Happy #ToastTuesday! Doing a little throwback for this one because my actual breakfast was overnight oats shoved messily into a jar and eaten during lecture 😅 not that they tasted bad by any means, but you bet you’ll still find me dreaming about these sweet slices right now 😍🍌🥜 I’m planning to get in a quick workout after class and then I have work later tonight. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind trying to adjust to this new busy schedule but I think I’m managing so far! Have a fantastic day everyone ❤️

protein-packed chocolate chia oatmeal 🍫💕
because hump day needs a little dessert for breakfast action, am I right? 😎
these oats are so simple to make, and the addition of the protein + fats from the protein powder, chia seeds and nut butter keeps me satisfied all morning ❤️
I hope you all have a wonderful wednesday!
chocolate chia #oatmealrecipe:
•cook up 1/3 cup of @bobsredmill#glutenfree rolled oats in the microwave in about 3/4 cup liquid (water or milk)
•note: if I’m not adding protein powder, 2/3 cup liquid will do, but the protein really thickens them up so more water/milk is required!
•once the oats are cooked, I stirred in 2 scoops of @nuzest_usa chocolate protein powder (the code “leanneliveshealthy” will save you money at checkout), about a tsp of chia seeds, and a sprinkle of @simplyorganicfoods cinnamon
•topped with banana slices, warmed up frozen raspberries, @beekeepers_naturals bee pollen, and a spoonful of @maranathanutbutters almond butter!
fresh batch of S’mores Cookie Bars to get me through the week🔥10 simple ingredients, gooey under-baked texture, and slightly addictive if I do say so myself 🤗need I say more? full recipe below👇🏼
1/2 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
1/3 cup soft coconut oil or butter
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp oat flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 bar dark chocolate, chopped
Whisk together the sugar, oil and egg. Fold in the flours, vanilla, salt and baking soda and mix until well combined. Stir in the marshmallow and chocolate. Pour into a parchment lined 9 X 5 or 8 X 8 pan and bake on 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing.
CALORIES are tokens of energy. We NEED calories. But we need them to be full of NUTRIENTS — vitamins and minerals that are in high demand to perform all the vital functions in our bodies!
So next time you consider a certain food evaluate its nutrient content instead of its caloric value.
Shifting attention to nutrients allows us to start seeing every meal as an opportunity to nourish our bodies in the most pleasurable way.
And here’s a little “secret” — most nutrient dense foods (like lean meats and fish, non-starchy vegetables and legumes) are also not very high in calories. There’s a few of those, like avocados and nuts that are higher in calories, but they are satisfying in small quantities so it’s hard to overdo them.
And one more thing, when we start eating this way, we are literally rewiring our brains to get more pleasure from whole food, which also allows us more freedom for having “cheat” meals more often, as long as they come with a nice helping of vegetables.

Feline Sleepy? 😸
...but having trouble sleeping? 😴
At the heart of any good night’s sleep is a healthy balance in hormones. Serotonin and melatonin are almost literally day and night in hormone terms. They perform opposite jobs and yet they must work in harmony to keep the body balanced. 🧠
Your levels of melatonin are boosted when it’s dark, whereas serotonin levels increase in sunshine and light environments. In short, melatonin helps you get to sleep and serotonin helps you feel awake when you get up the next day. 🌃🌇
A lack of melatonin can cause sleeplessness and even insomnia, whereas a deficiency in serotonin can result in feelings of depression and lethargy. So the key to get a good night’s sleep is to increase your melatonin levels at night and boost your serotonin levels the next morning. But how do you boost your melatonin at night? Here are three things I've added to my bedtime routine this year that have worked wonders! ⤵️
1️⃣ Dim the lights in the evening and avoid the bright screen of a television, smartphone or laptop for a while before bed (blue light sends signals through the retina to the brain, which shuts down melatonin release in response). 🖥💡🎮
2️⃣ Eating certain foods that are rich in melatonin can also help naturally raise your levels. Goji berries, walnuts, almonds, cherries, pineapple, bananas and oranges all contain substantial amounts of melatonin. 🍊🍌🍒
3️⃣ Take a melatonin supplement. I've been experimenting with @drsupplementsltd Natural Sleep Remedy for over a week now and the results have been fantastic. The key ingredient 5-HTP* metabolises into both seratonin and melatonin, giving you restful sleep and plenty of energy in the morning. And of course - it's 100% vegan! 🌿
Do you have a bedtime ritual that helps you get a good night's sleep? Any tips to add to the list? 🙏🏽
*5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that your body naturally produces. 5-HTP produces serotonin, which can be converted into the hormone melatonin.

