Sometimes you’re faced with a tricky situation, requiring you to make tricky choices. You know the outcome you want but you’re not quite sure how to get there. But then you just sort of blindly dive into it and do what you need to do, and it feels so right.
Using your intuition is important both in life and in eating.
When they say, “Trust your gut,” it’s because everything is connected when it comes to the body. Listen to what feels right both in your actions and in your food choices.
Your body tells you what it wants.
Craving protein? Have some protein!
Feeling full? Stop eating!
Thirsty? Drink some water!
Tired? Get more sleep!
We need to start listening to our bodies more, fueling it the way we need to fuel it at that particular moment, whether calorically, spiritually, or otherwise. This is living honestly, being authentic.

Keep in mind that your body works very hard to protect you from toxins in the food you eat, the air you breathe, the products you put on your skin, etc…and yet we allow ourselves to be in toxic situations that adversely affect our health. And when that happens, all the kale in the world can’t save us.
Eat right and do right. In the end, they’re one and the same.
