In about a week or so I’ll be starting a 30 day clean eating challenge. I’ve been a bit overwhelmed and tired the last few weeks and it’s time to de-stress, get my energy levels up, and return my body to an alkaline state. Oh, and losing a few extra pounds won’t hurt. Bring on the berries 🍓
Sometimes the simpler the better!.... 😁 👍
I wanted a simple fresh salad to go along with our meal, and it couldn’t be anymore perfect than this! Full of color....😍 🌈 .
**Made with baby greens, watermelon radishes, heirloom tomatoes, vidalia onions, microgreens, cucumbers that are hidden underneath everything 🤨 and edible flowers 🌸😃.....finally found them in Whole Foods 😍
**Dressing,...I mixed avocado oil, balsamic vinegar, pomegranate juice, Himalayan salt and garlic. Mix together in a mason jar and voila!!! Experimenting with pomegranate juice and it wasn’t bad at all....very pleased with the flavor......maybe next time I’ll add a bit more juice! 😋
Have a great night!! 😌🙏

This nutrition packed dessert is absolutely scrumptious!! For the cream:
I whipped up some full fat coconut milk with some frozen raspberries.
I used equal parts Raw organic almonds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds and dried coconut flakes with a dash of cinnamon. I pulsed it in the blender until it reached a grain like consistency (about 1 minute) poured into a bowl and added just enough monkfruit syrup to help it bind.
Check out these awesome nutritional benefits!
Flaxseeds are an excellent source of dietary fiber. They contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, the latter of which contributes to digestive health. Two tablespoons of ground flaxseed provide 16% of your recommended daily intake (RDI) of fiber for the whole day.
Pumpkin seeds can provide you with a substantial quantity of healthy fats, magnesium and zinc.
Because of this, pumpkin seeds have been associated with several health benefits including improved heart health, prostate health and protection against certain cancers.
Almonds contain riboflavin and L-Carnitine. Both of these nutrients are important when it comes to the health of the brain.
Dried coconut contains a wide range of minerals that are easy for your body to absorb and process. Therefore, including it in your diet will prevent mineral deficiency and reduce the risk of many serious diseases, such as arthritis and osteoporosis.
I’ve been on a high fat /low carb diet for 3 months. My pain is completely gone, I am fat adapted, my energy is steady throughout the day + my strength is back in my workouts
From the beginning my goal has been to stay high fat/low carb but transition away from counting macros or being on any specific eating schedule. If you have seen my story over the last few weeks, you know I haven’t been doing intermittent fasting everyday. I stopped paying attention to “eating times” + ate when I was hungry. Sometimes it’s at 7am after my workout, sometimes it’s at 2pm!
This week I’ve been loosely tracking macros. I basically put everything in at the end of the day to see how I did. Obviously you won’t hit a perfect split everyday without tracking, but that is not important to me. I’m within a good range of my macro goal + I know what foods make me feel the best. 🥑🥗🍳🥦🥕🥩 I’m finally starting to feel balanced + healthy!
Do you prefer to cook or bake? 🙋🏼♀️ I’m a much better cook than baker and would rather someone bake FOR me or follow someone else’s recipe. So last weekend I made these black bean brownie muffins from @ambitiouskitchen
and they were delicious!! And I took my own pictures just for fun...because that’s what I really enjoy anyway. 🤷🏼♀️ Ya know, besides eating. 😊 get her recipe from the link in my profile — https://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/gluten-free-flourless-black-bean-brownie-muffins/
Throw Back Thursday!!!
Okay, I’ll admit... no amount of 80’s style clothing is going to make me look like a teenager again. 😂😂😂 I wish.
But I (the high school athlete), was never this fit in high school! I don’t FEEL my age.
Tonight is an 80s throwback event (hence the outfit), and in just a few more weeks we’ll be attending my 20 year high school reunion! 😬😬😬 20 years since that girl who had no clue what was possible in this life!
What’s the best part of life 20 years later? The fact that I get to make such a huge impact in women’s lives.
What’s the second best part? It’s my job to take amazing care of myself first. 💕💕💕
Good Fats ✔️
Satisfaction ✔️ Minimal effort ✔️
Made by me to be enjoyed by me. No-one else is going to look after you as good as this, and if you do have someone in your life that'll throw you up a plate like this they are a keeper!! Spending time buying good food, preparing it, cooking it and appreciating it before you eat all help towards avoiding emotional overeating of the wrong types of food. .
If your TTC or pregnant you will soon have another being to nourish and care for so start with yourself. .