Of course the foods that help depression aren't the chemical filled, fake ones! REAL FOOD, REAL RESULTS 🖤
Posted @withregram • @nutritional_factz 🌈 Foods That Help Depression
🍎1. Apple. They are high in antioxidants, which can help to prevent and repair oxidation damage on the cellular level
🍓2. Berries. Bluberries, streberries, raspberries, and blackberries are some of the highest antioxidant foods available to us. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition and Environment Medicine shows that two years of consuming berries, patients had significantly lower depression score
🥑3. Avocado. They are full of healthy fat that your brain needs in order to run and think smoothly.
🥜4. Walnuts. Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids in walnuts can reduce depression symptoms.
🌰5. Beans. They are good for your mood because you’ll digest them slowly, which stabilizes blood sugar levels.
🥫6. Seeds. Just like walnuts, they are rich in mood-boosting omega-3 fatty acid
🥧7. Mushrooms. They are like a probiotic in that they promote healthy gut bacteria.
🥚8. Onions. They contain high concentrations of anti-inflammatory flavonoid antioxidants that contribute to their anticancer properties.
🍅9. Tomatoes. Many studies have shown an elevated incidence of folate deficiency in patients with depression -

🥙Easy GF Falafels and Arabic Salad🥙
Earler this week, Rob and I enjoyed making this delicious, plant based meal for our friend who joined us for dinner. I forgot how tasty Arabic food is! 🤤 So tasty, that I recreated it all over again the following day! 😄 The ingredients are super healthy, and we baked the falafels instead of frying them, which helps retain nutrients.
🍴Recipe🍴 (Serves 4)
400g can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 white onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic
1 handful of fresh coriander
1 handful of fresh parsley
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp sumac
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp sea salt
Juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup chickpea flour
2 tbsp tahini
2 tsp tbsp olive oil
4 large vine tomatoes, chopped into cubes
1 cucumber, chopped into cubes
1 red onion, chopped into cubes
1 handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 handful of fresh mint, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place chickpeas, onion and garlic into a food processor or blender. Process until the mixture is finely chopped (not mushy).
2. Add coriander, parsley, cumin, sumac, cayenne, pepper, salt and lemon juice. Process until everything is green and mixed in.
3. Add the chickpea flour and tahini, and process again until blended.
4. Place falafel mixture into a bowl and form round balls of about 2 inches diameter. Place carefully into an oven dish, and drizzle over the olive oil. Bake for 15 minutes, turn over, and bake for a further 15 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, prepare the salad by adding everything into a large bowl, and tossing together.
6. Serve the falafels and salad with toasted GF @bfreefoods pitta bread, @thepreciouspeahoumous and green olives.

Avoiding high inflammatory foods such as refined carbs, artificial sweeteners, processed meat, red meat, dairy, eggs & gmos is essential for healthy skin..
4.) Limit Caffeine & Alcohol ☕️🍺- Caffeine consumption promotes a heightened state of stress which increases cortisol. High cortisol levels are linked to skin breakouts. Alcohol consumption impairs liver function. A proper functioning liver is essential for maintaining healthy skin as the is responsible for removing harmful toxins..

