Love Your Food = Love Your Body = Love Yourself

“I Love You Just the Way You Are”, Billy Joel

If you want to be really healthy get involved in preparing your own food and put some love into it!

This month when we celebrate lovers and relationships, it’s important to notice that we each have a relationship with food—and that this relationship is often far from loving. Many of us restrict food, attempting to control our weight. We often abuse food, substituting it for emotional well-being. Others ignore food, swallowing it whole before we’ve even tasted it.

What would your life be like if you treated food and your body as you would treat your beloved – with gentleness, playfulness, communication, honesty, respect and love? The next time you prepare your food, do so with awareness and without guilt, and when you eat it enjoy all the healing and nourishment it brings to you.
