No 'good' or 'bad' foods




Often we can find ourselves attaching morality to food such as “this food is bad” which can in turn, become a sub-conscious belief system “therefore I am bad”. Having a positive relationship with food means removing the morality you associate with food.

-

Food is not moralistic. It is food. It’s important we check the language we use around food.

-

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 person (& / or ourselves!), then they’re 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 if you need to.
