Incorporate daily movement that you look forward to - not exercise that you dread!
2019 has been a TIME and it’s been like 2 weeks lmao - but in a good way
I moved into my own apartment!!! a space all to myself + i have access to a sauna❣️I’ve got my own cutlery, dishes, towels, and fun mugs - all grown people things. It’s a building collection and it feels nice to be mine✨
I’ve stopped eating meat and vowed to #veganism
& I’ve cut alcohol out of my life🕊
I feel like I’ve gained so much clarity as a human being these last few months but especially these last few weeks. I feel in tune with my body, and it’s such an amazing feeling. Also a bit more in tune with what I want this space to be for, I miss sharing as much as I had a few months back + being apart of the Instagram community. Stepping back and relieving the pressures I was putting on myself was needed and it helped bring me to a clearer vision of what I intentionally want & need to share✨(hopefully some people have stuck around to listen)
I hope 2019’s been treating everyone great❣️
i'm feeling angry today. don't feel like sharing why right now, but i could not for the life of me fall asleep last night! not gonna lie--part of this was due to that freaking apple fiber tummy ache 🍏😂 what do you do when you're irritated or angry? does a little midday work week pick me up snack do the trick? i think 2019 might be the year of homemade coconut butter cups, instead of energy balls, so stay tuned for my perfected recipe soon! wishing you all a good wednesday🙏
After a tough CrossFit class with all the wall balls and deadlifts 🤢 I was absolutely starving! This is pea pasta again, king prawns, tender stem broccoli, spinach and tomato and red pepper stir in sauce.. pea pasta is definitely my favourite alternative. It cooks so well and has 15g protein in a 75g portion which is a bonus! #ms #msawareness #rrms #multiplesclerosis #healingwithfood #msstrong #msfit #crossfit
What’s a wifey to do when her hubby is told no more dairy ever and he’s sad about not being able to eat my desserts?
Well, I’ll tell ya! She puts her other baking plans on hold and creates a keto coconut cream pie recipe for him.
I hope it turns out. So far so good!
It’s HARD baking keto and dairy free 😂
Overnight blueberry steel-cut oats. It has steel-cut oats, water, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, sea salt, coconut oil, chocolate protein powder, dried apricots, fresh blueberries, walnuts, and almond milk.
Vegetables wash day!
Thankful I am able to do this for my family. It does take time. From the local farmers market, to get everything in my car. Bringing all the bags inside the house, with quick break. I started to wash all the fruits of some of the fruits on this table. Washing fruits kind of easy. Vegetables, the greens are more time-consuming. You know this brings me joy, I am fortunate to do this. I am able to use my mind, my soul and my hands. Must of all my family will enjoy everything. The downsides of it, in 3 days, I have to do it all over again. 🤷🏽♀️
Day 5 💕 Liver Rescue 369
I had a few gentle emotional purges last night...followed by a very intense dream that I can only remember snippets of. It was about my healing journey and some of my more embarrassing symptoms had all come back 😳 and this morning I felt lighter. I’m definitely letting go of something.
I was being hard on myself and feeling overwhelmed with all I wanted to accomplish yesterday, including the mountain of laundry and the sink full of dirty dishes, that it resulted in my thoughts turning to negativity and my mind traveling to my illness and how it feels like it took parts of my life away. That alone can be frustrating and infuriating. Now that I’m feeling well, I’m trying so hard to make up for lost time sometimes, that I forget to practice tremendous #compassion
for myself. But this is part of my journey and these are my lessons in boundaries and expectations of myself (and letting go of that person completely). I always find that when emotions come up like this (and detoxing can and will bring up trapped emotions. For real. 🙌🏻) they are serving my highest purpose and I should really check into what my beliefs are surrounding it. I have faith that the other side of it brings growth and healing. This helps me get through the discomfort so much faster and today I feel motivated, creative and excited. 💕 The colors of my #liverrescuesmoothie
alone were enough to bring a little more sunshine into my day. ☺️ Letting go is a powerful medicine.
I’m working through this cleanse with awareness, and allowing faith, not fear, to guide me. So, have faith in your healing today and breathe into whatever comes up for you and live in it for the moment so you can let it go. Faith is absolutely a shining beacon to get you through. ☀️🙏🏻💗
All these mineral salts (& glucose)! 😅 Let’s see what day 5 brings for my healing. ♥️🥬🥗🍌🍎🍋🥒

