Our thoughts on food and how we eat without restrictions

by purelytwins

We have a very special video today.

How to find a balanced diet. How to eat and not feel restricted. Should you have green juices in your diet?

Please share your thoughts below!

We hope hearing our thoughts on diet and how we approach food helps you build a better relationship with food.

We all have different backgrounds, different views on what is healthy, different access to food options and have different goals.

All these things and more make up your “diet”.

There are a lot of emotions involved too!


Other things you saw in the video were some behind the scenes of us making recipes.

So many good things coming your way.


We got our shipment from Thrive Market and a little day in the life with us.


Do you struggle with finding balance in your diet? 

Do you like to have green juices?

Interesting topic! And nice backyard!

I’d like to hear your thoughts regarding counting calories as a bad thing vs tracking macros as a good thing. I know that you’ve written about your past troubles with eating disorders, keeping track of your intake and comparing with one another, and how detrimental that was for your health and your relationship. How is that different from tracking your macros (and seemingly eating the same, with maybe some small deviations while Lori is breastfeeding)? It seems like it would be easy to fall back into the comparison trap when you are constantly calculating and monitoring numbers, but maybe there’s something I’m missing? I guess it seems like life would be even less restrictive for you if you’d just eat a plate of salmon, veggies, etc., in the quantities that you (individually) desired, rather than measuring everything out?

Great question. For us we don’t count macros everyday. We believe you have to be at a place where you are confident in yourself and be in a good relationship with food. Because if you aren’t then yes counting macros can lead down a dark road. Counting macros is not for everyone and we don’t feel you have to do it. It’s a personal thing and the person has to decide for themselves (again based upon their relationship with food and goals). Counting macros can help a person find their balance. Then once you know it you don’t have to count really anymore. We actually find tracking macros “freeing”. We don’t feel restrictive with it because it helps guide us and it helps make sure we are eating enough. Just like with everything in life everyone needs to find what works for them and makes them happy. Let us know if this answered your question or not.

Hi Michelle and Lori, I and my brother love green juices. My brother gained weight this year but when he started exercising and drinking green juices, he eventually lose all the weight he has gained. And he looks more confident and happy now.
