Friend Of The Week – The Inspired Eater


Happy Friendship Friday dear friends! Ever visit someone’s blog and immediately feel like you’ve met a kindred spirit? Well, it happened to me this week, which is why I’m excited to introduce you to Wendy, the delightful blogger behind The Inspired Eater. As you read about the “Jedi mind tricks” Wendy used to lose 55 pounds after the birth of her boys (and how she’s maintained that weight loss for the past 15 years), chances are you’ll want to claim her for your new BFF as well!

Brownies For Breakfast

Wendy tagline says “losing and maintaining weight loss after 50 is an extreme sport”. This should give you a sense of the humorous yet helpful perspective from which she writes! You’ll find plenty of fun, practical tips and surprises at The Inspired Eater. For instance, who would expect to read about Brownies For Breakfast on a blog about weight loss? I wouldn’t (but, I confess, I made a mad dash to that one)!

Cultivate Good Habits

How I Avoided Stress Eating When Life Turned Scary contains great tips on how to make the shift from stress eating to healthy habits. Leave a comment if you tend to eat more when you’re feeling stressed and under duress!


There are many things I like about Wendy and her blog but perhaps what appeals to me most is how she helps us infuse self-care into our healthy eating routines. Wendy’s article Why Pretty Matters provides a perfect example of this!

Making new friends and deepening existing relationships is a joy. Be sure to visit Wendy this week, explore her blog, leave her some comment love, and congratulate her for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy!
