If you send a nurse to the grocery store, she will return with a farm stand 👩🏼‍🌾 because she witnesses the horrendous effects of not taking care of yourself for a living ✌🏻#tastetherainbow #foodismedicine #teamnotapatient #whatnurseseat #nurselife #vegan #plantbased #fueledbyplants #rn #eatlikeyougivea

Joining in on @jennigirlyoga's chant for peace challenge, chanting "om shanti om" 108 times a day for a month. Om, being the resounding sound of the universe, and shanti, meaning peace; together meaning peace for me, peace for you, peace for everything and everyone. Perks of being an ICU Nurse, I witness first hand life and death every single day... and I have to say that life is TOO short, even the best lived ones, for hate, fear, emptiness, judgement. So I'm making space. Space for you. Space for me to be free. To love. To know peace. Let's change the world with our voice in unity 🙏🏼✨ .

Yoga, perfect green smoothie, repeat ✅My health secret is that I've been doing the same thing for the last five years: eating plants & practicing yoga. That's it! Find something that makes you feel alive & keep doing it 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼#nurturingwarrior #teamnotapatient #healthyfood #healthy #healthcoach #foodismedicine #veganmealprep #vegan #vegetarian #plantbased #plantpower #nurselife #nurse #rn #icunurse #whatnurseseat #nurses #fitnurse #nutrition #wellness #fitness #yogaeverydamnday #organic #realfood #smoothie #greensmoothie #hearthealth #selflove #essentialoils #goodvibes

Kimchi & kale cauliflower fried rice with baked crispy tofu for my work lunches the next two nights 👅 30 mins of time for the ease of not searching high and low in the cafeteria for healthy food 👌🏼

This Monday Mantra is simple & inspired by one of the most powerful yoga classes I took since I've been home. It felt like the universe was speaking just to me as everything I know rapidly changed. Suddenly being catapulted into the next adventure & sorting out all the, for lack of words, bullshit. Even in spite of such, a different person blossomed... one of peace, strength & compassion. I think those words already described me, but they surprised me in chaos... that I was still gentle & loving. I assure you the universe has been there every step of the way ensuring that I truly do know my gifts. Everything that is meant to find you does... even the trials. Maybe especially the trials. All of the heavy things you need to let go of to live your best life. It's okay to hurt, but know that you can survive & perhaps even find yet still a better version of yourself. Even if you have to tell yourself a thousand times a day "I can"... I promise you... you can. Love is now & was always the way. Please never lose sight out of that because the world needs your heart 🙏🏼❤️✨

One last salute to the ocean before I head back to the desert. Feeling super grounded, restored & ready to revisit my regular life with a renewed perspective! So grateful for this opportunity to experience Pura Vida with some of the most amazing yogis guided by @jennigirlyoga... It was such an honor to practice amidst you @itjamies @chantenamaste @rtweeks @jax2u @colleensternberger 🙏🏼 Sending you love on your journeys home ❤️
.
If you've been following my Chakra talk, this week I'll be focusing on Svadhisthana, the Sacral Chakra... home of our creativity, self-worth, and sensuality. Hip openers, like Warrior II, Reverse Warrior, Pigeon, Bound Angle, etc. are great for opening up this Chakra! .

Could there be a better place on Earth to ground yourself? Probably not. Enjoying the crashing sounds of ocean waves, echoed by my breath. The power of right here, right now is truly amazing 🙏🏼 Grateful for this opportunity to practice yoga, meditation, & mindfulness amidst Mother Nature's perfection. You can live your dreams too, if you choose to take the leap ✨ If this is the message you need to live the life you want... take it as a sign

