Do you think this soup looks good? Me too. But it wasn’t—until I added every spice I own and a few condiments from the fridge. Hubby had requested hot, comforting noodle soup for the windy, cold weather. It sounded good to me too.
Twice in the last week I’ve made “noodle soup.” The first try was an Asian version; it was inedible. This one was, fortunately, better. But still?!?! As I stared at a kitchen full of dirty dishes and considered the time spent, I sighed. Ugh.
I followed a recipe (after reading half a dozen) and made the veggie broth from scratch because I wanted dinner to be delicious. I wanted a soup that equaled the taste of the chicken and homemade noodles I made before we became plant-based eaters.
As I fought disappointment I grabbed the notes from a recent Sunday message. Maybe it’s a message you need too?
We are studying the Lord’s Prayer. My notes on Give us this day our daily bread . . . remind me God expects and wants our common prayer for common things.
I made the menu and grocery shopped with a thankful heart but the help I sought was “googling recipes.” I’m starting today with prayer for the common things—including dinner prep. :) What common thing do you need to talk with God about?

The girl in the left picture had completely lost herself. She had gained and lost the same 30lbs over and over again. She suffered with secondary infertility that lead to 2 miscarriages, anxiety, and depression. She coped with stress by emotional eating and drinking way too much wine. She had no idea how she had gotten to this point. She was working way too many hours as a family doctor and spending way too many hours away from her children. Is this what she had spent so much time, money, education, and training to do for the rest of her life?🙈
The girl on the right has been able to find herself again through a career that she has built from hard working and hustling— but it’s been on HER terms and time table! She has lost the 30 lbs, has given birth to 3 children and has helped thousands of women with their health journeys/start their own businesses so they can create financial stability too!💁🏼♀️
Thank you @jaymethompson20
, for reaching out to me almost 4 years ago and sharing this blessing with me. It sounds dramatic, but for real....this has totally changed my life! 💕
If you’re working to improve your life, you will hit a few bumps along the way. The trick to overcoming these obstacles is to get over it, and move forward. For example, if you ate terribly today, get over it, eat healthy, nutritious foods starting with your next meal. You skipped your workout this morning? Get over it. Try an at-home workout, or stop by the gym on your way home from the office. You ate all the leftover Halloween candy? Get over it. Throw the rest away (or hide it away in a cabinet - if it’s not yours to toss), and move on. One bad meal, one missed workout, or one day of overeating will not undo weeks of hard work. However, that one bad meal or one missed workout can mentally undo weeks of hard work, if you let it. It isn’t this mistake that matters; it’s what you do next that does. If you follow up that one meal with a few days of healthy eating, you can get right back on track. When you skip one workout, it becomes extremely important you don’t miss your next. Don’t allow one missed day to become two, which can become a week, and easily become a month. Get over it, and keep pushing toward your goals.

My go-to, no fuss breakfast. A bowl of oats with a small heaping spoonful of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of a berry mix, a drizzle of honey and a dash of cinnamon. 👍🏼How do you start your day? 🌞 =====
For contrast, I also cooked my kids French toast and sausage links for breakfast 😋 None for me though. 💁🏽♀️
Feeling grateful and breathing deeply helps to relieve nausea 🙏
Stress makes you breathe faster and you can get dizzy and nauseous from an imbalance of oxygen and carbon dioxide ☹
Feeling grateful diatracts your brain from stress ✌
You can show your brain that you are safe by belly breathing, making the exhale longer than the inhale 😌
This could be done when you wake up, while reading emails or waiting for the kettle to boil. Every bit helps, and the more you practice then the more you will do it naturally 💚
Fall has dropped its last leaf 🍁 and my scale is dropping too!! 🙌🏻 I’m a basic bargain shopper and found this cute @jcrew
sweater on @eBay
2 years ago... when I got it is was too small but I’ve held onto for 2 years... today it fits and I’m all smiles going into the week of Thanksgiving 🦃 with excitement rather than dread... you know, all the delicious casseroles, cranberry sauce, rolls, & pies, because on my nutrition plan I get to eat regular foods (including the pies & wine) and I can still make it a weight loss day!! Only 4lbs to go to meet my goal!! 💪🏻
Who wants to join me in a Beat the Holidays Challenge group? 🎄 We will start on December 3 for a NUTRITION ONLY accountability group. I can add 8 ladies 😊 **Double tap for all the details!! .
You still have time to lose 30lbs by Jan. 1st!! #letsdothistogether
Food can often be one thing that’s really hard to take control of when trying to live a healthy lifestyle. @ameliafreer
a registered nutritional therapist makes it easier to know what to eat with her ‘positive nutrition pyramid’. You want to aim to consume daily:
✔️ 8 glasses of 💦 ✔️ 6 portions of vegetables ✔️ 3 portions of fresh fruit ✔️ 3 portions of protein ✔️ 2 portions of complex carbohydrates ✔️ 2 portions of healthy fats ✔️ 1 portion of nuts & seeds
She offers a great printable check list version of this on her website (link below). It’s a great resource to use for a week to get your nutrition back on track.

