Do You Believe That The Relationship You Have With Food Impacts Your Relationship With Money?
If we ate all the lies people feed us, we would starve, so we eat cucumbers instead! Righhht?
I have to be honest with you. I don’t like half the stuff I eat. I am a #MiamiGirl. I grew up on collard greens and cornbread. And, if I’m honest, I have had a few bowls of chiterlings (chitlins), whichever pronunciation you prefer. I did away with chitlins in my diet in college. However, I still eat collard greens, just minus the fatback.
Anyways, in my new diet I view food as fuel. So, while I do not like most of the food that I eat, the basis of my selection is, “How will this fuel my body?”
-Great for muscle pain
-Contain lots of water
-Promote kidney health
-Improve hydration, digestion and blood pressure.
But, Shani what does any of this have to do with making more money, or managing the money I already have? Well, we are what we eat, right? And, with COVID-19 looming about, it is really easy to just move your bed next to the refrigerator and just have at it.
Here’s the thing: Once I eat a bunch of carbs, sugar, bread, rice, Talenti ice cream, a few pink starburst, and more Talenti ice cream, I crash and my creativity goes down the drain. Next thing I know I’m on Amazon.
Seriously! I too can get sucked into boredom and overeating. And, before you know it, one poor eating decision begets a poor spending decision. Often, how we do anything becomes how we do everything!
So, this week all I want you to do is buy a bowl to put some fruit of your choice in and sit it on your kitchen table or next to your refrigerator. Send me a picture for added accountability.
