Hey lady, you’ve got important work to do in the world.
Whether that’s moving your career or business forward, being a kickass mama, or just lighting up the world with your presence. You’ve got purpose.
But as long as your obsessing about food and your body (or ignoring food and your body), you’re holding yourself back from truly making a difference and enjoying the process.
It’s kind of a waste of energy. And it’s time to make a change.
Ditching the all-or-none and eating for fuel, flavour, and fun, means saying goodbye to perfection. It means tossing your rigid food rules, and acknowledging that you deserve pleasure… with food, but more importantly, in your life! It is about eating to nourish your body, mind, and soul. We are talking about being healthy AND enjoying how you live, because that’s what wellness is… and you are worth it.
Worthy and Well is here to remind you that you deserve to feel free in your relationship with food, at home in your body, and in love with your life… RIGHT NOW! Do you? Too many people feel stuck, imprisoned, out of balance, and simply not good enough. Too many people wait on the next 10 pounds, the next 10 dollars, or the next 10 years before they start eating and living well.
THE TRUTH: The only time you have to eat and live well is NOW, so let’s get started!
Balanced eating doesn’t have to be overwhelming and confusing. It can be simple. Worthy and Well is committed to showing you the way. All you need to do is take the first step by signing up for weekly nutrition and mindfulness inspiration below. You won’t regret it!
My name is Casey Berglund. I am a Registered Dietitian, spokesperson for Dietitians of Canada, Certified Yoga teacher, and the founder of Worthy and Well, but really, I am a woman on a mission to empower other smart, soulful ladies to release the food fight and the body bashing, so they have more energy for creating a life that they love. And making a difference in the process.
I am blessed and grateful.
I feel free in my relationship with food. I eat what I want when I am hungry and it’s a beautiful combination of fuel, flavour and fun. I love how food nourishes me, brings pleasure to my life, and allows me to connect with people.
I feel confident in my body. I appreciate how my unique body moves, digests, and keeps me alive. I love the look of my body, including the dimples in my thighs and the scars under my chin. I move my body because it feels good, not because I did something wrong.
I love my life. I have energy for the things that matter to me, like self-care, nurturing relationships, and sharing my own divine gifts with the world.
But it wasn’t always this way…
For many years I had an unhealthy and unhappy relationship with food, my body, and my life (it was probably my best hidden secret). I would read every diet or food book I could get my hands on and eat in a very rigid way (that would often backfire). I would work toward the “perfect” body and strive to be the woman everyone felt I should be. I was a chronic over-achiever, a people pleaser, a self-saboteur and the queen of all-or-none. And I never felt good enough. Never satisfied, exactly as I was.
This was exhausting and kept me feeling stuck…
Things started to shift when I went on to study nutrition at the University of Alberta. Learning about the science of food and nutrition helped me better understand how my rigid food rules and all-or-none thinking could be doing more harm than good. I learned how to critically think about whether or not to believe bits of information presented in the media, on popular bookshelves, or in research itself.
Studying nutrition was hugely beneficial, but it was falling into yoga that truly transformed me, including my relationship with food and my body. Yoga helped me let go of my perfectionist mentality and made me more mindful. It connected me with my own unique inner wisdom, which now serves to guide the way I eat, the way I treat my body, and the way I live my life. Yoga taught me that I was born whole, unbroken, joyful, and full of love. And it continues to help me shift from figuring out what’s wrong with me to uncovering what is right about me.
Over the past few years, I have helped hundreds of individuals transform their lives through finding freedom in their relationship with food and their bodies. I’ve spent hours upon hours studying nutrition, mindfulness, intuitive eating, behaviour change, positive psychology, yoga, business, communications, and leadership; and the best part is that the more I learn, the more I find to learn. When I am not studying, I am practicing my own learnings and teachings.
