My 20 minute dinner tonight. Rice and quinoa with turmeric and a few spices, a handful of spinach, tofu and yellow squash fried in a little bit of coconut oil, and broccoli and some leftover asparagus that I tossed into the pan at the end with some water to steam them. I wizzed up a sauce with some peanut butter, juice of half an orange, some tamari, maple syrup, a nub of ginger and a squeeze of lemon. So good I make this sauce all the time rn. It was delicious! #vegan #quickvegandinner #lowfodmap #gf #queer
SWEAT *really is* IS THE SECRET SAUCE 💪🏼 Pretty dang excited to share that in September we will be launching the 3rd ROUND of this 4 day per week program I’ve been doing with HUNDREDS of others women from around the world!! Side note: how is it already almost September?!! 🙈
If you’re ready to get back into a fall routine & to fall back into taking care of YOU in a super do-able way (I’m talkin’ 30 minute workouts & super balanced eating here babe🍷👌🏼) & you want to be a part of this game changing movement, then drop a comment, DM me or fill out the link in my bio to get on the list!! ✨
So, today didn't go as planned, and whilst I was happily tending to #clients #nails
, the washing machine had other ideas and leaked allover the floor, then I opened the fridge to prepare lunch and a hinge snapped on the door 🙄. We changed our plans for the rest of the day, feeling it would be safer to stay home, just in case. Anyway, my #selfcare
usually focuses around the kitchen, so to #destress
I set about making stuff, so I apologise now for the spam. A new batch of #homemade #sunbutter
which has turned out really well and smoother than the last one, and #grainfree #fishcakes
for dinner. #glutenfree #dairyfree #wheatfree #soyafree #nutfree #eatclean #nutrition #healingjourney #sugarfree #lowfodmap #sibofriendly #nutritousfoods #sibodiet #healingdiet #selfcare #homemade

Happy birthday to this dime piece. You’re genuine, fiercely loyal, and the kindest person I know. The only thing you do better than sister-ing is aunt-ing. We love and miss you times a million.

