Peace with food is being able to make intuitive food choices and eat without guilt. It's generally not obsessing over food choices, fearing certain foods, or feeling "out of control" around food. To be clear, being at peace with food isn't "perfect eating" or always feeling great after eating. No one eats perfectly, feels totally … Continue reading how to make peace with food.
Happy Friday! The weekend doesn't have the same feel now that the semester is over. It's still something to look forward to, but I find myself barely able to keep track of what day it is so it sneaks up on me. I haven't shared favorite eats lately, so here you go. Hope there's inspiration … Continue reading 5 foods i’m loving.
I have a whole lot of compassion for anyone who feels out of place or unhappy in or with their body. I empathize because I've felt it too. It makes me sad that being discontent with our bodies is the norm. I think we're often hard on ourselves when approaching body discontentment. We get upset … Continue reading body acceptance.
I've been thinking about changing the name of the blog for a few months. The name Nutrition on a Mission isn't reflective any longer of what I hope this space will be. Food and nutrition are great, but just like I don't want them to be the central focus my life, I don't want them … Continue reading a new look + focus.

School has started up, and I'm again caught up in the post-break-settling-in, returning-to-routine process. The city has been g l o o m y. I am the one who picked a school in Boston, but a little sunshine once in a while doesn't seem like too much to ask for. As for the break, it … Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday.
Self-care, in my mind anyway, can be a difficult practice to feel good about. I end up feeling like I'm indulging myself. I do think self-care can become self-centered. If in every situation I put my needs above the needs of others, I'm overstepping the purview of self-care. Self-care does not justify the elevation or magnification of … Continue reading A way to practice self-care without feeling guilty.
Hi there! December and January are busy months. There are festivities to enjoy and work events and travel. Food is often rushed and because it's rushed, we end up with bowls of thrown-together ingredients that might not be super delicious or filling. In anticipation of those busy days, I brainstormed a few of my favorite, … Continue reading Easy, functional meal ideas for when you’re busy.
Less than one week left! It goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) that going home for the break will be totally wonderful. I want to spend as much time as possible cocooned in a chunky blanket with a book.
