Happy Friday y’all! If you’ve been around the blog long, you know I’ve become a huge advocate for anti-inflammatory diets, but exactly what can trigger those inflammatory responses can differ from person to person. I already had some suspicions about what foods trigger a response for me, but I wanted to put those suspicions to the test!Continue reading “my food sensitivity results!”
Happy Wednesday! We’re half way through the week – if you’re anything like me you’re muttering “you got this” to yourself multiple times throughout the day. I’m finally back with a Wellness Wednesday post y’all will hopefully enjoy – this has actually been one of my most requested posts and I just now got around to feeling like I had a grocery haul worth sharing.Continue reading “grocery haul + what I’m meal prepping”
Hello readers! I’ve been spending the last couple of days planning some content – specifically wellness related – and I’m so excited to start working on it for y’all! 2019 has truly been a huge year in terms of lifestyle changes for me, but I can say I have genuinely been feeling my absolute best because of it. And, as always, my vision for this blog is to help y’all do the same. I’m hoping that by sharing what I’ve been doing + the changes I’ve seen will help inspire y’all to make any changes that you have been wanting to make.Continue reading “my current exercise routine, spring 2019”
Happy Friday! We made it! There really are weeks when it feels like Friday will never come – seeing as how I woke up Tuesday morning and immediately thought “it’s Friday!” only to realize it was definitely not Friday… I’d have to say it was one of those long weeks for me.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of my favorite Instagram accounts with y’all, so I wanted to list some of my recent faves! You might have seen my recent post about going flexitarian – changing your diet in such a big way can seem kind of intimidating, but it always helps to surround yourself with encouragement + support. That’s why I found some plant-based accounts to follow so I can stay motivated, encouraged, and inspired. Whether you’re flexitarian, plant-based, vegan, or not, all of these feeds are super fun, colorful, and were aesthetically pleasing, so you might find them fun to follow, too!Continue reading “follow friday: my favorite plant-based instagram accounts”
If you are unfamiliar with the term “flexitarian” (much like I was until I looked it up not long ago), it is also known as “semi-vegetarian.” In the past month I made some major changes to my diet, which has included focusing on a primarily plant-based diet (I make more vegan options than vegetarian) but I still eat meat every now and again, but no more than only a few times a month. This shift started to come about after writing the Wellness Wednesday post The Power of Plant Based, which prompted me to further my research + understanding past a biased, seemingly fear-tactic based documentary.Continue reading “I’m going flexitarian, and here’s why”
Okay, so it’s actually Thursday by the time I’m getting this up because it ended up being a little bit more of an undertaking than I intended. This is definitely a topic that I could talk about for forever, but I had to try and find a way to write about it without boring y’all lol. This was initially supposed to be more of a review over the documentary What the Health, but after struggling through the first half of the film I finally made it to the part that I could actually get on board with. I’ll precursor this post too by saying that documentaries are stressful and they need footnotes. I need to see the research they’re looking at for myself lolContinue reading “wellness wednesday: the power of plant based”
this week it has felt unreal that yet another school year has started that I won’t be attending as a student. I still miss my days of darting across campus and being surrounded by the buzz of my fellow peers despite how slammed I was between classes, homework, and my job(s). however, I found it was that hectic phase of my life that taught me important lessons about how to implement + maintain healthy habits even when I’m running from one thing to the next and don’t always have the time or energy to make a meal on the spot. so today, I’m telling you my favorite ways of keeping a healthy diet + habits! while the title says for “busy schedules,” these are obviously practices anyone can use. these worked for me as both an active, over-scheduled student and as a sedentary, 9-5 young professional.Continue reading “how to maintain a healthy diet with a busy schedule”
