3 Beautiful Books to Make Positive Food Memories
These books will inspire you to create delicious food memories, enjoy food for what it is and ditch those old tired dieting and deprivation rules.
Food is a common way that we connect with people and make memories. When we think of food, it can trigger memories from the past.
Creating positive food memories, can have significant psychological effects on us for years to come.
I'll just pop my dietitian-y hat on for a moment, seeing how food often gets communicated online is frustrating. Food is often so moralized in the media we view— good, bad, healthy, unhealthy— it makes it hard to enjoy it for what it is and the connection it can bring to communities and each other, with these kinds of messages orbiting in the background.
Creating positive food memories are vital to our well-being because it can make us feel happy and satisfied. They also help with our self-esteem and give us a sense of accomplishment when we have successfully done something that has challenged us before.
We've got three beautiful positive food books new to the Nourish & Treat shop to share this week. These books are hand selected to bring great tools to help you explore food experiences and have a great relationship with it.
