Thinking about how we got here because we didn’t even know how to row a row boat 🤷🏻♀️
On another note, it’s already mid August?! It’s the last month off summer vacay before internship and I’m excited to do a little traveling before my cortisol levels go back up again 🙈. It will be my first time in Japan 💕 please HMU with your recommendations😍. What are your plans before summer ends?
Okay, so breakfast doesn't always look like this...⠀⠀
A breakfast of healthy fats, proteins and some vegetables is a great way to set you up for your day. ⠀⠀
💛 It's got a low Glycemic Load so your insulin levels aren't swinging all over the show (less mood swings, cravings and brain fog).⠀⠀
💛 It's high in good fats and proteins so its going to keep you fuller for longer than your average cereal based breakfast.⠀⠀
💛 Its jam packed full of good vitamins and nutrients which your body will seriously thank you for!⠀⠀
💛 No gluten or dairy = happy PCOS hormones ☺⠀⠀
I don't always have the time to cook in the mornings in which case I have a well-balanced, low GL smoothie or some left over frittata which I tend to make in bulk on the weekend so save me time during the week.⠀⠀
What's your go- PCOS breakfast?⠀⠀
Meal frequency when looked at in black & white makes no difference to “weight/fat loss”!! That’s the short answer..... the long answer is meal frequency plays a huge role in “muscle protein synthesis” this is key when it comes to getting the best results in terms of body composition (muscle retention or even lean muscle tissue gains) the more lean muscle tissue the higher the metabolic rate of an individual.....but irrespective of that isn’t that what everyone wants?......not just weight loss on the scales but to also improve their body composition & shape by gaining lean muscle tissue so they can achieve that “toned” look!! Get used to small frequent high protein meals if you want the best results......you can’t just front load or back load protein & expect to gain the same results!! #nutrienttiming#mealfrequency#nutrition#lawsofnutrition#facts

So as Brittany and I were talking about the $ we just got for selling our Minivan. We ran through a quick list of everything we need to do. And I said "we can't ever seem to get ahead." Well just now I thought back to Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad Poor Dad" comment on that. And tried it. It really does make you feel better to turn that comment into a question. So instead of saying "We can't seem to ever get ahead." Changed to "how can we get ahead?" Turning it into a question promotes thought, and promotes action. Rather then closing the door with just a negative statement. Turn it into a question that has a potential positive outcome.
Thought I would share that valuable lesson I just thought of and had.

Come put in some HARD WORK with District Head Coach @bigmike_sr tomorrow at 6am at his FREE Boxing Bootcamp!!
For this year, my 30th year, I've made self-care as a top priority. I've admittedly been quite lax about my health but now I've learned that it doesn't hurt to be proactive in taking care of yourself.
As a #swansonpartner, I am so excited to share with you the newest addition to my daily self-care routine: Swanson Health's Mellow Mag. Magnesium has so many great benefits! It helps reduce stress, supports heart and bone health, and helps me rest easier. Plus, it comes in a yummy Raspberry Lemonade flavor, making my mornings a lot better.
Check out the link on my bio for more info. #ad#myswanson@swansonhealth

There is only one Japanese one-hit-wonder study from 2009 that suggests ACV causes weight loss.
The problem? There’s literally no other study on the topic, and it was sponsored directly by the company who makes the vinegar in the trial.
Heightened skepticism is warranted in these circumstances until independent study replication happens.
One study has show that it helps rats reduce their appetite. That’s because it made them nauseous.
More studies have shown pretty predictably that it will knock the enamel off your teeth, hurts your throat, causes digestive issues, and can lower potassium levels.
Plus you’re drinking vinegar. .
So can we please, as an informed and critical-thinking society living in the age of information put this nonsense to bed?

Everybody is off to school now, and I got a quiet moment alone with my breakfast oats this morning. So dreamy...both the oats and the quiet time alone 😉⠀
Simple, fresh ingredients make oat jars a favorite breakfast of mine. This one is:⠀
: Rolled oats (cook to package directions)⠀
: @philosophielove Green Dream mixed in⠀
: Ground flaxseed ⠀
: Fresh blueberries and blackberries⠀
: Chopped pistachios⠀
: Cinnamon (always and always)⠀
You could make this mix into overnight oats if you wanted. Just add your favorite nut milk to the oats the night before and let ‘em soak overnight.⠀
I stayed full on this morning bowl until lunchtime, and I consider that a win 🤩

(Bookmark/save post for your records) AMINO ACIDS, PART II:
HOW TO USE IT:
Nutrition experts recommend that protein, as a source of amino acids, account for 10-12% of the calories in a balanced diet. However, requirements for protein are affected by age, weight, state of health and other factors. On average, a normal adult requires approximately 0.36 GRAMS of protein per pound of body weight. Using this formula, a 140 lb. person would need 50 grams of protein per day. Though some athletes have higher requirements, an appropriate range of protein intake for healthy adults may be as low as 45-65 grams daily.
WHERE TO FIND IT:
Foods of animal origin, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products are the richest dietary sources of the essential amino acids. Plant sources of protein are often deficient in one or more essential amino acids. However, these deficiencies can be overcome by consuming a wide variety of plant foods.
The vast majority of Americans eat more than enough protein and also more than enough of each essential amino acid for normal purposes. However, many dieters, strict vegetarian bodybuilders and anyone else consuming an inadequate number of calories may not be consuming adequate amounts of amino acids. In these cases, the body will break down the protein in muscle tissue and use those amino acids to meet the needs of more important organs, thereby causing a decrease in muscle mass despite INCREASED exercise.

