Alguém já te disse que você está inflamado? Você sabe o que significa estar inflamado?
Primeiramente entendam, a inflamação aguda em resposta natural do corpo à presença de uma doença ou quando ocorre um trauma ou causada por um agente patológico, é muito importante que aconteça pois ajuda na recuperação, essa sinalização é extremamente importante.
Agora o que eu quero falar aqui com vocês hoje é , quando essa inflamação não é mais aguda e torna-se crônica e sub-clinica, um ciclo que é ativado de maneira silenciosa e constante.
A Inflamação sub-clinica é perigosa pois abre portas para muitas outras doenças, como AVC, Câncer, Doenças Cardiovasculares e Alzheimer .
A Inflamação sub-clinica crônica é uma das maiores causas de mortes no mundo.
É possível sairmos desse quadro inflamação sub-clinica??
O fator determinante para isso: suas ESCOLHAS!!!
Estilo de vida e hábitos saudáveis, principalmente de alimentação funcional baseada em alimentos que auxiliam o nosso próprio organismo a gerar defesa anti-inflamatória.
Prática de atividade física regular no mínimo 3x na semana, sono de qualidade (SONO REPARADOR),exposição à luz solar e controle do stress contribuem para proteger seu corpo desse quadro inflamatório.
DICA- alimentos anti-inflamatórios- Peixes ( Ômega 3- suplementação quando prescrita adequadamente super eficaz), Cúrcuma, chá de Moringá e vegetais em geral.

Caramelized bananas are currently my favorite toast topping, and this morning I discovered that they taste even better on top of a thick layer of chia seed jam 🤤
Best thing about this loaded piece of @foodforlifebaking toast was it only took about ten minutes to throw together 👏🏼
To make the jam, I heated a cup of frozen blueberries and strawberries in a saucepan over medium heat and mashed them with a wooden fork until soft. I added in a heaping tbsp of @salbachia white chia seeds and let the mixture cook on medium heat until most of the liquid had evaporated and a thick jam was left.
To make the sautéed bananas, I sprayed a little avocado oil in a stovetop pan on low heat and cooked them for a few minutes in total on each side, flipping every minute to make sure they didn’t stick to the pan.
Topped the toast with some coconut flakes, shelled hemp seeds, and some @soomfoods tahini (drizzled that on after this pic) 💥💥
Have a good Monday friends!
Jumping into race week like: 🔥🤪🏃🏼♀️💩💨🤯 Somehow, @runrocknroll is this weekend and yours truly is not nearly as prepared as she thought she would be. 🤷🏼♀️
Yesterday’s goal was to run 7-9 miles to see how I feel but tummy troubles prevented that from happening. I took it easy and thought I’d be feeling better today, but unfortunately I don’t.
Regardless of Sunday’s outcome, my primary goal is to have fun 💃🏼🎶 [even if I need to walk] and come out injury and pain free. 💪🏻 Both should be doable thanks to good company 💑 and crossfit gains. 🏋🏼♀️
Who else is running this weekend?
Postpartum body image update!
I’ve shared before that I have no intentions of “bouncing back,” and that my philosophy is “bounce forward.” And I’ve also shared that I have diastatis recti. So where am I now, almost 6 months postpartum?
Most of the time, I’m amazed this body created a whole other body. I see my strength and my abs returning even with the little exercise I have time for. I feel more and more like myself and more comfortable in my new skin. I am surprised at how far I’ve come in just 6 months! I’m 6lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight, but my body is completely different (except my arms 🤷🏽♀️)
I’m not at all self-conscious about my c-section scar or the few stretch marks I got, but I’m having a really hard time getting used to having flabbier stomach skin and a pooch until my abs close. I saw a pelvic floor PT and asked her to give me some real expectations. She said I could reduce my belly 80% with exercise, but the extra skin was here to stay and would likely get worse over my next pregnancies. 🤷🏽♀️
There are so many positive #postpartumbody posts on the ‘gram, which is AMAZING!! But I’ve been embracing that it’s okay to struggle to love the new image in the mirror. It’s okay to feel discouraged and frustrated and grateful and strong all at the same time. It’s okay to want to cover up with high-waisted jeans, flowy tops and one-pieces, but also want to flaunt this amazing human-creating machine! It’s okay that I want to workout everyday because it feels good to feel stronger, and to also want to push it off for more baby snuggles (or a nap!). I’m in a lifelong relationship with this body and it won’t always be positive (just like any other relationship!) and once I took the pressure off of myself to always feel positive about my postpartum body, I felt a whole lot better!
