Do you practice self-love?

By now we know that what we put into our bodies can profoundly affect our overall health and well-being.⁣

During holidays, vacations, celebration I may vary from what I usually eat and I’ve learnt to do with no guilt but just enjoyment (which has taken me a long time to get there). ⁣

But at some point my body is like “Aren’t you done yet, sis? DAMN!”⁣

I feel it. I know it. ⁣

I may not sleep as well, a lil more sluggish, digestion is off, energy levels and mental alertness is not as sharp.⁣

Now imagine repeating that constantly. Many are living in a chronic state of being over fed and undernourished. ⁣

But it starts with self-love.⁣

I love myself with each dish I cook and each bite I take because it is going into the ONLY body I will ever have!⁣

I park the words “healthy” and “unhealthy” because I don’t need the shame that goes along with them. Eating the slice of cake with negative thoughts is much worse than just eating the cake. ⁣

Your body feels and reacts to whatever your brain is thinking and saying.⁣

This is why cooking your meals goes beyond just nourishing your body. ⁣

It is 𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳-𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲 (not the “I’m gettin’ my nails did type), the tangible part - cooking. ⁣

It is 𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳-𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲, the emotional act- appreciating and loving eat bite you take.⁣

If you are new to cooking and feel overwhelmed, just pick 3-4 easy recipes that you enjoy, rotate the protein, veggies and grains to add diversity each week, and do this until you feel ready to add more recipes to your repertoire. ⁣

And then… see the magic happen:)⁣
