I’ve been thinking about going to the movie Life of Pi and it got me thinking of one of the loves in my life – pie. MmmMmm talk about food lovin’ heaven with a home made crust fruit filled served hot with vanilla ice cream. Lovin’ spoonfuls that’s for sure.
You might be scratching your head wondering if I posted this by accident while writing secretly about this crusty love of my life. But no. You see I made peace with my food long ago allowing all foods to fit. It was a pivotal pact to a paradigm shift in my attitude about food and eating. When you allow yourself any kind of food you are no longer preoccupied with it, want it, crave it, yearn for it, get it and gorge on it, then feel guilty because of it.
I honestly can’t remember the last time I had pie, maybe a few months ago perhaps, maybe longer. I can have it right now if I wanted, but I just had breakfast. I know if my eating mantra was dictated by the rule Life withOUT Pie I probably would have snuck some yesterday and I’d be plotting to get more today and the next. See the difference in approaches.
Oh the crazy do’s and don’ts some diets dictate make us crazy. Make your diet all inclusive and see what shift your attitude will take. I’m sure one for the better.
