Intuitive Eating: Baking Ballerina 

Baking, I’ve discovered over the years that it brings me joy and the sweetest kind of healing. 

The notion that baking could provide a form of therapy has been around for years, and growing up as being a professional ballerina for the NYC Ballet at age 14 brought upon a very strict food regime. Baked goods was such a “no-no” and have been restricted all my life from these foods. Until recently, it has become even more important to dive into baking and eating foods I naturally enjoy. 

Baking demands exact measurements and ingredients, and doing things at a slower pace can help you feel calmer. Baking also provides a sense of aromatherapy,  the smell of baked goods.. these kinds of scents tend to boost positivity and relaxation. 

Following a recipe is wonderful, but one of the best parts of baking comes with the decorating portion of the project where creativity comes into play. The opportunity to express yourself (yes, even if it’s just with icing) can improve well-being as well as your ability to communicate. 

To baking, 

love, #krishna
