Ever tried garlic scapes?? .
Well they’re all over @unsqgreenmarket and they’re amazing! I like of shave them into strips and add them to dishes, or make a pesto with them! It’s always fun to find cool, experimental, farm grown vegetables to create with. Get some @unsqgreenmarket before they go!
Prepping to make some juice! 😋
The whole reason I’m making our own juice is so I know there are no bad ingredients snuck in! 🙅🏻♀️ But if I’m not washing the pesticides off, I’m letting all the bad stuff in still. I buy 100% Organic Produce but i still always clean my fruit + veggies! 🙌
The Dirty Dozen is a list of the fruits and vegetables that were found to have the highest concentrations of pesticide residues still on them, and EWG notes that across the thousands of samples tested, some still tested positive for pesticides after they were washed and even peeled. Some produce like strawberries, apples, and peaches, had pesticide residue on up to 98% of the samples tested.
That means even the cleanest types of fruits and vegetables still contained some types of pesticides. And that's why washing ALL produce is important.
Thanks to @younglivingeo Cleaning my produce is as easy as mist + rinse! 🙌
Do you clean your produce? • • •
Question: how do you and your SO come up with dinner plans?
For Mr. CN and myself this is how it usually goes:
It’s 5pm, I text from the 🚊
💬”Sweet and spicy chicken and bok choy?” (Because this is what I already have at home and I was eyeing a new recipe)
💬”Eh not a fan of sweet and spicy”
💬”Miso and soy?”
💬”Nah. How about those ingredients but over my fave peanut soba noodles?”
💬 “Ok, sure 😘”
Sometimes a tried and true recipe just does the trick! Weeknights aren’t always the best to play “chef” and throw new flavors into the mix after a long day at work. That’s why I always recommend to have stocked cabinets to easily pull off your favorite healthy meals with little extra planning or purchasing ✌️
Happy Hump Day to you and yours!
Current favorite breakfast:
Sweet potato 🍠
Over easy egg 🍳
@sietefoods Cassava tortilla
Chipotle ranch sauce 🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤 Can you say COME TO MAMA?!? Leftovers for breakfast can be a blessing on busy mornings! Because you already have all the food made and you just have to heat it up and cook an egg. Simple AF!
Seriously just throw an egg with it and see how it goes! Who said you have to follow breakfast rules? Break them! I dare you 💕 Even try breakfast for dinner! 😳

Hey there, I see you. Maybe quiet, maybe loud. Maybe soft, maybe bold - but living in fear all the same. Afraid of judgement. Afraid of ridicule. Afraid of shame.
Maybe you think no one notices, but I see you. I feel you. I see you crave for what if and when.
I see you because I am in so many ways you. Want wistfully to be better as if weight and size determined my worth. Those creeping thoughts of, if I’m skinnier, I’ll be prettier and more loved - so I’ll hide until them breaking my back to make it perfect.
I see you skip the cheese plate and blush when someone double checks if you are sure you’re not hungry and you’re starving. Starving for self-love, starving for nourishment, starving for what you think will be a better life if only you could pull it all together. I feel your heart want, but have too much fear of your supposed lack of self control.
I feel it because I am it. I know it. I’ve done it. I see you because I KNOW THERE IS SO MUCH BETTER FOR YOU. I promise there is another way. You don’t have to hide until another day when your pants are smaller.
The key to self-love is loving yourself now. Here, now, big or small. Loving your whole self, your whole heart, your whole mind and all of it’s perfect imperfections. The key to understanding that you don’t have to hate yourself into change is allowing yourself joy and pleasure. Joy and pleasure in food, in your appearance, in your heart.
You don’t deserve to sit in the corner away from the party. You’re amazing just as you are. I accept you today, tomorrow and yesterday, and I invite the real you to explore this life with this heart, and in this body.
I feel your suffering because I know something similar. I did it to myself thinking I deserved it, but I can tell you - it didn’t make me a better person. It made me a sad and obsessed person. I don’t want that for you. Enjoy the little things, truly enjoy them, and relax into this heart and then the choices don’t feel like weights to keep you in the past. love yourself first, love.

Let me tell you about the pizza I made last night...
🍕Healthy + all-natural ingredients 🌱
🍕Quick + easy to make, perfect for weeknight dinners ⏱
🍕Fiancé approved! ✅😛
I made this margherita pizza with prosciutto using @califlourfoods original Italian pizza crust. Their crusts taste amazing, the first ingredient is actually cauliflower! I got the rest of my ingredients from @traderjoes 👉 no-salt added pizza sauce, sliced prosciutto, pre-sliced mozzarella, and fresh basil from my new plant 😍
Which meal will help you lose weight? What about gain weight? -
Most people would look and say the high calorie meal with cause you to gain weight and the low calorie meal will help you lose weight... but that makes assumptions about a person's diet, sleep habits, genetics and more.
You can eat a few large meals a day and loose weight. You can also loose weight by eating multiple small meals. The same goes with gaining weight. -
The important part to managing your weight is understanding quality of food. When your body is satisfied with proper nutrients it (typically) doesn't crave additional food. Natually you tend to eat what you need.

