I bang on a lot, on this page, about the importance of teaching our kiddies to have a good relationship with their body and food. But it's just as important for us grown ups to have a good relationship with our body and food, maybe even more important, because we are the ones role modeling for our children/nephews/nieces/grndkids/friends kids etc! Eating Disorders are serious medical conditions that require specialist input (think anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder). Disordered eating has the same symptoms as an eating disorder, just the severity of behaviours are not as high, but the damage they do, especially to our mental and social well being is huge. And eating disorders and disordered eating can happen to anyone, in any size. Lot's of people think "oh but I'm not skinny, my eating is fine, I just need more will power/more exercise/more healthy eating/restrict carbs/fat/sugar more" But eating disorders and disordered eating can occur in anyone, in any sized body and poor health effects (physical and mental) can occur in small bodies, very large bodies and anyone in-between. Normal eating is flexible, you eat ice cream when you fancy it, you eat broccoli when you fancy it. If you don't you can leave it there and it's no big deal. Normal eating allows you to comfortably eat with family and friends, to enjoy social occasions, to sometimes over eat (say at Christmas) and sometimes under eat and it's not big deal. Normal eating means you crave vegetables just as often (or even more) than you crave chocolate. Normal eating means you do not place any moral values on what you eat, how you or others eat or the size and shape of your body or someone else's. Normal eating allows you to tune into your hunger, to eat when hungry, to stop when satisfied, to eat regularly in a way that suits you. Normal eating is enjoyable. Normal eating means that when you are really hungry and there are not your favourite foods available, you eat what is served or what is available and it's no big deal. If you have been on the dieting band wagon for too long and want a new approach, get in touch. I do face to face and Skype consultations ❤️
Hot, hot, hot day = need frozen yoghurt Frozen strawberries plus plain yoghurt and whizz til smooth.
Just love customers sharing their recipe ideas with us ! .... thank you 💕 See @yuweiipan for recipe on a healthy & delicious new slant on a traditional “steak & veggies”, topped, of course, with #belladotti Salad Seeds 😉 ... enjoy 🍃. . . #eatyourgreens #easydinner #easydinner #healthyrecipes #healthyfood #midweekmeals #eatingforpleasure #steakandveggies #steakandveg #saladseeds #saladtoppers #whatsfordinner #itswhatsfordinnertonight
Saturday plans, but make it Taco Bell. 🍔🌮 Yet let’s not call it a “guilty” pleasure, because that puts a moral value on food and none of us need more things to be judged on. Occasionally having something you find delish—even if it isn’t the most empirically healthy—is important for your sense of joy. Ya gotta live, yo! 🍔🌮 That said, per the new-ish field of nutritional psychiatry, it IS best for mental health to cut down on processed foods and sugar. Several studies have shown that improving what you consume can help ease or even prevent depression. You know the drill: more fruits, grains, fish, veggies. 🍔🌮 Meaning: Today, I’ll be having those tacos with extra tomatoes... 😅 📷: @lawrsonpinson
Uncharacteristcally unseasonal rainbow lunch brightening a cold grey day. What a very lucky bean I am that one of my very greatest pleasures (chopping vegetables) is something I get to do every day. #simplepleasures #vegetables #eatyourgreens #eatingforpleasure
Match made in Heaven 😍😍Can't get enough of this ridiculously creamy #burrata pugliese. It’s so perfect with these intensely sweet tomatoes 🍅 and aromatic basil 🌿 I come home so late most nights and tonight this Italian salad has made the bestest dinner drizzled with #redorooliveoil 😋😋 For me this is 🇮🇹 on a plate 😃 #sotasty #burratasalad #redoroprimeolive #heartydinner #eatingforpleasure #italiancuisine #simpleyetdelicious #nomnom

Starting from today, I will be trying out a bunch of food items and then I will be reviewing each of them.😋 First of all is the smoked ham & cheddar on malted flake bread from Booths which according to the packet has about 518 kcal or 2167 kj per pack. The bread tastes just like any other normal bread with the ham and the cheese blending well with each other. No wonder the sandwich is part of the meal deal and it is made my home county of Lancashire. Top job from Booths!!😀 I give the sandwiches a 9/10 for a valiant effort!!!😀 The second food items are the gingerbread Doo Scooby from Greenhalgh's. Now why do Greenhalgh's sell these types of confectionery items named after a popular children's cartoon mystery dog? Because children have loved Scooby Doo so much over the years that Greenhalgh's have now made these gingerbread's biscuits as a tribute for many children to buy and eat. For all that hard work I give the I ate a whopping 10/10!!!😀 The gingerbread itself is so pure and has the usual sweet taste along with the icing on top to make it a sweet flavour!!😀 Overall, Greenhalgh's have perfected the art of making what appears to be top notch gingerbread biscuits!! #greengalghs #booths #confectionary #sweettaste #outdoorlunch #eatingforpleasure #foodcriticinmyleisuretime
