Eating Peace: I Hate To Say It….But Peaceful Food Choices Can Help

Because I began my study of eating with diet, nutrition, obsessive calorie counting…..
….all in an underlying fit of wanting to “control” myself and get thin….
….I often hesitate to discuss actual diets, types of foods, or food plans with people.
But food does affect brain chemistry, your body, your physical comfort, and your peace.
I notice how great I feel not eating lots of sugar, and eating lots of veggies and fruits.
I used to hate that advice, because my mind went to all-or-nothing and I felt so starved for love and the delight of eating. I wanted to eat things that tasted good, and I thought I wasn’t allowed to (which made me rebellious).
Today, however, even if you have all that rebellious internal dialogue going on, you might want to give yourself peace by eating foods that can calm you down, instead of rev you up.
There’s a place in eating peace for choosing foods that make it physically easier to relax.

Much love,

  1. Yes, Barbara, I am super happy to make a skype appointment–I love working with people on skype. The easiest way to schedule with me is to send your best times (let me know if you work days, for example, and your time zone) and I’ll see when I have free that matches well. I’m glad you know deep inside its possible to have peace with food–it’s true. No one is born without this capability, and you can find this for yourself again. Much love, Grace

  2. Hi Grace! Thank you so much for your videos. I really appreciate your honest and loving words and also that you share your personal experiences with the struggle with food. I am struggling a lot with this issue and sometimes I really have so much stress with it that I want to give up. Deep inside myself someone knows that it is possible to have a peaceful relationship to food. But on other days I am just sad and desperate. I would love to make an skype meeting with you. Maybe you can support my way. Love. Barbara
