bfast 🌨☃️❄️ chai latte, creamy buckwheat, almond milk, almond butter, maple, flax, banana, and cinnamon ☕️ creamy buckwheat is a good oatmeal alternative if you get bored of it like me, plus it’s a good source of complete protein. ✨
Foods that cause mucus build-up
Milk and its by-products cause excess mucus in the throat.
Processed wheat flour creates an unhealthy mucus build up in the body.
Avoid meat, fish, eggs and chicken when you have flu.
Mucus is a slippery secretion produced by the mucous membranes in the body. In the respiratory system, it traps small particles such as bacteria and dust that enter from the nose and prevents them from entering the body. In the digestive system, a layer of mucus along the inner walls of the stomach protects the cell linings of that organ from the highly acidic environment within it. Mucous also prevents tissues from drying out.
The presence of mucus in the nose and throat is normal, but increased mucus buildup can impede comfortable breathing. Mucus production in the respiratory tract can increase as a result of many common illnesses, such as the common cold.
Foods to increase mucus production
Certain foods are known increase mucous production on the wall of the small intestine. Knowing which foods cause it and eating them in moderation is the best way against respiratory issues.
Milk and milk products
Milk and milk products like yogurt, cheese, cream, cottage cheese and butter, cause excess mucus in the throat. They contain protein molecules called casein that increase secretions of mucus. Casein is difficult to digest and putrefies quickly, causing sinus infections. Dairy products also contain a sugar called lactose that also causes mucus.
Grains and nuts
All foods made from processed wheat flour create an unhealthy mucus build up in the body. Breads, pastas and processed cereals, and nuts, seeds and legumes cause mucus. In fact, cooked grains are also known to cause mucus.
Meats and oils
It is a good idea to avoid meat, fish, eggs and chicken when you have flu because they create nearly as much mucus as dairy products. Deep-fried foods also cause mucous build up..

There is no other job out there that can give me what this business has. Because I started my own business I have not had to leave my twins to go to a 9-to-5 job.
I’ve been able to stay home full-time working my business into the nooks & crannies of my day.
I have learned communication skills, how to prioritize & balance my days, I am constantly learning how to be a health coach, teaching others & myself how to live a healthier lifestyle.
I’ve learned the importance of the ingredients that go into your daily products, how to budget and save money.
Guys’ I could literally go on for hours telling you how amazing the business is & why these products are the best, but the simple truth is that you’ve got to try this for yourself.
I was so skeptical, I was afraid because I’m not a sales person, I don’t have a lot of friends plus I live in a small town. I didn’t have much money to start up, and I definitely didn’t have enough time juggling my twins and other house duties.
Honestly when my friend asked me to start up my own business I thought she was crazy!
I just didn’t see how it could work for me, but I followed the training and became coachable & within 3 months I got my first promotion. Shortly after I helped my business partner promote, and as of December 31st she has helped her business partner promote.
There’s only 4 levels in this business and we are all moving out way up. I will be promoting to The 2nd level & I’m taking anyone with me who’s ready to go!
Guys, stop watching & let me help you get started. Don’t let your fears or hesitations hold you back!

This is my backup dinner plans. And the protein bowl I ate (very thick vanilla protein shake with greens, strawberries and blueberries, poured into a bowl with granola and more strawberries & blueberries on top) was delish!! My original plan? Brown rice spaghetti and meat sauce. Why oh why did I try an untested meat sauce recipe?!? I have my own, after all, that’s clean (according to the Arbonne program) and from my Italian mother!! But, I deviated...and regretted it. And the brown rice pasta?! New brand...not as good. 🤷🏼♀️The kids and I all threw it out and didn’t finish...they ate something else while I recovered with my backup. I’m committed to this for 30 days (at least!) Before...I would’ve made a poor backup choice and regretted that too!!! Here’s to progress. And commitment. I feel great!!!! #cleaneating#arbonne30daystohealthyliving#arbonne#veganprotein#fullaminoacidscore
Some years are for growing; but this one, this one is for blooming🌼✨

