It’s simply a bowl of fruit, yet so many wouldn’t eat it because of the “diet” they follow.
It’s full of vitamins, energy and tastes like forbidden candy. It’s great for staying hydrated, packs a punch of vitamin C, fibre and folate, is great on its own, tossed in a salad and options like 🍎🍇🍌🍓🍏 are great for when you’re on the go.
Elimination “diets” drive me nuts. Deciding to skip all the good found in fruit just seems plain silly to me, never mind the long term health ramifications.
Could you adopt a lifestyle that excludes grains, fruit, dairy, meat, cookies or ice cream for the rest of your life
Or are you doing it just for the weight loss and then plan to return to eating all foods once you reach your goal weight Seems silly doesn’t it So why are you justifying it in your head
Balance exists, you can eat all the foods and still feel great, be healthy and even lose weight if that’s a goal. Eliminating foods will only lead to binging later, having feelings of remorse, regret and deprivation. We must eat to fuel our bodies and eat to fill our soul, finding balance can be tricky, but with the right support it’s possible and you are capable.
Need some guidance or a little nudge to clean up your habits Let’s chat!

Take a minute and ask yourself if what your consuming is contributing back to your local communities both in dollars and environmental conservation Is the farmer who’s making your cheese, yogurt, veggies, fruit, etc. doing their part to ensure that your community land resources are being protected for future generations If you don’t know that’s okay but today and the rest of this week we challenge you to go outside, find your local farmers, and learn what they are doing to grow/make your food in ways that are protecting our earth! 🌎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On our farm #earthday is a lifestyle. We are always finding ways to become better farmers and stewards of the land because it’s our social responsibility and #SeedtoCheese for us is deeply embedded in every aspect of our farming and cheesemaking practices. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This week we are sharing 5 fun facts about our farming practices in honor of #earthday so here is fun fact 1: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All the grass that we grow on our farm uses natural fertilizers that our cows produce in a NO-TILL system that is very protective of natural resources. The structure of our alleyways in the barns are designed on a slope so that when the cows are out milking we can flush them out , collect the manure, and use it throughout the year to fertilize our fields. It is all 💯 Natural 💩!

I’ve seen SO many people end up making huge changes in their lives in a matter of days, by changing diet.
The suffering we feel in taking on that new diet is NOTHING compared to the suffering we experience in deciding not to.. I’d prefer the less suffering option please! 🥗 - does this look like pain/suffering to you Or LIFE

Happy Earth Day! ✨🌏🌍🌎✨⠀
Honestly, we were torn about what photo to share for Earth Day. We asked ourselves all kinds of questions trying to figure out what would have the most impact on our community. Did we want to post a picture of food Maybe, discuss how one of the most impactful ways to reduce your carbon footprint is to choose a vegan/plant-based diet Or, should we share more on our tiny home We could highlight how living off-grid (or close to it) can drastically reduce our resource and energy consumption Maybe, we share something about the animals Something about the beings that share this wonderful planet with us who suffer all the consequences of our actions⠀
So, here we are. A photo of majestic Mount Baker from a trip this winter. A wonderful symbol of stillness and elevation. As we reflected on this day, we found that this resonated the most with us. It reminds us of Earth's natural splendor. It's relentless need to grow, to expand, to rise up. ⠀
To live a more conscious and aware life, you have to live an elevated existence. One where you hold your body, this planet, and all its beings with the highest forms of respect and benevolence. From us to you, we wish we you a compassionate and loving Earth day! ✨

"Closer to the Land" isn't just our brand name, it's a way of living. Our farm is setup to minimize our negative footprint and maximize the good. We are in no means perfect, but we continuously strive to improve.
When we left the army life we were lost and exhausted. In search of a place to start the healing process, we packed up and drove across the country to get to this little parcel of land that we call home. Some chickens and goats fell into our lives and that was the start of our farming journey.
We started learning about the harms of conventional agriculture and became more aware of what we were supporting every time we bought food. If you have to wear hazmat suits around your food, something is wrong. Incredibly wrong.
As we become more conscious of the bad, we also learned more about the healthier way of doing things. We discovered regenerative agriculture and start incorporating that ideology into our farm.
Living "closer to the land" doesn't necessarily mean buying land, going off-grid, growing tons of food, or becoming farmers, it could be as simple as taking a minute every day to consider how your actions are impacting the world around you.

💥💥💥If you drink diet sodas, listen up! It might be time to think about switching out your drink for something else! 🥤A recent study published in the medical journal Stroke found that a higher intake of artificially sweetened beverages (like diet sodas) led to an increased risk of stroke, coronary artery disease and a higher risk of death in general.
In women with no history of diabetes or heart disease, drinking more than 1 diet soda a diet was associated with a two-fold risk of having an ischemic stroke! 😵 💓The study included almost 82,000 women as part of the Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study. Most of the women in the study (61%) never or rarely drank artificially sweetened sodas, but after taking out a number of variables, those that consumed the most diet drinks – more than 1 a day – had a much higher risk of developing disease. 💛💚💙If you drink diet sodas or other artificially sweetened beverages, you can gradually wean yourself away from it. Try substituting other drinks such as tea or seltzer water, before making the switch to water. ☕ ❓Do you drink diet soda Are you willing to commit to cutting back Let me know below!
Also- be sure to pass this along to anyone who drinks diet soda!

