Pre dinner snack while I have some stuff cookin' ๐Ÿค“ Heirloom tomatoes with fresh garlic, garden parsley and the healthiest glug of EVOO you ever did see. (Some of my favorite foods, can you tell I'm Italian? ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น)
.
It took me 10 or 11 years to be able to tolerate tomatoes again. A decade. So all of you out there on elimination diets just know they aren't kidding when they say it can take TIME for your body to heal and accept some of the tricker foods. #girlinhealing

If you haven't made my Cashew Butter Fat Bombs, then why not?! Did you know if you wanted to save a recipe or an IG post for later, just tap the bookmark symbol on the bottom right, and you can access your saved posts on your profile! #girlinhealing

Beauteous dinner tonight ๐Ÿ˜ Just roasted up a bunch of sweet potatoes so I'm having a half with sea salt and @fourthandheart Madagascar vanilla bean ghee- it's amazing! Leftover grilled chicken and one small heirloom tomato with EVOO, sea salt & parsley from the garden. Easy, all organic, it gets the job done! #girlinhealing

Gooooood morning ๐Ÿ˜Š Had this breakfast a couple of hours ago. My to do list is always a long one these days as I have a bunch of projects & things going on so I got up extra early to get to work. I love mornings though, my energy is best then and wanes throughout the day. Are you a morning person or night owl?! ๐ŸŒ“ #girlinhealing

I'm such a stereotypical cave girl, #gimmethemeat (plus two stalks of curly kale cause I โค kale, and rice, cause rice). Thank goodness grass-fed organic meats are extremely nutrient dense. Problems arise when we feed animals GMO feed that is not their native diet that we in turn consume, in which the omega 3 to omega 6 ratios are thrown off and then we have a problem. We also give hormones and antibiotics to fatten up and prevent disease in these farm animals. By the time conventional grocery store meat is on our plate, it is so far from what we were meant to eat.

Despite the fallacy that red meat causes cancer, a 2011 meta-analysis of 34 studies published by the European Journal of Cancer Prevention found that a relationship between red meat consumption and colorectal cancer could not be supported.

So I will continue to eat my steaks! Also, I cooked the steak and lightly sautรฉed the kale in @kerrygoldusa #grassfed butter. Talk about nutrient density! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ #girlinhealing

Small haul at @bjswholesale yesterday, since we shop at a few different places. Here's what's in #AlexasCleanCart:

BJ's has awesome organic produce! I got bananas, raspberries & blueberries. @horizonorganic cheese sticks, @peteandgerrys organic eggs, and @applegate turkey! #girlinhealing

It is DOWNPOURING here today. I had an appointment and went to @wholefoodsnorthshore & @bjswholesale so I got soaked a few times. My appointment went well, I got back lentils (not so exciting) but didn't lose any foods and the conversations I have with my doc are out of this world. (He's an orthomolecular physicist, on the board of the American Academy for Environmental Medicine, and was advised by Linus Pauling. He has an answer to EVERYTHING I ever ask him! ๐Ÿค“) Later today I'm meeting up with a couple of local NTP girls to practice the functional evaluation since our midterm is quickly approaching.

Oh and this Peach Basil Smoothie is on the blog today! Link in profile. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘What's going on in everyone's day today? #girlinhealing

Eating all these fresh cherries & I have these cookies on my mind ๐Ÿ˜ Grain Free Cherry Amaretto Cookies from my blog! ๐Ÿ’ #girlinhealing

#AlexasCleanCart with just a handful of things! Probably going to @bjswholesale later on.

โ€ข Produce: organic heirloom tomatoes & organic red plums
โ€ข Dry: Original & nacho @sietefoods chips, organic nutmeg, the cleanest maraschino cherries I can find (has reg sugar but not HFCS or artificial dyes), & @kindsnacks bars for my sis
โ€ข Frozen: some convenient organic rice & quinoa with veggies
โ€ข Other: my fave sheep cheese & sushi for my sis

So this is what it's like to work from home? JK, I know it won't be *all* fun and games. But discovering the @ntatraining program was exactly what I was looking for. I have always wanted to work on my own schedule and work for myself. I've always had a business mind but I never realized what I could do with it. I cannot believe in a few short months I will be a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (and an AIP certified coach!) working with people from wherever bring health back into their lives. Pursing what I love- educating and supporting people in their health journeys plus my blog, coming into harmony with one in another is a dream come true for me. Feeling so very blessed for the circumstances in life bringing me down this path. If you're interested in working with me come the end of 2017 or start of 2018, send me a message and I'll make sure to let you know when we can get the ball rolling! #girlinhealing

This is pretty dang tasty.

2 beet green leaves, handful of frozen raspberries, a few slices frozen peaches, a chunk of avocado, regular & canned coconut milk #girlinhealing

Grilled steak tips, roasted veggies, organic @lotusfoods white rice cooked with a generous dollop of @fourthandheart ghee ๐Ÿ˜ Sweet summer you are going by too fast.