Last night dinner required all hands on deck, Unicorn Ravioli with Hemp Pesto by @lenaliciously

Are you a Jam nerd 🤓 like myself and sometimes feel like the sugary commercial crapola you lather onto your morning toast isn't perhaps the best way to start the day 🤔. FEAR NOT my little jammy enthusiasts, I have just the remedy for your great morning dilemma, and it goes something like this....*🎶Run DMC - 'Its Like That' spontaneously begins playing in background*....
2 cups of frozen organic raspberries
3 Tbsp of chia seeds
1/2 Tsp of vanilla extract
2 Tbsp of water
2 Tbsp of coconut sugar.
Whack all the ingredients into a pot and simmer away at a low heat for a couple of minutes until the berries have broken down. Allow to cool, and place into a clean jar and store in the fridge (use within 2-3 weeks). This is also a great gift idea coming up to Christmas 🎄.
In this little jar of jammy goodness you have antioxidants from the berries, healthy omega 3 fatty acids and fibre from the chia seeds and a low GI sugar alternative with the coconut sugar. Enjoy with a lathering of organic grass fed butter on organic sourdough rye and BOOM 👊🏻💥 #yourewelcome

🔥LET’S TALK PROTEIN🔥
♦️The talk around protein these days is all over the place. I get asked all the time... Adam, “how much should I eat”, “when should I be getting it in” and “if I’m vegan/vegetarian how do I get enough protein”.
🥑Depending on who you ask, be it the vegan brigade who usually demonise protein and play down how much you need to the gym junkies telling us we should eat every bit of protein in site, it can be hard to know what’s what.
♦️With all this noise, it can be hard to determine what to listen to and what is best for your body and your goals.
♦️YES.... There is research that suggests that timing your protein post workout in periodic meals is better for uptake and protein synthesis, however, these effects are VERY small and probably a waste of time for anyone who isn’t looking to compete on the physique stage or be a high level athlete.
♦️For EVERYONE else, a much more basic approach will see you attain 95% of the results you are looking for and won’t see your head spinning with an overload of information.
♦️The most simple approach is to consume 1g-1.5g of protein per kilogram of bodyweight in any number of meals across your day. Whether you are looking to lose weight, gain lean muscle or do a little of both, this will work for you.
♦️What is the best source of protein you ask? While it may be more difficult for a vegan to get their protein in, you most certainly can make it work. Pay no attention to the gorilla at the gym telling you that a vegan life will never see you reach your goals, just take a look at @frank_medrano
to see what a vegan physique can look like.
♦️Alternatively, eating animal protein is perfectly fine for your health and when done in a calorie controlled way, can be much easier to see you reach your daily protein targets.
♦️Just like your primary school teacher said K.I.S.S, Keep It Simple Stupid!
♦️I hope this post helps clear up any confusion around protein, how much you should have and when you should get it in.
❓As with all my posts, should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to put them below as I would be more than happy to help answer them❓
Slicing up homemade bread before bed...I could think of worse things to do! (Thanks #OMGoodness
for the super easy bread mix too!)
So let's talk about gut health.
Do you suffer from bloating, abdominal pain/discomfort, constipation/diarrhea, acid reflux, poor digestion, low energy or mood swings? These are just some of the symptoms that may indicate a possible imbalance or underlying digestive disorder.
Well it doesn't have to be that way. When working properly our digestive system should be a finely tuned organ with a diverse and interdependant eco system of friendly bacteria that work away keeping us healthy. The good bacteria help us to digest our food, remove toxins, regulate hormones and produce vital nutrients.
It's when the friendly bacteria are out of balance that can give rise to digestive complaints.
The good news is we can do a lot to look after our gut health. My number 1 top tip is to include more fibre. Think of fibre as the compost that feeds the soil in the garden. In the same way, fibre feeds our gut bacteria to extract energy and nutrients which can improve our immune function, decrease inflammation and protect against obesity. It's always a good idea to work with a registered nutritional therapist for a personalised approach to your health.
This vegetable soup made with onions, garlic, celery, leeks, courgette, asparagus, mushrooms, cabbage and white beans is just the perfect mix of fibre to feed my gut bacteria.
Happy Thursday folks 💚

