What’s your [food] story?

Posted on

Stories are one of my favourite things, ever. Stories are powerful. We have our own stories, we have cultural stories, we have stories of history, stories of the future and stories just for fun. Everything is defined by stories we hear and tell. They can wipe out entire races, peoples and places as though they […]

Why this HAES dietitian stepped back on the scale

Posted on

A lot of dietitians, and health professionals who work from a non-weight focus often recommend not weighing yourself. Scales measure nothing other than the affect of gravity on your body mass. You would weigh differently on the moon, in space, on Venus, Mars and Jupiter. Without anything about your body changing. So really, that number […]

Well here it is, the final quarter of my 365 photo project. I’ve recapped the first two quarters, and now I’ll recap and reflect on the third as I move ever closer to the end (and my 29th birthday). I am not going to lie: taking a photo a day is getting a bit old […]

June update and links

Posted on

June is off to a busy start here. The upcoming weekend is the first weekend I’ve had zero commitments or plans since April. With all the business, and some life changing occurrences in the past month and a half an easy weekend of no set plans sounds like just what the doctor ordered. Especially because […]
