Are you tired of loosing weight, just to gain more back? Feeling restricted and hungry? What about the feelings of guilt when you inevitably cave and eat “illegal” food? It is time to…
Diets do not work because they are not sustainable. While it is true that short-term it is very possible to drop pounds, long-term is a different story. A diet doesn’t teach you about your connection with food, it doesn’t help you to make lifestyle changes, it doesn’t get you outside in fresh air. Diets will restrict your food and make you obsess over calories, or carbs, or fat…the list goes on. I believe diets are promoting an unhealthy relationship with food, which is essentially just digging a deeper hole.
Gardening does seem like a pretty weird suggestion instead of dieting right?
Absolutely not. Growing a backyard veggie patch will create a very healthy and appreciative relationship with your food. It gets you outside, moving around, connecting with nature while building a spiritual practice and connection. Growing it yourself will make everything taste better, you put your love in and the veggies will love you back! Think of how much more likely you are to actually eat your fresh, FREE, organic produce when it is just outside your door. Not to mention that gardening is a life skill that we should all have and TEACH TO OUR CHILDREN.
Gardening lets you think about food in a completely new and different way, as a living being, that nourishes you. Once you start caring for plants and eating them, it is a natural transition to whole foods. Which is a much more sustainable place to be in. Building a garden is super simple and I show you how right here.
It’s time to change your relationship with food from full of guilt and anxiety, to satisfaction and pride for your home-grown delicious meals.
Talk about nourishment right?
