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 because I’ve been too busy living, so really it’s a pretty darn good thing! Over the Christmas break we’ll be doing lots of thinking about what Mindfoodly will look like as we go into 2017, so stay tuned for that.
But in the meantime, some awesome peeps are writing some awesome stuff that you should ALL read.

This post is near and dear to our hearts. Kate stumbled through so many unhelpful “health” blogs (which caused plenty of damage along the way) before she found a few diamonds in the rough like Imma Eat That and Real Life RD. Please read this. Please seriously consider Kylie’s unfollow advice. It could literally save your life.

While we don’t have the same emphasis on Thanksgiving here in Australia as they do in the US, the message Robyn shares in this post about not dieting through the holidays is so relevant for everyone, especially as we get closer to Christmas. Our favourite line: “The holidays are about being with those you love, slowing down, eating awesome food just because it’s awesome and homemade, soaking up the season, and letting it just be that.”

More and more lately I’ve been getting excited at the thought of defining myself not by the eating disorder, but by the love I give, what I’m passionate about and by the identity I have in Christ. Jennifer has some really good tips for escaping an ED-centric identity that I’ll definitely be trying out in the new year.

Another one about living life without having the eating disorder front and centre. Some nice inspiration/motivation to keep recovering – even when it feels impossible.

Honestly, we could fill every single Link Love with Kylie’s post. Highly recommend you check them all out and if you’ve never read her stuff before you’ll be like a kid in a toy store! So much goodness! Here’s just an example: her goal in writing immaEATthat is to “1) help you listen to your body, 2) let you know it’s OK to listen to you body and 3) help you realize how freaking amazing it feels to listen to your body.” Love it!
