So I’ve done it. I’ve written my first book. It was almost a year in the making. I’ve always wanted to write books. I never wanted a big publisher - fame and money wasn’t the goal. Writing for me has always been deeply personal, so I simply wanted to create short books about topics that I care about that resonate with smaller audiences. This was also my first attempt at being more vulnerable.
As many of you know, in the last three years, I’ve learned to farm, renovate houses, raise livestock for meat, build soil health, hunt and so much more. It stuck with me, it felt right. So in year three, I started to write a book on nutrition, because all that I’ve learned about food, farming, and agriculture were at the heart of what being healthy meant.
Nutrition – the food that you put in your body to feed it – is a deeply personal choice. There is no one right way of eating. You don’t have to follow diets. You don’t have to deprive yourself. Here’s the book in a nutshell:
If you eat real food, your body ultimately balances itself out. Food isn’t complicated, how your body processes it isn’t complicated. It’s when we follow wellness trends, misinformed diets, and supposed experts that we become disconnected from our food and our bodies.
What You’ll Find In "Love Food, Love Yourself"
How often do you find yourself asking:
- How should I be eating?
- What should I be eating?
- Should I be following a diet?
- Should I eat plant-based?
- Should I eat vegan or vegetarian?
- Are sugar, caffeine and alcohol really that bad for me?
- What about supplements?
The questions surrounding your health and nutrition can be overwhelming, especially if you’re over 40 years old and your body is entering an entirely new season. Your body’s nutritional needs aren’t as complicated as the media, gurus, and influencers have made it. In this book, you’ll learn about what you need to eat, how much you need to eat, and how you don’t have to starve or deprive yourself.
This book is written for multi-ethnic women over 40 who have started the journey to becoming happier and becoming healthier individuals. It’s written to help you develop a deeper understanding of nutrition. You’ll learn what you need to eat, how your body uses the food you eat, and show you that real food is the main source of all the nutrients your body needs to thrive.
It’s designed to help you stop depriving yourself of things you love, help you give up on dieting, and challenge you to question food fads that you’re sold in the media. From food allergies to supplements, to the effects of caffeine and alcohol, learn what’s really going on with your body, and realize the best expert in your health is you.
Your food journey and what you need is entirely up to you. I’m also not going to say it’s going to be easy, but if you put the time in, you’ll start to understand and retrain yourself to eat in a way that suits you. Hopefully, you’ll not only love food after reading it, but you’ll love yourself even more.
