[Not sure what I’m talking about? Get all the details hereand consider joining yourself!]
But first up, I am excited to announce this month’s Member of the Month!
August’s Member Spotlight is Abbey of Abbey’s Kitchen!
Member of the Month: August 2018
Name: Abbey Sharp
Blog: Abbey’s Kitchen
Years Blogging: over 10 years
Tell us a little bit about your blog and why you started:
Abbey’s Kitchen is really a resource on healthy eating, nutrition myth busting, and now mom life as I explore my own health and wellness related questions as it pertains to pregnancy, postpartum life and motherhood. I started blogging because I was just really interested and excited about food, and wanted to share some of my food escapades with the masses. I actually started as a restaurant review site but obviously my brand was evolved significantly since then. Today, I am blogging because I find people are bombarded with so much confusing and contradictory information related to what to eat. My goal is to make sure I’m sharing accessible real world information that people can make sense of.
What’s a fun fact about yourself or your blog that the other members in the group may not know yet?
I have my first cookbook coming out December 4th called The Mindful Glow Cookbook (you can read up on it and preorder here). This book was a total labour of love, but it features some of the best recipes I’ve ever developed and a how-to on healing your relationship with food. It’s about eating well without dieting – something I’m really passionate about. In the book, I talk a lot about my past experience with orthorexia, a surprisingly common eating disorder that I was thankfully able to overcome. The reality is, I can tell you with absolute certainty that a lot of people (particularly women) that we all know are likely struggling from some form of disordered eating (even if it’s not diagnosed). Letting go of diet culture and committing to mindful eating was the best thing I ever did for my health and happiness.
