You don’t have to look far to find a diet that’s associated with status, popularity and a shiny name tag. We LOVE labels. Single or taken? Gay or straight? Organic or GMO? Faith-based or Atheist? Ironman or Netflick’s marathoner? Vegan or Paleo? But doesn’t life go beyond the binary THIS or THAT construct of labeling?
Labels can be great, especially when it comes to food! They let us know what we’re investing in and what we’re putting into our bodies. But could labeling your dietary strategy and/or nutrition preference be…damaging? In my opinion the answer is definitely, yes.
Your body is a unique piece of human. You have individual needs, preferences, like, dislikes, strengths and sensitivities. With that in mind, why on earth would you conform - shrink yourself - to fit into a pre-packaged nutrition label?
I’m going to let you in on a little secret…
You don’t owe the world a label. You can be whatever you want to be, eat whatever you want to eat, do whatever you want to do. Regardless of what anyone else is doing or what hot topic is being shamelessly shared on social media (hello Keto clan).
Be a vegan, who eats meat sometimes.
Be a gluten-free gal, who occasionally eats grains.
Be a dairy free dude, who really likes to eat ice cream.
Be a human who eats and feeds his/her body according to your unique needs, preferences, likes, dislikes, strengths and sensitivities.
Be whatever the hell you want, who eats whatever the hell you want.
It’s your body. It’s your plate. It’s your (and only your) business.
