Warm up to easy dinners like this cozy PENNE ALLA VODKA🍝🍅🥦 Made with REAL ingredients like organic tomato purée, soaked cashews, garlic, olive oil, tamari, onions and a little splash of vodka, the sauce is DELISH!✌🏻💥feeling extra? top it with crispy pancetta & green onions! You will love!❤️ Grab the recipe deets below👇🏼👇🏼
1 lb of penne pasta * I love red lentil-based, brown rice and spelt varieties.
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon of red chilli flakes 🌶
1 white onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of Tamari sauce
1 (14 ounce) can of organic tomato purée (you could also use 1 cup of your favorite marinara sauce 🥫)
3/4 cup of vodka
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 🥄
parmiagiano-reggiano or nutritional yeast for serving (if vegan, or dairy-free)
crispy pan-fried pancetta or freshly chopped green onions as a topping 💯
*You’ll need a food processor or high-speed blender for the sauce! 😉
Cashew “Cream Sauce” 👌🏼🍝
1 + 2/3 cups raw cashews soaked for at least ~4 hours)
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt 🧂
3 large cloves of garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast 🧀
1 + 1/4 cup water or bone broth
Follow cooking instructions on the pasta package. I like to drizzle olive oil to the pasta after draining the water and then toss it, keeps it from sticking together. In your food processor, throw in all the cashew cream sauce ingredients and process until smooth. If you feel it’s too thick, add a pinch more water or broth and then blend again. Set the cashew cream aside. In a skillet or large sauce pan, warm up the extra virgin olive oil. Add the onions and allow them to soften up a bit. Add the tamari sauce, stir well, then throw in the tomato puree, followed by the vodka (always do this last). Mix well. **If your stove has an open-flame, always remove the pan from the stove while pouring in the vodka.** 😅Cook and reduce (some of the vodka will evaporate) for ~3 mins. Turn the heat to the lowest setting, then slowly add some cooked pasta and cashew cream sauce to the pan and give it a good toss until well-coated. #vegetarianfood#pastalove
Enjoy it with a glass of vino! 🍷! x
Guess what, changing your life is NOT easy. If you want to get fitter, stronger and more confident, you're going to need to put in the work. 💪
That's why it's so important to have a fitness routine that works for YOU. This is the reason I designed my #BBGProgram , to help women all around the world find what works for them!! 😍 My workouts are only 28 minutes and can be done at home, or at the gym. YES, you're going to work hard but you're also going to love it. 💛 It's going to be worth it, I promise.

Post-workout lunch before class is baked chicken and @birdseyevegetables Quinoa & Spinach Superfood Blend! 🏃🏽♀️I’m a huge fan of meal prep, but sometimes it’s easier to prep proteins/veggies and keep some of these frozen grain meals in the freezer for when i’m in a rush! Since i’ve been working really hard in the gym and on my runs lately, i‘ve also been focusing on eating super clean so that i can perform my best! Meals like this have been my go-to, because they are easy to make and so good 🙌🏻 I’ve been eating this bowl on repeat this week- the flavors and spices in the quinoa are just 😛 #linkinbio#Sponsored#BirdsEyeVegetables#VeggiesGetVersatile

Salmon Saturday got me craving this super satisfying plate of grilled, LEMONY WILD SALMON, AVO, & BROWN RICE FUSILLI w/ Garlicky Green Beans! 👆🏻👆🏻No real surprises here, just lots of easy + real food! 💁🏻♀️ #saladlove#salmonlove .
It’s honestly how I like/aim to eat: my trusty trifecta mix of protein, healthy fats & carbs🍝 also, here’s a tip that always works for me: mix in zoodles or veg with your pasta and you’ll up ⬆️ your daily greens pretty effortlessly!👌🏻😉 i also like to mix in: asparagus, zucchini, spinach, or broccoli.
Hope you're having a great evening, friends!👋🏻✨xx
Haha no I'm not pregnant again!! But for the ladies who are, this is an example of how you can modify a #BBG workout to suit you while you're pregnant or new to fitness. I recorded this when I was 35 weeks pregnant with Arna!
✅ Modified Burpee (Knees) - 10 reps
✅ Modified X Jump - 12 reps (6 per side)
✅ Squat Thruster - 10 reps
✅ Bent-Over Row (Neutral Grip) - 12 reps
✅ Side to Front Raise - 10 reps
✅ Bicep Curl (Neutral Grip) - 12 reps
Complete 2 Laps with 1 min rest between laps.
Go at your own pace for this one!! It's so important to listen to your body and learn to recognise the difference between PUSHING yourself and OVER EXERTING yourself. 💛 And ALWAYS check with your healthcare professional if you want to exercise while pregnant.
Week ✌🏻Day 6️⃣✔️
Surprisingly, the goblet reverse lunges were not the struggle that I had dreaded tonight! But those push-ups sure made up for it tho 😫😳🥴...
Recurring battle with food again today. Struggling to break old habits and balance the good with the bad; but smashing these workouts does give me hope that I’ll get there with food too! Tomorrow is a new day. Let’s do it! 💪🏻👊🏻💥

