MODERATION

Life is about moderation! 🍓 No this isn’t my breakfast but it’s a perfect example of balance. Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed. You should never feel like you can’t go somewhere because of our diet or can’t relax on vacation because you’re so worried about staying “on track”. For me life became so much healthier AND enjoyable when I loosened up the reins on food and found a healthy balance! Your body and your mind will thank you 💖

Pantry Staples

I recently moved, and realized how much I rely on my kitchen for a healthy lifestyle. Since I had to start from scratch and re-build my kitchen, I figured it was a great time to share with you some of my essentials for a healthy kitchen…

Essential One: Coconut oil Spray! I literally brought coconut oil spray from the Trader Joe’s near me to make sure I had this stocked in my apartment. I use it constantly. Ever since learning that baking olive oil at high temperatures can be bad for your health, I’ve switched to coconut oil and absolutely love it.

Essential Two: Sweet Spices. I can never get enough cinnamon, I put it on everything from apples, to Greek yogurt, to oatmeal, to my smoothies. I also love pumpkin pie spice, ginger, and nutmeg.

Essential Three: Savory Spices. These have always been key in any time of meal I make. I put red pepper flake on anything and everything, and love to make a taco seasoning for ground turkey. Some of my favorites include paprika, chili powder, sea salt, black pepper, and basil.

Essential Four: Sriacha. Ever since I tried hot sauce I haven’t looked back. It can make the blandest of meals amazing. I love it on eggs, chicken, brown rice, vegetables…pretty much anything.

Essential Five: Gluten Free Soy Sauce or Coconut Aminos One of my favorite ways to eat my veggies is mixed with this. I actually have trouble always finding gluten free soy sauce and coconut aminos so I make sure to stock up when I can find them! 

Essential Six: Natural Sweeteners Organic honey and stevia are my favorite. They are the perfect addition to Greek yogurt, coffee, or tea and must haves in my kitchen.
