I came up with a new saying for use in my daily life. It is “Food First”.
And this is what I mean by it.
Do you ever have those moments when you are thinking of cooking something or thinking I should eat something but you are busy doing other things and it seems like a chore or not a priority? I know that feeling exactly. And I even love to cook and I still feel this way!
However, recently I have embraced how important it is to have quality food and nutritious food in my daily life. So to remind me of this, I just say in my head or out loud “Food First!”. This snaps me back into remembering that nothing else is as important! Food First.
And then after I say it, I go and take the time to make some food, or take my supplements, or do my yoga, or whatever I need to do that is on my healthy priority list. It all falls under my umbrella of ‘food first’…. food for my body, my mind, or my soul. Feeding is more than just food.
I used my little strategy yesterday. I made this amazing pot of soup in the morning as well as my 5 minute cookies that I make for my hubby. And while I stirred the soup and was really thinking about the blog posts that I wanted to be writing, I said “Food First”. 🙂 to snap me back to the importance of making healthy and nutritious food.
What about you? Do you struggle with putting things first in your day? I know that time is always an issue for many of us but I am talking more about how we ‘feel’ about our priorities and how we see them or if we see them as priorities or not.
I hope you too put Food First and give yourself the gift and pleasure of prioritizing food and goodness into your life. 🙂