Life just feels so easy breezy when the humidity is turned down low. 🤸🤸🤸. I do love being able to use the porch as my office, and today's one of those days (though I can't sit still). And why is it that getting those 8 glasses of water in daily feels like a full-time job? Does anybody else's toes and neck shrivel up when you're dehydrated?? 🤔. Obviously, no deep thinking taking.place today. 😁🌼
Preparing a well balanced meal doesn’t need to be time consuming!
Prepped hard boiled eggs and roasted sweet potatoes ahead of time to throw together this super easy and tasty breakfast 🍳
All I had to do was mash some avocado, roast tomatoes, top with seasoning, AND DONE 🍅
“So what is the most effective way to protect your skin? In an ‘ideal’ scenario you are armed with sun protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and sunscreen, but since ‘ideal” isn’t always realistic make clothing your top priority.” - @drkeirabarr
The amount of sun protection that clothing that provides is determined by the tightness of weave or knit, type of fiber, thickness or density of material and color.
- Tighter the knit the less UVR getting through (think wool or denim)
- Matte fabrics absorb UVR (think linen)
- Heavier & thicker fabric will absorb more UVR
- Shiny semi-synthetic fabrics (think rayon) reflect more UVR - Darker or more intense colored clothing like red absorbing more UVR than pastel colors
How to protect yourself outdoors: Cover up as much of your exposed skin with loose fitting, light weight, tightly woven fabrics in darker colors. Find UPF rated clothing with UPF 30-50 to provide you with the best protection and enjoy the rest of summer

Dinner tonight 🍅
Not really #lowfodmap
but couldn’t be bothered cooking... I’m only dreaming of💤
Who here struggles?
I think it’s safe to say we all do. This time last year I was struggling again. I had achieved beyond my goals for fitness and weight loss and didn’t know how to transition from that. If I wasn’t in weight loss mode, then what mode was I in?
I struggled through periods of time when I would eat well for meals, but add in way too much crap that would leave me feeling awful. And I even yo-yo’d a bit. I never gained more than 7-8 pounds, so it didn’t really show.
When I got done with 80DO, I struggled HARD. I had been so strict during the program, and was going through an emotional time, that I fell pretty hard and have really struggled with getting and staying back on track with balanced and healthy eating.
I was reading this book last night and here it was. Chapter 17. Everything I believe about health and fitness summed up in Rachel’s book. And this one quote is exactly the words to describe what has started a real and lasting change in me.
The only thing I need to be concerned with on this journey is the care and consideration I put into my body.
This evening I've been kind of a bad mom. I'm very exhausted after a long and nervous working day. So tired, that I even couldn't reach the grocery store to refil my stocks. As a result we had a defrosted sous-vide tuna and a cherry tomatoe salad. As for me, i spoiled myself with local pale ale craft beer. @malkabeer

Tired of eating the same oatmeal every day? Try out this easy high protien buckwheat porridge recipe, naturally sweetened with chopped dates!!
Buckwheat packs about 20 g of protein per cup and is a great source of B-vitamins as well as minerals such as copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc. Try topping your porridge with flax, hemp, and chia seeds to get your daily dose of omega 3 essential fatty acids. Add fresh fruits as a natural sweetener and antioxidant boost. Finally top it off with cinnamon to aid blood sugar regulation.
You can cook a large batch of this porridge and store it in the fridge for several days, but make sure to add extra liquid as it will thicken up a lot after cooling. Let us know what your favorite recipes are and what dishes you would like to see next!
Are you asking if I made this? YES, and the best part is that anyone can do it (see below how). For a few weeks now I've been craving salmon steak, yeah a big one. and here is the result of my cravings, really if it wasn't because my husband is at home. I've eaten his piece too.
Cajun baked salmon (cajun seasoning I made my own with not salt) I mixed the seasoning with a little olive oil and salt, then used a silicon brush to marinate the salmon, pre-heat the oven at 350F used a grill pan, when the oven was ready I baked it until the skin was crispy.
For the corn salad, corn (grilled or from a can) cherry tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, chile lime from trader joes, olive oil and lemon juice. mix everything and you are done.
Deets: put the salmon on top the baby arugula, on the other side put the corn salad, sprinkle the salad with red pepper flakes and ready for the pic.
Updating.. My daughter scores are amazing, she is perfectly normal for her age. Such a great relive.

