Holiday Lessons

Holiday Lesson

Last Thursday’s Thanksgiving marked another year that I am sugar free and sober!

The word “free” best describes how I feel about myself.

I see the contrast from past holiday’s where I was bound to the feelings of…

guilt, unhappiness, bloated, disappointment, obsessive and regretful for overeating.

I would then go to the gym and work out for 2 hours and restrict my foods in a spiral of shame.

But as I started my plant based journey and as a dietitian, learning more about whole foods, addiction, and my unique needs, I felt a real difference in my life.

I started loving myself more because of the food decisions I was making.

I was in alignment with who I wanted to be.

My body told me that I could still enjoy amazing meals made with whole plant ingredients.

It told me it was okay to enjoy food.

It told me when I was really hungry and when I was eating for stress or comfort or other reasons.

It told me all the things I needed to know so eating was no longer a stressful part of my day.

You can learn how to eat in a way that feels good to you.

The holidays don’t have to be a stressful time where you’re starting new diets and intense workout plans and skipping parties to avoid food.

It can be easy if you want to learn and find out who you want to be.

Never give up!

I am a phone call away if you want to schedule a time to chat about what’s holding you back from being who you want to be.

Now is the best time to start your plant based journey.

with love,
Sheri ❤️

    Hello Sheri,
    My name is Dawn Booth. I’ve been eating whole food plant based for 10 years. Feeling great and all is well. I’m a member of Overeaters Anonymous. In that 12 Step program, we encourage persons to reach out to a nutritionist to set up a food plan. I’m not aware of any plant based nutritionists to refer people to. I would like to find out if that is something that you do and how much you might charge someone who was looking for that. Personally I use, Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen as a guide for what I eat in a day. Anyway, I’m exploring options for others I sponsor and others in the program. Do you have an opinion about using Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen as a guide for what to consume in a day?
    Thank you kindly,
    Dawn B.
