Sometimes Food and Always Food

by Tracy Jensen

I stumbled upon this great post from a mom blogger who works with kids’ nutrition programs in schools, which really resonates for me. She describes how she sorts foods into categories you should eat “sometimes” and foods you should eat “always.” Although this is not a new idea, it really works.

Calling foods “good” or “bad” can set you up for feeling like you’ve been bad when you eat the so-called bad foods. But if you occasionally eat a “sometimes” food, well, as long as you are eating your “always” food, you’ve succeeded!

There may not be anything you can have along the road of leading a healthy life more helpful than a positive attitude and strong self-esteem. So throw good and bad out of your vocabulary and set yourself some reasonable, balanced goals.
