Being a whole grain, popcorn strips off excess cholesterol from the walls of blood vessels and arteries, thereby reducing your overall cholesterol levels. But be careful of popcorn covered in excess amounts of butter, salt or artificial flavours!
Are you a rhubarb fan Me too! Rhubarb is packed with Vitamin C and the stalks are loaded in fibre – good for bowel health. Also high in antioxidants, rhubarb is so worthy of a spot in GF cakes and breakfast muffins. Or simply stewed and eaten with coconut yoghurt, nuts and honey. What’s your favourite way to get your rhubarb on ❤️

I posted and sent this week's meal plan earlier today, but couldn't completely move on until I highlighted this favorite from last week's plan! ♥️
This Grilled Chicken with Artichokes, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Feta from @andiemmitchell was not only a huge hit in our house, but I got some feedback from the meal plan babes that they loved it too! 👌🏽
Save this and make later. 💁🏻♀️ It is that good! Delicious flavors, so fast and easy...the only chopping you have to do is for the salad you're going to want to serve it with! Not one to be missed babes.
Also...if you are not on the meal plan, but want to be...send me a message and I can add you! Amazing recipes like this posted every week! 🔥 xo 💋
GRILLED CHICKEN WITH ARTICHOKES, SUN DRIED TOMATOES AND FETA
4 6-ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
3 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2/3 cup marinated artichoke hearts (from a jar packed in oil), drained of oil and roughly chopped
1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes (from a jar packed in oil), drained of oil and roughly chopped
2 ounces feta cheese (1/2 cup)
In a small bowl, whisk the cider vinegar, garlic, basil, oregano, oil, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into a gallon-size bag and add the chicken. Marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day, turning the bag occasionally.
Preheat your gas grill on high. When the grill is ready, remove the chicken from the bag and place on the grill. Cover and cook until the underside of the chicken is just beginning to develop light grill marks, 6 to 9 minutes. Flip the chicken, cover, and continue to cook 6 to 9 minutes longer.
Once the chicken is done, transfer the chicken to a plate, tent with foil, and let it rest for 5 minutes before topping with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, and crumbled feta.

Let’s talk hand sanitizer for a moment. Germs are ubiquitous and unavoidable and have the potential to make us very ill. With good intentions we carry our sanitizer around and slather our hands to kick those germs to the curb. We may have solved one problem 🖐🏻 but we’ve unknowingly created a whole other! Did you know that regular hand sanitizers contain the following:
•Sodium Laurel Sulfate
Triclosan (an endocrine disruptor) is said to linger on your skin for hours afterwards. Be clean AND be safe!! Always use the tried and true soap 🧼 and water 💦 combination when you can and when on the go I highly recommend @cleanwelltoday hand sanitizer!! 🙌

Recipe Down Below 👇⠀
8 oz cube steak, 4 steaks, 8 oz (225 g) each⠀
1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste⠀
1 teaspoon black pepper, plus more to taste⠀
2 large eggs⠀
2 ¾ cups whole milk, divided⠀
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, divided, plus 3 tablespoons⠀
1 teaspoon garlic powder⠀
1 teaspoon onion powder⠀
1 teaspoon paprika⠀
1 cup vegetable oil⠀
3 tablespoons unsalted butter⠀
½ cup heavy cream⠀
Preheat the oven to 225˚F (110˚C).⠀
Set a steak in the center of a cutting board and cover with a piece of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet, pound the steak evenly to ¼-inch (½ cm) thick. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Repeat with the remaining meat.⠀
In a wide, shallow dish, whisk together the eggs and 1 cup (240 ml) of milk. In a separate shallow dish, mix together the 1 ½ cups (190 g) of flour, pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika.⠀
Dredge the steaks in the flour mixture, then dip in the egg mixture, letting any excess egg drip off. Coat again in the flour mixture. Set aside for 10-15 minutes, until the coating has dried out a bit.⠀
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a 10-inch (25.5 cm) pan over medium-high heat until it reaches 375˚F (190˚C).⠀
Fry the steaks, 2 at a time, for 3 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Flip and cook on the other side for 3 minutes more, until golden brown and cooked through when the internal temperature reaches 155˚-165˚F (170˚-175˚C). Transfer the steaks to a paper towel-lined plate or baking sheet and immediately season with salt. Once all of the steaks are done frying, transfer to the oven while you prepare the gravy.⠀
Pour the hot oil into a heatproof bowl and let cool before discarding. 9. Leave any browned bits in the pan.⠀

