MY LIFE Day 7
I try to prepare my own food and eat at home as as often as I can.
I’m currently traveling for work and rented an condo through Airbnb so I could have access to a kitchen.
So why do I do this??
1. It is only way I can have a somewhat of a handle on what is going into my food. I am lactose intolerant and a mistake on this front can be brutal.
Waiters and takeout people might mean well, but I have learned many lessons the hard way on this. I stay away from sugar and flour as a lifestyle/dietary choice. The longer the time away from these foods, the greater the impact if a label is misleading or an ingredient is forgotten on the menu
2) The more connected I am to what is going into my food, the better energetically. What we eat truly becomes our cells, our blood, our everything- so I might as well pick high quality ones versus junk food.
I would prefer my thoughts and ideas be generated from fresh vegetables and locally sourced salmon than cheez balls and cookie dough in a jar.
3. I can plan for the week ahead, so less wasted food which equates to money.
4. True portion control is an option as measuring spoons and my kitchen scale is handy. I don’t always weigh and measure everything I eat anymore, but I have for long periods of time, so I am pretty confident in how much I am eating.
Don’t misunderstand me, I will go out to restaurants and do not always love cleaning up the kitchen.
The benefits of planning ahead, and sticking to my food protocol are significant.
