Overcoming Emotional Obesity: Gabriel #4
Saturday, December 09, 2017      21 comments

Jon Gabriel tells me that if my body is fat it's because it wants to be fat. And it wants to be fat because it doesn't feel safe unless it's fat. So overcoming emotional obesity won't happen until my body stops wanting to be fat because it fee... Read more

High ACEs and Resilience #4
Monday, December 04, 2017      15 comments

So: lots of people have at least a 1 on their ACE score (adverse childhood experiences). That's not necessarily going to trigger disease problems. Although a majority of people who have an ACE score of 4 or more will have some kind of physical... Read more

Wellth. This is a new word for me. Encountered in a fairly fluffy new novel from the new books shelf at my library, called Fitness Junkie. But: although hilariously funny it's also pretty pointed and sardonic. www.amazon.ca/Fitne... Read more
Souping It Up!!

Enjoyed the comments on my black bean soup -- absolutely, vegan sausage would work or no sausage or . . . it's just what's available in the fridge pretty much. Love the pumpkin coconut chicken curry suggestion, maybe for next week! I qui... Read more
Black Bean Sausage Soup
Sunday, November 26, 2017      18 comments

This one smells delish! I began by semi-defrosting a package of Octoberfest sausage, slicing into thin coins and browning in the Pam-sprayed soup pot. And then adding chopped celery, carrots and onions to soften with the sausage: transferr... Read more
