Surprise Egg-ttack

….or, “spontaneous egg-splosion”. Or, “sneak egg-sault”. They’re all cheesy enough to apply, so pick your favourite! : )

That shocking story in a wee second!!

Lunch from yesterday –

Quarrel of quinoa, garden veggie tempeh, chayote squash, raw honey, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, lemon zest, and thyme!

This morning’s brekkie…

Today, lunch begun innocently. Well-intentioned!

Hummus resting peacefully upon a sweet ‘tater…

+a happy little persimmon.

But the eggs had a different idea in mind. A devilish plan.

I microwave-cooked them, as my tummy needed immediate fillage. While they were in the microwave, no explosions took place – really special for me! I took them out, commended myself on a clean job, but about ten seconds later…

…one of the yolks popped + exploded! It hurt a little bit – hot egg was not friendly with my arm – but otherwise, the surprise was the worst part! (Has anyone else had this happen? My mom said she’d never had it happen to her before; outside of the ‘wave!)

I poked at this topic yesterday, but I’m really starting to deepen into the idea…pursuing happiness in every little nook! I want to drift naturally toward the building blocks of my life that make me feel light + happy. I want to release stress and tension through every deep, invigorating breath. I want to respect myself – I want to live a life built off of confidence and joy!

I’m also becoming aware off how off-track I’ve skidded, in terms of ED recovery. Especially, because my weight yesterday was its lowest – ever! Saying I’m going to eat more, and that I’m going to stop compulsively obsessing over food, won’t heal me at all until I passionately pursue it. I need to repair my vision of food, and simply loosen my mind…just eat with less thought! Just allow my senses to focus on food, but keep my mind out of it! I’m beginning a new plan for myself, of eating six times per day – no feeling over-stuffed, which as a result, causes me to feel emotionally uncomfortable. Alongside that, incorporating calorie-dense foods (in significant, nonrestrictive portions!!) is a small goal that I know can help me. Really, an opportunity to use more peanut butter…how could I ever let it slip by?! : ) I just need to hold on tightly to my dream of feeling healthy + vibrant!

Aaaanndd, it’s only one week until Christmas – what excuse do I have to not be overjoyed?! : D

Sweet little breakfast – 

Another Ezekiel English muffin! Jelly + maple almond butter and chocolate hazelnut spread.

Chubby persimmon!

…I gathered a small bundle of holiday tidbits while grocery shopping with my mom!

December issue of Whole Living,

+two husky candy cane friends! Gingerbread and chocolate filled. : )

Drifting deeper into the gingerbread + chocolate theme….Theo gingerbread chocolate bar! Half the bar has already disappeared. The ginger is so strong and yummy! Probably my new very favorite bar. (For now – I’ve been trying to whoosh away my diet into wider variety….chocolate = included!!)

Auditions for drama club’s February show are tomorrow! (Shoo, anxious energy!!) The cast should be posted before the end of the week – line memorization + practice is left for our own responsibility, over the holiday break. (No school = no organized rehearsals! Ah!) The new play is called “Titanic, Trial, and Tragedy”. It’s a medley of scenes from three shows: Titanic (not the movie), The Crucible, and Romeo & Juliet. I would loovvvee to play Abigail (The Crubible)…roles that are driven so powerfully by the character’s physicality + emotion are super fun. : )

Today was woven with vinyasa flow yoga, homework, guitar….and Doctor Who! I’m happy that I could help myself by relaxing, while still not putting my mind into a slump over getting “nothing done”. It feels nice to have found a gentle balance!

Now, I’m going to decorate the tree!

Sugary Soap Opera: Episode Two

An update from last Wednesday’s dramatic episode: my oven still isn’t fixed. 😦 Well, now, my parents have just decided it’s better to install a new one. I’ve made one batch of “no-bake” cookies this past week, but…it just wasn’t the same!

So, let’s let some positivity shine in – WIAW!! A smattering of what I’ve eaten the last few days! 🙂

(I think cinnamon and bread were the theme this week!!)

Ezekiel English muffin…one half with chocolate-hazelnut butter, Wegman’s Fall Harvest cereal, coconut, and oats – the other, same, except with pumpkin instead of the choco-hazelnut spread (pear + cinnamon on the side!) :

Sandwich with hummus, SprouTofu savory baked tofu, and spring greens:

Sweet tater topped with yoghurt + cinnamon, broccoli with olive oil, and cinnamon tofu:

“Platter” of an egg + bread, carrots with Justin’s maple almond butter, sliced apple with cinnamon, and Siggi’s vanilla skyr:

PB&J oats with pumpy-kin and milk:

“Amy’s” frozen pasta shells…my “lazy” dinner! 🙂 :

Pear + cinnamon:

Teeny salad of butter lettuce + spring greens, with goat cheese, raisins, olive oil, and sea salt:

Bread smeared with hummus, egg + paprika, and Brussels sprouts:

…And a happy WIAW to all!
