I haven't done a single burpee, zero commandoes, not even one sit-up, nor ran a block. Haven't done any yoga or tai chi. I totally WISH I could do all of these things (although I did do my very first workout on Tuesday...a simple weighted 20 minutes of arms) but recovering from surgery has definitely taken me out of any hardcore fitness regimen. It's been 5 weeks since my accident and basically 5 weeks of zero physical activity.
My goal is to continue using nutrition as my way to stay lean during this time in my life. Losing muscle is inevitable. I'm completely bummed about that, but honestly, nothing I can do about it. However, what I eat, I certainly control. And for those who are curious about what I eat, I'll do a post tomorrow on that. Don't worry too much if you get sidelined from an illness or injury! If you keep your nutrition on point, you are still in the game!
PS....thanks for all the support on last night's post. Happy to report I slept from 10:00-1:30am...woke up to unwrap my leg because it was making it throb more, and fell back to sleep until 5:00am!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Chinese Chicken Cabbage Salad .
Morning ! ChihYu from IHEARTUMAMI.COM (@iheartumami.ny). Chicken cabbage salad is perfect for the coming warmer summer days. I paired it w/ homemade sesame ginger vinaigrette. If you are choosing b/t chicken breasts or thighs, definitely go with boneless/skinless chicken thighs. It will add so much more flavor to the salad!

Today the lovely @prettypoutlips made this salad for us. Here are her words: "Italian food is my favorite so I made a Caprese salad today! The taste is in the details, fresh produce purchased the day of and using authentic ingredients (Italian pasta, pesto, and balsamic vinegar). "
You really can taste the difference with fresh produce. She even made a balsamic vinegar reduction which was so tasty. Yum! .

The white flag has been waved! HOLY CRAP! WOW! I just had one of the most inspiring, delicious and creative meals I have had not only in Nashville but EVER. @lttleoctopus in the Gulch has transformed what it means to dine in this city. Every dish we had was perfectly balanced and excited my tongue with brand new textures and flavor combinations. As a chef I nodded my head, took deep breaths in between each bite and quietly made mental notes. Then I started toย ย wiggle in my seat with delight, screaming at the kitchen โ€œTHIS FOOD IS SO IMPORTANT YOU GUYS!โ€ (thanks @ruthielindsey for starting that) If you are in Nashville or come here to visit this is the NEW spot you must try.

๐Ÿฅ‘Tree Salad // As kids we used to call broccoli trees. I used to love to bite the tops off but I wasn't a huge fan of the bottoms because they were "boring" well how do you make them less boring? Slice them thin and they look like puzzle pieces! A fun salad that is full of heart chakra healing colors (green and pink) topped with a squeeze of lemon and some zest. Easy, delicious meal! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’—
1 head of broccoli, separate florets from stem
1 lemon, zest and juice
1/2 avocado
1 watermelon radish

Thinly slice radish and place on plate. Next thinly slice broccoli stem and place on radish. Break up florets into small pieces and pile on top. Next thinly slice avocado and add to salad (you can get as fancy as you like)!too with a big squeeze of lemon juice and a touch of zest. Salt, pepper, and EVOO optional. Also great topped with nutritional yeast or a touch of pecorino ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผโœจ

I tried a HIIT workout yesterday for the first time and it was amazing. I was so sweaty after but it felt great to just push myself. After workout fuel was these bad boys @sietefoods tortillas, organic grass fed lamb, @betterbeanco chipotle beans, and lots of organic kale, spinach, red pepper, and zucchini sautรฉed in homemade ghee, pink salt, cumin, and paprika. Plus 1/2 an avo hiding under all of that. Literally took 10 minutes to make and was delicious.

I was an incredibly healthy person until I had my 4th kiddo. โœจ
Hypothyroid, gluten intolerance, polycystic ovarian syndrome, depression, and anxiety did not make being a mama to four easy! โœจ
I went the conventional, medicated route for a time (something I truly feel is vital in some scenarios) but didn't want to keep it up long term. โœจ
That spurred me into my dedicated Whole30, clean eating, essential oil toting, natural mama living. I cannot imagine waking up without applying Progessence to my thyroid and forearms. Or living without my sparkling Ningxia antioxidant boost (no caffeine!!) at 5am. Or my lavender and cedarwood evening diffusing. Or rubbing down with Stress Away at meltdown hour. Oils have changed my life!! โœจ
If you have ever considered ditching conventional and swapping to natural, I'd love to chat. Seriously, any time. โœจ
Natural healing through foods and plants will always be my fav! .
