Cute Eats ♡ Whenever I enjoy a meal, I always make sure I have protein, fat and fibrous veggies and greens on my plate. ♡ I find this combination tends to keep me feeling full longer and my blood sugar nicely balanced. ♡ Blood sugar, or glucose, is our main source of energy. It dictates how hungry and energetic we feel. ♡ Eating the right amount of protein, fat and fiber at each meal can help you naturally stabilize blood sugar to burn fat and have consistent energy throughout the day. #eatcute
Cute Walks ♡ Going for daily walks has literally changed my life. ♡ A recent study found that walking improved convergent and divergent thinking, two types associated with enhanced creativity. ♡ It also helps me manage my stress. ♡ I highly recommend the book Secret Walks if you live in LA for beautiful and interesting hidden trails! ♡ Fun Fact: Beethoven wrote most of his music on walks that he scribbled in a notebook! ♡ What do you do to relieve stress?
So excited to share my homemade low- sugar Apple Cider recipe I made for my friends over at @qalo ! Their products are definitely on my holiday shopping list! I highly recommend checking them out! What You'll Need: 5 Large Apples 3 Cinnamon Sticks 1 Teaspoon Cloves OR Clove Powder 1 Teaspoon of Nutmeg Step 1: Quarter the apples and remove the cores. Place the quarter apples in a pot with 3 cups water. Add cinnamon sticks, cloves, and nutmeg in the pot and fill with water. Step 2: Bring to a boil like you would with potatoes and then turn it down to a simmer. Let simmer for at least 1 hour. It'll make your home smell incredible! Step 3: Allow cooling. Strain cooled fluid removing all solids into an airtight sterile container. For extra sweetness, you can add a tablespoon of raw honey. Serve warm with a cinnamon stick.
Want to create a greener world? One of the most important things you can do is vote with your dollar. ♡ Where you spend your money is a powerful way of voting each day to support local communities, fair wages, and a healthy planet. ♡ As you begin your holiday shopping, I highly recommend taking time to learn the brands/ companies you buy from to see if their ethos is online with your beliefs. ♡ @pulppantry is a brand I love supporting because their products are made from recycled fruit and veggie pulp to make granola! ♡ What are brand you love?

Shilajit ♡ I am always trying new herbs and supplements in order to look and feel my best. This past month I started taking Shilajit. ♡ Shilajit is a tar -like substance that comes from the mountain crevices of the Himalayan and Tibet Mountains. ♡ It is said to help relieve fatigue, promote brain health, relieve pain, support the immune system, manage diabetes and prevent inflammation. ♡ I take it by spooning out a pea sized portion and mixing it with a glass of water with some orange/lemon juice. The taste is quit pungent so I drink it quickly. ♡ The brand I’ve been using is from @purehimalayanshilajit ♡ What are new health experiments are you trying out?
Live Cute ♡ After much thought, I realized most of my stress comes from trying to do too many things before leaving the house.

Cute Homemade Dog Biscuits As an animal lover, I was so excited when my friends at @qalo launched their dog collection! To celebrate, I created these simple homemade dog biscuits. Most dogs are happy with any treat, so I decided to create a healthier option! ♡ Ingredients 1 cup of organic pumpkin 1/2 cup of peanut butter 2 eggs 1/4 cup coconut oil 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon turmeric ♡ * Make sure all these ingredients are organic, unsalted, made without sugar or hydrogenated oils. ♡ Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Step 2: Combine pumpkin, peanut butter, eggs, and oil in a bowl. Add in baking soda, cinnamon, turmeric, and whole wheat flour. Stir until a stiff dough forms. Knead dough or mix just until flour is incorporated. Step 3: Roll out dough with a rolling pin and use a cookie cutter to cut out dog bone shapes, or just bake into little circles like cookies. Step 4: Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool before serving to your pup! ♡ Comment bellow with your dogs favorite food!
Cute Skincare ♡ For years I have been on a quest to have clear and soft skin. Finally, I found @freskincare and am in love! Not only is it a high performance brand that was designed for active women to wear during workouts, but it is also vegan and cruelty-free! ♡ For every set sold, an Argan tree is planted. I love the ethos behind the brand and am excited to watch them grow... literally 🌳 ♡ Shout out to @thefunkyloft for having the best wallpaper ever! If you go to NYC you gotta stay at this @airbnb ! #cutebeauty
