Supper time! Healthy food isn't boring and is beautiful. It can also be so easy! Grilled steak, sautéed mushrooms and a little Roma tomato with a little drizzle of Italian dressing and topped that with a microgreen salad I got at the farmers market last week. Soooo good! #beautifulfood#healthyfood#foodie#food

My journey is mine to walk. My story is mine to tell. My love is mine to give. It’s not always happy, but I’m slowly reclaiming my mind from the negative voices, and taking my power back. #mentalhealth#selfcare#summernights
#NTI2018 Day 1 consisted of taking the subway to Faneuil Hall, exploring the city by tour bus, and then checking in at registration for the conference and picking up our badge ribbons! I also did a quick Instagram live with the AACN team! We’ll be doing those each evening to recap the day if you wanna follow along! 🙌🏼 I’m getting some much needed sleep before a very early 8am start tomorrow! 😘

I find that mothers are the most supportive humans I know in my life. My own mom, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, god mothers, and Mother Earth. .
Thanking Mother Earth for supporting me in many yoga poses during the #YogaChallenge . Today is the last day and I’m summing it up with a tree pose.
Heads up to make sure no coconuts knock me down. 😉🌴🥥🌞
Vinaka @yoga_linny & @plantstyleandgrace for always asking me to join you two on yoga challenges! Half a world away and I feel the friendship love. Xoxo 💖🌸
CRAVINGS 🍫🍰🍪🍦🍕🌭 Do you struggle with them? Cravings have been a big challenge for me throughout my life, and historically I end up giving in to them pretty quickly. I always used to tell myself that if my body was craving it, it must be needing it… AMIRIGHT?! 🤷♀️ Well, I just learned in my mindful nutrition course that cravings come from your MIND 🧠, not your BODY 🙅♀️… sooo it turns out that my excuse was a BUNCH of baloney I told myself to justify eating crap! 🤦♀️😬
A healthy relationship with food is one in which our eating is PURPOSEFUL:
1. water & veggies MAKE us full 💦🥦
2. protein KEEPS us full 🍳
3. high fiber, low sugar, controllable carbs give us good, sustained energy 🍠
4. accessories (healthy fats, dressings, marinades, nuts & toppings, etc) make meals more DELISH so we eat more veggies and feel FULL and SATISFIED 🥑🥜🍯 The cravings for the other stuff is EXTRA - not purposeful, but enjoyable (still SUPER important!) - and the BEST foods are purposeful AND enjoyable! The GOAL is to turn cravings into things that also serve a purpose! 🍽💖
Wanna learn more awesomely helpful info like this and stay accountable to implementing mindful eating techniques in your relationship with food WITH me? 🙋♀️👯♀️ My 90-day challenge group focused on Holistic Nutrition & Mindfulness starts on JUNE 1st 👉 #PROJECTHAPPINESS , and it’s not too late to join! Reach out (or just fill out the link in my bio if you’re shy! ☺️💞) - you deserve a balanced, healthy & anxiety-free relationship with food, too 🙏🙌💕
Nothing we do stays in a vacuum. Each choice we make every minute contributes to our future moments. So when we make life giving choices we set ourselves up for more life giving moments. ⛰️ It may be a hike or committing to something outside your comfort zone, + even saying no to something that doesn't aline. All of those things directly impact how we experience moments to come. 💙 What's a recent choice you've made that your future self will thank you for? 💫
This is a great non-toxic face mask that will benefit your face greatly! Grapefruit helps tighten the skin and purifys pores. Cypress can awaken dull complexions and has an overall toning effect on the skin. Coffee will bring a refreshing glow to your skin. And this is all non toxic and you can make yourself! .
8 months difference. Sometimes you just need to get out of your own head and take a step back. From a 25 year old in an old women's body to be able to live a happy and healthy active life. Forever thankful
Today I flew through Phoenix, AZ on my way home to Miami. The beautiful mountains I saw through the window of the plane definitely left a desire in me to return. 😍 The vortex’s also have me kind of curious. Anyone been? What did you think? I think I have a new bucket list addition. 💜
I need to talk about this.
Before you scroll on and say, ughhhh another post about the dress, the bride, the wedding, who cares...do you know who this lady is?
This is the bride’s Mother. She is American. She was a single mom, she raised Meghan by herself.
And that is how she attended the Royal Wedding. By Herself.
She was the only member of her daughter’s family to attend the wedding.
She sat by herself, in front of hundreds of millions of people, in a strange country, and watched her daughter marry Prince Harry.
Imagine how proud she must have felt.
Imagine how lonely and scared and overwhelmed she must have felt in that church.
I cried about seven times this weekend just looking at her and thinking about her in that situation because I’m very independent and I can tell you, I’ve been intimidated walking into far less daunting situations as a single mom.
Lady, YOU are a QUEEN. Well Done ♥️
