💥 Lunch! I don’t remember the last time I went to @redrobinburgers, but I’m glad they offer bottomless salads (or broccoli) as an option now. 👌🏽
🍔🥗 Royal Red Robin burger, no bun, double bacon, add avocado, and a Caesar salad (also had another Caesar salad after this since it was bottomless). 😋
I hope you enjoy Peanut Butter!
Peanut Butter @kodiakcakes mix is the base for this delicious treat mixed with in Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios.
Then put 30g Peanut Butter to cover the waffle.
After that put on your Coolwhip, Reeses pieces and last bit of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios.
here’s another fajita recipe because I bought too many peppers and I didn’t know what else to make 🤷♀️
I switched it up from my last post and made it with pasta, topped with some nooch and I also added cauliflower because I had to eat it up but, it was a good addition 👌
Breakfast! Did I mention I've found I feel much better on 3 big meals a day rather than 5 or 6 small ones, but my schedule doesnt allow really it? There isn't really any benefit to eating that way unless it's just what works for you. 😊 Breakfast the past 3 days has been French toast, 2 slices of sourdough, 2 eggs, honey & strawberries. If only I had time to have this this morning maybe I wouldn't be hating on my neighbour's so severely for keeping me awake until 4.35am... seriously plotting their deaths lol #joking#noimnot 😴😴😴 today I'm challenging myself to not overeat despite the 1 hour of sleep! I hope everyone else is feeling well rested and not on their 1 millionth day of work like I am 😝
let’s 🌮 bout tacos!! one of my favorite meals to make because the possibilities are endless - chicken, steak, veggies, fish etc. these shredded salsa verde chicken tacos are a must try 😋 full recipe below! hope everyone’s having a great weekend + happy Saturday 🙃
what’s in it: 1 rotisserie chicken (picked mine up @wholefoods) • 1/2 large yellow onion • @goyafoods adobo seasoning (optional) • olive oil • salsa verde
how to make:
1 - remove skin from chicken, shred meat from breast and legs using hands or fork
2 - chop onion + cook in olive oil until golden
3 - add shredded chicken, seasoning with salt, pepper and Goya adobo
4 - once chicken is slightly golden/crispy, pour in about 1 cup salsa verde (I used @herdeztraditions original) and let simmer
5 - serve on your favorite tortilla with veggies, guac, beans for the perfect taco 🌮
🌸 I’ve been hearing a lot about this #ketopinkdrink , and I have to admit it was kind of a let down. Perhaps the barista added a bit too much cream, but it wasn’t too bad. 🤷🏽♂️ I’m gonna stick to my cold brew though, and I’ll give this to @taingtaing. 😂
🌸 Passion tango iced tea, no water, add heavy cream, and sugar free vanilla instead of liquid cane sugar. 👍🏽
Definitely on a spicy garlic cajun shrimp kick this summer 🙋🏼♀️🍤. Made more tonight, and paired them with cast iron-grilled parmesan broccolini and garlic-sage fettuccine for my post-gym din 🌶💃.
#whatsonmyplate : spicy garlic shrimp (season shrimp with @primalpalate cajun seasoning + paprika, then sauté in garlic ghee until pink and slightly brown) •• @cappellos almond flour fettuccine tossed with olive oil, basil, sage, garlic, and parmesan •• cast-iron grilled broccolini topped with red pepper flakes and parm 🥦.
