Have I mentioned already how much I love this community and this forum? I really appreciate having found it as I get so much great advice and input here, so thank you all already for reading this.
Now, I am curious about what you other Empaths out there eat. Do you take some special care in your diet? i.e. are you vegetarian for example or avoid certain foods for reasons of your empathy and how the food makes you feel?
For me, my relationship with food has been very difficult all my life and I see now this may be connected to me being an empath. As a child I ate virtually nothing. My parents dragged me to doctors for that reason, fearing I may be suffering of malnutrition because I avoided so much food and simply could not eat it. I don't know where that came from, suspect it could be linked to a past life but a not sure. It became better when I grew older but food is a 'problem' for me still.
I became a vegetarian when I was around 16 years old, and a vegan bin my late 20ies up to today. I remember a few instances in my childhood where I felt really really bad after eating meat and I believe now, I picked up on it's energy back then. For myself I can say since skipping meat and especially since skipping all dairy and other animal products, I feel so much more alive and energized! This type of food didn't do me much good and for me it's the right way to cut it out completely (this of course may be very different for you others out there, I'm not being preachy or anything)
Recently, I have been receiving lots of signs about wheat and refined sugar. I keep on bumping into the topic and it made me curious so I read up on it and learned how destructive both really are to the body. I try to skip wheat for now completely and try the same with sugar later on and see how I feel about it. For wheat I can say that most bread and products made of it feel simply 'empty' to me, so I try to eat more food that has good and clear energy, such as salads and fresh vegetables. Wholesome food so to say.
Long story short, I believe food can have a great impact on us and affect our wellbeing considerably, since we pick up on it's energy and may feel this much more intense than other people. Would love to hear how it is for you and what your relationship to food is like
