  • Food not of my own making

    I enjoy having food cooked and served to me, as long as it’s something that will make my body happy, something that tastes good and is healthy. It’s very disappointing to be offered food that isn’t really what I want or need. This past week I was fairly happy with most of the meals I […]

  • Traveling food

    I took the time to prepare food for my flight, knowing that I would leave mid-day and arrive late in San Antonio, where I’m teaching and mentoring with Saybrook University’s School of Mind-Body Medicine at the residential conference. I made a big salad, a frittata, and a small chopped salad. I ended up eating the […]

  • A Week of Mindful Choices

    I have been careful this week in my food choices and amounts, and I am feeling more energetic and lighter in response. Looking forward to a bit more range in my choices on Saturday–a planned indulgence day! I am pleased to have made an accountability agreement with a friend to check in with each other by […]

  • Water everywhere

    Much water is flowing and the wind is swirling and moving the trees outside. I am making a commitment to myself to drink more water, as I know I feel better when I do. I’m actually making an effort to remember to have wine more frequently as well, having read recently about a study at […]

  • Re-establishing routines

    It does take time to pull out my cell phone and take a photo of what I’m about to eat, and to put them all together at night, just before bed. But I have come to appreciate that time; a moment to breathe before taking in food, 15 minutes to review my day, with eating […]

  • Quieting Down

    Back to my food collages after a month and a half break. Though I have not posted any since spring, I had continued creating them until mid-August, when my busy schedule interfered. I needed to solve a website space issue before I could get back to putting them up on the blog, but I’m back […]

  • Time is flying, while I take small steps

    When days fly by and I feel like I am barely keeping up, I especially appreciate the wisdom of keeping a practice like this food journal going. It has become routine, something stable and reliable that I have committed to. On weeks when I can hardly track how I got from there to here, I […]

  • A New Year of Eating, Dancing & Recipes

    I’m starting the year off right – I vowed to re-establish consistency on my morning movement practice, which is feeling very good. My body is grateful! My practice is simple: I light a candle, center myself, and then spend 20 minutes moving. What I do varies depending on my energy and inspiration. It can be […]

  • Finishing up 2011

    We are already two days into the new year, and I’m finally finishing up the food collages for the last days of 2011. I plan to keep up with these daily food collages, as they definitely do keep me accountable and attentive to what I am eating. I strive for that kind of consciousness in […]

  • Holiday excess

    How can it be that my last posted food collage was the 14th?!? These days are moving very quickly indeed. Now, post solstice, they are getting longer, and I am glad of this – my hibernation impulse has been more intense than usual this year, and the growing light is a good thing for me. […]
