Food is just food
Updated: Jan 24
Often we can find ourselves attaching morality to food such as “this food is bad” which can in turn, then become a sub-conscious belief system “therefore I am being bad”.
Having a positive relationship with food means removing the morality you associate with food.
Food is not moralistic.
It is food.
It’s truly that simple.
Did you steal it from the shops? No.
So you don’t need to feel guilty or as if you’ve done something wrong. (Because you haven't!).
Over the next few days, self-check the morality you attach to food/certain foods when either talking to yourself, your kids, or the people around you.
We are all absorbing from our environments and we know that although these thoughts & comments may be well-meaning, if they instil fear, cognitive distortions and/or negativity into another human being (&/or ourselves!), then they are playing into more harm than help.
The good news, once we’re aware, we can create change & that’s pretty powerful.
It’s the little things.
So repeat: “Food is just food” & little by little food will just become food again.
Always reach out via a message if you need to :)