Not sure what to order when you go out for a meal? I’ve found that simple grilled fish/ seafoods is a great option 👌🏻👌🏻 just make sure it isn’t seasoned and no sauces are added! Recently I’ve become obsessed with octopus 🤤 give it a try!
"The JOY we feel has little to do with the CIRCUMSTANCES of our lives and EVERYTHING to do with the FOCUS of our lives." 🧡
HAPPY HAPPY Friday sweet sisterhood. ✌🏽
Rest in the TRUTH today that you are beautiful, strong, capable, worthy, and blessed. 🙌🏽
You are not enough, because you will never be, do, or have “enough” of what society tells you that you need——but the great news today is that you don’t have to be ENOUGH! 🧡
We live in a world where we are constantly told to do more of this, or less of that, to be perfect, to do xyz and your whole life will be fulfilled, but there’s no such thing as complete fulfillment long term in any of those avenues.
But there IS joy. And lots of it! Check your heart and your mind today as you approach this week. Are you ready to embrace joy and center your heart and focus on Who and what’s most important? Now THAT is fulfilling!
Plus.....with my mommy go go juice 🥤, I just feel like today’s going to be a great day to kick some booty! 😆 #happinessproject #joyseeker #anxietywarrior #teachermommy #balancedlifeproject
Thanks to @honeybunsbakery
for pointing out it's National Afternoon Tea week (apparently it's a thing!). Seemed a perfect opportunity to share my the incredible afternoon tea I had in The New Forest! Gluten free, low-lactose and tummy-friendly, they went above and beyond to make sure I enjoyed every moment of this feast!
New blog post up from my fantastic experience at Moorhill House Hotel! (Link in bio) ❤️
I grew up eating porridge for breakfast and it’s a habit I’ve continued especially as a great breakfast for sensitive tummies. My toppings vary but I find bananas and blueberries are a lovely combination. I make my porridge with water and then serve it with almond milk but you could also make the porridge with almond/rice or lactose free milk if you prefer🥣🍶
For dinner tonight I’m having the vegan aubergine curry from my blog. I love this meal so much, it’s delicious and pretty healthy too! If you fancy giving it a try this weekend, click on the link in my bio and search for ‘aubergine’ 🍆
Oh hey Friday 😏
I’m mean, pretty much every day is a Friday when you get to create your own schedule, but the whole vibe just feels different when it’s ACTUALLY Friday 🎉 This Friday I am thankful for : ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎉Legs that didn’t give out on me on my during that brutal sweat sesh that just went down ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎉Being able to work from my phone so I can work while I’m on the go running errands today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎉These new headbands that @maventhread
sent me. Literally the first ones that fit my small head 🤣#teamlivefit
Fredag! Grilltajm! Jag har ätit FODMAP-fritt i en vecka. Eller... fem dagar i alla fall. Maken frågade lite försynt ”eh, kan vi få vanlig kryddning på vårt kött?” Och ja såklart kan de få den jättegoda kryddblandningen som vi älskar på sitt kött. Jag blandade ihop lite annat; paprika, gurkmeja, chili, asafoetida... Det blir säkert gott det åxå. .
Friday! Time for bbq. My husband asked with some care if it was possible for the rest of the family to have our favourite spice mix. And of course they can! I made my own spice mix with chilli, paprika, turmeric and asafoetida. Guess which one is mine:) #lowfodmapdiet #lowfodmap #fodmap #fodmapfritt
BAKE OFF WINNER!!!
I mean not quite but one day ay 👏🏼
Although I did win today’s blogger bake off event hosted by @creativenaturesuperfoods
Such a lovely day with some gorgeoussss girlies! Oh and @themedicinalchef
SO we used the @creativenaturesuperfoods
new all natural baking mixes, mine was the brownie mix which I then filled with a marshamallow fluff, and drizzled with a salted caramel sauce and a chocolate ganache (swipe for the ultimate 🤤 factor)
I mean just call me Mary Berry 🤗
💩Does your gut agree with fibre? For many people with IBS, the answer is simply ‘no!’
😞They find that high fibre meals, like salads, bloat them and make them feel fatigued. This is super frustrating as a ‘healthy’ meal should make you feel fab right?
🧐So what to do? Live off low fibre foods and avoid IBS symptoms or just ‘put up with it?’
🙋♀️Well why don’t I give you a solution for getting fibre back into your diet without ‘putting up’ with symptoms?
👩When you increase your fibre intake, going for a huge portion all at once is not the one guys - you will get symptoms! Hell, even people without IBS sometimes getting bloated after huge fibre intakes.
🤓So, how to do it? Well, firstly get an idea of what you are having on an average day - track your intake of fibre using Myfitness pal. Don’t change anything over this time, just track it.
🤓Then, make a realistic goal to increase your fibre slowly - say 2-3g / day. This way you can increase your fibre to your own ‘tolerance’ level. 30g a day is what the general population is advised to have, but just see how you get on as this is a ‘general’ target.
🍇🥕🥒🍅🍌Foods to opt for are carrots, peppers, golden linseed, oats, berries, green bananas, tomatoes and lettuce - these are generally all high fibre foods BUT low FODMAP, therefore least likely to cause you issues.
👉What I find with my clients also is that they are able to tolerate more and more fibre as they tackle their IBS. This makes it easier to get in antioxidants, but also to control their weight.
‼️💦Don’t forget to drink enough fluid alongside this!

