We don’t know who needs to hear this but it’s really okay if your meals are looking different right now. If you’re eating more shelf-stable foods, that’s totally fine. If you’re eating more frozen foods, that’s A-okay. If you’re eating more processed foods, to be expected. If you’re eating more comfort foods, of course you are! This pandemic is a time when we should be concerned for our safety and wellbeing, and not about our food choices.
We’ve been relying a lot more on pantry staple ingredients, which is why We are so so excited to share with you pantry friendly recipes and other intuitive eating ideas to help you get through this stressful pandemic climate.
If you are a dietitian (or influencer or anyone who preaches #health), and you talk about ways to eat low carb, or low calorie, or count macros, or restrict entire food groups for unnecessary reasons- this is a restrictive diet. Please do not say that these are not diets, or even worse, that they’re intuitive eating. This is not only inaccurate, but is super confusing to people looking for advice on the subject of intuitive eating.
#allfoodsfit and everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their bodies.
So, just a friendly reminder: in the nutrition world, we all practice different things. Which is okay, because people have different needs. We can 100% support different things and still support each other, but we need to be clear about our messages. Outside of the nutrition world, if you’re someone who’s confused about IE or want more factual info, we highly recommend checking out @alissarumseyrd, @karalydonrd and @jennifermcgurkrdn – some of our favorite experts on the topic who share understandable advice.