These have just arrived today, and given my last post their arrival is perfect timing!! . Really excited to get stuck into this, and as I have to follow such a strict elimination diet as my inflammation is still strong I’m thinking I will follow the 30 day protocol in #theautoimmunesolution book and get reading before I delve into the cookbook. . At first glance it looks really interesting and varied - I’m really eager to give it a good go! @amymyersmd . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Seriously yellow scrambled eggs and a very small portion of beans on a toasted @geniusglutenfree roll. So tasty. . I really need to focus on getting veg into me at lunchtime, and really focusing on a reduction of carbs in the afternoon. Since I’ve found all the gluten-free options they’ve all come into my diet all at once, especially these rolls, so I need to consciously take steps to reduce their inclusion and just have them sparingly. . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Eating for Pleasure Approaching meals mindfully isn’t just about upgrading your awareness — it can enhance your digestion, satisfaction and metabolism, too. Why is eating for pleasure so important? We are all programmed to seek pleasure and avoid pain. It’s the most primitive part of the human nervous system. So, when you eat, you are seeking the pleasure of food, and you are avoiding the pain of hunger. But here’s the trick: You can’t receive pleasure unless you are aware that you are engaging in it. So, if you’re eating food and you’re not paying attention — if you’re watching TV, talking too much, rushing or reading — you will potentially miss the experience of pleasure. And, if you do not get the pleasure that you seek, the brain often interprets that missed experience of pleasure as hunger. You’ll want more food, so then you’ll be wondering: Do I have a willpower problem? But there’s no willpower problem — the problem is we are not entirely there when we eat. We’re not getting the full experience, and so we are left feeling hungry. So, what we think of as overeating is actually about underappreciating? Yes, this thing we’ve called overeating is really a product of our culture, which has us moving too fast. And the faster you go, the less your brain and digestive physiology can actually experience what’s going on with food. It takes the brain about 20 minutes to realize when we’re full. And the link between pleasure and your metabolism? Pleasure catalyzes a relaxation response, and the same switch in your brain that turns on relaxation — the parasympathetic nervous system — also turns on full, healthy digestion and assimilation. Conversely, the same switch in your brain that turns on stress, anxiety and fear — the sympathetic nervous system — turns off digestion and assimilation. So, there is a direct biochemical connection between eating with pleasure and our digestion and long-term calorie-burning metabolism. You could be eating your favorite ice cream cone, but if you’re miserable and stressed-out and guilty while you’re eating it, you are not receiving that pleasure.
This little mix of essential oils in a hot epsom bath followed by boswellia (frankincense) oil rubbed into all my painful joints last night really has helped, feeling considerably better this morning (still in pain but it’s not quite unbearable). . Been really struggling mentally with constantly being in so much pain and also feeling exhausted all the time. Having even a tiny improvement was so very needed. . Yes, that’s a glass of red wine shining down over the oils, I also took that for a bath with me 🍷 . They are lavender, red thyme and geranium. Smelt so so nice and was really soothing. . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
A #mouthwatering display at the Borough Market in London. #cheeseandchutney - a perfect match.
**BINGE** I ate these 3 bags of delicious Pom-Bears in one go sitting in my car after doing the weekly shop 😳 Monday’s are difficult as my husband comes home super late so we don’t eat dinner till gone 9.30, by which time I’m ravenous and have snacked hard.

