Couldn’t help but stop juice bar earlier to try the autumn spice 🍁 apple, carrot, ginger, maca, cashews, banana, nutmeg & cinnamon 💓 I added protein to it. Perfect for our cold front. It is sooo delicious, it tastes like fall. Almost like pumpkin pie/spice but without any pumpkin.
My breakfast :) Dave’s killer 21 grain and seed bread thin sliced (high in grains and 9 net for 1 slice, low GI :)), half an avocado, some earthbound power greens, topped with 2 cage free eggs, and sprinkled with pink salt & hemp seeds 💓
Sometimes we all need that extra support; someone to cheer us on when we're doing great and someone to keep us going when we feel like giving up. You can be that someone and you might need that someone, especially when it comes to exercise. We can easily put it off but should we?
Become part of group of women sharing their own struggles and victories as they take on a 3-week online fitness program. I'll be right there with you.

Much needed cold brew today 😍 “cold front” is coming down here in south Texas this evening. We are ready for some 60s here, though it won’t last the whole week :(. _____________________________________________________________
Steep 18s organic medium/roast cold brew with nutpods French vanilla! My first time using nutpods. I love the subtle vanilla taste, it’s tasty. I want to try the pumpkin spice but amazon only has a 12 pack. I’m always looking for healthier alternatives as it’s what makes me feel good 💓
Don’t have time to eat healthy? Do you rely on fast food and processed snacks when you’re on the go? 🏃🏼♂️
The answer is simple, it's fruit! Fruit is not only incredibly nutritious, but it’s also convenient and comes in it’s own easy to peal package 🍐🍓
What are the nutritional benefits of fruit? Fruit are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories and have zero cholesterol. Fruit also reduce the risk of developing many diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer. How? Fruit contain phytonutrients that protect the immune system, boost detoxification enzymes, modulate gene expression and repair DNA❗️
That’s right, the nutrients in fruit can REPAIR DNA. In a study testing the ability of foods to repair DNA, lemons, persimmons, strawberries, and apples were effective when eaten at low dosages
There’s one out there that you’ll love- juicy watermelon, sweet blueberries, tart cherries- they’re all perfect in their own way. Fruit can be purchased fresh, frozen, dried and blended 🤤
Aim for 5+ servings of fruit per day. Incorporate fruit into your daily routine by adding fruit to your oatmeal, preparing a smoothie with fruit, or choosing fruit for dessert.
Dinner~ hubby wanted spaghetti. I used organic edamame pasta (I’ve had it for a while but haven’t tried till now. Low carb and high protein 👌🏻), no sugar added lucinis Tuscan marinara, and added organic grilled chicken (cooked up with olive oil). I also added 1 tbsp of vital farms butter to noodles after I strained(needed some more fat in here!). I had a little bit of spaghetti left over. . He had regular pasta, with marinara and ground beef rather than chicken. This was so good.. can’t believe it’s healthy 😂 Also, is frank a dr. Zevia :)
Ummm okay...This is my first time ever doing a “Pilates” workout and my legs are dying lol. Do any you do these videos? I didn’t know where to start so I just jumped into @blogilates October calendar. Even if I don’t follow it, I needed some sort of direction as to what to do. I really liked this. I didn’t even think I’d sweat.. HA! Yeah right! And my daughter decided to be an extra weight during my bridges so oh my that was a burn 😅 I think I’m going to have to do Pilates again. And I’m a “heavier” girl. That doesn’t stop me! I really don’t know how it is in person, I would love to try it though. I searched for pop Pilates near me and closet is 116 miles away :( someone needs to become an instructor down here in south Texas. I was torn between this and just strength training.. but I really didn’t feel like strength training and wanted to do this. I’ve learned through my journey that you need to do what you feel like doing or you’ll resent the journey to health.. it shouldn’t be a chore, but a lifestyle! Currently drinking 1.5 scoops of sun warrior chocolate protein while I put groceries away (hubby was nice enough to go pick up curb side 😁 he’s been so supportive 💓)

