All I’m thinking is how wonderful life is and how grateful I am to be able to recognize this feeling. I am also grateful for my healthy lifestyle choices. I love eating and I realized that we don’t need to starve ourselves or do crazy diets to feel good about ourselves. For me, a plant based diet allows me to eat delicious and very satisfying meals. 🌱💚 I always have breakfast, lunch, dinner and one to two snacks between meals.
I also have chocolates often. 🍫❤️ The problem is not the cacao, but the refined sugar, preservatives or unhealthy fats behind the chocolates… that’s why I make my own chocolates and desserts with healthy sweeteners like coconut sugar, maple syrup, dates or fruits… Though I have these desserts with moderation. Splitting the portions helps you eating with more moderation and helps train your brain to not eat more than you actually need or to not eat compulsive. Eating should be a moment that we enjoy ourselves and makes us feel good without any remorse later. 😋
When we have a healthy lifestyle our bodies are capable to detox easily and function better, preventing our bodies from getting diseases. And of course, when we are healthy we can have “those cheat days” and enjoy a birthday cake 🎂 or a pizza 🍕 without feeling guilty because we know next day we will be back eating clean.
