For me, this means cooking and eating foods that are alive and full of nutrients- rather than ones that leave me feeling heavy and tired. Instead of saying, I’m not going to eating dairy or sugar, I gently nudge myself away from the mindset of “rules”, into the realm of feelings, remembering how wonderful it feels to feel vibrant, alive and energized.
Because cooking is a big part of my work and everyday life, I feel more grounded to the earth and its cycles when I prepare food that actually comes from the ground, when it’s grown in its true season. And yes, of course it is much harder in winter to always stick to this!