Love this little furry boy so much! Went for a long walk in the fields of Essex, enjoying the last warm days... did you know that walking is the best exercise for your heart, muscles and blood sugar maintenance (which all bring your weight to the norm)? Well, get a dog and start walking. You will become accountability partners naturally! 🌺❤️🌹😅 . Just in case, if some kind of pain is stopping you for taking a courage, please drop me a line- I have an essential oil blend which may be in assistance and I can post you a sample! Because I know how it may hurt! #walking#essex#heart#bloodsugar#diabetesprevention#healthylifestyle#dogsofinstagram#dog#londondogs#autumn#countryside
My breakfast! Have to make due with what’s in the fridge. It is delish though. A big handful of power greens (which shrunk considerably 😂), 2 eggs, half an avocado, and 4 slices of apple! I sprinkled my savory foods with pink salt. I used avocado oil spray to “sauté” my greens and fry my eggs. Didn’t want anything too heavy this morning, the husband want spaghettis later and I have either edamame and chickpea pasta I can try 🤔. I’m playing around with portions to see what satisfies me and keeps me full and what doesn’t. Trial and error. Also drinking another small cup of coffee 😅 didn’t get much sleep with the little one. 💞 Been keeping an eye on my blood sugar and my readings have been great 💓
What an amazing shot! :scream: See More here @diabetesdaily229
For many people taking part in our challenge this month, running in a city is the only option. But there are plenty of great things about pounding the pavements in an urban environment. One of our amazing runners, Rachel, shares why she’s come to enjoy running under the bright lights: https://blogs.diabetes.org.uk/?p=10931

Someone recently told me, "awareness doesn't change anything". And I thought if that isn't the most narrow minded thing to say. 🙄
Every single day I go to work, something happens that reminds me why I love my job and I love spreading awareness over all sorts of social and health issues. Why doesn't everyone enjoy being kind, and helping out another human? Its literally the best feeling ever.
When I was approached about applying for my job, I knew it was from God, our coalition isn't faith based but my goodness, I love getting to be the hands and feet of Jesus, whether that's giving gloves to a homeless person or talking to other adults about ways to help the needy. If your faith isnt moving you to do something, then it's just a religion. God forbid, I ever feel like I know everything and can't take a minute to listen to another human's real needs. #mentalhealth#convoyofhope#nationalwalktoschoolday#childinjuryprevention#communitybabyshower#Chicago#diabetesprevention#latinofestival#awareness#community#faithinaction#iamsecond
Pumpkin smoothie/shake 🎃 I based it off the eatingwell.com recipe I found but changed a few things. It called for yogurt but don’t have any so it didn’t come out thick. 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 cup of pumpkin purée, 1-2 tbsp of sugar free syrup (need to find a healthier alternative to maple syrup), 1 tbsp of pumpkin pie spice (phew, and I really taste it lol), 1/2 a banana, 2 tbsps of flax seed meal, and I also added a little less than 1 tbsp of coconut oil and 2 scoops of vital proteins collagen. Wanted it to be more balanced. I would make it again and play around with the portions.
This is true for long term health and for day to day energy and wellness. The problem is that most people don’t really care, or acknowledge this, until they are sick. .
The biggest frustration is that sometimes we’re misinformed and we think the foods we’re eating are very healthy when in fact they are making us sick
I don’t understand why there isn’t a mass lawsuit against the sugar association. Did you know that in the 1950s the sugar association realized through studies that it was sugar that was the main cause for heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes and most major health conditions ???? This was hidden from us for over 50 years!!! The sugar association paid Harvard professors to do studies on fat and falsify information to make fat the bad guy.
All these years later, the people who were most health conscious are sick. They followed the “fat free” diet and the focus was on carbohydrates! We were told carbohydrates were healthy. Juice was healthy, fat free bread 🥖 was healthy ... 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Now studies are proving that sugar is poison. Sugar triggers blood sugar spikes and inflammation leading to heart disease, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s and many many more chronic illness’s and diseases. .
As a dietitian for 20 years, I see this, I know this to be true. The healthiest diet includes a plethora of colorful 🌈 vegetables, protein protein protein ( but less red meat), and healthy fats with small amounts of high fiber carbohydrates.
Please contact me for more information. I can get you on the right path to achieve optimal nutritional health! Comment, DM me, email me, or click on the link in bio.