PS these pictures were taken 10 seconds apart. I’ve been loving these high-waisted leggings from @outdoorvoices because they give me the most confidence meaning when I’m out, I can focus on showing Ellington the world rather than being self-conscious about my middle.
the dreamiest breakfast to start the week off in the best way 😎
prepped a batch of oats last night using a combo of steel cut and rolled oats for the creamiest oats. topped them off with diced peaches, 1/2 cup of steel cut oats, 1/2 cup of rolled oats cooked in almond milk, vanilla, and sea salt. topped them off banana, pecans, almond butter, and a drizzle of honey
happiest monday, friends! 💛
Best way to start off a Monday: a loaded @lovvelavva yogurt bowl w fresh berries from the farmers market, @purely_elizabeth granola, a sprinkle of hemp seeds + local bee pollen. wishing you a great start to the week!! xx ✨
HAPPY MONDAY ALL!! 👋 it’s Steph from @findingfullness here and today I’ll be taking over my FAVE granola company @micheles_granola!! 💕I am super passionate about delicious and nutritious foods so Michele’s unique and wholesome granola is right up my alley. 😀Follow along for a FUN SURPRISE that I guarantee will shake your Monday blues!! 👌And if that surprise doesn’t work, I suggest whipping up these sweet and savory quesadillas. They are so delicious and sure to make any day better! I stuffed two flax tortillas, one with egg and 🥑 and one with yogurt, almond butter, 🍌, and OF COURSE michele’s granola!
Today I woke up at 5:50. I’ve completed day one of my workout, did the dishes, finished almost 3 loads of laundry, I’ve taken my vitamins, had my bullet proof coffee, fed both kids and I feel like I can take on the world. Post workout snack: banana with @traderjoes mixed nut butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon 💕 Happy Monday!
One request I got was to do a post on how to order healthy when you go out to eat at a restaurant. I used to get a little scared but now I realized restaurants will always accommodate you, you just gotta ask!! So since I was in Hamburg this past weekend for a tournament on Saturday night my family and I were driving home and stopped at @thewarehouserestaurant which is a typical American bar food place. If you swipe you’ll see the menu and then what I got. So if you’re looking to eat healthier at a restaurant, the first thing I always look for is something with veggies or greens because let’s face it, veggies should fill up half or more than half of your plate. Restaurants are always bound to have some sort of salad so I got the House Salad. My next tip is you need some sort of protein to fill ya up... even though on the menu it doesn’t say “add chicken” or etc all I did was ask for grilled chicken breast! The last thing I always do is ask for the salad dressing on the side because sometimes restaurant dressings could be filled with a whole bunch of sodium/sugar/canola oil. However I don’t eat my salads dry, I just prefer to dunk each bite in the dressing so it’s not drenched in the dressing!:) You should never stress about having to eat out somewhere because it’s also a night to treat yourself since you don’t have to make your own meal🙌🏼🤤🥗 #abbleseats
¡A comer! 🤸🏻♀️
Y es que con este calor estaría el día entero comiendo fruta así que me he decidido por un poco de pollo y piña 🤤
Muy contenta con el entreno de hoy y muy motivada también para seguir e ir a por esos 10K, un objetivo de seis semanas más, con 3 entrenos semanales 🏃🏼♀️
Me preguntáis mucho que app utilizo y cómo empecé. ¿Queréis que lo deje en una sección destacada y así lo tenéis a mano? 💙💛💚
Gracias por tanto amor y cariño, ¡no imagináis lo arropada que me siento con todos vuestros comentarios y mensajes! Sois puro amor y cariño 🙏🏻
I know this is a super cliche quote, but humor me. So in my weight loss journey, I started off trying to lose weight on my own, and now after joining @weightwatchers and having success on that last year, I feel like I’m in a bit of a rut. Though I absolutely LOVE #weightwatchers one of the things that isn’t my favorite is that sometimes overly processed foods are given low #smartpoints and other foods that may be good for you and are simple and natural are higher in points because they are, say, full fat or have naturally occurring sugars. For example, Kind bars, RX Bars and Lara Bars, which are made from all natural ingredients are often 7-9 #points while Quest Bars are usually only 4. So even though they’re less healthy and wwaaayyy more processed I usually buy the Quest Bars to save points. Thinking about this “glitch” in weight watchers, I’m gonna try a thing. Since now there are so many #zeropointfoods that I love, I am going to try and eat largely from them. But, when I want something as an extra, or to add flavor or value or savoriness-I’m gonna go for all natural over lower in points. Because full fat cheese is MUCH more satisfying than reduced fat or fat free; olive oil or yes, even (gasp!) REAL butter in moderation can add satiety and certain healthy fats whereas a spray cannot. And even though Halo Top is pretty legit, Breyers all natural ice cream-probably worth the splurge. I also think I am at the point in my journey where I need to start appreciating portion control and eat less of the real foods instead of overdoing it on something just because it is “low” in points. So here I go!!! #ww#weightwatchers#weightlossjourney#eatrealfood#fullfat#foodisfuel#foodisnottheenemy#eatclean
Everyday, #intuitiveeating gets a little easier. I’ve learned to stop ignoring what my body is asking for. I’ve learned to no longer feel ashamed of hunger. I’ve learned it’s ok to not finish a meal, and it is equally ok to ask for another helping.