Wwhhaatt!! Huh Fuel my body An I eating my emotions Yes. And yes. ▪
This phrase has become my fuel recently. Pre-kiddos I loved working out and fueling my body. I loved running, triathlons, ultrarunning, swimming in lakes, and more! But somewhere along this journey of hormones and kiddos I lost that. ▪
So yeah, you've been seeing me back working out! Wahoo! Talk about a crazy journey....woah. I love it! My body is craving it too! But until recently, I was still just eating. Yeah we eat healthy but my portions and emotions and hormones all ruled. Ssoooo I'm extremely grateful I came across this saying again. 👐 ▪
How are you fueling you today Don't worry, it's a journey. You'll get there when the time is right!

Balanced diet goals. 😋💯 We have a variety of house favorites that'll satisfy any of your food cravings. #johnsplacesocal
A lot of times it’s not about what diet we need to be on that’s most successful for us. A lot of times it’s about getting off of the junk that we consume too much of.
One of our absolute favorite meals in our home is a Mediterranean themed meal. Usually consisting of kefta (a small super flavor packed meatball) or grilled herbed chicken, crusty basmati rice with dill + nuts, grapefruit, salad, and a rotation of other veggies or sides (if I have time I make a freaking delicious spanakopita)
Stepping into whole body health + living the rest of your life at tip top is about embracing that whole, real food isn’t an enemy, but rather is what keeps us at our perfect weight when we tune into our body. Whole health is about embracing that a big social meal shared with loved ones feeds your well-being just as much as a kale smoothie.
Ultimate whole-ness + well-being does take time + is an always evolving personal journey of love. 💚 But once you learn the basics of what it takes to achieve this way of life it all becomes so simple, so delicious, + so (ful)filling. And this is just one of four parts of ultimate health that we will explore during our time together. ☯️

The General has arrived. 🍽️: General Tso's Chicken - Sesame fried chicken, tempura broccoli, bang bang sauce and coconut jasmine rice.
Just recently found out about the environmental impact of chemical sunscreen so we switched to mineral-based. Really rasy way to help the planet and better for us too.
We're always looking for new things we could be doing in our house to minimise our impact on the environment. Any recommendations
Acai berries are an amazing powerhouse of nutrition. Anti-inflammatory, high-antioxidant foods keep you healthy and, if sick, can bring you back to good health. Acai berries are full of valuable anti-inflammatory nutrients: anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, protocatechuic acid, procyanidins and epicatechin – in addition to vitamin C, vitamin A and dietary fiber, because of this acai berries have become synonymous with slowing down signs of aging and promoting good health. Acai berries have more to offer than just antioxidants — they also supply many other electrolytes, trace minerals, amino acids and even small amounts of essential fatty acids. For optimum health make Acai berries a regular part of your diet. #foodmatters #knowledgeispower #health #cleaneating #foodismedicine #healthyeating #healthychoices #fitfood #organiclifestyle #vegan #food #naturalremedies #organic #nourish #wellness #nourishyourself #fitness #wellnessjourney #goodhealth #wellnessadvocate #raw #eathealthy #plantbased #anticancer #antiaging #healthcare #anticancer #fruit #naturesmedicine #fit #fitfood #fitness
I remember the days when I had no idea the last time I showered, I had 3 toddlers running around still in pajamas, and my husband would call to let me know he was on his way home from work.
There was never a dinner plan. I ordered all of our food from a delivery service that specialized in overly processed frozen meals. All I had to do was pull something out of the freezer. I didn’t know any better at the time and honestly it’s all I had the energy for.
Fast forward a decade later and I’ve learned SO much since those frazzled, new mom days. I get asked all the time where I learned to cook the meals I post. I have to chuckle. I’m no cook. But I can follow a recipe with the best of them. And these are my “go to” goldmines.
Food matters. Ingredients matter. I’m not saying there aren’t treats. Don’t get me wrong. But 90% of the time I’m pretty darn proud of what gets put on our table.
When we know better we do better.👊🏻👊🏻
You don’t have to have fancy meals, sometimes a nice turkey sandwich does the trick! One of my fav things to pack for work or if I’m feeling lazy and don’t wanna cook 🤷🏼♀️
I use Boar’s head low sodium turkey-expensive but yummy, private selection has a low sodium version too if you’re interested. Sandwich thins for my bread with some avocado, throw some veggies with yogurt ranch on the side and waaalahhh! .
Swipe to see some of the products used and that even animals love it 😂 tbh tho Milo wants just about anything I have on my plate at all times.
#repost @denise.voight Encouraging your kids to participate in grocery shopping is a great way to get them interested in trying new and healthy foods 🌽 🍅 🥦 #tuesdaytips #nebahealth #happybrains #healthybrains
"Kids love being involved! One of the best ways to get your kids interested in healthy foods is to let them have a say in which ones they would like to try.
Let your child pick a new veggie at the store. Get them to help you search out a recipe online. Then try to make it a fun event to prepare it. They key here is to not get emotionally invested in the outcome. Don’t force your child to eat it. Maybe they need some time before they feel comfortable trying something new. But the introduction and the process of preparing is important. .
Do you have a good tip to share about how you attempt to get your kids to try something new Post below!

