💥FOOD CAN DO MORE THAN CHANGE YOUR WEIGHT💥
This is the message I loved most about my podcast with @corylrodriguez (LINK IN BIO)
Too often food is looked at as something that just changes the way you look. People see “healthy food” as “weight loss” food or “muscle building” food.
In reality, it can impact every aspect of your life!
Do you know anyone that’s extremely happy that eats garbage food all day?
I joke about it in the podcast but some of these healthy foods should have a label on them that says “improves happiness”.
Because they do!
Fermented foods for example improve your gut health and your gut has a direct connection to your brain.
So when your gut feels good, YOU feel good.
Try this approach when you’re trying to eat healthier this week. -
Instead of thinking about the weight you want to lose, think about how much happier you want to be!
My life is crazy, and I love every minute of it! .
Not long ago, I was mapping out my path to advanced nursing degrees 👩🏼⚕️ like many of my colleagues. But something about it just didn’t feel right. So instead of putting my head down and pushing on, I stopped and listened. I followed my heart down a very different path. .
See, I reached a point in my nursing career where I felt like I didn’t want to do it anymore. Too many shifts a week of 12+ hours filled with turning and pulling patients and running 🏃♀️ back and forth like crazy had taken its toll on me. Even after the best days I dreaded going back for my next shift. I needed a change.
We had big dreams for our farm to help feed our family and community, to be a refuge for those who so desperately need that healing connection with our Earth 🌏. And I knew that my heart for nursing was really in helping my community stay healthy, not in nursing them back from the brink in an ICU.
Then something clicked. A few years ago I had purchased this little kit of oils 💧 and it came with a business opportunity following a network marketing model. These oils have been so valuable along our family’s wellness journey, and I could earn an income to put toward this life we were building that would better align with our hearts’ desires. .
This job doesn’t trade dollars 💵 for hours ⏰ like every other job I’ve ever had. It pays me for helping others along their own wellness journey and toward their own vision of purpose and abundance. Because I chose to pursue this business, I’m able to do more of what makes my heart sing.
In just over a year, this little essential oils 💧 business has went from 0 to grossing a little over $100,000 in sales. That’s a whole lot of people joining this wellness journey! And a whole lot of personal and family freedom to do more of what we love and more to help in our community. .
I’m so thankful that I got outside of my box 📦 of what defines a career and said yes to a business that helps me do all of this. ❤️ Because I truly believe that we’re all here to do more than exist or just get by. .
What are you dreaming up as part of your journey?
Easy satisfying supper tonight thanks to help from @manitoutrading porcini risotto with added white button mushrooms, shiitakes, spinach and pimentos next to @gardein crispy tenders with vegan ranch and salad. 🍴💚

♥️Gluten FREE, Vegan Lasanga♥️😋 Ah, it feels so good to eat food that doesn't cause inflammation, diabetes, and many other disease linked to the S.A.D = Standard American Diet. . Funny how that spells that huh?! 🤔 Any who, here is an easy, quick recipe for those who want to eat for FUEL and wellness without harming our eco-system! 💪🏾💥 👉🏾Preheat oven to 350 degrees 👌🏾
👉🏾In a saucepan, add a couple dashes of oil(I used sunflower🌻) and turn the heat up to medium. 👉🏾Cut onion slices and let them cook in the saucepan for 2 minutes and add JACKFRUIT into the mix with your choice of an organic pasta sauce. Optional: Add salt and pepper.
Optional: Add some Kale or any greens to the sauce for extra health benefits!
✨Jackfruit is full of nutrients like Vitamin C & A plus minerals like Zinc and Iron. It's such an AMAZING meat alternative without the torture and execution of slaughterhouse animals. 😊
👉🏾Once fully cooked, set aside. In a bowl, mix about 2 cups of your choice of vegan mozzarella cheese with lots of Italian seasoning and garlic powder. I recommend @miyokos_kitchen for a cheese alternative. 😏
👉🏾In a deep dish or Lasagna pan, cover in oil, and add some of your Jackfruit, onion sauce. 👉🏾Place a couple of DeBoles Brown Rice Lasagna sheets over your sauce. Then, add one cup of vegan cheese over the Lasagna sheets. 👉🏾Add more of the sauce over the vegan cheese and REPEAT the pattern. 👉🏾Sprinkle the remaining vegan cheese mix as a topping! 👉🏾Cover with foil (looking for better options! Heard foil isn't the best) 😓
👉🏾And bake for 50-55 minutes!
👉🏾Once if passes the fork 🍴 test, its ready to DEVOUR! 🤤 Well, once it cools off of course? 😅
I hope your body and consciousness enjoys it just as mine did! Remember to stay mindful and grateful. 🙏🏾
Guys, I ate like half of it. . Lmao 😂 didn't make too much tho. Muah! 💋

Your gallbladder stores bile produced by the liver and releases it into the small intestine during digestion to break down fats.
Give your gallbladder what it needs to function at its best for you. Foods like sweet potatoes, beets, leafy greens, lemons, apples, flaxseed oil and cucumbers are what it craves.

