We’re Leaving Guilt Behind—and So Should You

One of our editors recently shared a quote with me that read, “If you’re
habitually using ‘guilt-free’ to mean ‘good and nourishing,’ maybe take a break
from writing about food for a while to figure some stuff out.”
This is the message we’ve been working on of late: Guilt and food are
mutually exclusive and have no business hanging out together in the same cover
line, headline or sentence. But it wasn’t always that way. Do a quick internet
search of Clean Eating and you’ll find plenty of covers from our not-so-distant
past that tout that very claim. It was a sign of the times.
Before the words “clean eating” became the double-edged sword that could
either mean healthy meals made with pure ingredients or a restrictive deprivation
diet when taken to extremes, everyone wanted to know what “cleaned-up”
classics and desserts they could still enjoy but without the garbage ingredients of
yesteryear. And we were the pioneers of the cleanup crusade, taking every
imaginable meal our parents used to make with a pantry filled with
nonperishables and loads of refined sugars, flours, cheap vegetable oil and food
coloring and recreating them so that our readers could enjoy the tastes of home
without the guilt associated with the growing mountain of research tied to the
dangers of processed food. That was our intention behind “guilt-free” before it
was made into a dirty term representing the self-abuse attached to unattainable
perfection that’s often a product of social media. But alas, as our psyches, food
philosophies and societal norms change, the once-different meanings change too.
Soon enough, eating clean, the pure and positive intention of eating real,
nutrient-dense food, could mean either just that—or a dangerously restrictive
diet that becomes a gateway to eating disorders, like orthorexia.
Well, I’m here to tell you with certainty that our food philosophy is the
former. And if that means rethinking the language we use to describe the
intrinsically healthy nature of the food we create and share, then I am completely
on board.
