2017; The Year of theSandwich

2017; The Year of theSandwich

I entered 2017 on a slice of hospital and will be ending 2017 on a slice of hospital. Two slices of slightly stale bread, with 365 layers of much of the same crap in between. I want to be optimistic. I want to look back on this year and say that I reached some goals, did some things to make myself proud, got stronger and healthier, perhaps learned to love myself a little bit more. It didn’t turn out to be that way, as, I guess, sometimes these things don’t. Don’t get me wrong, in some ways this year was great. In one way, it was the best of my life. On balance? Put it this way, 2018 already has a head start.

Am I the only person affected by an eating disorder that struggles this badly?

My story is not following my scripted arc; does this invalidate my experience?

Are positive stories with perfect outcomes the only ones worth sharing?

Thank you very Matcha!

Thank you very Matcha!

Ok, so first of all, what the hell is matcha?

Essentially, matcha is green tea, however, it’s not processed, prepared or drank in the way normal tea would be. Rather than the tea leaves being diced, put in a bag (or kept loose), stewed and removed from the water, matcha is kept whole and you consume the entire leaf. The leaf, or just the tips of the leaves in the highest quality products, are ground into an extremely fine powder with a consistency not too dissimilar to cacao powder. This powder is then mixed with water and consumed entirely. It can be drank cold, added to a bottle of water and shaken up or prepared with boiling water and drank as a hot tea drink
