3 KEYS ON TRUSTING YOUR HEART
We are often encouraged to “follow our hearts,” ❤but what does this really mean? It seems that we must feel our way forward, step by step, continually listening and adjusting as we go, learning to trust the heart fully.
🔐KEY 1 - TRUST IT PHYSICALLY:
Place your hand over the center of your chest and imagine that you are directly breathing into and from the depths of your heart area.
🔐KEY 2 - TRUST IT EMOTIONALLY:
► Attune with that deep place in the heart that loves and accepts everything just as it is
► Visualize embracing any parts of yourself that need this love. Hold them in your heart
► Do the same for others—inwardly bless them and wish them well
► Be generous in expressing your heartfelt love in daily life
🔐KEY 3 - TRUST IT SPIRITUALLY:
► Make a deep commitment to live openheartedly. Then work steadily and compassionately toward keeping it.
► Rest in and as the open heart
► Gaze with a spiritually oriented friend
💛Discovering and consciously living by trusting our hearts brings the deepest happiness as human beings 🙏
Is the vegan diet really the "healthiest"?
There have been a few studies that have shown that people who abstain from animal products have better longevity than people that don't. However, this compares a plant-based diet to the “average American diet”, which largely consists of unhealthy processed foods!
Obviously eating a diet that includes more fruits and veggies is better for you than one that doesn't!
But, that does not mean that all animal products are bad for you! As omnivores, humans evolved eating animals AND plants to get the required essential nutrients for our survival.
For this reason, we cannot get all the nutrients that we need from plants! Here are a few nutrients that are omitted or neglected in a plant-based diet:
•Vitamin B12 (only found in animal products): cellular energy production
•Creatine (amino acid found in animals): muscle/brain energy levels
•Carnosine (potent antioxidant): muscle/brain health
•DHA (animal-based Omega 3): Brain/joint health
These nutrients can be satisfied via supplementation, but there are various nutrient-dense animal products that fill these vacancies, and provide balance to a healthy diet.
I strive to eat a well-balanced diet filled with loads of nutrient-dense plant and animal products!
This well-balanced bowl has both healthy plant and animal-based foods! Spring leafy greens, roasted sweet potatoes with coconut oil, roasted broccoli and cauliflower with avocado oil, and grilled chicken breast. Seasoned with Himalayan pink salt, Italian herbs, and drizzled with olive oil!

Caffeine: good or bad?
Both actually! There are benefits and drawbacks of caffeine.
Improve athletic performance
Boost mood and energy
Improve alertness and mental function
Lower risk of type 2 diabetes and improve glycemic control with moderate intake
Some cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s risks with moderate intake
Affects serotonin and dopamine levels
Headaches, shakiness and nausea in some people
Can affect sleep quality
Can induce anxiety, heart beat irregularities, and elevated stress hormone levels
Bottom line: moderate amounts can be beneficial, but if your body doesn’t react well, avoid it!
If my medical training had assigned books like ‘Thyroid Healing,’ there would be far more informed medical doctors in the system. However, when it came to nutrition, we were taught nonsense!😣
The harsh reality is, our healthcare system isn’t interested in truth as much as it’s interested in profit; all at the expense of peoples’ lives. Trusting citizens are seeking healing counsel, but are being prescribed the opposite. Nutritional ignorance in hospitals & doctors’ offices is sending our loved ones prematurely to the grave.💔
I hung up my white coat and left the pharmaceutical monopoly of ‘WEALTHcare;’ God had different plans for me. Last year, those plans involved coming across Anthony William, the @medicalmedium.
