Screen Shot 2015-11-21 at 9.06.49 AMHi Spirit Junkies! Thanksgiving is just a few days away. And if you’re anything like me, you probably have some kind of food issue come up around the holidays. It’s very common when we’re in the presence of tons of food (and family) and out of our daily eating routines. More than once I’ve forgotten all my spiritual tools and piled food on my plate until I was overstuffed. But enjoying this food-centric holiday doesn’t have to be full of anxiety, guilt, deprivation or overdoing it.

In this video I share my #1 tool for having a spiritual relationship with food at Thanksgiving. Use this tool to eat in a way that nourishes you and lets you savor your meal. And if you want even more tools for the holidays, I’m excited to share with you my Finally Full digital course!

As you know I just celebrated 2 years off sugar! This is a miracle. You see, while my relationship to food is healthy today, it wasn’t always that way.

For 20 years I struggled with food addiction, binge eating and body image issues.
But today I’m free. I’m no longer afraid to sit down for a holiday dinner or face a buffet. I no longer overeat to the point of discomfort and regret it later. I now make positive, mindful food choices and feel at peace.

How did I make this shift?

Through my spiritual practice.

Prayer and meditation helped me release my addictive patterns.

My commitment to personal growth helped me heal my perception of my body.

And by strengthening my faith in the Universe I stopped relying on sheer willpower to get me through my food issues.

I am proud to say there is freedom from disordered eating and body image issues.
If you have issues around food, you’re not alone.

Our struggles with food can manifest in different ways – not eating enough, bingeing late at night after restricting ourselves all day, feeling guilty about every calorie, eating to avoid feeling, and so on.

Food has a way of driving us crazy during the holiday season especially.

But you can have freedom.

Join me for Finally Full: A Workshop on Spirituality and Food. You can participate in this 100% online course from anywhere via HD video or audio download.

In the course, I talk about food addiction and body image issues and guide you to create a healthy spiritual relationship to food. I also share the wisdom I gained from my own spiritual recovery around food addiction. SIGN UP HERE!

  1. It is always good to take some time to reflect before these ” events ” we have struggled with in the past.Thanks for this tool! I feel guided to share how important this is not just for Thanksgiving but during the entire Holiday Season coming upon us.Food for thought( no pun intended,honest )

  2. Thank you lovely – this is beautiful. We don’t have Thanksgiving here in Bali but this really applies to any festive meal .. living a vegan lifestyle always brings up many uncomfortable situations so hearing you speak about this with so much love and grace makes my heart smile – empowering me to stand strong and gracefully in my truth. You’re amazing 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for posting this, the holidays were always such a stressful time for me because I was always afraid of getting fat. This article really shows how to live from a place of love rather than fear.
