In my friend group I’m known as the Foodie because of my curiosity for food, documentaries and nutrition. Healthy eating was not always a priority of mine. When it finally became something important to me, it started to feel similar as to being in a healthy relationship.
Think about it. Healthy eating is like being in a relationship because in many ways people struggle with their relationship with food.
Do you remember the last time you were in a bad relationship? Eating foods that do harm to your body is putting yourself in that bad relationship. Leaving you stuck. Stuck in a bad relationship that will only grant you short term benefits. When you know they (food) don’t do your body justice but you can’t seem to move on from them.
Your relationship with food is a relationship with yourself. It is a choice and it does require time, effort and change. I choose to practice healthy eating to treat my body well, so that I can live well. What about you?
