Manage Your Mantra
Do you feel that junk food is a forbidden, guilty pleasure? Would you still be tempted if you thought of it as fat-laden, overly processed, or disease-promoting? Perhaps if we thought of whole foods as nutritious and tasty – rather than “healthy” or “weird” – we would be inclined to eat more of them. The psychology surrounding food can have a huge sway on our preferences!
Reconsider your food beliefs this week. Instead of thinking “that’s pretty good… for a healthy food” enjoy the flavors and think about the nutrients you’re getting. Instead of saying “I can’t try that…” have at least one bite!