Pura Vida ✌🏻

Chakras are an energy system that help us develop a holistic well-rounded approach to health. The chakras begin at the base of the spine moving up through the crown of the head. Each Chakra is associated with an aspect of our physical, emotional, mental or spiritual health; in culmination, they promote a sense of well being. However, when certain aspects of these are out of whack... we feel tired, anxious, depressed, fearful or find ourselves In other states of DISease. Simply put, it is another way to break down the way we manage our health ✌🏻
.
Muladhara or the Root Chakra (red): located at the base of the tailbone; center for basic needs of survival, security, safety and subsequently the source of our fears; connected to Mother Earth and our ability to stay grounded
.
Svadhisthana or the Sacral Chakra (orange): located just below the navel; holds the needs for creativity, sexuality, self-worth and our ability to relate to others
.
Manipura or the Solar Plexus (yellow): located between the navel and sternum; home of personal power, the ego, our passions and impulses
.
Anahata or the Heart Chakra (green or pink): located behind the breast bone & between the shoulder blades; home of the ability to love ourselves and others, to give & receive love; connects our physical body with our higher chakras
.
Vishudha or the Throat Chakra (light blue): located in the V of the collarbone; home of expression, sound, and possibility for transformative healing
.
Ajna or the Third Eye Chakra (indigo): located between the two eyebrows; home of intuition, imagination, and spiritual sight; connects us to our higher self
.
Sahasrara or the Crown Chakra (violet): located at the top of the head; home of spirituality, enlightenment and energy
.
I'll be focusing in on the Root Chakra this week 🙏🏼✨

Back to work tonight! My schedule this week is wiggity whack 😜 but I'm making the best of it. A one and done tonight calls for a loaded @daveskillerbread Epic Everything bagel. It's piled high with spicy three pepper hummus, cucumber, bell pepper, heirloom tomato, red onion & spinach 👅👅👅 Can't wait to dig into this bad boy tonight 🙌🏼 No need to suffer through cafeteria food when you can make this in 5 minutes flat ❤️ #nurturingwarrior #teamnotapatient #healthyfood #healthy #healthcoach #mealprepping #foodismedicine #veganmealprep #vegan #vegetarian #plantbased #plantpower #nurselife #nurse #rn #icunurse #nicunurse #whatnurseseat #nurses #fitnurse #nutrition #wellness #fitness #organic #realfood #quick #bagel #hearthealth #selflove #hospitalfoodsucks

Adding on to my seated meditation... a basic flow that anyone can do to open up the third eye, or Ajna chakra. The third eye guides our intuition and trust in ourselves, by allowing us to move beyond the self into a place of wholeness with the divine. When we let the universe work through us, miracles do indeed happen
.
Begin by rolling Immortelle or Frankincense, in a circular motion on the space between your eyebrows, or home of the third eye. Take a cleansing inhale & exhale, in through the nose. Out through the mouth. Slowly move into a table top position pulling the heart through and gaze up during inhale and releasing the exhale into an arched cat pose. After a few rounds, move into a child's pose... reaching the third eye towards the ground. Knees may be close together or wide, whatever is most comfortable. Inhale & exhale slowly through the nose. Surrender. Find peace. Begin to trust yourself here in your release. Ask the universe for what you need to see. Bring your hands behind your head in prayer if this is comfortable for you. Slowly release when you are ready. Bring your hands to heart center. Thank yourself for connecting to this space of peace. Know that is always accessible to you
.
Namaste 🙏🏼✨ .

Happy Monday beautiful people! My weeks are a little bit different than most peoples... as my •Monday• is usually the first day of my four days off. It's easy after 3 days in a row of Nursing, to be super hard on myself.... to think about all the things I could have done better or beat myself up over minute details that no one else has even thought of except for me. Phew. It's a heavy burden and one that I've tried to distance myself from. To revel in the wonderful amazing Nurse that I am, but more important the human I am. In every role I play, I am enough. I love enough, give enough. Breathe enough. And the universe is a better place because I am me & you are you! I hope you find the space this week to pause for a moment in our continuous struggle to be better... to celebrate the fact that we are enough in every variation ❤️You bring peace and light to this world just by being you 🙏🏼 #nurturingwarrior #motivationmonday #mantra #mondaymantra #nurselife #rn #icunurse #nurse #fitnurse #health #healthy #wellness #healthylifestyle #fitness #intention #mindfulness #teamnotapatient #healthcoach #practicewhatyoupreach #yoganurse #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #namaste #energy #meditation #goodvibes #essentialoils #spiritual #selfcare #selflove

