Announcing @Eat_Collective 🍽, our passion project. Georgia and I want to expand the conversation about food culture, focusing on real people and real stories. What recipes invoke feelings of nostalgia and joy? What does the community want to learn from us as nutrition experts? What does a practical healthy lifestyle look to them? How do their life experiences shape their health philosophy? What are their concerns, challenges and questions about the current food climate? Eat Collective will feature these stories to take you outside of the Instagram bubble 💭Each week will be in a new neighborhood of Portland, eventually expanding to neighborhoods across the country and the 🌎 We want to find you and share your story!

I love that it's warm enough to grill out 💖 grilling fish today, at my moms taking full advantage of grilling up things for the next few days 😂👅 tilapia + olive oil + tomatoes + onion + old bay seasoning
Ditali Lisci with Prosciutto and Peas is a delicious one pot meal made with trio of best friends: peas, prosciutto, and pasta. 🏅The peas bring a little bit of protein and fiber that offsets the carbohydrates from the pasta. 😛 And the prosciutto adds a nice sharp savory flavor, which is enhanced with additional cheese, red pepper, and parsley.👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Grilled Asian Steak with Cilantro Basil Chimichurri! .
Made by the lovely Jen @carlsbadcravings
What you need:
2 1/2 - 4 lbs tri-tip roast
1 1/2 cups fresh cilantro leaves and stems, packed
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, packed
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 inch ginger, peeled, roughly chopped
4 green onions, roughly chopped
1 jalapeno deveined, seeds separated, roughly chopped
3 tbsp olive oils
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp fish sauce (or soy sauce)
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Asian Steak Marinade:
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp Asian sweet chili sauce
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp Asian Chimichurri
How you make it:
Pulse the cilantro, basil, mint, garlic, ginger, green onions, and jalapeno (without seeds) in food processor until coarsely chopped, pushing sides down as needed. Add olive oil, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, toasted sesame oil and salt and pepper and continue to pulse until finely chopped and well combined. Taste and add desired amount of jalapeno seeds for additional heat (optional). Remove 2 tablespoons Chimichurri to a large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate the remainder separately.
To the Chimichurri in the plastic bag, whisk in all of the Asian Steak Marinade ingredients. Pierce steak all over with a fork and add to marinade. Massage marinade into steak and seal bag. Refrigerate 5 hours up to overnight, turning bag occasionally.
When ready to grill, remove Chimichurri and steak from refrigerator to bring to room temperature (about 30-45 minutes). Grease and preheat grill to 400 degrees F. Sear roast for 3-5 minutes per side, cover, and turn heat down to 350 degrees F. Grill for 15 minutes, flip, cover, and cook an additional 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of your steak cut and how well done you want your steak. Watch closely that your temperature stays around 350 degrees F.
Remove steak from grill and let rest 10 minutes before slicing thinly.
Little ole' me spent the morning on a virtual coffee hour with some of the top coaches in Beachbody. Ladies I look up to each and every day -- and I got to absorb their wisdom first hand. The community surrounding this business fills my heart every day. Women empowering women. Propping each other up.
We all have the same goals ---> help ourselves help others. I've learned I never have competition, only resources. Am I anywhere close to where most of them are? Nope! But I refuse to wait until I reach my goal before I'm proud of myself. I'm proud of myself for where I am and every step I've taken to move me closer to my goals. #beautymeetsbeast
#WellnessWednesday -- Nutrition Tip! 🥗I love eating a crisp salad for lunch during the summer. Lettuce is good, but spinach is even better. It’s a green superfood packed with nutrients, such as niacin, zinc, protein, fiber, vitamins C, A, E, B6, calcium, thiamin, folate, iron, magnesium, potassium, and more. So add a handful to your salad or smoothie and enjoy! #stepitupwithsteph
Did you know Shakeology has over 70 superfoods and that it is WAY more than a protein shake? It's full of vitamins, fiber, digestive enzymes and It can help with things like digestion (probiotics and prebiotics 🙌🏽), energy, cravings, weight loss and so on! I have personally seen improvements in my skin and hair on top of the above mentioned.
To say I love my shakes would be an understatement. It's the easiest and most nutritionally dense meal of the day by far. 😋 And maybe the tastiest too.
Did you also know that there is a 30 day EMPTY BAG guarantee on Shakeology? So if you get it and it just doesn't work for you for whatever reason, you can send it back and get a full refund even if the bag is empty! 😳 🎊
