If you’ve ever experienced issues with weight in your life, today’s guest on the Namely Marly podcast has a message for you. Understand yourself as a whole being. That’s where the healing from emotional eating begins and a life of eating from a place of nutrition begins. Tune in on my discussion with Vegan Chef, author and wellness coach, Tess Challis as she talks about plant-based Food Love.
Sometimes trying to figure out what you should eat day-to-day while maintaining a healthy lifestyle can seem challenging. Some people say it’s all about the exercise. Others tell you to avoid carbs. Others encourage you to eat lots of fat. Tess Challis has put together a system to help us understand recipes and how to eat guilt-free and still create a healthy lifestyle.
Tess walks the walk too. She talks about how she was an obese vegan at one point in her life and what she did to make healthy changes to get her diet and her weight back on track. Here are some quotes from today’s interview that are so moving:
If you’re going to eat something, pay attention to it. — Tess Challis @tesschallis #namelymarly
We don’t really screw up, we just have experiences to learn from. — Tess Challis @tesschallis #namelymarly
If you do nothing else, just be present with your food. — Tess Challis @tesschallis #namelymarly
If you’re really being mindful and enjoying the pleasure of eating chocolate, the pleasure goes away after a little while. We enjoy the amount that is good for us. — Tess Challis @tesschallis #namelymarly
