  • Dip it low! 😋 Team gaucamole vs. team hummus vs. team pesto - which dip is your fav? 😍 (Swipe for the pesto info and recipes for each dip) by @meowmeix
.
These are all perfect for last minute Easter appetizer or a side dish ✨
.
When I can, I opt for making these types of dips at home. Many of the store-bought brands use low quality vegetable/canola oils in their recipes and I much prefer having the ability to use a much higher quality, healthy oil like olive oil in my recipes. Of course, it’s not always possible to make the homemade ones, so make sure to check the ingredients when picking out a brand and go with the ones with less additives! 👌
.
More info below and special thanks to my friend @corylrodriguez for inspiring this post:
.
Highlights of gauc: The star of guacamole is avocado 🥑 . Avocados are high in fiber and have a good amount of vitamin K, Folate, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B5, B6 & E.
.
Highlights of hummus: 😍Chickpeas are also a good source of fiber and contain a range of vitamins & minerals like folate, manganese, and smaller amounts of iron, phosphorus, & copper. Note: I didn’t use tahini in my hummus recipe because I like less ingredients but definitely try any of the great tahini hummus recipes on the internet.
.
Highlights of pesto 😋: Spinach, in this pesto recipe, is an extremely nutrient-rich vegetable. It contains a good amount of carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron and calcium.😍
.
Hope you enjoy these simple recipes ❤️

  • Please Read ! CARBS - not all carbs are created equal so it's important to focus on macro & micro (nutrional value) of foods. When people cut carbs they often restrict bread but continue to eat 🍉🍇🍏. FRUITS ARE CARBS and there is nothing wrong with that. A lot of fruit actually contain more carbs than foods deemed "bad" 🚫 like bread. I'm not saying to cut out fruit and bread, for most of us carbs are a very important food group 😍! Fruits contain a ton of nutrients, vitamins and have a lot of benefits that overly processed bread doesn't have! It's important to remember there are also different kinds of carbs like complex carbs and simple carbs, and our bodies process them, break them down and use them differently. Fruits digest very differently and both of these foods fall on different places on the glycemic index which affects the body too. The weights of these are also different and important to keep in mind. The point of this, is that it is beneficial to know what's what ☝so you can make informed choices based on your dietary preferences and goals. What works for one person may not work for another. I personally include both whole grain sprouted bread and fruit in my diet because it works for me. Bananas are also a🍌 great preworkout! Better yet, banana, peanut butter sandwiches are where it's at!

  • Know your spices! 🌶
.
Spices have been around for centuries and they’re definitely not going anywhere. Not only are they are a great low calorie way to flavor your food but they’re also packed full of different benefits. I wanted to share some of the top spices I use and some of the research behind them! Check out all the nuggets of info below:
.
Cayenne - In numerous studies, the active compound in cayenne, capsaicin, has been shown to reduce appetite. (1) Capsaicin also has been shown to increase energy expenditure through the activation of brown adipose tissue in humans (aka boost fat burning capabilities) (2) Although not sure how big the fat burning effect is, cayenne could be a great option to add to your health routine.
.
Turmeric - The compound curcumin in turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that fights oxidative stress. Initial studies show promising effects of curcumin on the prevention and therapy of cancer (3)
.
Black pepper - Black pepper in particular boosts the absorption of the compound curcumin and in one study was shown to boost the bioavailability by up to 2,000% (4) Studies has also shown it to boost the absorption of beta-carotene.
.
Sea salt - salt Is an essential mineral and too little or too much can prove to be problematic for overall health. High quality pink Himalayan or sea salt also contains trace minerals and doesn’t have any additives like the standard table salts you normally find.
.
Ceylon Cinnamon - can lower blood sugar by slowing down the breakdown of carbs and improving overall insulin sensitive (5) Cinnamon also is a potent antioxidant that can help fight inflammation (6)
.
Cumin - has been shown to increase the activity of digestive enzymes and increase the release of bile form your liver which helps to digests fat & certain nutrients. 1 tsp of cumin has 1.4mg of iron which is 17.5% of the RDI (7)
.
What’s your favorite spice? I know mine is definitely cinnamon.