(Bookmark/save post for your records) AMINO ACIDS, PART I:
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty amino acids are needed to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair and maintenance of body tissues. Eleven of these amino acids can be made by the body itself, while the other nine (called ESSENTIAL amino acids) must come from the diet. The essential amino acids are ISOLEUCINE, LEUCINE, LYSINE, METHIONINE, PHENYLALANINE, THREONINE, TRYPTOPHAN and VALINE. Another amino acid, HISTIDINE, is considered semi-essential because the body does not always require dietary sources of it. The NONESSENTIAL amino acids are ARGININE, ALANINE, ASPARAGINE, ASPARTIC ACID, CYSTEINE, GLUTAMINE, GLUTAMIC ACID, GLYCINE, PROLINE, SERINE and TYROSINE. Other amino acids, such as CARNITINE and TAURINE, are used by the body in ways other than protein-building and are often used therapeutically. L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea that is said to help relieve stress. Beta-alanine has been used to prevent fatigue during exercise.

What would you do if you were there?↩🤔
Let me know in the comment section below. ⬇😊❤
I am always tweaking with my diet searching for optimal balance and I highly recommend that you do the same!
Last month, I went an entire month without eating gluten. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be and I did in fact notice a difference!
🍕 Cauliflower pizza is incredible btw.
Based on the results, I am going to severely limit my gluten going forward, but will still indulge occasionally. Remember, flexibility is key. 🔑
🍉 For the month of August. I am committed to consuming more fruit. I am excited to see how I feel and hopefully will discover some bomb new smoothie recipes .😋🙌
What will you commit to this month?🤔

So do you have your omelette’s with the yolk or just the whites? Eggs are the real deal when talking about superfoods, but there’s always been some debate on this issue as to whether the yolk does more harm than good. Only you can decide whether it contributes to your goals, but we can certainly share some good info to help you make that decision 😉. --
Eggs and egg whites are both complete proteins. “Complete” just means is has the adequate proportion of all nine of the essential amino acids necessary for our dietary needs. These amino acids are present in a pattern that matches very closely the pattern the human body needs.
Here are some more key differences:
🔹 The yolks do contain higher amounts of most amino acids 🔹 Egg whites provide the amino acids you need without the fat and cholesterol. 🔹 Egg yolks are packed with antioxidants, fatty acids, and carotenoids. 🔹 The white contains more than half the egg’s total protein and a majority of the egg’s niacin, riboflavin, magnesium, potassium and sodium
🔹 With the exception of the nutrients above, the yolk contains a higher proportion of the egg’s vitamins - B6 & B12, folic acid, pantothenic, and thiamine. All of the egg’s vitamins A, D, E and K are in the yolk. Egg yolks are one of the few foods naturally containing vitamin D.
🔹 The yolk also contains more calcium, copper, iron, manganese, phosphorus, selenium and zinc than the white.
🔹 The yolk contains the choline, which is important for brain development, liver & nervous system function, energy levels, & a healthy metabolism. --
So which would you go with? —
I personally love eating the whole egg 🥚 .

EGO PADARA TEVI NEDROŠU, ATSTĀJ BEZ PANĀKUMIEM. .. vainas ego vaino citus, ja nav rezultāta,šis ego saka :"tā ir viņu vaina. Tā ir manas draudzenes, mammas vaina" ...arī tava kautrība ir ego paveids, jo ja savu personības tipu izmanto kā attaisnojumu, lai nekļūtu par to, par ko gribētu kļūt, tas ir ego ... opozīcijas ego ceļ neslavu, cilvēki tenko gan mājās, darbā, ģimenē, sēj naidīgumu pat sociālajos tīklos. .... citu viedokļu ego, šie cilvēki vienmēr uztraucas par citu cilvēku viedokļiem. Tu klausies līdzcilvēkos, kas apgalvo, ka šo biznesu nevajadzētu sākt un tu padomā :"jā, tiešām!" ja tu klausīsies citu cilvēku viedokļos, tu dzīvosi kā 98% cilvēku.. tad tu saņemsi to pašu ko viņi..dari pretēji.. un klausies tos 2%,kas ir sasnieguši to ko vēlies tu.
es vēlos apņemties izbeigt sāpināt citus un kļūt par tādu, kas palīdz citiem augt.. esi avots citiem un citi vērsīsies pie tevis.
Kept things super simple last night with this no-bake veggie frittata 🥚🥕🍅🍃. One of my fave easy ways to eat up veggies! Simply sautée any veggies you have in the fridge (here I use carrots, asparagus, cherry tomatoes), then pour over 2 whisked eggs (or more if making for more people/leftovers), then I sprinkled with chopped parsley + goats cheese, covered + let cook for a few mins until eggs are done. Served with a side of whole wheat toast with 1/2 a mashed avocado to balance out the meal 💚