I still sometimes struggle with numbers. I try to avoid reading labels or focus on how many calories may or may not be in something. There will be times #foodfreedom comes naturally, and other days I feel like an insecure mess. I embrace any weight gain (or loss). I’m more at peace with my body.
Most importantly, I’ve removed my diet mentality and stigma. I’ve stopped micro-managing my meals. Not everyday is easy, nor do I know what I want to eat everyday...But it’s getting easier.
Intuitive eating is helping me become a better eater and person. If you’re in the middle of this journey, hang in there. It will get easier. You can do this.
It might look a bit thrown together but WOW, it was delish 😍 My first meal of the day is tandoori style king prawns, veggies + a bag of basmati rice. This will be followed by a homemade protein bar (recipe to follow) & some coconut yoghurt 😍🙌. I wasn't hungry this morning after a very indulgent weekend & I love to fast at least 2 times a week to give my digestive system a break. I always feel great after it. It also means you can have a massive bowl of food to make up for your morning calories 🙌. I stuck to water & a giant mug black coffee this morning to get me going 🤣 #Happymonday
I can't believe it took me 37 years to discover muesli (or "overnight cereal"). Given the hot summer weather in NYC, this is the perfect breakfast. Comes out of the fridge cold, is full of nutritional goodness to start off my day with a plant-powered energy boost, and is so easy to prepare.
For those of us who like to sleep til the last minute and then rush out the door (sacrificing a proper breakfast in the process), this is the perfect way to eat a delicious and super-healthy breakfast because 95% of the prep is done the night before.
I take a half cup of @Bobsredmill Muesli (whole grains, dried fruit, nuts, seeds), add 1 cup of yogurt (in my case cashew-gurt by @ForagerProject), add some raisins, cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed, and half a cup of crushed walnuts. I mix well, close the lid and put the container in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, I add some fresh berries and a dash of honey.
MONDAY has arrived... and I am excited to start a new week! I gave myself extra sleep as usual for Monday & the temps have FINALLY cooled a bit so I was able to bake yesterday 😍 I made a STRAWBERRY BLUEBERRY oatmeal bake and I cant stop eating it. I even eat the leftovers cold in a bowl with almond milk 👌 you guys wanted the recipe here it is👇
3 C of rolled oats
1 tsp of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2 tsp of baking powder
1 C of coconut or almond milk
1 tsp of Vanilla extract or liquid stevia
1/4 C of coconut oil
1 handful of blueberries (fresh or frozen works)
1/3 C of chopped 🍓
1 over ripe smashed banana (or sweetness and texture)
Mix ingredients well, banana can be a little chunky if you like. Pour into a small greased skillet bake at 350 for 20 to 30 minutes. This bake may take a little longer with all the fruit so keep an eye on it. #sailorbailey#bakerbailey 👩🍳
There’s nothing better than PB&J. Except when you put it on top of sizzling blueberry plant-based waffles! 😍🙌🏼🥜Grab the recipe for this added sugar free chia jelly belllow 👌🏼Happy Monday guys!!❤️❤️❤️ #itspeanutbutterjellytime .
@sunnystreetsnacks plant-based blueberry waffles topped with crunchy organic PB, homemade chia blueberry jelly (in a pot, bring 1/4 cup water + ½ cup blueberries (fresh of frozen), 2 tablespoon chia seeds to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Once thick, you may mash with a fork or transfer to a vitamix and blend until smooth. Drizzle on waffles and store the rest in the fridge for up to a week.
R3D2M1 Easy, yummy, and filling #whole30 breakfast this morning! Leftovers, eggs, and some fruit! Later today maybe I’ll do a post of some whole30 staple products that make life a little easier for me! I am such a sauce person, so I can share some of my favorites and hope it helps someone doing a whole30 or thinking about doing one 😊
Monday Mornings come so quick! I’m starting the day off with a yummy yogurt bowl!
