Switching things up today-combining hot and cold foods to the morning meal and what an amazing dish it turned out to be!
Even during my Interior Decorating years, I was all about “Use what you already have” and grew up with the “Don’t be wasteful” ideology and it’s served me well, I think!
I finally finished up the rest of the black soybeans (chill, keto police-it’s totally a Ketogenic choice)and the salad 🥗 that remained from stuffed poblanos night (P.S., be sure to add daikon radish to your salad-it adds a nice crunch and crispness that lasts amazingly well). I added some bacon (which I meal prepped yesterday 👍🏻), some steamed zucchini, an egg, and topped it off with some pepper flakes & pepper sauce🤗 🌶 and finally some “Grey Brittany Sea Salt”-which is SO GOOD!
Living with HMS can be super painful in my muscles and joints-finding ways to put trace minerals into my diet is essential for day to day life. I usually use pink Himalayan salt, but was feeling impulsive at the store and decided to give the grey a go 😎👉🏻👉🏻. Excerpt from Seasalt.com:.
“Grey salt is a “moist,” unrefined sea salt, usually found in the Brittany region of France’s Atlantic coast. Its natural, light-grey color comes from the minerals absorbed from the clay lining the salt ponds. The salt is collected by hand using wooden tools and methods dating back to the Iron Age. Grey salt has gained great fame in the mainstream culinary world in the last few years. It is available in coarse grain (the perfect finishing or pinching size), stone ground fine (ideally used at the table instead of processed salts)”

Every year in October, I see all the pink breast cancer awareness shirts and swag and I get SO frustrated and angry.
You see, all sorts of makeup companies come out and make special edition items that donate money to breast cancer foundations. Seems noble, right?
THE MAJOR PROBLEM IS that if companies really cared about preventing cancer and helping you be healthier, they would stop using chemicals that are known to cause cancer and known to disrupt your hormones.
Hear me out... companies all over the United States are allowed to basically use any chemicals they want in cosmetics, personal care, and home cleaning products. There are almost no regulations to protect you. Companies even go so far as to use harmful chemicals and just label them as "fragrance", which is a legal way to avoid disclosing that you’ve actually used terrible hormone disrupting chemicals.
The only real way to protect yourself is to either spend hundreds of hours reading labels or making your own stuff (and who has time for that?), or find a company that is trustworthy and on a mission to eliminate that nonsense from your homes and that you can trust everything they make. I've chosen the latter.
Let’s not just donate money and pay lip service to preventing cancer in October. Let’s actually force a change snd vote with our wallets for products that help prevent the thing in the first place.

