Are you literally ALWAYS hungry?

  1. Eat enough greens/minerals: I’ve talked about this a lot but you would be surprised how much volume and how filling veggies can be. Plus, mineral rich foods can be really filling for a low calorie count. Not to mention minerals are SO good for you!:)
  2. Eat enough fiber: Fiber is very filling that’s why oatmeal is going to more filling than snickers or oat bran is more filling than oatmeal. Try increasing your fiber slowly and see how you feel.
  3. Sugar Balance: Eating to much sugary foods (even fruits) can make you crave more sugar but on the other token if you don’t eat enough sugar in your diet it can lead to lots of cravings. So just take a glance at your intake now and evaluate:)
  4. Is your diet working for you?: Sometimes to find a diet that fits with your taste buds and lifestyle choices you have to experiment. Do you like your food? Are you eating too much or too little? So many factors to look at, which is why there are like a million different diets out there.
  5. Intermittent Fasting: If you don’t have a history of food issues you can try intermittent fasting. It’s definitely not for everyone but it shortens your eating time but it allows you to eat more just in a shorter time.
  6. Cravings: Are you really craving certain foods. Maybe you need to just give in. Sometimes having that cookie or whatever it is will satisfy in a way no other food can. On the other hand is there a substitute you can make. Acknowledging your hunger and cravings will really help your satisfaction:)
  7. Not a Good Balance of Macros: If you eat to much or to little of something this can drastically affect your hunger. Try switching around the types of foods you are eating and see if that helps (i.e. more/less protein, more/less carbs, etc.).
  8. Calorie Restricting: If you don’t eat enough or set goals that are to tough right now you really can set yourself up for insatiable hunger or binges later on.
  9. Healthy Weight: If you aren’t at a healthy weight your body may increase your hunger drive to protect you and bring you back into balance. Being at healthy weight, especially as a female, is very important.
Beauty Detox Power by Kimberly Snyder is a great book if this topic interests you!     Beauty Detox
I hope this helps! I know first hand how tough this can be and these tips helped me. I was just coming out of being very sick and underweight and couldn’t get full no matter how much I had.
Emotions can also play a huge roll in this so I will do a follow up post on that:)
Have a GREAT day!

How to support your thyroid (vegans approved ✌🏼️)

This seems to be a super hot topic right now and I wanted to give tips based on my research.

1. Eat carbs. This is soooo important low carb diets are proven to affect the thyroid.

2. Eat a balanced plate. Protein/carbs/fats… Monitor ironman imbalances will affect the health of your thyroid.

3. Take iodine. I think most people know this but a key thing to know is nascent iodine is the best kind to take and makes a world of a difference.

4. Low stress exercise….. Think walking, yoga, pilates, or something like Piyo which is great if you need something lower stress but love to workout.

5. Take an herbal supplement to support the thyroid. See my favorites here  and here.

I hope this helps and if you have any tips for others leave them below👇🏼.

Plant Based Calcium: Follow up to post on Bone/Teeth Post

In follow up to the post on keeping up the health of your bones and teeth I wanted to provide 20 sources of calcium on a plant based lifestyle. ❤

1. Kale (1 cup-180mg): Make kale chips…Recipe coming soon;)

2. Collard Greens (1 cup-350 mg): Try to cook it in some coconut oil or juice it.

3. Blackstrap Molasses (2 Tbs-400mg): This stuff is amazing and is also a great source of so many minerals. Loni Jane is a huge fan. I would have it in the morning with some sort of citrus to get the iron benefits as well.

4. Tempeh (1c-215mg): This stuff is great in a stir fry.

5. Turnip Greens (1c-250mg): I would juice these.

6. Non-Dairy Milk (1c-200 to 300mg): I LOVEEEE this stuff. I use it with anything.

7. Tahini (1c-130mg): Use as a salad dressing. It is really good, but bitter I would combine it with lemon.

8. Great Northern Beans(1c-120mg): I would put it in a salad or stir fry.

9. Broccoli (1c-95mg): Steamed with a dash of olive oil and sea salt, mmmm.

10. Dates (1/2c-35mg): So tasty and super sweet, use them any which way.

There is so many more, but I wanted to highlight a few and give some ideas how to use them.

What’s your favorite on the list?

Have a great day guys! ❤ ❤ ❤
