Wishing this was my breakfast today but sadly it’s not 😩 Have a bunch of errands to run so I’ve just had something quick to eat instead. The breakfast I wish I was eating right now was scrambled eggs with sautéed spinach, sundried tomatoes & onions on a bed of more spinach with already prepped sweet potato slices and a side of avocado 🥑 _______ #rd2be #nutrition #breakfast #eggs #veggies #avocado #sweetpotatoes #intuitiveeating #postworkout #protein #foodie #foodstagram #nutritionhappens #allfoodsfit #mindfulness #mindfuleating #positivenutrition #foodpositive
[ad] Rosemary and sundried tomato savory granola: FOR SURE one of the best snacks I’ve made so far this year. Made with @Quaker Old-Fashioned oats! Oats are one of the most convenient sources of fiber and this granola recipe is the perfect portable snack to toss in a sealable bag to-go. Each ½ cup serving of raw oats contain roughly 2g of soluble fiber, and research has shown that 3 grams of soluble fiber from oats daily, when part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk for heart disease. Crumble the clusters over a salad or soup for crunch or over plain yogurt of choice as a way to satisfy a savory craving. Plus, making homemade granola is a guaranteed way to make your house smell good for days! Link is directly in bio 🤓 #Quaker #NutritionHappens #QuakerOats
Lately I've been shifting my approach to wellness and general self improvement to what it's all really about: love and nourishment of the whole self - body, mind, and soul. May, of @nutritionhappens , embodies this holistic approach to nutrition and believes in respecting ourselves enough to care for our bodies while also being able to love and enjoy food. She believes we should each define our own version of health - one that includes dark chocolate and bread bowls! When I worked with her and @skirtpr on this shoot, she whipped up this amazing sourdough snack with greek yogurt, berries, and mint. She explained that sourdough is usually naturally gluten free because it's made with an fermented unrefined flour dough. They were every bit as good as they looked!! . May Zhu is a registered dietitian nutritionist who offers individual nutrition counseling as well as a variety of other wellness services. She is also as sweet as can be and so easy to talk to! Go check out her killer recipes and weekly tips (including behind the scenes on popular health brands) over at @nutritionhappens. . (This is not a sponsored post. I just adore sharing about women who are doing meaningful things and who have helped me on my journey!)💕
What’s for lunch today? 🤓 For me, most days are pretty simple (re: leftovers or an end of the week, everything in the fridge salad 🤷🏻‍♀️) but lately when I’m walking past @brownbagseafood , I’d pop in for something “quick” but still pretty healthy. I love that you can customize everything and it’s pretty balanced in terms of nutrition - perfect blend of protein / healthy fats / greens 🌱Though I’d definitely still rec the truffle Parmesan tots if you’re in the mood for a fun side 🤞🏼 #nutritionhappens

#ad Out here in West Town for a preview of @refinery29 @29Rooms that’s finally in CHICAGO this weekend! (July 26 - 29!) Stopped by @Larabar room to scope out some snacks (always, duh). The Cashew Cookie bar has been my go-to flavor for YEARS: made with only TWO simple ingredients: cashew and dates. Real food that’s convienent 👏🏼 If you’re in Chicago and you haven’t snagged a ticket here yet, better get on it! #LARABAR #29RoomsCHI #29Rooms #NutritionHappens
I have a super busy day ahead with getting some internship work done, but I was able to squeeze in a run at the metroparks this morning ☀️🏃🏼‍♀️Post workout breakfast was super filling and satisfying! Breakfast included scrambled eggs with garlic powder, black pepper, sautéed onions, and sundries tomatoes (I never had these in eggs before but they were so gooood plus I got them from a local grocery store), strawberries & blackberries, and a side of avocado • • • #rd2be #foodie #nutritionhappens #foodstagram #allfoodsfit #intuitiveeating #nutrition #breakfast #avocado #sundriedtomatoes #eggs #berries #supportlocalbusiness #postworkout #mindfulness
