food can be healing and delicious. it doesn’t have to be an either or. when i tell people i manage my mood disorder with food + cannabis people think eating is either mega complicated or boring. not only is it easy but also delicious 😋 like this mega easy asian inspired tuna patties, they’re crispy and buttery and with my homemade pickled cucumbers (a recipe that I borrowed from an old mentor - @cafe_sushi aka the best place on earth) over a bed of arugula covered in a creamy sesame citrusy dreamy. 😛😛 to make these bomb tuna patties 👉🏻 start with 1 large Japanese sweet potato cooked and mashed, add 1 can of drained @wildplanetfoods tuna + 2 T of @majesticgarlic creamy garlic + handful of chopped cilantro + scallions, tablespoon of coconut aminos + sesame oil. mix all together until combined, season with @redmondrealsalt garlic salt + pepper. form into three patties, cook on medium low heat on a @fourthandheart ghee slathered cast iron skillet. about 5-8 minutes per side, don’t move so a nice crust from. WHY EAT TUNA? cause it helps you produce melatonin, full of omega three + healthy protein. aka great brain food #FollowOurPassionStyle #MentalHealthBlogger #FeedYourBrain #EatGoodFeelGood

a little over five years ago i was in a almost six month mania stint- psychosis and all. WHY? - because the way my body + brain process all the medication made it that after a few months my dosage needed to be adjusted and often medications altered. we found this one anti psychotic that had been working for a few months until in Panama the pharmaceutical companies decided to stop bringing the pill version, and only have the shot version- a month long dosage - so there’s a catch- 3% of patients don’t react the same to the shot version. i happened to fall into that category. I share this with you all because the reason I share my story the reason I share recipes is because no one was advocating for me. no one else was out there talking about the struggles, giving suggestions or just sharing their journey. what happened when the medication didn’t help or work, when I joined this community that void I had at first was soon filled by all of YOU! I hope to do the same 👉🏻recipe for peaches and cream smoothie bowl with a poached peach 😛 blend 2 frozen bananas + 1/2 cup of @traderjoes frozen coconut chunks + 1/2 peach all blended with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, @rootandbones reishi + a good pinch of @redmondrealsalt salt and homemade hemp milk using @manitobaharvest hemp hearts. top with cardamom vanilla poached peach and a drizzle of @sunbutter #FollowOurPassionStyle #MentalIllnessAwareness #BipolarDisorder #BipolarMania #BipolarType1 #ManicDepressive #BipolarSupport #MentalHealthAdvocate

drinking some nettle tea and between the cranberries pills and these other ones i picked up in natural grocers, i finally feel like i at the end of my gout flare up. i was diagnosed with gout - it’s a form of arthritis- inflammation in the joints. my dad has gout and it’s hereditary. the pain increases at night for me, with pain on my fingers, ankles and back. while normally high cbd strains, cbd creams and more help with the pain but this time everything that worked before hasn’t. 👉🏻 I bring this up because even though I am a huge advocate of you are what you eat, since my move, my eating habits have suffered. i’ve been eating gluten when out on the weekend, and started playing around with beans again - leading to high uric acid - producing urate crystals - that cause pain. my health has been my main priority the last two weeks, and being active hasn’t been possible because of the pain. i still try to walk a lot. ✨health looks different every day. today it’s this tea, @friends and @cadoicecream mint chip ice cream. tomorrow it’s watching the @patriots play + getting acupuncture. have grace with yourself, listen to your body and remember to love yourself even in difficult times. have a beautiful saturday evening #FollowOurPassionStyle #GoutArthritis #HealthAndHappiness #YourBodyIsATemple #LoveYourselfAlways #SelfCareIsTheBestCare #TooEarlyForChristmasMugs ?
the truth is sometimes it’s just a girl and her cookie. or in this case cookie skillet. it took time before I started to feel comfortable staying home, and not going out. it was hard, i mean sleep is important but at the same time i wanna enjoy life. i still do, like tonight with this cookie skillet, a scoop of @cadoicecream mint chip, @foodnetworkchopped not shown the lemon @spindriftfresh to wash the cookie down 😛😛 the recipe for the cookie skillet is on the blog, added @alchemyfoodco cannabis coconut oil instead of the ghee, used @enjoylifefoods mini chips instead of dark chocolate and used a flax egg instead of reg egg. #FollowOurPassionStyle #ChocolateChipCookieSkillet #FridayNightPlans #CookieMonster #DairyFreeGlutenFree

