It’s Food-Sanity Friday! There are so many little bits of great food and body wisdom on the Twitterwebs-so I’ve compiled my favorites of the week here. Let me know what you think, and please feel free to share your own.
“We think about food constantly, except when we’re eating it.” Do you “check out” when you eat? Practice awareness. @balancedeating
Who we are is who we choose to be, and at any moment we can choose peace, joy and love instead of chaos, drama and negativity. [I'd say that the same can apply to what we eat.—Sunny] @walterdoc
Sometimes “I want a brownie” means “I want love,” “I want attention,” “I want comfort,” or “I want rest.” @EatWhatYouLove
You can’t know when there’s anything you can do to improve a problem if you’re eating to block awareness of the problem. @normaleating
I’ll end with a really important one: If any of you want extra help, have questions about eating disorders or bingeing or want a referral to a therapist, this National Eating Disorders Association hotline is free and anonymous:
