We shared an Instagram post recently on comfort foods and how they get a bad wrap. I wanted to just rant a little more on this topic as I think it's extremely unhelpful and unhealthy to view comfort foods in the category of ‘bad food’ or ‘cheat food’ (I hate the term cheat food in … Continue reading Comfort Foods
Every good Aussie loves an Anzac Cookie and I thought I would get in early with my version, which is always a winner in our household. This recipe is based on a version by Annabel Langbein that I've edited to suit whatever ingredients we regularly have in our pantry. Feel free to change up your version … Continue reading ANZAC Cookies with Cranberries and White Chocolate
Late last year, I spoke a little bit about how things would be changing around here at Mindfoodly. You may have already noticed the difference. Well, here's why. I always wanted my blogging to be a true reflection of where I was at. I never wanted it to be forced or fake because the whole … Continue reading Things are changing
It’s no secret that we love our slow cooker. It's our saving grace for those busy days when you know you aren’t going to have time to stand over a stove for hours. There's a little bit of prep work involved in this recipe but the end result makes it well worth it! Ingredients 1.2kg … Continue reading Slow Cooker Beef Ragu Pasta
I'm sure you’re all well and truly sick of all the (unhealthy and unhelpful) New Year’s Resolutions coming thick and fast at the moment—I know I am! So, in the spirit of questioning the typically unquestioned, I thought I’d put together my own mindfoodly-style list of alternative 'resolutions' that don't involve dieting, starving your body … Continue reading Why Not Try Something Different This Year?
I don’t know about you, but for me eating is something I feel is a lot harder than it should be (I can hear you all say, “Duh, the eating disorder!”) but ED aside, we get so many mixed messages about what’s healthy, what time to eat, when not to eat, what to avoid and … Continue reading How the Bloody Hell Are We Meant to Eat?
I can't believe Christmas has come and gone already! It is seriously the best time of the year, but we really do hate how quickly it goes (I would totally live Christmas day over and over again...Groundhog Day style!). Matt and I have a little time off over the holidays so as always we’re using … Continue reading A Very Mindfoodly Christmas
Is anyone else absolutely ready for Christmas and a break from all responsibilities?! We have been super busy lately, which is why posts have been so few and far between. I was starting to feel bad about the lack of posts but then I thought, the reason I haven't had time to write new posts is … Continue reading Link Love: December 2016
It feels like forever since my last post and I really don’t even know where to begin because so much has happened. So, both to keep you up to date and to get my own head straight, I thought I would do a little recap of what’s been happening in our lives lately. First up, … Continue reading Recap: One Holiday, One Wedding and One More Reason to Recover
Everything about recovering from an eating disorder is counter cultural. While the world is screaming at us to exercise more and eat less, we’re trying to tell ourselves to put more on our plates and quit it with the obsessive working out. This is something that lately has been really hard for me. I think … Continue reading Don’t Tell Me About Your Weight Loss (Please!)
