Homemade deserts are always the best😊🙌...oatmeal rhubarb strawberry bar with rhubarb strawberry compote and vanilla ice cream...except for the vanilla ice cream there is no sugar added and everything is just sweetened with a little bit of honey...that makes it semi healthy, right?!?😉👌 #treatyourself
Hers: This is one of my all-time favorite summer dishes...Spinach Berry Salad with (freshly-squeezed) Lemon. What’s your favorite meal to eat in the heat?

These are soooooo good!!! If you are a fan of the chocolate covered bananas then you will LOVE these
When my stomach is upset I go back to eating foods low in #fodmaps
to reset and try again. Here’s one that works for me.
Foods that don’t aggravate or bloat my stomach. Here’s a pasta one:
Trader Joe’s brown rice and quinoa fusilli pasta 1/2-1 cup. I also like the red lentil pasta.
Chickpeas 1/2 cup-1 cup
A few Spears of asparagus 6 thin or 3 thick cup up.
Boil in water starting with pasta.
I big handful of arugula I like to add in the last minute.
Drain and put aside.
Options for a tablespoon of tomato paste and a table spoon of olive oil; or I like heirloom cherry tomatoes with a tablespoon of olive oil.
Other things you can add sea salt, parsley, basil, oregano, black pepper, and/or a squeeze of lemon juice. I also like some black olives in mine.

Foods to definitely avoid if bloated: garlic, onion, wheat/gluten, dairy, alcohol, vinegar, anything fermented. You should always consult with a nutritionist, registered dietian, functional medicine doctor, or any other doctor that can help guide you.
It just takes one decision to make a commitment to change. You just have to want it, and keep fighting after the excitement wears off. It’s not always easy, may be an up and down roller coaster, but it’s worth it.

Cauliflower gnocchi with kale cashew pesto, white beans and broccoli #vegan #traderjoes
When life (ie, trying to write a code of ethics paper) is too much, go buy yourself some sunflowers! 🌼💛
Couldn't have gotten a better parking spot on this rainy evening! #traderjoes
Dinner tonight! Grilled sirloin, green beans with mushrooms and salad! These two seasonings from @traderjoes
are amazing!!!!! 🙌🏻🍽🥩
Do you see the glass half full or completely empty? 🤷🏻♀️
These are good for when you have guests and want to serve something with your tea or coffee, but It’s not necessarily a tasty treat to keep in your house
If you like pretzels , then these are a must have! Taste great dipped in honey mustard.
The exterior of these two-bite sized, three-sided, savory pastries is made from a #phyllo
-type dough that bakes from frozen to a crisp, golden brown—the perfect flaky package for us to fill corner-to-corner with a curry-like, mildly spicy mixture of peas, carrots, potatoes, lentils, onions, and Indian spices.

Since jam is my jam.... I highly recommend this one. Daaaaaaaaaaannnngggg! #traderjoes
this was supposed to be a veggie pad thai with rice but i accidentally burnt my peanut sauce ☹️ better luck next time i guess 🙄 brown and wild rice mix underneath allllll my veggies! broc, mushrooms (my fav food of all time), white onion and asparagus cooked in paprika and garlic powder (weird combo i know but it’s tasty), added some coconut aminos and sesame seeds for some the asian flavor i was aiming for! ate this with a side of kimchi 🤪
Thank you, Trader Joe's amazing floral selection, for making the task of doing dishes (a tiny bit) happier.
Decent volume and definition for a refresh day. Refreshed with a water/conditioner mix (#TraderJoes
tea tree tingle) followed by some #curls
aloe and blueberry juice curl moisturizer
Just in time for summer bods #traderjoes
😬😍 anyone tried it?!
Asian style beet salad with a turmeric oregano dressing
Dressing <<< olive oil, rice vinegar, turmeric, oregano, ginger, lime juice, salt, and pepper
I’ve been loving brussel sprouts cooked in ghee with bacon lately 😍 I just let those few things cook & get crispy, and then right before serving add in some tomato & to with parmesan and usually throw a few fried eggs on top, but since I was out of eggs I whipped up this aioli my bff Morgan makes which is just mayo, worcestershire, & lemon pepper & used it for dipping 🔥
Yo-yo dieting? You could have metabolic damage. Here are a few changes you can make:
Fixing a damaged metabolism: Exercise
Lets start with exercise and how much time you should be designating to your work out regimen. Take a look at the time you are spending working out and taper it to about 3-5 days a week, maximum, with an hour at a time - as a maximum. Really, 30-45 minute workouts are more than enough. Keep in mind that resistance and weight training is the best way to enhance metabolism, as muscle burns more than fat - building muscle this way may be a good way to help repair your metabolism, as muscle content requires more calories than fat. Cardio workouts should be considered secondary and can be added in as part of the 3-4 day regimen, but a combination is best.
Fixing a damaged metabolism: Eating habits
The next step is to look at your caloric intake, and be prepared to increase this slowly. It is important to take this slow as to not gain weight back too rapidly, which will discourage you and may lead to another cycle of restricting your intake. Try to calculate how many calories you are taking in and add about 50-100 calories a week. The goal will be to have added about 500 calories after the course of a few weeks. As your body starts to be fed correctly, your body will be able to slowly lose weight once again. Keep it mind this takes some time and patience, but resist the temptation to over exercise and decrease your calories. The goal is to feed your body enough to allow your hormones to start to work efficiently once again. The thyroid hormones will increase, leptin levels will no longer think you are in starvation mode and muscle tissue will increase.