When @p.e.nation is on sale, you just have to add to cart! I got this super cute sports bra from @netaporter for $72 (still not cheap lol, but original was $100+). 🤷🏻♀️
There are times where we describe our day as a ‘bad day’. One thing ticked us off, and now the whole day is a bad day. But really, was it a bad day? Or just an aspect of it that we let it drive the rest of our day? Why can’t we take the good part of the day and let that be what sets the tone for describing our day? Perhaps we can be a little over dramatic sometimes (totally guilty here!). The same thing goes for a workout and fitness. Today I finished the ab burn, active rehabilitation and met my #hydration goals with 104 oz of #waterintake . However, I was nowhere near my #step goal of 15k steps. Should I call this a bad workout day? Or one that just wasn’t perfect but overall good? . .
Creating long term #healthyhabits and fitness is about progress, not perfection. Always celebrate your wins, and when things are less than perfect LET IT GO. Tomorrow is another day to start over. .
Sometimes people forget how important Collagen is to the human body. “Without it we would be a sack of nothing” said Dr. Kevin Eliceiri from the Univeristy of Wisconsin.
Did you know Collagen makes up about 3/4 of the dry weight of your skin. 3 QUARTERS!
But there is one downside to this amazing protein - it starts to degrade when you reach your late 30’s.
Your body produces less collagen as you grow older, and aging damages collagen fibers so they lose thickness and strength. After 40, your body produces significantly less collagen. The repercussions of decreased collagen production, include wrinkles, less-supple skin, stiff joints, and losing elasticity in your tendons and ligaments.
You can’t turn back the clock, but you have plenty of power to optimize collagen levels.
One of those ways is to start taking an ingestible Collagen Protein.
Taking Organisource Grass-Fed hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides is one of the easiest ways to start replenishing Collagen every day.
You can plop a scoop in your morning coffee every morning and you’ll be well on your way to increased production of one of (if not THE) most important proteins in your body.
There’s no better time than now to start replenishing your Collagen. Head over to Organisource.com to learn more and grab a bottle today!
Ughhhh. I missed the last half of my workouts this week. Sick and under the weather and my body needs time to heal...so I had to put a timeout on the sweat challenge. The good news is that I’m starting to feel a little bit better and should be able to workout tomorrow! The flu this year is NO JOKE. Can’t wait to get back in the swing of things tomorrow. But pretty sure this is gonna be me in the morning... #bbgbeginner#bbg#sweatchallenge#sweatchallenge2020#sick#ihatetheflu#kaylaitsines

Day 25/66 #gymshark66 challenge
This week’s @gymshark challenge is to #stayactive66 each day with 30 mins of LISS. Hmm well I worked 12-14 hours each day this week to meet a Friday deadline so I didn’t do much but sleep, eat, work, and repeat. But I take the bus to work everyday so there’s some brisk walking in between and I usually take the stairs at the office - so that has got to count for something 😉
For today, my way of staying active was attend a @sweat workout meetup with @bbgwashdc at @lululemon. A tough workout but a good one! Also check out the freebies we got in our swag bag (pic #3 ) and what I won from the raffle giveaway (pic #4 ). Thank you to the #bbgwashdc organizers for the meetup and energetic workout, and the sponsors for the freebies!!! 😍🤩 (Thank you @moorebalanced for taking the photo with me so that I’m not just spelling out SW 😂!!)
. #bbgwashdc meets every month in the DC area so come out for the next one! (Or find a Sweat/BBG meetup near you.)
