You can just ignore that asparagus on my plate... and now that we’re talking #lowfodmap , #bacon cheddar burger night with sweet potato fries is where it’s at! My go-to #paleo#glutenfree#grainfree bun preference is celeriac. I love the flavor and mouth feel for #burgers . 😋
This is a highly recommended recipe from our nutritionist, Monica Paz, for those of you avoiding gluten and dairy and wanting a high protein treat in the morning. Serve it with a nut butter and it will provide sustained energy all morning long! .

Day 1 take 2🎬. I was afraid to post this and admit to you all that I failed the first round. I fell off the wagon. Plain and simple. I have been super busy the last couple of days and ended up forgetting to do my challenge each day. So here I am again starting over with day 1. You fall down and you get back up again. Don't let anything keep you down. Keep fighting for yourself.
I also ended up going walking with my family. I love living in the country. Walking is so much more relaxing out here in farm land.
Healthy fats + plant-based carbs, two of my favorite things 🤩 Well maybe second only to a sweaty yoga class and a healthy morning 💩 Those who know me, know that I’m 100% serious here. I’ll be talkin’ all about both (the fats & carbs 😆) in an IG Live at 8 pm EST tomorrow, 10.18! I’m doing a mini-lesson from the module “Become a Fat-Burner” in Transition to Paleo — all about how/why to change your eating approach to better burn fat and feel better in your body. I’ll also be answering any and all questions you may have about the program. Leave ‘em here👇🏼& I’ll see you in the Live!
We love visitors, especially ones that have been lovers of our place since day one.
Thanks for visiting us from the little land, New Zealand 🇳🇿. @simple_life_project ・・・
[ Breakfast ]
A work trip to karratha wouldn’t be complete without swinging into our friends @empire6714 and checking out the new menu 🍴 I had the One Green Day and it was freaking YUM, so much veggie goodness topped with a perfectly poached egg and delicious dressing.
Nice work team 🙌🏼 continuing to create happy hearts and healthy bodies Karratha wide 😘
We LOVE tacos and have them once a week. @sietefoods has made tacos work for my paleo diet with all of their grain free and dairy free products. They are so so good!!! Now all they need to make is paleo margaritas! #21days2gratitude#grainfree#sietefoods
What a surprise, I'm still dreaming of breakfast mid week. I'm also too swamped with studying for the LSAT to do more than reheat old leftovers 🙃🙃
• GF traditional sourdough toast from @originbakery • Crispy medium-fried eggies
• Spinach and tomatoes sauteed in garlic oil
• Roasted Japanese purple yam
This was the staple for me. Gladly.
Had heard but never experienced before this Navratri that
#sabudana is one damn good energy food
Tapioca pearls (from cassava)
Or sago pearls (from sago palm), Both are remarkably same
(°Soak sabudana/tapioca/sago pearls for two hours and then drain it for another two hours. Should be dry!
°Roast peanuts and coarsely grind it and mix with sabudana. Season with rock salt
°Heat ghee, temper with curry leaves, cumin seeds and green chillies
° Add diced, boiled potatoes and saute for a minute
° Then comes the pearls
° Mix well. More of seasoning. Pepper and salt.
° Some coriander leaves. Mix and cover for one minute only ° dash of lemon juice
Add more of crushed redskin peanuts and there you go! )
I did something different today! I made the simplest flourless pb cookies that literally took 10 min to make.😂🙌🏽 I usually spend more time than that measuring the ingredients for macarons, so the quick recipe was much welcomed, with theee yummiest results. 😋 Can’t wait to share more with you all! 🍪🥜🍫
Paleo Chicken & Waffles! 🍗🔥
I was craving some Fried Chicken so decided to do some experimenting! Made a super simple breading of Cassava Flour, Arrowroot Powder, Garlic Powder, Salt, and Pepper. Breaded my Chicken then Fried them up in some Avocado Oil and turned out pretty good! Tossed it in a little Nashville hot type seasoning sauce then served it with some @birchbenders Paleo Waffles and a Kale Slaw that I tossed in a Creamy Sesame Dressing! 😃