It's back to night shift tonight 🙌🏼🌙✨ if you can switch back and forth, I am envious... but it always leaves me feeling exhausted. Looking forward to no more orientation/education on days for awhile 🙇🏼‍♀️ It also means back to the absolute garbage options in the cafeteria 🤷🏼‍♀️ Meal prepped and ready to go for three twelves:
✨Chana Masala (curry chickpea) stuffed sweet potatoes; one with cauliflower & peas, the other with broccoli 🙏🏼 ✨Pesto spaghetti squash with bell pepper, zucchini, mushroom & onion ✨Hummus & Veg snackers ✨Cherries & blueberries
This was about speed because this cat needs a nap before work 😴

If I had to choose one essential oil for the rest of my life, it would be LAVENDER. Anyone that worked with me in the Adult ICU setting, knows my love for this "drug" 😉 I've used it with so many of my patients to help calm them down & let them forget for a few minutes that they're in a hospital bed. I get home from work & use it to calm my own nerves. It works friends. I could give you a long list of physical uses because it literally has so many beneficial properties... but for me, nothing will hold the candle to its ability to clear the mind & restore peace in a world of chaos 🙏🏼 It makes tuning in to the Jennie behind the Nurse... super easy & the best part of my day. I love you lavender! DM me if you need the hookup on the best lavender I've found 💁🏼 Check out my story for a discussion on why I think so ❤️ #nurturingwarrior #nurselife #rn #icunurse #nurse #fitnurse #health #healthy #healthylifestyle #intention #mindfulness #teamnotapatient #healthcoach #yoganurse #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #namaste #energy #meditation #goodvibes #essentialoils #doterra #spiritual #selfcare #lavender #stress #anxiety #holistic #vegan

The easiest way to stop stress in its tracks: breathing. Meditation used to seem like this abstract, unattainable thing. Until I started practicing yoga, where movement was guided with each inhale & exhale. Where breathing in & out through my nose created the sound of crashing ocean waves. And I was transported from all my problems to my happy place. Breathing is often over looked because well, we do it without thought. But when we're anxious or stressed out, we hold our breath unintentionally or breathe so shallow we aren't actually moving oxygen to our brains. When we return our mind to the conscious effort of breathing, it's amazing how quickly we can stop the negative mind chatter and return to our inner peace.
Try yogi breathing. Softly close your eyes. Inhale slowly through your nose, constricting the back of the throat to create sound. Filling your belly. Hold for a second at the top. Exhale slowly through your nose the same way, moving your belly towards the spine. Hold for a second at the bottom. It should sound like you're listening to the ocean. Repeat until you feel calm 🙏🏼 The best part is you can literally do this anywhere.... in a yoga practice OR at your desk outside of that patient's room you've been in q 5 mins OR in your bed with a lavender diffuser going before sleep. There's no wrong time to free your mind of worry. In any setting, I hope you find the peace within yourself ❤️ #nurturingwarrior #nurselife #rn #icunurse #nurse #fitnurse #health #healthy #healthylifestyle #intention #mindfulness #teamnotapatient #healthcoach #yoganurse #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #namaste #energy #meditation #goodvibes #essentialoils #doterra #spiritual #selfcare #selflove #pranayama #breathe #anxiety #stress #wellness

Tuning in begins with taking the TIME for yourself. Easier said than done for most people. Especially as a Nurse, we spend so much time cultivating compassion & energy for other people that we tend to be last on the list. Then, our mind, body and spirit is all out of whack... leaving space for burnout & fatigue & subsequently, negative emotions, anxiety & depression. When I see the statistics that ICU Nurses have PTSD rates similar to Veterans, it doesn't even phase me. Because I see it every day. I saw it in myself. So I created daily routines to help reduce all that negative juju ✨Flipping the script on everything that "happens" to me and being grateful for the good stuff. I start and end my day with what I call "the gratitude sandwhich". Wake up, list three things you're grateful for today. Bed time cup of calm plus #nurselife stress relief essential oil blend & three more things I'm grateful for 🙏🏼 #rn #icunurse #nurse #fitnurse #compassion #fatigue #anxiety #depression #burnout #health #healthy #wellness #healthylifestyle #fitness #intention #mindfulness #teamnotapatient #healthcoach #practicewhatyoupreach #gratitude #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #namaste #meditation #goodvibes #doterra #essentialoils #selfcare #selflove

