This sandwich is sooo delicious and is made with such simple ingredients!! It’s the perfect thing to make when you have a bunch of veggies in the fridge that need to be used up!
• 2 toasted slices of rye bread (one spread with hummus, one spread with mashed 🥑)
• cucumbers + carrots
• rotisserie chicken
• side of celery + hummus
Steak and potatoes has recently been my most favoritest meal. I used to dread eating it as a little kid.
My mom said I would put it in mouth and try to chew it and say “it’s big” and spit it out. 🤣
I guess my little jaw was just too weak.
“My weight is the least interesting thing about me”. At one point in time, my weight controlled how I began each day. Well, I am happy to say I start my day off with massive intentions that make me a better person. A better person both physically and emotionally. Today I am sharing with you how I fuel my body no matter how people view my professional image or dress size. #veggiesandprotein#onesopinionofyouisnonofyourbusiness
See this dinner. QUICK. EASY. DELISH. #mamagoals

It’s a lunch with a serving of veggies and protein! Added a bit of Greek yogurt with ranch flavoring. After a long weekend of not the best eating, it’s time to jump back to eating right! As hubby told me last night, its best we keep our holiday eating under wraps and not allow ourselves to go hog wild! It’s funny how my body lets me know when I have done a little bit of poor eating on my part! My gut health sure lets me know! 😳 #guthealth#veggiesandprotein#eatrightfeelright#vintageplates#lunchbreakshenanigans
I turned down penn station for this salad! Now that I think of food as fuel for my body, I am encouraged to choose healthier choices because I know the proper nutrients will make me feel good! 👉🏼That to me is more important than eating something just for the taste.
After figuring out how to eat healthier, I crave salads and enjoy the taste!
I know it’s nourishing my body and that feels good! 💁🏽♀️Yeah, I have my days where I still eat things that aren’t necessarily good for me. I had pizza 🍕 last night but it’s in moderation now and not every day.
My body thanks me and I can feel it changing. Most of the time now when I eat junk, I don’t feel well afterwards. I get really tired and sluggish and sometimes even a stomach ache. That’s not worth it for me. 🙅🏻♀️
My current accountability group is helping people learn moderation and proper nutritious foods to fuel their body and make them feel great for the holidays! 🎄There is still time for you to get in on this!
#lunch you know you’ve been off the wagon when you haven’t posted in a while. Ok just kidding but there was a lot of meal repetition this week and more fun doing Pilates and new developments @aikhanoumladymoon to worry about meals. Always a good thing. Free morning so here goes - what’s better than soft fluffy scrambled eggs? Absolutely nothing! Add steamed cauli, grilled zucchini with dollops of homemade basil pesto, baked pumpkin w kale and Parmesan and some grilled cherry toms. #fitforaking#1200calories . Admittedly bread is like Caviar and Champagne for me now - and when you have it it better be warm soft toasty and buttered. Not today tho! #vegetarianrecipes#notvegan#veggiesandprotein#veggie#meatlessmonday
I will be the first to admit, I have a major sweet tooth. I have a major weakness for most sweet things, but man, York Peppermint Patties? 🙈😍😬 So hard to resist!
But I'm 3000% sure I've found the cure. I can't have peppermint patties for breakfast, but a peppermint patty shake? YUP. YES PLEASE. SIGN. ME. UP.
So yeah, I drink candy for breakfast. It just so happens to have the nutrients of like 6 salads and a TONNNN of the vitamins, minerals, pre- and probiotics and lots of other good stuff that our bodies can't help but lack, especially when eating to lose weight. And did I mention that since adding this in, my sugar cravings are basically gone? Yup, I'm good with that.
Wanna get your hands on some? Let me know!
Ok guys I got creative today and wanted to share/record the recipe before I forget 😂 tortellini mushroom soup.
Pack of shiitake mushrooms
Box of creamy of mushroom soup
Head of cauliflower
4 cloves garlic
Pack of tortellini
Pack of chicken sausage (garlic and cheese)
Black pepper and garlic powder to taste
1. Steam cauliflower and purée add box of soup and blend again
2.Sautéed garlic mushrooms and pesto, set aside
3. In same skillet cook sausage (remove from casing)
4. Add cooked mushrooms and kale stir and cover for about 5 minutes
5. Add cauliflower/mushroom purée and tortellini to skillet. Season to your liking.
6. Stir and cover cook for 15 minutes and enjoy!
The color is not the best (mushrooms are brown🙄) but the taste is on point. Perfect for the fall and filling. If you try it let me know what you think!
Note: I wouldn’t add salt until your done and taste the sausage and soup have plenty already! Also if you want lower carb leave out tortellini. It’s just as good without it!
Egg Pizza?!? Yep! 😃Pretty good too. Seriously you gotta try this!
Heat pan over low heat and coat with nonstick cooking spray. I scrambled 2 eggs and poured in the pan. Let the eggs set and flipped it.
Topped it with pizza sauce, mushrooms, onion & cheese...continue cooking eggs through and until cheese is melted.
Try your favorite toppings and let me know what you think! You will be surprised at this one😋
Eating healthy can be fun! Let me show you new ways to experience your favorite food flavors...