BLUEBERRY BANANA MUFFINS - I eat these babies religiously and they are so good for you!! They look and taste like a treat 😛 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
1 1/2 whole wheat flour (any grain flour will work)
1/2 tsp of baking powder & baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 BROWN ripened bananas (the browner the sweeter)
1 whole egg
1/2 cup maple syrup (I use a little less than 1/2)
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup almond milk (any milk will do)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond (this is the secret ingredient, I add in a few extra drops 😉)
FIRST: Simply mix bananas, egg, & syrup until fully mashed together. Add coconut oil, milk, & extracts. Whisk the dry ingredients separately and add into wet mixture in two batches! Scoop some of the batter into a muffin tin each 1/4 full. Then fold in those clean blueberries into the remaining batter & scoop the rest into the muffin tin until all evenly distributed!! (This method will not allow the blueberries to sink to the bottom). LASTLY: Pop those bad boys in a 350° oven for about 10-12 minutes! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Cheers to my first real meal made in my apartment :,) 🥂!! I had such a fun weekend getting settled in and visiting with old friends and meeting new ones. I am so excited for this next chapter of my life. I truly feel Portland is the right place for me to be right now and it feels so good. Food wise, the healthy (and not so healthy😏😛) food options are literally ENDLESS here and I cannot wait to explore even more. Yesterday I picked up a package of soy-free tempeh from the @portlandstate Farmer’s Market and omg I am obsessed. I’m literally going to have to go back every week to get a new package because it’s THAT GOOD. I have also been trying to lower my animal product intake lately again and I have been enjoying trying out different proteins. This 🥡SESAME TEMPEH STIR-FRY🥡 hit the SPOT. I sautéed frozen cauli, broc🥦, carrots🥕 in @chosenfoods spicy sesame oil. Then I added fresh zucchini🥒, red onion, garlic, kale🌱, green onion and the tempeh and browned all the veggies. At the end I added in a @pfchangs sesame sauce (I’m all about that convenience factor lol) and there you have it! Topped with fresh basil and cilantro. Sooo good! Time to plan for a busy week ahead🤗. #onecrazedfoodie #stirfry #vegan #plantbased
Throwback to this dairy-free turkey & bacon sammie for lunch 🥪 Just gonna say that dairy-free cheese has made leaps and bounds since I was a kid, and there’s a lot of really good non-dairy alternatives now for people with allergies. I’ve been trying to minimize my dairy consumption since I am actually allergic and wanted to see how much impact it had on my body, and it’s made a world of difference. Occasionally, I decide to indulge in some dairy and it’s always painful and uncomfortable and a humbling reminder that some of us were just given allergies to what we love and life ain’t fair. Allergies aside, this sandwich was DELICIOUS. Paired with @zerboshealthfoods pita krunch chips, my absolute favorite. .

