diving headfirst into friday like 🥥 🏄🏻‍♀️🍫
this choco coconut smoothie with layers of fluffy coconut yogurt (I used @anitasyogurt), frozen blueberries with shaved midnight @eatingevolved chocolate is all i ever want to start my weekends with. it’s got #nobanana in it for those who are sensitive (or just want to switch it up!) and its mostly veggies. raw cacao is a safe mood elevator and natural fatigue fighter to get us through the last few hours of the workweek!
to make:
1 cup steamed then frozen zucchini
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1 cup water or nut milk
1 serving chocolate protein powder
pinch of salt
blend on high in a high speed blender like a @vitamix for a few minutes or until extremely smooth.
heading to yoga in a few! wishing everyone a gorgeous friday. #leefromamerica

there... i said it. i f*cking love sweet potatoes so much and eat ‘em year round. my favorite way to eat them is in french fry form. i usually mix up the spices, but here’s my go-to recipe:
1. set oven to 375F.
2. wash + scrub your sweet potato. keep the skin on, extra nutrients and less work! chop your potato into fry like wedges, making sure they’re fairly even in thickness and size so they bake evenly.
3. lay them onto a baking tray, drizzle avocado oil over them and give them a nice shake so they’re evenly coated. top with salt and pepper to taste and a pinch of paprika. space them out evenly on the baking try so they have space to brown.
4. bake for 35 minutes or till golden brown, flippin once halfway through.
dip into guacamole, hummus, or add into a salad or even in a sandwich. there are endless ways to enjoy them. #leefromamerica

When I was in the depths of my PCOS, i silently struggled with hirsutism, also known as male pattern facial hair due to an excess of androgens in the female body. It was single-handedly the most isolating, shameful, and defeminizing aspect of my PCOS struggle.
Facial hair is something many women face in their lifetime, hormonal or not. it is so taboo that sometimes we don’t even feel comfortable enough telling our very best friend about it.
Today on the blog I share my personal experience with hirsutism and why i chose to get electrolysis, a form of permanent hair removal. i go over what to expect, pre+post skincare, how to select a good technician. i’ve been doing electrolysis for 2.5 years and have had my fair share of good and bad experiences.
I want to note that every person has the right to do choose what to do with their body hair. the point of this post is to not pressure people into hair removal, but to help remove the stigma and shed light onto this not-talked-about topic. Electrolysis helped boost my confidence and re-discover my feminity when everything else female seemed to be failing me (absent period, belly weight gain).
I hope this post helps women struggling with this issue to feel a little less alone. All love. #leefromamerica #PCOSawareness

just waiting for my netflix to load ❣️🛁 🕯 #leefromamerica #emmawatsontakesabatheveryday

got out of bed a few minutes early this morning to watch the sunrise from this little nook 🌞
i cut up some fresh ginger and a few wedges of lemon for french press tea.
i set out my journal and put my thoughts and dreams onto my paper (super cathartic for me, i journal every day). a feeling of serene calm washes over me. these are the moments that I live for.
we are all worthy of gifting ourself moments like this. simple, yet beyond effective. happy spring equinox, bb’s! 🌅🌱🌻#leefromamerica #LFAhome

my dream meal, over and over! 🌿🥑 i swear i could eat some rendition of this combination every day and not get sick of it (but i know it’s important to switch it up🙂)
bed of baby spinach, 1/2 an avocado, watermelon radishes, chunks of almond milk ricotta, smoked salmon bits and sesame seeds for crunch. all doused with lemon juice, olive oil, and nutritional yeast for flavor. wishing everyone a beautiful monday eve ✨ #leefromamerica

just a reminder that grief is not linear, there is no measurement on healing, and we cannot schedule our down days in our google calendars.
sometimes it hits you like a ton of bricks. and I can do all the things: journal, yoga, therapy, nature, but sometimes the emotions are still flowing through. all I have left to do is to just hold space for these not-so-pleasant feelings, so that they will wash away and a new day will come.
shoutout to all the other people also goin through something. Im right there with ya ❤️ #leefromamerica

