BREAKFAST!! Sometime i find it weird putting blueberries and bacon on the same plate, but I need my fruit!
I feel like i haven’t really opened up before on this, while my main focus is to post recipes, nutrition tips etc, I think its important that you guys are aware of why I am doing this. When I was in my teens I was quite overweight, shy, and looked down on myself quite a lot! I used food as an escape route as millions of others do, and while at the time food helped me, it also was the blame for my negativity etc. When I finished school at 18, I joined a gym that summer and went almost everyday and lost some of the weight, I was happy but still had moments of realization. I went to college in September that year in Culinary Arts (I know, more food 😂) and we were thought how to cook everything etc. That year during college because of social anxiety, I wouldn’t eat throughout the entire day apart from 1 apple. I felt that what I was doing was healthy and that everything was good but it wasn’t! I used to get headaches and dizziness because of a lack of food so would have an apple or water to try ease it. When i thought I was happy and healthy, I was the complete opposite. Then one day a friend of mine in college mentioned it to me and was worried for me, it clicked there and then that what I was doing was so wrong! I went home and started researching everything and anything on nutrition and I was so frustrated with what I was doing to my body. We only have the one body and it has to be cared for, and nourished when needed. Thats when I decided to register for the MSc in Culinary Nutrition to learn more about the body, the food, and how best to look after it. What I learned and am doing which sounds so simple, is eating in MODERATION, YES i spent a lot of tuition, and years of my life to find this out which sounds silly but its much more than that. Knowing the right food groups, their analogy, their benefits and detriments is KEY. So I’m on here sharing a story with a pic of my breakfast, that 3 years ago, I wouldnt have even thought of eating as i was too focused on losing weight. #mindfulness #eathealthy #nutrition
