How 'cultural habits' shape our food rewards and how to change it (Tip of the week Episode 40)

Updated: Feb 5, 2023

Happy Easter for those celebrating out there!

Can you believe that it's the 40th Tip of the Week episode already? And because it's Easter, I thought this time of the year could be the perfect example to talk to you about behaviors we start ingraining in our children, without understanding the real consequences.

Yes, the egg hunt is so much fun but what is the reward? And what do we end up rewarding ourselves with as adults? If you guessed chocolate you are right! Just like pavlov's dog! (you know what I mean, right?)

So how do you want your kids to grow up? Who do you want them to be?

Have you ever thought where that craving for something sweet after dinner comes from? Or that feeling you need a chocolate because you had a good day? Or even feeling like you need it because you had a bad day - remember that time as a child when you fell and hurt your knee, and so your parents gave you a cookie or an ice cream to make you stop crying? So now you feel sad, hurt, had a bad day, etc... - your brain goes: ice cream, cookies, etc!...

Watch this episode to find out:

- How these traditions are dictating your behaviors, without you noticing it

- How you can start creating change in you and generations to come

Find out more below!

See you next week!

Xoxo, Marcia
