Ever have the feeling that you need more of a certain kind of food? Say you might be drawn to apples lately. Or even crave a salad. That's your intuition talking to you.
Your body communicates its needs for nourishment and nutrients
to you through your intuition.
On a conscious level, you might not think, "Today, my brain needs some Essential Fatty Acids. My skin and hair want that too, so I'll make sure to add in some extra DHA in the EFA mix." But you may say, "Salmon (or flax if you're a veg/vegan) sounds great. I'll have that for dinner."
Take note of what recurring food thoughts you've been having. Celery on your mind? It's a cleansing vegetable and sucks the toxins right out of you. Avocado? A healthy heart fat, good for the cells of your body.
Look through your fridge and pantry. Intuitively, do any of those foods jump out at you? You might notice that they seem to vibrate/be moving, have a glow to them, or the color pops out more. That is your intuition speaking to you too - visually, through how the external world appears to you.
When you eat intuitively, you are always giving your body what it needs most at the moment. No trend of the day diet can ever tell you what is specifically right for you right now. Educate yourself on the options available and then go back to choosing intuitively the food that's right for you, right now.
What about cravings? Extra salty chips? Soda? I'll go over that in a post coming soon that addresses how to deal with cravings from a nutritional, emotional, and intuitive level. Stay tuned...
