Honey Roasted Carrots 🍯 🥕
I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t my favourite way to eat carrots 🙈
They make a perfect side for a Sunday roast
How do you roast carrots?
For a low FODMAP option swap the honey with one of the following:
- Maple Syrup 🍁
- Golden Syrup
- Rice Malt Syrup
In our house the best way to get some quick tasty veg into a family meal is roasties ♨️🥕🥦🥔
The good thing about roasting veg is that the fat soluble vitamins K, A, E they contain love a bit of heat to release their goodness especially home grown ones, so it’s a win win 💪🏻👍🏻😋 #nutrition#veg
So Purim is coming (somewhat of a Jewish Halloween)... Are you excited?
Or nervous? Nervous about the overwhelming amount of food, treats, partying?
Purim has always been one of my favorite holidays; I love the festive atmosphere that is heralded in at the beginning of the month, the costumes, the food.
But, I have always been overwhelmed by the amount of chocolate and candy and not knowing how I would stay in "control." Should I skip breakfast to "save" calories for later? Could I eat a cookie for breakfast? Treats in the car? And how about dessert at the end of the meal? I remember nausea I felt from eating excessive amounts of chocolate- as if this was the last day I would EVER eat chocolate.
So friends, listen to my advice for myself and maybe you'll receive some calm.
Number 1: Enjoy the day! Focus on the importance of the day- we experienced a miracle! This is a happy time. Let go of your food anxieties. Even if just for today.
Number 2: Enjoy the food you eat. Regardless if it's a cookie, piece of steak, or a large salad. Try and sit while you eat. Eat when you're hungry. Remeber, there will still be food around tomorrow so try to stop when you're full. Even if not...
(Number 3: )One day of wacky scheduling causing weird meal times and snacking, will NOT make you unhealthy. (barring any health conditions already present. For example, someone with diabetes must still take insulin if required)
Number 4: Eat breakfast. YES! I know you are busy, have some protein too. With your cookies. Or whatever you are eating for your am meal.
Number 5: If it helps you relax and feel good, go exercise. Not to "burn" off the food you're eating. But to be healthy and calm.
Number 5: Stay hydrated. Drink water. There is a lot of running around, and you will be thirsty! Bring some water while you go to deliver shalach manos.
I hope these tips help give you peace of mind and calm as we experienced collectively through the Purim miracle so long ago.
What helps you enjoy Purim? #rd2be#purim#holidays#holiday#jewish#kosher#food#ie#intuitiveeating#miracles#peace#haes#healthateverysize
heyyyy so i had hibachi for dinner last night but never posted it!! also had the miso soup & ginger salad & a great time w my friends!!! happy weekend babes! also i sub the fried rice for steamed rice bc it doesn't fill me up too much to ignore the other foods & doesn't make my stomach hate me so i can eat more🙃🤗💛
Attempted a single serve raw cheesecake bar using @dani_nemeh recipe, but I gotta figure out the proportions rather than just eyeballing it because the top layer didn’t turn out creamy!! Definitely didn’t help that I soaked the cashews for 3 minutes instead of 3 hours (impatient) BUT the crust was dank af.
The past two days I’ve been away from my phone and it has felt really good 🤗🤗
Okay if you haven’t tried the @aidellssausage chicken burgers yet go get yourself some! So tasty and take 2 minutes to heat in a pan. 170 calories for 1. I served mine with some sweet tater fries and a big ole green salad with the Trader Joe’s green goddess dressing. Healthy doesn’t need to be complicated!
In the span of one month actually attempting to put on weight....I’ve gained a total of pound pound 😂😂😂to some this is not an accomplishment but I am proud! My body is already giving off the signs that I’m finding better health and balance.
In terms of stress levels, I am not exactly zen, but damn-I am way more chill than a few months ago.
