Have you ever made butter chicken? It’s Indian dish and I made it for the first time tonight I’m sure it won’t be the last. It has spices like turmeric, garam masala and cumin. I used the recipe from @nomadsmarketplace. This company is super special because you can shop recipes, but not just any kind of recipes. The focus is on Indian, middle eastern and Thai dishes. If you want to check out the ingredients for the butter chicken, click the link in my bio. Use “LIVELYMEALS25” for a 25% discount. Head over to my Instagram stories to get the butter chicken recipe!
Good morning and happy Friday 🤗 no classes today, football game tomorrow, and then I’m home for thanksgiving break and I couldn’t be happier! Kicked off today with blueberry chocolate chip paleo @birchbenders pancakes 😛 Pro tip: add cinnamon to your pancake batters! Doesn’t matter what flavor they are, makes any pancake taste amazing!! 👌🏻 I hope everyone has an amazing day and an even better weekend 💕
3 drops of this on the shower floor and you will feel like you are in a spa. Sometimes you just need to close your eyes and escape for a little while. This is a simple way for me to “pamper myself” and is one of my favorite ways to wake up in the morning. It basically feels like I am standing in a giant diffuser 😂

If you exercise lots, you need to fuel yourself well. I’ve very much focused this year on more cooking, eating healthier and also fuelling my body well for exercise. The latter, I have been quite poor at previously and often wondered why some of my runs were so lethargic. Since changing my diet and paying more attention to it, my exercise and energy levels have changed so much. For the better. I used to be scared of food in fear of putting weight on. I probably had some food issues without realising. I now eat well, as balanced as I can but also enjoy life and food ☺️ Tomato chicken and veggies wholewheat pasta dish tonight. So easy. So quick and can make in bulk so can be used for lunch tomorrow or another dinner. I love playing around with flavours so always ensure I add herbs or spices to many things I cook. Tonight, I was about the herbs and garlic 👌🏻 I basically cooked the following ingredients in one pot on the hob. I left the chickpeas, basil, spinach and salami to the very end to add in. Cooking time was about 25-30 minutes on a low heat, simmering. Quantities can be whatever you want depending on how many people you’re cooking for and the flavours you like. This is very much a ‘throw’ it in a pot dish with whatever ingredients you have in the fridge. I cooked everything in olive oil with avocado oil. ➡️ Chicken breasts diced ➡️ Small amount of salami ➡️ 1 x Onion ➡️ Button mushrooms sliced in halves ➡️ 1 x chopped courgette ➡️ 2 garlic cloves finely chopped ➡️ 2 x tins of chopped tomatoes (I used one with mixed herbs in it) ➡️ Spinach
➡️ Chickpeas ➡️ Handful of fresh basil chopped ➡️ 2 x tsps of oregano ➡️ Salt and pepper for flavouring ➡️ Drizzle with a little red wine 🍷
Served with wholewheat penne pasta (Or rice, quinoa etc.) and of course, I added what I always do....a bowl of greens 👌🏻 Broccoli and asparagus.
I also sprinkled a little parmesan and some pine nuts upon serving.
Cooking doesn’t have to take hours and food can be full of flavours 😊
Loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals - these nature candies are quite a treat when it comes to satisfying your sweet tooth. Berries are also included in the 'berry' few list of acceptable fruits when trying to achieve ketosis: they are low in carbs and high in fiber. So much win! 🎉⠀

Weekend breakfasts are my favorite meal of the week. On school mornings, I take my superfoods with me on my drive to school (and it’s the perfect way to start my day). But, weekends, where we have more time, I love having eggs. Today, I tossed in some diced avocado, cheese and my favorite #traderjoes “Everything but the Bagel” seasoning, and served it up on toast.
It’s keeping me fueled for a long weekend basketball tourney. And I’ll have my shake as dessert when we get home tonight! 👌🏼