Happy 🐫🐪 Day!
I have Wednesdays off, so I spend a part of my day meal prepping for the rest of the week. When I first started eating a restricted diet, I would cook one meal at a time. It required more time and effort than I could spare!😮

If you are new to an anti-inflammatory diet, try planning out several days worth of meals at a time. I promise it’s worth it!😄
Here’s an example of a loaded bowl that I had prepped in advance!🥗🍠🥦🥩🍳🍋

I hate the snow. I mean I love looking at it. It’s beautiful ❄️, but I can’t stand being out in it. Last week I totaled my car on the side of a mountain thanks to the ice. Luckily I’m okay, but I’m even more motivated now to stay inside during bad weather. It’s suppose to snow all weekend here, so this morning I grabbed a few last minutes items to get me through the rest of the week and weekend. Lots of produce, sauerkraut, kombucha, and bone broth. How do you food prep for winter weather? 🌱
On my plate: Chicken drumstick, roasted cauliflower, carrots, broccoli, and red onions with steamed spinach. #tailoredeating #roastedveggies #spinach
One of the best ways to enhance digestion and movement of food through your system to is move your body.
Ayurveda recommends taking a 15-20 minutes walk after meals to help with digestion.
Interestingly, studies have also shown that exercise, whether after meals or not, increases the amount of glucose transporters present on your cells.
This means that you have more shuttles on your cells to take in the carbohydrates from your meal to be used as energy. And if you’re walking, your actively using up that glucose (carbs), meaning there is less left over to be stored as fat.
You’re also lowering your blood glucose, which is always a good idea for a myriad of reasons I won’t get into here.
While more glucose for energy, and less glucose in the blood is great news for everybody, it’s wonderful news for people with diabetes or any type of insulin resistance.
And yes, even those with insulin resistance receive an increased uptake in glucose from exercise.
So stop looking at your instagram and go take a walk! 😊

Wellness Wednesday tip
No filter needed.
No makeup today.
I get asked all the time why I use Young Living Essential oils.
Well here’s one reason.
I like healthy skin.
There are so many beauty products on the market that have toxic chemicals in them.
If I am going to eat right and exercise, I definitely don’t want to put toxic stuff on my skin.
(Our skin is a carrier not a barrier)
A couple of drops of Frankincense in my safe moisturizer every morning is how I know that I am putting more good stuff on and in my body.
Be your own wellness advocate.
Know what’s going on and in your body.

What a delightful way to prepare for sleep with this delicious super simple bedtime snack. Use ripe bananas only. Break apart a ripe banana, (when they have freckles) slice a 1/2 mango and drizzle liberally with raw honey. The glucose from the fruits and raw honey help the liver while fasting all night with getting a good nights sleep. If you have #fruitfear
please check out the great news on why you never want to skip out on the wonderful fruits on this earth by looking up the blog and podcast from @medicalmedium
“Fruit Fear” Here are some excerpts from the blog “Fruit is actually the most important food to eat when healing from disease; and yet many people are avoiding it intentionally because they have fallen prey to fruit fear propaganda, unaware that they are hurting their health by avoiding fruit.” “The reason this issue is so important is because fruit is in fact the most important food group to consume in order to protect you and your loved ones from chronic illness and a lifetime of unnecessary suffering. As I will explain further below, fruit not only prevents illness, it slows down aging, kills off pathogens, and heals our bodies on a cellular level. When we are told to fear fruit, we are essentially being told to avoid the very thing that will bring us the most life. There is so much misinformation surrounding fruit that is essential to debunk for the sake of yours and your family’s health and well-being. “ #fruit #fruitislife #medicalmedium #medicalmediumcommunity #healingfoods #healingwithfood #getit #quickrecipes #sleepaids #restfulsleep #yummy #deliciousrecipe #bedtimesnack #plantbasedfood #plantbasedhealing #mango #bananalover