  • This was me about 3 yrs ago. Approximately 40lbs heavier. Years of terrible eating and not enough activity finally caught up with me. I knew I needed to make a change with my food but had no idea where to start
.
.
I was completely overwhelmed by the idea of following some special diet so I decided to try and eat “low carb”. So I ate in my mind what I thought was low carb and I lost about 30lbs over 2.5 doing this along with weightlifting
.
.
I had been stuck around 130 lbs and the weight was starting to tick back up again because I was getting lax with my food choices. Eating ice cream and sweets while eating “low carb” is certainly not low carb anymore and I was now for sure in caloric surplus
.
.
August 2018, enter macro counting and real caloric deficit. The rest is history. Have been uping my calories since September to find maintenance
.
.
Please keep in mind the muscle I have now has been building over last 3 years. It grows even more when you are in surplus. So once the fat layer was removed this was all underneath. You do not have muscle under your fat unless you have built it
.
.
Some people are disappointed with the way their bodies look as they lose weight and my only advice is you have to lift weights to get the curves and give skin something to grab onto...otherwise it just hangs
.
.
If you are just starting, stay with it! Results are possible at any age. I never in a million years thought this was possible for me. Have to stay the course even when it’s not fun or you are not happy with your results that particular day. Hard work always pays off... I promise. ❤️SC

  • Will the real fad dieters please stand up?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Ever been drawn to a fad diet? Yea, me too. It’s easy to get caught into them when you find yourself in a place physically you aren’t happy with. I’ve been on many different diets since having kids. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Fad diets feed into our desire for instant gratification. We want what we want when we want it. We can all try and say that isn’t true, but look at the culture in which we live. Amazon delivers things to my house on the SAME DAY I order it!!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The thing about fat loss is it takes time just like it takes time to gain fat. It doesn’t happen overnight. Sure on some of those fad diets like the celery juice craze 🙄 you lose weight quickly but I hate to break it to ya... that’s not sustainable weight loss. Once you add in food your weight will go back up and often times with a lot of these starving diets it goes up higher than it was before. And don’t even get me started on the metabolic damage that happens when we put our bodies through this stuff. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The best advice I can give you when it comes to nutrition is to not forget the basics and to be in it for the long haul. View your nutrition as a lifestyle for overall health and then the body comp you desire will follow. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💦Drink lots of water⁣⁣
🥦PLEASE eat veggies ⁣⁣
🥩Eat enough protein⁣⁣
⚖️Find balance in your life⁣⁣
🚶🏼‍♀️Move daily⁣⁣
💤 SLEEP⁣
🧘🏼‍♀️Limit stress⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The basics are basics for a reason. They work. Sure it’s not sexy and it isn’t going to be fast, but I don’t know about you but losing and gaining the same 10lbs over and over again in search for the next best thing messed me up in a lot of ways. It doesn’t have to be that way. ♥️

  • Что то я взгрустнула к ночи. Я стараюсь держать себя в позитиве, но это дает трещинки. 
Я бы хотела многим поделиться, но в один пост сложно вместить все мысли.
Так трудно держать себя в руках, когда со всех сторон льется негатив. Стараешься отшучиваться, закрываться, но это не спасает и рано или поздно я начинаю скатываться снова в глубину своей грусти. Частично это от невозможности самореализации, конечно, малой работоспособности и вследствии -минимальных доходов. Не знаю как вам, а мне пара бумажек добавляют радости и уверенности  в себе. Кто говорит, что деньги не могут принести счастья - пусть попробует пожить на 100 баксов в месяц, покупая на них еду, вещи, мебель и оплачивая комуналку. Я поражаюсь, откуда люди порой беоут столько энергии, что успевают все. Потому что лично я чувствую себя тюленем частенько
Так уж вышло, что мы живем в капиталистическом мире и сколько бы ты ни старался искать счастья в мелочах, радоваться тому что есть, ловить каждый момент, но все это меркнет, когда просто хочется кушать, а нечего.
Собиралась совсем о другом написать и скатилась в политику. Ну. Пусть так. В следующий раз напишу тогда, если не забуду
Берегите себя

  • Thoughts on M E A L  P R E P?

Healthy doesn’t have to be complicated and meal preps don’t have to be boring. If you’re someone who can’t stand eating the same meal all week but are still looking to meal prep... I suggest this approach!

Keep things basic. Prep a protein, a grain and a rainbow of veggies over the weekend and spice it up during the week. 🌶💃🏻
.
E X P L A I N 🤔

Basic  P R O T E I N  ideas: shredded chicken, ground turkey, pork tenderloin, turkey tenderloin, simply marinated lean steak.

Basic  G R A I N  ideas: quinoa, rice, potatoes, any riced or spiralized veggie, pasta or noodles.

V E G G I E S: a medley of veggies steamed or roasted on a sheet pan or simply chopped and prepped for cooking throughout the week.