Korean ginger chicken soup with a homemade samba of fresh ginger, spring onions, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil. With basmati rice, Chinese leaf and sugarsnap pea. And a big bowl of the delicious bone broth seasoned with pink Himalayan salt at the end 💕 . It’s basically a whole chicken poached in water with LOADS of ginger, spring onions and big red jujubes. . So freaking tasty, and so freaking easy 🙌🏼 . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue #bonebroth
Just booked this beautiful little cottage in the Cotswolds for a long Valentine’s weekend away - cannot bloody wait! . Had a serious case of the January Blues this weekend, literally so tearful and down, so we decided to organise something nice to look forward to 💕🏡✨🥰 . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
On my second cup already, needing the energy boost although I’m certainly feeling better than I was last week. Added the @alpro single cream, it’s really very nice. . Thinking it may help to get back to the gym soon for both fatigue and inflammation, but I’m feeling pretty nervous for many reasons. Will see how I feel in the week... . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Bangers and mash 👌🏼 Made the mash with half butternut squash/half potato, it was really good, will defo do that again. With red onion gravy made with cornflour rather than flour so it’s gluten free. And peas and spinach. . Despite only being awake for less than 7 hours I’m super tired. Going to make a hot drink, have a shower and get into bed for cuddles and sleep 😴💤💤💤 . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Brunch! Seriously softy scrambles and loads of smoked salmon on half a @geniusglutenfree roll with coffee and @alpro cream, CBD oil and my various morning supplements. . Had hoped to get out and about today but I’m just so sore and tired (maybe I did sleep drive to Sainsbury’s: see my prev post). May have a snooze. . Chronic illnesses are fucking bullshit 🤣 Just when you think things may be improving, it gets worse again! Lol self care rest day for me today 💕 . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Our dinner order last night from a local South Indian takeaway - was soooooo good and not fatty or greasy at all. I didn’t have the naan as gluten, but we had so much else I didn’t even need it 🤣 . Was so tired last night couldn’t face cooking and forgot even to take a pic! Has a glass of wine and G&T and was in bed by 10.30 👵🏼 . Slept badly again because of fire in my hands and knees, stupid fucking RA! But took my injection last night so hopefully that will start to help soon, and in the meantime gona cook a nice healthy brunch and smoothie 👌🏼💚 . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
How can I still be so tired???!!! Slept for almost 8.5hrs, and awake for just over an hour (my hands were flaring with RA last night for some reason). Really REALLY would love to wake up one day actually feeling rested for a change, this illness is so bloody annoying!! I still feel asleep!! . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Breakfast. Need this coffee sooooo bad!! . Already had another 3 pills when I woke up, these ones here are for after eating. Plus my herbal medicine which is slightly different from last month. It’s more disgusting but actually better as the taste doesn’t linger for so long. Plus lots of water, as always. Been too tired to make my usual smoothies but will try to get back in to it over the weekend.. . Hopeful I’ll be more productive today... can’t be any worse than yesterday surely! . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Desperate to sleep better tonight so made #haldidoodh Didn’t have any almond milk so made some homemade nut milk from almond, walnut and coconut in my nutribullet. With turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper and plenty of honey. Was a bit of a hassle as had to strain it, but tasted nice. . Along with my nighttime tablets, I’m now ready for bed! Please let me sleep 🙏🏼 . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Hello you!! Ribeye steak, griddled halloumi, homemade salsa verdi and a bag of salad 💚 . Never made salsa verde before but I’ll be DEFO doing it again!! Handful each of parsley, basil and mint finely chopped, crushed clove of garlic, 6 or so cornichons chopped then smashed in a pestle and mortar along with 6 anchovy fillets, teaspoon of capers, teaspoon of Dijon mustard, splash of red wine vinegar and a very good slug of olive oil. Mixed all together it’s bloody delish! . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Getting to really actually enjoy a black coffee ☕️ 🖤 . I am really struggling with fatigue today and my concentration levels are close to zero. Not the one when you’re a solicitor trying to give people rather complex legal advice 😵 . I ended up drinking 2 cups of coffee yesterday but then despite being seriously tired I just could not sleep last night. This is my second today so hoping it won’t keep me up again tonight. Need it though as I’m literally 💀 . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Well this year has certainly been up and down - or down and up! . The rise in the summer coincided with my honeymoon then getting really ill needing a shit ton of antibiotics then a terrible flare in my rheumatoid arthritis leaving me unable to walk/get out of bed on some days let alone do any exercise! . Given that I’m pretty happy with my progress this year. I am going to forgive my body for this awful last 6 months and focus on the coming 6 months feeling positive and happy :)) . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Chicken and bacon carbonara 👌🏼both gluten and dairy free thanks to @sainsburys #freefrom spaghetti, @alpro cream and manchego sheep’s cheese :)) . Added a tad too much salt, but it’s still really good. And so easy too! . I put the spaghetti on to boil, fried some chopped chicken thighs, bacon and plenty of garlic, then added a cup of the pasta water, a bag of spinach, in with the pasta and cheese then off the heat cracked in 3 eggs (one per person) and stirred the eggs in, salt, pepper and a bunch of chopped parsley. The key is to turn off the heat before adding the eggs, I’ve made scrambled egg pasta in the past and it wasn’t very nice, looooool! . And I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow 🙌🏼 . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Trying to get back into drinking ginger tea daily for inflammation and to try to ward off colds! . My inflammation levels have got A LOT better, fingers crossed my injection is starting to work, and gona try come off the very high doses of ibuprofen I take daily again. . But before I try that again I need to be really strict with my ginger intake, as I don’t want to experience any more flares, don’t think I could take the pain again and it was a dramatic failure when I stopped in November before my injection had started to work! . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Red Thai veggie curry from @sainsburys with the addition of some king prawns. It’s actually pretty good, and super filling! . Although I wasn’t awful over Christmas I did mostly eat and drink as I pleased, so back on it today with sensible choices to fuel and heal my body. . Was not at all feeling happy about returning to work today, slept terribly and felt pretty anxious yesterday, but so far it’s not been as bad as it felt it would be last night 🤣 . We’ve not opened the firm to clients yet and did a bit of a spring clean so easing back in gently. . Still, cannot wait to get home this evening! My husband is still off work so it made coming in even harder! . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
Cooking seasonally is so important to the value of the food and the nutrition it provides for your body.

