Why does “every food fit?”  What does this mean?

Every food fits because no one food is all good or all bad. Certainly some foods have greater nutritional value and provide more of our required nutrients, but we choose foods based on more than simply nutrition. Stating that every food fits is not discounting the critical role of nutrition to our overall health and well being. Rather, it is expanding the idea of healthy eating to include choosing foods that we truly enjoy, being creative, and finding a balance that suits our lifestyle. But it’s not permission to eat without awareness.

When labeling foods as good or bad, we carry those biases into our daily eating habits and lose out on some of the pleasure and enjoyment of food and the overall eating experience. Besides, many know all too well that we set ourselves up for failure when we deprive ourselves. It’s simply not worth it.

If we are incorporating a wide variety of foods, then there is room for everything – even if it’s only a bite!