Baguettes and cheese? 🧀(Ahem, and wine?) 🍷 Food from a street vendor? Eats from the local farmers’ markets? What is your must-have food (or drink) when traveling abroad? I’m currently spoiling myself in LUX with smoked salmon, tapas, cremant, steak, shrimp, lait russe…so hard to pick a favorite! I’d love to hear yours! 👇
It’s hot as a tater tot (yummm, tater tots 😋) her in Vancouver, so there’s been a lot more BBQ-ing going on! ⠀⠀
Pro tip: toss down a BBQ mat (or tin foil) on the grill and use it for basically anything.
Pro tip x ✌️: watch how charred it gets. Sad news - burned might taste good, but it’s not good for your long term health.
A lot of people food prep on Sunday, only to have food start running out by mid week. Here’s an idea to help you get in that Protein for the next few days. I found this on @mealpreponfleek who has a lot of good meal prep ideas! 🍽

Happy Wednesday... Is it just me or this week flying by?! 🙃. BBY bicep pump but all I did was bike + core 🤷🏼♀️ tomorrow I've got another 5k race and I'm hopinggg to get each mile under 7mins 👌🏻
These races have pushed me to train extra hard the past few months. BUT after this one I'm looking forward to taking a few days off of the gym and vigorous exercise to get my body recover, rest and hopefully sleep past 7 for once🙄. I find myself needing an extended break every few months. After it, I come back feeling stronger and also reminded why I'm so passionate about an active lifestyle 😌
I'm always on the go whether it's school, gym, work. And I'm hella beat. My summer vacation officially starts next Thursday and boy do I need it😅😴
One of the classes we’ll have at Parker Place is Nutrition Basics. In this class, you will learn all you need to know about eating the foods that treat your body right. Age-appropriate lessons will teach kids what it means to eat “real food”, how to incorporate fruits and vegetables into their daily meals and snacks, why we should limit added sugars, and tools to help everyone succeed in eating a balanced, healthy diet. https://www.parkerplaceannapolis.com/health-and-wellness-classes/
OH MY GAWD JOOZ sang to the tune of “oh my god shooz”. There are so many juiceries all over Barcelona especially in @la.boqueria market. Hard to chooz a jooz. We landed at 7am local time aka 1am Boston time and I’m wiped. Nap time! #barcelona#laboqueriamercat#juicefordays
These sandwiches were so damn good... They were supposed to be my lunch as I’ve been intermittent fasting this month, but they started calling me as soon as I sat at my desk! First one didn’t make it past 10am, followed about half an hour later by the second! Sometimes simple food is the best 💚

Without a doubt, 10+ years ago, I assumed that the older I’d get, the less fit or in shape I could be (despite the pic on the left where I consumed way too much fast food as well as alcohol, far younger than the pic on the right taken this Fall before realizing I was pregnant)... And though I can still find a million things wrong with the picture on the right, the older I get, the more I realize that age is NOTHING but a number, and there is always time to make a positive, healthy and lasting change! Just wait, because I am due any day now and am ready to rock my #MomOf2 bod better than any other time of my life thus far! Break past all of your excuses, friends, and live the life you deserve, in the healthiest, strongest body that you deserve! 💕💪🏼 #tuesdaytransformation#fuelyourbodyright
👆🏼BANANA BERRY BLAST!!

Quality time with our children is so important. 👫 Quality time + ice cream with our children = priceless. 🍦 We were able to check out Spill the Beans today. Kids approved the ice cream! ✔️ They enjoyed a sweet treat on this super hot day!! And the pic I thought I took of them with their ice cream in this amazingly beautiful building must have been deleted. So here you get to just enjoy the view and imagine the ice cream! 🤣 🤣#hotdays#sweetsummertime#spillthebeans#icecreamtreat#spoiled#gonnaneedtheprobioticnow#sugar
Reflecting on this amazing @wholefoods road trip lunch I had on the way home from vacation.
When I think of road trip foods this isn’t always what I picture! 🙃 Eating well on the road can be challenging.
I linked to my post How to Travel easily with Food Intolerances in my bio! 👆🏻
Do you find yourself binge eating on vacation or can you find food freedom traveling? 🤷🏼♀️

Made a Buddha Bowl of sorts, and let’s just say it will definitely be an addition to the dinner repertoire because it was darn good and hot the spot😋😍🎉
I used @wildwoodfoods teriyaki tofu, quinoa, black beans, @goodvibesurbanfarm pea shoots, and the true star of the show, their CREAMY GARLIC CASHEW sauce. Seriously my new fave😱Had a bowl of it on the side to dip in because I’m definitely a “get some on your fork and then dip it in more sauce” kind of girl💁🏻♀️Happy Tuesday🤘🏼