T O G E T H E R: mix and match the veggies with your grain and protein and vary the flavors through the use of dressings, spices, fresh greens, fruit/produce and healthy fats (ex. BBQ sauce, hot sauce, olive oil, balsamic, chipotle, avocado, tzatziki, hummus, salsa, pasta sauce, pesto, spinach, kale, arugula, micro greens etc).
.
M E A L  I D E A: BBQ chicken, quinoa and veggies. Easy. Delicious. Inexpensive.

  • Mi primer año de entrenamiento fue basicamente un año de aprendizage, he cambiado mi cuerpo pero no tanto como podría haberlo hecho. Y eso porque? Porque no le di importancia a la alimentación. Aprendí a entrenar pero no sabía comer. Tenía como objectivo el aumento de massa muscular pero andava a ciegas, "creía" que estava comiendo bastante pero no sabía exactamente. Despues de ir a un nutricionista, aprendi a comer sano y a tener consciencia de calorias y de macronutrientes. Pesar comida no es de locos, es algo que podeis hacer durante un tiempo hasta que aprendáis y después ya tendréis una idea clara de vuestra ingesta diaria.

Aprendí a entrenar pero no sabía comer. Tenía como objectivo el aumento de massa muscular pero andava a ciegas, "creía" que estava comiendo bastante pero no sabía exactamente. Despues de ir a un nutricionista, aprendi a comer sano y a tener consciencia de calorias y de macronutrientes. Pesar comida no es de locos, es algo que podeis hacer durante un tiempo hasta que aprendáis y después ya tendréis una idea clara de vuestra ingesta diaria.

  • Hi 👋 
I’m still around.
#Update
I still workout.
The box just doesn’t have mirrors so no #gymselfies and I’m ok with that! Loving this training style and couldn’t be happier with where I’m currently at.
Still working with @seeyoulaterleaner for nutrition to make sure that everything stays in check and I just really enjoy the accountability.
Tank and leggings from @zyia.with.brandyfit @zyiaactive and I love this combo!! Never would I have thought I’d wear light purple leggings but I’m obsessed with these!

-
I love flexible dieting but now the long weekend is over I need to knuckle down and prepare for All England powerlifting championships in May 💪🏽
-
This means that midweek (and any training days that fall on a weekend too) I will have all my meals advance prepared.
-
Why? This isn’t just about staying on track. This is about nutrition timing, balancing out my calories and macros throughout the days meals and snacks. This way I will have a steady flow of energy, and my body will get a steady flow of nutrients to not only fuel it for training, but also to aid in recovery.
-
Whilst I am reverse dieting and my calories are still low, this is all the more crucial for keeping healthy and able to perform.
-
MENU
• Breakfast: Ham and egg ‘muffin’. @kelloggs.uk All Bran, almond milk and blueberries.
• Snack 1: An apple with peanut butter.
• Lunch: Paprika chicken, chimicurri olives, pinto beans in herby tomato sauce and fine green beans.
• Snack 2: @propercorn.
• Dinner: Tuna and pea spaghetti simply dressed in olive oil and fresh lemon juice.
• BEDTIME PROTEIN: Chia seed and @myproteinuk casein pudding
• @evianwater Don’t forget to hydrate! I drink 3-4ltrs a day!

  • ✨my afternoon involves : sunshine, an audiobook, and grilling all the delicious vegetables 🍅🍠 you know what’s been on my mind today? {I totally know you were just asking yourself this..”I wonder what Michelle has been thinking today??” 😂} getting out of my head and into my ⒽⒺⒶⓇⓉ.💕
letting ish go and just ⒻⓁⓄⓌⒾⓃⒼ.✌️ when we are always so focused on thoughts running through our head 💭and the things on our to do list, we can 
1. feel like a chicken with our head cut off 😲
2. lose awareness and get out of touch with ourselves.
and when this happens we start to lose our own voice, lose our own MFing power.⚡️ on top of it, this frazzled state is no way to manifest what you want in yo life.😑 in order to manifest rad AF shit, we must be in that ⒻⓁⓄⓌ zone connected to our heart,
and in a state of intense gratitude.🙏 the quickest way to get what you desire?

be insanely grateful for what you already have, and know that if ⓎⓄⓊ are doing ⓎⓄⓊⓇ part, the universe always delivers.💫 so right now I am making a thank you list for all that I have:

the sun on my face ☀️ my body and the amazing things it does for me errryy damn day 💪

the time freedom to unplug and spend my afternoon doing this 😜

warmer weather & fresh vegetables 🤣 #itsthelittlethingsinlife 👐

your turn love 👉 what are you thankful for right meow? share below to raise your vibration.💖😘 #TotalWellness #Wednesday #RaiseYourVibration
