“There was a time in my life when I wasn’t taking care of my health. I had gained weight and I didn’t feel good about myself. I decided to make the choice to start treating my body better. Eating healthy became my priority.
By choosing minimally processed, plant-based foods, the weight came off. But it wasn’t just about the way I looked. My skin looked brighter, I had more energy, and I felt better about myself. It became easier and easier to stay on track because I was feeling better and better. This was over 10 years ago, and I haven’t looked back. I didn’t revert to my unhealthy ways because it simply feels better to eat healthy. When I’m tempted by unhealthy foods, I remind myself that I won’t feel good after. It won’t nourish my body or mind in any way. It’s just not worth it to me. Instead, I enjoy the rewards of choosing healthy foods. It tastes good and feels good. It’s a win-win.”
