Why “every food fits?”
Every food fits because no one food is all good or all bad. Some foods have greater nutritional value, but we choose what to eat based on taste, texture, nostalgia, and many other factors. Saying that every food fits expands 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. 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!
