What I ate in the month December

I find it always so strange to look back at my own food. It is something that has become so strange to me, because it’s just food. It is tasty and I move on. I hope for the peeps who are reading this and do struggle with being to fixated on their food, that this can be you to someday :).

So this was my take out moment, that thanks to miss Rona became a more frequent thing in 2020. There’s some Chinese in these bags. I am very closely friends with a fam who has a Chinese restaurant.
In this photo I was explaining to my mom why having a drink with some sweetener is not a bad thing when your cholesterol levels are high. I can drink both without having any mixed feelings. Thank god!
My new love is chocolate spread and I had a little Serrano, but I am not a big fan of salty things. Yes, I have no plate. I am hella lazy with that, but somehow I can wipe the table with alcohol wipes….
My new year food with the fam, thanks to my boss <3.
When there are tomatoes involved, you can bet that I was lazy and did not want to cook. Just like in this pic.
This was for little Dino. He loves his Brussel sprouts!
The addiction is real…
The base
The end product. I just love a salad with somethin crispy in it! This fish a fish schnitzel.
This was the first time for me eating a Big Mac. I was in Belgium when I did.
And it get’s a D or a 4. It was dry and I just cannot understand the hype for a second..
This is my favo. I mostly come to Mcdonalds for the ice cream XD.
I bought chocolates for my friend her birthday, but I needed one to finish my meal whaha oeps..
My regular health check. I always eat at least two pieces of fruit a day and some veggies to keep my health on track.
My bestie made bananabread and I was out of food
That was my first proteinshake in six months
One of my other addictions..
This actually was the base for the wine I was drinking afterwards XD
And this one was nice! Kinda sweet & dry with a hint of melon
Quick meals are my favorite
I just snack on chickpeas from a can. Am I the only one?
Popcorn for me, but also for him 😉
I ate fries at least three times a month. This is however from the airfryer.
One of my favorite peeps gave me this card :’). I adore her mindset and really wish that she get’s all what she wishes for.
My boss made me and my friend thanksgiving dinner. It is do damn cute :’). He does not even celebrate the birth of Jesus. What makes this extra special. It shows that if we care for each other everything is possible.
random snack
My sis is in the USA and misses Surinam food. So she makes some. Good effort ineed!

Me taking out food again haha. Guys I hoped you got some inspo from this or it calmed you down. I ate it all and am still the same. So, no worries!

If you think therapy will have all the answers…

Hello readers,

Therapy is something a lot of people with an eating disorder either fear, look up to or do not take serious at all. For all of those people this article could be helpful. I have some sentences that I will put into this article from a lady I spoke to on Instagram. That went crazy quick and I am thankful that people read these!

What’s in it for you?

Depending on how you look at it. It either is very helpful or not at all. ‘When I first went to therapy, they (GP and dietitian) told me that talking about it would help and speed up the proces’. Therapy and talking about your thoughts should help and  yes it’s very nerve wrecking to talk about all the dark thoughts going on in your head, but you will feel relieved. It does depends how you ‘walk into therapy’. A lot of women and men with an eating disorder are often dishonest about either their foodintake or on how hard they work on the assignments they get from the therapist.

And I get that. There is so much going on and you know deep down it’s not oke what you are doing to yourself. The funny thing is, saying it out loud is actually the first steps to recovery. The shame you feel from talking about it is recovery. Having insight in these thoughts is recovery.

I always thought and I still believe; that working without judgement with a person suffering from an eating disorder is key. But sometimes it helps to be a bit judgy, because some people do get insight that the behavior is not something you should be proud of or is even harmful.

Your mindset stepping into therapy.

Wauw! The amount of people who walk into therapy not taking it serious or the amount of people who thinks it’s gonna ‘cure’ them is so big. And you know what, both are wrong. I highly advice you to go there with an open mind and blank thoughts.

Does this person really have the answers?

Well no, not one single helper in your journey will have all the answers. They do however have tips & tricks and I highly advice you to listen to them and use them in everyday life. How sooner you say yes to recovery, how sooner this will ends.

Much love,

Queeny
