Goodbye Nutritiously Natasha. Hello Natasha Lipman!

Hello everyone and welcome to my brand new blog! 

I decided a while ago that I wanted to change my Instagram name away from Nutritiously Natasha and to my own name as I was feeling a bit restricted as to what I could write about and what people were expecting of me.

This new blog has been a labour of love and I have to say the biggest thank you to my amazing friend Lucy (one of the crazy genius brains behind The Dangerous Kitchen) for staying up with me, getting drunk on apple juice and helping make this site happen.

I’ve been writing quite a bit anyway about the direction I want to take my blog, and now it finally has a new home. To save repeating things I’ve already said, you can read here some of what you can expect from me.

What I will say is this whole sharing (some) of my life online has been a super interesting experience. I’m really passionate about sharing in an honest and open way the realities of living life with a chronic illness in your twenties. The highs, the lows, the food, the travel and everything in between. I hope I can shine a light to those who may not understand, and provide some solace to those who are going through similar things.

For those of you who were following me for the food, fear not! I’m teaming up with some of my favourite food bloggers to keep bringing you recipes, some eBooks and awesome foodie events. After all, nutrition plays a huge role in the management of my illnesses so it’s not going anywhere.

If you’d like to quickly navigate around the new site, you can find out more about me, check out some recipes, read my old blog posts (there are some gooduns in there, trust me!), nose through my FAQs and get in touch if you have any feedback.

I’d just like to say once again to everyone for all your wonderful words and support over the last year. I’ve had a particularly difficult few months, especially having to stop working again, but I’m now excited about growing my blog and working from home on developing it more and more. Being part of this wonderful online community has meant a lot to me, and I hope I can keep producing content that you all find helpful.

        It’s my pleasure. Btw, if you notice a sudden influx of people from Tumblr coming to have a look, I just recommended your blog to the spoonie community over there. :)

          Oh that’s so kind of you, thank you! Can you recommend some good spoonie communities on Tumblr/blogs? I need to start reading more!

            Sure. Tumblr is different and it’s easy to get bewildered by the lack of fences, boundaries, and formal communities. Like I did at first! :)

            Best thing to do is use the site internal search for #spoonie and take it from there. Anyone using that hashtag identifies as chronically ill.

            It’s a welcoming and supportive community. Many conditions. I’ve never seen anyone suggest that anyone else doesn’t qualify.

            I’ve read the spoons theory thingy and it was like someone had put into words what I’d been trying to say to my family and friends for years.

            Right?! My friends all know what it is – it’s kind of perfect.

    Congratulations! I am so happy for you. I love your new site and your new direction. I feel glad and blessed that you are sharing this very personal journey on how to manage your many chronic illnesses and you incorporate all the areas that people normally don’t think about such as body image and creating a ‘work space’ that is suitable for your physical limitations.

    congratualtions on your new site, it is lovely. I will spend some time having a nose about!

    I often advise clients to use their name as it allows it to flex and change as they do!

    I will update my RSS feed immediately!