Have you got 15 minutes for these sweet potato egg nests with greens on the side 🍳
Whilst the calories for myself are pretty low. It’s a pretty satisfying meal. You could add some bacon / chorizo or even double up the recipe to reach your needs.
I invested in a decent table top spiraliser several years ago and has been one of the best investments in my kitchen apart from my kitchen knife, non toxic cooking pans and cutting boards.
Eggs are a true superfood. Loaded with every nutrient apart from vitamin C. But, the benefits of being an omnivore allows for food combining = more nutrient density and synergies which allow overall better nutrient absorption potential and hopefully better health ❤️
2 medium free range organic eggs
1 medium sweet potato - spiralised
1 tsp ghee
Handful of Russian / black kale (calvo nero)
1. Heat a oven proof pan on medium high heat. Preheat grill to medium.
2. Add 3/4 of the ghee.
3. Sauté the sweet potato noodles for 3-4 minutes until softened. Divide into 2 equal amounts. Then form nests make sure the noodles are tightly packed.
4. Add the remaining 1/4 ghee into the middle of the hole.
6. Crack an egg in each nest.
7. Add the kale to the side of the nests. Cook for 4 minutes.
8. Transfer the pan under the grill. Cook for 1-3 minutes until your desired yolk consistency.
9. Remove from oven, sprinkle with sea salt and tuck in.
Super easy super simple.
Share with someone who needs this in their life 🔥
Have a great week ahead. Ryan ✌🏽❤️ .

Building muscle with weight lifting may burn fat at a higher rate than high amounts of cardio, in a shorter amount of time! Of course, that doesn’t mean you’ll get a six pack overnight. But it does mean it might be worth fitting into a regular routine during the week.
This is my second time making this recipe because the first time I made this I failed at wrapping the collard greens well but never fear y’all I have a fool proof way to wrap it well every time! Swipe right for ingredients!
1. We are blanching our collard green so if you know how to do this great you can skip to step 3 if not continue reading; Get a pan thats large enough to fit your collard green leaf, add about 2 in water to it and bring it to a boil
2. Once the water is boiling, hold ur collard green by the stem and dip it in for about 15 seconds or until the leaf looks cooked (this will happen very fast so it should not be more than 30 seconds)
3. Lay your collard green flat on a cutting board with the round side of the stem up and orient it so the long side of the leaf is parallel with the long side of the cutting board (hotdog style) ((refer to last pic for example)) 4. Take a sharp knife cut off any extra stem and then carefully cut off the round side of the stem (think like ur filleting a fish) that’s on the leaf part. You don’t have to be super anal about this but any part that’s absurdly round ( we just are trying to get a flat surface to make rolling easier)
5. With the top of the leaf facing up, add in your toppings. You don’t need to put exactly what I put in just make sure you have some sort of “glue” like hummus or guac.
6. Once all ur filling is on the leaf take the SHORT SIDES of the leaf and fold in. Then take the bottom of the leaf and fold over the short sides and the filling.
7. Then continue to roll the leaf over the filling while simultaneously tucking int the filling so it doesn’t fall out until it forms like a burrito and is sealed.
8. Place sealed side down so it doesn’t unroll And cut in half to enjoy!
I know this prolly sounded EXTREMELY confusing so if you are a visual learner like me let me know in the comments and I can make a video to put on my story highlights!
CHIC TIP: Make you’re own dipping sauce using 3 yummy ingredients! Tahini, lemon juice, and olive oil!

*Confession: I won't do an exercise or activity that I don't like.* 😲
That's not to say that I don't do things that are difficult or that I have to really work through, but if I truly HATE (or feel worse about myself after) a certain activity, I won't do it! .
You get the greatest benefits (like improved energy, mood, and outlook) from doing activities you love and look forward to. 😊
Exercise should be FUN! It should make you feel strong, capable, and excited to do it again (after you've had a rest, of course). .
Starting April 16th, we'll be having fun, building strength, feeling confident, and cheering each other on in Boot Camp in Park Ridge! Mark your calendars (or sign up now - link in bio) because we want your beautiful spirit there! 🌺🌞
While the words “Boot Camp” may have you feeling anxious that there will be yelling and climbing involved, let me put your fears to rest - you will be working hard, but in a supportive and fun environment. And yelling has never been my thing. :) .
All levels are welcome! .
Workouts consist of a mix of strength training and bodyweight exercises, dynamic cardio (we’re not dredging up memories of The Mile from high school), plyometrics, and stretching. .
And BONUS - it's outside, so we'll get the great added benefits of connecting with nature during our workout. 🏞️🌅

