How to find clarity in a sea of dietary confusion
Having lunch with a friend yesterday she asked me if I had any food restrictions. I normally don’t like to be “high maintenance” about my food but responded with “I stay away from grains, dairy, and sugar”. And, to be honest, it felt really good to express my needs. I’ve chosen a path of health - nutrition, being an integral part - and I shouldn’t feel ashamed about those choices. Nor should you.
I’m committed to avoiding dogmatism and currently see a huge piece of my job as sharing the ideas I find very compelling and worthy of contemplation while personally running experiments on my body (and in our family) while encouraging you to consider doing the same. Recent research has shed light on the need to go beyond doctrine in order to find what works for us individually.
Since this blog is focused on food, let me ask this of you: what does your body need this Spring in terms of food?
For me, the answer is clean, nourishing and honest ingredients.
Ask the question, listen and respond by eating mindfully.
