Date your.... food?
We’ve all heard the self help phrase thrown all around the internet, “date yourself”. While this is cheesy (and I am a big proponent of it), I have a new cheeky catch phrase for ya, “date your food”. Basically, this is another way to bring in mindfulness into your life + diet. Let’s go break this down into what kind of relationship do you want to be in?
(food) relationship goals:
Someone who looks forward to see + spend time with me:
Actually enjoy the food I’m eating
Planning our next date ahead of time - not last minute scramble on what to do:
Meal + grocery prep
Takes the time to ask me how I’m doing:
Take my time eating/chewing each bite
After each time spent together, they leave me in a good mood:
Each meal makes me feel good and not like a piece of crap
A grateful partner for me just being mE:
Thanking my food each meal for what it’s providing me
(food) Relationship Issues:
One night stanD:
Do you like it quick, greasy and might leaving your insides burning?
Dragging your feet in a bad relationship:
Never knowing what you should buy, cook, eat, etc leaving you with a whole lot of hangry resentment.
Online Dating Addiction:
Are you addicted to swipping/pinning all the good looking meals or foods but never find ‘the one’ that you actually want to sustain a relationship with?
Think of it this way:
No matter what kind of issues you are having with your diet + wellness you just need change your perspective.
Dare to date your food.
