Have you heard the phrase -- "exercise gives you endorphins"? It's true! When you workout, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. What these endorphins do is lower your perception of pain and create a positive feeling in your body, similar to that of an opiate like morphine. Feeling blue, stressed or just want to feel GREAT? Let's go workout!
"Diet culture has sucked so much joy out of eating that we now use foods in ways that it was never intended.
We've forgotten that food is essentially there to sustain us, to nourish us, to be enjoyed and loved.
We've neglected our relationship with food so much that we just grab things and shove them into our mouths without a second thought.
We don't even experience food's tastes and textures before it's swallowed and we're on to the next thing."
- Mel Wells
Eat foods that make you feel good after
Eat foods that nourish you rather than deplete you
Eat foods that make you happy (not just in the moment)
Treat your body how it deserves to be treated
Heal your relationship with food and your body because they are intertwined
