7: Don’t Feel Guilty About Eating Food

Food is GOOD! Any wonder why food and good only differ by one alphabetical letter? I don’t fancy that a coincidence!

Through this journey, I have encountered a lot of people who felt guilt or shame around me when they were consuming food in my presence. I can understand feeling bad FOR me, in that you don’t want to tempt or torment me with something I cannot enjoy wih you. I appreciate the friends who have worked out ways to spend time with me sans food! Those have become new cherished memories for me! But I do not understand feeling guilt BECAUSE of me, in that my presence causes you to feel shame because you think I think food is bad. I assure you, I have never thought food was bad. Even when I decided to juice, I knew the problem wasn’t food, but rather my relationship  with it. 

God created our human bodies to NEED food to sustain life. It must then stand to reason that food has purpose, and that purpose is for our good. So, no guilt! No need for shame! Especially when we make wise decisions with the foods we choose to put in our bodies.

SO eat up, my friends! But choose wisely what you eat. Then, there is no room for guilt on your plate!

I am a 32 year old teacher in Georgia, originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!). I am also a singer and I recently taught myself how to play guitar. For fun, I enjoy reading and lots of Netflix binges, which is my American right! I have also been known to cycle, run half marathons, and do just about whatever I set my mind to. A charming shepherd-mix dog named Kingsley lives with me and keeps me laughing at his antics at every turn. I am learning how to love the life I live with each passing day. Sometimes it's easy...other times, I write about it.