Nutritionists have long known that ‘you are what you eat’ is not just an expression. Recent studies suggest that what you eat affects you as well as your genes. The impact of nutrition on our genes is often called nutrigenomics. One of the best ways to achieve a healthier life is through good nutrition. #nutrition #obesityisadisease #weightzero #ketodiet #nutritionhappens #wellness #fit #fitness #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #fitdoctorsofinstagram #weightlossmotivation #overweightproblems #exercise #lowcarbdiet #lchf #countmacrosnotcalories #nosugar #ketogenicdiet #keto #mediterraneandiet #paleo #plantbased #plantbased #ketosis #noprocessedfood #dnagenetics #healthyfood #diet
Some people exude a special glow or aura that can light up a room or a soul simply by their presence and little interaction. Jason Loebig is one of those people. He was a regular customer that embodied what Hi-Vibe was all about; positive energy, meaningful connection, the strive for success, an appreciation for organic nutrient-dense sustenance, and inspiring others to simply get out and move. In short, our desire to get Jason involved with our brand was the birth of our ambassador program. • Besides lighting up souls and taking epic pictures, Jason is also the co-founder of Live Better, a company focused on celebrating any individual who strives to improve his or her life, and the lives of others. They host exotic wellness retreats as well as local events, including corporate initiatives. Jason is also a Nike trainer, Barry’s Bootcamp and yoga instructor. His positive energy, passion for wellness, and goal crushing mentality is undeniably infectious. Follow along with us today as Jason takes over our stories, giving a little glimpse of how he keeps his #VibesOnHi . Maybe you’ll even catch a little bit of his sparkle ✨😉 . . . . . . #eatplaycrush #newnew #livebetter #biohacker #biohacking #paleovegan #chicagojuice #chicagofoodauthority #livinglabratory #broccolisprouts #organic #chicagojuicebar #chicagosbest #notbasic #worldsgreatest #eattravelrock #vegan #paleo #nutritionhappens #veganeats #highvibefood #geniusfoods #bulletproofdiet #owntheday #eeeeeats #yelpchicago #312food #chicagovegan #superfoods

So I’m at that stage in my life where the shows of choice that I’m choosing to watch in my free time consist of House Hunters and Fixer Upper. House-fever is real and no joke my friends! If only we had a few hundred thousand dollars sitting in our bank account, but hey, a girl can dream! 🤷🏻‍♀️ A few of my must-haves: 1. White kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a farmhouse sink, double decker oven and a flat top grill! 2. Plenty of windows to let in tons of natural light 3. Mud room 🏡 What’s on your future home’s must-have list!?

Oats will always be one of my timeless pantry staples because they’re simple to make and convenient to keep around. [AD] Plus, oats are composed of complex carbohydrates with a balance of soluble and insoluble fiber and important vitamins like vitamin B1 and magnesium. I like oats for their versatility because you can eat them a million different ways! Each variety of @Quaker oatmeal (instant, quick, old-fashioned, and steel-cut!) are 100% whole grain and have the same nutritional profile. My favorite bowl is made with @Quaker Old-Fashioned rolled oats cooked on the stovetop and paired with whatever fruit is currently in season. And right now while we’re still in the middle of summer, it’s all about the berries! 🍓(plus fresh mint for good measure). Pairing a pantry staple like oats with seasonal fruit is a great way to cut down on food costs while still getting in a variety of nutrients AND flavors! How are you eating your oats this season? #Quaker #NutritionHappens
Answering some common questions about choosing high-quality vitamins and supplements with @newchapterinc 🤞🏼 The mass amount of marketing lingo + product labels can make this decision confusing but there’s always a few helpful guidelines to keep in mind. Hint: educate yourself on the ingredients (they matter!). Already on the blog if you missed it 🤓#AD #NewChapterVitamins #nutritionhappens
A big bowl of #nicecream is the perfect way to start the day! Especially in the hot days of summer ☀️☀️☀️ * Big thanks to @crueltyfreechlo for putting together this bowl of deliciousness! Don't forget to top it with @Natierrasuperfoods Cacao Nibs for that extra nutritious burst of flavor! * * * * #natierra #superfoods #superfoodswithsoul #breakfast #freezedried #strawberries #cacaonibs #wholefoods #cleaneating #acaibowl #eeeeeats #healthyeating #instafood #realfood #getinmybelly #f52grams #spoonfeed #healthyeats #thekitchn #healthyfoodshare #fitfood #healthylifestyle #mindbodygram #tastingtable #huffposttaste #wholesome #feedfeed #organicfood #nutritionhappens
