America, We Can Do Better Than This

This weekend, I attended my fourth craft fair of the year at a small farm in Northern Connecticut. I enjoy craft fairs, for the most part, and did well at the other three, so I had high hopes for this one. On Saturday morning bright and early, I loaded up my car, put on my […]

Intuitive Eating Update

I wrote a while back about my long and complicated journey with intuitive eating on Nourish. Since then, I’ve experienced a lot of changes in my life, from my diet to my schedule to my activity level to my overall attitude towards food, that have had a pretty significant (and positive!) impact on how I […]

Incredible Physical Health Benefits of Veganism

It’s been over two months since I transitioned to veganism, and I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made—for the animals, for the planet, and, as I quickly discovered, for my health.

My Transition to Veganism (Part One)

For most of my life, I’ve been a vegetarian. I stopped eating meat when I was seven, then seafood at age ten. Vegetarianism was all I ever knew and something I was very proud of. After all, my lifestyle was more sustainable for the environment, better for my health, and wasn’t harming animals . . […]

When the Kitchen is No Longer Scary

I used to be terrified of the kitchen. Not of the room itself, of course, but what went on inside it. Back then, I was deeply entrenched in anorexia and was convinced that food was my worst enemy. So the kitchen, with its cabinets packed with snacks and sweets and its appliances that would produce […]

My Experience with the Pfizer Vaccine

“We have a vaccine for you. Can you be here in one hour?” This was the call I received from my local hospital on the afternoon of March 12th, completely out of the blue. A couple of weeks earlier, I’d joined a no-waste program that distributes leftover vaccines at the end of the day. (Many […]
