(Late) Weekend Reminder

Weekend Reading | The Full Helping

Hi all. Didn’t get around to posting weekend reading yesterday. I found out in the morning that someone close to my mom and me had passed away unexpectedly. I’ve been focusing on supporting my mother however I can.

For today, I’m offering you the reminder that I’ve given to myself: take care of yourselves and your loved ones, focus on the present, and find gratitude where you can. I’ll be back later this week.

  1. I’m sorry for the lots of your mom’s friend. My heart goes out to the two of you,

  2. Hi Gena,

    Condolences to you and your mother during this healing time for her. XXX

  3. So sorry to hear of your loss. My best to your mom.
    If you don’t post, I just re-read old posts with a cozy cup of tea. There’s usually some nugget I missed or didn’t fully absorb, and finding recipes again is like seeing old friends.

Happy Sunday, and to those who are celebrating Mother’s Day, a lovely afternoon. On Thursday morning, when I arrived at my regular yoga class, a good friend commented on the slouchy pants I was wearing. “Love them!” he said. “Not your usual look.” (The usual look is leggings.) Without skipping a beat, I replied, “yeah, I’m feeling lousy about my body today, so not in the mood for spandex.” The thing is, I offered this reply lightly, with a smile. I wasn’t registering…

Happy July 4th, everyone! I hope you have a celebratory day, filled with good company and good food. Steven and I are having a low key holiday at home this year. The avenues are quiet, the cars have all been driven away, and the city feels uncharacteristically spacious. Part of what I love about New York is its grittiness and bustle and noise, but when the city is empty over these long summer weekends I can admire it in a different way, peeking…

Happy Saturday! And thank you for all of the wonderfully supportive comments about the name change of this site.

Good morning, all, and happy Saturday to you. After what feels like a really long week, I’m happy to enjoying a morning at home, catching up on articles and recipes, even if I’ll soon be cracking the books open to prepare for my final exams. I’ve got my human development exam on Tuesday, which is actually fun to prepare for, as this particular chunk of material is fascinating to me. It includes adolescent nutrient needs and deficiencies, inborn errors of metabolism, food allergies…