My body and mind are finding balance. I encourage each of you to make those changes to do achieve your own happiness. —
My top two types of food cuisine is: Latin (any and all - 🇵🇦🇪🇨🇲🇽🇩🇴🇨🇺🇵🇷🇸🇻🇨🇴 🇻🇪, etc. etc. etc.) and then Asian (🇨🇳 🇻🇳 🇰🇷🇰🇵🇵🇭 🇯🇵, etc. etc. etc.) but I’ve developed such a love and appreciation for food from 🇹🇭 (Thai food) - especially their Curry! This Massaman curry is lifeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Currently in takeout heaven with this!
Fried tofu, potatoes, carrots, onions, and broccoli (and loads of other veggies) with coconut milk and peanuts (or cashews) 🤤🤤🤤
Saturday night sweets 🍪 (and now Saturday night divas by the spice girls is stuck in my head just because I said Saturday night 🤷🏻♀️😜) this pb chocolate chip cookie rounded out a #vegan dinner choc full of veggies from @weaverstreetmarket ate it after a day of being outside in the 78 degree weather! I might actually have a little sunburn! 🙈
Spending the weekend in Austin with Dad showing him all the things I love about this city! He isn’t into big cities so it has been hilarious 😂. Late lunch @innout 🍔 protein style hamburger for me + classic cheeseburger for him & fries for both!
I’ve always seen the sweet potato brownie recipes pop up on my Pinterest and Instagram feed and have never given them a second thought until the other day...
I didn’t make these to be a “healthy dessert” I just made them to have a easy grab and go snack available. However I must say these guys are pretty good ❤️👌🏻!
I’ve never been good at following recipes so here’s roughly how I made this:
1 very large sweet potato (peeled, diced, roasted and puréed)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup @enjoylife chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups gluten free flour
2/3 cup agave
1/2 cup coconut oil
pinch of sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
Pro tip: spread peanut-butter on top! Let me know if you try it! I promise you, you won’t be disappointed! 🙅♀️
Most likely the extent of my movement for a few days 👆🏻Grandma and Grandpa pace strolls through some of the biggest cacti I've ever seen! The weather here is beautiful- brisk but refreshing and it's sooo nice to take life a little slower for a bit. Now if you'll excuse me, I found a place for a cheap mani in town 💅🏼
This isn’t a food pic and probably seems irrelevant to this account. However, it does a good job at portraying my intuition. I have been told my entire life that I have a bizarre taste in decor and style, which I own up to. Lots of shapes, lines, out of the norm colors, and balance. My house isn’t in perfect shape but I love to decorate with the element of balance. As I’ve listened more to my intuition I have felt that my style has been a way for me to release the balance I so desperately needed to survive. I found this artwork jem, and thought it would be perfect for my dinner table. It reminds me that life is hectic, my foods aren’t always balanced, things are out of order, and I often branch out into places way outside my comfort zone. But, what this piece also reminds me is that after all the chaos, I’m still standing. I don’t have to live a perfectly habitual life to be beautiful, inviting, or a piece of art. I can live and do on a whim, and still be standing.
swipe left for more pics BUT we all know if this was tinder, you would be swiping right... ;) i literally inhaled this after an hour of power up yoga but could go for another round ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ trader joe’s black bean pasta with salmon + spinach & mushrooms sautéed in avo oil + roasted brussels sprouts + capers + sun dried tomato + garlic paste + nutritional yeast + hella chili flake
Whole meal crumpet + apricot jam for morning tea on this kind of cloudy Sunday morning ⛅️.Crumpets are one of my favourite foods, switching to a whole meal variety like these from @golden.crumpets will add more fibre helping you to meet the recommendations of 25-30g of fibre per day!
