My Journey with Emotional Eating, Part 1: Food as a Symbol of Love

Another article on food today….emotional eating.

And this is applicable to creating a “proactive plan” because if we don’t understand our current learned coping mechanisms of dealing with life and life stressors….its pretty difficult to not simply shift from one avoidance strategy to another.

So today….

From what I consider to be one of the best “personal development” sites out there – an article on learning to identify and resolve emotional eating as an escape strategy.

Raw Pecan Tartlets | The Sweet Life

Along the way and in the past 5 years since taking control of my health – physical, mental and emotional – I discovered that what the FDA was telling me was good for me – really wasn’t.

One very empowering solution I discovered was in learning that sugar in all its processed forms was causing many of my chronic health issues as well as my struggle with “mood” and even anger that seemed to come from no where.

So today I thought I’d share a link to a recipe for a holiday (or any day!) treat that is made from real food, nothing processed nothing fake; just real food that comes from the earth.

This recipe is completely sugar free! The sweet comes from dates…

I’ve not tried it yet but it looked too good to not share with you so enjoy!
