Self-Love food? What’s that?
Today we’re talking about how your emotions and food connect together. In particular, about how powerful it is for you to nourish yourself through the practice of eating self-love food.
As the caretaker of your temple, when you give your body self-love food you’re practicing self-care and sending the signal to the reactionary section of your brain that: “Sister, you got this!”
Top 3 Self-Love Foods
Food is a primary form of self-love.
It provides physical nourishment, stabilizes your emotions, and improves your outlook on life. So nourish your body with the best possible self-love foods:
Protein balances your blood sugar and creates emotional contentment. When you eat protein, your body, brain, and pancreas all have what they need to maintain self-control and your emotions are level and steady.
Vegetables are nature’s fast food. They contain 98% of all the nutrients your body needs to function.
They’re also a gift from God.
When my clients ask, “What should I eat?” I say, “Eat food made by God.” God made the potato. God didn’t make the potato into chips.
- The Right Snacks
Feeling emotionally out of control has everything to do with the timing of your food.
When you feel hungry, that’s a signal from your body that it needs to be refueled. However, hunger pains aren’t the only physical sign of hunger. Lack of focus, irritability, nervousness, and light-headedness can all indicate your body’s need for refueling.
Providing yourself with the right snacks at regular intervals will keep you feeling like Wonder Woman!
To put you in control of your emotions rather than having your emotions control you with spur-of-the-moment food choices, nosh on these delicious snacks:
- Green pepper slices
- Cherry tomatoes
- Peanut or other types of nut butters
- Portable cheese sticks, if you’re on the go
Changing what you eat for snacks can radically improve your health and life.
Why Is This so Important?
- Food is a major driving force in your life.
Either you are driving this force, or this force is driving you. If you let food control you, you’ve lost the war.
But, you’ll win each battle, every time, by choosing the foods that balance you physically and emotionally.
- You deserve to feel good.
There’s a synergetic relationship between self-love and how it relates to food and health.
When you believe you deserve to feel good and start loving yourself more, you’ll naturally choose to nourish yourself with healthy foods.
That means you must make yourself a priority, if for no other reason than your desire to eat better.
The secret to eating better is to believe that you’re worthy of caring for yourself. When you do that, you’ll instinctively put your health and body first.
Know that you deserve to feel good.
Food is one of the greatest opportunities to nourish your body and spirit, so take every opportunity to practice self-love by nourishing your body and emotions with these 3 self-love foods.
