Some Intuitive Eating Bloggers and Resources

Nutrition, HealthHaley HansenComment

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us and it most certainly is wonderful! But diet culture quickly sneaks in and tries to squash our enjoyment of it all by convincing us that the most important thing right now is managing weight, losing it, restricting our food intake, and/or “burning” off everything we’ve eaten. I’ve been hearing this chatter since Halloween and now that Christmas is around the corner, I figured it’s definitely time to provide some helpful resources for encouraging, self-love-promoting Intuitive Eating chatter, eh?

BLOGGERS:

Hummusapien -

I think I came across Alexis’s blog after seeing someone else post about her café, Alchemy, on Instagram and I was like, “THAT’S cool.” That was long before I built up the courage to search for any wisdom about healthy food relationships, but just something about her blog I found intriguing. And now, two years later, I’ve been reading her posts weekly and sometimes even going back to older posts and rereading (again and again and again). Her clever, witty writing combined with relatable stories captivate me and many others who read her blog regularly.

The Real Life RD -

Robyn. What a woman. My words will always underestimate how much your vulnerability, courage, and knowledge have impacted me. If there is anything that would make me want to become an RD, it’s how inspiring you are to me and probably a million other readers. Robyn takes time to dissect a lot of the food, diet, and wellness trends thrown around today and always reminds us to honor our bodies and believe that we are worth more than numbers (calories, pounds, etc.). She has been one of the single most influential factors in my understanding of Intuitive Eating.

Rachael Hartley Nutrition -

Rachael’s is a relatively new-to-me blog with pretty much everything related to food I explore on the internet all in one place: recipes and encouraging non-diet posts. I love how she incorporates both because doing so is such a great example of balance between the food we eat and how we feel about it. Like both Alexis and Robyn, Rachael is full of knowledge about nutrition, the human body, and how the two intersect.

RESOURCES (books & podcasts):

  1. Intuitive Eating - both the book to read and the workbook to fill out as you go along. Just do it. I highly recommend.

  2. Body Kindness - I haven’t read this book myself, but I’ve heard from so many others how helpful it is!

  3. Food Psych Podcast - Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, CDN interviews several individuals within the nutrition field who tell personal stories and share advice for anyone curious about Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size, and squashing diet culture.

  4. Nutrition Matters Podcast - Paige Smathers, RDN, CD talks with experts on all things mental health, nutrition, and body positivity to provide personal stories and helpful pieces of advice. Also, Paige’s and Christy’s voices are just really soothing to listen to and I mean that in the least weird way possible.
