You're going to get sick of seeing my coleslaw before I get sick of eating it. With every meal πŸ˜‚ #sorrynotsorry
Here's some #easypaleo meal ideas with coleslaw 🍴πŸ₯— deconstructed hamburger bowl & slaw, tuna salad with avocado & slaw, and lettuce wrap burger with grilled beets & slaw. Because I ❀ mayo. If you haven't tried Sir Kensington's mayonnaise from Costco it's a must for #lifeafterwhole30 #foodfreedom #sirkensingtons
And thanks for all the love and support yesterday, vulnerability hangover is a real thing 😚

I get self conscious posting and sharing a lot, I don't want to come across like I think that I've got it all figured out or that I think that I'm better than anyone. I'm just in this place where I'm learning and it's really exciting to me because I needed it so bad. And now I found a way to fit health and wellness into my life and if I can help anybody with that it's worth it.
I still struggle, I still make food choices that make me feel gross or eat more than I mean to and feel out of control at times. I still have food triggers, I was bulemic for 9 years and training my brain to not think or act that way anymore is a process. I'm definitely getting better. I definitely have more days of food freedom and of feeling well than I ever did before and for that I'm so grateful. I recently found an app that is helping me stick to my food freedom. It's just an accountability app and I put a checkmark on a calendar for days I feel like I've lived my food freedom and it's helping a ton! (Basically, it's a sticker chart like the ones I make for my kids πŸ˜‚) Anyway, if you're still reading, I love the communities I have found on Instagram. People sharing their passions has really blessed my life and helped me find my passions too. People sharing about love for self and how they are learning to love their bodies has given me the courage to do the same. I'm more able to focus on what my body can do than what it looks like and that brings me peace. I'm so glad I found #whole30 and #yoga and #doterra and mostly #spirituality They're all a part of what makes being alive feel good!

I have the whitest baby, much easier to burn than my daughter ever was. He'll burn in 20 minutes so I've had the opportunity to help out his little marshmallow skin with this blend 3 times! I alternate with the goo from an aloe leaf to assist the burn in healing. Blend includes lavender, peppermint, helichrysm or immortelle, and frankincense diluted with fractionated coconut oil. All lovely oils for your skins health and repair 😎

Here's how that slaw turned out with bbq chicken and asparagus πŸ€— Fave dinner! #realfood #jerf #paleo #lifeaftetwhole30 #foodfreedom

When the baby gets the bug spray but it doesn't matter because it's TerraShield from doTERRA πŸ˜‰
Keepin the bugs away with essential oils! This blend includes citronella, eucalyptus, rose, white fir, wild orange, and other oils that the bugs hate!

Pushing and carrying 3 kids for our whole hike =120lbs of resistance! It is possible to be active and exercise even with little kids πŸ•Ί

Gardening here in northern California is different than what I was used to, the slugs and snails were eating all my plants before they even had a chance! Luckily this is working like a charm!
Slugs and snails specifically are repelled by cedarwood oil but I am also using a general insect deterrent that has 10 drops each of rosemary, peppermint, thyme, and clove oils mixed with about a cup of water and sprayed around my plants and garden edges πŸš«πŸ‰πŸŒπŸ›πŸœ

I wasn't sure how this combo would turn out but... it's my new favorite! Salmon & peach salad with mayo and cilantro πŸ‘πŸŸβ˜˜ #lifeafterwhole30 #foodfreedom #jerf #eatwellfeelwell

I haven't done an oil post on here in a while so I'm excited to share some of the new fun stuff I've been doing with them! I use them every day, I'm so drawn to the oils and all the healing and growth they bring into my life!
Early in the week I felt that tingle in my throat and knew it was a sore throat coming on. Luckily I know how to tackle that and I don't have to sit back and watch while a cold runs me over!
Here's what I do when I think I'm getting sick. As often as I can or at least every 2 hours I apply an oil. If it's in my throat I put one drop of oregano oil in a glass with a cup of water and gargle a sip at a time (careful, it's a hot oil). I apply OnGuard to my neck or to the bottoms of my feet and I use a blend of equal parts oregano and melaleuca with FCO in a roller bottle to my neck or toes (reflexology for your throat & sinuses). That's it! After 2 days I'm feeling like new and pretty sure I beat off some germs that were trying to get me down! And the best part is I can jump on this the minute I think I feel something coming on. I have everything I need at my fingertips πŸ’¦
