from seeing the bigger picture:

That food should be enjoyed, unrestricted, delicious, and balanced. 

 

No dieting, no detoxing, and certainly no dogmas.

 

I have been vegan, high-carb, low-carb, paleo, keto, gluten-fee, and everywhere in-between. Fad diets have left me sick, anxious, pressured, worried, underweight, overweight, and fed-up. 

I have chilled out exponentially. I eat all the macros: fats, carbs, protein, and chocolate. I am not irresponsible about my choices and honour the ins and outs of nutrition by prioritizing what works for me. 

I understand how food choices and attitude are intermingled and the blind ignorance of privilege that can accompany them.

There is a process involved with coming to terms with one's relationship to food and the ways in which a moral hierarchy of food choices can shape this relationship. Check out my posts "I Used To Be A Holistic Nutritionist" &  "Food Manifesto" for more information.
