How Hitting Rock Bottom May Be A Catalyst For Change

Yesterday (Tuesday)… was the worst. Like, one of those days that, as it is happening, you file into your top ten collection of worst days…ever.  I got on the wrong transit route not once, but twice. After having a driver miss my stop, then running four blocks, then having to take a taxi in a panic so I wouldn’t be late for an audition. Then riding the transit for two…

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…

Eats From the Week and Adding Calories

I missed out on WIAW this week. It’s been a busy week with many late evenings out of the house. But there’s been some good eats, so I’m using this Friday to recap some of the goodness that’s been keeping my belly happy. I’ve been adding extra calories, since I, you know, officially made that a thing and all.  I can’t…

Current Thoughts On Food and Working Out

  So I started back to working out this week.  Well, ok, I was never completely not going to the gym.  I was still going, on occasion, over the last number of months, but my visits were so unfocused. Most of them were just walks on the treadmill or bikes on the stationary bike as a means to read my scripts or let my mind wander.  I would do some occasional all…

A Rant: Why Do I Feel Like I Eat More Than Anyone Else?

So I actually wrote this post over a month ago, and then chose not to post it. But over the past couple weeks, I’ve had a few experiences that brought me back to see what I had written.  Specifically – I was in the dressing room (oh the wonderful things you hear when you spend hours a day in a small dressing room filled with women looking at themselves in wall sized mirros).&nbsp…

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…

Week In Review: Mood Struggles and Help From Family

Hi guys,  Last week my parents, my brother, and my sister-in-law came to Toronto to attend my performances. It meant so much having them here and being able to show them what all my hard work has been for… and to just show them what I love to do.  The shows went really well, and hanging out with my family has been so wonderful. However I still had a really tough week. I…

Seeing The Beautiful Things.

  Last weekend, as Dan and I took ourselves out for lunch at Panera bread, there was a woman sitting at the table beside us. She was on her own, drinking a big foamy latte and slowly munching away at a big, delicious, sugary muffin. She was reading some sort of self-learning book.  She was just sitting there. Enjoying herself. Relaxing. Reading. Completely on her own in the mid afternoon.    A couple days…
