They told us to eat apples and bananas.
“Eat them everyday”. They sad. “They’ll keep the doctor away”. They said.
And then we met Cookie Monster. And everything changed.
The messages that we learn in childhood are incredibly powerful. They sink in and they sink in deep.
One message that I absorbed as a child (although I’m not sure from where) is that if it’s delicious and I want to eat it, then it’s probably not good for me and I shouldn’t be eating it.
But that is absolutely not true. I don’t have to chose between health and taste. I can have both. And I absolutely refuse to eat things that I don’t like just because they’re supposed to be “healthy”. You can’t make me.
What kind of messages around food did you absorb as a child?
