Almost all of my life, I’ve treated food (and then later, alcohol) as reward. “I’ve lost weight; I deserve this treat. I’m stressed out; I need this treat. I accomplished this; I’ve earned this drink.” Etc. This Whole30 round, I’ve been working hard to find treats and rewards that will actually boost my happiness and aid in my self-care. The last few weekends, my daughter and I have picked out these sweet yellow carnations at Costco, and they brighten my mood every day. Take care of yourselves, friends!
