The Day I Followed Canada’s Food Guide (What I Ate Wednesday)

Disclaimer: 1) This is a long post – go grab your coffee. 2) If you are easily lured in to following any sort of dietary “plan” this post may be triggering. There is also mention of calories. Please either skip this post or read with caution if you feel this may affect you.    In Canada, we have what is called “The Canada’s Food Guide.” In the states, there is something very similar called, “My Plate…

My Relationship With Wheat: What I Ate Wednesday

Potentially triggering material in today’s post.  If you find yourself sensitive to food myths and easily absorbed into food scares, please be careful when reading.    I have a really unfortunate relationship with wheat.  Well, with carbs in general, but wheat is by far the leader of the pack.  Let’s go back, oh, 7 years. I remember the afternoon quite clearly. I was browsing some random mini-mall book store with my…

Happy Valentine’s Day To Me (What I Ate Wednesday)

Will someone please just take these damn thoughts out of my head? Sorry guys. Sometimes to beat away thoughts, you’ve just got to get a little angry. Over the last couple days, I’ve been bombarded with an onslaught of food guilt. Calorie counting and spinning numbers are looping around and around in my head like – to actually use the saying in complete accordance – a broken record. A really annoying, lumpy, scratched…

What I Ate Wednesday: Recent Eats

Hello Wednesday!      Since I (1) missed WIAW last week and (2) my eating has been less than structured lately (aka many, many tupperwares and many dark rehearsal rooms) I wanted to just show you guys some of the good eats I’ve been filling up on as of late (for more Lately: Kitchen Creations see here).  Although this post may not show it, I’ve really been eating a lot…

An Intentional Day: What I Ate Wednesday

Some days… just need to be a little more intentional than others. By intentional I mean… Monday was a super hard, gross day. I just woke up so anxious. Soo anxious. A crawling-out-of-your-skin-everything-feels-uncomfortable type of anxious. I ended up leaving my house after trying to sit for 10 minutes at the breakfast table because I just had that feeling of “I need to get out of here.” &nbsp…

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…

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…

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…

Home Is Where the Heart Is (and the food, tea and power outages)

Back home. It’s really interesting being here again after having lived here all summer. I moved home to work on my recovery. This was my home for four whole months. And yet it feels like it was a life time ago.  Its kind of a weird feeling. I do feel like I have a stronger connection and ownership of the place now – much more than I have in the past 10 years, since before last summer I…

What I Ate Wednesday: Cleaning Out The Freezer (with Eminem)

I’ve probably done a What I Ate Wednesday with this exact title (minus the Eminem part). I seem to be always cleaning out the freezer. Especially when I’m about to go away….. which for me is on Monday when I leave for home to spend Christmas with my parents for 10 days. Thus I’m officially into all things “leftovers” and digging into the freezer for all the treats and…