People of Italian and German descent who immigrated to Brazil inhabit the South of Brazil. They brought the knowledge of how to make wine and grow leafy vegetables with them and those foods are found in this the dishes of South Brazil. That's our kind of meal!

Hi friends, I’m Haley! Time for an overdue introduction for my new friends! 👋
First of all, thank you so much for being here! I know the social world can be crowded and so I truly value that you are spending some of your precious moments here with me! Please introduce yourself! I mean, we’re basically besties now. 😘
I have LOVED all things fitness and nutrition since I was 18 when I started working in my college’s brand new fitness center. That first year at college I lost 30 pounds, and after I graduated quickly earned certifications in Yoga 🧘♀️, Personal Training 💪, Group Ex 👯♀️, Nutrition 🥗, and several other specialty classes. I’ve run 2 marathons, 2 1/2 marathons, and 2 ultra marathon relays (126.2 miles)🏃♀️
These days, I’m an #orangetheoryfitness Coach 🍊, run an Airbnb and an STR consulting site, and help women ditch the diets and the yo-yo weight for-eh-vah! 🙌 Oh, and give me all the bubbles! 🥂
I love salsa dancing 💃, flying to pretty much any destination in the world ✈️, rooftop bars with friends 🍾, and riding horses 🐎. I try to be a plant-lady every spring 🌱, but the #nola summers get me every time. 😣😂
Every week I send an email to a little group of people with 5 of my very favorite things that I LOVE in the worlds of fitness/health/nutrition/personal development If you want to be on that list, too, go to the link in my bio and click the “My Favorite 5 Email” link!💌
I started this separate account as a way I could truly nerd 🧬 out with all of you about food, nutrition, weight loss (and the REALITY of what it’s really like) and the REAL facts and science behind how food and our bodies work (there’s a lot of crazy info out there, folks, stay alert!)😳
I’m here to support you in feeling better, having more energy, losing weight, and getting to a place where you never, ever, EVER have to think about the word diet again! I have my own long health journey to share with you along the way, so I hope you’ll stick around! I love giving you real answers about food and weight loss/nutrition, so please feel free to ask me ANYTHING!
Yes, yes, and YES! Nothing “defines” your worth, certainly not what your body looks like or what the scale says. The body that you’re in was given specifically to you for a reason… it’s your job to take care of it as best as you can and learn all the ways in which you have been specially gifted with the unique body you have. YOU get to set your value, sister. And, sister oh sister, I so deeply hope you have chosen to set it HIGH. Even if it defies all reason coming from your brain. Set. It. HIGH.
Today’s #crunchwrap brought to you by egg whites! Do you change it up I can go long streaks of time where I’ll have the same thing every day for weeks! (my husband hates it, so most of the time he’s the dinnertime chef 😜) I’ve been loving on this egg white crunchwrap for a while now. Today’s version had some garlic and pepper mixed in, and then a little @daiya mozzarella cheese sprinkled in and melted. And as always, I use Josephs lavash wrap since I can get an extra 10 grams of protein in one wrap! One of these babies can pack 50-60 grams of protein, so sometimes I might not finish it all at once, but I love knowing that it takes care of a huge chunk of my protein needs!
How often do you take time to celebrate and PLAY Here in New Orleans, we have ample opportunity to play, relax, and simple enjoy life. If you’re like me, sometimes it’s so hard to truly slow down, but our bodies NEED rest and relaxation. We were not made to be busy and stressed all the time. Prolonged stress can cause cortisol levels to rise making it harder to lose weight or see any difference in our progress. So breathe, rest, relax, play, celebrate, and for just a little bit, ditch all the things on your to do list.
These limes and lemons are not from my trees, but I reallllly hope I get one or two this year! What about you Do you grow any of your own fruits or veggies
What is your favorite form of exercise Take a sec, just think about it for a minute. Do you have it Ok good, because guess what That’s the PERFECT one for you!! While nutrition is by far the BIGGEST single contributor to weight loss and health, exercise is important too (and does help a liiiiiitle bit 😉). And the studies have all shown… the single best form of exercise is the one you enjoy the most and can do most consistently! That’s it! So WHATEVER it is, go do it, and have fun!
Fresh veggies... growing up I wouldn’t touch them with a 10 foot pole, but now I can’t get enough! What’s a veggie that you hated as a child but now you love