eggs && mental health 🌿✨💥 more importantly egg yolks, i know so many people who don’t eat the yolk because it’s “bad” makes them “fat” or so many other “myths” is science is constantly changing. and over the years i learned to not judge food, it’s not gonna get us anywhere and that food can be VERY healing. like eggs + depression and also with psychosis. yolks are full choline, is a nutrient that helps with the brain development of certain receptors that normalize cerebral inhibition when your in psychosis or mania. Omega three fatty acid’s, Amino acid’s and vitamin B both also found in the the yolk, help with depression. DO YOU EAT ENOUGH EGG YOLKS.? breakfast today👉🏻 full fat coconut milk yogurt (recipe coming sooon), bed of spinach, the last of my summer tomatoes, half an avocado, and a @nestfresheggs jammy egg. all sprinkled with @redmondrealsalt + @greenpointtrading za’atar a drizzle of olive oil, and lemon juice. #FollowOurPassionStyle #MentalHealthAndFood #EggsAndMentalHealth #MentalHealthAdvocate

i was at the mall today and was impacted with the fact that all those fast food restaurants at the food court throw away their food at the end of the night 😱😱i was in complete and utter awe and deeply sadden. i mean we could give that all away to the thousands of people in the surrounding areas who doesn’t have food to eat.. why would we not do that? anyways. i wanted to bring this up because at the end of the day if something isn’t right, it is up to us to create change. if you don’t speak up we can’t expect things to be different. so today i speak up and ask you all as i start a petition to have restaurant have to giveaway food instead of throw away at the end of the day. i am in the process of how this works but i do believe that if i want something to change I need to start somewhere. ‼️‼️#FollowOurPassionStyle #StandForChange #StandForKindness #HelpFeedTheHomeless

BIPOLAR + MANIA 💥💥 in my opinion the most addicting drug out there. the strange thing is, it isn’t a drug but it can be just as dangerous. mania as well as hypomania rope you feel, make you fall in love and then leave you broken, hurt and most of all on the floor. it’s been FIVE years since my last manic episode and I celebrate it in the most fulfilling way possible by bringing it up and creating awareness around it. in college I kept my mouth shut, I was addicted to those spurs of electricity. and even after living at home, I didn’t always mention it as soon as I felt the rise. I loved it, the high paced, don’t give a shit, no consequences to my actions attitude. but it’s all a mania endured haze that blinds you. when reality hits, there are consequences, and that vacation you took, you have to return at some point. yes mania is fun, exciting and almost like spell but it can lead to life threatening situations. educate yourself. and above all remember, those moments end, and each time it’s the crash down is more intense. #FollowOurPassionStyle #BipolarMania #MentalHealthAwareness #BipolarSurvivor

there was a time in my life when pasta was allowed. bacon wouldn’t even enter my thought process and food was the enemy. my relationship with food went from one extreme of complete and utter love for the cooking, getting lost in the moment aspect and then the absolute fear it brought if i had to consume it. it was hard to heal this back and forth dangerous habit that had landed me in the hospital in multiple occasions. it wasn’t until a little over four years ago when someone basically asked me if i wanted to live or die. it wasn’t a manipulative tactic or something to get me to rethink everything but more of a really, do you wanna live, or do you wanna continue to kill yourself slowly in a life you hate. that moment for ever changed my life. it’s not always easy and i still have days where i honestly have to talk myself into eating and stop myself from punishing myself for eating this or that. ✌🏻 my mom and step dad came over for dinner and i made them my bacon parsley and roasted tomato pasta salad, perfect for a late summer evening and so causal entertaining. babes i legit felt like an adult, hosting dinner and all haha. 🤣😂 just me .? alright any who i love using @jovialfoods gluten free pasta, and tossing it with tons of @fourthandheart garlic ghee, some lemon juice, @majesticgarlic creamy garlic and a few other key ingredients to create a delicious and easy pasta salad // it’s gluten free + dairy free and TOTALLY amazing. oh and i ate it all cause it was yummy and i can 💃💃 #followourpassionstyle #eatingdisorderrecovery #edwarrior #foodfreedom #eatwhatyouwant #bringonthecarbs

