Temple University's student-run newspaper highlights how weight lifting can be an empowering tool for those recovering from an eating disorder
We are two generations rooted in one wholesome lifestyle. As a mother-daughter team, we are rooted in love, support, and trust. For years, the roots of our relationship have been challenged by a relentless eating disorder rooted in perfectionism, rigidity, and dishonesty. Our roots were brought back to life by our deep desire to give you an intimate look into our journey, from disordered thinking to recovery. On this blog you will find wholesome plant-based recipes, articles focused on balancing your lifestyle mind, body, and spirit, as well as true stories of re-discovering life's beauty. We hope to spark real conversations about eating disorders, a topic often buried but in need of unearthing. We do not make medical claims on our blog, nor do we claim to be experts on the subject of healing eating disorders. We find hope and purpose as a result of sharing our experiences.
Tracey is a registered nurse whose true passions are rooted in guiding people towards healthier, more fulfilled lives. Her daughter's long term journey with an eating disorder has led her to become a certified health coach, and in turn, empower other parents' weathering an eating disorder.
Emma is a current student at Temple University studying kinesiology and has been certified as a personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Her long-term battle with an eating disorder has directed her passions towards strengthening others' relationships between food and exercise. She hopes her story of recovery will inspire others to seek a life of abundance.
