We met here, years ago, on ig & then she flew to London from Spain & took my London workshop. (I'm there again 9/23 & you can sign up in my bio.) @bettinas_kitchen feed is eye candy and her recipes and skills are unparalleled! She's truly one of my greatest inspirations when it comes to healthy eating, loving and taking control of your own life.

To realise that the abundance of what nature has to offer us has endless creative options and that the sky is the only limit makes me so happy. I can only hope that some will be inspired back into their kitchens, encouraged to shop at local farmers markets, eat seasonally, incorporate plant based ingredients more and use intuitive imagination into creating meals for oneself, family and friends. There are no labels or rules, just good food. I hope my passion and creations inspire you to view food differently and restore your faith in natural, healthy eating, enough to take the time to make your food look as well as taste beautiful.

#Repost @girlpoweryouareenough ・・・ Hi again! @acaciabee here for the weekend! I want to talk for a second about yoga and inclusivity. I mentioned in my earlier posts that when I found yoga, I started to heal my body and my psyche around my body. But it actually wasn't that simple. When I first started it was really hard. I went to yoga classes and what I saw were going, beautiful, thin, able bodied, white women. Sure, there might have been one older lady in the corner (always in the corner!) but by and large, yoga can sometimes seem like it's the domain of the young and beautiful. And IT'S NOT. Yoga is a deep and complex practice and it is for EVERYONE. But there aren't always classes that are welcoming for people with atypical bodies. This is why I decided a couple of years ago to start teaching yoga, so I can create classes that are geared toward people who don't necessarily feel comfortable in a typical class. Given, this is not always the fault of the teacher. Ableism is built into the fabric of our society. Teachers aren't always instructed in the ways they will need to modify the practice for someone with a disability, or a bigger body, or someone who is older. And there are usually 30 other students to think about. It's not always simple. But yoga should be accessible and inviting to everyone, regardless of their age, size, or body type. I created the hashtag #yogaforbodyversatility because I am so passionate about making this practice welcoming to all bodies. No matter what your body looks like, no matter your age or size, no matter your ethnicity or your socioeconomic situation, yoga IS for YOU. (If you want it. If not, fuck it!) don't forget to follow @girlpoweryouareenough #yogaforbodyversatility #yogaforeveryone #yogaforhealing #girlpoweryouareenough

#Repost @girlpoweryouareenough ・・・ Happy Friday to @jenpastiloff's @girlpoweryouareenough community! @acaciabee here! I'll be posting to this account all weekend and talking about bodies, yoga, self esteem, confidence, self doubt, and whatever else comes up. BODY IMAGE PT. 1: I chose this picture to start out with because it represents a shift for me in how I felt about my body. And it's not the easiest one for me to post. Let me back up...I was born without my left hand. The cause was something called amniotic banding, and it's totally random. Not genetic and not caused by anything the mother does. It just happens. There's a whole lot to say about this and how it's affected my life. But for now I'll say that it gave me a lot of conflicted feelings about myself, my body, my beauty, when I was growing up. When I was young, like pre college, I didn't have a lot of hang ups about my body. I went to a small school and has great friends and I was outgoing and confident. I have my parents to thank for that in part because they didn't raise me go feel that I was different from anyone else. But when I went away to college I got really depressed. I was suddenly in a new place and around all new people and I was suddenly extremely self conscious of my body. I felt like everyone was staring at me all the time. I don't think anyone actually was, but it didn't matter. I didn't want to leave my room. When I had to for class I wore heavy jackets and maneuvered my body in certain ways to hide my left arm. This, by the way, got me into even more uncomfortable situations as I would get to know people in class and they wouldn't notice and then one day they would and it would shock them because they'd already created an image in their head of me with two hands and they would think I'd been in a recent accident. Anyway. Fast forward. I ended up moving home and finishing college in my hometown of Portland, OR. My body image got a little better because I was around my old friends and family and didn't feel so exposed. But I was still not totally comfortable. I didn't wear T Shirts or tank tops without a long sleeve in public. Then I started doing #yoga. To be continued.

