How to start a food philosophy change?
It doesn't require extreme measures.
Just by landing here, you have already started a journey.
Step One : No past guilt.
Nutrition has not been taught for the past few generations. We are in the dark, learning anew.
It is easy to have developed addiction to processed foods, animal products, sugars, fats, salts.
Companies literally engineer their food-like products (and market) towards addiction.
Step Two : Listen to your body.
"All or nothing" may not be the best policy when it comes to diet.
Restrictions seem to make people obsessive and sometimes sick.
Personally, if I crave something, I take that as a signal I need it nutritionally.
Occasionally that means meat, fish or a fatty, fried plate.
But generally it's all about fresh, seasonal, nutritious plants and plant-based products.
Everyone is different and should do what feels right and healthy for them.
