Healthy eating Ideas

As I'm a psychologist by training, I'm interested in healthy eating ideas that have less to do with the nutritional value of food, and more to do with the psychology of eating healthily vs the psychology of disordered eating.  But I will say at the outset that you don't find people who live to be over 100 years old that have a neurotic, obsessive or anxious relationship with food and that should tell us something important.  In our Western eating culture we seem to have become convinced that creating a healthy lifestyle also means becoming hyper-vigilant about every morsel that passes our lips.  The stress we create around eating is enormous and stress shuts down our digestion and retards nutrient absorption: it's no wonder that gastric disorders are on the rise.