Happy Saturday! I had a productive day cleaning just about everything in my apartment, and now I’m exhausted and ready for bed at 7pm 😂👵🏻 But instead of calling it a night, I’m heading out to a 90s dance party 💃 Here’s hoping n*sync and the spice girls add some pep back to my step! ✌🏻
The answer is yes! However some takeout menus are harder to navigate than others. Here’s my quick tip list you can follow based off of each cuisine. ⬇️
Asian 🍣 🍱🥡🍜: choose clear broth soups, get sauces on the side, swap white/fried rice to brown rice, & order foods steamed instead of fried. -
Italian 🍝🍕🥖: try to skip the bread! limit pasta to a fist size portion and order lean protein like fish or chicken. If you get pizza, blot the cheese oils with a napkin and try not to eat more than 2 slices! -
American 🍔🌭🍟🥩: swap the French fries for a baked potato, skip the cheese on your burger, if choosing beef get a lean cut like sirloin or strip steak. -
Mexican 🌮🌯: try your absolute hardest not to over do it on the chips & guac 🥑 (the struggle is real...I know 😅). Tacos are a good option because they’re portioned. Fajitas work well too if you can choose between having the rice OR the tortilla for your starch. -
With all cuisines make sure vegetables are present! 🥗🥦🥒. If the option doesn’t come with vegetables order them on the side & choose to eat them first to prevent overeating ❣️
For more details on how to choose healthy take-out send me a message & I will add you to my free healthy lifestyle support group on Facebook so you can watch my live video on this topic. 🤗
RELAX ✌️. Need help relaxing?
Hormones involved with relaxation include:
✔️GABA calms our nervous system, having anti-anxiety effects.
✔️Progesterone is calming and soothing. ✔️Oxytocin is our love hormone, it helps us feel loved and safe.
✔️Low cortisol allows you to sleep so you are not wired or hyper vigilant.
✔️Get tested first and find out why your hormones are causing you problems. Address the root cause.
✔️Do more feel good things! Get some fresh air, walk barefoot, meditate, read, yoga, hug more, dance and do some gardening.
Are there any supplements to help? Yes 😊
✔️Magnesium, B vitamins, Vitamin C, L-theanine, GABA, 5 HTP, lavender and more! But don’t self-diagnose.
When your diagnosed with Celiac disease it can be so overwhelming not knowing what to eat, thinking you have to kiss goodbye to all your favorite foods and that your future is filled with boring meals. Well let me tell you things have come a long way in a short period of time! We went out for ice cream this afternoon and I was able to enjoy a delicious ice cream bowl while my hubby enjoyed his on a cone. And tbh... who needs cones anyways right?! Let's just say one of us didn't have sticky hands afterwards 😉😂

Eat the rainbowww🌈
We often hear this saying of eating the rainbow or even your 5 a day but why should we do this if we don't even know how it benefits us? Eating the rainbow basically ensures we all get enough DIFFERENT varieties of fruits and vegetables in our diets each day. Consuming different coloured whole foods ensures we're getting adequate amounts of vitamins, minerals, fibre and nutrients. Eating like this will help to protect us against many chronic diseases and ailments thrown at us such as the common cold!
Here I have broccoli, roasted sweet potato with cinnamon, roast yellow pepper and roasted chickpeas in chilli🔥 As a light dinner for me this still gives me plenty of nutrients to help protect me common into the colder months❄️
I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a mini-cut and tomorrow I’m going to do it! Maintenance macros have been great this summer and given me the freedom to really enjoy myself without feeling restricted. I haven’t gained any weight over the past few weeks (which is the point of maintenance 😉) but it’s time to lean out a little more and let those muscle gains show!
Now onto those last maintenance meals ⤵️

Healthy pizza on a macro budget! .
Allowing yourself to eat foods within your macros and not restricting your options is very beneficial and avoids cravings/ restrictions!
Make a pizza with a great base either @lodough.co Or @missionwrapsuk_ topped with tomato sauce and @eatlean cheese 🍕😋
A smarter way to "fast food" 🍔🚫 🥒✅
Sometimes life gets busy and you don't have the time to pack yourself a lunch or dinner for the day. This happens to me all the time 😭 although it's best to be prepared and pack your own healthy snacks to skip the temptation of McDonalds, consider this #fittip 🤔
Most grocery stores make pre-made snacks or meals that you can buy and eat to go. It is almost as fast (and sometimes even faster) than waiting in the drive through for your chicken strip meal 🍟 I stopped at a local grocery store to buy this yesterday when I didn't have time to bring a lunch for work, and it's actually lasted me for two breaks 😊 it's a healthier option than fast food, and was cheaper too 😉
