Food is not your enemy…

This is a poem by Pamela Malo

Pamela is a nutritionist, coach and writer with a really unique perspective on food and life.

Enjoy!

What I want most to tell you
What I want most for you to know
is that this life we are given
it comes with no guidebook
and that learning to love our life
and our body
and our self
it’s all the same journey
What I want most to tell you
What I want most for you to know
is that there is a way to be with food
that goes beyond rules and research,
a way of eating that brings joy and pleasure
not guilt or fear or frustration
And that it is possible
for eating to feel like a beautiful breeze
What I want most to tell you
What I want most for you to know
is that whatever your challenges are
with food, or eating, or your body
They do not need to be fixed
but heard
What I most want to tell you
What I want most for you to know,
is that to step into your power
You must first step off the scale
To love your body
you must learn to embody it
To love your life
You must love the food you nourish it with
What I want most to tell you
What I want most for you to know
is that while food is important for health
so is the color and texture and tone
of the words which paint your inner world
What I want most to tell you
What I want most for you to know
is that if you are tired and frustrated
and have tried everything else
Perhaps it is time to
give Love a chance
