Food is an important aspect of your health and also your mood

A few things you should know:

  • Food is known as “Gu Qi” in Traditional Chinese Medicine (it’s my favorite type of “Qi” lol because I love food and it’s an awesome name... even though we don’t vibe with Gucci any more) 

  • Food affects your mood.

  • Your mood affects how your food is interpreted by your body.

Tips: 

  • Don’t eat when angry or sad 

  • Don’t eat and work/study

  • Do smell, touch, and slow down to taste your food

  • Do allow yourself time to give respect to the animal that is on your plate, the humans who have picked/packaged your food and whoever has prepared it