If you haven't already read my newest Healthy Blog post, find it linked in my bio! It focuses on saying goodbye to soda/soft drink/pop and some healthier alternatives for those carbonated and flavoured cravings of yours.
It's Monday, and I'm ready to consciously and proactively work toward a fresh start. This past week has been severely lopsided between the frequent changing of plans, illness, excessive amount of work both online and in the swimming pool, and the general inconsistencies with my headspace. I need to clean, organise, grocery shop, post pending items, have film developed, swim a shift, and then continue on. Given the election is coming up I have one prominent focus this week and that's a political blog piece and the first of the [BIG issue] posts to hit my website.
At very least, the weather today has gifted me with sunshine to bring a smile when I feel my own fading.
I remember a time when having a bagel with cream cheese was off limits. Having one = “my diet is ruined” and binge eating was the next priority on the to-do list.
It doesn’t have to be that way. I picked up a bagel yesterday, enjoyed it, and moved on with my day.
A bagel (or any food for that matter) doesn’t need to:
🚫create fear of weight gain
🚫make you feel all or nothing about what you eat
🚫lead to binge eating
Intuitive eating allows you to enjoy your bagel and move on with your day.
Are you able to have a bagel, or any food, without guilt and shame? If you’re struggling share below, let’s get some support coming your way today 😘💕

These little balls of chocolate protein heaven are a LIFESAVER when the sugar cravings hit! 🤤🍫
They’re also a great source of energy which makes them the perfect option for breakfast and chocolate for breakfast is always a win 😏
The secret ingredient? A scoop of my absolutely DELICIOUS super food protein powder! You guys, these seriously taste exactly like no-bake oatmeal cookies 🙌🏻
When you eat better, you feel better. When you feel better, you eat better.
It’s so simple yet can be so difficult.
I encourage you to reach for foods that come from the ground instead of from a factory. And then do it again, and again. Consistently making good decisions when it comes to the type of FUEL you are choosing for your body will be worth it in mind, body and spirit.
This is my favorite meal from Flower Child, the Mother Earth bowl. I could eat this every single day!

Tahini Roasted Cauliflower ✨
I was going to title it: shit week but decided not to. Roasted cauliflower is more fun. Anyone else? ✨
Sick, blocked shoulder, yelled at yesterday in public with my son. Ugh mercury go away!
Ok, so about the cauliflower I think I would do it slightly different but that nutty crust was delicious! Next time I will make double the dressing and tip it upside down so it goes INSIDE as well. Just a basic tahini, garlic, lemony dressing rubbed & basted all over then baked for 45 min at 170 c. I just love the whole baked cauli but to get the flavour everywhere is the trick. Will try to nail it this week. Roll on Monday ✨
MEAL PREP SUNDAY😄
I haven't posted about meal prep in quite a while, but I still do it EVERY Sunday. I work from home, so I usually don't do anything crazy for myself, but I do make Lyle's meals for him (best gf ever😉). Really though, I love to cook, so I'm always the one that offers and tells him I don't need help when he asks😂 anyone else feel like cooking is a form of therapy for you?! ANYWAYS, back to the point of this post: out meals for this week!
For me: 2.25 lbs of 80/20 ground beef. I make salads (that I'm sure most of you have seen on previous posts or stories) basically every day for lunch. I am obsessed with my current combo and it hasn't changed in like a month.. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?🤷🏼 I do always leave one lunch a week open cause Lyle has one short day each week that we use to go to chipotle or the sandwich shop downstairs, whose salads are bomb for me and the sandwiches are perfect for Lyle!
For Lyle: a combination of roasted sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, onions and chicken. This guy, on the other hand, cannot stand having the same meal multiple weeks in a row. He NEEDS variety in his food or he will get sick of it and won't be able to eat it again for quite a while. Not only do we change his meals up each week, but he is also the type of person that needs LOTS (and I seriously mean a lot) of food to fuel his body because his metabolism is insane.. Lucky duck🙄
It gets tricky finding good combinations at times that give him the proper amount of calories, but I'm all about being creative with food and just making things up as I go👍🏻 sometimes it's as simple as ground beef, broccoli and rice, and other times we do unstuffed cabbage rolls, stir fry, or something like this!
What are your go-to meal prep ideas?! 🍠🍎🍴