When filet mignon is on sale for $6.99/lb you bet your ass you’re eating steak on #MeatlessMonday 😂 Grabbed this 🥩 from my favorite little market down the street. They have amazing finds (clearly) and I cannot wait until summer when their adjoining clam shack is open again 🤘
Lentil/quinoa tacos requested by my kids and husband because we are hitting the gym tonight and needed extra protein. My oldest daughter's boyfriend requested a workout and healthy meal 😊❤️ It is true; if you will stick to a healthy lifestyle, others will follow because they see it works!! 😃🏃🏻♀️#vegan#plantbased#runnerforlife#planetfitness#eattolive#family ❤️

Yellow split pea & root vegetable stew. Yesterday, I stopped at a local grocery store to check out their "discount produce" shelf where I always seem to find perfectly good fruits & vegetables there, & many times they're organic & completely indistinguishable from the regularly priced goods. I couldn't believe I found a large package of soup veggies for $1.73! It contained: an onion, 2 carrots, 1 parsnip, 2 potatoes, a turnip, a small bunch of parsley, & 2 stalks of celery. This was the perfect opportunity to whip up a batch of warm, comforting stew on a chilly Sunday afternoon! I also used some yellow split peas I purchased for $1.99 at my favorite local discount grocery store. But I ended up only using half the bag of peas, some dulse flakes, garlic & a strip of kombu I had in the pantry. Those items probably were another 20 cents, bringing the grand total to $2.92 to make over a gallon of nourishing & healthy stew! That entire pot was enough for 8 LARGE servings! It only took me about 15 minutes to prep the veggies and start simmering the trimmings for broth, with a total cook/prep time of an hour!
If you're skeptical of those prices, check out my Instastory to see the prices tags for my ingredients!
Recipe: makes ~8 large servings
1 medium diced onion
2 large thinly sliced carrots
1 large diced parsnip
2 medium diced potatoes
1 large diced turnip
2 stalks of diced celery
1 small bunch of stemmed and chopped parsley
1 strip of kombu
2 Tbsp dulse flakes
3 garlic cloves
1 lb of rinsed yellow split peas
Prep vegetables, reserve peels & trimmings to add to 2 quarts of water in a medium saucepan with kombu and dulse flakes. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, & cook for 20-30 minutes. Strain solids from broth and keep warm until ready to use.
Add onion & celery to a large stock pot, adding 1/4 cup of broth to prevent burning and sticking. Add carrots and parsnips, cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the remaining vegetables & split peas to the pot & cover with remaining broth. Add additional water if necessary to keep contents submerged & simmer for 20 minutes until peas and veggies are softened. Remove from heat & stir in parsley.
I went through life wanting to please everyone that I met. Do you do things that makes other people happy, and not always yourself?
I was a people pleaser 🙋🏼♀️
I lived in fear of others opinions 🙋🏼♀️
I was terrified that I would hurt someone’s feelings 🙋🏼♀️ Year 31 of this journey called life, I realized that I wasn’t doing things that gave ME joy or happiness. Ever feel like that?
I knew that I was meant to help others; other than saving their teeth one at a time 🤣. Any other dental hygienists out there?! Every hour was repetitive. Same small chit chat with each patient. Essentially no excitement and I was looking for another way to fulfill the feeling of helping others 🤸🏼♀️! I finally CHOSE to go outside the normal life of living 9-5 and try something that I KNEW others would have an opinion on. It’s so scary to do something out of the norm eh?! It wasn’t easy, but I knew that only I could change my feelings and start creating a lifestyle I was excited about!!! Aaaaaand truth be told, no one was paying my bills but me 🙌🏼!! Since I got started with this incredible opportunity of connecting with like minded women, and my life has completely taken a turn! A POSITIVE turn 🤟🏼!!! 💫 I have made friends from the west to the east coast of Canada 🇨🇦 AND even in the states 🇺🇸!!!! 💫 I’ve learned to focus on the positive no matter what life throws at me 🤘🏼
💫 It’s given me and Brad so many experiences that we would have been more financially strapped to do (such as purchase Trigger 🐶, pay for his vet bills, golf club set ⛳️, work 3 days a week with my career, and now going to Vegas!!!) None of that ☝️ would have been possible if I wasn’t open minded. If I didn’t ask questions. If I didn’t just TRY something new.
Wishing you had women just like you and me to connect with?! Tired of being bored, sick and tired?
Keep thinking 🤔 you deserve to live a more positive lifestyle?
Always wanted to make a second stream of income to cover the FUN things in life?
You CAN have whatever YOU want!! You just have to be open minded; and be willing to put in just a little bit of work 👊🏼!!
