Happy #mealprepsunday everyone!⠀
Hope you had a chance to prep some food for the week 😁 (check out what I made in my stories) #sb21dayreset starts tomorrow!⠀
Feeling lazy? Check out Tip #5 from my #MealPrepHacks Guide: Freezing/Frozen Foods:⠀
Don’t overlook the power of making double and freezing to save time and effort when you’re meal prepping.⠀
You can also stock up on frozen veggies, fish, lean burger patties or brown rice (Trader Joe’s organic frozen brown rice is great!). All of which can come through in a pinch and save serious time!⠀
Cooking a bunch of protein (chicken, turkey, beef, etc.) or breakfast cookies (one of our most popular 21-Day Reset recipes) and freezing some for the weeks to come can be a huge step towards freedom from cooking and cleaning everyday.⠀
p.s. Margaritas are not actually considered a superfood, and will not count towards meal prep. 😉

It's apple season! Here's a recipe for dried apples....and you don't need a food dehydrator!
DRIED APPLES ****************************
4 cups water
½ cup lemon juice
2 large apples, unpeeled if preferred ****************************
1 - Position racks in the upper and lower third of the oven; preheat to 200°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine water and lemon juice in a medium bowl. (The lemon juice helps prevent browning.) 2 - Using a sharp knife or a mandoline (if you have one), slice 2 large apples as thin as possible, about ⅛ inch thick. (We skip peeling and coring because we like the look of the dried skins and the pretty pattern the core makes in the center.) Soak the slices in the lemon water for 30 minutes. Drain and pat the slices as dry as possible with paper towels (or clean kitchen towels). Place on the prepared baking sheets in a single layer.
3 - Bake the slices on the upper and lower racks for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and turn each slice over; return the pans to the oven. Bake 1 more hour for soft dried apples or about 2 more hours for crispy apple chips. (Timing depends on your oven, the type of apple and thickness of the slices; check periodically and reduce or increase the total time as needed.) Turn off the oven, crack the door and leave the apples in the oven until the oven cools completely, 1 to 2 hours.
Make Ahead Tip: Store airtight for up to 1 week or refrigerate for up to 1 month. ****************************
SIDE NOTE: This recipe is not intended to be used while doing the weight loss system. However, this is a healthy recipe for after you've achieved your weight loss goal.
I wanted to share something that I normally don't talk about when it comes to my wellness business..... MONEY.
I'm always saying that I get paid to get fit, but in all honesty I get paid to get fit AND to give my family a better mother AND to help women find their worth, become confident AND to help other women GET PAID TO GET FIT.
Is what I do simple?! YES!!!!! Is it easy?? NOT ALWAYS.
Do I feel like getting up and working out each day? Sometimes. Do I like to resist processed foods & unhealthy treats? NO. But it's my job.
My job, my family, my tribe, my lifestyle keeps me accountable.
I know there are a lot of people out there that think I'm silly for sharing my health journey....I know they think that this job doesn't really PAY actual money.
Well I'm here to tell you that my life, my families lives, my team's lives, my client's lives have transformed.
I have made $117,867.46 in CASH as a coach.
I had never looked at my complete earnings until TODAY. I'm floored. I'm incredibly PROUD.
The coolest part is anyone can do this!!! I'm proof that showing up each day and being consistent WORKS.
I just want to let y'all know that every coaches income depends on her own efforts, diligence, and skill. && being part of this company is you committing to yourself to work hard, accomplish big dreams and never give up!!! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• The figures stated above are not a guarantee and are not a projection of a typical Coach’s earnings through participation in the compensation plan. As in any independent business, the level of success or achievement of each Coach is dependent upon the commitment, skill level, drive, and desire to succeed of the individual Coach.
Chocolate peanut butter chia pudding recipe 👇🏼 Have you tried chia pudding before? Save to try 😋
You probably know by now that I don’t munch on 🦄 “superfoods” 🦄 all day long and that they’re definitely not a one-way ticket to wellbeing 🎟, as much as some people might make them out to be! Rather than seeing them as “superfoods”, I see them as just another nutrient-dense food that I can include as part of varied diet packed with plant-based goodies... so long as they’re not a complete rip-off! 💵 After all, it’s the overall dietary pattern that appears to count, not the intricate details 🔬 You most certainly don’t need to eat “superfoods” to have a healthy diet! 🙅🏼♀️
Nevertheless, a couple of foods commonly marketed as superfoods that I enjoy using are chia seeds and cacao powder. Chia seeds are pretty super – they’re packed with fibre and are a good source of protein, calcium and plant-based omega 3 fatty acids. Cacao powder, raw ground cacao beans minus the cacao butter (fat), is a rich source of flavonoids, a diverse group of plant chemicals that have antioxidant properties 💥
🍫Chocolate peanut butter chia pudding 🍫
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 heaped tbsp cacao powder (❗️plain cocoa powder is also completely fine, and far cheaper. Please don’t feel like you have to use cacao! I enjoy the richness of cacao in unheated/uncooked recipes)
1 heaped tbsp whey protein (optional, mine was vanilla flavour, sweetened w stevia)
A dash of vanilla essence
1/2 cup milk of choice
1/2 tsp honey
1 tbsp peanut butter (natural, my tbsp is always heaped 😉)
1/4 cup oats
Tiny sprinkle of salt (optional, omit if peanut butter is salted)
Strawberries to top -
Recipe (serves 1):
1. Add chia, cacao, milk, protein powder, honey and vanilla essence to your bowl, stirring until well combined. Sit for 10 min until the chia has soaked up the liquid, creating a pudding-like consistency. Taste and adjust as necessary – all my recipes are rough measures!
2. Stir in the peanut butter and salt
3. Top with strawbs and oats

