The Ancient Healing Spice 

Cinnamon is a spice commonly used in cooking that comes from the bark of the cinnamon tree. When the bark is removed, it’s called a cinnamon stick. 

Cinnamon has also been used as medicine in traditional healing. You can grind up fresh cinnamon sticks to make tea, to cook into your food or sprinkle on oatmeal, soups, rice dishes or desserts.

 In Ayurvedic terms, cinnamon pacifies Vata and Kapha doshas. It has a sweet, pungent, and bitter rasa, taste and is excellent for digestion, strengthening the heart and warming the kidneys. 

However you apply cinnamon in stick or in powder form, cinnamon is sure to spice up your life!

Healthy Eating Affirmations

Healthy eating affirmations significantly assist in the recovery process and support the idea that affirmations actually reprogram your thought patterns, changing the way you think and feel. With perseverance your subconscious is able to re-examine those previously destructive core beliefs, and replace them with a set of new, positive and logical beliefs. This is the key ingredient for  healthy living which is essential for our well-being.

“Food is not the enemy. It is nurturing and healing”

In my own recovery from bulimia, when I first heard about affirmations as a powerful tool to aid in developing a positive mindset. I practiced them religiously on my most difficult days, and I continue to practice them to the day. If you are not familiar with affirmations, they are short statements that you can repeat to yourself, with the aim of changing your unconscious beliefs. This is an act of loving the self. Self-Care requires conscious effort daily while reinventing your relationship to yourself and food.

“I eat for energy and nourishment”

Forming a new relationship with food while choosing to recover you will find the strength to keep choosing recovery. And that is the hardest part about recovery continuing to choose it, even when it feels hopeless or uncomfortable.

 

“My body is my home, and I am taking good care of it” 

 

Suggested Affirmations: 

“My worth comes from inside of me, and I am inherently worthy”



“I am enough, just the way that I am”

“My body deserves my love, it is safe to love myself!”
