How To Have A Healthy, Intuitive Relationship With Food
Dr. Deanna Minich

EATING PROVIDES the opportu
nity for an intimate relationship
with the earth through our bodies.
Because we ingest thousands of
pounds of food and drink over our life
spans, it would be unreasonable to think
that our relationship to food and eating
doesn’t impact our health.
Actually, every choice we make becomes
who we are. For the most part, society
cultivates eating with our heads —
we analyze and intellectualize every food
choice into its respective calories, macronutrients,
vitamins, and minerals. But what
if we let our bodies do the talking? What
would our bodies say? What would they
need from a nutritional perspective?
Many food and eating issues are intertwined
with our ability to feel safe, trust,
feel protected, and be grounded and
present. Ancient traditions call these aspects
of our nature the “root” part of us.
Without a strong foundation in basic principles
for survival like trust, safety, and
security, you might imagine that we may
not trust our own bodies’ instincts about
eating.
In fact, I have observed that most
people are completely out of touch with
their bodies. They aren’t in the present
moment, and in order to feel grounded,
some people choose to eat in a way that
makes them feel detached from their bodies,
or fragmented. They get sleepy and
fatigued.
Here are a few tips to promote a healthy
ROOT:
1. Honor your body’s instinct.
Because most people are out of touch
with their bodies, it may be challenging to
know when and what to eat. Typically, we
ignore the body’s cues rather than listening
to our inner wisdom.
What language does your body use
to tell you what to eat and when? Try listening
to your body and observe its natural
rhythm rather than your intellectually
imposed rhythm. See if there are certain
foods that your body instinctively needs
by simply asking yourself what you need.
Practice trusting the response. Note
whether some foods make you feel
“grounded” or “ungrounded.” How’s your
energy level after consuming certain
foods? Develop a “safe place” within
where you trust the messages you receive

about your eating needs. Meditate and
cultivate a relationship with that part
within, including developing a practice of
listening to its messages.
2. Engage in healthy social eating.
When we’re born, we root ourselves
through a community. We establish ourselves
within the context of how we’re
supported by others around us. When we
don’t feel safe or supported by our community,
we may not be comfortable eating
in their company, or even being a part of
their traditions.
As a result, social eating has the potential
to be stressful. It may make us feel
insecure, ungrounded, and unsupported
in our eating.
Some strategies to overcome the fear
involved may include creating your own
new traditions or bringing a dish to add to
the mix. Give some thought to the belief
patterns about foods and eating that you
inherited from your family, and decide
whether these are still valid for you.
If they aren’t, create new belief patterns
and enforce them with your new way
of eating. You may want to create a community
of individuals with like-minded
thoughts about eating to get together on
a regular basis to share a meal.
3. Eat foods for grounding and stability.
There are three types of food that may
help with the root aspect of our nature,
because they create a sense of structure
and grounding. First, protein-containing
foods help our blood sugar to be stable,
giving us a feeling of steady energy.
Animal proteins are particularly
grounding since their origin is from some
of the most grounded creatures — animals
who are “sure-footed” with up to
four feet on the Earth and in contact with
their instinctual selves. Vegetable protein
works perfectly for those who are vegetarian.
Second, mineral-dense foods impart
the elements needed for structure and
stability in the body. For example, calcium
is needed for a strong skeleton. Iron
is needed to ensure that the body can be
properly oxygenated and able to function.
Lastly, root vegetables such as beets,
rutabagas, and parsnips, grow deep
within the earth, and contain insoluble
fiber to help us with elimination and letting
go of what we no longer need.