🙏🏻 An eating meditation ~ ༄། ཨོམནིཔདྨེཧཱུ། 1. Breathe deeply, Before you pick up your food, take a couple of deep breaths to allow your body and mind to settle/ ~ 2. Look at your food, Think about where it comes from. Try to imagine the different ingredients in their original form and even the types of people who looked after the crops or animals/ ~ 3. Be appreciative, Without going on a guilt trip, appreciate the fact that you actually have food on your plate. This will bring the feeling of thankfulness that is at the heart of a meaningful mindfulness practice/ ~ 4. Note the little things, If you’re going to eat the food with your hands, notice its temperature, colors, and texture as you pick it up. When you move it to your mouth, shift your focus to the aroma and taste/ ~ 5. Analyze your response, Notice how your mind responds. Do you like what you’re eating/ Do you wish it were sweeter, saltier, a little less spicy/ Are you comparing it to previous meals/ ~ 6. Breathe deeply, Take a few deep breaths before you finish and leave the table. Remind yourself of how the plate looked when it was full and how it looks now. When you focus on your food, you’re less likely to overeat and consume things that don’t truly nourish you _/|\_ #mybucklistadventure .

Stuffed Butternut Squash 🧡
1 butternut squash
1 cup chickpeas
1/2 cup cooked (red) quinoa
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 of a red onion
2 garlic cloves
2 large handful of fresh spinach
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp harissa seasoning (or more to taste)
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C).
Cut butternut squash in half, scoop out the seeds and put both pieces on a lined baking sheet (cut side up).
Bake for 45 to 60 minutes (depending on its size) until fork tender.
Finely dice onion and garlic and sauté on medium heat with a splash of water until slightly browned and fragrant.
Add chickpeas, spinach (chopped), quinoa, lemon juice, pomegranate seeds, harissa seasoning, salt and pepper (to taste). When butternut squash is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool down a bit to scoop out some of the flesh (but just enough to have space for the filling). Stuff with the chickpea mix and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes or just enjoy as it is! 🧡
Add a drizzle of runny tahini on top!
Use the remaining butternut for another recipe, like hummus, baked goods, cheese sauce, a smoothie, oatmeal etc! (I scooped out about half a cup and used it to make hummus)
I always cook a full cup of quinoa instead of just the small amount necessary for a recipe and refrigerate the rest for another meal.
Kale would also work well instead of spinach (or both😋)
✖️GOING VEGAN in 2019✖️
BIAS: “It’s so easy to hit your protein!”
TRUTH: You gotta put some thought behind it.
Some vegan bodybuilders just take the easy route.
Asked about the common question “But where do vegans get their protein from?” they just say: “It’s so easy to hit your protein as a vegan, just eat enough calories”!
Remember when they say this, they’re talking to the general population, following a SAD (standard american diet), not to people who actually want to build muscle & lose fat on a vegan diet.
Because yes the general population may only need 70,80,90g of protein.
Not the case for you my fellow vegan fitness enthusiast, wanting to lose fat and gain muscle!
Because if you’d actually follow that advice, you’d be wasting years of your life!
You’d be asking yourself why you’re not losing fat & gaining muscle on a 2.400 kcal, 100g protein diet.
Thats what you see in the left picture.
Let’s say you eat 3x the meal on the left, you end up with 2.400 kcals, for a whopping 100g protein. #wow 🙄
This does not optimize muscle growth, and for most of you induces literally 0g fat loss. 🤷🏻♂️
So put some thought behind your meals, use lean vegan protein sources such as soy, gluten, protein powder, fake meat and so on to optimize your results & have fun with your diet! 💯
If you struggle to put that together for yourself, shoot me a DM and we can talk Coaching.
Btw: I DON’T currently offer STANDALONE meal plans or nutrition guides, just within my Coaching, which also includes Workout & Mindset Coaching.
