We’ve been conditioned to be rewarded with unhealthy food. I am sure you’ve heard.. “If you finish your broccoli, you can have a piece of cake!” Food is there to nourish you. Not to be a burden, a stressor nor a reward for good behavior. After a week of hard work, you reward yourself with pizza and beer; nothing wrong with it occasionally if your body can process it, but you notice you are not feeling well afterwards. How was that a reward? What about rewarding yourself with a meal that nourishes your body and leaves you feeling good and energized. By changing our perception towards food, we can change our relationship with food.
