As we approach the last few days of my #12daysofresolutions I decided to focus one resolution on healthy eating. Diet and exercise are common new years resolution goals. Although important to healthy living, it commonly fails because we attach our results on many external factors (how others see us).
In order for lifestyle and behavior changes to shift, one must connect to the real reasons on why they want change. This comes from within. And it's time to start thinking about food differently.
Food is medicine. And nature provides the right foods that we need in order to survive. People who connect food to the nourishment of their inner-world find the most success. Food isn't meant to make us look like a supermodel, it's meant to nourish our organs, brain, bones, muscles and mindset.
You are what you eat. But you eat what you are. The gut-brain connection is complex, but the easiest thing to understand is that your mood dictates your food. Plants obtain energy not only from the soil, but also from the sun, the same star that energizes us.