Plant-based Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe! 🌱 On the side: Roasted asparagus & corn 🌽. It was so good! 😋 INGREDIENTS:
1 package whole wheat pasta noodles
16 ounces baby portabella mushrooms sliced (or any mushroom you like)
1 medium yellow onion diced
1 Tbl tomato paste
1 Tbl fresh lemon juice
1 Tbl soy sauce
2 Tbl flour
2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 medium ripe avocado
1/3 cup raw cashews soaked for at least 30 minutes in hot water, or ¼ cup cashew butter
sea salt & pepper to taste
Water sauté the chopped onion until it starts to wilt. Add in the sliced mushrooms & sauté until the mushrooms have shrunk.
Bring a large pot of water to boil & cook the pasta according to the directions. Drain, set aside.
In a small container w/ lid, add about 3 Tbl. of the veggie broth w/ the 2 Tbl. of flour. Shake to combine. (to thicken the sauce).
While the mushrooms are cooking, add the cashews, avocado & about ½ cup of veggie broth to a high-powered blender. Blend until the sauce is smooth, scraping down the sides to make sure all of the cashew bits are incorporated. Add more broth if it's too thick.
Add the blended sauce, tomato paste, lemon juice, & soy sauce to the pan w/ the mushrooms & stir to combine.

This week’s lunch meal prep are my BBQ Chicken Salad Jars!!! Having these prepped and ready in the fridge makes it SO much easier to eat healthy during our crazy work/school/sports days! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Layer: BBQ Chicken (I made mine in the air fryer and it came out perf 👌🏼), black beans (drained and rinsed), @traderjoes frozen roasted corn (defrosted), red bell pepper, tomatoes, carrots, cilantro, purple onion, romaine, mixed greens, and TJ’s unexpected white cheddar. I’m going to use @bolthousefarms Ranch that I’ll keep on the side. When I’m ready to eat, I’ll add dressing, shake it up, and pour onto a plate. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
PS- how cute are the colorful mason jar lids that I got from @thegoodsmall! I used white lids for my hubs jars since he doesn’t like tomatoes (weirdo 😜). •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

guysssss this is quite possibly the easiest thing in the world to make- 🍇🍓HOMEMADE CHIA JAM 🥜🍇has zero added sugar, takes about 10 minutes, and is literally just berries, chia seeds, and a lil bit of lemon juice. Now you can enjoy a homemade chunky jam without all the added sugar and gelatin agents!! The chia seeds in this give the fruit a gelatinous texture so this recipe is 100% natural
Recipe: - 🍇2 cups of any berry you like, my favs are bluebs, currants, and raspberries (fresh or frozen- if frozen, let defrost) - 🍋2 tsp lemon juice - 2-3 tablespoons chia seeds - optional: 1 tbsp stevia
Instructions: - Put berries in a pot over medium-high heat until they become mushy (mash them with a potato masher as they heat up) - once berries are mushy, add chia seeds and lemon juice. Stir until slightly thick, then allow to cool for ~30 minutes!
" Did you know that your zip code is more important than your genetic code in determining your health and chance of disease"
I spent this Sunday grocery shopping and food prepping for the week. Each week as I purchase my fresh produce and meat, I am aware of how fortunate I am have a refrigerator full of healthy food.
Through my own personal experience and my continuation of education in health coaching, I am knowledgable and aware of the power of food to heal and truly be medicine. However, there are many in this country who do not have the luxury of purchasing quality food.
There are individuals in this country who often are faced with $50 lasting them a week that includes feeding a family of four, utility bills and hopefully gas for the car. That amount means limited food choices which are typically processed packaged foods which are cheaper and able to feed more. Research shows that processed food can lead to and perpetuate illnesses such as diabetes and obesity.
I share this tonight not as a way to make any of us feel guilty but to make us aware of the food discrepancies in this country. Processed food has been developed to make us crave more of it and if that is all one can afford, the cycle continues.
My hope is with more communities confronting the food deserts by introducing community gardens and farmers' markets there will become more individuals who have the opportunity that I have.
Please let me know if there’s a more satisfying feeling than when your avo PERFECTLY BREAKS IN HALF...MY GOD HAPPY SUNDAY🥑🥑🥑🥑

Alright guys, I made this a couple of times now & it’s a new fav. Plus it’s super easy.
Alllll you got to do is:
Dice up a pint of strawberries, two kiwis, one granny smith. Add a 1/4 c. of sugar I used coconut sugar & squeeze in a half of a lemon. Serve with some cinnamon chips & boom, you have a refreshing dessert. 🍓🍋
