    *This post may contain affiliate links Happy Friday everyone! Kicking the weekend off with an absolutely delicious breakfast over here! I’ve teamed up with Pete and Gerry’s to make a recipe from Jessica Merchant’s (@howsweeteats) cookbook, Everyday Dinners! I decided to make the Embarrassingly Easy Breakfast Tacos, and they lived up to their name. Ready in just 10 minutes, these tacos were so fluffy and flavorful, thanks to Pete and Gerry’s eggs! P.S.

  • My Eating Disorder Recovery Story

    December 28, 2020juliasplate

    Here is the story, in bits and pieces, of my battle with anorexia nervosa. Eating disorders are real, horrifying illnesses that desperately need to be addressed and discussed more frequently. By far the most helpful thing to me during my recovery was hearing stories of other people who had gone through the same thing. Because of this, I see it as my responsibility to share what I’ve been through in hopes of helping others who are struggling. If you or someone that you know is in need of help, the National Eating Disorders Association has incredible resources and information. You can also call their…

  • Voices: September 2019

    December 28, 2020juliasplate

    (September 2019) Hi everyone! I just spent some time catching up on everything I’ve missed on here (Instagram) in the last week, and I was struck by just how encouraging this community is.  Post after post, reminding their people that they are loved, teaching important lessons, and sharing their hearts. Reading all of these had me feeling really inspired to share what’s been on my heart lately.  So, here goes.  If you are struggling, with an eating disorder, with depression, with anxiety, with anything else, you need to know that you are STRONG.  The battles that happen on the inside,…

  • Thoughts on “Love Your Body” July 2019

    December 28, 2020juliasplate

    (July 2019) Hi my people! I hope that Tuesday is treating you well lately I’ve been struggling with ED thoughts/body image a lot and in all honesty, I am so tired of it. But I often feel like there’s nothing else that I can do to get rid of this. I always hear people talking about how important it is to love your body. This phrase has always been confusing for me, because no matter how hard I try to, it is really difficult for me to love my body. So, I am instead choosing to try to SHOW love…

I can now see just how free I was, in terms of food, at this point in my life. . •3 years ago, I could…

  • Defeating the Winter Blues in College: February 2020

    December 28, 2020juliasplate

    (February 22nd, 2020) Hello my friends! Happy February! Today, we’re going to chat about an important topic: defeating the winter blues while you’re in college! In my opinion, wellness and health extend so far beyond food; mental health is so important and is a critical part of overall wellness. I don’t know about you guys, but for me, the most difficult part of moving to a new state has been adjusting to the weather. When I was looking at school, nobody told me that Michigan gets CLOUDY for 5 months every year. I didn’t realize how much of a sunshine-lover…
