Weight loss fun fact #8
: Weight loss and GLUTEN!
Gluten does not cause weight gain...period! There is absolutely no scientific evidence of this, regardless of what you may be hearing.
Here’s the scoop: 🔅 Certain people must avoid gluten; those with Celiac Disease, auto-immune conditions, gluten sensitivity, etc. 🔅 Others choose to avoid gluten for other personal reasons 🔅 There is no harm by avoiding gluten, as long as you remember to include foods rich in dietary fiber, which means choosing fresh fruits & veggies as well as the appropriate fiber rich grains 🔅 The idea that those who eat GF are “healthier” stems from the principles by which these people are eating. For example, those who eat GF typically are more diligent label readers and typically find themselves gravitating to a more “whole” or “plant-based” diet in order to avoid gluten. While both of these things are considered good rules to live by, they have nothing to do with the gluten itself. 🔅 Not all GF foods are healthy, and some may pack on the pounds just as easy as any other type of food that’s high in sugar, low in dietary fiber and high in calories. These are the GF foods that are pre-package, ready-to-eat style foods that aren’t the best choices. ➡️ CASE IN POINT: Choose wisely to determine what is right for you!

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is one of nature’s most powerful ingredients that offer health as well as beauty benefits. ACV is rich in acetic, citric and malic acids as well as vitamins, enzymes, mineral salts and amino acids. .
As an antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antifungal agent, it helps treat the common cold, muscle pain, arthritis pain, diabetes, high cholesterol and weight issues.
This all-natural, all-purpose kitchen staple is also becoming a preferred beauty ingredient. ~Prevents acne and pimples
~Say goodbye to dandruff
~Freedom from smell feet ~Soothes sunburns ~Makes hair shiny and healthy
I felt the need to post this after getting some messages recently such as “How do you stay so motivated in the gym?” or “I just want abs! I’m barely eating anything!” The first two photos are from 2016. The last one is me now.
I’m quite open about my struggle with an eating disorder because I want this ugly son of a b**** to turn into something beautiful by helping others going through it or those with loved ones struggling.
I see posts every day of people who “seem to have it all together.” They don’t. I have my slips just like every other human. Everyone has a struggle. Shame being a huge one. I’m just choosing to turn the shame of my eating disorder into a memento that life is damn hard but you can decide to change it. I’ve said this before, but don’t hesitate to reach out to me for support or just someone to talk to. Talking about this to a friend does wonders. (Also if you want to know more about eating disorders in general/have other questions, message me🤗) #neda #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorder #recovery #fitness #healthy #eatwellbewell #progress #5starnutrition
To all of the girls and women out there!!!!!
Having tempting food around makes most people more likely to give in. We have a little trooper of a hormone called *do-it* dopamine (💡 THINK: it makes us want to do stuff) and when we have *done-it* we get a little bit of *satisfied* serotonin which says “oh boy thanks we needed that” . This reward system can be triggered by lot of things, but the big ones are food, reproducing and feeling part of the pack (making friends, fitting in socially). .
If we don’t fulfil our basic human needs it hurts. Hunger hurts. Feeling lonely hurts. Being bullied hurts. It has to hurt for us to want to drive away from it (so we can survive as a human race 💛). .
The thing about this *do it* dopamine is that it gets stronger and stronger the longer we don’t have it for..... I’m sure we can all relate to that. *cicra* EVERY time Sandra from accounts brings in a chocolate cake for your team meeting. You don’t want any at the start of the meeting but by the end you’ve given in. .
PRACTICAL USE with food? DON’T buy the foods you struggle to resist. DON’T have them in the house, or at least DON’T keep them out. If it’s there you’re more likely to have it. Save those foods for when you’re out and have them less often. Keep yourself distracted and know this..... .
💡 P R I D E . The feeling of pride actually gives us the same *satisfied* serotonin, so Know that if you resist and feel P R O U D as punch that you resisted. You’ll feel just as good as if you’d had that cake.
Coconut Vanilla Bean Shaken Hibiscus Iced Tea Latte AKA my afternoon “Pank Drank” // The official drink of my summer, this caffeine-free beauty is refreshing, light, tart and it can be sweetened or not – however you’d like. I personally go with just a single drop or two of monkfruit, if anything at all.

HAIR GROWTH TIPS ✨💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After literally years of trying everything, my hair is FINALLY growing again! 🙌🏼 I severely damaged my hair in high-school after straightening, curling, crimping, washing, and blow drying it every single day.
Here are the main things that have helped my hair get healthy and start growing again: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Less Washing: I went from washing my hair every 1-2 days, to twice a week. Over washing actually drys out + damages our hair, so go as long as possible between washes! Corn starch works amazing as a cheap and natural dry shampoo 👌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Less Heat: Honestly, I still use heat on my hair. BUT, I’ve drastically reduced the amount. I only blow dry, curl, or straighten the top, and don’t use any heat on the ends. This has made a huuuge difference!
Natural Products: I switched over all my shampoos, conditioners, sprays, etc to natural, toxin-feee alternatives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oils: Oils hydrate, strengthen, + repair dry + damaged hair. My favourites are almond, coconut, and argan! I apply oil to the ends after showering, and use a small amount as a heat protectant. I also do an oil hair mask 1x/week.
Gut Health: Sometimes, our hair doesn’t grow because our body isn’t absorbing the nutrients it should be. That’s why healing our digestive issues and strengthening the gut is SO important. DM me if you have questions about this!
Supplements: Biotin (and other B vitamins), vitamin A, C, + E, collagen, calcium, iron, zinc and EFAs are all important for hair growth. This skin, nails, & hair supplement by @megafoodscanada
contains all the essential hair-growth nutrients, and has been working wonderfully for me and my hair 💛

