trEAT yourself well!
It’s innate in all of us to chase pleasure, specifically anything that increases our dopamine. Our food choices are hardwired to this biological drive.
Our bodies want to binge because in the wild, when we found a tree bursting with fruit, it made sense to eat as much as we could, knowing it might be a while before we found another good meal. Refined sugars, processed carbs and saturated fat heavily trigger this response.
The biggest suppliers of fast food employ the greatest food chemists in the world. Their job is to create synthetic chemicals that can produce the greatest pleasure response for the consumer, while keeping costs as low as possible. The average customer is completely unaware that they are being programmed to become addicted to these “food” products. After a while, anything else becomes boring, unsatisfying and even unpalatable.
Fortunately, this is reversible. When we switch to a healthier diet, our dopamine receptors can be fixed and our taste buds become sensitive again. The food that was once boring, now seems to burst with flavor.
We can enjoy frozen berries that taste like ice cream that are filled with antioxidants (like vitamins C and E) that help protect us from cell damage caused by environmental pollutants. Hello beautiful skin 🏼
We can enjoy more leafy greens that supply us with iron, magnesium and potassium to help keep our bones and organs healthy.
We can also enjoy healthy sources of fat that help our brains function, regulate our hormones, and even help us lose body fat.
(Just more reasons to love avocados)
Trust me, once the self proclaimed pickiest eater in the world, it’s worth the transition.
Don’t give your health away to corporations who just want your money.
You deserve to THRIVE.
