For low-income communities, healthy eating is seen as a luxury. It is perceived as expensive, flavorless, and difficult.
This is the reason that they are plagued with the largest amounts of chronic disease such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
Low-income communities are impacted most profoundly by the advertising of processed foods, their convenience and seemingly low price tag.
What is not paid for in dollars at the grocery store cash register is shelled out later at the doctor’s office, by our insurance companies, and often personal wallets.
This leaches at their quality of life, affecting their relationship with their own bodies, their environment, and the people most important to them.
The "f" word that is said too often.
I hear it in yoga class, during mealtimes, and in conversation. What's more dangerous is what I am not hearing. The negative self-talk that we all struggle with. It's not benign.
It leads to a poor relationship with your body, food, and other people.
Even worse, it creates complete disconnect to what true health actually feels like.