This week’s topic is “The Case Against Keto”.
We dive deep into 5 big arguments AGAINST keto and how you can disarm the critics with information rather than misinformation!
You can find the latest article at trinakrug.com or if you prefer to listen, it is episode 32 of The Keto Living Podcast!
Last year was a year of discipline for me. You won’t grow or heal unless you know how to discipline yourself. It’s not complicated, it’s just constantly showing up everyday, believing that one day your gonna conquer it. That was me last year. Constantly struggling, constantly in pain, tired of talking about it, but I kept choosing to believe, that I was going to be free of it. My sickness doesn’t define me, but its transformed me into the better version of me. We all go through hardship, it’s all about what you believe about yourself. Do you believe that you can? That your strong enough, brave Enough, smart enough? Do you know that it’s ok to feel discouraged, defeated, frustrated, but it’s what you do with those feelings that counts. Don’t let those emotions or struggles define you. Believe in yourself! You have one life. Live it, face your fears, do things that you don’t think you can, take care of your body! If you look back on your life in 30 years..will their be things that you wished you had done differently? You are never to old, or to young to start today. Live your life, fight for it, believe in yourself. You CAN do it!
Fun fact: I lost some of my hair a year ago and I was desperate to get it back. So I made a year goal to not use any heat on my hair and no products that weren’t 100% natural. Now my hair is twice as Long and twice as thick. So you see your goals could be as small as this or as big as my chronic sickness that I had to overcome. It’s your life, you get to decide what you want it to be. No one else can make that decision for you.
Anyone else here a self-help junkie? I seriously can’t help myself. If you don’t hear from me in a while, chances are I’m heads down in one of these... (swipe right).⠀
What are some of your favorite books?
We all know diets don’t work 🤷🏽♀️, but did you know that weight gain typically has less to do with the amount of food you’re eating and more to do with your imbalanced hormones? It starts with stress—from things we’re aware of like work and relationships—to things we might not be aware of, like underlying infections, heavy metals and too many toxins in the bloodstream.
Your adrenal glands are responsible for the production of over 50 hormones, and the hormones produced by the adrenals make ALL of the other hormones in your body. One of these super important hormones is cortisol. Stress upregulates cortisol production in your adrenal glands, as your body goes into panic mode...on autopilot. Your fat switch turns on, and all other hormones are impacted.
Example: an imbalanced cortisol rhythm can actually stop your body from absorbing/using thyroid hormone. So even if you’ve had thyroid labs that show your TSH levels are on par, it’s likely that thyroid hormone isn’t being converted into its usable form in your body. This is why so many people with all the signs of hypothyroidism are told again and again by conventional MDs that their thyroids are just fine...and why stress is often at the root of it.
So if your hormones are making you fat, how do you fix them? The first step: YOUR DIET. However, it’s not about how much you eat or cutting or burning calories. Balancing your hormones is about WHAT you eat and when you eat it. Consuming healthy fats and clean protein and complex carbs in the right amounts at the right times of day. Eating foods that help rather than hurt your liver. Sound complicated? It can be, but I’ll be sharing ways to simplify it [A LOT ✨] in the coming weeks!#wellandrooted