I decided the Whole30 wasn’t for me. I didn’t “quit” or “give up” or think it was “too hard” (it’s important to make that distinction because not following through with something because your body is telling you STOP does NOT make you a quitter! Remember that!) You see, on the Whole30, major food groups are eliminated, like dairy, grains, and legumes, AKA all of the things that my body LOVES. I perform extremely well on a high amount of carbs that I get from whole grain sources made with nothing but goodness. Once eliminated, I was bound to potatoes and vegetables to fuel my body, which isn’t necessarily baaaad and may work for some people, but my body WAS NOT HAVING IT. By day 3, I was exhausted, wasn’t sleeping well, had brain fog and was not recovering as well as I normally do from my workouts. I learned that my body needs these foods, and the thought “I can’t have this, I can’t have that” is so unhealthy. A great balance of foods is all you need. Eat well. Fuel your body. Diets and programs are just not sustainable. I’m not saying the Whole30 isn’t good for some people or that it doesn’t teach some good habits, but it just wasn’t for me, and I put aside my competitive side and my ego and decided what was best for my body and for me!
And on the whole30, I couldn’t have wonderful things like this smoothie bowl. OHMYYUUUM.
1 c unsweetened almond milk, plus more for blending
1/2 c oats
1/2 c frozen blueberries
1/2 c steamed then frozen cauliflower (trust me, it creates such a creamy texture and you can’t taste it! Plus you get in some veggies)
1/2 banana, frozen
1 scoop @pescience
2 pasteurized egg whites
Cinnamon & vanilla
Top with healthy fats like almond butter, coconut shreds, and seeds!

Mediocre at best. Some good information but a little short sighted. We're all so different that anything that promotes a dogmatic approach to nutrition in my opinion is part of the problem. I would skip this one if I we're you but to each his own. For me yhe only thing i took away from this: not all vegetable are healthy but my gut already knew this. #foodforhealth #healthyliving #youngforever
How a Mediterranean diet could reduce bone loss in osteoporosis
Date: July 11, 2018
Source: University of East Anglia
Eating a Mediterranean-type diet could reduce bone loss in people with osteoporosis -- according to new research. New findings show that sticking to a diet rich in fruit, vegetables, nuts, unrefined cereals, olive oil, and fish can reduce hip bone loss within just 12 months.
UK study lead Prof Susan Fairweather-Tait, from UEA's Norwich Medical School, said: "This is a particularly sensitive area for osteoporosis as loss of bone in the femoral neck is often the cause of hip fracture, which is common in elderly people with osteoporosis. "Bone takes a long time to form, so the 12-month trial, although one of the longest to date, was still a relatively short time frame to show an impact. So the fact we were able to see a marked difference between the groups even in just this one area is significant." "A Mediterranean diet is already proven to have other health benefits, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and cancer," said Prof Fairweather-Tait. "So there's no downside to adopting such a diet, whether you have osteoporosis or not." 1. I Strongly feel diet rich in local and seasonal fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, lentils, beans, seeds, cold pressed oil and ghee are what we should be eating for optimal health.
2. We should choose oil of our region in India so choose any oil like mustard, sesame, peanut, coconut etc but make sure on the packaging it is written cold pressed oil and not refined oil.
3. Low in grain flour based snacks, sugar-sweetened foods and drinks, Red and processed meats and refined oil. #health #healthfood #traditionalfood #foodforhealth #foodforweightloss #fitness #healthyliving #naturalfood #loseweight #weightlossfood #realfood #obesity #healthyfats #lifestyle #mentalhealth #slimmingworld #foodismedicine #healthyeating
As we're approaching the end of the week your heathy start may be waning, so here's some info from @thefitnesschef_
to help you going too crazy if you dive into the biscuit tin 😊
• • • • •
There are definitely more nutritious snacking options than this assortment of biscuits. But there’s a reason you’ve heard of all of these... That reason is simply that people enjoy eating them. Furthermore, people will eat them. Therefore, instead of assuming biscuits are evil, understand them for what they are - non optimal, unbalanced pieces of food which taste good. -
It is also easy to see why consumption of multiple biscuits in a short period of time can quickly accumulate to a high calorie figure. It this kind of awareness which is could help shape an overall calorie goal. For example; consuming 6 chocolate digestives in one day (easily done), adds up to 510 calories. A hefty chunk of your daily calories. -
That said, understand that consumption in moderation is acceptable. Understand that no food is good or bad if you have a balanced diet. And finally, understand that whilst there are more nutritious snacking options such as fruit, or nuts, biscuits can absolutely be an option now and again. Especially if you already obtain sufficient intake of nutrients, calorie balance and awareness across the rest of your diet 🍪🙂. -
Which one is your favourite??? -

Many people will look at entertainment, gadgets, things and stuff then complain that they are too busy, tired, stressed and sick to live life fully. Offer a health solution or advice and they will not only fail to listen they will fail to make their health a priority because they can’t afford it. Health is an investment. Invest wisely in natural products and healthy living. Make you a priority.
Getting out of the house this morning was SO HARD! All I jad time to do was pack some old fashion oats, a banana, throw a lil maple syrup in a container, and some sliced almonds. Thank God the J-O-B has scolding hot water and a microwave.
Stopping judging yourself for past indiscretions and turn that setback into a massive comeback! #healthyisthenewblack