I’ve got @siggisdairy topped with organic raspberries and blackberries. @perfectbar and some @barneybutter crunchy almond butter
Tasty tofu takes a lot of love and patience! Thankfully, we’ve got plenty of both. To make our crispy tofu cubes, we press all of the water out of these lil guys, marinate them in a ginger-miso sauce for 8+ hours, and eventually bake them to the beautifully browned state you'll find them in at our counter. Practice makes perfect 👌 What’s your favorite way to cook tofu?
Trust me, you’re going to want to save this chickpea curry recipe! It is comfort food to the max. Perfect on a stormy night with a glass of wine, I might add. The sauce is so good that even my 2 year old decently-adventurous-but-still-has-to-be-coaxed-to-eat-vegetables-eater asked for seconds and thirds of the red peppers, carrots and snow peas. Detailed instructions below! Let me know if you make this by tagging #wellbellies !
1/2 red onion, minced
1 red pepper sliced into thin strips
1 large carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup snow peas, cut in half crosswise
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 15 oz can chickpeas
2 15 oz cans coconut milk (I used light)
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 tsp salt (might need a little more)
1 tsp yellow curry powder
2-3 Tbsp red curry paste
1 Tbsp arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)
Directions: heat avocado oil in a soup pot or a large, DEEP skillet. Add red onion, red pepper, carrot, snow peas and sauté for 6 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another 1 minute.
Add chickpeas, coconut milk, lime juice, yellow curry powder, salt and red curry paste, stir to combine. This will be very soupy right now but don’t worry! Bring to a boil then lower the heat. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, make a batch of jasmine rice according to package directions.
At the end of the 15 minute curry cooking time, mix arrowroot powder with a small amount of cold water (just enough to dissolve it). Add the solution to the curry and stir to combine. It will start to thicken your curry pretty quickly. Simmer for another 1-2 minutes. Take off the heat and stir in the cilantro.
Layer jasmine rice in your bowl and spoon the curry over it. Top with additional cilantro if desired.
Currently flying back home after a weekend spent in Colorado visiting @emily.anne.swanson, so here’s a pic of some pizza I had while I was there. Love love love how having this Instagram page has allowed me to connect and make friends with people all over the country
I’ve been asked how I can afford to travel as often as I do and eat healthy as a college student and while I am blessed to have a good job and minimal living expenses, there are definitely things I do to help me save money. I will list these below but please reach out if you have any questions about budgeting while in school. Feel free to share your own tips too!
(1. Pack plenty of snacks for road trips and flights. This prevents you from having to buy over priced (and often processed) foods from airport markets/convenient stores. (2. Don’t eat out every single meal. Obviously you will want to eat out some (especially if you are on a trip focused mainly on trying new foods like me) but I like to limit myself to eating out only once or twice per day (maybe less if the vacation is longer). I like to visit a grocery store when I first arrive and pick up things that I can make meals with throughout the trip.
(3. Plan your trip in advance and keep an eye on both airline/housing prices and book when the prices are low! Airbnb is definitely my favorite for booking a place to stay.
Those are just kind of some that I could think of of the top of my head, but I hope to share more in the future about finances and budgeting while in college. Happy Monday everybody!
Super yummy dinner last night!!! Veggies galore!!! After volunteering at @feeditforwardtoronto farm yesterday we harvested lettuce and parsley then dropped it off to the Feed It Forward PWYC grocery store and bakery in @toronto and while there I left a donation and picked up some more organic veggies (yellow+green beans, mushrooms, peppers, heirloom tomatoes, zucchini) donated by various local stores who are helping to prevent food from ending up in landfills. @chefjaggergordon created this program and the store to help those in need and thousands of people get to eat nutritious food while the food insecurity issue in Toronto is reducing and his example is being followed by many in their homes and their own food based establishments. If you are in Toronto or visiting, come by the store and Pay What You Can for some amazing veggies and other wonderful edible surprises, volunteer, donate, share!!! .

Turmeric - Fresh root or Powdered form, which is better?
I’ve heard so much buzz about the benefits of #turmeric ….. But I still had unanswered questions.
Here is the breakdown:
1️⃣ Recent studies have identified that the active ingredient responsible for the anti-inflammatory benefits is curcumin
2️⃣Fresh and raw turmeric root is best to get the most benefit and absorption of curcumin
3️⃣When cooked up to 50% of the beneficial properties are lost
Without getting hung up on all the details, we know it’s #antioxidants and #antiinflammatory benefits make it an affordable option in the prevention of #chronicillness So if you can find the root, great, if not, the powdered form will still provide benefit above our every day pro-inflammatory consumption!