Parfois, je me mets à rire.🙄
Rire de voir tous ces plats défiler sur Facebook, sur Instagram.
C'est là qu'on se rend compte que la nourriture, c'est plus que de la nourriture, dans notre société.
C'est là qu'on se rend compte, que se nourrir, n'est pas si simple pour tous et chacun. .
Raisons relationnelles ...
Et qu'on en vient à prendre en photo une soupe à la courge ou un gratin de courgettes pour inspirer / motiver / comparer.
Moi aussi, je demande à mon mari de prendre en photo mon risotto ou parfois, je risque de faire tomber mon iphone dans ma soupe en faisant l'acrobate😂☺️
Mais, quand je prends un peu de recul, je me dis que tout ça c'est bien comique et quelque part un peu triste. 😌
Triste que ça ne soit pas si simple de bien se nourrir pour tous et chacun.❤️

As part of my next 90 days of wellness, growth and sharing my passions (one of which is cooking), I’m planning to share some of the recipe I make and love. #cookbookprep
Last night, I made the most delicious chicken dish. The chicken was marinated with coconut aminos, garlic, ginger, lime and spices.
Then broiled and after it was cooked through I added a sauce that had salsa, mayo, sour cream, bone broth and spices.
Served it with some Asiago cauliflower risotto!
Oh man it was so good ;)

Roasted Vietnamese ginger chicken wings, steamed carrot chips, broccoli, okra, calrose rice 🍗🥕🥦🍚.
This chicken dish is typically braised, but I decided to roast it instead and it came out perfect 😍🙌🏻 Less of a hassle = winning 👏🏻 Are you a fan of okra? It’s in my Louisiana ⚜️ southern bred blood so I love it 😁.
Toss 4.5 lbs of chicken wings with 2tbsp sugar + 4 tbsp fish sauce + thinly sliced ginger. Roast at 375F for 50 mins rotating half way 🤘🏻.
Have a great evening, y’all! #diningwithdiana

Jojojo feliz navidad!!! 🙄ok no😂😂🤦♀️
No sabia que nombre ponerle a esta FITliciosidad!! Asiqueee.....que se llamee.... ***MUGCACIN***🙄🙄😅 Primero: esta verde porque le puse calabacin,zuccini,carote o como lo conoscan🥒,y tranquilosss no sabe a calabacin se los juroo ,se le puse para darle volumen al postre y asi pues tenga lo sufi para quedar feliz 😅por las tardes generalmente es cuando mas hambre tengo mas aun si termine de entrenar,y me dan ganas de comerme un mundo🤦♀️y como el aporte calorico de mi amado zuccini🥒 es casi nada hay qe sacarle provecho 😈jiji, antes de que me ponga intensa y empiece a hablar de otras cosaa(como siempre) mejor empiezo con el modus operandi 👩🍳!
-50g de calabacin
-5 claras de huevo
-30g de hojuelas de quinoa (reemplazable por avena)
-stevia o el edulcorante que usan a gusto
-1 cucharadita de polvo de hornear
-canela a gusto!
-esencia de vainilla si quieren pero yo prefiero pinerle maaas canela 😅
-PRIMERO rayan o cortan en pedazos pequeños el calabacin y lo meten a la licuadora con un chorrin de agua. Hasta que se haga tipo pure y ahi le hechan la quinoa o la avena ,la canela,el polvo de hornear,la stevia,2 claras y vuelven a licuar hasta que de integre todoo y cuando ya tengas la mezcla lo vacias en un bowl o cualquier recipiente y recien le pones las otras 3 claras,con un tenedor lo bates todo hasta que la mezcla quede un poco espumosita,despues en un sarten lo llevas a fuego medio ojo tiene qe estar tapado,dejas unos 10 segundos a fuego medio y le bajas al minimooo y dejas que se vaya cocinando (tapado),despues de unos 2 minutos abres y lo revuelves un poco y lo vuelves a tapar,y repites hasta que tu veas que ya esta listo! El hecho de abrir,revolver y volver a tapar y volver a revolver lalaala jeje hace que salga mas cremosito!
Una vez que ya tu veas qe la mezcla esta algo asi como chiclosa lo pasas al recipiente en el que lo vas a servir y lo dejas enfriar a temperatura ambiente y listo! Yo le puse mantequilla de mani pero pueden ponerle fruta o protella (les enseñe la anterior vez) 😋 +1taza de cafe😋👌 ñooomi!!
Cualquier duda aqui abajito⤵️⤵️
Jo jo jo!!! Para el desayuno de hoy???? Cha cha channnnnn ** ABRAZOSFIT*** (no se me cocurrio otro nombre)😂 Estoooooo me saliooo perooo D E L I C I O S O!!! ese relleno tipo budin de chocolateee ooooooj😍😋 son una malditaaaa delicia se los juro!!!
