Weekend Recap + Intuitive Eating Talk

Hi friends! First things first – a huge good luck shout out to any of you running the Boston Marathon today!

I wish I were there to cheer in person, but I’m excited to follow along virtually. 

While we’re talking about running, let’s start this post off with my weekend run, shall we?

I always really look forward to my weekend run dates with friends.

Yesterday’s run was with friends Diane and Paul, who I hadn’t seen in ages. I’ve missed running with them!

We started at Roosevelt Island and ran from there along the Potomac and then over the bridge into DC by the tidal basin/Jefferson Memorial.

It was really humid out – my first time wearing shorts to run this season! Probably should have gone the tank top route, too – oh well. 

I was proud because we ended up making it 5 miles! I’ve been doing mostly 3 or 4 milers lately and can’t remember the last time I made it 5… felt good to push it a little. 

I forgot to start my watch, so here is Diane’s:

When I got home I threw together a homemade variation of huevos rancheros for myself, Matt, and Riese: corn tortillas + guac + black beans + fried eggs + chili garlic hot sauce.

Riese had guac mixed with black beans and some bites of egg and tortilla from our plates.

She doesn’t like plain avocado, or plain black beans, but she loves guacamole, and black beans mixed into things!

Other highlights this weekend included burgers + fries on Friday night with some friends (unsurprisingly, Riese LOVES fries just like her mommy):

And last night Matt and I had a couple friends over to watch the season premiere of Game of Thrones (so good)!

The other highlight from the past few days was that on Friday morning I had the privilege of speaking at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics DC chapter’s annual meeting!

Fellow dietitians Heather Caplan, Kelly Jones, and I spoke about applying the intuitive eating philosophy (and weight inclusive care) to various areas of dietetics and nutrition work.

We each gave 20-ish minute presentations, then did some case studies and took questions at the end. 

I don’t believe there is a recording available, but I’ll check in case any of you are interested. intuitive eating presentation at DCMAND

Have a great day, and I’ll see you guys back here on Wednesday with a new recipe!

    Sounds like another great weekend! I’d love to see/listen to your presentation if it’s available. Intuitive eating has helped me personally so I’m always interested in the topic.

    I would also be interested in seeing the presentations, if they are available!

    Hello Anne! Long time reader here😊! This question is off- topic but I remember reading a long time ago that you shared you have Rosacea. Would you mind sharing what treatment medications you are using and also if Chlorophyll supplements would be helpful treatment😥? Any advice at all would be so appreciated❤

      Hi Melissa! I’m sorry to hear it sounds like you may be struggling with rosacea right now! I don’t take any medications or use anything special for mine… I hadn’t heard about the chlorophyll supplements, that’s interesting! I’ve found using oil-based natural moisturizers for my face and just using water to wash my face vs. any product seems to work best for me. You can read more about the products I use in this post:

    YES, please let us know if there is a recording available! As a nutrition student who believes firmly in IE/HAES, I am trying to do as much learning on my own as possible given that my program doesn’t really educate us about practicing dietetics through these lenses! :)

      I’m happy to send you our resources sheet (that we made available to attendees) with all our references/supporting research for the talk, if you want to email me!

    Congrats on the presentation and the run. And on the family fun, too. Sounds like a productive weekend. Would love to hear a recording of your presentation, if there is one.

    Such a fun run this weekend! Already looking forward to the next one – but NOT looking forward to the return of DC humidity LOL.

    While I’m not ready for the hot and humid summer, I’m more than ready to pack away my cold weather clothes and break out some shorts!!
