15 Ways to Stuff! A Stuffed Squash Roundup

If you’ve been following my little journey here for any length of time, you may have put two-and-two together and noticed that I have a thing for my yellow vegetables. Those being… my squash, sweet potatoes and gourds of all kinds. Though for the sake of this post, can we throw technicality aside and just call them all squash? …Yeah? Okay.  They’re all orange anyways.  You may have also…

Aiming for Fullness (What I Ate Wednesday)

Aiming for fullness. That is not something I’ve had on the agenda in the last number of years. Throughout my eating disorder I’ve been very against the feeling of being full. I’ve believed that feeling full automatically meant I would not be hungry for my next meal. And eating when I’m not hungry has been – and still is – a big challenge. I’ve had zero trust, even…

Week In Review: Gracious and Humble

I’m trying to figure out what I’m feeling right now. I think maybe gracious and humble feel right.  I’m humble because of the mistakes I’ve made and gracious because of how they have opened my eyes. I feel like I’ve been sent a little message to start making some changes for myself. I’ve been reminded of what is important in my life and reminded that those are…

Two Ingredient Pizza Crust Review

This last week I may have had one of my favorite foodie discovers to date.  I first heard of the “two ingredient pizza crust” years ago  – and even had a reminder from Kate a few weeks back when she took the plunge herself – but for some sad reason kept forgetting to give it a go.  UNTIL NOW.  I decided, last weekend, it was officially time.  I gathered a…

Taking Care of Your Body: What I Ate Wednesday

Disclaimer: As much as this following post is going to seem like a pity party, it actually isn’t.  I feel grounded and am just choosing to write out some factual realities that I am feeling.  I threw out my back. Even though I’ve lived nearly my entire life with some sort of back pain/discomfort – thanks, genetics – and even though I’ve been suffering from a disabling locked&nbsp…

Week In Review: Thinking Out Loud Edition

I have a lot of random, whimsical thoughts rolling around in my brain right now. Sooo I thought I’d mash my Week In Review up with some traditional Thinking Out Loud and share the random musings that accompanied my accomplishments from the week. Its fricken cold here. Like… burn your face, frozen snot kind of cold. My will to do anything at all has been at an all time low. Whyyyyyyyyyy’s…

The Desire to Purge: The Costs of Being an Introvert and Super-Feeler

Over my holiday, I had so many wonderful days. I think as you saw in my posts during Christmas week,  especially this one, I embraced allowing myself to feel that full hearted, wonderful feeling of focusing on what is important – spending time with family, relaxing at home and listening to the quiet. That day, in particular, was oh so wonderful.  And thennnnn…… the next day happened.  I had something very interesting happen to me at…

Week In Review: Back, Refreshed, and Technologically-New

Hello Sunday Evening (and hello Monday morning for my readers) It feels like just yesterday I posted last week’s Week In Review. Yet, at the same time it feels like a life time ago. That’s what happens in a week of transitioning from one place to another, I guess. I am back in Toronto now, nicely adjusted to my “bachelor” style of living again (baked beans on the couch – found at the back…

Words For a New Year. Ease, Acceptance, Confidence, Propelled

Oh you guys, Well the time has come. The cluster of days where your blog feeds are swarmed with post after post of New Years reflections, “best of” roundups, resolutions and goals for the new year to come. Last year I wrote a post that still very much sticks with me. It was the first time I let go of this sense of new years “goal” making, and rather began my journey into a more compassionate mindset regarding…

Diary of a Lovely (Holi)Day at Home: What I Ate Wednesday

Dec. 27, 2016 I just had a really lovely day. …apart from the brief episode where I was full of very non-attractive road rage and anger – in part due to leaving my phone in a store and having to return to (thankfully) find it. #typicalme. That was a half hour I am not proud of.  But everything surrounding felt really special.  I woke up early, as usual, and spent time with my…
