Connecting with my food on a deeper level
Updated: Mar 25
Connecting with my food on a deeper level.
I've been experimenting with creating meals that are even more healing, nutritious, and energetic than I used to make.
For the last 8 months, I have been implementing and practicing ayurvedic teachings on cooking and creating balance in the body through food and proper food combining. I am thoroughly enjoying this learning experience and altering my eating habits as I learn more.
My body feels cleaner and healthier than before, and I love that I can nurture and guide my children along this ayurvedic path of health, wellness, and holistic living.
Things I have significantly reduced or removed from our diet:
Processed (bleached or enriched) wheat and flour (read labels on bread, crackers, cakes etc. before purchasing)
Refined sugars (this includes agave, rice syrups, cane sugar, brown sugar etc.)
Store bought plant-based milks (most contain a variety of additives)
Products with canola or vegetable oils (always read ingredient labels)
Highly processed foods and packaged foods
Tofu and soy
Frozen foods and drinks
Table salt (replaced with natural mineral salt like Himalayan pink salt)
After a period of time of reducing these types of foods, my body naturally became more sensitive to them, showing me that they were never serving me in the first place. It's all about practicing self-discipline, appreciation, and deepening the connection with our body and the food we eat.
This is a huge reason why I try to eat homecooked meals on a regular basis and eat out only once or twice a week. I also carefully select where I chose to eat.
