Secrets of Success

Stop Humanizing My Food!




Food does not have vocal cords. It cannot 'call' me from the cupboard/freezer/fridge. Why should I 'love' certain foods - they don't love me back. Once I put food in its proper context, I can enjoy it, but not give it unnecessary power over me.

More Information:

Saying, "Oh, I LOVE pizza, I LOVE cheese" is a habit leftover from my dramatic teen years. I must have said it millions of times in my life. I heard myself say it again a couple of weeks ago and it was like I heard it for the first time. I LOVE my husband. I don't LOVE food in that way.
