The Life Giving List – Healthy Ways to Spend My Time

I mentioned in a post last week how right now –  as I go through a pretty intense change of what my habitual way of living has been, and with that a whole slew of changes of thoughts and feelings – I am needing some extra “distraction.”  I am needing activities that I can do to literally take my mind off any coming anxiety and make the hours pass in a healthy way. That being said, using…

What I Ate Wednesday: Summer Blessings

Friends, Looking over my last couple of posts, I really do not want it to seem as if I am putting out a “woe is me” energy, and most definitely hope I am not coming across as looking for pity or attention. I really have been trying to state what is going in a factual, honest way.  A way that says, “hey life is hard right now and I’m struggling with some things…

Week Review: Letting Go of “Ideal”

Hi friends, Shifting of thoughts… writers block…call it what you will. I wasn’t sure if I’d be getting in a post today. There’s a lot going on in this here life and brain of mine that sometimes it actually feels like TOO much to even try and organize into words, ya know? You don’t even know where you would start. Nevertheless, I’ve found myself on a 3 hour car trip and…

What I Ate Wednesday: Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming…

I’m sorry guys. I feel like I’m swimming through the trenches this week, and dragging you in with me.  Life is just taking everything I have right now. I don’t know where my emotions are at. My stomach is in a perma knot of fear and anxiety. I have zero focus or clarity about anything. I mean – I’ve tried working on three different blog posts now and can&#8217…

Week In Review: Shifting Thoughts and Figuring Out the Feels

Oh hi, friends.  It feels like its been a while. Not noticeable from your end, per-say, but more so just because I’ve been far less active with my own blog reading and commenting and writing, so I’m feeling more distanced. But hey, that was the deal.  I don’t really know how my week was. And that probably sums up a lot of my current thinking… “I don&#8217…

What I Ate Wednesday: Sunshiny Days

Hello friends.  Monday was just a really lovely day.  Joining in the What I Ate Wednesday party as usual.  Thank you Arman and Laura for holding down the fort each week.    Breakfast: On the weekend I baked up a Fig and Ginger Oat Crumble Bar based off Teffy’s brilliant recipe.  I saw fig and ginger and – well duh – I was sold. The base is made of…

Maple Miso Tofu with Butternut Squash and Broccoli

Are you skeptical of tofu? Afraid of experiencing a bland taste and less than meaty texture? Make this easy Maple Miso Tofu dinner and I swear even the most dedicated meat lovers will become converts.  Where are you at with Tofu? For many, I think the mention of tofu still elicits a lot of confusion, fear and skepticism. I have no doubt a lot of avid meat eaters still scoff at the whole notion. Though even to…

Friday Favorites #2: Highs that are Lows and Lows that are Highs

Anyone know what I mean when I say a “low” that is also a “high?” I feel like during a time of recovery – which as I’ve said before is really a time of discovery – a lot of our “highs” and things that we know make us happy deep down may, in the moment, also feel like a low. I touched on it in this post where I mentioned that…

What I Ate Wednesday: What is “Time” Anyways?

Time is such a weird thing, no? I mean, back in cave(wo)man days, the only sense of when people ate was gaged by 2 things: their tummies rumbling and, I’m assuming, the sun (and whether or not the men brought home the bacon). So who was it that dictated 12:00 as the time to eat lunch? Or 6:00 for supper? or 8:00… 9:00… for breakfast?  Okay, of course…
