Super Chunky Vegetable Sauce

Laura wrote in a while back, "We’re moving in two weeks, and we’re on a mission to use up what we have, without buying more, so that we won’t have to move food. This makes it a challenge sometimes to come up with a healthy meal, because you end up with a lot of odds and ends that don’t really go together. Today I put together the rest of our vegetables into a chunky healthy sauce, full of onions, garlic, zucchini, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes. It was colorful, flavorful, healthy, and oh so good served over a bit of Israeli couscous."

Looks good ... sometimes those odds and ends meals are the best!

Your food is great, but the name of your blog is disturbing!
Being "healthy" and being "thin" are not the same thing!
There is enough pressure on women (and everyone) to think about weight and appearances all the time; you can offer great recipes without the harmful slogan!
You're encouraging eating disorders and other harmful practices.
Please change the name of your blog. Help everyone out in the fight against eating disorders and body image problems.
And remember that your community WILL be here to support you if you need or are ready to ask for help.

I never said that thin equals healthy. In fact, if you read my user info, right on the front page of my blog, you'll see that I outright state that fact...

"I used to weigh a whole lot, but now I don't. This is about my journey to get healthy and to stay healthy while still enjoying food. This isn't a weight loss blog or a diet blog. It's not about being skinny; it's about being healthy. This is how I learned to nourish my body instead of just feeding it."

It's not about being skinny; it's about being healthy. I don't need any help. I did it the correct way in the first place, with a doctor, a dietition, and a personal trainer. I'm not promoting eating disorders; I'm simply stating a fact. I cook, and I'm a former fat girl.

Ignore Elisa, I only found this blog a couple of months ago because I was looking to see if there was an opposite of "This is Why You're Fat" and it's awesome.

Count me in as another vegan who used to be fat (I was obese when I was 18). Now a few years later, I'm down to normal weight through eating food much like the stuff you post here.

I don't think your site encourages eating disorders at all. Anyone who tried to lose weight following your recipes would be extremely healthy.

And you can't veto all discussion of weight loss - some people do need to lose weight and get healthy (I know I did).

Aren't there enough sites that actually do promote eating disorders for people to complain about anyway?

So ignore any naysayers and keep it up :)
