Are you judging your food? Good? Bad?
We all have judgements about everything. Speaking as someone that has been working on my own judgements about life for years. I recently started looking at my judgement around food. Is food good, bad or neutral? What are your food judgements based on?
Food is neither good or bad. It’s neutral. How your body feels is what matters most. Your body will give you signs that will help you understand what feels good and what doesn’t.
Food is our life force. We think about it all day. What are we going to eat? With whom? We plan events and dates around food. It is an important part of our lives. And it can be the source of so much suffering and anxiety.
Which diet is the best: vegan, vegetation, raw, paleo, macrobiotics, low carb, high fat, and the list goes on and on. Each one claims that it is the best, with the research and the testimonials to back it up.
Almost everyone has a belief on what is healthy, and what is the best thing for you and the environment. And the most passionate ones will get on their soap box and preach about how everyone in the world should all eat a certain way. Hey, no judgement here. I used to be one of you.
But you know what, I found that it is not a very compassionate place to be. Judging others for their food choices.
So what, I am an acupuncturist and have years of training and experience. Yes, I have a lot of knowledge and resources, however, you know your body more than I do. You live with it. And if you don’t understand how to read and interpret the messages your body is showing you, that is where I come in.
This is where my expertise lays: guiding you to a place where you can understand what nutrition your body needs.
No Diet. No judgement. You learn what foods feel good in your body.
I don’t know about you. But I LOVE food. I love cooking it, eating it and sharing it. I use it medically and recreationally.
And I love having FREEDOM. Releasing my judgements about my food has given me a certain level of freedom. I choose to eat healthy and mostly plant-based foods because that is what feels good in my body. And I am happy about my decision. And your diet will look completely different, because that is what your body needs.
I invite you to think about your judgements around food and your diet. And see where you can be more compassionate, loving and nourishing towards yourself.
“Be less of a judge and you will be surprised that when you become a witness and you don’t judge yourself, you stop judging others too. And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding.” —OSHO
