Feeding Your Family by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on May 20, 2015 in Babies, Big Kids, Nutrition, Toddlers, Your home |

I am reading a book by nutritionist Elleyn Satter entitled Your Child’s Weight: Helping Without Harming (Birth Through Adolescence). Now, before you stop reading this article because your kids don’t have weight problems, neither do mine! This book was recommended to me a nutritionist because I was griping about feeding my family: when I put in […]

It’s Time To Come Clean: My Struggle With Bulimia

Posted by curlyq on May 18, 2015 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

My heart is pounding in my ears as I type this. I don’t know why since I don’t have to write about my struggle with bulimia; rather, I want to write about my struggle with bulimia. Now that I am on the other side, I feel like I can share what I’ve learned and try to inspire others […]

1 Month of Meals in 2 Hours

Posted by curlyq on September 6, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Marriage, Nutrition |

Picture by MomTimesFour I’ve read a lot about making dinnertime easier, but haven’t really moved past the reading part. Until last month! And, oh my goodness! What in the world was I waiting for?! I haven’t cooked in 3 weeks thanks to the one hour my husband and I spent assembling Ziploc bags full of […]

Giving Yourself Permission to Eat, Part IV by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on May 15, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

Chapter 5: Feed Yourself Faithfully You will likely not do a good job of eating if you are casual about feeding yourself, grab food when you happen to think about it or when hunger drives you to it, absent-mindedly snack and nibble instead of taking time to feed yourself, or chronically restrict what you eat.

3 Ingredient Summer Sorbet

Posted by curlyq on May 8, 2014 in DIY Home, Nutrition, Products we love |

Summer always gets me thinking of my Dad’s Mom who everyone, even small children, called by her first name. “Patricia” was a wonderful cook who was always entertaining in her glass house overlooking the Tangipahoa River. She kept this sorbet on hand for her visitors to have a refreshing treat after a morning on the beach. This […]

Giving Yourself Permission to Eat, Part III by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on April 4, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

Eat As Much As You Want Does the name of this chapter make you nervous? It certainly made me nervous! Satter quickly reassures us by noting that fear of letting us eat as much as we want leaves out an essential part of the equation: the body’s wisdom. Being hungry can be a positive and exciting feeling […]

I have already summarized Chapters 1 and 2 of Ellyn Satter’s Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family here. Below I will briefly summarize Chapters 3, “Honor Your Appetite.” Hang on to your socks! This is radical! (Some of this stuff is taken verbatim from Satter’s book.) Honor Your Appetite We are often afraid that if we […]

Giving Yourself Permission to Eat, Part I by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on April 4, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

I have endured a lifetime of disordered eating and am experiencing a renaissance in feeding myself for the first time in my life. It is liberating. It is nurturing. It is nourishing. It’s not going to make me fat or skinny. And I’m sharing this in hopes that it can help even just one person feed him or herself […]

Homemade Baby Food Made Easy by Granola Mom

Posted by curlyq on May 31, 2013 in Babies, Nutrition, Products we love |

I’ve seen the moms standing on the baby food aisle of the grocery store staring at the giant wall of baby food, picking up random jars and packs reading the front, the back, putting them back on the shelf.  Repeat.  Repeat.  Eventually she picks a few tosses them in her basket and moves on.  If […]

Cooking With Confidence: Chef In Training by Cafe du Mom

My mom is not a cook. That’s not to say she doesn’t have her signature dishes – her shrimp creole, crawfish etouffee, and artichoke cheese squares are out of this world! But for the most part, we grew up on “hamburger casserole,” spaghetti and meat sauce, and roast beef (the kind with the grains of […]
