Your Food Story

I know how important it is for you to eat food that tastes great and is nourishing. That food should deliver energy, delight, vigor, and well-being. I know because I can relate.

We have no choice but to eat food to stay physically alive; however, we can choose if we want our food to also serve up pleasure, joy, satisfaction, and peace. Your food experiences – traditions, culture, preferences, and dislikes – along with new awareness, will guide when you have to make food choices.

You might be saying...

  • I don’t think I have any food issues but sometimes I get cravings!
  • It would be great to find out what foods are best for me and my body.
  • The thought of another diet sickens me. I am tired of feeling deprived.
  • Please tell me I can still eat treats!
  • Honoring my heritage, observing tradition, and passing down legacy are important to me.
  • Eating food brings up draining emotions like fear and pain. I so want to move past them.
  • I would like to learn how to put food together that nourishes.
  • To be honest, I find eating food boring. It’s such a chore.

While having a few sleepless nights, some cravings and periodic low mood may seem harmless for the most part, stringing together weeks of these times can cause health problems. Do you have any harmful eating patterns or food triggers? Learning about these themes now can help to offset serious health consequences in the future.

I didn’t always enjoy food. Even though I grew up eating lots of wholesome food, over time I found it a burden to eat; I felt it an overwhelming task resulting in tension, lack of energy, negativity and other unlovely behaviors. Eating was just a job to get over with. You could say I was actually afraid of food!

Food is not the enemy

When I discovered that why I was eating and how I was eating was affecting my health, I chose to change my relationship with food. Now I recognize the importance of being mindful and accepting the beauty of food with its life-giving properties. I know it is available to nourish me, and that it is my friend, not my foe.

Why the Your Food Story program?

some-fav-recipes-from-100-mile-summer-2015Your food stories hold tremendous value. You can learn to unlock those experiences and bolster your wellbeing. You hold the keys: discover what you already know along and combine it with new information to radically improve your health.

There are a lot of nutrition programs on the market, but for the most part they only focus on what you should eat. I firmly believe that you are MORE THAN what you eat. Your food story includes why you eat, where you eat, how you eat, when you eat (and with whom), and what you eat. Your overarching food story is a mashup of them all.
