D I N N E R // + food changes burrata + roasted tomatoes + crispy basil ______________________________________ we tend to publicly showcase our joys and successes but not our fears or sadness. But life is full of both of them. Last month I pleasantly found myself mistakenly pregnant. Overwhelmed by the positive sign on the pregnancy test and then overjoyed about the thought of my family growing. Unfortunately, my pregnancy ended a few days ago to my dismay, due to a chromosomal mismatch that my body naturally rejected, thankfully, as we all dream of healthy beautiful babies. I believe in fate, but of-course hormones, emotions, and responsibilities all over the place, I kept thinking about how life takes you by surprise. And of course for me, food and health came into thought. Although i know what happened was nothing to do with what I did or ate, a different lightbulb went off that day. I started feeling differently towards food and had really bizarre cravings, which I listened to. Hence, I have begun a new food journey. I don’t know how long it will last or the effect it will have on my mind and body, but nevertheless I have decided to stop being so strict and enjoy food in all of its glory. When we are in tune with ourselves, we are able to listen to what our bodies are telling us and sometimes that means changes. I’m going to enjoy everything I eat, without guilt, without gluttony, without fear or limitations on the type of food i want to eat. No this doesn’t mean I’m going to start eating sugar or junk, but yes I’m going to start enjoying the things I’ve stopped. The first one is CHEESE. Always listen to your body. It tells you more than you think.
