Any kombucha fans out there? I've had SUCCESS 👊🏼 After reading and reading through 4 different recipes, I stumbled across @getculturednz For $20 they sent me the stuff I needed and the info which made complete sense when I read it. Sitting here is my first batch and I love it! I think it's close to my favourite bought ones thoughmy daughters don't agree. Have another lot on the go and haven't added as much ginger and lemon this time. Hoping to win them over 😍 If anyone locally is keen to give this a go, reckon I'll have a scoby to give away in a few weeks. So let me know!
the last lunchboxes of my recent days... these r the very last lunchboxes u r going to see from me cos i left my job yesterday 🎊 ergo im not stressed with 30mins cooking in the morning before going to work anymore :D i think leaving my job also contributes to my mental & skin health so why not mentioning it 😝
im not remembering the ingredients 100% but im always eating kinda the same so it wont be very wrong haha
1. 🌾millet with blended cooked apple and dates + vanilla powder. rest of the apples on the top
🍚rice with lentils and broccoli
2. 🌾shit i dont even recognize that brekkie 😂 but it looks like my spelt semolina to me... cooked with rice milk with berries 😋 and i guess there r dates in it
🍚 rice with zucchini, capsicum and chickpeas
3. 🌾 millet with tigernuts & raspberries
🍚 rice with sweet corn and zucchini
🍚 milk rice cooked with rice milk, berries and cashew butter on the left upper corner 😋
🍚 rice with zucchini, capsicum, broccoli and tomatoes + sunflower seeds and parsley
5. and last lunchbox:
🌾 spelt flakes cooked with rice milk + vanilla powder, berries with tigernuts 🍚 rice with zucchini and sweet potatoes + parsley
what's rly not hard to realize is*
* omg she cooks a lot (yes sometimes bit annoying, but i enjoy cooked food very much! 🙃)
* she eats rice everyday (yes! 💛)
* she eats very simple (hell yes i love it 👅)
* she eats kinda always the same in general (cant complain, still love it 🤘) in my last mornings on my work days ive been pretty lazy and just took anything i had. rice was always the fastest grain to cook and i used canned chickpeas/lentils etc.
now as i am home im going to try out some new stuff and being more creative... so i hope i can give u some new ideas for ur healthy skin "diet" :)
also: my skin has been doing very good lately! i see my gut gets stronger and even an spicy indian meal last friday didnt mess me up #happyaf 😍 so i wanna include new food soon.... so look forward for some new food pics 😏
#doesthisfatasstextactuallyreadanyone ? 😂
Do me a favor. Go grab your current #probiotic , check out the ingredients and tell me if it has these 3 SPECIFIC enzymes: Chitosanase, Cellulase and Protease. The hard outer shell of yeast in our gut is comprised of Chitin, Cellulose and Protein. If your probiotic doesn’t contain ALL three, then it’s not going to get through the shell. If you have no idea what yeast overgrowth is doing to your body, message me! This is the ONLY probiotic that made me feel better. Period. #healthygut#loveyourguts#probio5