Pizza on the weekend is always a good idea, especially when it’s loaded with alllll the veggies 🍕🥗
Cauliflower pizza crust with pesto, mozzarella, ground turkey, bell peppers, red onions and tomatoes then topped with @organicgirl arugula and goat cheese once it was done cooking 🍅🙌🏽🌶
The Peanut Sauce that will rock your world 😈
What a retreat! It was raining and cold, the power went out, all the toilets were clogged at one point... just goes to show our perspective is everything. We can see everything that isn't meeting our expectations and resist that. Or we can see opportunities to learn, to grow, and to have fun in a different way. Taking responsibility for our reactions. Les ride this wave of life like 🤙😙 So proud of you @brandilyn_tebo @kundalinikris
Absolute rockstars. ✨
Da Peanut Sauce 👌

Cruciferous crunch salad sautéed with some coconut aminos on top of some chicken and rice! Mustard dressing from the one and only @courtneykiing - spicy brown mustard, coco aminos and liquid stevia! Perfect amount spicy and perfect amount sweet 👌🏽 Nice lunch today before I indulge in some Mexican food tonight !
Exploring Philly!! 😊❤️🇺🇸 just went to the Revolutionary War Museum and sat down for a snack. Cheese plate🧀 + fruit cup🍓. On the line up for cheese: triple-cream Brie, English cheddar, cave-aged gouda, and aged blue cheese.
✨A MILLION DREAMS ARE KEEPING ME AWAKE✨ No, really. I was up at 4:30 this morning 😂
It's funny, because only a year ago I was in such a different place. As a senior in my dietetics program, I felt like I lacked purpose and motivation. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life 😳 Instead of chasing dreams, I struggled just to get out of bed.
BUT HOW THE TABLES HAVE TURNED 🙌 Yeah Girl! Nutrition has given me an outlet to share what I am now SO passionate about, which is helping people feel confident & positive about the food on their plate. You guys, I can't tell you how much FUN this is! I love taking about food & nutrition. I love this community. I LOVE that this keeps me up at night because I have endless ideas running through my head. I can say with certainty that I have found my passion 😭🙌💕 #thankyouGod
If you feel like you're in the same situation I was in last year, my one piece of advice is find what you're passionate about, and give a little energy towards that everyday. Start a blog. Join a club. Volunteer. And then watch what happens! 😜
Thank you all SO much for supporting me on this journey! I hope that you all can find what fuels you, too! #yeahgirl

“The jack of all trades is the master of none.”
True experts KNOW their area of expertise and are OK with saying “Hey, you might not be the right client for me. “
It took me awhile to learn that. Back in the day I’d take any client, anywhere, at any time. It’s definitely beneficial to get a lot of experience initially in the trenches.
It took YEARS of working with a wide variety of clientele to find who I wanted to focus on: badass women (and guys but mostly women) who like to lift heavy, eat carbs, and are action takers for their goals. 🍩🍔🍨💪
Now I have a network of other fitpros I trust and can refer to if someone isn’t a best fit for what I do. Like @bnutritionandwellness for intuitive eating. @libbyrothschild for plant based nutrition . @nutritionvixen for autoimmune conditions. @petermollofitness for anything training related.
Real experts aren’t afraid to admit they don’t know it all and seek out others advice and refer out at times if it’s best for the client. 💪💯
Raise your hand if you could eat the whole bag in one sitting 🙋🏼♀️or wait is that just me? 🤷🏼♀️
Snackin’ on my FAVORITE tortilla chips and some homemade guacamole this lovely Saturday afternoon. I’ve never found tortilla chips so salty and addicting. They’re completely gluten/grain/corn/soy free and made with cassava flour, coconut flour, avocado oil, and chia seeds. Can’t get much better ingredients than that! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend 💚
Baked tofu is one of our top easy proteins to have on hand during the week. Plus our meal prep recipe is easy👌!!
We use organic extra firm tofu (completely drain by slicing block into fourths and putting on a plate with a paper towel and something heavy on top for 15-20 mins). Once drained cut into cubes and toss in a bowl with soy sauce and garlic pepper. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes on the top shelf (tossing halfway). Cook time depends on size of your cubes and how crispy you like your tofu 😍.
