Sometimes you need to Treat Yo Self, am I right? ⠀
Treating yourself is about splurging on something that makes you feel good or curbs a craving. For me this used to be chocolate, cake or ice cream. Because one Freddo Frog never hurt right? ⠀
Well for me it did. My dairy intolerance went undiagnosed for 24 years and it turned out that every little Freddo was doing me wrong! ⠀
After changing my diet and experiencing real health and wellness, I’ll never look back. Because what could be better than treating your body right with healthier foods that nourish and heal? ⠀
I say have your cake and it it too! For example this amazing creation is a raw cake dessert bowl, totally dairy free, refined sugar free and vegan. Amazeballs 💚⠀
(Dessert from @healthfreakcafe 🙌)⠀
What is one condiment or seasoning that you always use on salads/dishes to make them more interesting? Comment below. 👇🏽🥗😋
I've never really been a condiment fan. Most are packed full of sugar, sodium & other chemical 'ingredients', which are usually represented as numbers on nutrition panels. 😯🤷🏼♀️
That's why I ALWAYS have coconut aminos in the fridge incase of emergencies. 🚨 (You've probably noticed, I like to be prepared for various types of food emergencies). 😆 My collection of coconut aminos has saved me so many times from boring AF salads that I've thrown together in 2 minutes from my fridge clean outs. Plus, it's a great alternative to soy sauce.
Other times, I'll just throw together some mixed herbs, Himalayan crystal salt, garlic or just mix through some pesto. Let's be honest, pesto makes almost everything taste amazing! 🤤
Hope you're all having a wonderful week. ✨
Cenita ligera? Nada mejor que una crema de auyama con trocitos de Queso Crema @quesosmichel por arriba, acompañada de casabe😍😋
Sugerencia📝 : decórala con semillas de auyama por arriba y el queso en el centro.
Si estás cuidando las calorías, prepara tu crema con agua o con leche descremada🙃
Quien dijo que comer saludable tiene que ser un sacrificio?🤩
Not my best leg work, I admit! But that didn’t stop me from having a good workout session with my partner @max_jaaaaahnson! Legs were killer and I still have some soreness from Sunday left over. But I powered through 3 rounds of circuit 1 (viewed in video, 3 rounds of Circuit 3 (completely skipped 2- I don’t think my legs could handle) and finished with a bear crawl race. My first time doing bear crawls and I think I started off well. Going backwards is definitely a challenge, but I’m glad I did them.
There’s definitely moves that can use some fine tuning and tweaking, but it’ll also be fun to see what I can do once I get my flexibility up as well as condition my body to this new training!!

Huge congratulations to Alpha Meals Athlete @austinspringermma for winning his fight last night on Dana Whites UFC Contender Series. -
Austin was brought into this fight last minute, replacing another fighter who could not participate, only weeks prior. Austin pushed hard, showing an extreme amount of heart and grit, getting a submission in the last 60 seconds of the 3rd round to win the fight. -
We couldn’t be prouder of this badass fighter and father, a true alpha with a heart of gold.

🎉🎈Dad’s Birthday dinner!!! Made @bewellbykelly’s Butter Lettuce Shrimp Tacos 🌮🦐 w/ @thrivemkt’s coconut wraps bc the butter lettuce were small... had to secure them somehow! Sides included @traderjoes cauli-gnocchi w/pesto, corn, garlic bread (French baguette from @lees_sandwiches added some garlic @fourthandheart ghee w/extra garlic and parsley) @gtskombucha @cusquenaperu #arribaperu 🇵🇪 #birthdaymeal#balance#healthyishmeal#delicious#mealideas
Crazy good lunch at @erewhonmarket today: delicious Asian chicken salad, the best freakin’ falafels I’ve ever had (just look at that color!), yummy veggie wrap for @darkandstormyceramics, and an out of this world chocolate avocado mousse infused with coffee. Body and mind fully nourished!! 💘💘💘
Finally decided to see what all the hype is about with the @traderjoes cauliflower gnocchi. And let me tell you..the hype is REAL 🙌🏼! Only 5 ingredients and tastes delicious. Is it weird that I added cauliflower though? 🤣
Followed everyone’s recommendation and did not add the water like the package suggests and they turned out perfectly golden instead of soggy. .
