Over the last year, I have been the one sharing all the joys of my food freedom and making it a point to say that “all foods fit” in my diet.
But for some, all foods do NOT fit. Food allergies and sensitivities are very real and can be a matter of life or death even for some. So how do you find joy and variety without the foods your body cannot tolerate?? Oh, let me tell you, I have got a TREAT for you today!
A tad under the weather this weekend, so just stopping by to share a new recipe and then back to resting for this girl. Hoping your weekend has been much better than mine!
Super excited to share this recipe–trust me, it’s so worth getting out from under the covers for a little bit! If you are a pesto fan like me, then THIS is going to make your day!
Last week, I asked you to start thinking about exercise and movement and your feelings toward it. Missed it? Not a problem! Catch up here!
So let’s start here: You miss a workout. Do you:
a. freak out like it’s literally the end of your world, feel guilty and then go extra hard the next day to make up for it
b. understand that life happens, while it would have been nice to move a little, you will be just fine
c. find yourself somewhere between a and b.
Finding yourself in letter ‘a’ or perhaps somewhere in a place that just doesn’t feel super positive? Let’s talk.
Every now and then a recipe gets lost in the shadows of other recipes and then one day I see it and think, how have I NOT shared this one yet?!
My sincerest apologies for keeping this donut recipe from you for so long. It was not my best judgement to keep it on the back burner as it has been sitting in my queue since about October. But don’t the say the best that comes to those who wait? I mean, at least Heinz does!
Let’s talk a little bit about the “E” word today. What’s the “E” word you ask?
Raise your hand if you have every used exercise to make up for what you ate. (My hand is raised.) Raise your hand if you have ever exercised to try to change the way your body looked? (Again, my hand is raised.) Raise your hand if you have ever done a particular exercise or exercise routine in order to get _______ (insert body part) just like someone else. (I better just keep my hands up even though they are getting tired.)
Why, why do we do this?? A lot of it has to do with our attitude toward exercise and our attitude toward our bodies.
