Happy Tuesday!!! Ive really been embracing these fall breakfasts lately 🍁🙌 this acorn squash was SO good! In all honesty I grabbed it from @aldiusa
just because I thought it looked really pretty, but now I’m pretty much obsessed 💯🤤 all these fall squashes are just so dang good! Plus this was super easy to make 👌 all I did was roast it in the oven with some avocado oil for about 30 minutes and that was it! Pro tip- microwave it for about 3 minutes before you try and cut it, and it greatly reduces the odds of you chopping a finger off 💯hope y’all are having a great Tuesday!! The full recipe for this is up on my blog 🤗y’all go check it out!!!

Sweat 💦 is great for you and removes impurities from your skin.
Letting sweat sit on your skin for prolonged length of time can be problematic. This can cause build up in your pores and breakouts as well as skin irritations that show up differently on various skin types. So what’s the solution?
Clean your face before a workout and after. Use a good cleanser and moisturizer after you clean your face.

Hello Brave Ones!
We are on Day 6 of our 40-Day virtual group coaching. This group is all about strengthening the body, rebooting the nervous system, and doing a deep soul dive. We are uncovering gifts and talents, releasing what doesn't serve us, and learning to follow our bliss and dreams.
I'm doing the protocol right along with everybody else, and I'm definitely feeling shifts and changes in my own physical and emotional body. It. Is. Powerful. Nutrition, Kundalini yoga, journalling, and group support are the fuel that keeps us going, and it works. I will keep you guys posted as we move forward.
I’ve got a virtual group coaching starting in January as a way to kick off the new year! Since it's virtual, you can participate from anywhere in the world. Private message me if you're like to find out more and set up a free coaching session as my gift to you through the link in my bio.
For a little taste of our journey, try this dynamite breakfast option: add strawberries, flaxseeds, almonds and a dash of cinnamon to organic oatmeal. Enjoy! 🥘 🤟🏻✨
::Dieting vs lifestyle:: I vowed to give up dieting forever. I was determined to be done with New Year’s resolutions, and chasing someone else’s idea of an ideal body. .
Until I got sucked back in once again, this time under the guise of making a ‘lifestyle change’. At first glance it seemed and felt totally legit. 👉🏼I was working out
👉🏼 eating healthy .
But the further I got into this new lifestyle, the more it started to feel just like every other diet I’d ever been on before. ✖️restrictive
✖️obsessed with weight loss
✖️not helping me have a better relationship with food or myself
This diet was especially tricky to sniff out because it promotes eating ‘whole foods’, clean foods, and using portions to help monitor your food intake. .
Don’t get me wrong, I STILL eat as many Whole Foods as possible and loosely use portions to help me figure out how much to eat for my goals. .
The difference? Is the mindset.
I’m not Beating myself up for:
✖️ not measuring every little thing or ✖️having too many carbs
✖️having a glass of wine without tracking it or
allowing myself to indulge in a little ice cream when the craving hits. .
You absolutely CAN make lifestyle changes, and if YOU want to improve your health or pursue your own goals, then do it. .
Just remember if it looks like a diet, acts like a diet and FEEELS like a diet, it probably is—whether it’s a ‘lifestyle’ or not. .
PS. You can catch more on this topic on AlishaTV 👆🏻 click the icon in my bio and let me know what you think 💭
What do you eat for breakfast? 👇👇👇
In the past 2 weeks, I’ve fell into an old pattern and I’m not proud of it, but I’m happy I realized it so I can stop it and get back on track with better & healthier habits
As pregnancy comes with up & downs of energy levels, I convinced myself I’d be better off sleeping an extra 30 min in the morning instead of cooking myself breakfast... and then stop by a McDonalds to grab something on the go 🙈
No need to say my energy level kept sinking with little extras... pimples, more often hunger, love handles and acid reflux 🙄🤦🏻♀️
So when I realized it yesterday, I decided to stop lying to myself and simply take that extra 10 min in the morning to FUEL my body with proper nutrients, not just filling it with greasy empty « on the go » food - that’d take me 10 min to get anyway... .
So far, first day in a while without acid reflux 🙌🙌🙌
Felt full until lunch and still have energy left for an extra long day at work! .
« Remember when your body is hungry, it wants nutrients, not calories » 👌
Checked out this new Venezuelan place tonight 😍 So yummy and such a cute little set up, the staff couldn’t do enough for you! 💜 Would highly recommend #RotiBrothers
First it was to lose weights.
Then it was to become healthy.
Now it is a passion and something worth sharing.
That's my reality with green juice and the green lifestyle.
Forever green girl
‘Each new day is a new opportunity to improve yourself. Take it. And make the most of it.’
And just like that, 21 days done ✅ .
Was it perfect? Not 💯- life happens! But I definitely got rid of the bad eating habits that took place over the summer and I never missed a workout! 👊🏻 .
I feel stronger 💪🏻 and definitely sleeping better 😴 .
5 SPOTS LEFT for my November 5 bootcamp! DM me if you want to stay accountable and finish off 2018 feeling AMAZING!! 🙌🏻

