I will not Quit!
That’s right, I’m boycotting the ‘quitting,’ the ‘toxic,’ the ‘poison’ food hate out there and calling for a revolution of FOOD LOVE! – The freedom to LOVE and EMBRACE all foods, regardless of fat, sugar or phytonutrients; to make well informed food choices, free of propaganda and commercial bias; to truly let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food –by nurturing the body, mind and soul through virtue of empowerment and celebration, rather than guilt or fear of fear of being shun from ‘the tribe.’
I want to see a movement; let me hear you say: ‘I embraced broccoli’; I choose the, ‘The Guilty-free way’; ‘Sweet Potato’ changed my life – I LOVE FOOD and I LOVE MY BODY!!!
With that now off our chests we can sit back and enjoy the feel good movie of the year, ‘That ‘wide variety of nutritious foods’ movie.’… Mmmm makes me feel like eating apples and other unprocessed goodness.
The choice is yours and the choice is easy – eat unprocessed foods, eat a wonderful variety of whole foods, enjoy bounties of fresh fruits and vegetables, wholegrains, seeds, nuts, choose meat and dairy if you wish.
Free food from its stigma and take back your right to enjoy food!
If there are foods you love, find opportunity to enjoy them, to savour them and appreciate them – don’t avoid them, don’t feel guilty, don’t hide your face in the pantry and pretend you’re looking for something while you shove four tim tams into your mouth at once and pray nobody asks you anything for the next five minutes while you struggle to breath and chew – proudly break out the packet of tim tams and share them with your friends and family.
Now let’s hear a testimony from a satisfied customer: “I didn’t quit anything and I’m glowing, I’ve maintain my body weight thanks to the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating and regular exercise – oh and taking the time to relax, enjoy my family, my food and my sleep. The transformation has been amazing - that’s glorious food, I couldn’t have done it without you.”
*Please note ‘satisfied customer’ may or may not be fictitious - I take no accountability either way.
