Learn to Love Your Food

Food is not the enemy. This is an important lesson to learn and remember whether you’re on the path of losing weight or trying to maintain a healthy balanced life.
I’ve been reminded of this again and again these last few days while taking time out at the Hacienda Retreat in Granada, Spain.
As well as working hard, both physically and spiritually, I am being served the most amazing food to nourish my organs.
We’re eating a wide range of foods including fats, good carbs, and protein.
We’re being taught the importance of loving our food, taking pride in cooking it, and then taking time to eat it.
There is no bad food. It’s our perception of food that makes it bad.
I’m not saying go on an expedition of gorging on chocolates, but if you did want chocolate, don’t tell yourself that you’re being ‘naughty’ or that it’s ‘bad’.
Have it, take your time over it and enjoy it and then forget about it,
Equally when you come home from work, don’t think, ‘oh I can’t be bothered’.
Instead think of it as a way of fuelling your body.
Plan ahead and buy the ingredients, take pride in cooking it and then take time cooking it.
When it comes to basics, what’s the most important thing you have before anything else?
It’s your body, your health, and without health you have nothing.
So remember that at your next meal time. Food is there for our survival and enjoyment. Food is not the enemy. It’s there to be enjoyed too.
