Today’s Mantra: I Am What I Eat
Pete Evans posted his food day recently to a storm of controversy…and may I say bullying? People guffawed his “activated almond” consumption and “alkalised water” drinking.
It is because what he was eating was outside most people’s version of “normal” that he has been made a target. I applaud the health conscious chef but what I think doesn’t matter.
What you put into your mouth is deeply personal and born of habit, culture and taste. I’ve been guilty of “bullying” my husband and family about their choices because my health education is screaming to me “guide them, guide them”. I care about their health, well-being and longevity but in the end it’s their choice.
I love healthy food. I crave it. I love salads (always dressed) and the world of vegetable dressing is opening up to me after some amazing dishes recently. So much better than plain old steamed veges, though of course there is a place for them in the world.
Every diet for every person will be different everyday.
I think as long as you feel healthy and happy something you are doing must be right!
What does your food day look like? I’d love to have a peek into your kitchen.
