evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

    Planning a Spring Break getaway?
Chances are you will be making some of the best memories of you life and while part of you is super excited with the thought of a wild time on a beach with your besties, another part of you may be a little concerned with packing on the pounds or maybe getting yourself into great shape before you get there.
Drinking, late night eating and poor food choices = a recipe for disaster and trust me, you are not the only one feeling concerned about this.  Avoiding food or under eating is not the solution either (trust me on this, I’ve been there…it’s not pretty).
Luckily, Tosca Reno is sharing her great guidebook, Just the Rules with all of us in a free downloadable copy! Get yours here!
Print it out, put it in a folder and bring it with so that you and your friends have a fail-proof strategy to keep you feeling fabulous.
