The Power of Presence: Transforming Your Relationship with Food

Joel GerdiseBook, Emotional, Performance

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to fall into the trap of mindless eating. We rush through meals, grabbing whatever is convenient and readily available, without giving much thought to how itmakes us feel physically and emotionally. But what if we shifted our approach to eating? What if we embraced the idea of being present and intentional with our food choices?

Instead of following strict diet protocols like vegan, keto, or paleo, what if we focused on simply being present with our food? This means slowing down, paying attention to how different foods make us feel both in the moment and hours afterward. It means being mindful of our hunger cues and listening to our bodies instead of following rigid rules.  You are the expert of you!  Keep in mind that your sense of feeling good after eating may be skewed by the ingestion of too many seed oils, found in most processed foods and used in many restaurants.  In other words, you may not know what it feels like to feel fantastic.  Let’s go on a journey of eating foods in their least processed form and find out what it feels like living closer to 100% with our diet.

Cooking may seem like a daunting task for many of us, but it’s an essential part of nourishing our bodies and souls.  If you find yourself too busy to prepare meals regularly, take a moment and ask yourself, “why?”.  Tasks, projects and “to do’s” will always be there. Prioritizing how you fuel will give you the physical and intellectual energy to win the day. Ignoring the quality of your calories ensures disease and dysfunction in the future. Invest in your future by by making peace with cooking and choosing whole, unprocessed foods, we can take control of our health and well-being. Whether it’s exploring new recipes or hiring someone to cook for us, investing in the preparation of nutritious meals is key to optimizing our health.

Hydration is another crucial aspect of our health that often gets overlooked. Many of us are chronically dehydrated, relying on processed beverages that lack essential minerals. Frankly, the majority of our water sources lack essential minerals.  Add a pinch of Celtic salt or Himalayan salt to your water to add the essential minerals that encourage better absorption of the water by your cells. By prioritizing stillness and mindfulness, we can become more attuned to our body’s hydration needs and make conscious choices to support optimal hydration. 

Ultimately, our relationship with food goes beyond mere sustenance. It’s about nourishing our bodies, minds, and spirits. By slowing down, being present, and intentionally choosing the foods that fuel us, we can transform our eating habits and enhance our overall well-being. So let’s embrace the power of mindfulness and make every meal a moment of connection, nourishment, and joy.

A Couple Tips To Become More Present in Your Relationship With Food

  1. Keep a Food Journal: Start by tracking everything you eat and drink for at least one week. Note the portion sizes, time of day, and any associated emotions or circumstances. Review your journal to identify patterns, such as frequent snacking or emotional eating, and areas where you can make healthier choices. Use this information to set specific goals for improving your diet, such as reducing sugary snacks or increasing vegetable intake.
  2. Plan and Prepare Meals: Take time each week to plan your meals and snacks in advance. Choose recipes that incorporate a variety of nutritious ingredients, including lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Create a shopping list based on your meal plan and stock up on healthy staples. Consider batch cooking or preparing ingredients ahead of time to streamline meal preparation during busy weekdays. By having healthy options readily available, you’ll be less likely to rely on convenience foods or takeout meals.
