before i’m off to bed i just quickly wanted to share this bruschetta beauty with you🍅 i tried it for the first time today and was not disappointed at all!😯 it tasted quite good actually but i don’t need it in my regular day to day diet😄 do you know that feeling? anyways, bruschetta is such an easy dish any restaurant should be able to serve you in a vegan way! so if you’re out with friends/family in a non-vegan restaurant and the menu doesn’t speak to out, ask for bruschetta!😇
Enjoying my dairy-free dinner on the go tonight!
My shake is made with almond milk and loaded with 20 grams of plant-based protein. For flavor and a micronutrient boost, strawberries and beets that are added for a shake full of folate, potassium, fiber, vitamin C, iron, and B vitamins. Both strawberries and beets have high levels of antioxidants, have anti inflammatory properties and have a low glycemic load. There is also some flax seed to get in my healthy fats. 💪🏼 There is no magic pill or supplement that can overpower the garbage you put in your body. Keeping it simple, easy and tasty is the key to fine tuning your healthy diet and staying on track with your fitness journey and getting your desired results.

❓What is glyphosate, how toxic is it, and how can you avoid it? ☠️Glyphosate is found in the worlds most popular herbicide- “Roundup”. It also acts as a pesticide/antibiotic. It is everywhere in the food and water supply. ⛔️List of some of the known health effects of glyphosate:
•Endocrine disrupting •Cellular toxicity
•Causes birth defects •Promotes an autoimmune response
•Kills healthy gut bacteria
•Teratogenic effect (disrupts the development of an embryo or fetus)
•Tumorigenic effect (cancer-causing)
•Estrogenic effect (enhances the growth of certain types of tumors cells)
•Hepatorenal effect (can cause liver and kidney failure) 🔹It is estimated that currently 93% of the American population tests positive for high levels of glyphosate in urine samples. 🔹Monsanto, the company that patented “Roundup”, brings in approximately $5 billion in annual revenue related to glyphosate, and has been shown to have undue influence over the federal government regarding its toxicity. 🔹Glyphosate is found in ALL GMO products, as well as: honey, sugar, wine, oats, soy, corn, canola oil, oatmeal, wheat, breads, cereals, rice, crackers (basically all conventionally-grown grain products), legumes, beans, peas. 🌿 It is best to buy organic or avoid these products. Try to buy “100% organic” vs “organic” (only required to be 95% organic). 🔹Please educate yourselves and your family/friends on this issue and help make the world a healthier place 💚🌎 #bsmarthealth #health #healthyeating #healthyliving #nutrition #dietitian #nutritionist #healthyfood #healthysnacks #wellness #wellnesslife #dietitianapproved #cleaneating #cleaneats #cleaneatingrecipes #green #greenliving #toxinfree #nutritioncounselling
approved lunch at the office today 🥗 .
Packed with fiber + protein + healthy fats! Salad from with green leaf lettuce, spring mix, carrots, tomatoes, roasted cauliflower + eggplant, cucumber, avocado, salmon, and balsamic vinegar on the side (I have plenty of healthy fat from the salmon + avo, and I typically don’t do dressings out - ya just never know what’s in them). 🌱 .
I cut the salmon in half, and will save the rest for dinner or tomorrow’s lunch (peep the back left corner lol). The portion was much more than I needed in one sitting - typical with restaurant meals. I wasn’t able to pack my own lunch today, but you can a l w a y s make it work somewhere, even on my Gut Health Guide to Happiness. Thankful that @greenbeatorlando
had my back here!✨
What are your go-to lunches? Do you pack your lunch for work?
Keeping lunch simple over here after a circuit class and picking up my preschooler. Wrapped a piece of organic turkey meat (swipe to see the brand I use - found at Costco and just organic turkey, water and salt) around spinach and some mustard with carrots and half of a honeycrisp apple! Won’t be posting dinner since we are going to our friends from church’s home for dinner tonight but it’s chicken, salad and we are bringing fruit ☺️#
#whole30lunch #postworkoutmeal #octoberwhole30 #whole30meals
all the essentials i was craving..this literally took me 6 minutes to throw together before i ran out the door to pick up my kids from school (may have eaten it too fast butttt #momlife
) i didn’t use any dressing today, drizzled a little avocado oil on top post pic and enjoyed with some booch! have a restful night friends✌🏻
mixed greens, olives, avo, pine nuts, tomatoes, chickpeas THATS IT🙌🏻 #fastfood #nurturingbodyandmind
Now that the (slightly) warmer weather is here I am so excited to dig in and create some epic salads this summer! 💚🥗🥑
Vegan. Gluten-free. Pumpkin. PANCAKES 🤩 I spontaneously threw ingredients together and this is what happened 🔥 When you think about it, this is pretty much a smoothie... but before you think I’m craaaazy, here’s why - these beauties are only 6 ingredients: pumpkin, banana, oats, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and flax seeds - all the same ingredients I put into smoothies! So whether these foods are blended up in a smoothie form, or combined and baked into pancakes, it’s all the same! Same nutrients. Same ingredients. Same deliciousness. And who said eating healthy has to be boring?! 🙊
-1 cup oat flour (I just blended oats in a blender)
-1/2 cup pumpkin
-1 ripe mashed banana
-1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax seed + 2 tbsp water)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until a thick consistency forms. Heat pan with olive oil on low-medium and place batter. Flip after ~3 minutes. Makes about 6 mini-ish pancakes! I topped mine with melted 90% dark @lindt_chocolate