I would LOVE some Manbassadors to join me in this journey y'all! Bodybuilders, athletes, and fitness enthusiasts are catching on....Gut health is where it's at! I want to share Frank's story with You!
Frank Stone, shares his experience with Plexus: "Hey everyone, I wanted to share my journey with Plexus so far. First I've always thought of myself as being in good shape...I even took first place in a fitness competition! I started with the Plexus Slim and started seeing improvements in my energy levels and recovery periods right away (within the first week). I lost body fat and weight while keeping the muscle I was working hard to build. About a month or so later I added the Biocleanse and ProBio5 and have noticed my body has improved dramatically!
Over all I'm feeling great, have a slimmer waist, and have continued to add muscle as well! As an added bonus, after suffering for years with bumps on my face/body, I don't have to suffer with that now!! I'm 3 weeks into my preparation for my next competition and its so much easier this time around now that my digestive system is running at a better level. Can't wait to see what's next with Plexus!!!!" #gay#lesbian#lgbtq#PDX#mood#gay#healthygut#plexusistherealdeal#plexus#healthygut#tomboy#anxiety#plexus#healthygut#tomboy#anxiety#plexus#healthygut#tomboy#anxiety#plexus#motivation#blackwoman#healthygut#lesbian#dobetter
This is my friend Michelle. She is so inspiring and I love watching her journey with Plexus.
Michelle shares her Vulnerable Post:
Most people that know me know that I struggle with gaining weight. While many people may scoff at that and think "oh poor Michelle", this is a very serious struggle for me. Others inability to lose weight is how I view my personal weight challenges.
I eat incredibly healthy. I watch everything that goes in my body. However, I also eat A LOT! A normal day is well over 3,000kcal. Yes, I'm active. Yes, I workout. Yes, I have a high metabolism. But, the inability to gain weight is a sign of health, just as the inability to lose weight.
Not being the healthy (inside and out) person I strive so hard to be is a bit scary and hard to emotionally handle. With as much effort as I put into making sure I'm healthy, I should be a perfect human specimen! What would I be like if I didn't focus on it? I want to be around, healthy, living and thriving for my family. They are my everything.
Well, with that said. I'm beyond excited to announce I've been able to add a couple lbs to the scale the past 2 months. Guys, this is HUGE for me. I don't remember the last time the scale went up and I wasn't pregnant (that was even a struggle)!! Plexus' new products are for real. They're changing my game!
That girl in the picture is strong, fit and working her way back to a weight that is more comfortable. She can start wearing some clothes she's tossed to the back of her closet because she's self conscious of her bones sticking out. She's going places and her health is no longer going to hold her back! 👊🏼#guthealth#healthymom#healthygut#healthychoices#itsallaboutthegut
One of our newest products, Plexus VitalBiome, has been CLINICALLY PROVEN to work on anxiety and stress! 🙏🏼 👏🏻
But just how does it do that?
Here’s the answer, directly from the scientist’s mouth who created VitalBiome (and also had a hand in improving Plexus Slim):
“VitalBiome raises the levels of the 8 most beneficial strains of probiotics in your microbiome. The reformulated Slim will help those colonize and grow. VitalBiome is amazing when it comes to changing how you handle stress and how happy you are. The clinical research lab was blown away by the test results. They knew we were going to see big increases in the numbers but when you added in our Patent pending formula Plexus Slim, that’s what hit it out of the park.
Take VitalBiome once a day when you wake up on an empty stomach and then drink Slim 20-30m later or later on in the day.” 60 day MBG on all products!
Oh avocado how did you get to be the perfect food!
#truestory did you know that the avocado is the reason my husband feel in love with me. Seriously! It was that simple word that had him hooked forever.
We were sitting in a sushi place on Ventura blvd in Woodland Hills CA and he asked me what my favorite food was. And I answered. Avocado!🥑
His mouth dropped open and he stared at me in disbelief. Then quietly muttered. Mine too no one has ever said that!
Haha it is crazy but yes it's true. He fell in love with me right then and there all because I said avocado! 🥑🥑🥑🥑 so yes it is the perfect food for me 😉❤️
Mi nueva selección de chocolate. Con cuál empiezo?? 🤔
(Visit my blog #linkinbio and search for chocolate; you can read my article explaining the amazing health benefits of dark chocolate and a few that I recommend!)
Guys- the girl on the left WAS working out.
She would spend 2-3 hours at the gym, eat relatively healthy- only to get discouraged, overwhelmed, and felt if others saw her trying- they would also see her fail. ••
So why try? Why be vulnerable? Why put in the effort, when it may not pay off?
There is SO MUCH wrong with that perspective.
It wasn't until I reached out to a girl on IG- did my life change. ••
I didn't realize how bad it had gotten, how horrible I felt, how I was treating myself.
Working out and eating healthy doesn't HAVE to be hard, but we make it that way. Finding a fit family to keep me accountable and make sure I got back up when I fell off track was a GAME CHANGER for me. ••
THIS is why I run my virtual Bootcamps- because i KNOW they work.
They work- if YOU work.
So what are you waiting for? All are welcome- we start prep week next Monday!! Send me a message! Or email 💌email@example.com
*must live in the US or Canada, and not be working with a coach ❤️❤️
The first time I ever tried kimchi was at this random Korean market on lakeshore in Etobicoke (a lady gave it to me for free too lol) and I thought it was the weirdest thing ever. But here I am a few months later buying it 😅 I've been having a little with my lunch + dinner everyday!
Kimchi is fermented vegetables, usually cabbage, onion and carrot, that originates from Korea (similar to sauerkraut). It has many benefits such as high fiber content, rich in essential amino acids, contains vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, vitamin C, B vitamins, iron, calcium and selenium. One of the main reasons I wanted to start eating it is for it's natural probiotics. During the fermentation process it creates healthy bacteria (lactobacillis) which helps improve digestion. I take probiotics in capsule form most of the time but it can get expensive and it's nice to get some from a variety of sources. It's also known to help lower cholesterol, decrease inflammation and boost immune system from its antioxidant properties. Plus if you love spice then you'll love this - it's got great flavour 🌶👌 #eatrealfood#probiotics#kimchi

Came home from work.. and kept.. working? WHAT?! •
My incredible and amazing mentor just shared her income progression over the last 4 years- and I can't even explain how motivated it makes me- but I'm going to try 😍💃🏼
I started this journey, to work on myself. •
But what happened, was something incredible. I found an opportunity- to have financial freedom. I am working HARD to achieve this- and it's started slow, but this is REAL.
It's gone from:
✔️Filling my gas tank.
✔️Buying some groceries.
✔️Covering my Wrangler payments.
✔️To now being enough to cover my 7 student loan payments 🙄🙄 •
I have some hefty goals for 2017- but I KNOW I can be in control of my career and my future- I am my own CEO.
I will be hosting an amazing sneak peek into our lives of fitness coaching THIS WEEKEND- while away on a retreat that I EARNED- with 10 other amazing ladies 😍 •
Comment below or shoot me an email to reserve your spot! (Totally from the comfort of your own home 👇🏼👇🏼)

I've been taking these for about two weeks, while I've been traveling, and they are a total game changer. Essentialzyme-4 are formulated to aid in the digestion of dietary fats, proteins, fiber, and carbohydrates, which is essential when your diet is less than perfect or you're eating out a lot. They also have time release technology, so plant and animal based enzymes are released separately within the digestive tract to allow for optimal nutrient absorption. Unless your diet is spot on all the time, you totally need to give these a try. Your digestive system will thank you!