👉🏼 deets: 1️⃣ add @fourthandheart california garlic ghee to a pan on medium high heat 2️⃣ add tomatoes, broccoli, and cauliflower to pan - let cook for 4ish minutes, then remove from pan 3️⃣ add more ghee if needed and cook gnocchi for 8m - shake the pan while cooking to crisp all sides 4️⃣ once finished mix with homemade pesto 5️⃣ add @organicgirl arugula, salmon, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, sundried tomatoes, and microgreens.
Homemade pesto 🌱:
2T pine nuts
1 clove garlic
1T lemon juice
2T nutritional yeast
3T (ish) water
Manna Haven , Byron Bay
Everything is 100% vegan and more than half of the menu is Gf as well! @jason.pizzino and I had the lasagna and a choice of salad. The small plate option satisfied my hangry self😅
There are two plate options -small plate: 2 serves $13
-Large plate: 3 serves $16
Great value for some clean eats! Similar to Govinda style but not too salty or oily! Wonderful seasoning and spices and beautiful garden space. Delicious dessert options and all of them were GF which is EPIC!
MOM, THE MEATLOAF! finally home for a few days & needed to meal prep somethin so I decided to make this grass fed & finished meatloaf-ish type of dish stuffed with kale, spinach, sundried tomatoes, an egg + some spices & @paleochef ketchup topped with turkey bacon & a paleo chimichurri sauce 😋 might look a little messy but it is realll good & realll easy. Recipe will be posted soon!
One of the best lunches I have ever had (looking back at it brings a tear to my eye 😢). Cauliflower fried rice with peas & 🥕, then ✌🏻 rye toasts: one with 🥑 and smoked salmon and another with avocado, fried egg, and pumpkin seeds 🤤
I’m currently finishing up some todos but my mental energy felt like it CRASHED today 😴 so I’m off to bed asap to read a book and chill... it’s just one of those days, ya know? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Hope you had a happy Wednesday! 💖
My go-to dinner right here 👉🏻Organic Pastured Turkey burger on a bed of Leafy Greens 🌱🍃🌿+ 1/2 Avocado for healthy fat👌🏻
🔸I haven't always eaten meat. It feels strange to even share a photo of a piece of meat on my plate. In the past, I was vegetarian, then vegan. In fact, if I could have sustained either of these two ways of eating long-term I would have...but, my body internally told me it wasn't working out...something was wrong.🔸I got some routine lab work done and soon found out I was severely iron deficient, despite eating greens galore, beans and plant protein powders. I couldn't believe it. Learning the symptoms of iron deficiency, I checked almost every box...
✅cold hands and feet
✅irritability ✅hair loss
✅lack of focus
I don't blame myself 100%, as I was following fad diets and I also didn't want to eat animals. I do however believe a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle can work for certain people and more specifically, I believe these diets are especially needed in times of cleansing or healing from certain chronic illness.🔸For me individually though, it was not sustainable long-term. My body requires more iron and I am not willing to supplement 2-3x a day forever. I do however, advocate for Bio-individually...a concept I learned while studying Nutrition. This is the concept that our bodies are different and therefore may require different nutrients at any given point of time given it's demands...there is no one-size-fits-all diet.🔸It took me a while to accept that I needed to eat meat again, even if I was eating it sustainably (organic, pastured, wild). I share this because fad diets and a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work for everyone and that's okay. It's important to listen to your body and do what works for you and what makes you feel good.🔸I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below. Also check out the link in my bio for more information about the importance of iron. #iron#irondeficiency#hairloss#alopecia#pcos#eatyourgreensout#vitamins#minerals#nutrition#nutritionist#health#healthy#foodie#foodporn#instafood#healthcoach#balance#lifestyle#hairgrowth#intuitiveeating#inspiration#glutenfree
Roasted cauliflower salad with crispy chickpeas and lemon-tahini dressing!!! Roast cauliflower florets & onions seasoned with salt pepper olive oil at 400degrees for 40mins. Followed @minimalistbaker recipe for crispy chickpeas and tossed everything with tahini dressing (tahini, lemon juice, water to thin it out, cumin, cayenne, salt)!
