Greetings – I am a great observer of people – I love to
watch them do all sorts of activities.
Most notably I like to observe people’s relationship to food
– food (and the consuming of it) is every where in our society. Some of my latest observations inspired the
article below. I hope all is well with
you and that you are enjoying the spring/

out of your food box Experiment with a
food you’ve never had, think you hate or have not had in years. Tofu would be a good one – as for
many it falls into one of these categories.

What You Eat is a Reflection on You.
By Brenda Jaeck
heard the expression – “You are what you eat.” What does your food say about you? Here are some examples and some possible interpretations.
Fast Food Hum, you must be
pretty important – you don’t even have time to eat! NOT.
Who is REALLY that busy – that they don’t have time to
eat? We all set our priorities. What are yours?
Food The word cheap says it all. Do you value your health? I always say “You can pay now or your
can pay later.” Think about how
much cheaper (for those of you who have this as a mantra) it is to keep your
health now than it is to repair your health a later date. It might take years for you to see the
affects of cheap food on your health but you WILL pay. You’ll pay in medical costs, drug
costs and missed wages. If you
don’t think this is true –think about the diet of low income
families. This is a segment that is
surviving (barely) on cheap food. They have much higher levels of obesity and
diabetes than middle or upper income levels.
Processed Food This food has limited nutrients and limited
fiber. The combination creates addict-like
behavior. Have you ever noticed - the
more you eat, the more you need to eat?
Some how you are just never full.
That’s because highly processed foods contain calories but
little nutrients. Calories do not keep
us full; they give us short term energy.
As you may have noticed this type of food “burns” right
eating food prepared by someone else I often hear from
people who live alone “I would never cook for myself, it’s too
much work.” My goodness, if you
would take the time to cook for someone else – why would you not do it
for yourself? Who could be more
important than you? If you do not take
good care of you – how can you be available for others – to nourish
and support them (in the case of children and/or a spouse) or how can you be
available to be focused and present at work?
Cooking for yourself not only gives you more control over WHAT you are
eating but it is also like a “Good housekeeping seal of approval”
saying “Yes! I am worth
just a few examples of different food types.
What does what you eat say about you?
Next you can think about HOW you eat.
What does IT say about you?
Here a few examples to ponder --- eating in your car, eating at your
desk, always eating in route or while multitasking. Lastly, how does the energy in the food you
eat affect you? For more thoughts to
ponder on this topic listen to a podcast of my radio on the same topic. See
below for details.