NEW on the blog today; things to look out for when reading food labels. So often people get fooled by food products because it says “vegan” or “gluten free.” Just because that is on a food label DOES NOT mean it’s healthy! I am vegan and there are many packaged foods I stay away from because they are full of sugar, salt, fats and/or preservative. For example these Lenny and Larry Cookies, yes they are vegan, higher protein, and non GMO, but they are also full of sugar! Half a cookie has about 12 g of sugar. So if you eat the whole cookie that is 24g of sugar! Head over to the blog for more tips. Link is 👆🏻 Happy Shopping! 📸 @bigcameraman
Make life sweet - withOUT the sugar! ⠀
I still enjoy my sweet treats, but I limit my sugar intake and feel so much better!⠀
Thanks to products like Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener, it allows me to continue enjoying treats like this Keto chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting and have zero guilt and none of the nasty side effects (like bloating, headaches, inflammation, increased hunger, etc.) ⠀
Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener is a healthy sugar free alternative and tastes great! It’s my go to choice for sweeteners. I love that they have a “classic” blend as well as their “Golden” blend - I use them in all of my baking!⠀
Do you have favorite sugar free sweetener? Any you think I should try?⠀

😷 The #bowdelabode is being hit hard with some kind of bug - Nathan worse than I. 🙏 #flu
🍲 In the past, my go-to meal for #sick😷 days was a can of Campbell's (otherwise known as Salt-well's) condensed Chicken Noodle Soup, half a sleeve of Saltines and 12 oz. Ginger Ale. It was what I was given as a child to help settle my stomach and get SOME calories and hydration in. 🤢
🕵 I'm not super big on calorie or macro counting, but it's easy to see how some meals pack in lots of nutrition while others are mostly empty calories.
🔍 Totals for the Campbell's meal:
Calories ➡ 542
Fat ➡ 10g
Carbs ➡ 98g
Protein ➡ 13g
*sodium ➡ 2,875mg 💀 (1.11% daily value)
As an adult, I can make better choices. This morning's vitamin-packed meal includes air-fried sweet potato strips (yes, fries), 1 cup carrot chips, 1 whole green pepper, and 1 whole English cucumber. I've added a tbsp of honey 🍯 for some flavor on my taters and a 1/2 cup of hummus for a little extra protein and healthy fat. 💪 .
🔍 Totals for the meal:
Calories ➡ 609
Fat ➡ 21g
Carbs ➡ 101g
Protein ➡ 40.5g
*sodium ➡ 665mg (25% recommended daily value)
🌟 So, I maxed out my carbs around 100g in the second meal just like the first, but I doubled my intake of fat, focusing on #unsaturatedfat. 🙌 And I quadrupled my protein intake, which can be so important for recovery. Needless to say, this meal is also vastly less sodium-rich and will do wonders for my aching bod.🙏
This meal also contains MUCH more in the way of #vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, magnesium, calcium, and potassium.
Additionally, today's meal does not contain any added folic acid, which I cannot tolerate due to my #MTHFR gene mutation.
Now, for that all-important step in recovering from illness : a nap. 😴

I cannot even begin to describe how amazing this whole situation was 💯 especially eaten in quiet with my cup of coffee 🙌😆
• one scrambled @nelliesfreerange egg
• a piece of @applegate uncured turkey bacon (@whole30 approved!)
• a little @organicgirl spinach for greens/added fiber
• leftover sweet potato toast (1 small sweet tater baked at 425 for 25-30 min) topped with 1/2 Tbsp @georgiagrinders original AB + hemp hearts
• not pictured: a MCT-collagen latte (1 tsp @mynaturalforce MCT oil + 2 scoops @ancientnutrition multi-collagen, blended till frothy)
Now it’s time to tackle this long to-do list before my littles come back home 🏃♀️
