Five ways to give up restrictive eating so you can celebrate and enjoy food!
This is one of those posts that has been in my head for months... years... but I never could find the right words.
It was way too daunting of a task.
Sort of like when I couldn't come up with the words to write in the beginning of my cookbook.
Eventually, I did write the opening text of the cookbook, but only because I had to. I mean, I had a deadline, and it was either write it or have a blank space in my cookbook.
Being the perfectionist that I am, I don't feel 100% satisfied with the intro so I wanted to elaborate a little more about it.
And I think that leads me to this post and the live stream.

For so long, I controlled what I ate and drank. I didn't allow myself to celebrate completely when it came to food. Yeah, I'd have a piece of cake or a cookie but I felt guilty. I felt like I needed to earn it by working out extra. Or I felt like I had to compensate in other areas of my eating.
For so long, I wanted to write a cookbook with Nan but there was no way I could test all her recipes without the fear of gaining weight and losing control of my eating.
I'd love to know how you celebrate food.
Here are 5 ways that I celebrate food:
- Give yourself permission
- Listen to your body
- Trust your body
- Respect your body
- Forget perfection
