The Sunday reset.. because after a long weekend of fun + birthday cake this is exactly what I need 🌱 ✨
✨💛 #wellnesslife ~ Love that my July @sakaralife 10 Day Reset has truly changed the way I cook, live (& eat ;)
My goal this week is to eat what I actually put in the menu and prepped! The past few weeks I’ve meal planned and prepped, but when I didn’t feel like that I just ate something else...🍕🍿🍦 This week I’m sticking with my green smoothie for breakfast and these delicious sweet spinach muffins. They are light, sweet, and guilt free!
I made these with my nieces and nephews a few weeks ago and they ate all 12 muffins in one sitting after eating lunch! So, it’s safe to say they are kid approved...as you can clearly see by Millie’s face. 💗😂 #tiuteam#tiucheckin#eatyourgreens
I didn't always eat like this. When you feed a family, you look for inexpensive meals that can be made quickly. That usually meant boxed rice and pasta mixes. And even though I worked out, I wasn't seeing much progress. It was when I started getting serious about what I was feeding myself and my family that progress began happening. What we put into our bodies shows on the outside. More than that, it has serious effects on our mood and energy levels. It's the difference between putting regular unleaded and high octane fuel into a sports car. Which fuel is going to hurt and which is going to help?
Pork chop seasoned with salt and pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and oregano, sauteed potatoes and onions, and spinach with honey mustard dressing.

Can’t. Stop. Pickling. Okay mostly because I don’t wanna waste anything. Any of the veggies we get from the @garmanfarm CSA that we don’t know exactly what were gonna do with, Ive been sticking in a jar with vinegar, sugar, spices, and water 😆
I resisted starting AIP because it seemed overwhelming. I avoided reintroducing foods because I was afraid of having a reaction. Fear ruled my actions, not just with my health, but with my entire life. Over the last couple years I’ve realized that fear and perfectionism have no place in my healing journey (or my life.) .
Finding AIP set me on a path to heal from autoimmune disease. I never expected that through healing my illness, I would also heal my life. I’m more free, more happy, more comfortable in my own skin than I ever was before. Strangely enough, getting sick ended up being the best thing that ever happened to me. .
I hope you really hear me when I say thank you. Each and every one of you is so beautiful and unique. I’m humbled by your encouragement and your kindness to me and to your fellow AIPers. Wherever you are in your journey I’m wishing you all the best! Come find me over on @hapahealth and we’ll continue to heal together! ❤️❤️❤️
“THAI PESTO NOODLES with a spring veg salad 🌿 we've got this on repeat at our house! So fresh and sooo good, especially with @LotusFoods Organic Jade Pearl Noodles. Made from rice instead of wheat so they are naturally gluten free too! 🙌🏻 Check out the recipe below 👇🏻

Lots of different rabbit trails we could run down talking about greens. But I’ll keep it to just one.
High protein diets, high fat diets, or just a big nasty cheat meal, can all cause a lot of digestive issues. I’m not as picky as some people *cough* @s2_irishgorilla *cough* but I don’t like greens. MAYBE 1 meal a day I’ll eat some. But I take these daily, and an extra serving if I have a cheat meal. Less bloat, gas, indigestion and a plethora of other benefits.
Sautéed up some Bok Choy for dinner tonight. Used a little sesame oil, chopped up some garlic and fresh ginger root. Benefits of eating Bok Choy ☑️Improves bone strength ☑️Boosts circulation ☑️Helps your body heal faster ☑️ Prevents chronic disease ☑️Booths immune system ☑️Improves skin health ☑️Lowers blood pressure.....just to name a few. #foodismedicine#eatyourgreens#eatyourveggies

Today with my beloved friend,
I went wandering
through rows upon rows
of incredible herbs & flowers,
surrounded by busy honeybees & butterflies
and truly appreciating not only the beauty,
but the awe inspiring medicinal powers of botanicals.
There was lavender, lemon balm, echinacea, anise, dill, parsley, oregano, sage, calendula, St. John's wort, marjoram, and on and on...
I have some herbs hung to dry to later use in tea & a stunning floral arrangement of mixed flowers that are filling the house with fresh fragrance!
I highly suggest that you make the trip to @lochlandbotanicals next weekend,
bring $5, enjoy some delicious herbal lemonade, tour the gardens & pick herbs & flowers until your heart is content!

~ Winter blues and spring greens ~
A lot of folks are feeling blue this end of winter, however this is when spring babies like myself come to life.
Insert some bulk greenery into your diet to boost yourself back into life.
Roast off some brussel sprouts and broccoli with a few kalamata olives, toss them with a handful each of fresh baby spinach leaves, fresh coriander, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and drizzle with a dressing made from seeded mustard, lemon juice salt and olive oil. .
Steak salad... marinated a london broil all day, cooked it up in a flash on my trusty cast iron pan - served with some roasted broccoli, blue cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Perfect meal for a hot summer day! #healthyfood#quickdinner#summermeals#steaksalad
• Such a good food day today (you can tell by my food coma; I’ve been laying in bed all evening). 🍄
👉🏼I can sincerely recommend Lentils, a place of giving. Everyone contribute with what they’ve got. Volunteers are working there. You enjoy home cooked vegan food by donating. Such a good thing ✨
🇺🇸Another day, another bowl 😍
That makes me so happy to create bowls 🤗
Seriously colors makes everything better, just when you look at something which look tasty makes you want to eat it even more 🤗
