These taquitos from @thedefineddish were 🤤 I used the turkey and black bean recipe and changed it a tad to make it Paleo friendly. I subbed in shredded chicken (used a rotisserie and cheated), and sautéed onions, peppers, and spinach. I used @sietefoods almond flour tortillas and had some of their chips on the side. SO good and so easy! We’ll definitely be making these again soon.
Collagen and probiotics make a great team for gut health, mental clarity and strong toned skin. -
As we age,and this is from about 25 our collagen production decreases and this is how wrinkles and looser skin come about. -
By taking collagen internally like my organic collagen and probiotic also packed with vitamin c to transport the collagen and other micro nutrients, you can negate the decline in your body. -
The marine collagen we used has 1.5 x the absorption rate of bovine, chicken and porcine collagen and I think a much more organic source. -
If you are aware the pesticide round up which is used everywhere in our gardens and parks affects glycine in your body the main component of collagen. So it’s more important than ever before to take a collagen supplement if you truly want to stay healthy.

Let's take a minute to talk about goals & achievements!🏆 I always preach (esp with my degree & future profession as an RD), the importance of REGULAR physical activity. No matter how busy you are - you can do it!👍🏻 But guess what?! I wasn't even following what I was preaching (I know bad, right). •
So a little over 3 months ago I decided to make a change! I told myself that I was making a commitment to my health to start "working out" on a regular basis no matter how busy I got because anyone can do it!
The picture on the left is me ~2 months ago starting the beginning of an 80 day workout program. Me on the right is half way through that program (day 40 woot woot)🤗 Let me tell ya I feel amazing! Not only have I gotten stronger physically, but mentally as well. I feel so good in my skin and loving the muscle results (even though they aren't super prevalent right now). •
Just remember, you can do anything you put your mind to! Don't make excuses, start your progress today because you only have one body and one life so love it💕
Monday has become my favorite day of the week since becoming a mom. I used to hate Monday’s lol... but now I look forward to them. It’s a day to reset and get back on track. Not just with the kids but with myself.
I took the ultimate final of the last 17 months... the NCLEX👩🏼⚕️ And now, I patiently wait, while cooking all the things and watching all the Netflix 🙌🏻
To all of you that still have finals, YOU GOT THIS!!!
But actually haven’t even started my Netflix-ing yet, I’ve been gyming and yoga-ing like no ones business and catching up on folding those 3 loads of laundry I had waiting for me the past month😂
Last nights leftover #chickenparm hit the spot again tonight after I re-crisped it in the toaster oven. Paired with TJ’s gnocchi was just what these muscles needed #postyoga .
Weekend away🙌...into a 10 hour work day😩 ...into a 45 minute appointment😣 ...and 45 min commute😢 ...then home at 9p😭 ...nothing better than having a healthy fresh @kettlebellkitchen meal waiting for me to get me back on track!😃💪🏻

DIY dry shampoo!!🌿🌿🌿
tbh i’ve only started making my own this past summer and I’m so glad I did- lasts longer, works better, overall cheaper, and natural ingredients!
here’s what’s up!
if you are a brunette you’ll need cocoa powder for sure
if you’re a red head you’ll need some paprika
if you’re blonde the arrowroot powder will do!
I personally am a brunette with a balayage and lots of blonde highlights so I do 3/4 full with arrowroot powder, 1/4 full with cocoa powder and 3-4 drops of oils to make it smell better. I mix it all up and put into this reusable bottle. maybe baby powder was in it before?? I can’t remember 😂
some people put it in a different container and use a makeup brush to apply it.
if you’re blonde you can do it with 100% arrowroot powder and a dash of cocoa, if you’re a darker brunette you can add more cocoa powder than I do. •
here are some oil suggestions if you’re looking for something more than just making it smell good=
dandruff- lavender or wintergreen
dry hair- sandalwood or lavender
fragile hair- clary sage, lavender, or thyme
greasy hair-cypress, lemon, or rosemary
for growth or hair loss-lavender, rosemary, thyme
****you can also substitute the arrowroot powder for cornstarch
this is easy to make!! don’t worry about getting it the “exact” color for your hair color cause ya always have to rub it in a little when you apply it 😊😊🌿🌿💚💚💚

How to live a healthy life: 101.
Tonight we went to my grandmas for dinner. We all agreed pizza was easiest to order & pick up. Was I going to say no & bring my own meal? No. I’m going to have pizza with my grandmother (& brother/sister-in-law/& adorable nephew 💕). BUT what I did do... is I also brought a @1stphorm Level-1 protein shake. —
Pizza is mainly carbs (the breading), a good amount of fat (the cheese), and a little amount of protein (cheese or protein toppings).
SO! To stick to my goals, I brought my own shake. I had both pizza & my protein shake. I made a not so macro friendly meal into a decent one!
This, my friends, is what I call living a healthy life 🙌🏽. Ya eat the pizza & you drink the protein shake. Your body & your soul is happy!
What’s your favorite kind of pizza 🍕 ?? Mine is probably BBQ chicken pizza 😍!
