November’s Alignment, a Libra New Moon

Happy Libra New Moon! The time just keeps speeding up. These monthly alignment posts feel as though they’re becoming closer together. My pregnancy seems to be flying by. There’s so many changes and new developments constantly unfolding in my life these days that I don’t have much time to watch them happen anymore. I’ve surrendered myself to the flow of life and it’s a wonderful feeling. Trusting the universe to...

September Reflections & October Dreams + A Virgo New Moon!

Happy Virgo New Moon! I’m shocked that October is knocking on our doors already! This month’s been so busy with the new food journal, storms and my growing baby belly that it’s nearly passed in a blur of a dream. Loud and not at all unnoticed leaving us in a daze of emotions and chaos, but now it’s time to breathe again! This Virgo new moon is going to help...

Mindful Eating on a Mental, Physical & Spiritual Level

We’ve rewritten the definition of the word diet. We define it, now, as a certain plan you follow for a set amount of time in order to lose weight. The original, proper meaning of the word is overall what you eat on a day to day basis. It’s your lifestyle. Just like elephants have a diet and pandas have a diet, you also have a diet. Diets, as we’ve come...

Why You Should Ditch the Diet for Mindful Eating

Photo by Brigitte Tohm I don’t believe in dieting. Diets are often temporary changes stacked tall with strict rules and regulations that are seemingly impossible to follow and not starve to death. They stress us out and leave us in a state of perpetual hunger. Positive dietary changes are suppose to raise our vibrations. They’re suppose to make us feel lite and energetic, satisfied and whole on many levels. Often though,...

How to Eat Healthy & Organic Without Breaking the Bank

Photo by Caitlin Mclean  Healthy and organic food gets a bad wrap for being expensive. Many people immediately dismiss it because of cost. How many memes have you seen with a 99 cent burger and a 7 dollar salad that says this is why I’m fat? And I get it. As someone who was raised to agonize over every single penny and never spend a dime, I struggled when I...

Mindful Eating Cured My Health Problems

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with food, as I’m sure many people can relate. I love the way it tastes, the variety, the mouth watering satisfaction. I hated the way good-tasting food made me feel bad and fat. The more I learned, I hated the way the world had become. How it seemed most things were bad for you, healthy food was hard to come by and expensive when...