My mini grocery haul today was filled with keto essentials. My favorite locally roasted coffee for BPC, some avocado, core electrolyte water and hint water to help with staying hydrated and some meat! I have been making an effort to buy local, organic and grass fed which is more expensive but totally worth it! For breakfast I had duck egg and sauerkraut and lunch (not pictured) I packed a salad and brought to meet up with a friend for a picnic! Dinner was crockpot green Chile chicken “tostadas”- the shell was just baked cheddar that got all nice and crispy! Stayed on track with my macros and even found the Lilly’s dark chocolate made with stevia ice been reading about all over keto forums 🙌🏻
I asked what you all wanted to see more of on my page and that was meal prep and recipes 💫 I am actually the worst at following recipes as I make everything from scratch (as I am allergic to wheat 🌾) and usually it all just comes from my head not a recipe 😂 here is my MEAL PREP (for one day but it was all x 4) that I have this week and it was made on Monday for Tuesday through Friday 👌🏽 .
🌵 BREAKFAST - vanilla chia pudding (RECIPE / combine 3 cups unsweetened almond coconut milk & 3/4 cups chia seeds - I use @thechiaco & 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a bowl, set in the fridge overnight and serve following morning) I served my chia pudding with 2 tablespoons of @chobaniau greek yogurt, 4 fresh strawberries sliced into quarters and a few raw almonds, pepitas and sunflower seeds 🍓 .
🌵 SNACK 1 - one pink lady apple and natural (100% peanuts) crunchy peanut butter - I slice my apple up and spread a light layer of peanut butter on the apple 🍎 .
🌵 LUNCH - 2 chicken breasts cooked with olive oil, @mingleseasoning and fresh garlic (to taste) served with 5 florets of broccoli (quickly steamed as I like them hard more than soft and don't like draining out the nutrients) and mashed sweet potato (about a 1/4 of a small sweet potato cut into chunks and boiled in water - I use a steamer with the broccoli in the top and the chunks of sweet potato in the bottom in the water) 🥦 .
🌵 SNACK - @bounce_aus and a homemade banana muffin (RECIPE / Recipe:
1 1/2 cups flour (can be the usual self raising or whole meal or coconut), 2 egg - whisked, sprinkle of cinnamon, 3 over ripe bananas - mashed, 1/4 cup organic honey. Pre heat oven to 180 Degrees Celsius. Mix everything into a bowl. Once mixed well, fold in the berries and spoon the mixture into muffin tins. Slice one fresh banana and pop on top of the muffins. Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned) 🍌 .
🌵 DINNER - not pictured as it is made fresh each night 🍱 .

✨ CELLULITE ✨
Let's be honest, we all hate it. It's not a cute look, but it's there and it's difficult to get rid of.
I don't know if you can tell, in my rooms lighting it's hard to see, but I so have cellulite on my hamstrings. It's something I currently just have to live with right now. When you're bulking, you're not also just building muscle, you're gaining fat as well. When I'm cutting down next year, majority (hopefully all 😆) of it will disappear. There are other remedies you can do to try to get rid of it, none of which is cheap. There are laser treatments ($$$). There are also creams which I personally don't believe in because I don't know how a bottle of lotion can get rid of fat. If that were the case, I'm sure the bikini competitors wouldn't be starving themselves. My point being is, you gotta learn how to embrace it when you can't get rid of it. Every woman gets it in the bulking phase. It's normal. And yes, I'll be showing up to the beach in my bikini and rocking it because hellooo thicker legs.
Excuse the mess in my room, I'm in the middle of doing laundry 😆