Immune-Boosting, Gluten-free, Bone Broth Ramen. I made this ramen to kick Sean’s cold to the curb, so it’s got medicinal amounts of garlic & ginger, which can help boost the immune response & shorten the duration of infections. Not everyone can tolerate garlic & ginger, but if you can, they may help you stay well during the cold & flu season. I’ve also been giving him Oregano Oil, and Honey, Lemon, Ginger Tea with Astragalus (I’m taking this stuff too, just to be safe). What’s your go-to holistic remedy for kicking, or avoiding colds? I hope you’re all having a beautiful day. Here’s the recipe for today’s ramen 👇
2 Scoops @mynaturalforce
Turmeric Bone Broth,
2 Cups Filtered Water,
2-3 TBS Coconut Aminos,
1 TBS Fish Sauce,
1 Tsp to 1 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar (I used a full TBS),
1 Tsp @_healthforcesuperfoods
Mycoforce Immunity Powder (a blend of medicinal mushrooms),
Black Pepper to taste. .
Combine ingredients in a medium pot on the stove & bring to a boil, stirring continuously. I garnished the ramen with 1 Tsp raw fresh ginger, 1 large garlic clove, & lemon. You can add these ingredients to the broth while it’s cooking for a less intense flavor.
I used @lotusfoods
ramen. Cook your noodles al dente. Drain & rinse them, then add them to your ramen bowl. Pour the boiling broth over them & serve with the following:
Steamed Bok Choy,
Pasture Raised Egg (boiled for 7 minutes then placed into an ice bath),
Japanese Seven Spice,
Hot Sauce (if you can handle the heat 😉🔥).
Kkakdugi ( cubed daikon kimchi ) pre fermentation. -
The paste is a nice blend of gochugaru pepper, Asian pear, garlic and ginger) when fermentation happens the brine will soak in to the cubes and make an explosion of flavour in each bite !
Today I had my first cucumber of the season! There are many to come from now on.
✨We tried out a special chia seed pudding flavor this morning: Chocolate Peanut Butter 😍 and by we, I mean I made it and the kids ate it 😂 - 2 tablespoon Chia seeds
- 1 cup Coconut milk
- 1 healing tbsp Peanut butter
- 1 tbsp Cacao - 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
Blend all together in blender (blending the chia seeds gives it a smoother texture and helps it to set faster. Just takes a few minutes). Top with cacao nibs, granola, or fruit. ✨
here is one of my quick PLANT BASED PROTIEN BOWLS😝💓🙌🏻 including our star tempeh (fermented soy beans), cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, sauerkraut , olive oil massaged kale, pumpkin seeds & some balsamic glaze .
When i plan my meals my first focus is on NUTRIENTS and also having a balance of FATS, PROTIEN and CARBOHYDRATES 😛💓 thats pretty much it! I don’t have many hard and fast rules when it comes to my eating style, I just eat whats moderately quick to make and will give me everything i need to feel satisfied, full and nutrient dense! This bowl will give me what I need to survive my long days🌱👀
Whats one quick and easy meal you’ve been making yourself lately 🤷🏼♀️ do tell me⬇️ in the comments please!!
monday is finally here!!! normally i wouldn’t be glad that it’s monday, but this monday is an exception. because this monday means it’s the start of the week and this week i get to head to minnesota (finally)🤗 •
this week is actually one of the first weeks where i don’t have a million things i need to accomplish. most of my classes had exams last week or have them next week, so this week is a nice little break. besides doing occasional homework and working out each day, i get to take it pretty easy until thursday! then once thursday hits i’ll be all ready to really embrace the time i get to spend with my sister👯♀️•
and although we might be going full force into fall right now, that doesn’t keep me from indulging in smoothie bowls! today’s lunch was one of my favorite smoothie bowl combos and just a classic! •
dEATS: 3/4 c. frozen strawberries, 1/3-1/2 c. frozen raspberries, half of a banana, 1/2 scoop plant based vanilla protein powder, and a combo of califia farms unsweetened almond milk and water! blend it all up and top with your favorite goodies! i used the other portion of the banana, roasted raw pumpkin seeds, and crazy richards peanut butter🤪
Hello Instagram! Have you checked out our Heritage Blend? It’s a nutrient packed blend with petite red and green varieties. It offers more flavor,crunch and uniformity than traditional spring mix blends. It also has a 14-shelf life and 34% more servings per case than spring mix. Ask your TF salesperson about it!
There are some mornings when I wake up and and the idea of a smoothie just turns my stomach🤢
I take that as a hint that my body really wants something more substantial!
I typically fast from about 7pm to 10:00am the following day, and having a protein rich breakfast like today’s will keep me going and feeling satiated for at least a few hours.
Organic eggs 🍳 are one of the richest whole food protein sources available, avocados supply us with healthy fats, helping to keep our blood sugar down, preventing energy crashes in the day and helping us to feel fuller longer. For a base I have @udisglutenfree
It’s a perfect breakfast for a busy day!
Please!! I’d love to hear what you love to have for breakfast! 📣💛
Monday night is RECIPE NIGHT! New video up on my IGTV for the Stuffed Butternut Squash recipe that YOU voted for on my Instastory 😊 as always, full written recipe on my blog, the link is in my bio! Who's going to try this one?
Sweet potato toasts are so versatile, you can make them savory or sweet depending on your mood. These were topped with homemade cinnamon almond butter and raisins. Paired with some greens either in your eggs or a smoothie. Make a big batch and store in the fridge. We love them topped with smashed avocado and cracked pepper. This is featured in my November meal plan. Get healthy for the holidays! #sweetpotato #sweetpotatotoast #healthybreakfast #preworkout #fuel #nutrientdense #strongbody #eatclean
HI INTERNET CAN WE PLEASE STOP GIVING FOOD ANNOYING LABELS TO MAKE PEOPLE FEEL SHITTY ABOUT THEMSELVES? THANK YOU SO MUCH.⠀
'Clean', 'dirty', 'real', 'fake'... food is food. Some foods are more nutritious, others - less so. Some you might want to prioritise more, others - less so. They're not good or bad, just different. And that's ok.⠀
'But people need to make better food choices !!!!'⠀
Sure. But people know a damn chicken salad is likely to be more nutrient-dense than a caramel mcfluffy. It's 2018. Fear-mongering is simply not okay. Shaming someone into making certain food choices is not the way to build better eating habits long-term. ⠀
Remove the weird labels, see each food for exactly what it is, enjoy everything in ModEraTioN, make your own damn choices + ignore the bs.⠀
Oh, and avoid plastic foods. That food actually isn't real.⠀
Whatever time of day you break-that-fast, make sure it’s the right fuel for your day.
I had a fairly easy day today, so a late breakfast allowed me to extend my overnight fast and reap the restorative benefits.
I definitely feel good afterwards, with fewer aches and pains, a happy tummy and enhanced focus.
This morning, I got up, walked the dog, taught a cracking Bootcamp class and came home for some coffee and this nutrient dense breakfast. I went for full fat Greek yogurt, organic English blueberries (good source of Vit-C and B6 and antioxidants inc. Omega-9) and, in the absence of my LCHF Granola I went mad for @paleofoodsco
chia & hemp granola.
In the absence of any high intensity training or weight lifting, this was an ideal breakfast and totally delicious.

