Now… the moment you’ve all been waiting for… Wisdom from our wonderful Nichole!
Nutrition and dieting is a topic that gets discussed a lot with my clients. During those discussions many of my clients walk away frustrated. Why? Because they don’t get diets or plans from me. Instead I talk to them about a way of life, I talk to them about making healthier choices, we talk about getting to know our bodies better, and we talk about it all in way that food fits into life instead of our lives revolving around food.
This mind set is so hard for many people. We our a society that no longer is in tune with our bodies. We don’t know how to listen to our bodies tell us what food it needs, what food helps our bodies thrive. Instead we are a society that jumps from diet to diet, from food plan to food plan.
Today’s fit tips or some tips to help you get more in tune with yourself. We are talking intuitive eating.
Chicken and Black Bean Taco Salad. The salad that keeps giving. 🙂
Happy Fit Friday!
