I thought this Nutrition Bite seemed appropriate for the holiday.
Sara B Consulting principle #5 – Schedule snack time
Who doesn’t love that warm baked cookie or chocolate-caramel filled egg?
In my consulting I try to teach people to have no “guilty” feelings about food. This feeling should have no relationhip what so ever to food. Guilty is what you feel for breaking a law, telling a lie, or being a bully……..not for eating.
If we feel guilt then we are not managing our well being. I have no cheat foods….I enjoy my cheesecake, cookies, ICE CREAM, and cake…the kicker…I know how to manage it. I don’t keep them around, I enjoy sharing dessert with my husband at a fancy restaurant, I don’t do “diet junk food”…what’s the point, and I train my butt off which gives me a little more flexibility. As my #9 principle goes… it’s what you do 90% of the time that matters. So DON’T feel guilty about the 10% or you’ll go crazy!
Food is our fuel. “Eat to Live, not live to eat.” Benjamin Franklin
Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
