National Eating Disorder Week

Written by Kacy & Stacy. Posted in Blog.

The goal of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week is to promote public and media attention to the seriousness of eating disorders and improve education about the biological underpinnings, environmental triggers, warning signs and how to help those struggling. Education and direction to resources can lead to earlier detection, intervention, and help-seeking, ultimately improving likelihood of full recovery.
 
2014 Theme: I Had No Idea
This year the National Eating Disorders Association is stressing the need to address eating disorder misconceptions - as many individuals, families, and communities are not aware of the often devastating mental and physical consequences - and highlights available resources for treatment and support. We urge you to talk about the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that shape these disorders with your family, friends, colleagues and community by doing just one thing during NEDAwareness Week. Your participation will 1) raise awareness that eating disorders are serious illnesses, not lifestyle choices; 2) provide accurate information to medical, educational and/or business communities, and 3) direct people to potentially life-saving information and resources about eating disorders.

Some Just Won't Get it....And That's Okay!

Written by Kacy. Posted in Blog.

I had a conversation with someone the other day (who will remain nameless) that really hurt me but then I thought about it and had something turn my negative thoughts around.  I wanted to share this situation with you all.  Someone saw a small blurb about Intuitive Eating and said "I don't know how you help people... that paragraph doesn't tell me anything about how to eat healthy."  It really bothered me that someone would say this about something I am passionate about but I went ahead and sent the blurb anyway (with a few minor tweaks) to the potential client.  And guess what?  This person got it... wanted a healthy relationship with food just from that paragraph telling them what I do.

This is life.  Some just won't get it.  IE is not for everyone and honestly won't help just anyone.  The good thing is some people DO GET IT and that's why I do what I do.  Let's remember this in all aspects of our lives.  People aren't always going to get what we do but when they do and they take time to learn about it, they might find out what a wonderful thing it is. 

Are you ready to take that step? Do you have questions about intuitive eating? E-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will be more than happy to get your started on this path of peace with food.

Fun Things Coming

Written by Kacy. Posted in Blog.

Not much going on this week.  We did do our second round of grocery shopping for crockpot meals.  It went very well.  $175, 4 hrs to shop, prep and clean kitchen, 13 meals. I'd say we did pretty good!  We have some fun things coming up.  We will try to update the blog later in the week on what's going on with us! Stay warm.
