What, When, Where, and How To Eat
Eating well is actually quite simple. I don’t know about you but my brain can get quickly overloaded with diet plans, recipes, and all the talk about whatever the fad food of the moment happens to be. I am going to make it super easy for you.
What To Eat?
Eat what the Earth provides us. The Earth grows beautiful vegetables, flowers, fruits, nuts, seeds, and protein sources for us. Eat things that feel like food, smell fresh, and look like it came out of the ground or ocean and/or was produced by an animal that ate the food natural to its system.
When To Eat?
Eat when you are truly hungry, not before or after.
Where To Eat?
Here is where I will get into trouble. I say, eat where you are happy. I eat breakfast in bed if I can. Lunch and dinner is outside if possible. I have known to eat right out of the pot, over the stove, or over the kitchen sink. My favorite is to eat while having a fabulous conversation. I love to eat alone too. Eat where you are relaxed and attentive to your food.
How To Eat?
Chew, chew, chew your food. The more you chew the more nutrients you will receive. Chewing is where digestion begins. Chew every bite with intention and gratitude. You will eat less and enjoy it more. When you don’t feel like chewing anymore, then consider your meal is finished no matter how much is left on your plate.
The secret is to keep it simple. There is no need to over think. Trust the smartest voice in your head; this is the one that has your best interest at heart. Listen and obey it when it says, “Put that Coke down and pick up your water bottle.” Listen to it when it says, “Eat eggs and oatmeal instead of doughnuts and muffins.” You and your body know all of this already. Be conscious and pay attention; you will feel satisfied and powerful.
