S1:E6 Food freedom for moms in bigger bodies
Updated: Feb 11, 2020
Here’s a round-up of the podcast and IG discussion about food freedom. Enjoy!
As a mom you want your children to love themselves and have healthy relationships...and that includes a healthy relationship with food. And you know where this starts, of course—with you at home 💕
S1:E6 with @no.food.guilt will delve into food freedom as the means to a healthy relationship with food. And moreover, she does nutrition coaching with moms in bigger bodies and a cool thing called “parent coaching” 🙌
You know when you’re tying to regulate the kids sweet intake, and then you sneak your own sweets in the kitchen 😅 I absolutely get it and I am so guilty of this, too....
But, WHY do we do this? 👉👉sweets are bad and we shouldn’t have them 🤦♀️😭 lies!!! Nope. Not true, but it’s what we’ve grown to believe.
Let’s shift your mindset away from excluding “bad foods”, and work on ✨moderation✨ and inclusion of the things you actually like. This will greatly improve your relationship with food and your children’s relationship with food 🙌
#foodfreedom, this idea that allllll foods can fit into your diet, is one of the topics covered at length in tomorrow’s Holy Healthy Mama podcast episode (S1:E6). Melissa @no.more.guilt will chat with me about food freedom for women in bigger bodies ♥️
You might have missed it, but this week we’re talking about eating ALL the foods because #allfoodsfit
For real (do people say this anymore?!) allow yourself to eat the forbidden foods; the excitement fades and you won’t want them as much
-you deserve to eat more than iceberg lettuce
-you deserve to eat whatever you want
-reset your relationship with food
-teach your kids to have a healthy relationship with food, too.
For my kids, it’s obviously after a whole bag of marshmallows. Jk jk jk!!
My oldest went years before he realized that he was “supposed” to be served a whole cupcake.
👉consider some or all of the suggestions in the pic above
👉minimize the struggle by setting specific expectations regarding sweets and treats
👉enjoy treats WITH your kids
👉you make the rules, mama. Do what works for your family 👍
Would you ever give your kid an ice cream cone leveled at the top??? Does that blow your mind??
