The Good Nutrition Philosophy
Good Nutrition is more than the food you eat.
Good Nutrition is having a healthy relationship with food.
It is eating for nourishment and pleasure.
It’s being able to eat foods you enjoy.
It’s being able to stop eating when you're satisfied.
It’s being able to eat and enjoy food for reasons besides hunger.
It’s being able to eat and move on with your day… Good Nutrition has no room for shame or guilt.
Good Nutrition is eating healthfully because you want to and it leaves you feeling good not because you feel like you have to.
Good Nutrition is being in tune with your body, trusting and honouring it.
Good Nutrition is about enjoying and savouring the foods you love, not depriving yourself of the foods you enjoy.
Good nutrition is being mindful of nutrition and moderation.
Good Nutrition is slowing down to eat because you know when you are present with your food you enjoy the experience tenfold.
In short, Good nutrition is about having a healthy relationship with food, eating in balance and moderation and doing so in a way that leaves you feeling good.
