Literally stumbled upon this at Jimbo's two days ago. What a happy accident! The first thing I noticed was that it's a COMPLETE protein aka it contains all the essential amino acids. This is unlike brown rice protein or pea protein which need to be mixed together to create a complete protein.
Omega 3's are part of a 3-6-9 family made popular by Lil John and the Eastside Boys that you NEED to add to your diet. Omega-3 (and 6) fatty acid's are essential fats, which means that your body can't make them and needs to derive them from food. 9 isn't essential so we'll skip that one.
Hey guys! Quick but V important post. If you haven’t head of it yet I’m about to blow your mind: Everything butt the Bagel Seasoning. This stuff is so good that it’s selling for twice as much on Amazon as it costs in store (it’s a Trader Joe’s product). As the name suggests, it’s basically the top of a bagel scraped off and bottled. It’s especially satisfying for those of us trying to shimmy our way into a bikini for summer because it makes everything taste more carby (if that makes sense). I put it on avocado toast, hold the bread, and barely miss the bread.
Despite being pretty healthy and knowing I SHOULD be eating greens every day, I don’t particularly enjoy the pressure of meeting that quota. However, if you want to have glowing, dewy skin you just gotta do it. It also makes it harder that most “greens” associations are salads aka dinner or lunch. Since I don’t love salads I needed a new solution so I came up with one! I now eat an entire container of spinach/kale every single day and get it in first thing in the morning so there are no excuses (I make this at night, every night, and let it sit in the fridge overnight so it’s ready in the morning). Try it and you can now justify your shitty dinner - you’re welcome!
Get it? Zucchini oats. Just when I thought that I couldn't possibly like overnight oats any more I discovered THIS. If you like zucchini bread then TRY IT. Not only does it taste like sweet and savory zucchini bread but it's also super simple. And good for you unlike its aforementioned muse.
Tell me this doesn't remind you of the rhinestone back pockets of True Religion jeans starting from 2002 to.....now? I'm fairly certain they're still a thing in parts of this country that will remain unnamed. BUT I digress.
Who doesn't love cereal? There's something so satisfying about sitting with your bowl and chomping away spoonful by spoonful. If they didn't have the nutritional equivalency of a brick I would probably keep Fruit Loops in my h̶o̶u̶s̶e̶ apartment at all times.
Just when you thought there was nothing more pretentious than avocado toast and matcha lattes, superfood coffee decided to have a moment and I am HERE for it. Chugging coffee as quickly as possible to wakeTF up is no longer just a necessary means to an end, it’s become a delicious experience - and you even get a nutritional boost! I now take my morning coffee routine as seriously as my nighttime skin routine (read: v seriously). When it’s done I sip, meditate, and gradually wake up. It’s honestly bliss: I highly recommend.
I really don't recommend skipping the agave in this recipe but do you boo! So simple and refreshing. It's like if CRISP was a food. The food equivalent to a white button-down fresh from the dry cleaner.
Have you ever gotten a hot coffee, taken a few sips, and then forgotten about it? An hour later after it’s cooled to room temperature you go back for a sip and get that gross acidic taste. It’s like taking a shot of vodka with none of the fun side effects.
What this isn’t: an authentic Tom Kah recipe. What this is: delicious, comparable in taste to traditional Tom Kah, takes 5 minutes to prep, and you likely already have the ingredients. I like to bulk up the soup with a ton of vegetables, which, again, isn’t the traditional way to make it, but hey! it’s my recipe.I make a batch of this and have dinner for the whole week. If needed, you can add tofu or shrimp (WILD CAUGHT) as a protein source.
After eating salmon for more days in a row than I feel comfortable sharing, I decided I could not eat one single bite more of that delicious little fish for at least a month and needed to shake things up. Let me add that I love salmon bc of how easy it is. I tried cooking halibut to no avail: the fire-alarm may have gone off, so I wasn’t particularly inclined to try again. As I racked my brain, I thought to myself…….what about tuna???
