Do you ever get sick of reading books and blogs that make it sound like everything under the sun is going to kill you? I sure do.
It seems like no matter what we put in our bodies, there is always some component to the food that will harm us. Really, if we go off what we read, we will never eat anything.
The reading tends to go like this…
Don’t eat bread or pasta or any baked goods. Gluten will make you sick!
Don’t eat any sort of sugary treat. Sugar will kill you!
Stay away from fruit… fruit is natural sugar and it is just as bad!
Stop! Don’t eat meat! Meat is bad for your blood.
Non-organic vegetables? Are you out of your mind?!
It’s mentally exhausting reading all of these things. And I like to read. I like to learn about what I can do to better my health in the long run. But I am so tired of feeling like everything I do will result in my death.
That’s why I’m just going to squash the fear. I’m going to listen to my body.
I’m not going to be scared of the waffles.