This weather lately has me in a soup mood all the time! This is a perfect example of good healthy food that doesn't have to be complicated!
Here's what I did:
Sauteed half an onion and 3 chopped celery stalks with some garlic in the Instant Pot.
Added in 3 sliced carrots and some leftover diced chicken.
Topped with about 3 or so cups of broth. (Should have added more, oh well)
Manual for 5 minutes in the Instant Pot.
So easy, nothing really to it, but we all got a great serving of bone broth and the warm feeling from soup. Also topped mine and the toddler's with about half an avocado each!
- 340g pitted dates (about 15 dates)
- juice of 1 orange
- 1/2 cup water
- zest of half an orange
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 350*F. In a nonstick pan, combine the date mixture ingredients. Cook, stirring frequently over medium-low heat for ~5 minutes, until the dates have softened and the liquid has evaporated. You’ll be left with a creamy smooth mixture. Set aside to cool.
2. In a mixing bowl, add all the crumble ingredients and mix to combine.
3. Line a 9” square baking pan with parchment paper. Add a cup of the crumble mixture to the pan and pat it down until it’s flat and the entire bottom is covered.
4. Add the date mixture and spread it until it’s evenly covering the crumble bottom.
5. Scatter the rest of the crumble on top.
6. Cover the pan with foil and put in the oven. Cook for 12 minutes and then take off the foil. Cook for another 8-10 minutes until the top is golden.
7. Take it out and let it sit until it’s completely cool. Then use the parchment paper to help you lift the bars out of the pan. Slice into squares and enjoy!

You know you are obsessed when you have to stalk the farmers market for their next shipment of radishes..😁. What can I say.. they are so good! We add them in our salads or as toppings for tacos and things.. all the time, but my favorite way to eat them is straight up. And fresh out of the garden when I’m growing them! 🙌🏻🌱
Radishes might be small, but they pack a BIG punch! These cuties are antibacterial, antiviral and full of vitamin C and folate which is helpful in preventing + fighting colds and flus. They can be helpful to rid the body of excess acid or mucous, expel gallstones, cleanse the kidneys and fight off urinary tract infections. ✨ Your gut will thank you too because radishes have tons of living enzymes to help bring better digestion 🙌🏻✨ .
Every single vegetable, fruit and herb has a long list just like this! They protect and heal us... from head to toe. Choose fresh and organic whenever possible and fill your plate! 🍽🍏🥕🍌🍓🥦🍆🍑🍒🥒🍎🥑🍍🍇🍋
Some healthy snackin before dance class 🍎🍓
It’s so important that we teach our little ones how to feed their bodies ALL the good stuff. Grabbing unhealthy snacks might be a bit easier but it’s not giving them energy or protecting every cell in their sweet, young, innocent bodies. 💕 Let’s be real, some days it’s unavoidable.. 😕. Being mindful is a step in the right direction. I spend my days helping others find the tools and time to make healthy changes that will help the whole family. It is my favorite thing to do! 🙏🏻❤️🍎
Saturday = Lattes that last allllll morning ☕️💕🙌🏻
What’s in my cup lately? Chai tea meets golden mylk 😋. A superfood boosted almond chai latte loaded with turmeric, chaga mushrooms, fresh grated ginger and Tangerine Vitality essential oil. I blend it with a couple of dates for sweetness and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top to feel fancy ✨🎉☕️
Yes do ALL the healthy things!! Eat veggies and REAL food, exercise, drink tons of water, eliminate toxins (in the home and body ☝🏻), use OILS, breathe, sleep 8 hours and laugh out loud. A lot! But.......
Our mind is the most powerful tool when it comes to our health! What do your thoughts say about your life, your body and your future? Do you allow fear to hold you back? Is negative talk keeping you stuck? If you want something.. say it and believe it. Think positively about where you are going and what you want to achieve. If you believe it can happen there is a much greater chance that it will!
Sunday is shopping, prepping and batch cooking day in our house! We hit Costco and a farmers market to grab our loot and stocked up on tons of healthy stuff for the week. Part 2 is prepping and cooking up veggies/meals for the week! .
One of my most favorite things about what I do as a coach is teaching about ways to be successful in switching to a healthy lifestyle. Batch cooking is one of those tools that I swear by and helps keep my sweet clients on track and prepared. When that busy schedule hits or hunger gets the best of you, grab the good stuff you rocked out ahead of time! 🙌🏻
Batch cooking time! My house is about to rock out some amazing food 🤘🏻🙌🏻😋