"In a perfect world, no one would need supplements. But given the stress of our modern life, the poor quality of our food supply, and the high load of toxins on our brains and bodies, most of us need a basic daily supply of the raw materials for all our enzymes and biochemistry to run as designed." ~ Dr. Mark Hyman
💥The power salmon salad with tahini dressing from the 3-Day Holiday Pretox. 🌿 Are you doing it!? If you start tomorrow, you’ll be done before Thanksgiving. 👊🏼
There’s a (free) download link in my profile. 👆🏼It’s a 3-day meal plan, full of my favorite (easy) recipes and nutrient-dense ingredients. This salad has:
wild salmon // high in omega-3s (anti-inflammatory fats!)
baby kale // high in fiber and vitamins A, C, and C (and many others)
beets // detoxifying for the liver (which is responsible for over 500 bodily functions!)
lentils // great for digestion and stabilizing sugar cravings
tahini // rich in minerals (calcium!) and high in vitamin E
Link to download in my profile! Or here:
This week’s #mealprep was quick & easy 👍🏼 I used a packet of @campbells creamy pesto skillet sauce to make the chicken. I then served it over veggie pasta 🍝 and green beans (I promise they’re under all that pasta 😂)

Sunday startin’ off well with a breakfast date at my boyfriend and I’s favorite place in SB🤗 Tried this belgian waffle today for the first time and it was so tasty but I still ended up stealing some of Josh’s french toast cause it’s too good🙈 I haven’t “worked out” in days and I’ve gotten dessert and eaten out plenty of times recently but that’s totally okay because I genuinely don’t have time to go work out consistently anymore and that’s something I’ve accepted because in the time I do have, I have been spending it living my life with freedom and enjoying every second of it instead of restricting or missing out on opportunities to spend time with people I love. My friends and I are having friendsgiving tonight and you bet I’ll be eating alllll the desserts and mashed potatoes and I’m so so excited🤤 Happy Sunday friends, enjoy it❣️❣️

Food Is Fuel 💪🏻 🏋️♀️ 🏃♀️ You wouldn’t starve your car of fuel and expect it to run efficiently would you?
Successful weight loss is not about starving, it’s about fueling your body with the healthy, low calorie food it needs to help you lose weight.
I don’t have time. Does this sound familiar? 💥 I don’t have time to make healthy food! 💥 I don’t have time to read! 💥I don’t have time to exercise! 💥I don’t have time to help myself, let alone others!
💥I don’t have time to work a 2nd or 3rd job!
What you’re really saying is, “It’s not a priority.” 😕
You see, saying “I don’t have time!” is like the grown up version of “The dog ate my homework!” It’s just an excuse that not many tend to question you on because, well, they’re probably making the same excuse.
Guess what, I do it all the time 😳 no pun intended 😂🤦♀️ And while my time is extremely limited, I do have free time. What I choose to fill that free time with is 100% my choice. I can choose to lay on the couch and then say I don’t have time to run my business. I can choose to stay up late drinking and then say I don’t have time to make healthy food. Or, I can CHOOSE to utilize my time in an efficient and healthy manor so that I can reach my goals.
This week, I chose to cut out music on my way to work. Why? So I could take advantage of TWO HOURS (that’s a lot of friking extra time in my world), to focus on my personal development and listen to my favorite new book on audio. HIGHLY recommend listening or reading this one ladies! #girlwashyourface
If you’re sick of the excuses and frustrated with not “having enough time” like I was, then DM me and let me help you make some room for the real priorities, health, happiness and freedom. 💕