I'm walking on sunshine today ☀️My first time having fresh jackfruit! Woah... I found a pre sliced chunk at Whole Foods yesterday & knew I had to give it a whirl ✨Trying new fruits & veggies makes prepping healthy food fun... especially when I'm feeling uninspired. To get moving this morning, I also used a whiff of lemon & a stress busting roller blend that was gifted to me. The best part of wearing oils is that anytime you need a reminder to just be... you can close your eyes, take a deep breath through your nose, pause for a moment, and let it all go. Relaxation response engaged 🙏🏼

This is the deep work friends. We do so many things out of habit. The things we say, the way we react, the food we eat, the way we move our bodies, the stories we tell ourselves about what we can and cannot do. What is habit? And what is aligned with your heart space? Which one are you living? The life you want is yours if you show up for it today... the health you want is yours. The time you want, the relationship you want is yours. It's all there. The conversation in our heads that doubts our strength, limits our success & speaks fear manifests into habits that diminish our true self. So let's get clear on our intentions & align our habits with those ✌🏻Walking the journey right alongside you. Best life is now. Making the conscious choice to live it. My tools are yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, and the study of energy 🙏🏼 #nurturingwarrior #motivationmonday #mantra #mondaymantra #nurselife #rn #icunurse #nicunurse #fitnurse #healthy #healthylifestyle #fitness #intention #mindfulness #teamnotapatient #healthcoach #practicewhatyoupreach #yoganurse #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #namaste #energy #meditation #goodvibes

Eating plant based meals doesn't have to be complicated. I quickly glanced through my fridge looking for taco ingredients... & threw together these roasted chickpea & sautéed kale tacos with a tahini dressing. 20 mins later, delicious & nutritious! I choose low or no sodium beans because I still eat out & know I get more than enough sodium in restaurants 💁🏼Additionally, in this recipe... lemon adds a lot of flavor that there is no salt required 😊Recipe visuals in my story^ ✨Drain & rinse one can of organic low sodium or no sodium chickpeas. Toss in paprika, cumin, cayenne, & garlic. Add lemon juice & a just enough olive oil to coat. Top with lemon slices. Bake at 375 until crispy (about 20 mins).
✨Chop up one shallot, add to sauté pan with a little bit of olive oil (or water if you're skipping oil) & allow to brown. Tear one head Dino kale (mine was very small and if I was sharing I would have used two heads) & add to pan. Squeeze the rest of the lemon juice over kale! Sauté till wilted. ✨ Add 1 tsp tahini, 1 tsp coconut vinegar (or ACV) plus water to the consistency of sauce you want in a tiny mason jar. Shake it to blend. ✨Halve heirloom grape tomatoes. ✨Toast @sietefoods cassava & chia tortillas in oven for a few seconds. Remove tortilla & chickpeas.
✨Assemble tacos 🌮

Starting to get the hang of meal prepping and not making excessively complicated meals. It really is an art that takes practice 🤷🏼‍♀️ The first time took me FOUR hours and I almost quit. Now I'm down to 2, which feels more manageable. I'm glad I persisted because every time my coworkers come back with some comfort food saying "ugh this tastes not as good as it looks"... I'm reminded how grateful I am that I took the time to learn how to prep delicious plant based meals for myself. Work days require little to no thought ✌🏻 I'm not going to lie after the crazy exhausting work week I had... that no thought was key. Being a nurse is exhausting mentally, physically & often emotionally as we balance the needs of patients in between life & death. I almost fell flat on my face into my bed walking into my home 2 out of 3 days this week. But now I'm going to relax & enjoy my days off with all the things I love ❤️ On the menu:
✨Quinoa stuffed bell peppers with tomato, onion, peas & corn eaten with a side of mixed greens
✨Spaghetti squash with mushrooms, bell peppers & onions with @hilaryseatwell Broccoli Bite "meatballs" & tomato sauce ✨Roasted veggies & sweet potato fries ✨Real FRUIT snacks this week: mixed berries & cherries & dates
