Happy Celebrating & Happy Eating

july-4th-burgerIt’s Memorial Day today and we are honoring and celebrating all of the U.S. Service men and women who lost their lives serving our country. Many of the freedoms we now enjoy are due to their supreme gift, and we are forever grateful to them.

Many of us will be celebrating this national holiday with a barbeque or other get together that involves eating foods that aren’t normally on our healthy diets or simply aren’t foods we regularly allow ourselves to enjoy. A few specific treats come to mind – hot dogs and hamburgers (on a bun), bbq ribs, gooey potato salad, baked beans, cookies, brownies, and cakes. For some of us, there is a certain amount of guilt associated with eating these foods. This is for you…

Are there certain foods and beverages that excite you? When you think about eating them do you salivate? Do you look forward to them so much that you get a physical sensation or an “emotional buzz”?

When you have these positive feelings about food or anything else, this is good for your body.

Go with it, and give yourself over to it. As you consume them, be mindful and savor each morsel. Allow yourself to indulge and totally enjoy the process. As you experience real culinary pleasure and bring all of your senses into the mix, you are raising your vibration and sending endorphins throughout your body.

This is truly good for you.

If, on the other hand, you have feelings of guilt or anxiety when you think about eating them or after you have consumed them, then it is best to rethink and reframe your feelings about these foods. Any time you mix negative emotions with eating, you are filling your cells with toxins, bringing slow and low energy to yourself, and you’re doing a big disservice to your physical body as well as your psyche.

Get clear about your feelings as they relate to food and either choose to enjoy the process completely or steer clear. The key to making food work for you, is to clear up any emotional baggage you have surrounding it and be mindful of your choices.

Choose wisely, choose with your heart, and Mangia, Mangia!  Now, that’s Powerful!