Barbecue Pulled Pork, Egg, Sweet Potato Fries and Broccolini
Calories: 1589kcal (or 873kcal smaller portion)
Macros: 139g Protein, 122g Carb & 62g Fat
No two ways about it - this is a very much a treat night meal. It tastes so so good, is indulgent and satisfies you on so many levels. It's good for you too with the Slow Cooked Lean Pork Shoulder, Egg, Broccolini, Spring Onions and Sweet Potato. However, it's a high calorie meal for the volume, and it will take 6 hours in the slow cooker plus 30mins prep/cook time. We did leverage a packet sauce for the BBQ flavour and frozen Sweet Potato Fries for ease, but to be honest you could equally make this from scratch and hence be more in control of sauce richness and ingredient quality. Such a SUPER TASTY meal. Wow! Just park a bunch of your daily calories for dinner! 😋
This is a BIIIG plate. For a smaller portion, drop to half of the suggested BBQ Pulled Pork and associated ingredients (¼ of total pot) and half the Sweet Potato Fries. This is the portion size Michelle enjoys. This would save you 716 calories, without compromising on the flavours whatsoever.
Ingredients - AdapNation.io (👉 LinkInBio)
- Quality Pork is high in protein and essential vitamins, minerals, creatine and amino acid good for overall health. Lean pork, when trimmed of visible fat, is nutrient-dense and satisfying. Best to treat pork as a treat as there are more nutritious meats and it's generally higher in calories.
- Sweet Potato offers a nice hit of vitamin A, C, Copper, K & B6, plus has a lower blood sugar response than white potato due to it’s high fibre content that slows the absorption of the carbs.
- Eggs are great source of protein and should be a staple for most active people, with egg yolk providing a nice hit of good cholesterol that helps with hormone production and cell energy. They contain calcium, iron, magnesium… [read more - 👉LinkInBio]