With micros in the upper range, I must give credit to local farmers like Chuck and Amy of Mill Gap Farm who grow clean, nutrient-dense foods like these delicious rutabaga greens. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals including magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin K, and other important nutrients that keep our body functioning properly. I’m braising these with caramelized Vidalia onion, organic carrot, and homegrown garlic so we will have a nice big pot of greens to eat throughout the week 💪🏼 #nutrientdense #wholefood #cleaneating #supportlocalfarmers

The earliest stages of a plant's life are no less important than human infancy! Often overlooked, the development that occurs in this short period of time can have an enormous impact on the plant's future health. The correct temperature, adequate moisture levels, a welcoming soil texture, and essential nutrients are non-negotiable for these babies - but there are also other bits for you to be mindful of that can set them up for success: 🌱
1)Inoculate ALL seeds before planting! Just like a mother's colostrum, inoculants introduce beneficial microbial partners that can bolster an infant plant's immunity and overall health. 🚀
2) Give seedlings space! Imagine how big and strong your plants would grow if they never heard or felt the word 'no' - which is pretty much what happens when they reach out and hit the edges of their container. Soil blocks, up-potting, and planting seeds directly in the ground when conditions allow can prevent the immediate environment from taking on a negative 'No means no!' line of communication. 🔮
3)Be a positive force! Give them your time and attention, say nice things filled with love and encouragement, visualize a beautiful harvest. Create a kind & loving environment, using whatever techniques feel right to you. 🌟🌈🦄

On the menu this week (starting from the bottom): 💚❤️ For dinner I prepped Zoodles with a homemade vegan bolognese sauce! For the Zoodles - I picked up 4 organic zucchini’s at Trader Joe’s & then used my manual zoodler to make them into spaghetti. I then put them in a bowl with towels on the bottom while I made the sauce for them to dry out all of the excess water. For the sauce I mixed 2 cups of cauliflower rice + 1/3 cup walnuts (chopped) + 1 cup of mushrooms diced + 1 tablespoon of soy sauce + 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning + 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika - then I put it on the oven for 30 mins at 350. After you put that in the oven sauté 1 onion + 2 ribs celery + 1 carrot (shredded) + 4 minced garlics. Then add 1 cup of white wine + tomato paste + San Marzano tomatoes + 1 cup of almond milk. Then add in basil, oregano, turmeric, thyme, and a dash of Italian seasoning. Stir for 20 mins then add in the roasted cauliflower rice & mushrooms with walnuts. Stir for 10 mins then serve! 💚💛🧡❤️💜 For lunch I prepped a bento box with celery, yellow bell peppers, carrots, red bell peppers, & grapes! 💚 Lettuce with cucumbers (topped with apple cider vinegar) for a appetizer before my dinners! 🧡 Melon balls because they’re delicious. 💚💙💛 Smoothie packs with spinach, wild blueberries, and bananas! When I go to blend them I will add a little almond milk, spirulina, turmeric, & flax seeds! 🥦🥒💃🏼 hope everyone has a great week!!
Nothing beats homemade bone broth: supports the immune system, heals leaky gut, and makes a tasty soup. It’s simple to make and infinitely more nutritious than store bought varieties. Once you taste the real thing, you’ll never settle for the bland, lifeless stuff that comes in a box or a can.
PS—always start with high quality bones/meat from a pastured source. Grocery store meat just isn’t the same. .
Have you tasted homemade bone broth? Have you tried making it yourself?

HARISSA SPICED PUMPKIN SOUP 🙌🏻 🎃
Ok folks, if you watched my instastories last night you’ll know I made a little soup experiment. It was definitely a success. Here is the recipe
2 cups diced yellow onion
1 cup diced celery
1 cup diced carrot 🥕
1/2 stick grassfed butter
3 large cloves minced garlic
1.5 tbsp harissa seasoning
1 tsp cumin
.5 tsp garlic powder
.5 tsp chili powder
1 tsp herbes de Provence
4 cups chicken bone broth
1 can full fat coconut milk
2 cans organic pumpkin purée
2 tbsp honey
1 head cauliflower
4 skinless boneless chicken thighs
Feta, mint and pumpkin seeds for garnish
Roast cauliflower with avocado oil, salt and pepper at 400 for 45 minutes
Simmer chicken thighs for about 45 minutes until tender enough to shred easily
Sauté onion, celery, carrot and spices in butter
Add garlic and sauté until soft
Add chicken broth, pumpkin and coconut milk and simmer
Use an immersion blender to purée .
Add roasted cauliflower and shredded chicken
Adjust seasoning to taste. I added a little honey but you could also sweeten with more carrot, or maybe apple or parsnips. Play around with the spices to make it spicier if you like. Top with mint, feta and toasted pumpkin seeds. Yogurt or sour cream would work well here too. Enjoy! .

farmers markets are my favorite part about Sundays 🌟✨☀️ it feels good to be able to trust where my food is coming from. our food typically travels more than 1,500+ miles before reaching our plates and is sometimes stored for weeks in between. eating local, seasonal foods that are grown without pesticides, herbicides and GMOs really is so important. most produce at farmers markets is coming from within only 100 miles of the market and is more nutrient dense due to fewer (if any) pesticides. shopping farmers markets is generally cheaper, more reliable, supports local economies, and is better for the environment
I know organic sometimes seems phony or elitist, but start by googling “clean fifteen, dirty dozen”. I’ll write a post soon about why it is so important to do your best to avoid chemical herbicides and #glyphosate