After reading all three of his books, it is transparent to see the invaluable resources they are. His books place the power back in our hands. They are self healing guides, providing light fueled information that allows us to surrender ignorant white coat counsel, and tap into the healer within.💫🌟☀️
My own healing journey these past few years has been primarily focused on my mental health. Evolving beyond the depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD was what I felt guided to face first. Now I’m feeling an awakening desire for deeper physical detox, & I’m incredibly grateful for the guidance in Anthony’s books. It’s tremendously inspiring to see how the belief of ONE is sparking belief around the world, lighting the inner flame of global healing.🌎💫🙏🏽
There are no words to express how amazing it feels to WANT TO HEAL, after years of feeling no desire for anything. One plant meal at a time,
joyfully aligned with this divine grind,
it’s ALLLL an abundant blessing!🙌🏽
My simple Chitter prescription is
for us to be our OWN physicians,
by placing our unshakable FAITH
in the limitless potential of Plants
& spiritual SELF Evolution.
Yes, I like my kombucha so much, I dedicate whole posts to it. I have to be honest when I say, my body loves this stuff. I went 2 weeks without it and my digestive system wasn't as happy ... so soon enough I have to start making it myself cause paying as much as I do for it is just ridiculous. So anyone got a Scooby for me?
It's been a minute since I made a green smoothie bowl 🥣 and it was just what I needed on this gorgeous Friday morning 🌞. The sun is shining and I'm feeling pretty amazing 🤗. Just finished my workout and was craving something super refreshing! This lovely bowl contains spinach, frozen broccoli 🥦, fro nana 🍌, pear 🍐, kiwi,🥜 milk 🥛, a scoop of vanilla protein powder and a few ice cubes. Topped with 🍓🍓, more kiwi 🥝 and hemp seeds. Everything I need to keep me fueled up until my next meal! 💪 I'm on a timed nutrition plan so I'm basically eating every 2 hours 👌.....no hunger happening over here! How do you guys stay fueled up during the day?! My fuel used to be copious amounts of coffee ☕ until I learned about proper nutrition and self care. It's all about the journey and I'm loving every second of it!!! Happy Friday friends!! 😚
A late breakfast to start the holiday weekend. Everyone in my house is still fast asleep and I'm sipping a collagen coffee and admiring this ridiculously rich egg that was laid this morning. I went out and gathered fresh arugula greens and flowers from the garden, had local frisee, watercress, and cilantro from Pike Place, tossed in a few cherry tomatoes and a some avocado, and dusted it all in truffle salt. This breakfast salad has my tastebuds happy as can be!
Raise your hand if you need to be "bad"? I do and especially on holidays where everyone is eating out and indulging in treats and fried foods.
Let's be honest with ourselves. No fried foods is a good-thing-for-us food, but let's also be honest: there are ones better than others.
Oils that are liquid at room temperature are not suitable for cooking on high temperatures. they break down in heat that is higher than "low" and become oxidized, or "anti-nutrients".. This means they become harmful and actually damage our bodies.
Saturated fats, like the kind found in coconut oil or palm shortening, are able to tolerate higher heat and don't break down as easily.
And no, smoke point is not the same as oxidization point.
This means that if you are going to be "bad" and eat a chip, then choose the best quality you can find. Personally, I don't eat chips very often: I save them for holidays and traveling and tend to get sick of them if I overindulge. but on weekends like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day, I share a bag with some friends.
sweet potato chips are fried in coconut oil, which is a better choice for your junk food. Now don't lie to yourself: this does not count as a vegetable! It is still "junk food". It is just the best quality junk food I have found.
This weekend, how are you "being bad?" Are you choosing indulgences that reflect that you love yourself? Are they the best qualify treats you can afford? Are they made with real ingredients? Are they made with processed "food products" instead of real foods? Or are they high quality, good ingredients that just taste really good together?

What is food? The primary use of food is to gather, consume, metabolise and utilise energy. Some foods contain more energy (calories) than others, whilst some contain more nutrients than others. Therefore, put simply, salad and pizza are the same thing. Neither are good or bad, both are neutral. The only important factor to consider is how they fit your overall diet and lifestyle. This includes overall calorie/nutrient consumption and overall activity level. At no point should emotions or guilt come into it...unless it’s happiness. -
When it comes to feeling healthy, having energy and maintaining the body composition you want, you probably want to analyse this in a little more detail. The salad (and most whole foods) contain more fibre, vitamins and minerals than most processed, lower fibre foods - like pizza... or cola bottles 🤤... This results in a greater level of satiety if your diet is based mainly on whole foods. Again no need for any stress, emotion or guilt here.