a rice bowl for breakfast, you do the same to feel like part of the fam. What another great way to sneak some veggies into breakfast! This was a GREAT way to start the day, so tasty, filling and nutrient dense 😋
Details: toast some cooked rice 🍚 in a cast iron pan, add some grated carrots 🥕 and LOTS of cabbage. Sauté until the cabbage cooks down, then add some mushrooms and beans into the pan to warm up. Mix in some sriracha and coconut 🥥 aminos and then transfer to a bowl. Crack two eggs 🥚 into the cast iron and fry them up. Add the eggs 🍳 to your rice bowl and then throw some peanuts 🥜 into the cast iron pan to roast and throw on top of the bowl for some crunch.

you can never go wrong with the classic pb&banana combo, amiright? 🥜🍌 hoping this comforting breakfast will also calm my stress a bit, as today is a very big day for my younger sister and family. i haven’t talked about it at all on here, but the main reason we’re actually in the US for so long (6 weeks) is because my sister has to get brain surgery, and needs recovery time before she can fly again. today, she is getting the 4-hour surgery, so you can imagine my family and i are quite worried about the whole thing. my uncle flew in from north carolina to support my mom in all of this, so they’re at the hospital with my sister now. i’m home with my youngest sister for the day, crossing my fingers that everything goes well!!🤞i do have some things of my own to do, such as hand in an application form, do some groceries for meals the next couple days, and meet up with a friend of my mom because i’ll be taking care of her dog for a couple days🐶 so nothing real special, mainly just errands and hoping my sister is going to be okay. hope you all have a relaxing thursday💜

was almost perfect. I wanted asparagus really badly but didn’t have any.. so I subbed green beans and shelled edamame for the side with my eggs over medium atop tomato slices and a bed of fresh spinach, and it was good! It was a #nutrientdense
meal which = fuel for this body! 💪🏼
Most don’t think that about adding veggies to breakfast, but they can really help keep you fuller longer while maintaining a very low caloric content. PLUS I’ve already eaten half the recommended daily value of veggies and it isn’t even 10am! I’ve been slacking for too long, time to get back on track, starting NOW!

My daughter made cranberry muffins this morning from @namastefoodsllc
muffin mix. These are dairy, egg, gluten, soy and nut free. They baked up so fluffy and yummy from simple ingredients and she added tart cranberries. Cranberries aren’t in season, but we have organic cranberries we froze last year. I absolutely love the tartness and low sugar of cranberries. If you have food allergies namaste is a great brand because their manufacturing is free from more than just the top 8 allergens plus they use simple whole ingredients without the crazy preservatives you’d find in traditional processed foods. #cranberrymuffin
My morning beverage of choice in these hot summer months 🍵 new on the blog is my go-to iced matcha latte. It's lightly sweetened, full of healthy fats, and even has some protein in it! All you need to do is throw everything in your blender and pour over ice! I'm not a coffee drinker so if I need a little pick me up, matcha it is. Recipe is on the blog!⠀
Playing with spices on my photo shoot yesterday. This was so much fun.
I feel so lucky to not only cook meals for families as a personal chef (which I love), but to also have started working as a food photographer and stylist. I am slowly learning more and more about my camera and also different ways to set things up to shoot.
After working an 8 hour day styling earlier this month, I have realized it’s a lot harder on my body than standing and cooking all day. Who would have figured? Even with a sore back for days I count my blessings.

Let's chat morning routines ☀️ I swear if I don't do some sort of routine when I get up, I feel like my day is outtake whack 🤯 I'll take waking up 30 minutes earlier anyday! No thanks to rushed mornings 🙅♀️
My fav way to start my morning currently:
• Making my coffee (usually do collagen coffee but just ran out 😭)
• Stretching/yoga and a long ass downward dog.. or anything to get my body up and moving for at least 10 minutes 🐕
• Quick snuggles with with animals because I missed them while I was sleeping 🤷♀️
• Get some fresh air and sunlight (I honestly feel like THIS makes the biggest difference)
That's about it! Just giving myself a few minutes in the morning for MYSELF makes my day that much better. It's like if I can control my morning I can control anything that's gonna come my way 😎🤘
What are some of your morning routines?? I love to jazz things up from time to time 🤗 Hope you all have the best Thursday!
Hello.... I wanted to introduce myself. I am Cristy, the creator of @plantbasedfoodcreations
❤️. I am an Italian girl born and raised in California. I am a cancer, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, IBS, and celiac survivor. I chose a vegan plant-based lifestyle for an inflammation free way of living. Gluten free eating isn’t a choice, it is by allergy. Vegan gluten free plant based recipes with no added sugar have me medicine free and feeling amazing. My blog is created by finding I am extremely creative with a plant-based diet, something I never knew before. I literally just place a bunch of ingredients on the counter and let the rest happen. My creative side just comes to me based on what I have in front of me. I enjoy styling food and photographing it. Not only is my food delicious, but it is presented in a way that makes clean limited eating fun. Pretty plates, clean food, presented with tasty recipes is very satisfying. I hope to inspire those with health issues, clean eating desires, and fitness minded, that plant based eating doesn’t have to be boring. I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy sharing them. I welcome you to follow along with me on this journey of living life to its fullest, one plate at a time. Life is full of inspirations! To inspire and to be inspired are what I call living life to its fullest.
XOXO 💋, Cristy
