You Lose More Than Weight When You Go On A Diet

You Lose More Than Weight When You Go On A Diet

Diet culture tells us that when we lose weight we will therefore become happy, popular, successful and more. It shames us into thinking that we aren’t good enough and that our bodies are somehow wrong if they don’t fit societal ideals of the thin, lean body. Diet culture basically tells us that we’ll get everything we want in life if we just lose weight. This is a fallacy as diet’s not only don’t work but they won’t create the feelings and experiences we’re really hungry for.  The truth is, we lose far more than just weight when we go on a diet.

Chocolate Raspberry Balls

Chocolate Raspberry Balls

Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner I whipped up a Chocolate Raspberry Ball recipe.  If I’m being real though, I’d make these bad boys anytime because chocolate is good all year round. 😉  I used my favourite dark chocolate to coat the raspberry filling, which allows these to stand up to room temperature.   Read More

What Is Intuitive Eating?

What Is Intuitive Eating

When you decide you want to break free from the diet cycle, stop restricting, stop binge or emotional eating, it’s time to try something different. It’s time to step away from counting, tracking and weighing. It’s time to step away from meal plans and learn to listen to your body and eat intuitively.

Why I Stopped Giving My Clients Meal Plans

Why I Stopped Giving My Client's Meal Plans

When you become a certified holistic nutrition consultant one of the things you’re taught to do is create meal plans for clients.   It never has to be something set in stone and can be given as an example of what they can eat, which is how I started. The truth is I hated creating meal plans and it never felt good to tell people what to eat.  It felt off for me because it didn’t align with my beliefs and values. Read More

Creamy Potato Dill & Bacon Soup

Creamy Potato Dill & Bacon Soup

I don’t know about you, but I used to be afraid to eat bacon.  It’s too high in fat, I thought.  That’s one thing I credit to Paleo, is it helped me release my fear of animal products and fat, which are actually great for hormonal health.  That being said, I opt for pastured, organic, local bacon over the stuff you find in the grocery store.  And what better way to use bacon than in this delicious Creamy Potato Dill & Bacon Soup.
