Cooking for your Spirit- ThanksGIVING

In honor of the essence of Thanksgiving, we came up with a few new creative ways to express gratitude to get into the Thanksgiving spirit. Gratitude has been linked to everything from improving happiness, body image, sleep, life, you name it. Instead of consuming spirits we Celebrate this year in the True Spirit of Thanksgiving! It is a gentle reminder to love those at our tables and beyond.

For some a little planning can go a long way especially when you have a history of disordered eating. In the midst of this food-focused holiday event could be far from a relaxing night with friends and family. It is hard to separate events being based in food from the part that is about connecting with people. For those who are trying to prevent triggers to an internal battle with bulumia, binge eating, and anorexia, the holidays are certainly among those experiences to be vulnerable and to know that you are not alone.

Eating disorders often bring about an internal fracturing of mind, body and spirit. It may feel like you have been trapped in your mind by eating disorder thoughts that disconnect you from your body and spirit. Recovery involves reintegrating the mind, body, and spirit, creating an internal sense of wholeness. To embrace this holiday season with the intention of healing  Cooking for your Spirit    is a healthy guide that lends courage and strength when struggling, and gives a way to express gratitude when all is well.

Thanksgiving Blessings,

love, #krishna
