5 Ways To Improve Your Relationship With Food
Life is full of relationships in one form or another, whether it’s with family, friends, kids or all of the above. All of them take time to work and the more effort we put in; we’re normally rewarded with stronger bonds.
The same goes for food. Food plays such a vital role in our lives and directly impacts not only our calorie intake, but the relationship with our own body. Having a negative relationship creates self-doubt and can ultimately lead to stress, which prevents us from enjoying other aspects of life.
If you’re currently experiencing some difficult feelings towards food, then cross over to Huffington Post, which has some great tips on how you can fix this complex relationship:
1. Watch Your Language
Can we just ban the term “guilt-free” right now? Saying something is guilt-free implies that food holds the power to make you guilty or that a food itself can be guilty. It doesn’t make any sense, takes the pleasure out of eating, and puts a negative spin on many delicious foods.
2. Make Something
Get into the kitchen, tap into your inner artist, and create something. Or harness the power of your inner mathematician and craft something with elaborately measured ingredients. Or play mad scientist and put Alton Brown’s food science recipes to work. Or, just lovingly slice up some veggies, toss some olives in a pretty dish, and serve yourself a nice hummus tray. You don’t have to fire up the oven, but you can if you want to.
Remember, you shouldn’t have to be constantly battling with food every day. Check out the article and discover how to ease the strangle-hold your diet has over you. Also, consider what about it leaves you feeling so powerless. Then, start to love your body once again!
