A common email and private message topic we get is about having a bad relationship with food. Many ladies struggle with diet and overall food obsessions – what they should be eating, not eating, what diet is best, etc.
We used to be girls who were obsessed with food. Yes, we are still foodies as we love creating recipes and always will, but we no longer stress over what we eat, how much etc. We have a much more balanced mindset around food and it is so nice! Nice to have food freedom and we want you to have the same.
In today’s video we chat about 1 thing we did to help us stop obsessing over food.
One thing to help end food obsessions – drop food labels

Not letting your diet be your identity is a huge step forward to help get over food obsessions.
Do you know who you are if you took food away?
Let that question sink in a bit.
For years we were known as the raw vegan girls.
Deep down we hated it. We hated how people called us that and associated us with “food”.
We were just Lori and Michelle, why did it matter what we ate?
Dropping food labels around “diets” was one of the best things we did. When we left our old blog to start Purely Twins 3 years ago we didn’t want what food we ate to be a big thing. We share recipes that we enjoy and know others will too, especially if they cannot handle certain foods well like us.
It’s not that we say this diet or that one is better or one is bad. It’s more about finding what foods work for you.
But the key is to not let your diet take over who you are. Food is fuel. Nothing more.
Focus on you and eating foods that make you feel great. Drop the food labels. Be aware of how you talk about food to yourself and to others. Do you catch yourself using it as your identity?
