Happy Monday! It’s been a busy few weeks for me, so my husband and I have been making some extra time to hang out, spend time with each other, and go on outdoor adventures lately. (Most recently, we tried snow shoeing!) We’ve had quite a bit of snow in the Chicago area recently, so it’s made venturing outdoors a little more fun, but also a little more hazardous when it comes to driving. Finnegan LOVES the snow, however, and I think he’ll be really sad when it all melts.
As a reminder: Today is February 15th, which means I’m sending out the newsletter later today. This month’s topic is how disordered eating affects relationships and enjoyment of holiday food. If you’re not already signed up for the mailing list, you can add yourself here.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I fall into food ruts, and no matter what I try, it seems like everything I eat is boring. When I’m not experiencing any cravings in particular, it’s hard for me to figure out which foods sound satisfying, which makes for a less than enjoyable food experience and leaves me feeling somewhat annoyed. I end up either mindlessly munching, in search of flavor, or I tend to lose the motivation to eat regular meals and snacks which always leaves me feeling awful. I try to be proactive about looking for new recipes, but I don’t always have the time. However, I find that the most inspiring/motivating things are when other people cook new food for me (who doesn’t love that?) and when I happen upon recipes on blogs when I wasn’t necessarily looking for them.
One of my favorite types of posts to read on other blogs are roundup type posts of meals and snacks. There have been many occasions that I end up finding just the inspiration I need to start enjoying food again when I’m in a rut for myself, and end up heading to the store to buy ingredients for a new and exciting recipe. Here are some of my favorites lately:

I share more about navigating a healthy relationship with food and making satisfying food choices in my new book, Fulfilled. In addition to sharing about my own experiences with restrictive diets, I explain in the book how I walk clients through the process of cultivating a sense of balance in their relationships with food, exercise, and their bodies. Fulfilled is available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, my publisher’s website, or any online or retail shops where you usually buy books!