the same smoothie bowl from last night went down tonight 💯i mean chocolate spinach smoothie topped with @alchemyfoodco cannabis coconut oil chocolate chip cookie dough is basically the best thing since avocado. smoothie base is VERY easy 👉🏻couple handfuls of spinach, some fresh mint, 1/2 an avocado, frozen banana, 2 scoops of @manitobaharvest chocolate hemp protein + couple spoonfuls of @moodbeli ceremony tonic + their new cloud powder + hella ice and as little water with a pinch @redmondrealsalt before blending it until smooth and topping with cacao nibs + homemade cannabis infused cookie dough. 😛😛 for those of you who asking about why i choose to leave certain foods out of diet, the answer is simple: I leave out foods that don’t agree with my body/mind. i’m lactose intolerant, celiac, i also have pcos, so soy and sugar tend to affect my hormones which will affect my mood, therefore putting my mental health in an unhealthy place. i think long and hard about every decision i make which can indirectly affect my health. food for a very long time was the enemy. and during stressful times can still wonder into that role, something i have to be mindful of. i learn something new all the time, no one will ever know my mind + body more than me. i just have to listen. do you listen to your mind and body.? do you hear them talking to you.? let me know by dropping a comment #followourpassionstyle #smoothierecipes #mentalhealthblogger #holisticmedicine #bipolardisorder #pcosawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery

i’ve always been the girl that rather stay in, than go out. even in high school + college, the parting, drinking , it was more about not dealing with my emotions. that and not feeling like it was “normal” to wanna stay in ... don’t get me wrong i like to have fun, and a lot of the time i start dancing without the music but going to a club, it’s not really my scene. it exposes me to situations i don’t feel 💯 comfortable with. fast forward: i feel 💯 comfortable with who i am. i stay home on a friday night, drink a sleepy time blend tea, make a honey moringa face mask and read a book. oh and eat tahini fudge. cause i want to ✌🏻 babes if you wanna stay in and read GO for it, if you wanna stay in and play video games AWESOME, if you wanna go out 💃 BRO DO IT. whatever it is, make sure you are happy, #youdoyouboo #followourpassionstyle #embraceyourweirdness #fridaynightfacemask #sorrynotsorry #greenbeauty #diyfacemask

managing my mood disorder is way more than just eating a balanced real food no processed shit diet 🌿🌱 i also have to be mindful and find ways to release built up energy and reset my body and mind, once or twice a week, i get out of the city, where the only company i have is the cozy trees, whispering winds and view in front of me. bring around people is great but it tends to feed my manic side, being out in the mountains creates a sort of balance.

made one of my ultimate favorite recipes on the blog paleo tuna melt on sweet potato toast. bro let me tell you these are so insane you won’t be able to stop at one. i made a crazy good tuna salad with a few of my favorite ingredients like @chosenfoods avocado mayo but instead of using the org i used the wasabi which goes amazing with the @wildplanetfoods tuna. these are mega easy to make and came together in under 30 mins in my toaster oven. get the full recipes on the bloggie www.followourpassion.com #followourpassionstyle #paleoeats #easyrecipes #ontheblog
i wasn’t sure i wanted to post this photo because i started to feel insecure about how i looked. but then i thought, fuckkkkk that. i took this picture because i finally feel comfortable in my own skin. in the last three years, i’ve learned a lot about myself, i really started to embrace every single curve, the way my thighs touch, my boobs because let’s face it, i have big tits. and i’ve learned to really love my body. not just accept it, but truly love it and that means sharing this picture and telling you all you are worthy, beautiful and inspiring souls. remember that you are so much more than the number on the scale, the little jiggle on your legs, the squish on your stomach. LOVE you body, babes! love youuuu all. #followourpassionstyle #eatingdisorderrecovery #healthyandhappy #bodypositivitymovement #bopobabe

