Hello loves, ❤
Happy Wednesday 🙂 It’s Wednesday here in Sydney, Australia AND… Winter is coming, brrrrr. I am having to pull out the knits, the sweaters, the big coats & the scarves.
We are here today to talk about, YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.
Now I am a big, firm believer on this – I cannot describe how much I believe in this.
The reason I am such a big advocate for this is bc I have experienced this first hand.
Now, as most of you all know over the last 4-5 weeks, I’ve been feeling really BLEH (thats probably the best way to put it) Now when I get into these mindsets, I either fall 1 of 2 ways.
1: EAT EVERYTHING IN SIGHT
2: DO NOT EAT AT ALL
When I am stressed, the above 2 pointers is what my body goes through.
Now, there was a good 5-6 day streak 2 weeks ago whereby I ATE EVERYTHING IN SIGHT. Chip, chocolate, lollies, McDonalds, pizza… Now even though this was satisfying my sweet tooth for about 3 seconds, the aftermath is what I felt the most.
I felt bloated, I felt lethargic, I felt so tired, I felt unmotivated, I felt so anxious, I felt depressed, I felt upset. I also noticed my face was getting a little pimply 😦
Now I know for a fact that this is due to the fuel (food) that I am putting into my body.
My body was literally running off sugars, sodium, artificial flavours, artificial sugars etc.
For example, you can’t expect a car to run good on crappy fuel.
Then last Monday I said to myself, I AM GOING TO STOP THIS & START FUELLING MY BODY.
I have chosen to not touch lollies, chocolate, fast food, junk food & even dairy.
I’ve noticed when I eat dairy, it tends to run straight through me (TMI, I know, I am sorry) & I also feel VERY bloated. Does anyone else feel this way?
I’ve switched out my milk to ALMOND MILK – Best choice I’ve made. Almond milk is delicious, I have been having this in my granola, in a oats & even in my hot chocolates (but I’ve even stopped the amount of hot chocolates I have been having)
Almond milk is healthy for you, please see the benefits below:
Reduces Blood Pressure
Maintains Healthy Heart
Improves Kidney Health
Vitamin E to Help Skin Health
I’ve been more aware of what I am eating & what I am putting in my body & also where it comes from.
Having said that, when we change what we eat & focus on being more healthy, this also changes our thought pattern, I feel so much more positive & energised. I am sleeping better, I am less anxious & I feel happy.
Has anyone ever had the same experience whereby they feel YUCK after eating fast food or junk food & then feel completely different after they eat healthy food?
I am hoping some of my lovely followers can relate to this ❤
Let me know in the comments below 🙂
Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
