I understand grief. I live it every day. I lost my beloved daughter 19 years of age, 7 years ago.
Traumatic times can be difficult. It's not easy to put one foot in front of the other, let alone make a nutritious meal. It can be difficult to select, shop and prepare food. It can be difficult to find the energy to eat, let alone prepare something healthy.

Five Little Steps.
One step, one moment at a time.
To help you make healing a priority.
Just wanting to make a start
To want to heal, to want to care, to want to get up, dress up, show up and not give up.
One of the characteristics of grief is the loss of interest in shopping, preparing, cooking, and eating nutritious food.
I will listen. I understand. I can help.
Grief can also cause the opposite, overeating.
Learning to eat the proper foods and making healthy eating a priority, is a step towards dealing with grief.
In any stage of grief, energy is key to finding strength.
Choosing the right foods creates energy and the desire to care.
Once you feel better, specific foods eaten at the right time, in the right combination, will help you sustain energy.
When you feel less drained and have more energy, you will want to continue making eating healthy a priority.
I encourage people in all stages of grief to find some kind of activity or physical exercise.
You should consult with your physician before starting any exercise or diet program.
