Health Canada recently released their long awaited update to the Food Guide and I could not be more excited. Not only have they done away with confusing portions and servings (that no one can remember anyway), they’ve incorporated some of the very important factors around nutrition health habits that I think are essential to a healthy relationship with food. Here are the highlights including why I think they’re so powerful.
As a culture we’ve moved so far away from listening to our bodies. We are over-scheduled and generally not present enough to even notice our own cues (myself included at times!).
