Feelings and Food: My Struggles With Intuitive Eating

Goodmorning friends,  I’m currently sitting at a McDonalds having an early morning breakfast and (decaf) coffee. I have an appointment with a dietician across the street, so I’m just having some sit down time before going in.  This dietician. I saw her for the first time about a month ago.  It wasn’t really something out of my choosing, but rather a request from the nurse I’ve been seeing.&nbsp…

Week In Review: The Links and Resources Edition

It just so happened that a lot of what I did last week involved links, so I’m taking that as an opportunity to share some recent things I’ve been using or enjoying with you.  I still see all these things as accomplishments. I see doing anything that is either new, something that has been on your to do list, something that you learned, or anything that benefits your soul in the self care…

Week In Review: Liminal Space and Small Accomplishments

Liminal Space.  A term Kaylee just recently introduced me to. I think maybe that’s a bit of where I am right now? If you saw this post, you know that I’m in a bit of a different energy space.  I so badly want to see my dreams and goals achieved and work hard to make them happen, but my soul also feels kind of tired. Its been working really hard, and I…

I’d Rather Be With My Pencil Crayons (Thinking Out Loud)

How am I? …. I’m really not sure to be honest with you. I’m good… But not in a hyper, energized, talkative and bouncy kind of way. I don’t even know if I can say I’m “happy.”   Am I happy with my life, as it stands at this moment? No…. I’m not really. I don’t have an acting job. My dreams are…

Digesting Emotions. What I Learned From BodyTalk.

As I mentioned on Monday, last week I attended a BodyTalk session. BodyTalk is basically impossible to explain and rather should just be experienced first hand – but in short, it works to balance out what the body may be currently holding onto or suppressing, and which – as a repercussion – is affecting our mental state. The body somehow sends messages, guiding the practitioner to areas where there is an imbalance, or where extra attention is…

Week In Review: Time to Slow Down, Rest, Restore

I’ve already written a lot. I’ve written more about my craziness and up and down feelings in these past couple of weeks than I usually do, so I hope to keep this brief.  There is a balance between pushing yourself in a way that you feel proud, and pushing yourself a bit too far.  For instance last week’s Week In Review – I regret none of it. I feel…

The Laments of a Highly Sensitive Person

Happy Sunday morning my doves, A part of me feels like I want to apologize for my post on Thursday. I know that is also a silly thing to do but work with me. That was the type of thing I would usually write in my personal journal. That day, a bit of a straw broke. I was exhausted from shoveling stress onto myself – totally self perpetuated, yet seemingly impossible to stop.  This exhaustion though…

Soften: It Is Fear That Paralyzes Us

Soften. I’ve had this word on repeat over the past week or so.  Not “breathe” Not “relax” Not even “release.” But… soften.  It seems to work in a completely different way than the rest. Like an authority figure that immediately gets your respect and attention. My body understands it.  If you’ve been reading recently I think you’ll know that I&#8217…

Eating From a Box: What I Ate Wednesday

I am such an advocate for whole foods. I absolutely want us all to eat a lot of real food. Simple food. Straight from the garden/farmers market/local/homemade as possible. Veggies veggies veggies veggies etc. etc.   And I don’t think that’s hard. In fact its incredibly easy. And can be very inexpensive. Take my Edesia Bowl, for example. The simplest whole foods thrown together to make one easy, beautiful and nutrient dense…

Falling In Love With the Beauty of Food: My “Edesia” Bowl (Recipe)

My Edesia Bowl is very special to me.  A warm, veggie filled bowl overflowing with taste and texture and chalk full of whole food nutrition. Gluten free. Vegan.      I don’t think I’ve ever talked about what started me on my road to recovery from an eating disorder.  It was actually, as anti-climatic as this sounds, falling in love with the beauty of food.  Growing up, I…
