Here’s what I think about food rules and smoothies:⠀
.⠀
💁🏻‍♀️ Because I don’t give a flying F whether my fruit smoothie is approved by someone with no qualifications to be dishing out nutrition advice 😤 do you?⠀
.⠀
❌ Stop for a second and think, where did all these food rules come from? And how do they stand in the way of you enjoying the foods you actually want to have, when you want to have them?⠀
.⠀
☝🏼 First and foremost, you are the expert of your body and your lifestyle. If something like a smoothie fits your budget, is quick enough to get you out the door, fills you up and tastes good in the process, what’s wrong with that? If we listen to diet culture, apparently a lot. That is, unless it’s handed down an MLM, amped up with expensive supplements or hard to find ingredients, watered down or “balanced” out or otherwise made to fit a narrow definition of what’s acceptable for breakfast.⠀
.⠀
🙅🏻‍♀️ Nope, can’t do it. I eat for a lot of reasons and nourishing my body is just one of them. Do I have a smoothie every day? No. Do I eat non-breakfast foods or leftovers or dessert for breakfast? You bet. Those foods still provide me with carbs, protein, and fat along with the fuel I need to feel good and start my day. But I don’t waste time or energy getting caught up in making my breakfast “perfect” anymore. There’s simply no such thing.⠀
.⠀
👍🏼 So go on and you do you, if you want a smoothie have a smoothie…if you want pie stay away from mine but afterwards we can talk about how great it was 😬 but food freedom means being able to make a food choice and move on, free from the pressure and judgement that diet culture placed on it.⠀
