After years of navigating my own personal thoughts on food and eating the below quote from the quirky raw foodist David Wolfe absolutely reflects how I feel about eating healthy and what I’d like to portray to my friends, family and clients. Being healthy is not about willpower or deprivation and it’s no longer driven by vanity like my teenage years.
“Being healthy has everything to do with having a good time – it has nothing to do with pain and suffering. It has nothing to do with forcing yourself to do anything. It has nothing to do with over disciplining yourself to the point of agony. It has everything to do with joy and happiness – that is what health is about. And if food is activating that in you or making the food is activating that in you then you’re on the right track.”
What’s your definition of being healthy?
