(Blissful Basil takeover, 4/5) Today’s afternoon snack: a green smoothie so vibrant it glows...almost. I spent this afternoon chipping away on photo edits, replied to blog comments, and did a quick “brain dump” of new recipe ideas. Then, I finished out the workday with a second email sweep. Since I didn’t have a chance to squeeze in a workout this morning, I stopped working around 5pm and fit in a 30-minute workout. Exercise is something I look forward to, because it keeps my mind energized, optimistic, and free from worry. I work out 4–6 times a week, and although strong, toned muscles are an added perk, it’s the feel-good vibes and mood boost that keep me coming back. Of course, post-workout smoothies like this one certainly don’t hurt either!
To make this smoothie: Add 2 small frozen bananas, 1–1 1/2 cups filtered water, 1/2 small green apple (cored and seeded), 2 handfuls baby spinach, 1–2 tablespoons pumpkin seed protein powder (or other plant-based protein), and 1 small knob of fresh ginger (peeled and roughly chopped) into a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth, pour into a glass, and top with a small handful of pomegranate seeds and coconut flakes. — @blissfulbasil // Repost: @ohsheglows // @healthyeatingteam

😮🎂 It's less than a month to my 30th so I'm trying to really focus on my diet 100% until then... so sticking with all the foods I know work best for me, and high protein & fats and low carb. Low carb works well for my body, but definitely isn't a long term thing!
➡️ Meals this week are:
🍓 Strawberry protein shake (@ehplabs_ausnz Oxywhey in Strawberry Milkshake is seriously the best damn flavour protein ever... Thanks @anjuli_fitforlife for getting me hooked!)
🍵Eggs + almonds + green tea

So excited to be done with next weeks dinners. Today @claireschembri and I made 8 meals together for our families. Enjoying our weekly meal preps.. tuned into girl time. Also enjoying not having to slave over making dinner each night too. Thanks to the instant pot I heat up these freezer make ahead meals in usually 30 min or less 🙌🏼!! #Instantpot#cubanfood#makeahead#homecooking#paleofriendly#cleaneating#familydinner
Let’s talk HERBS 🌱
We love sprinkling chopped cilantro as garnish for our client’s meals!
Cilantro’s benefits: - high in Vitamin A, K, E and C
- good source of fiber, calcium, potassium and magnesium
- regulates blood pressure
- removes toxic heavy metals from the body
- high in iron, which prevents anemia
- rich in phytonutrients and flavonoids
- lowers anxiety and blood sugar levels
Add more of them into your diet! Your body will thank you 💪🏽🍃💚 do you like herbs? 👀
Meal planning and prepping doesn’t have to be difficult or disgusting or depriving. It can definitely be DELICIOUS. And this dinner from a new meal plan I’m using is sooooooo good. It also called for olives, but I don’t like ‘em...so I just didn’t add them.
I was hesitant about prepping meals when I first started dialing in my nutrition. I’m still learning a lot and I’m horrible at planning and prepping most weeks...but it is soooo much easier to stay on track with my eating when I don’t have junk in the house and have healthy foods prepped and ready to go!
Now to just resist the fundraiser cookie dough in my freezer. It IS pre-portioned. Does that technically make it part of my meal prep??? 🤷🏼♀️🤔
Now there’s a backstory to tonight’s #prettydinner ‼️ Sitting at lunch today with @_lucky_777 and we were going back/forth on how I could bake egg whites in a muffin tin with a meatball in the middle 🙄
So - I came home and baked egg whites (mixed with cut up sweet potatoes, kale and salt-free seasoning) in a muffin tin with a #gardein meatless meatball in the middle 🙌
Swipe ⬅️➡️ to see the “meat cupcakes” (as my 10 yr old called them) straight out of the oven 😋
Great ideas come from great minds 🙃
TRY NEW THINGS!!! #nomnomnom
Meals through Tuesday!
Same prep as last week because I had extra low sodium taco seasoning, black beans and corn. So all I had to pick up was ground turkey and almond milk.
I cut the rice from 1/2 cup to 1/3 but other than that its all the same. 😊
1/2 cup (3oz) ground turkey
1/3 cup jasmine rice
1/2 cup (4-5oz) organic black bean/ corn.
I don't mind eating the same meals everyday because it breaks my habit of eating for pleasure and turns it into eating for fuel.
I love food... Sometimes a little too much lol
This way I eat tasty food but don't over indulge and I refuel my body with healthier choices.
Tonight's dinner is one of our favorite one-pot wonders - one-pot burrito chicken & rice!!! ⠀
