#7 Good Food vs Bad Food

Have you ever struggled with those thoughts of “naughty foods” or foods you just “shouldn’t have” and then they feel like all you want or that you can’t escape them? If you have, you are definitely not alone. De-bunking the idea of Good Food vs Bad Food is what this episode is all about.

Christie and Kami look into the idea of “good food” versus “bad food” and instead suggest that food is morally neutral and many of our struggles around eating and food associations come from this suggestion that foods can be “bad”.

We look at the reasons why thinking of food this way can be detrimental to our health and wellness goals and instead look at Mindful Eating principals to help support a more holistic approach to nourishing ourselves from the inside-out.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • About why classing food as “bad” isn’t helpful
  • How food is actually morally neutral
  • Two of the founding practices of Mindful Eating and how to apply these
  • A look at Intuitive Eating and how to eat what makes you feel good.

PLUS, some practical tips about how to put each of these premises into practice and ground your food associations in knowledge and confidence.

Christie Lee & Kami Ramini

Kami Ramini is a mum of 2, certified health coach (Integrative Nutrition IIN HC), food and health writer and founder of This Mum's Kitchen. Kami takes a bio-individual approach to her work with every client and centres her coaching on the premise of teaching women about "filling your cup". What this means will be different for everyone, but it's the grounding affirmation that by loving into our own mind, body, spirit wellbeing, we are intrinsically also doing better by everyone we love and everyone who relies on us. At whatever stage of your journey, whether you are preparing for pregnancy, already pregnant, already a mum or a busy woman for countless other reasons, remember that if our cups are full, then there is enough for us and enough for everyone else in our lives to take a sip too. Self-care isn't selfish, it's anything but.

Kami currently sees clients one-on-one and in groups and runs bi-monthly detox and reset programs through her Mind Body Lifestyle Wellness Club membership packages.

Christie Lee is a prenatal and gut health dietitian and founder of Christie Lee Nutrition. Christie originally became a dietitian as she's always been passionate about empowering people with the impact of food and diet on our health. With the current state of chronic diseases growing within our society, Christie's approach to health has become fuelled by a deep passion to help people find the root cause of health concerns and conquer life roadblocks to achieve ultimate health and happiness.

Specialising in fertility, pregnancy and gut health, Christie believes the secret to a better health outlook for our society is in educating mums and mums to be to eat well, be well and therefore give our next generation the very best chance to thrive.

Christie currently sees clients one-on-one and delivers workshops and presentations regularly online and around Perth.