My heart is breaking 💔
We only get one body so please love it and care for it by Getting back to basics 🙏 this is a real talk post..... this isn’t about me. It’s about what I’ve gone through and I’ve seen a lot .... the more I am spreading awareness and hear from so many people the more my heart breaks. This is why my mission is so important 💥 I want to wrap everyone up and snap my fingers and get everyone well! Getting better/ healthier has been made into some crazy process of pills and this and that. For some for now -yes it’s needed..... but you can also do other things to help your body ❤️
Getting back to basics meaning.. get your body into balance- homeostasis, change how you are eating, change how you are thinking, get that mind connected to your body, change the mindset, be an informed patient..... being an informed patient is so needed because not every doctor knows everything and every patient is different. Yes, we go to doctors for answers, I did that for 17 plus years... more of these doctors have never had or have what their patients have so they don’t understand —I was semi informed but not to the extent I am now. I did and took what they told me and it was killing me... all the pills and therapies weren’t getting to the root... it was treating symptoms ... that is temporary. Plus the fact the pills.. hormone disrupters 🙈 which is destroying the immune system... I know it because I have lived it and found another way... a way that works- and no it’s not some magic potion or shake or pill— And now I’m here to help you.... Are you feeling at a lose with getting better and feeling good? Let’s chat and I can share everything with you on what has helped me to be where I am today 😘 It’s just a chat ~ no charge 🥰
🌱 I've always dreamed of our fridge looking like this, we've gotten close before, but it's hard to buy/find Organic fruits & veggies here in San Antonio. There are two main reasons for that; 1) it's hard to find fruits that aren't molded, rotting, or have a fungus infection (almost all mangos). 2) There is not enough of the product, that's good and healthy, to buy in bulk. *
✨🍏FRUIT TIP: Make sure you look into your fruit and ways that it could be carrying an infection that could be transferred to you, also make sure you know how rapidly mold grows from one fruit to the next just by direct contact. So, making sure that you are thoroughly checking your fruit, before you get home, is important! 🍎 *
🌿We got lucky this grocery trip around and snagged an entire fridge full, took us two hours, and 4 stores to find it all, but we did it!! I'm so happy to open our fridge and see the Rainbow 🌈 *
🥗The saying "Eat the Rainbow" means more to me now than it ever has; it's about sustaining my way of life, it's about having all the support in your fridge just flourishing with color, and vibrancy, it's about feeding my soul, it's about feeling the power of these magical fruits & veggies coursing through my body as I ingest them, and most of all it's about feeling my body heal from the inside out and watching my transformation happen. That's what "Eat the Rainbow" means to me, many may see it as a simple 3 word phrase that comes from your grandma or mother, but not me, that saying speaks to my soul. ✨

💜 Breakfast-- @medicalmedium
Thyroid Healing Smoothie Bowl. Blend 2 cups of mango, 1 banana, handful of spinach/arugula, Aloe Vera gel, 1tsp kelp powder & half a cup coriander.
Mangoes contain a tremendous amount of carotene to restore the spleen and liver, feed the brain, and purge the lymphatic system of viral waste-matter toxins.
Arugula reduces nodules, tumors, and cysts in the thyroid (both cancerous and benign) and helps prevent EBV-related thyroid cancer in the first place. Arugula’s phytochemical compounds enter into the thyroid, rejuvenating tissue there while reducing thyroid scar tissue.
Atlantic sea vegetables (especially dulse and kelp): Just as we put iodine on wounds, the iodine content of Atlantic sea vegetables such as dulse is an antiseptic for the thyroid—when it soaks into the gland, it becomes one of the thyroid’s most powerful fighting mechanisms next to zinc.
Aloe supports the adrenals and draws radiation out of the thyroid. @medicalmedium

Chris’s birthday breakfast! Yes, he only wanted a fruit salad. Out of everything I offered him. (even offered bacon, sausage and pancakes - since we never eat these things and I def. never buy them.) but he didn’t want any of that! 😮 he actually asked for celery juice lol!! Which shocked me to the core! Haha But I talked him out of it since he drinks that all the time lol. When I asked if he wanted a fruit salad he responded by saying, “ ooo yea! Could you make it that special way you make it?! With the mint and lemon?”
So that’s what I did! I made him my “fancy” fruit salad. Ha! Recipe below -
Two handfuls of strawberries
1 honey crisp apple
4 handfuls of blueberries
1 whole fresh lemon juice
Handful of fresh mint leaves (Dice the mint leaves)
The secret ingredient is once it’s been made and put together, you let it sit for 20 min and let all the juices marinate! You def. don’t need any form of sugar. The fruits are sweet enough! 👌🏽 ✨also this is surprisingly filling! .
Fun fact about me: I’m taking photos again, mostly just for me..but sometimes I’m gonna share an image here and there. so what do you think about this fruit salad image?! It may be a little to bright but this is just the way I see life.
