Going On The Low-FODMAP Diet? (Thinking Out Loud)

I mentioned in a recent post that I’ve been experiencing some very discouraging stomach discomfort as of late. Well, really, I’ve been experiencing strange stomach discomfort for I’d say three years now, but because my discomfort has never been what I considered “IBS” – I struggle with more “tightness” rather than bowel distress – I never thought my problems had anything to do with digestion. Or food at…

A Week of Celebration: My Brother’s Wedding

Hello there! I am now back and writing from my Toronto home, but if you’d had caught me two days ago, my desk would have looked a little more like this… home I spent last week at home with family to celebrate my brother’s wedding, which ended up being a week long celebration it seems. We aren’t even Ukrainian, but boy did I get a taste of what those “three days weddings…

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…

Recent Eats. And uh, Lots of Cake…

  Let’s clear the pictures off my phone, ya? I mean uh, let’s celebrate food and get some meal inspiration. Happy Wednesday you foodies.  Breakfasts. Going savory, apparently… A mix of quinoa, shredded kale, parsley, cucumber and grape tomatoes in a creamy miso/maple dressing topped with a fried runny egg.   #yolkporn Three words: Big. Cheese. Scone   Recycled pic but finished off that farmers market peameal bacon   &nbsp…

Dinners Lately: Repeating and Using Leftovers

Last week I brought you some creative breakfasts I’d been trying. This week I’m taking you into the dinners category. Not going to lie…I’ve been eating kind of weird lately. But also kind of…good? My lack of desire/time to cook has been at an all time low. This complete desire to spend as little time as possible actually cooking, but still wanting delicious food in my…

Recent Eats Catch Up (What I Ate Wednesday)

What happens when a lady has no desire or time to blog about food for a couple of weeks? …. she brings it all back in a catch up recent eats post! In celebration of lighter things – and just for a little much needed fun for both you and I – I’m sharing some of the good eats I’ve been enjoying over the last few crazy weeks.  There’s been…

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…
