Eating a healthy diet comes naturally to me. Between my education on America’s food system and paying attention to my body’s specific needs, I eat a very clean diet of (mostly) unprocessed foods that are easy for my body to digest. I have a sensitive digestive system, and over the past decade, I’ve learned to select foods that I enjoy so I never feel deprived. In addition, the foods I choose are nutrient-rich and full of healthy fats which helps me maintain a healthy weight and feel satisfied with each meal. A simple guideline:
- listen to your body’s hunger cues and eat accordingly
- pay attention to your digestion and adjust accordingly
- educate yourself about the foods you eat – do you recognize those ingredients?
- educate yourself about groceries – do you know where it comes from?
Because I love healthy food, and wanted to learn more about creating well-balanced meals to fuel my body, I took a Nutrition course in the fall of 2010. I’m currently enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Nutrition plays a significant role in physical health, mental wellness, disease prevention and healing. I’m not a medical professional or a Registered Dietitian, but I love to open the lines of communication to discuss nutrition and wellness. We can learn a lot from each other!