With time flying so fast and so much being outside of our control, the one thing we can learn to master is our diet and therefore, our health.
By “master”, I don’t mean applying a rigid regimen of choices but a healthy, conscious wide ranging selection of foods that support the overall health of your body and mind.
Also, leaving space for eating things that may not necessarily be healthy but give you pleasure is also important. Part of us is complex, part of us is frivolous. Part of us is disciplined, part of us is hedonistic. All these parts make the harmonious whole.
Consciously honour and acknowledge each part. The more we do this, the easier it becomes to effortlessly make right choices.
The more we suppress and deny aspects of ourselves, the harder it is to master our choices.
So in the essence of self love and all that good stuff, I treated myself to some special goodies. I’ve never tried the @gotoskincare products but was DESPERATE for a new moisturiser that was bomb and also #crueltyfree (stay tuned for a review). I stuck to my fav @nyxcosmetics_australia eyebrow and crayon cause it’s amazing and never fails me. I’ve tried the @meccamaxima plumping cream before and loved it and have heard great things about their highlighter so that was a no brainer 🤷🏻♀️ and last but not least, I had to try the new lipgloss range from @australiscosmetics. I originally bought one from @pricelineau but the applicator was missing, so after a very annoying afternoon driving around JUST to replace the broken product (@pricelineau, do better!) I finally got to try all these beauties on my face. SWIPE ➡️ to see my made up face still with bed hair and in pj’s 😇
Recently I have been testing out some anti-inflammatory foods and have been absolutely loving my homemade tumeric lattes 😍 oh boy does it taste good. Including anti-inflammatory foods in your diet has proven to have many benefits. Not only does it help with my endometriosis, but many other diseases! I’ll definitely be keeping you updated on more ingredients that have been helping me 🤗 Id love to hear what diet works for you. Stay tuned for my homemade tumeric latte recipe ☕️ #endometriosis#endometriosisawareness#recipes#tumericlatte#tumeric#health#fitness#healthy#healthyrecipe
Gearing up for chilly weather and I’m super excited about all the comforting foods I’ll be making! 🤗 One of my favorites is this Spicy Lentil Soup with ham. It’s so hearty and full of good-for-you ingredients that will keep you full until your next meal. Bonus points: it’s gluten free and freezer friendly!

Do I take cheat meals?! 🤨🍔🍪🍟
& what are YOUR thoughts on cheat/treat/free/untracked meals?! 🍕🍿🍫
*disclaimer: I’m not saying the below is what you should do, but rather what currently works for me.*
🤔 First, what do I consider a “cheat” meal? Well, I personally do not like the idea of calling any meal a “cheat” meal - it associates a negative or guilty connotation with food. Since I track macros - I would consider what you typically think of as a “cheat” meal to be an untracked meal. This is a meal where I get whatever I want and don’t track the macros!
🍦 So...do I eat untracked meals? YES! I tend to only take these 100% untracked meals on vacations, holidays, and special occasions (i.e. birthdays, anniversaries, etc). I say TEND up there because if I really want an untracked meal outside of a special occasion, I DO IT!
🍔 What about other meals that I eat out? If it’s outside of a special occasion, I usually estimate the macros and track the meal! Since I eat out sooo much on weekends, I do like to estimate those macros because generally, those meals aren’t worth going untracked in my eyes. 🤷🏼♀️ I’d rather get close to my macros those days (more consistency) so that I can mentally fully enjoy those special occasion untracked meals! Since I know those untracked meals aren’t super common, they feel extra special 🤩
🍪 Why don’t I take more untracked meals? 1. I really don’t feel the need to at this time. I purposefully work “treat” foods into my every day, which actually keeps my cravings at bay! So I don’t feel the need for more untracked meals. 2. Tracking macros honestly doesn’t take a mental toll on me (usually - if it does, I make a change).
P.S. this nova lox bagel was from my trip to NYC last weekend and was AMAZING 😭 NY bagels >>> all other bagels. Along with this, I had a second bagel after + the night before I had as much Mediterranean food and cupcakes as I wanted. This weekend was an example of an untracked weekend due to vacation 🙌🏻

Made butternut squash tots according to @everylastbite_’s recipe! Added a few personal touches to the tots: garlic, cilantro, and oregano.🥄 And made date chutney and garlic chutney for sweet and spicy dip options!
I’ve wanted to make this for a while but was always missing an ingredient or dreaded cutting the butternut squash myself. At @costco I found cubed butternut squash which made it so much easier.
ALSO: when you make this (step by step in story!!!), you’re gonna think “omg this smells familiar” you’re right. It took me a while but eventually I realized it smells like cool ranch @doritos 😂

Just whipped up a batch of my Chocolate Black Bean Brownies for snacks for the week ✅ I love this recipe - I'm a realist and know that I will get sweet cravings during busy days so having these on hand is a great way to avoid grabbing something processed instead. Have you tried this 7-ingredient recipe? Mine was 9 ingredients today because I added some walnuts and dark chocolate but you can keep it as simple or complex as you like 🙊 Recipe is on the blog - linked in bio ✨
With just more than three months left until I go back to college - which is the last thing i want to do at the moment - I was feeling really lost and sad because i felt like i couldn’t find things to do because i don't want to do anything. I don’t feel completely ready yet, and that scares me.
This week i want to really focus on the small but most important things. Finishing reading the Bible on schedule, nourishing well and being good to my body, and doing small things that make me feel happy - going on a walk, cooking with my dad, drinking tea while reading or writing poetry... it will get better. You’ll get better, you already are just don’t doubt it
Vegan and gf sweet potato and full red bean bread my absolute favorite! 🌼🍠 dairy and refined sugar free too. happy sunday!
The lunch for today is a plate full of goodness! 😇
