Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Food is my sustenance, not my friend.

Food is a nutritional tool for my health. Although food can be flavorful and delicious, I know how to enjoy it in moderation. I have the courage to politely reject food when I am not hungry and the strength to stop eating when I am nourished and satisfied.

My refrigerator is filled with fresh foods that are rich in vitamins and nutrients. My pantry stocked with healthy snacks that I choose to eat when I am hungry.

I remove unhealthy foods from my home to avoid temptation and help myself succeed.

Each week, I plan my meals in advance to ensure that I am eating a balanced diet so I can avoid last minute decisions that lead to unhealthy foods.

I eat a small snack or a sensible meal every 2 to 3 hours to stave off hunger that can cause overeating. The purpose of eating is to energize my body and brain so I can continue to live well. Eating the wrong things defeats that purpose.

When I go to parties, I stand far away from the buffet table and remove myself from tempting situations. I engage in conversation with my friends because I value relationships more than food.

I refrain from eating mindlessly simply to keep my mouth occupied. When I read a book or watch television, I chew gum or snack on healthy foods such as nuts and fruits.

Today, I choose to look at food as a means to fuel my body.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Why do I eat?
2. Are my foods packed with nutritional value?
3. What changes can I make in my kitchen to set myself up for success?