LET’S TALK CAFFEINE + MENTAL HEALTH 🌱🌿 when i was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the first thing my doctors told me was to ditch it. it was a habit hard to kick, more because i was told i couldn’t. then when i ditched the western medicine path and went a more holistic one, coffee was slowly introduced. then dropped again. it went back and forth for a year or so before taking a couple years off, reintroducing matcha and then coffee last year. i will say that this past year my caffeine consumption has increased a lot, and after noticing how much my mood has been bouncing up + down, caffeine is out again for a few months. my adrenals are bit out balance. it’s important to listen to our minds + bodies. we are always evolving, and different situations can alter how things affect us. it’s important to honor our bodies + minds. sipping on caffeine free chai latte. what are some of your favorite coffee alternatives? #followourpassionstyle #mentalhealth #bipolardisorder #pcosawareness #coffeealternative

the last couple months have been tough. between the move, the constant change, and throwing my routine out the window. as a creature of habit it’s really hard to deal with change, so while i am beyond grateful to be living here in colorado. it’s still tough. yesterday i asked for help, called my momma, and with her help created a new “routine” more of a list of things i want to accomplish each day. today i kept it VERY simple. journal.walk.blog.inspiring podcast.lunch.work.positive affirmations.dinner.journal. i was able to get everything on my list done. keeping it minimal all week, and will start to add to it.. staying on a less is more right now. in the meantime i’m also going back to basics with food, TONS of gut friendly foods, greens + healthy fats. leaving behind 👉🏻 caffeine, any sugars (including honey + maple syrup), lowering my carb intake, and artificial processed foods (since my move, i’ve been reaching for foods i haven’t touched in years) #mentalhealth #followourpassionstyle #bipolardisorder #youarewhatyoueat
started my morning with a long leisure walk. getting back into the groove, creating new rituals + routines. then made this easy, no fuss overnight oats situation. in a mason jar last night i added @bobsredmill gluten free rolled oats, some @sun_milk_colorado + pinch of salt and a big ol spoonful of @justins cashew butter, fresh blueberries from @boulderfarmersmarket #followourpassionstyle #startyourmorningright #breakfastinspo #bouldercolorado

one of my favorites quick and easy meals is my savory waffle recipe. i keep them naturally gluten free by using boiled cassava root. it keeps them paleo, the texture is amazing and it’s also pretty cheap. i love to make a bunch, freeze them, and then warm them up in my toaster oven. you can top them up however you want. 👉🏻 in a large bowl add cooked cassava root or yucca, mash with a potato masher or fork. then add a few tablespoons of @fourthandheart pink salt ghee + @majesticgarlic creamy garlic + @kitehillfoods reg cream cheese and then season with salt + pepper. mix all together, form into a large enough ball that when flatten would cover your waffle maker. cool until mega crispy. top with whatever you want 💥💥here topped with ghee fried egg and arugula drizzled with lemon juice and seasoned with salt + pepper. #followourpassionstyle #savorywaffle #paleorecipes
funny store 👉🏻 after having an amazing day (blog wise // life) i twisted my ankle literally walking. and while it did hurt slightly at first, it didn’t really start hurting until i got home + took off my shoes. i’m using cannabis as an anti-inflammatory + also arnica. elevating + icing. it still hurts a lot so i kept it simple for dinner 🌱🌿 toasted @canyonglutenfree smeared with @majesticgarlic creamy basil garlic which i infused with @stillwater.life 1:1 mashed avocado, sprinkled it with nutritional yeast + @rootandbones pine pollen topped with thick slices of tomatoes i picked up at @boulderfarmersmarket the other day. the other one is smothered with @yumbutter cashew butter + hella cinnamon, topped with juicy summer strawberries with a sprinkle of @redmondrealsalt and coconut flakes + pistachios. alright my friends have a beautiful evening, xo #followourpassionstyle #lovebreadagain #glutenfrefoodie #boulderco

made my tropical mango fat balls + added some of my favorites to keep me feeling amazing 🤪healthy fats have been the best thing for both my mental + physical health. my energy + focus is way better, and also my mood has been way more balanced. it’s been a while since i’ve made my fat balls, made some this morning to keep me sane during the week. i never imagined that keeping myself fed with healthy fats would help with my bipolar disorder, and the positive changes have been amazing. just like i infused my lattes with cannabis, i do the same with my fat balls. between the coconut butter, and all the nuts + seeds, infusing with cannabis is perfect since it is fat soluble. ✌🏻✌🏻 i get my dried mango in Costco from @madeinnature // the coconut butter is from @binniescoconutbutter // and i like to get my nuts + seeds in bulk from @nutsdotcom (it’s cheaper) // the collagen in the recipe is from @vitalproteins 👉🏻 head over to the blog to get the entire recipe for my tropical mango fat balls // i used @stillwater.life 1:1 in this batch #followourpassionstyle #summereats #mentalhealth #healthyfats #healthyedibles #coloradocannabis
