I let my body make my decisions. Over time I’ve learnt that listening to my body works. Going against it backfires – resulting in either emotional upset or physical unwellness. Choosing food is one of the most significant areas in which I follow the ‘trust my body’ method.
There are so many schools of thought on nutrition, all that external information can be confusing. I do pay attention to teachers of nutrition and food who I trust. This provides me with my baseline guidance. But in the moment to moment decision of ‘What should I eat now?’ I ask my body.
This afternoon it said, ‘Digestive biscuits and tea.’ So thats what I’ve been enjoying. Nothing organic or raw; nothing artisan or rare. Just basic, childhood-memory-invoking, comforting Mcvities digestives and a cuppa. And just like that, I feel so much better than I did a few hours ago.
