When you approach food, think about how it is going to nourish you.
Ask about where the food came from and what it took to get to your plate. Appreciate the flavors and the textures and make it an experience in wholesomeness rather than a chore.
Move your body in the way that moves you so that it is enjoyable and it’s something that you want to incorporate into your weekly routine.
Try to eat as many meals as you can with your family, food has a way of bringing people together, creating memories, nostalgia, anticipation.
Develop a good relationship with food and your body so that it takes care of you for years to come.
One of my favorite quotes, “Be careful of your thoughts, your thoughts become your words. Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions. Be careful of your actions, your actions become your habits. Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character. Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny.”