BUT i had one and felt so full/satisfied that it ACTUALLY stopped me eatin anything else. (Nothing stops me eating) so im all aboard the grenade train now! And im craving sweety treats atm so ticks all round from me 😋✅✅✅✅ #pleasedontmakemefat #lowcarb #highproteinlowcarb #grenadecarbkilla #slimmingworld #foodforfuel
🙋♀️Guilty!! I LOVE chocolate and sweets and can't resist them! Good news is with 2B Mindset, they're considered a "treat" not a "cheat"🍔🍨🍩🍷 and I can still enjoy them!
2B is a nutritional program where you learn to eat for life. You’ll be full and satisfied and have lasting results since it's not a "quick fix" or fad diet. 😊
We have a New to 2B group going on now. You'll spend more on a few dinners out than you will on this—and this will change your life. Message me or drop your favorite fall emoji if you want more info! ❤️
My friends always ask me how I work remotely and stay focused. If I’m at home, how do I not take lengthly naps? If I’m at a cowering space, how do I not get distracted by socializing? I am working on a blog post on preventing distractions and increasing your focus when working in general, but here are my 10 quick tips. ————————————————————————
1. Turn off your social media notifications.
2. Move your social media apps on your phone away from your home page.
3. Learn to meditate.
4. Create a to-do list. Conquer the small + quick stuff first, then the important, then the long-term, or menial.
5. Do not multi-task.
6. Take planned and purposeful breaks.
7. Go offline - don’t allow yourself to browse social media.
8. Tune out things that distract you and tune into music.
9. Have a steady sleep schedule and exercise schedule.
10. Eat HEALTHY. ————————————————————————

Classic Spanish Paella
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion chopped
6 large cloves garlic finely chopped
1 small red bell pepper (capsicum), diced into small pieces
4 large boneless skinless chicken thigh fillets cut into bite-sized pieces
4 large tomatoes chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine (sauv blanc, pinot gris) -- optional
Salt and pepper to taste
10-12 mussels scraped and cleaned properly
8 ounces (250 g) calamari rings
3 3/4 cups low sodium chicken broth or stock (or homemade fish stock)
2 cups medium grain or jasmine rice
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 teaspoon saffron powder (or saffron threads)
1 teaspoon paprika (sweet or smoked)
1/2 teaspoon each garlic and onion powders
21 ounces (600 g) shrimp
2 tablespoons fresh flat leaf chopped parsley
Fire roasted bell peppers (capsicum) strips *
Heat oil in a large sized non-stick pan or well seasoned skillet (or a paella pan if you have one), over medium heat. Fry onion, garlic and capsicum together; cook until onion is transparent (about 3 minutes).
Sauté chicken until golden on all sides. Add in the chopped tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 5 minutes until they release liquid and the tomatoes begin to create a sauce.
Add the wine, mussels and calamari rings. Allow to cook for a further 5 minutes; allow the wine to evaporate to half the quantity, then pour in the stock (or broth), rice, peas and saffron. Mix all ingredients until well combined.
Bring to a boil; reduce the heat and cover to allow MOST of the liquid to absorb into the rice, while stirring occasionally to prevent rice from sticking and burning to the pan underneath. (Cook until the rice is ALMOST cooked through.)
Add in the prawns, mixing them through the rice, and cover again to allow the prawns and rice to cook completely.
Once cooked, sprinkle with the parsley. Place capsicum strips over the top of the paella for enhanced flavour to serve. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil over the top before serving.
🇮🇹 Sarà anche fine Ottobre, ma qui di pomeriggio -per la mia gioia- fa ancora un bel caldo e al sole si sta tranquillamente in maglietta, quindi bevo ancora con piacere bevande fredde! Mi sembra doveroso approfittare dei 25 gradi pomeridiani finché durano per bere una versione del matcha diversa dalla solita tazza di tè bollente (ne avremo tutto il tempo,sigh). Oltrettutto sì, è vero che di pomeriggio si sta bene, ma nelle prime ore del giorno e la sera non è che faccia tutto sta gran caldo, quindi togli il giacchino, metti il giacchino, lasci a casa lo sciarpino, insomma, i malanni di stagione sono sempre alle porte. Questa limonata al tè matcha è anche l’ideale per fare il pieno di vitamina C e antiossidanti, e grazie all’acqua filtrata con la caraffa BWT, anche di magnesio! Per realizzarla ho infatti utilizzato la caraffa @bwtitalia
che oltre a purificare l’acqua da cloro e metalli pesanti (e a togliere di mezzo la plastica!) la mineralizza, arricchendola appunto di magnesio, di cui è sempre utile avere una fonte in più per chi fa sport. Un elisir di lunga vita praticamente!:D
Per circa un litro di limonata dovrete solo mettere a scaldare una parte dell’acqua e sciogliervi un cucchiaino di matcha e la stevia pura, in polvere, a seconda del vostro gusto (è molto dolce quindi anche di quella non supererei il 1/2 cucchiaino!). Aggiungete quindi 1/4 di bicchiere di succo di limone (a cui potete aggiungere anche del lime) e il resto dell’acqua, fredda. E per portarla con voi, c’è la bottiglia in vetro apposta 💁🏻♀️✨

“I like to chew my food.”
Yep, me too! Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE food! 💕
Just because I have one shake a day, that doesn’t mean I don’t eat, or that my food volume is somehow way lower. 🙅🏼♀️
I eat and chew food at least 3-4X a day!!
But in all that food, I don’t get the nutrients my body craves in just one shake...nutrients that:
🔹satisfy my body on a cellular level
🔹have brought down my cholesterol 50 points
🔹have improved my immune system (knock on wood - I haven’t been sick in a long time)
🔹increased my energy naturally
🔹stabilized my blood sugars so my cravings are way down
🔹improved my digestion, etc. etc.
I know there are a lot of fads and weight loss shakes out there that claim to do certain things and don’t...this isn’t one of them. 🚫
I’ve been drinking this every day for 5 years with no intention of stopping.
Because it makes me feel that stinkin’ good.
And since my goal is to help others live lives of abundance, I share this with you.
Because we all have the ability to do amazing things with our lives and make a difference, but we have to FEEL good in order to step into our full potential. 💕
Let’s chat if you’re ready to stop feeling sick and tired and ready to become who you were meant to be!
