Diet "Untouchables" {and why I am 100% against them}

It's been a while babes! Super excited for this blog post, because it's something I learned while traveling to Europe over the last few weeks. I figured I'd share what I learned about myself over the last few weeks- hoping that maybe it'll make a difference for some of you! This one is going to be super short and sweet:)

Greece: the land of Feta, mozzarella, and BREAD. No, I didn't fall off the gluten-free wagon {that's one that I am chained to for life!}, however I ate more dairy than I have in a long, long time. 

I noticed more bloating in my face, more white heads, uneven skin tone, and a little belly that had been on its' way to a super sexy six pack just days before then. 

London: everything tastes better in London. I can't even begin to describe how many sweets and heavy-dairy foods I was eating. WOWZA, I just let myself go! {face palm emoji}.

So when I got back yesterday from my amazing European vacation, I was beating myself up over it all. The drive from the airport was basically me looking at my moderately chubbier face in the window and wondering where I went wrong. Wondering why I wasn't strong enough to fight the cheese and chocolate demons.

AND THEN IT HIT ME: I did nothing wrong! Why did every piece of feta that I ate in Greece come with a side of guilt? And why did every crazy amazing chocolate truffle taste like heaven, but with an edge of regret? WHYYYYYYY THO?!?!?!

So here's what I always say, but ESPECIALLY what I am feeling today: guilt is the enemy of health. The moment you associate a feeling of regret with a certain food/foods {allergies totally not included!}, you become a slave to it. It becomes the thing you always want, the thing you can never truly enjoy.

There are no "untouchables" when it comes to diet. There are only "unwantables". When something that you can't have becomes something that you don't want... that's the secret to happiness and control in your own body. It's like the forever battle with the cookie jar. The "who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?!" line makes everyone feel guilty... Why don't we take the guilt out of it, and just set good boundaries for ourselves already:)

Dairy can no longer be an untouchable for me, because I'm allowed to have it whenever I want! But do I want it? That's the real question:) Let me leave you with a Bible verse that spells it all out perfectly: 

Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible, but not everything is edifying. {I Corinthians 10:23}

Sending you all my love & down-to-earth-truths,



^^^Thanks sis:)