roasted kabocha squash smoothie 🤤🍠
my favorite addition to the vegetable smoothie game, kabocha squash makes a seriously creamy smoothie base and is rich in vitamin A, C, and beta carotene. plus, its a complex carbohydrate for generating energy and healthy gut flora 💪🏻 I simply peeled the skin off, pitted the seeds, chopped the squash into 1” cubes, then drizzled with avocado oil, pink himalyan salt and a dash of cinnamon and roasted at 375F for 45 minutes. i wait for them to cool, then pop them in a freezer!
to make the smoothie:
1 cup previously roasted then frozen kabocha squash
1/2 cup steamed then frozen zucchini
1 knob peeled fresh ginger
1/2 tsp each of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom
2 TBSP almond butter
Pinch vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup filtered water
Optional: 1 serving vanilla protein powder
blend all ingredients in a @vitamix until smoothie. use the tamper if too thick or add more liquid. top with coconut flakes, almond butter + chia seeds! #bowlsbylee #leefromamerica

have you ever noticed the direct correlation between physical digestion and by the state of your emotions and mentality?
as somebody who has struggled with digestive issues and IBS for over 10 years, i can tell you ive tried every trick in the book. naturopaths, stool tests, self massage, acupuncture, eliminating inflammatory foods, all the low FODMAP diets, oils, teas, breathing, you name it. i’ve tried it. and while i am not bad-mouthing any of these remedies (i still do them and they are far better than many solutions) sometimes there is just nothing i can do, and i have to sit with bloat and IBS-C or IBS-D and be comfortable with it.
i spent so much of my life repressing this and stressing out over the fact that i was bloated and constipated, it was actually WORSENING my symptoms.
when i look back on the times of the best digestive health, it was when my emotional, mental health and nervous system were all in balance.
so no, im not giving up. i’m going to continue to eliminate foods that bloat me etc, but i’m also working to accept that this is a part of me, and it is not good nor bad, it just is. and i love it all. whoever said we need to have optimal digestion 24/7 anyways? that’s unrealistic and putting too much pressure on ourselves.
working on achieving not just physical but emotional and mental health is just as important. #leefromamerica

this sauce is the situation in life right now. 🔥
it takes 3 mins to whip up and you can drizzle it over steamed veggies, throw it on a taco, roll it into a burrito. similar to the spicy cashew cream sauce on my pizza last week, but i added a handful of fresh dill and BOOM, everything in the world makes sense again. it’s versatile AF and reminds me of all the delicious macrobowls i ate in Austin this week. 😋
this bowl is spinach with steamed kabocha squash, beet kraut, roast broccoli, avocado, micro radish, sliced watermelon radishes and my spicy dill cashew sauce. recipe below!
1/2 cup raw, unsalted cashews
juice of 1/4 lemon
1/4 cup fresh dill (cilantro or basilworks well too!)
1/2 tsp salt
1 clove garlic
2 pinches cayenne powder (or more if you like it hot 🔥)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water (more or less, depending on how thick you want it)
1. blend all ingredients in a high speed blender like a @vitamix (a food processor will not work) for 3 minutes on HIGH. you want this stuff ultra smooth.
2. store extras in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to 3 days. you may need to re-blend with more water as it will thicken up every time it sits in the fridge. #leefromamerica

nothing beats this breakfast 💪🏻
a few dollops of coconut yogurt (i use @thecoconutcult, but you can use any non dairy yogurt!) topped with almond butter, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, cashews, frozen blueberries, and hemp seeds. also tastes delectable with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top ✨
topped with a nut-free fat ball (recipe link in my bio in case you missed it) keeps me full and my blood sugar stable for hours ‘n hours ⏰
wishing everyone a joyful, beautiful thursday. #leefromamerica #bowlsbylee