Unless you’re trying to gain weight, it makes sense to, over time, eat a higher volume of these whole, nutrient dense, filling foods which are lower in calories, compared to a small volume of high calorie food which may not satisfy your needs and possibly result in the need for more energy. But this doesn’t mean that calorie dense, processed foods are bad. You just have to consume them in moderation and awareness of what they represent. -
At the end of the day, salad, pizza and all foods are means to an end. It’s up to you to decide what regularity of food type/portion size will benefit your goal and allow you to enjoy eating. Instead of getting unnecessarily emotional about eating pizza, try to think methodically instead - “This pizza is x calories... how can I fit it into my largely nutritious diet regularly.” This is a much healthier mindset which is far more useful, whilst being free from unnecessary guilt. Be happy when you eat salad or pizza, knowing that either will support your goal 🤜🤛. -

Happy Friday everyone! We’re welcoming this long weekend smoothie style 😎☀️🥤 If you’re looking for some powerful antioxidants to kick start your weekend then look no further than this smoothie! ☝🏻👏🏻 We combined a frozen banana, @siggisdairy
full fat yogurt, @vitalproteins
collagen peptides, frozen spinach and shredded carrots, unsweetened shredded coconut, and TONS of cinnamon and cacao powder!! (We love @navitasorganics
organic cacao powder). This combination pretty much turns into a thick, creamy chocolate shake except the benefits are 💯🍫😋 Did you know that a serving of cacao powder has 102mg of magnesium, while a serving of spinach only has 24mg 😱 Magnesium can help to relieve constipation, strengthen bones, relieve PMS symptoms, help with anxiety, panic attacks and stress, and help to increase energy levels 🤩 Seriously what an amazing mineral! We’re headed off to San Francisco for the weekend. Who else is headed somewhere fun for memorial weekend? ✈️🚙 #neRD2be

The long awaited casual Friday is here with treats! While I welcome all kinds of goodies in my vegan lifestyle, many times I pay attention to size or quantity. • It may be known to you as “portion control” but for me it sounds too restrictive so I call it quantity. Vegan treats are healthy, tasty but full of fructose. Small slices or cookies are recommended. You will not feel the same sugar rush as with sucrose but three vegan cupcakes still have a lot of extra calories. I like to have a small treat with a cup of black coffee, dark roast preferably. • The bitter taste of the coffee combined with a fruity, sweet, homemade bar seems to balance both tastes in a way that doesn’t make me reach out to another treat. It’s also great pre-workout snack for runners or HIIT trainings. What is your favorite Friday treat?
Everyday is a good day for waffles, am I right or am I right? 🕺🏻
Whenever I make waffles I like to cook up a big batch & store the extras in the freezer. I love being able to grab a waffle & toss it in the toaster on the go! 🏃🏻♀️
I made these waffles using chickpea flour (my BFF.) The base requires only 4️⃣ ingredients, they are high in protein, fiber, & happen to be GF + vegan 👈🏻
I also split the batter, making half sweet & half savory because I can never choose between the two! 🙈
2 cups organic chickpea flour (I get mine on amazon)
1 cup @threetreesfoods
unsweetened almond milk
1 cup water
2 tbsp melted coconut oil (or oil of choice)
1 tsp pink salt
For the sweet waffles add:
1 tbsp organic maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
-Grease your waffle iron with coconut oil (or avocado oil) & pour batter into skillet. Cook until slightly crispy on the outside. Should make roughly 8 waffles.
I topped mine with organic peanut butter, smashed blueberries & @larkellenfarm
*To freeze, let waffles cool completely & store in an airtight container in the freezer.
Happy Friday, friends!✨
Happy Friday guys!! Okay so here’s the deets on what I’ve been up to lately.
I just recently quit my carpentry job that I had for about 3/4 years, to take up a internship at a basketball facility where they train kids, college athletes, and professional basketball players from around the world!
