Whether it’s day 1 of your intuitive eating journey or you’ve got a feel-good relationship with food but would love support navigating the occasional diet culture sneak attack (yes, those unexpected, subconscious thoughts happens to everyone! Even the most normal, laid back, in-tune intuitive eaters)…
I’ve got just what you need!
This simple question will help to:
Instantly reframe food fears
Swap judgment for curiosity
Cultivate deeper self connection
Enjoy a more nourishing relationship with food that supports you physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially
Shift into the parasympathetic nervous system (necessary for proper digestion and feeling calm, safe, and present overall)
Yes, one question really can do all that.
“What value does this food add?”
While you reflect on the value-add of the food, you can consider…
nutrition benefits (i.e., carbs for energy or fat for satiety)
social/emotional benefits (i.e., connection to heritage or communal celebration)
emotional benefits (i.e., comfort)
& anything else that comes to mind! Maybe it’s ease (HEY PB&J), behavior changes (i.e., fewer binges because you’re not restricting dessert!), or something personal to you!
Name a food and I promise you there is value.
Give it a try — I’d love to hear how it goes! And, if you’re struggling to figure out what value a food adds, feel free to reply to this email so I can help you find it.