Getting back into my routine starting with this fall inspired lunch bowl🤤 I roasted some butternut squash, Brussels, broccoli & sautéed some mushrooms & shrimp, then topped it on a bed of mixed greens + added alfalfa sprouts & Pom seeds.
I have tons to do this week with work and my move on Friday, it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day🤦🏻♀️ Eating healthy has always been a priority for me & my busy schedule is an easy excuse to fall off track. I find that meal prepping (this week: just roasting tons of veggies) makes my meals easy and one less thing to think about!
It was extremely difficult to chose the perfect photo for this but I finally picked. E pluribus unum. Banana bread has been my jam lately and I'm so happy with how this recipe turned out and I had to share!! I've already eaten half of it. No joke. Also, question: is something considered nut free if it has coconut?
1/4 c butter (sub coconut oil for strict paleo/dairy free)
3 tbs honey
1/4 c coconut flour
1/4 c sweet potato
1/2 c tapioca starch
1 tbs pumpkin spice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1. Melt butter slightly.
2. Add banana and honey and mash.
3. Add eggs and then flour. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and pour in batter.
4. Bake for 25min at 350.
5. Bake for 25min more at 325 to prevent burning.
6. SLATHER WITH BUTTER OR CREAM CHEESE.
7. Tag me in a pic if you make it!!
haven’t took any progress photos lately because I have been afraid of disappointment, etc. also because I live in a house with 37 other girls and don’t exactly have a good place/lighting to take them 😅 the last time I took a progress photo was in August and it was full body unlike this one. I know in a few months I’ll be able to see side by side a remarkable change. my stomach has always been a good indicator of my overall BF % though since I tend to gain/lose weight very evenly throughout my entire body. right now i’m a little fluffy, a little (lot) wider and a little thicker than I was a year ago and that’s okay. I still look really healthy if I do say so myself! and that’s because I have been fueling my body with only clean, healthy foods most days in the past month give or take. yes, I had a day where I ate a huge bag of M&ms and a different day where I ate like 6 brownies. I had more than a few days I went to bed stuffed from a late night snack I didn’t need. everyday I get better at resisting temptation or better yet, re-learning to indulge in moderation (having a handful of M&Ms instead of a whole. sharing size. bag). some days are better than others but the general projection is going upwards and that makes me so excited for the future. for the first time I really feel like the physical shape I want to have is totally attainable, like I have the mental and physical strength to work for it. I always did but it takes time to really start to believe in yourself. A shift in my own mindset I noticed was I stopped beating myself up for not meeting my own unrealistic expectations. I’m not a perfect human being! And I don’t want to fall into a restrictive lifestyle like I once did because that’s not sustainable. I want to be healthy, happy, and balanced - that is my goal for this new 2018/19 fitness journey. I think it’s going to be the best one yet 😎

MINI PROTEIN BAGELS coming up your way. Some people may say these aren't "real" bagels because they aren't boiled in water and just baked in the oven, but as long as it's bread in form of a donut it's a bagel for me. 😌
These mini bagels are full of nourishing ingredients and keep you satisfied for a long time! 😊
Mini Protein Bagels - 6 egg whites

Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a donut pan. (I used rapeseed oil) Combine all ingredients amd beat the egg whites stiff and fold in. Pour batter into the donut pan and sprinkle some sunflower and pumpkin seeds on top. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

If you haven’t been tested for food sensitives you could be eating a diet filled with foods that are causing delayed inflammatory reactions in your body. Inflammation is at the core of many chronic conditions including asthma, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases and many more. Even less debilitating symptoms such as headaches and skin conditions can be caused by inflammation. Avoidance of your food sensitivities can go a long way towards symptom improvement as you lower inflammation.
Dr. Jean Thompson, D.C., explains his experience with food sensitivity testing, “I have received an invaluable benefit by having my blood tested with Immuno Laboratories. I have suffered a skin rash on my arms and chest for 10 years. I tried everything to take it away. Not until I found out my true sensitivities with foods did I have any improvement. Now, after just one week of changing my diet, the rash (of 10 years) is disappearing! I am forever grateful.” If you would like more information about food sensitivities and how to get tested, please feel free to message us or visit our website, www.immunolabs.com. #cleaneating #inflammation #inflammatoryboweldisease #irritablebowelsyndrome #ibs #biohacking #diet #healthychoices #healthyeating #healthtips #nutrition #digestion #foodallergies #allergies #foodsensitivities #foodintolerance #bloated #bloatedbelly #fitness #healthiswealth #healthy #health #foodismedicine #lifestyle #eathealthy #cleaneats #healing #glutenfree

We were recently gifted these delicious meat sticks (thanks to @vtsmoke
) and they have been a huge hit with everyone, including the hubby! I have been packing them in his lunchbox and he can't get enough! The ingredients are 👌 being made without any meats treated with antibiotics and also free of sodium nitrites(a super common preservative in processed meats highly linked to heart disease). They have the same look and texture as the slim Jim's from back in my child hood days, minus all of the junk! Now check out this egg burrito I made to go with them!
*scrambled eggs & added bell pepper, onion, & spinach. Topped with raw cheddar cheese, salsa, & avocado. All over whole wheat organic tortillas. Wrapped in foil to keep warm! Swipe right to see before pic👉