Making the decision to quit my job was super hard and took 1-2 years of patience and preparation in order to be able to even afford this internship and figure if I was ready to go all in on my passion of basketball!
Been going at it for about a month and a half now and it’s been going pretty good. I’m learning how to build relationships and learning how it feels to start at the bottom again! Also learning on how it feels to have everything on me and how there is a sense of urgency at hand that I have to execute on. But what I’m really focusing on for myself is learning how to enjoy the process of it all and really take in moments!
So yeah that’s for the most part what’s been going on with me! And don’t worry I’m still sticking to my meal prepping and what not! I’ve been trying different products and can’t wait to post about them for you guys😎
You know what you need to make a good nut butter? 🤔
… yup. Just nuts. And MAYBE a hint of sea salt.
You know what you DON’T need?
➡️ Palm, Soybean, or Canola Oil
But how many brands of nut butter include those unnecessary ingredients? I’m not entirely sure, but based on what I’ve personally seen, it sure seems like a LOT.
And guys, it isn’t just nut butter to check here. Last week when I was grocery shopping, only ONE out of EIGHT different brands of beef broth I checked had zero added sugars (Giant Eagle for the win right here 👏🏼) ONE! That’s INSANE!
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE sugar, but only when it’s WHERE IT BELONGS. This means that I’m totally fine with the sugar in my chocolate, or cookies, or ice cream. I have some kind of dessert almost EVERY NIGHT. But what I DON’T LOVE is when I try and shop for beef broth to make a mushroom gravy and there’s 5g or more of added sugar in a carton. Beef broth shouldn’t be sweet! WHY?! 🙅🏽♀️
I’m not saying that you need to become an added sugar maniac and refuse to eat any foods that include the stuff, but I AM challenging you to become more aware of where sugar could be sneaking into your diet 🤓 Switching to natural, unsweetened nut butters and nut milk is a great way to start. I promise they taste just as yummy 😋
Have you ever been shocked to find sugar in a food? Let me know which below! ☺️

In case you needed a reminder, here it is! At Bonafide Provisions, we cool our broth before it goes into our BPA and EA-free bags, and then it’s frozen so it stays fresh...just like you would do if making bone broth at home. We don’t make our bone broth shelf-stable on purpose, and we won’t compromise our beliefs for the sake of adding our product to grocery store shelves. Find us in the freezer section and taste the BP difference! #NourishToFlourish
for the win!!! Juicing is the only way I can “eat” fresh vegetables. I love juicing and going to juice stores. BUT I also like not spending $$$ on healthy choices. I traded my bestie a family photo session for her juicer and thankfully, now I can juice at home!! My juicing staples are :.
Hydrating Detox Greens : 2 cucumbers, ginger root, whole lemon, & spinach. 🥒 🍋 .
Go With the Flow Tummy Tamer: red cabbage, ginger root, whole orange, turmeric, and pineapple. 🍊🍍 .
What are your “go to” healthy choices? #juicing #nutrientdense #detox #healthyliving #wholefoodhealing
I’ve been trying to save my coffee consumption for the weekends. It’s so good when that first sip touches my soul but I don’t love the way it makes me feel, plus I’m treating my morning cup as an act of self care. I figure that if I can take 3 minutes in the morning to make myself a warm mug of something good for me, then I’m setting myself up for a better day. Moms will tell themselves anything to feel better about taking a few minutes for themselves, AMIRIGHT!? This mornings cup is what I’m calling a Turbo Golden Milk Latte and yes, it’s as delicious as it sounds.
For two servings, blend 1 can of full fat coconut milk, 2 tsp ground turmeric, 2 heaping tsp Ceylon cinnamon, a pinch of cardamom, a thumb of grated ginger, a pinch of finely ground black pepper, 1 tsp @foursignmatic
10 mushroom blend & a packet of cordyceps, 1 tsp maca and 1 1/2 cups of hot water. I blend it in my @vitamix
for 2(ish) minutes on medium/high and top with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
The goddesses have been served dinner!!!
