I’ve come a long way in healing my relationship with food. Every day I am amazed that I don’t even think about stepping in the scale, that I eat what my body is craving, and that I stop eating when I’m satisfied. It may seem simple to most, but to many, many people, it’s not.
A real tipping point in my healing was when I started to talk about it. I hid my binge eating for over a year before I told my husband and best friend. I was so embarrassed, but they made me feel okay. They supported my feelings and I am sure that would not be where I am without them.
I have this account because I believe we’ve GOT to talk about the things that hurt us. You allow me to share something so personal, and feel okay about it. I love this account, and all of ya’ll. .
So my advice to you:
Talk about it. Ask for help.
Because venerability is so powerful, and you don’t have to go through this alone.
You might even help someone else while you’re at it.
AND because there’s nothing better than fudge, here’s a little peanut butter almond dream for ya. This is such a delicious holiday treat that is easy af to whip up yet sure to impress. ENJOY!
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
Prince of salt
Combine in a small pan over medium heat, add to a parchment-lined loaf pan, top with a half full of almonds (or any crunch!), cool in the fridge overnight, EAT ASAP.
I added some of this to my breakfast yogurt bowl today. Genius, I know💁♀️