Happy Christmas everyone 💕🎄💫🤶🏼🎅🏼🥂✨ . What a FEAST we had! Slow cooked (5hours) butter basted turkey and all the trimming!!!! Sooooooooooo good!! . I’ve not been feeling myself so my mother-in-Law offered to host Christmas this year, which was so nice and meant that although I helped a little I could really relax and enjoy without all the shopping, cooking and cleaning! Feeling very rested :)) .

Haha. What a great idea. I mean after all we have the power to control this and the gurus say ... “ our beliefs create our reality”. Merry feasting! #happyholidays #eatingforpleasure #beliefscreatereality #mindset
After a couple of zero carb/carnivore days (plus cheesy beef patties and butter fried egg for lunch), all I wanted last night was a cooling salad. Made it with escarole, butter and iceberg lettuces and tomato, in a Dijon-balsamic vinaigrette with plenty of extra virgin olive oil. Topped it with sunflower seeds for crunch, my handpicked homemade caper leaves and berries for flavor, and canned mackerel for protein and Omega 3s, which I borrowed from the cat treats stash. It hit the spot, although I also had several salami-cream cheese roll ups before calling it a night! #eatingforpleasure #eatingforrecovery #veganrecovery #exvegan #eatrealfood
Y'all. This fruit cup is the size of my head. It's accompanying my celery juice 😊 and there's no way I could smash this much fruit! I was stunned by the price and couldn't resist. Christmas cookies meet your nemesis! 😂 Please note that I'm drinking a small amount on an empty stomach in the morning and that is literally the only thing I'm really changing in my diet. Food is so personal, even more so than religion. You eat multiple times a day, putting food into your mouth and chewing it and swallowing it. Food is medicine: tell me the quality of what you eat doesn't effect how you feel mentally and physically later. I was a vegetarian and vegan for 15 years. I believe there are very real benefits of eating a diet filled with fresh produce and foods that we can pronounce, but however you choose to eat is on you and my preachy days are over. 🌮🍗🍋🍜🥚🥙🥑 You know all of this, I'm preaching to the choir, but please friends, be gentle with yourself. This is a heavy time for many and stress-eating out of overwhelm or even for pleasure won't make you feel your best. Bring your consciousness to your body and how it feels and listen to it when it speaks. And when you don't, bring gratitude to your body for knowing how to find equilibrium anyway. Oh god this is a bad pun, I'm sorry, I love you: HAVE A FRUITFUL HOLIDAY.

Some days, fat bombs won't suffice and the amazing local bakery, whose siren song and intoxicating smells you've managed to resist for weeks, provides the perfect bite-sized indulgence: crispy and perfectly creamy millefeuille and a chocolate truffle for dinner tonight. #tistheseason #frenchpastries #sweettreat #eatingforpleasure #guiltfree
Pickling some sunshine on a gloomy day. Christmas lunch food prep begins: this time next week we'll be enjoying this pickled fennel with pink grapefruit, red cabbage and smoked salmon as a starter before we hit the main event. #pickling #eatingforpleasure #eatyourgreens
My favourite festive salad! Leftover chicken shredded and pan roasted until it’s crispy, then cashew nuts, five spice powder, dried cranberries and honey until all mixed. Then in a big bowl with fresh coriander, mint, pomegranate seeds, cucumber and mixed leaves. With a sauce of lime, clementine and ginger juice, soy, olive and sesame oils and a splash of red wine vinegar. So so tasty and so so easy!! . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #healthy #eatingwell #eatwell #rheumatoidarthritis #fuckra #rheumatoidarthritisdiet #arthritis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmunepaleo #paleo #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #intuitiveeating #eatingforhealth #eatingforhappiness #eatingforpleasure #fuckrestrictivedieting #balance #chronicpain #chronicillness #dairyfree #glutenfree #leakygut #chronicfatigue