Made up my own workout last night to do today for upper body. Currently dead. Lmao. (Yes, I realize they aren’t the exercises proper names, but it’s how I know them 😂) currently drinking a post workout smoothie. 8 oz of almond milk, handful of power greens, 1.5 scoops of sun warrior chocolate protein, 1/4 a banana, 1 tbsp of no sugar added peanut butter, and 1 tbsp of flax seed meal. I had half and apple + tbsp of peanut butter for my pre-workout. It definitely helped me push through. I understand it’s not really “keto” but I am trying to be more balanced, and eating my little carbs around my strength training which is beneficial. this is my journey to health. I’ve lost 80 lbs and know exactly how my body Works with what nutrition and when. I’ve realized I don’t need outside influence to do what I know is best. My main goal is to be balanced, control my blood sugar, and eat healthier + plus get my fitness back. Staying lower carb is still a necessity to help me prevent diabetes. I’m not doing this because I’m craving refined carbs. I’m craving whole food carbs.. it’s as if my body is asking me for it. Anyway, tired of explaining myself... I underestimated this workout 😂 my arms are so sore already. Definitely want to figure out a more back focused workout, much more difficult without a gym but it’s not impossible. #athomeworkout#nogymneeded#workoutfromhome
Take out for dinner: bowl from local sushi place. Grilled chicken topped with some avocado, jalapeños, and green beans, sitting on stringed zucchini and topped with some spicy mayo. My husband and I shared a ebi shrimp roll that was wrapped in cucumber 🥒 Been busy and out and about all day and so tired. I didn’t even get my intended workout in but I’ve been on my feet and pushed a heavy ass cart at Costco so that counts as cardio right? 😂 I’m going to check my glucose at 1 hour and than 2 to see if the spicy mayo spiked my blood sugar. I know everywhere makes it differently. Feel like I’ve gotten so much green in today 🥗🤩
Chicken Caesar with cage free chicken from protein house ^_^ I’ve literally been wanting a big ass chicken Caesar salad forever now and had been wanting to try it here. It was delicious. I tried to avoid as much croutons as possible, mistaking a few for pieces of chicken 🙄 I ate in the car due to running errands and being really hungry. I’m going to do some grocery shopping today to get a few things.
In just a couple more weeks we will be in November, which is Diabetes Awareness Month. 1 in 3 adults have diabetes, and many don't event know it. Take a self assessment at www.doihaveprediabetes.org to see if you are at risk. THEN, if you are, it's ok because you can make a few changes to your lifestyle routine and decrease your risk. I will be teaching a 4 week series called "Eat to Beat: Diabetes Prevention through Nutrition," starting November 8th. Learn about making simple changes to your eating, cooking, and shopping routines to prevent diabetes. Link to join in my bio.
Starting to share my data (hint: #LCHF + #CGM = 👁🎨, thank you 🥚🥓🥩🍖🥗🥛) Impact on glucose using a continuous gluose monitor after ingestion over a 2 week period of a low-carbohydrate, healthy fat (LCHF) diet in an individual without known pre-diabetes or diabetes. No industrial vegetable bean/seed oils were ingested (meats finished with butter). As the charts shows, the interstitial glucose excursion were minimal in a non-diabetic, probably insulin sensitive person.
There were two moderate carbohydrate ingestions during this period, with mild to moderate glucose excursions, however with little to no effect on average glucose values.
I am not interested in telling other people what to eat. However, I realize that I enjoy and can sustain a real food, healthy fat, low carbohydrate eating pattern quite easily, with good results.
While I am not diabetic or pre-diabetic, I'm awed by the ability of the human body to regulate itself and the ability of humans in which regulation is compromised to achieve their life goals.
Reminder that I have no ties to, nor have I received any gifts, honoraria, meals, from any food, pharmaceutical, device, or diagnostics manufacturer. #ConflictFree#NoDollarsforThisDoc#LCHF#CGM#ContinuousGlucoseMonitor#ThisCenturyBestCentury#DiabetesPrevention#DiabetesReversal#MetabolicHealth#Nof1Experiment#Geek

It is a unique vegetable-fruit that has several anti-diabetic properties including charantin, vicine, and polypeptide-p. Together, these work to reduce blood sugar levels. It has many other healing properties and has been used in traditional medicine for fever, burns, painful menstruation, and skin conditions.

I am still eating ketogenic and have lost 25 pounds in a year and a half. One of my classmates at Kamehameha Schools told me he is down 36 pounds in one month eating ketogenic LOL I asked him what is his secret. He said the Carb Manager app. I have been using the free version and so far love it. Let us get healthy Hawaiians. I will update if and when I lose more weight. #HealthyHawaiians#Hawaiians#DiabetesPrevention

In July of this year, My nephew Vince, a 13 year old boy was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, a medical complication where your blood sugar is so high that it becomes acidic and begins to harm your organs. His doctors said he was extremely lucky. Most children with this diagnosis arrive already in a coma, unable to wake up from the night before. They were able to stabilize his blood sugar, and learning to manage Type 1 Diabetes became his new normal. Not all kids are that lucky. Many get misdiagnosed with the flu and never get to go home, but because my sister-in-law, brother and their amazing team of doctors knew the symptoms for diabetes, he would be ok.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for Type 1 Diabetes. It is an autoimmune disease that attacks the pancreas and causes it to stop functioning. Everyday for the rest of his life, he will have to endure multiple shots and finger pricks to make sure his blood sugar is in the safe range. He will have to calculate every carb he eats to match it with insulin so his blood doesn’t turn too acidic.
This Sunday, we will be walking in Staten Island to help raise awareness for JDRF. I encourage everyone to please make a small donation or join our team to help fund research to improve the lives of everyone challenged by Type 1 Diabetes.
Vince is so close to reaching his goal of raising $10,000. Please help him get there by clicking the link in my bio (website area) listed below, or copying and pasting the link to make your donation and showing your support today.
