Hello again fruity friends!
You may or may not have seen my post earlier this month (http://www.30bananasaday.com/forum/topics/my-hcrv-christmas-surpris...) but this is my Christmas update!
So I arrived home to this bounty!
Pictured: bananas, oranges, apples, pears, dates, romaine, little gem, spinach, tomatoes, baby vegetables, valeriana (lamb's lettuce), celery, portobello mushrooms and root vegetables for the rest of my family. And also unpictured: persimmons, mangos, pineapples, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, grapes, cucumbers, courgettes, peppers and lemons!
The past three days have been spent in pure bliss! My little cousin came to visit bringing cakes she had baked before catching sight of me eating a persimmon. She asked what it was and when I offered her one, she left the cake almost instantly and absolutely devoured the fruit! It made me so happy to share the love :)
And now for my Christmas dinner! Truly the best one in all of my seventeen (and a half) years. Just ask for recipes! I'm happy to share :) Followed by festive pumpkin apple pie!And finally, as promised, a photo of me last Christmas - life taken over by an eating disorder, trying to hide under baggy clothes, hair dye and lots of makeup. I can't even express to you the guilt I felt that day from eating and I spent Boxing Day restricting my food and running until I could barely stand. I know I'm smiling but there is no life behind my eyes; the following six months were torturous.And now for this year! Happy, healthy, free and present - fully appreciative and grateful for my family, wonderful gifts and festive feast. Completely makeup-free, my natural hair and a genuine grin :D Boxing Day spent doing yoga, watching films with my family, walking our lovely dogs in the great British rain (!) and eating more food!
And so all that's left for me to do is THANK YOU. Each and every one of you that is part of the 811 community I feel so proud to be a part of. You have quite literally saved my life and I adore you all! I hope you are enjoying beautiful Christmases with your loved ones and here's to a truly magical 2013! (toasted with a yummy banana-berry smoothie!)All my love and joy,
Meghann :) <3
Beautiful! All of it! :)
At first scroll, I was like "Um, so you got...tires?" and then the party started!
Look who's got the "glow" now!
Wow, santa must've had to recruit a few extra reindeer to haul all that fruity booty to your house :)
Great post! Amazing transformation. I can feel your energy from here :)
