Our Relationship With Food And Health

Continuing with our theme of having a real relationship, or a true relationship with food, this week we’ll talk about another element of what we call the “Laws of Nutrition”, eating a wide variety of food.

Because every food has different amounts of the different nutrients we need, eating a wide variety of foods helps ensure that we are getting it all. Our bodies need different nutrients at different times depending on activity levels, age, pregnancy, etc. So, eating a wide variety of foods helps keep the reservoir of nutrients high to be available when they’re needed.

A fun way to select a wide variety is when you grocery shop. Stand in front of the produce section or the bulk section and see what you are drawn to. Settle and just check into your body’s wisdom and it will nudge you to make amazing choices. Try it and let us know what you find.

By listening to our inner intelligence, we are creating a real relationship with food, a relationship based on food being supportive and nurturing, rather than simply tasting good or distracting us when we feel stressed.

Today we’re sharing a dressing for veggies and salads that is part of a 9 day Liver Cleanse we’re doing. We are amazed how absolutely delicious this is and completely free of any oil. Try it. It’s truly good.
