✖️ Depression doesn’t feel the same for all of us. ☝️
Some people get tired and experience sadness, while others consult their doctors for aches and pains and don’t know that a depressive episode is near. 🤷‍♀️
Often there is physical symptoms that come along with depression and anxiety.
Why? Because your body and mind are intricately linked, and I’m not talking about a physical “serotonin deficiency”.
Some women experience migraines, digestive problems, joint pains, or problems with their monthly cycle.
These are some of the warning signs that come along with depression and anxiety.
Almost a chicken vs egg situation, which needs to be addressed on both sides regardless.
Our bodies are calling out to us, saying, “Hey, STOP, there’s something not right here!” .
Now the question is, WHEN will you stop and address your body & mind?
The HOW will be there when you’re ready. 😉

We are back to clean eating...the kiddos too! .
I know most people might struggle and say why would you do that to your kiddos, but this journey of clean eating began with our daughter Paige at age 4. We were constantly at the doctors ...literally they knew us by name even at the after hours clinic. A new medication each week for severe sinus infections, adenoids removed, tubes in ears, and blood draws that should zero allergies...and yet she was sick all the time.
Along came Arbonne 30 days to healthy living and I lost over 30 lbs in weight and she came off all medication. She is 8 now!!! .
What we eat does matter! .
Don’t get me wrong, life happens and we can spiral back into old habits...I did! But what is so amazing to me is I don’t have to search to know what will work. Are bodies are meant to heal themselves...God made sure of it.
And so as summer ends we are all detoxing and all eating clean. And it tastes good too!!! .
French toast with one egg fried in coconut oil, maple syrup, beets, and watermelon. 😋

I’ve had to learn this over the years. When I was younger, I thought that I could eat whatever I wanted and just exercise or take a vitamin and I would be fine. 😂. I was so naive. I’m certainly not discounting the value of supplements but counting on them alone without a proper diet isn’t the quickest way to health. Think of your body as a car. A car needs gas to fuel it right? Well our bodies need the right kind of fuel to be healthy. A once daily vitamin can’t possibly have all of the phytonutrients, fiber, and flavor that a healthy diet gives you.

Don’t make veggies an afterthought!
After spending a week at summer camp, my eyes have been opened as to what others are eating, and the lack of green and veggies. 🌿
In a healthy, depression-busting diet veggies & high quality protein stand in the foreground.
Getting your carbs from low glycemic sources like chickpeas and beans (here I used sprouted beans) will keep your blood sugar at bay while still providing with the necessary mental health nutrition.
Eat your colours so you get to shine bright! ☀️

Cooked all these in the oven yesterday while I was doing other food prep for the week. I threw them in the freezer and reheated with my eggs this morning.

My hubs decided to jump on the #whole30 train with me! Finally, 5 years later! 😆 Officially Day 1, let's get this party started! #whole30day1#whole30#iamwhole30#breakfast##whole30alumni#celiac#healyourbodywithfood

Bonus in this pic of my Gluten-free almond butter granola: my dad’s Corona bag lurking in the background! 😂 I use this with frozen berries as a topping for my breakfast treat: organic Greek yogurt. As I’ve said before, with my PCOS I keep dairy as a rare treat, and I try to get the best quality stuff I can manage. It’s usually expensive, so it definitely keeps me on track. What’s your “treat” as you try to manage your PCOS? 😂🍓. #healyourbodywithfood #balance #hormoneimbalance #lifestylechange #healthylifestyle #pcosfighter #glutenfree #holisticeating #nutritioncoach #blueberries #granola #breakfast #yum

My monthly wellness box arrived yesterday 💃🏼⁣

Not only did I earn free product on this order but I also earned 20% back in points to use in the future. It’s as simple as switching my Target budget over to my Young Living budget. On top of all that, I know that these products aren’t harming my body and messing with my hormones (I don’t need any extra help with that). What’s not to love! #saynotoendocrinedisruptors

Besides Endoflex - which I’ve already changed the top out on, I’m really excited to try the charcoal bar soap. If you’ve already tried it, let me know what you think!⁣

*the oils in the bottom right row were all FREE

Repost from @nutrisensenutrition using @RepostRegramApp - Sugar is toxic to your brain! So get rid of it and find some tasty alternatives! To satisfy my sweet tooth, I add fruit and tangy homemade salad dressing to salad greens! A little salty, a little sweet and 💯% healthy for my 🧠. And guess what?!?! When you eat less sugar, you crave less sugar! #brokenbrain #brainhealth #healyourbodywithfood #functionalnutrition #functionalmedicine #nourishtoflourish #veggiesrock #loveyourbrain #nutrisensenutrition #nutritionheals @instituteforfxmed

Not every pancake flips perfectly! But it didn’t change the taste of this keto pancake. The recipe from @drjoshaxe has held up with me and my kids for 3 rounds! I add a bit of vanilla and blueberries to the pancake mix too. The kids still insist on chocolate chips..... Summer is busy weekends outside and at the lake, so I’m thankful for a recipe that allows me to just cook without thinking about it.

Especially for vegans, the food pyramid is helpful by providing an overview of all food groups and serving sizes to ensure you get all your nutrients. There are many food pyramid templates out there.

To create a vegan food pyramid for weight loss simply increase vegetable, fruit, and plant based protein intake and decrease grains. Focus on whole foods as the fat source and leave out sugar (compared to the normal vegan food pyramid). This will ensure you have a calorie deficit but still get good nutrition (vitamins, mineral, protein). Here is exactly what to eat from the vegan weight loss pyramid
5 cups vegetables: Including at least 1 cup leafy greens and 1/2 cup cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower,...)
3 1/2 cups fruits: That includes at least 1/2 cup berries
2 cups legumes: This includes all beans, lentils, chickpeas, and hummus
2 cups cooked grains: Make sure they are whole grains (nothing processed) like rice, oats, quinoa. The occasional whole wheat pasta should be fine (no bread).
1.5 oz (or 3 T) nuts and seeds: Including 1 T flax seed
1.5 cups non dairy milk: Like almond or soy milk. Make sure it is unsweetened and you can use it with your oats or in smoothies.
