Today officially marks the launch of Eat Real Food TV, an idea that was born from really listening to you. Let’s go behind the scenes to find out how it all came about, shall we?
My eat real food community just absolutely rocks and on any given day, I learn as much from you as you learn from me. That’s the magic of relationships: together we are stronger.
Over the years you have given me valuable feedback. You like being educated and inspired to eat real food. You like the blog that lands in your inbox every Thursday. You like the recipes that keep your taste buds happy. You like the practical tips on social media that serve as useful reminders.
You also find it comforting that I’m a real person with my own obstacles and challenges. You’re relieved to know that I’m not perfect and I don’t expect you to be either. Whenever I talk with people about this idea of progress over perfection, it lights us both up like a light bulb.
So it got me thinking…
How can I speak to a wider audience about making steady progress towards our common goal of building better eating habits? Well, I could get in front of a TV camera and pretend we’re having coffee together in my kitchen while solving the world’s problems.
But wait a second. What if (in the spirit of being totally transparent about my obstacles and challenges) the act of putting myself out there is borderline frightening? I’m not an actress. I don’t know anything about starting a YouTube channel. What if it’s a total flop?
I’ve learned through trial and error that I can use my own fear as somewhat of a navigational guide. Whenever I feel like turning away is actually the time to lean in.
Starting a TV show scared me. So starting TV show is exactly what I did!
So thank you for pushing me outside my comfort zone and I sincerely hope this content serves you. You can expect a new episode once per month.
In today’s first episode, I’m asking for your honesty.
Can you eat and drink empty calorie treats in moderation?
Most of us want to believe we can, but only true Moderators pull off this strategy without it back firing.
Counterintuitively, Avoiders find it easier to manage cravings if they steer clear of tempting treats altogether.
Watch the episode to find out which one you are, and I’d be so honoured if you shared it with your friends.
As always, there is no right or wrong approach, only choosing the one that (actually) works for YOU.
I’m curious to hear if you’re an avoider or a moderator. Leave your answer in the comments below so we can all get to know each other a little better.
