What a Surprise!
According to the Holiday Calendar, May 11 is Eat-What-You-Want-Day, which correlates this year with Mother’s Day. Well, this day is definitely not a day to promote diets. Many families will go out for lunch or dinner and in one way or the other indulge in sweet pastry, ice cream or chocolate treats . Therefore, speaking about Eat-What-Youn-Want-Day: it is one single day in the year to go off your diet and eat something you really enjoy. Today, you can set aside your dietary “NO” list.
It does not mean to go off an ethical diet, let’s say, you don’t eat meat for spiritual reasons, well, this day will not take you to a steak house. If you have a medical issue, please don’t blame the day for getting too much sugar, wheat or salt. It is not intended to eat as much as you want. Rather, the goal is to eat something you otherwise would not have.
Sometimes we consider trying something new but then we don’t do it.
a) Like, learning about a different culture. Have you ever eaten Ethiopian food or Croatian Food? Maybe this is the day!
b) Have you read about RAW Foods, but then – never tried a complete day? Well, maybe this is your day! How about a healthy last minute gift to Mom: taking care of her foods for a whole day – and she might love the idea to get the raw-food-glow and even lose weight. Girls, we want to look marvelous, don’t we?
Check out our suggestion here: ONE DAY RAW
Enjoy, it is the Day to eat what YOU want, not a mind’s craving, not an emotional hole to fill. In this culture we have learned to eat out of boredom and loneliness. Mother’s Day and Eat-What-Want-Day can be a happy approach to conscious eating, taking care of ourselves and each others. How many hours do we focus on work, schedule, phone, games, FB, and feed quickly without attention and love. Well, this is your day to socialize, give love and to make a change!
