What, When, Where, and How to Eat

fruits-1761031_1280Eating well is actually quite simple. I don’t know about you but my brain can get quickly overloaded with diet plans, recipes, and all the talk about whatever the fad food of the moment happens to be. I am going to make it super easy for you.

What To Eat?

Eat what the Earth provides us. The Earth grows beautiful vegetables, flowers, fruits, nuts, seeds, and protein sources for us. Eat things that feel like food, smell fresh, and look like it came out of the ground or ocean and/or  was produced by an animal that ate the food natural to its system.

When To Eat?

Eat when you are truly hungry, not before or after.

Where To Eat?

Here is where I will get into trouble. I say, eat where you are happy. I eat breakfast in bed if I can. Lunch and dinner is outside if possible. I have been known to eat right out of the pot, over the stove, or over the kitchen sink. My favorite is to eat while having a fabulous conversation. I love to eat alone too. Eat where you are relaxed and attentive to your food.

How To Eat?

Chew, chew, chew your food. The more you chew the more nutrients you will receive. Chewing is where digestion begins. Chew every bite with intention and gratitude. You will eat less and enjoy it more. When you don’t feel like chewing anymore, then consider your meal is finished no matter how much is left on your plate.

The secret is to keep it simple. There is no need to over think. Trust the smartest voice in your head; this is the one that has your best interest at heart. Listen and obey it when it says, “Put that Coke down and pick up your water bottle.” Listen to it when it says, “Eat eggs and oatmeal instead of doughnuts and muffins.” You and your body know all of this already. Be conscious and pay attention; you will feel satisfied and powerful.

  3. This is all good advice. Eat more greens and limit your meat intake.
    Here is an interesting site to help everyone think deeper about what is in your food and mass consumed products. The investigations contain some enlightening articles.

    1. Thanks JT. Your message was one of three legitimate comments that ended up in my spam folder. I was able to remove it from spam but I cannot seem to access it via the blog. Hopefully this is just a minor glitch that will be resolved soon. How are you and the family? Margie and I were talking about trying to get together before Christmas.

  4. I think the Pepsi voice turned my ears off and the doughnuts sneaked past unnoticed. I look pregnant but without any of the glow, except for the red face when the nurses in the surgery tell me off.
    Nadolig Llawen Steph which is Merry Christmas in my Country.