DISCLAIMER: Not DELICIOUS but definitely GUTSY. Getting a small bowl X-ray today to make sure my intestines and bowls all function like they should. Doctors have been worried that my insides are all tangled up so this is the final test to confirm or deny that theory. My road to a healthy gut is not paved with only beautiful pictures of tasty food. It also includes lots of work with doctors, being poked and prodded, sleepless/painful nights, long frustrating days, isolating feelings, lots of anxiety, sad thoughts, complete lifestyle changes and most of all a ton of hard work and determination. Really hoping this is the last test I have to do for a while! #DeliciouslyGutsy

I feel like I go through phases of wanting savoury or sweet in the morning and right now I’ve been loving savoury breakfasts! I like to eat eggs for my source of protein and then pair it with some toast (today I put cream cheese on it which isn’t lactose free but I usually don’t have an issue if I’m just eating small amounts) and then I usually always have a piece of fruit in the mornings cause I loveee fruit!! Today I had a nectarine and it was super yummy! 🙌🏻

Let’s talk about a couple things that don’t get talked about very often after someone loses a significant amount of weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- stretch marks...yep, these don’t just happen after you have a baby! I have them on my boobs and my love handle area. - Cellulite. It’s like no matter how hard you work, it’s still there. - Food guilt & weight gain obsession. As much as it KILLS me to admit, this is a HUGE struggle for me. After a cheat meal, a glass of wine, etc, I’m always thinking to myself “great, now I’m gonna gain all of my weight back” my jeans feel tight one day, I think I’m gaining my weight back.. I’m up a pound, i think I’m gaining my weight back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These things HAPPEN after losing a lot of weight, but one thing that helps me is reading personal development 📖 it reminds you that no matter what, you are beautiful and you are strong. All of these little things that we worry about don’t matter in the grand scheme of life.
If you also struggle with these things, remember that there are things that matter so much more than all of this 💗#teamlivefit
Quiet time is rejuvenating!!! I brain dumped all the things I want to accomplish today as the kids are with their grandparents for the day ❤️
Catch up day calms the mind !! My coffee cup was replaced with my cafe latte for the day and I’m getting down with my to do list !! 😜
Busy mamas , what do you like to do on your “days off”?! #balancedlifeproject #tiredmamas #cafelatteart #coffeelover
Things don't always go as you expected/wanted 🤷🏻
I was soooo looking forward to my legday but I tapped out after my first set lol. I started my period today (if this is tmi for you, i'm not even sorry. This is happens/has happened to every healthy girl/woman) and at first I didn't want to work out (you know, cramps and stuff) but I pushed trough since moving usually helps with the pain.
I was already frustrated when my mom kept sending messages (I don't blame her by any means) while I was trying to work out. Then my weight plates weren't doing what I wanted so I just got more frustrated. When I was getting ready for my hip thrusts the barbell and foam thingy (to protect my hips from getting bruised lol) were not sitting the way I wanted and I just decided to stop. Working out is my moment away from everything and a way to de-stress. Getting irritated doesn't help with getting focused and de-stressed.
So this one goes out to my hormones for fucking up my work out lol.
(Happy to know I'm not pregnant tho)
Tomorrow I'll try again and Sunday I'll stuff my face with all the food at @vegansummerfest
GUYS TODAY IS AN EXCITING DAY!! Derek and I are FINALLY done with our 5 months of the lowfodmap diet. This diet is not only super restrictive but we have to eat every meal at home. That means LOTS of cooking and not much socializing. We are headed to Vegas today to celebrate! This is another big thing because Vegas is SOO outside my comfort zone. We are seeing Calvin Harris tonight which means a super late night, something that would normally stress me out. I’ve been prepping all week by just thinking of all the positives and trying to let go of the worry. Wish me luck and any restaurant recs are appreciated cause we will be doing LOTS of eating! Happy Friday babes #alexcurtiswellness
The reality of this salad bowl is that everything came straight from Whole Food’s salad bar, and buried under the lettuce is even more sweet potato and chicken. Honestly have fallen in love with their salad bar when I’m in a rush or haven’t had time to meal prep yet. So here’s to the weekend and wishing I could have this again today! I hope you guys have a great weekend. Tomorrow I’m heading into Boston with my cousins and then on Sunday I’m helping out @nocow
at the Wanderlust Festival!! Might be looking to try out a new restaurant in Boston on Sunday night so if you have any good gf recommendations let me know!
