What’s In a Name?
Upon Googling “naked” the following definitions appear:
- without clothes.
- undisguised; blatant.
In our household we subscribe to both definitions when it comes to naked eating. See exhibits 1 and 2 below.
Exhibit 2: We shoot for eating foods that are in their most “naked” form possible and limit products disguised as food that rob us of our energy and health. (This doesn’t picture a typical practice in our household; mom just couldn’t resist a photo shoot to get a cover image!)
The Motivation behind Naked Eating
Gosh, it seems like there are a million reasons I started this blog. From the day I decided that three months just wasn’t long enough for maternity leave and quit my corporate job as a registered dietitian nutritionist and health coach, I have been dreaming up ways to continue to connect with people to share my passion for whole living. Having a little one has also opened my eyes to questions that new parents have when it comes to transitioning to eating solid food. As parents we have an incredible opportunity to influence our child’s eating habits which in turn impacts their growth, development, energy levels, attention span, irritability, mood, sleep, and overall health now and for years to come.
