Are you tired of thinking of food in terms of calories, carbs, fats and protein? Maybe you’re always trying the new fad diets out there — the ones that make you count calories, and eliminate carbs — and then as soon as you go off the diet you gain all of the weight back.
After everything I have learned on my own journey of a health and through my education of nutrition I have found that balance is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and you are unique in your own needs.
Food energetics is the relationship between how a particular food is grown and cultivated, and how it is cooked and combined with other foods. The energy that you receive as a result either positive or negative is determined by your choices. By getting back to more traditional foods and trusting your own intuition you will nourish your body with what it needs and energetically be balanced.