Breakfast from yesterday!! I made my yogurt more festive for Haloween by added some pumpkin puree 🍁🎃 I also enjoyed some takeout chicken fajitas and wine with my friend last night because.... balance! 😉🌯🍷 Just keeping it real for you guys! 😀💪
What did y'all do for Halloween?!
When in doubt egg whites are what it’s all about! Feeling like you’ll have no time to cook and eat on plan? These egg white baked are the easiest best way to stay on plan, have a great meal and did I mention it’s so easy! You can add whatever you want to it. Meat, cheese, veggies, salsa, beans, the options are endless! Cut it up portion it into a container or heck a zip loc bag if it’s really one of THOSE weeks and call it good. Grab it heat it up add whatever to it if you want to add more stuff after you cook it. Throw it on a breakfast sandwich, eat it alone, seriously I could go on how easy and filling this is! So go make one and for a week that’s just going to be craZy!!! #eggbake#eggs#eggwhite#veggies#veggiesandprotein#yum#breakfast#fastmealsonplan#stayonplan#countingcals#calories
Favorite product alert! After traveling for the past four days, it’s never fun to come home to an empty fridge. But, with Primal Palate seasoning in full stock, I don’t have to worry much about what I’m going to cook for the week! I just roast a ton of veggies, make a huge stir fry and cook some protein and I seasoned everything today with these spices! Non-GMO, organic, full of only the good stuff. These three are my favorite flavors, and the most versatile in my opinion!
Fried egg whites,Cauliflower rice and veggies 😋 First time I do this! I didn’t use a recipe and threw a few Thai seasoning I had 🤪, it was pretty good!
I only used 3 #egg whites , #cauliflower#rice , 3 chopped broccoli florets, a few carrots slices and about 6 baby #peppers .
Cooked in coconut oil and added some #Thai#curry sauce, onion powder and a little amino acids at the end.
I had a vision earlier this week of a healthier, more plant-based version of a charcuterie board, and today my vision came to life. I wanted to share in case you want to use this idea for any group meals or parties you throw in the future! Curry roasted cauliflower and brussels sprouts, roasted sweet potatoes, balsamic mushrooms, cucumber matchsticks, oven roasted turkey breast and roasted red pepper hummus. YES!
Funny that this post came up in my flashbacks today!
Rebekah's ridiculously easy butternut soup
1 medium butternut squash
1 yellow onion
1 inch fresh ginger
1 carton no sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
Put your squash on a baking dish and roast at 400 degrees till you can press the flesh with an oven gloved hand (up to an hour). Let cool till you can touch it.
Or buy a frozen bag of cut up butternut squash and save yourself some time! This can literally be a 10 minute supper.
In a soup pot pour oil and add chopped onion. Once it's translucent add your peeled chopped ginger.
Cut your squash in half and scoop out seeds. Scoop flesh out and into pot with onions and ginger. Add broth. Cook about 10 minutes.
Blend with immersion blender or in your regular blender till very smooth. It will be pretty thick but you can thin with more broth or water if you prefer it thinner.
Serve with a scoop of ricotta cheese or Greek yogurt and pumpkin seeds for garnish.
So fast and easy! Enjoy!

Today I made a feast! My meals are usually less elaborate, but honestly this was a pretty simple meal to make. .
Cranberry balsamic chicken - simple marinade, then basically just throw in the oven. Really good and smelled like Thanksgiving.
Maple glazed carrots, made in the instant pot. Like 15 minutes from start to finish, and soooo good. I make them all the time. I tell my toddler it’s candy carrots. Cuz it basically is.
Artichokes. These take a while to cook, but don’t require much work. I dip the leaves in melted butter , olive oil, and garlic.
I will definitely be making these again!