Water Baby -- a powerful essay on miscarriage and survival by @hlbartels http://themanifeststation.net/2017/05/19/water-baby/

When I was wheeled back into my hospital room, the nurse handed me a pamphlet about miscarriage and a brochure with grief support groups in town.

Mary Tomaszewski-Helwig Omg this is beautiful, after having several miscarriages this is great!
Deb Leisinger Sitzmann ❤️🙏a beautiful well written note .. Hugs to all of you
Jaci Pearson Oh. My. Word. Such an incredibly, beautiful, sad story. 😥 What strength your daughter has, Cynthia. It says something about her character that when she was so in need, she was afraid to 'bother anyone' with her pain. What a selfless soul she ...
Cynthia Luse-mckeen I am a mom and think of myself as fairly enlightened...but this essay opened my eyes to several things I had not really grasped or considered before. No matter how long the pregnancy, the loss is so very real and shouldn't be diminished. Thank you ...
Leah Marie Barnett Thank you for describing miscarriage in such a real and tangible way. It's so hard to put into words how and why this loss is powerful and just as relevant as losing someone who has been born...for me, maybe even more so.

1 year ago. I'd just had the epidural & @healwithsounds came to give me a sound bath- Tibetan singing bowls on my belly as I was in labor. For hours she did this. Yes, I'm the #nobullshitmotherhood woo-ish/Jew-ish nut that gets an epidural AND has a sound healer. I'm a little of everything. I went into labor 2.5 weeks earlY. I was eating chocolate ganache in the kitchen in my underwear, about to go get a bikini wax because, lord I needed it, when my water broke. I've never told my birth story & I think I might in a longer post or blog but here are some tidbits: The guy who gave me the epidural was hot & he looked like a teenager. So did the nurse. I felt 100. I think they were teenagers? -charlie came out on a laugh. I laughed bc one of the nurses was like a comedienne (I think I even asked her to be my friend or for her #) and charlie came flying out when I laughed. When they put him on my chest I felt afraid. Not love at first sight. I asked, hand to god, "Is something wrong with him? Is he supposed to look like that?" I was scared. I heard you get amazing cookies at Cedars Sinai after you give birth but I never did & I tried and they never brought them & I'm still pissed. The 1st thing I ate was an enchilada from the hospital & it was fucking delicious. I had bronchitis & every time I coughed I thought my uterus would fall out or my stitches would bust. It was worse than labor. Do whatever you want. Have your baby in the tub or in your bed or in the hospital- whatever! For me- I'd totes do the epidural again. And the singing bowls! The whole Enchilada! Get it?!Enchilada? After I had that ectopic I was clear I never wanted to feel that pain. Anyway- 1 year ago I was in this weirdly fancy hospital room w a view of LA & I was all numb from the epidural & high from the bowls & little dude was hours from entering the world. I swear- and here's the woo-ish part of me- that the singing bowls affected him profoundly. His disposition. Also that he came out on a laugh. All I'm saying is: what the fuck a year has flown, and also: do it your way. Do whatever you want to do. Don't let anyone tell you differently or shame you. #realmotherfuckinglife

Hiiiii! I haven't done a #realmotherfuckinglife post in a bit so I thought "what better time?" My friend who has a gazillion ig followers was just telling me how hard it is to grow organically now. She said she just posts whatever time she wants and how often & doesn't worry about likes/comments. Well... um, that's what I've always done so guess what? I'm not changing. Nanny nanny boo boo. Maybe that's why I don't have a gazillion followers? Because I just post my heart & pay no heed to "algorithms" or any kind of shoulds. So... I'll keep on doing what I do. My son turns 1 tomorrow. Wtf??? This is how most of our days go. He wants to nurse all day long. We sit in my apt amidst all the mess & wonder when I'll ever get work done again. Then he nurses more. Then maybe we nap. I eat all day long maybe because he does? Maybe bc I'm home all day? Maybe bc I still don't know how to listen to my body? 😂😂😂 Do I wish I had a great big house? Nah, but another bedroom would be nice & a little yard or patio where I could sip wine & watch the sun go down. Maybe a little more light. But otherwise nah, we're good. You don't need much, really. Don't trick yourself into believing otherwise. Don't let Instagram tell you otherwise. How are you guys doing? What new and real in your #realmotherfuckinglife?

