December 20, 2017

Have you heard of Dr. Lauren Fitz and her podcast, Fitz and Healthy? I was lucky enough to get some airtime with her and her co-host Cinthanie, and we had an amazing conversation about the top three reasons why I think we fail at dieting.

You can watch (I was having a great hair day) or listen to it here... I also give a gift at the end that makes my Conscious Eating Course cheaper than it's ever been.


Weekly Meal Prep

Turkey Chili Over Cauliflower Rice - Truth be told, I got lazy and threw the cauliflower chunks in the crockpot instead of making the "rice" and it was just as good and much easier. :) I topped this with raw scallions and Daiya cheddar cheese. Yes, this tapioca cheese is more processed but dairy free is the way to be.

BBQ Brisket, Mashed Cauliflower Potatoes and Collard Greens - Always squeeze lemon on your greens! The vitamin C in the lemon helps to make the iron in your greens more absorbable. Squeeze at the end of cooking so you don't kill the enzymes of the lemon with heat. As for the brisket, I throw it in the crockpot with a little bone broth, onions, salt and pep and then I add BBQ sauce at the end. Try this BBQ sauce by Tessamae. It's sweetened with dates!

Chicken Piccata with Sautéed Brocollini - Make sure the skin is crispy on these guys, it makes the meal! No one wants to have nor wants to eat mushy chicken skin.

Chicken Soup for the Soul - I pretended the potatoes were matzah balls. Happy Chanukah!

Who doesn’t love free dessert??! 🤤

It was such a sweet gesture from our waiter on a special evening. And just because it’s free doesn’t mean I have to finish it all. I had to remember that it’s ok to be grateful and to say thank you while still respecting my goals 🙏🏽😍 .

Your body is a physical reflection of how much you respect, love, and care for yourself. 💗

At the same time, I believe that the plate right in front of you is a reflection of your inner emotional state. ⠀
⠀
Looking down and seeing a sh***y pile of nachos? A handful of crackers as you stand in your pantry? You aren't feeling so hot... emotionally speaking. ⠀
⠀
Feeling better and eating better starts with small steps. It can be as simple as starting with some #beautiful plates, sitting down and taking the time to consciously eat what's in front of you. Even if it is that last slice of leftover #pizza!

Need help? I've been there and would love to talk - DM me!⠀
