Eating with a healthy conscience is more important than eating healthy. That is what I wish to put forward to you today.
It’s what I call ‘thought for food’.
There seems to be such a crusade against all food that is not vegan and organic that the result is a population that seems to consume with guilt.
I personally believe that eating an apple with a guilty conscience is more harmful to the body than eating a piece of chocolate with gratitude.
You may not agree with me, but I’m standing my ground on this one.
â€œAll you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.â€
â€• Charles M. Schulz
There are so many people with little or no food, yet you eat the abundance of food in front of you with guilt. Give a small bit of food to someone who is hungry and they’ll eat it with nothing but gratitude.
â€œThere are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.â€
â€• Mahatma Gandhi
Do you want that hot-dog with ketchup, mustard and onions? Go for it; savour it. Do you want that entire bag of chocolate M&M’s? Help yourself!
Whatever diet you choose to adopt, do it and eat it with a healthy conscience. If you can’t afford luxury products, and your staple diet is cornflakes, bread and beans, so be it and eat it with gratitude.
Naturally, there is a small caveat. This attitude is not a licence to eat junk food all the time. It’s just about not making yourself feel guilty on the rare occasions that you do choose to indulge.
One special tip to help you with this new attitude towards consumption, is to learn to chew your food properly. Allow the mouth to do it’s part in the digestion process. Do not swallow your food until you have broken down the food.
It will take you longer to eat your food and as you chew, give thanks. Eat with a positive vibration and allow it to nourish you properly.
The perks of doing this is that your digestion will improve and it will boost your immune system.
