what I’m eating right now
I’ve been asked a lot what exactly I eat and how I’m staying centered, grounded, and free from emotional eating during these challenging times of 2020.
While healing emotional eating goes WAY beyond what actually goes in your mouth (we’ll save the conversation about mental junk food and it impacts on your physical body for another time), I thought it would be fun to share about once a month what I am consuming (and loving!) – physically, emotionally and spiritually to stay nourished and sane.
1. Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes
A lot of people think that once you heal your emotional eating you can’t ever have cookies, cake, or (my favorite) pancakes ever again. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Because freedom from food is not about what you eat, it’s about why you are eating…are you actually physically hungry?
That’s why I’m so excited to share my favorite pancake recipe with you. People literally hunt me down for this it is so good. With this and any kind of food, be sure to eat when you are physically hungry and stop when you are satiated. I always put the leftovers in the fridge because they make a great grab-n-go snack too.
2. This Awesome Video of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Guide to Her Signature Red Lip for Vogue
While most days I don’t wear any makeup at all, I do love a red lip and learning new beauty hacks. So when I stumbled upon AOC’s video, I was so grateful for there to be a video that isn’t focused on what you’re wearing but why you’re wearing it. Prepared to feel inspired and empowered, especially as a woman during these times, after watching this! I sure was!
3. The best book I read in a long time: Where The Forest Meets The Stars by Glendy Vanderah
Need a break from self-help books? Yeah, me too. Then I think you’ll really love this one I just finished. By far the best book I’ve read all year. It’s one of the ones that’ll make you want to read instead of watching Netflix at night. It made my heart grow two sizes!
I hope you find something inspiring and nourishing (or just plain fun) in these recommendations!
