some highlights from Bermuda /// and some things I learned: this was just a little family trip and our first time on a cruise, but the time with my family in a new place with new experiences (without my phone) really helped me learn a few things: • celebrate the little things because life is short • time away from your phone is much needed • don’t sweat the small stuff • you can change an experience by making the best of it rather than always looking at the glass as half empty • it’s good to push yourself out of your comfort zone because that is where growth happens • I am stronger than I give myself credit for • I can survive without taking pics of all my food 😂

haven’t had a proper toast in way too long… #dEats will be in my reel later today :)

i graduated i’m not usually the type of person that is good with big changes, but i think i’m ready to be pushed out of my comfort zone and into this new chapter of my life. everyone always told me college was going to be the “BEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE”, however, i thought if i was not loving every second of it, i was doing something wrong. the pressure of knowing life would be all down hill from here also wasn’t too reassuring. it took a couple years, but i eventually understood that it was MORE THAN OKAY for me to not love college, and I wasn’t alone in feeling that. once i made that realization, i soon accepted that I AM IN CONTROL of my own destiny, and when people say that life is down hill from college, you have a choice of whether you want to is accept that or reject it. i am unbelievably grateful for these past four years, the education i got, the people i met, but most importantly how much i’ve GROWN. without this growth, i would not have been strong enough to REJECT this “downhill” fate or understand that what i love may not be what everyone else loves or says i should love. there is so much uncertainty that lies ahead now. i was in a comfortable space and now life as i know it will be forever different. i’ll be pushed outside of my comfort zone, but through the nerves, i’m excited to keep striving upwards and see what the next chapter of my life brings 😊

CHOCOLATE DIPPED CLEMENTINES 🍊 on a big chocolate kick lately (if you couldn’t tell by my posts) 🍫 & i love chocolate with fruit so i figured i’d dip some clemmy’s! how to: • peel and separate your clementines • melt your favorite chocolate in the microwave at 30 sec intervals (i used @altereco_foods 90% dark) • dip the clementine slices halfway into the chocolate, lay on a parchment lined plate / tray • sprinkle with coconut flakes, flaky sea salt, crushed nuts, or anything you’re feelin! • place plate / tray in the freezer for at least 20 minutes until the chocolate sets & enjoy (store in fridge)

CHICKPEA + AVOCADO SANDWICH 🥪🥑 (the best, easiest, healthy & vegan lunch!) you all know i love my chickpeas, but i guarantee anyone and everyone will LOVE them like this! Chickpea & Avo Mash: → 1/2 can of chickpeas, rinsed → 1/2 avocado → juice from half a lemon → salt and pepper to liking → to make: mash all the ingredients together (i like to leave some whole chickpeas, but you can mash it as much as you like!) sandwich #dEats → @canyonglutenfree bread 🍞 , romaine lettuce 🥬 for a fresh crunch, and the chickpea mash 🥑

in honor of #nedaweek ….. even though bagels, toast, and sandwiches are all things that are very common to my page and diet today, that was certainly not the case 1 year ago when you would never catch me eating any of these “fear foods”. Like so many people in todays society, I took “healthy eating” too far to a point where it wasn’t healthy anymore. its been a long journey of healing, through which this community and all of you have helped so much along the way. i am exited and to continue on this journey that requires a lot of hard work, listening to my body, and most importantly getting to enjoy life and enjoy food. Food is fuel. Everyone’s body deserves to eat, to feel nourished, satisfied, and happy. this community has shown me so much & helped me recover, grow & now help spread awareness for ed’s and recovery which I am so grateful to do. I am so thankful to all of you who have followed me on my journey & have been going through similar journeys. everyday we get stronger together ❤️ Last thing I want to say is that yesterday, one of my Tiktoks helped someone overcome one of their fear foods, and as silly as it may sound, in that moment I knew that I am exactly where I need to be. I no longer need to be ashamed or scared of sharing my past because I have gone through everything for a reason, and now i am able to spread awareness and help others and for that i am truly so excited for!
