golden milk

Aka Turmeric Ginger Milk Tea (dairy free)! Why? Turmeric is: -anti-inflammatory -cleanses the gut -helps you to sleep -fights off colds & flu Ginger: -soothes sore throat -aids in digestion -helps nausea My mom used to make me ginger milk all the time. Decided it was time to up my game and add the turmeric. Pretty good! 😊 Ingredients 2 cups of almond milk 1 teaspoon dried turmeric 1 teaspoon dried ginger or 1/2 inch of fresh ginger sliced Sprinkle of black pepper Sweetener to taste Place almond milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Add turmeric, ginger, and pepper.…

Anxiety + stress is a b**** I had quite a night. E fell pretty hard off her bed into a nightstand and then face first on to the hardwood. Which led to an ER visit and now headed to a dentist. She’s somewhat ok & thankfully didn’t have a concussion. If you’re a parent, you know how much it sucks to see your baby hurt. When there’s so much blood and you can’t tell where it’s coming from. Add anxiety & a child that hates going to the doctor… All I wanted this morning was junk food. I was seriously…

Crazy to think that was me a year ago. So much has changed for me since then, but the biggest and most important…my confidence! Fifty pounds down and I learned what it takes to get there. Simple nutrition, simple fitness, simple support, & dropping the excuses! Let’s get real. Aren’t you worth investing $4.66 a day?! My Fall in (Self) Love challenge starts on 10/26!

Hi loves! I’ve been running a “plant based challenge” group on Facebook and it’s been wonderful! We’ve gone over nutrition, recipes, how to eat a plant based diet on the go, and so much more. One of my favorite and super easy recipes that’s full of protein, fiber, & other good stuff for your bod: chickpea salad. I cook chickpeas ahead of time because it’s just cheaper and I know it’s not covered in salt. You can totally make it from can though, just rinse it. Place 2 cups (or one can) of chickpeas in a food processor or mash…

I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT! No, I’m not pregnant, silly people. I’ve kind of vague-booked before that I made a big goal for myself and my family, but I’ve shared what that is with only a few people. I am ready to tell the world because I have set fear aside (mostly, that’s what personal development is for :)) and know that when I really put myself out there and tell you all my goal, it will happen. I have set in motion the foundation and am working hard to reach it. So what is it? Well, you need a little…

Feeling sassy! ;)

Before the summer started, I promised myself that I would wear my first ever bikini. While some of that is because I wanted to prove to myself that I can be a fit mom of three, but the biggest part was that I knew when I finally put that bikini on, it meant I has reached the point where I was most confident in myself. I got into that swimsuit, dgaf what others thought, and played on the beach and got in the water with my kids. This picture shows a physical transformation, but I am most proud of my…

More likely than not, if you’re reading this, you’re a friend, or someone who has seen my transformation and wants to know how I got to where I am. I usually give a generic answer: I was feeling terrible; I gained so much weight; I want my kids to have a healthy role model, etc. All of that is true, but my true reason, my deep down, makes-me-cry-and-motivates-me β€œwhy,” is so much more. I have three amazing children that I love more than they will ever know. They are my light in my sometimes stormy world. Except for my family,…