Wouldn't you know that I posted this 1 year ago to the minute & just 3 hours later my water broke. 👇 I snapped this on a sunset walk last night with my husband. I have to tell you, I had big plans for this pregnancy. I was going to use the time I had, and I've had tons of time, to write and work on my book and create an online course and really get shit done. What I did: none of that. I enjoyed my friends. I ate my face off. I gained an F ton of weight. I watched one bazillion shows. I slept (when I could.) I said no a lot. I said yes sometimes- when I felt like it. I got my apt ready for the baby. I enjoyed every aspect of being pregnant, for the most part. Naturally, as it's nearing to a close- I'm going, "oh my gawd, I didn't get shit done and now the baby will be here and I'll have no time and oh my gawd I'll never have a book out and I'll never sleep again and and and." But just a little. I am oddly and happily at peace. I'm not beating myself up. I love my body right now. I DGAF about the "shoulds." I want this feeling to last. For all of us. There's so much in life that matters. And so much that doesn't. I'm sure I'll get back on track soon. Or I won't. Whatever. I am too old and too wise and too fuckless to try and be perfect or compete or feel not enough or feel like life's a race. It isn't. It's not a race. Enjoy it while you can. Go on a walk. Do what you want. F the shoulds. You're a godamn miracle. Remember that. #nobullshitmotherhood #realmotherfuckinglife

More thoughts on the bullshit around Mother's Day. I know how hard it is for some. Like I said in my post a few back: I see you. Sharing my friend's email w permission: "I picked up my zipcar to go see my mama for Mother's Day this am: Parking Garage Attendant: "Are you a mom?" Me: "Nope" Attendant: "Oh, I'm sorry. Then I can't give you one of these roses. The company said I had to ask each woman. I can only give them to women who are mothers. Me: "Ok" *starts crying* MOMENTS LATER, FROM THE CAR, BY PHONE Me: "Excuse me. Are you the nice gentleman who just gave me my car but couldn't give me a rose?" Attendant: "Yes, that is me." Me: "Well, I just wanted to say that I do not have children, but I am an AMAZING AUNTIE and I CARE FOR PEOPLE IN A MOTHERLY WAY ALL THE TIME. So I am going to be back around 8pm tonight and I am going to take a rose because I am amazing and I deserve one." Attendant: "Yes, yes, of course. I understand. I am sorry, the company made me ask. I hear you. Yes, please that would be fine with me". Yep. I called to fight back to a garage attendant who was just doing his job. Because he triggered my insecurities about not having children on Mother's day. And every day. If the garage attendant hadn't asked "Are you a mom?" but instead just handed me the rose and said "Happy Mother's Day", I would have gotten upset at that too. "Why does he assume I have children?" I would have thought. And then the same tears would have come. He was in a no-win situation. It's up to ME to shape my reactions in these moments. To know that not every comment is a judgement of my life choices or a reflection of someone's insensitivity. People just say stuff. Often with the best intentions. Which brings me back to the same work: Less reactivity, more breath, more gratitude, more stability. Wash, rinse, repeat. " #nobullshitmotherhood #realmotherfuckinglife

Diana Alanis I don't get why we live in a state of Being defensive all the time. Maybe because I was raised in a bubble, I saw things going bad and of course I behave so I don't get punish for being bad. I am wrong here because now I am suffering a lot, ...

Joy Judy Masline Zing. Ping. Felt it. I experience this same feeling on M's day. No I don't have children of my own, but I love my nieces and nephew with an intensity that is heartfelt and is "motherly" in every sense of the word. To be left out and ...
