Hurricane grocery store run!
This week's trip to the store looked a little different - in anticipation of possible Hurricane Florence here in Virginia we focused on getting shelf stable non-perishable items. Some good items we found included:
- Canned and dried fruit, a few fresh pieces, applesauce pouches - Canned beans and tuna - Nut butters and bread, trail mix - Canned vegetables - Protein bars - Instant coffee and dried milk - Plenty of water
- Beer, wine, and chocolate, of course!
Stay safe out there my friends!

Ya’ll, this cracks me up. 😜 With all the Keto, Paleo, Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy Free. Juicing, Fasting, Cracker Barrel Organic, Plant based, Raw... I really don’t know. Ha!!! All I know is I dislike diets and love feeling amazing. We all know what we need to do and not do. We all know our sweet spot and when we aren’t in it. The one thing I do know!? I’m LOVING that so many people are talking about health and we are getting closer to the wellness part of the discussion too. I love that!!! No matter what you love, believe in, go for or shy away from... Become the best you whatever that means to you. I am on a mission to feel my best. Happy to share what I’m doing. I’m almost four years in on feeling better than ever and 22 days in on my new healthy food focus. I’m an open book about both. Fill me in on you too. Let’s compare notes and why you feel the way you feel. I love learning from each other. Here’s to the best us. ALL of us. BAM! #keto #paleo #vegan #vegetarian #raw #juicing #organic #plantbased #health #happiness #foodie #water #foodprep #foodporn #healthcoach #nutritionist #registereddietian #chef #healthychef #culinary

Weight loss management is a struggle, ya'll! A real effing struggle!! Yeah, working out is great. However, if you're not eating properly, the workouts are not as effective or leading to the desired result. I'm thankful to my nutritionist @manuel.villacorta
to help me get back on track and provide me with meal options. More importantly, hold me accountable. Day 1 was a relief to get through. Right after finally making the call to him. It felt like confession🙄

my very typical, favorite meal... cottage cheese, toast, and cinnamon. I topped with raspberries this time 😋
Coconut Chicken & Veggies 🌴 🥥
New week night fav and a great alternative for chicken strips. The golden crispy coating adds a new flavor and texture!
I hear clients all the time say they are tired of grilled chicken breasts and salad. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! A light coating of simple ingredients can go a long way.
This meal was great as leftovers and is kid friendly!
Nutrition Info 🍗 Chicken: provides a good source of protein, essential vitamins, and minerals. Protein plays an important role in our diet. It is made of amino acids, which are the building blocks of our muscles. 🥦 Broccoli: is a great source of vitamins K and C, a good source of folate and also provides potassium, fiber. 🥦Brussel Sprouts: are rich in many valuable nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. 🍉 Watermelon: has high water content, keeping you hydrated! It is also a low-calorie fruit high in some nutrients, especially carotenoids, and vitamin C. #coconutchicken #proteinandveggies #healthyeasymeal #sheetpansuppers
Salad on repeat...and the combinations and possibilities are limitless.!🥗 it’s such a good habit to eat salad everyday either at lunch or before your dinner. All the fresh greens and veggies provide so many enzymes, and real nutrition! Over the years my love for salad has grown...especially when I started to seek out different ways to toss together nourishing veggies, fruit, nuts, seeds, olives, radishes etc etc and make killer dressing! A delicious drizzle of healthy oil, vinegars, and salts can completely transform your salad.! Here’s one of my favorite versions of a healthy vinaigrette! (P.S. this recipe will be used for a very special project coming in 2019 so stay tuned.)!🙌🍋 Lemon Italian Vinaegrette
1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp White wine vinegar
1 tsp dried oregano
Juice of 2 lemons
Sea salt (or pink Himalayan salt is really nice) + Cracked pepper to taste
Last nights dinner.
·Garlic & wine steamed muscles
·Wild salmon in a picatta sauce
·Fennel, cabbage, & butter lettuce salad with pumpkin seeds, sliced apple and a mandarin Orange vinaigrette.
Our take on a ‘salad bar.’ I’ve learned a trick to get my kids to love having a salad with dinner. Make a big platter of salad ingredients and let them choose their own components.
This one had: fennel, spiralized rainbow radish, sunflower sprouts, mache rosettes, grape tomatoes, spinach, arugula, torched avocado, and Parmesan crisps.
lifted with the green giant himself, @lift_like_lesik
and played around with the monolift. definitely a game changer from my usual squat/sessions. clearly we powered through our workout with the help of @beyondrawlabs
Do you pack yourself a lunch or do you eat out or grab something to go?
I normally eat lunch at home, and maybe once a week I have a lunch meeting out- and 99% of the times i order a salad. (And once in awhile yam fries if they are on the menu🙊)
But today I’m supervising for Luca’s grade 4 trip to the aquarium, so a packed lunch it is! 🙋🏼♀️
Packing lunch doesn’t have to be boring and full of convenience food. Remember to include the following
•protein (eggs, ancient grains, legumes, Greek yogurt)
•fiber (fruit, veggies, grains, seeds)
•healthy fats (avocado, seeds)
And finding a great reusable container will make lunch packing a breeze!
The last principle of Intuitive Eating is to honor your health. It’s so important to remember that progress, not perfection, is what IE is about. Gentle nutrition that honors your health & your cravings is the goal. You won’t suddenly become “unhealthy” from one meal, so don’t panic if you have something that society deems unhealthy (especially during the holidays)! As you trust your body, it’ll get easier to fill your meals & snacks with foods that are both nutritious and indulgent. Hopefully these 10 principles have been helpful in bettering your understanding of the nondiet approach to eating 🥑🍓🍕🍗🍦#gratefullynourished
Monday morning for the win!⭐️🙋🏼♀️...a quieter weekend with more rest made all the difference, so this morning I got back on track with my workout with @ingridvadinafitness
, smoothie (added @mymatchalife
for focused energy), and a more organized start to the week.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy start to your week! 🍎
October may be over, but that doesn't mean pumpkin spice has to be 😋 Check out link in my bio for all the deets on this decadent protein fudge recipe featuring @vitalproteins

Have a hard time resisting a juicy red meat burger? Have no fear- a portobello mushroom burger can be the perfect vegan and health-friendly substitute when you're craving that meaty texture and intense flavor of a burger! Try adding avocado and other burger assets to make it even tastier!! 🍔
snack: 1 slice of Ezekiel sprouted 100% whole grain bread, 1 tbsp of organic almond butter and fresh strawberries. Skip the added sugar from jelly and enjoy this healthy take on PB&J!
Celery- not so boring afterall.! Usually a veggie left stranded at the bottom of our crisper, it's due time celery take centre-stage in your kitchen. And for good reason- anti-cancer nutrients such as coumarins, nutrient known as 3-n-butylphtaline which in animal studies reduces blood pressure by 14% and cholesterol by 7% with just 4-6 celery ribs per day.
Fibre, vitamin C, B vitamins, help to round out the reasons why we want to start consuming more of this veggie.
Juice is for a great, hydrating electrolyte replenisher, perfect as we approach the summer months.
How do you like to eat your celery?
One of my clients saw her weight (not from here, we keep that on lockdown) I had her write the number and what she associates with it on a rock and chuck it in the river. How many times have y'all stepped on the scale and felt similar things? Crazy what a number can do. You don't need to weigh yourself. For real. Your zip code tells me more about your health than your weight. And guess what, losing weight doesn't make you healthier. I'll argue that with science to my grave. #bopo #scalesareforfish #dietitian #eddietitian #registereddietian #pdx #portlandoregon
