The Dreaded Month of January

I don’t think you need to only eat soup for a month and I definitely don’t think you need to try drinking charcoal lemonade or a juice cleanse.
I think it’s great if January motivates people to try to change their lifestyle with the goal of health… but I generally hate the way people seem convinced to do it. I didn’t write this piece to discourage people from changing their lifestyle but to encourage them to love themselves at any size and know that the number on the scale doesn’t equate to healthy or unhealthy. Small tweaks can change the trajectory of your whole life. Those are the things that will make you feel healthier, have more confidence and more energy. Shifting priorities can help you make up your mind to stop dieting and start living a happier, healthier lifestyle

‘Good For You’ doesn’t have to be Fresh.

We need to get back to the basics, stop blaming single factors for diseases and help people have a healthy relationship with food. This healthy relationship is multifaceted and includes but is not limited to cooking meals at home, eating with others, learning new cooking skills, eating less ultra-processed foods, eating more fruits and vegetables and being food secure.
Processed food is a buzzword, all processed foods aren’t unhealthy. A processed food is a food that has either physically or chemically been transformed or altered from its original state. Stop yapping about how awful processed foods are, you’re either missing the word ultra or not helping. No one needs to be afraid of frozen blueberries because they’ve been processed.
