Fall Musings: Turning a New Leaf

It is officially Fall, and I’ve been doing some serious reflecting on where I want to go with Positive Eats. I have talked with other entrepreneurs and met with some amazing individuals about branding and message, and I realized that I want/need to really refine my focus and target audience.

My two main passions are education and health. I am a K-12 teacher (with some experience in higher education) and have encountered students and teachers of all types. Succeeding in education, whether you are on the student side or the teaching side, starts with feeling good about oneself on the inside and outside. I know at the most basic level that this is related to diet and physical appearance.

So here goes…:

Positive Eats is a body-positive food and nutrition community designed to help educators help their students develop a healthy relationship with themselves and what they eat. We provide workshops, speaker events, professional trainings, and a supportive platform for individuals involved in education (teachers, administration, parents) to connect on issues of self-love and healthy food education.

Our vision is to promote and instill lifelong healthy eating habits and body-positive mentalities starting with healthy school children! A happy and healthy life begins with early nutrition education and self-empowerment. Cheers to Positive Eats!

Stay tuned for more updates to the website and mission.

The Best Diet for You is..

The one that makes you feel GOOD. Happy. Healthy.

Does it include kale? Maybe.

Does it include cheeseburgers? Maybe.

Does it include Cinnamon Toast Crunch? Maybe.

Do research. Experiment. Find the diet for you that leads to the most fulfilling life.

Remember, nutrition matters. Learn about it. Remember, we all have different bodies. Learn about yours. And then find your balance.

Now share with us in the comments section below, what does your best diet include?

 

 

 

 

 

The 3 H’s of Why we Eat

Stop. Think for a moment. Why are you eating what you’re eating?

There are 3 H’s for why we eat. They are:

Hunger
Happiness
Health

All three H’s are interconnected, and present in various amounts when we decide the foods to consume. Ideally, we should eat for a balance of all the three H’s.

When you eat something, are you hungry? Will it bring you happiness and are you currently in a happy state of mind? Are you eating it for overall health?

Be aware of the foods you consume, the nutrition they offer, and the emotional feelings that come with them! Are you balancing the three H’s?