Always on the lookout for spots to work remotely out of that fits this checklist of mine: bright natural light, outlets near every seat, strong Wi-Fi, and a food + drink menu full of good for you + delicious options (This is just an iced matcha - unsweetened). The gold paper straws and gram’ worthy (neutral) color palette is just a bonus 😎 Well done, @limitlesscoffee 👋🏼 #nutritionhappens
You know those days when your heart is so full of gratitude that you can’t stop smiling? This is it 🎈Grateful for the birthday love and for all the people who made it possible. 26 feels amazing so far 💫 #nutritionhappens
Teaming up with @Quaker again for the rest of 2018 to chat about all things oats with you guys! #AD On the blog today is a new favorite grab-and-go recipe: avocado mint overnight oats. Like, for when you want a smoothie flavor but also crave #oats . 🤓 Never decide between both again: made with @Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats! (rolled oats = best kind of oats for overnight oats and a good source of fiber to help start your day) #Quaker #nutritionhappens #quakeroatmeal
Probably eating something savory for breakfast 🤓 I love any combination of eggs + greens / vegetables + healthy fats like nuts and seeds: it’s delicious and you’re getting in a steady source of energy + covering a handful of vitamins for the day. Your turn: breakfast - sweet or savory? #nutritionhappens
Pick up our nut mylk with your lunch and make this delicious breakfast recipe from @colourmypalate at home! #foodbyfare ・・・ 🕗The case of the Mondays… Managing a corporate job, eating healthy, working out…Sometimes (often), it feels like it's impossible to balance it all. To this day, I am still learning and adapting - I've recently incorporated morning workouts by shifting my schedule to an earlier bedtime and wake up! After a couple runs of trial and error, this is what works best for me…right now. • I needed to find a breakfast option that would be on-the-go, hearty and healthy. That’s where overnight oats come in and check all of those boxes! • ☑What you’ll need: - 1/3 cup rolled oats - 1/2 cup milk of choice - Everything else is up to you! . Here are some optional add-ins: Cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, matcha, chia seeds, hemp hearts, flax seeds, coconut sugar, honey, nut butter, berries, bananas…feel free to be creative! 🎨 • HOW-TO 1- Mix oats with milk and toppings of choice. 2- Let sit overnight. #wsmchicago . . . . . . . #Chicago #lunch #chicagolunch #loop #60606 #catering #healthy #health #healthyfood #wellness #eatclean #chickpeainthecity #nutritionhappens #chicagofood #igerschicago #chigram #chicagofoodauthority #infatuationchi #eaterchicago #foodphotography #todayfood #alwayshungrychi #312food #mychicagopix #devourpower #sokophoto #chicagofooddude
Can’t do life w/o you, @sweetgreen 😍👯‍♀️ #nutritionhappens
Processing all the information I heard this weekend at #mbgrevitalize and rethinking about how we approach topics in health + wellness. I think it’s all too easy to put “wellness” into a box and argue between who is right or wrong, or what it should or shouldn’t look like. Ultimately I think it’s about being able to have an open mind about new ideas and approaching everything without judgement - choosing practices for you without comparison. It’s powerful to be in a community that supports showing up with no judgement for ourselves + each other. Leaving Arizona extremely inspired and bringing all that good energy back to Chicago 🌵Thanks @kevitadrinks for the endless kombucha on tap this weekend and @mindbodygreen for bringing this community together!

I love a good berries + mint combo 🤞🏼 Did you know that a high-quality sourdough is made with a base of only 3 ingredients? Usually, it’s a sourdough starter (fermented dough with probiotics) + an unrefined flour + salt. No sweeteners, no oils. I’d check your local bakery or farmer’s market for a good find, but one of my favorite in Chicago is probably the one from @publicanquality (it’s mix of rye + barley flour, the sourdough starter, salt. Consider this your carb appreciation post for the day 🤓 pc: @jenniferkathrynbrandphotos #nutritionhappens