To avoid mincing words I’ll just go ahead and say it: this salad is fucking phenomenal and I’m not even a salad fan. Salad is always bland and unsatisfying to me, but that all changed when I was introduced to Sweetgreen. As suggested by the name, they’re a salad take-out restaurant that has become my go-to lunch break in NYC. I love their lentil avocado salad, and used it as nominal inspo for this recipe.
I posted this “recipe” on my Instagram story last week and got a lot of DM’s about it which is shocking to me because it’s so easy and I’ve been making it since I was 11. No joke. I don’t even really feel like it deserves a post, but it’s a good, easy staple. I like eating this for dinner because it’s packed with protein, fiber, and nutrients, and keeps me full until the next day. Salty sauteed broccoli tastes better than french fries to me imo. Here ya go. 10 minutes I SWEAR
I’ve never really bought into the notion of ‘comfort food’ as being savory food since I’m more of a sweets girl, but living on the East Coast and its subsequent -7 degree winters has thrown that proclivity right out the window. At this point I would rather rip my teeth out than make any type of frozen acai bowl so I’ve had to come up with other things to eat. Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise since I suppose eating 27 acai bowls per week is not necessarily a well rounded diet.
There’s only one thing that’s worse than going through a breakup, and that’s getting fat after you break up. I would literally rather die. So to save myself, and my waist line, from going off the deep end I’ve been making a conscious effort to stay full with more proteins and fats, and less sugar.
A few weeks ago I visited my #goals friend Chris in Dallas. After marveling at his home/interior design for hours, we left for yoga and lunch at The Honor Bar. He implored my to try the kale salad, explaining that it has quite the reputation. It did not disappoint and I knew I needed to recreate.
As I've mentioned in previous posts, I tend to find a recipe I like and then eat nothing but that for months at a time. Befittingly, I have been ordering a sushi burrito from down the street every day for both lunch and dinner and subsequently racking up a small fortune in my Takeout category on Mint (if you don't already use this I highly recommend).
Hello beauties! After eating nothing but cucumbers for the last week or so my taste-buds and I decided it was time to branch out. Introducing the Fresh Mex BOWL: cucumber free, protein packed, and all the good fats. Before I unintentionally rhyme again let's get to the point.....
Every few recipes I make something that I could eat for months at a time, for every meal, and not get sick of. This is one of those recipes and I'm so pleased with myself I could CRY. Plus it's low-carb for those of you who are into that sort of thing.
Un. Real. Recipe is for 6 but you might as well make 100 because they’re so good AND they take under 5 minutes to make. Before diving in, know you can indulge relatively guilt free: dates are loaded with minerals, have a low glycemic impact, and contain a ton of fiber for your digestive system.
Over the weekend I was invited to a BBQ.........not exactly the mecca of healthy, nutritious food. As I mulled over my potential options of greasy chips or a sub-par veggie burger I quickly decided it was in my best interest to bring something for myself/anyone else who was interested.
I’ve made these both with and without oil and I can honestly say I prefer them without. Counter-intuitively they are crispier without it. For oil-free flavor I add fresh rosemary and bake all together. Get ready for your house to smell amazing.
I love eating Bircha because it contains so many superfoods that you’re hitting basically all of your vitamin/mineral requirements (with the exception of B12). Also low-carb since summer will be here before we know it.
Whoever said "idle hands are the devil's workshop" smacked the shit out of the nail's head. Whenever I'm bored I get into trouble (take that with a grain of salt because my definition of trouble is relatively low-key).
The post you've all been waiting for! As you can see in the stats posted below, this is how I keep it 100....literally. Just look at all those percentages! I'll be doing a bunch of these but here's my first example. My weekdays are generally a little stricter than my weekends. This is an example for a Tuesday. Going up.
LET'S talk about this little additive that I believe to be one of the driving forces in America's obesity problem by creating a public who is increasingly finding themselves powerless against their insatiable appetites and thinking it's their own fault.
