Hi gorgeous ones,
Do you ever feel like eating whenever you feel sad, hormonal or emotional?
And then be all “OMG EMOTIONAL EATING! SO BAD!”
Here’s a ridunkulously wild, revolutionary new thought for you:
You don’t have to beat up on yourself for it.
You CAN actually eat to feel better.
Food can be our medicine.
How I Changed My Mindset
I remember the moment of the illumination.
I was beating up on myself for being an emotional eater.
And then I realised:
the problem isn’t that I want to eat.
The problem is what I eat when I feel that way.
I find that often when I feel anxious, shaky, emotional or light-headed it’s because I haven’t eaten good quality foods that day… I’ve just skipped along nibbling here and there. So my energy levels will be unbalanced
Just like tonight: I felt skittish and hormonal. At first I tried to write it off as being An Official Cranky Mood (TM), before realising: hang on, I haven’t eaten any good mood-enhancing foods today.
So I grabbed a handful of pecan nuts and a giant mug of herbal tea.
In the space of ten minutes I transformed from a sadcakes-who-wanted-to-spend-the-evening-in-bed to a bubbly yahoo happily burbling along, dancing to The Voice/Australia’s Got Talent/Glee/whatever musically themed show is going onnnn.
From 🙁 to 😀 to 10 minutes.
Thanks happy-making pecans!
(Pecans are seratonin-enhancers… just like what depression medication does! Upliftment of the seratonin = awesome!)
Nature is here to heal you
What if you are being called to eat because you are meant to be soaking up nutrients + healing love from mama earth?
What if part of what your soul is needing is some deep grounding, care of physical love that’s been born from a tree, or out of the earth?
We’d be as happy as butterflies harvesting the nectar from flowers.
I love knowing just how deeply healing + powerful food can be as medicine for our spirits and bodies.
What To Eat To Feel Better
There are SO many foods that are mood enhancers…
- Wedge a pecan into a date… it’s like a mini caramel pie packed with nutrients, feel-good seratonin + fibre! WEOOO!!
- Green smoothie
- Radiant chia pudding
- Lara Bars, Bounce Snack Balls or Yogi Bliss Trail Mix
- Protein calms anxiety
- Skip sugar (the highs + lows will just make you feel more emotional)
- Anything unprocessed with lots of scrumptious taste + nutrients (pretty much EVERYTHING in the Radiant Goddess plan)
I’m always so amazed at the difference food medicine can make to healing + reviving my body, mind + spirit. It’s just such a mega blessing + I’m so excited to keep learning more + more, refining more + more, glowing more + more.
love + shininess + radiance!
