Hi, boos! I missed ya. It feels bizarre not to blog every night. I don’t like it, but some weeks I just can’t make it happen.
Anyway, it’s NEDA Awareness Week and I can’t help but think of my personal food revolution. I’ve been everywhere. As I edited photos of today’s eats, I smirked. Every phase is bundled up in one day. Every phase, that is, except for the phase made up of 100 calorie packs and 1,000 calories a day.
Overnight oats: 1/4 C oats, 1/2 banana, 1/2 C vanilla 2% Chobani, 1/4 C almond milk overnight. Peanut butter added in the morning.
I’ve been leniently vegetarian, stridently vegan and now carefreely everythingtarian. I’ve worn those labels, and you know what? It’s all good. It’s all good when I’m savoring my food, reveling in it, not thinking too much beyond it. It’s all good when I’m living in celebration of it instead of fear of it. It’s all good when I’m living without one very important label: disordered. And thankfully, that “when” is now, and that “now” has existed for the past few years. Through vegetarianism, through veganism, through everythingtarianism (mouthful)— it’s all possible. I’ve found my way.
I’d like to open this up to a discussion of hope and possibility. If you’d like, please share a bit of your own story or ask questions in the comments section. Much love to YOU!
