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!

5 Ways to Cleanse Your Liver Daily

Ahhh, your liver. 

That hard working little organ does SO much for you. It’s the reason all the toxic crap-ola doesn’t hurt you all the time. Too many of us are doing things that hurt the livers abilities to do its job (detox and much more). Also, if your not detoxing your skin will probably not be clear. If your support your liver you will definitely notice a difference in your skin as well. 

Here are five ways to daily help out your liver: 

1. Take a liver support supplement.  BY FAR my favorite is Healthforce Liver 5+. Very high quality and all herbal. 

2. Eat a healthy amount of fat. I don’t mean restrict it but eat plant based fats and eat it in portion size. 

3. Exercise, saunas, steam rooms…. Sweat, get other methods of detox working. 

4. Drink liver support teas and herbal drinks made with milk thistle, dandelion, etc. 

5. Lastly, eat more dandelion. I know it’s reallyy bitter but you totally get used to it. Juice it, blend it, massage it with olive oil/sea salt/ avocado. Last tip for dandelion is just use a little bit at a time. 

I hope this helps! 

What do you do daily to support your liver? ❤️❤️❤️💋

7 Ways to Eat Zucchini (Helpful!) + A Smoothie Trick

Here are ten ways to eat zucchini that can add volume/replace other foods so you can get more veggies🙉.

1. Zoats: I am are you’ve heard of this one but add shredded zucchini to your oatmeal it adds a lot of volume!

2. “Bread”: You can do one of two thing here. One you can take a zucchini, cut it in half long ways and than add avocado or what ever then out it back together like a sandwich. Two, cut in two long pieces with a mandoline to resemble bread.

3. Fries: Cut in pieces long ways like fries, drizzle coconut oil, bake @ 350 until crispy and then take them out add sea salt. This is soooooo good!

4. Tempura: Cut zucchini in pieces long ways again, lightly too in coconut oil, on the side have a bowl of coconut flour/almond flour and sea salt, proceed to dip the zucchini in the flour mixture. Bake @ 350.

5. Low Sugar Smoothies: Freeze zucchini in chunks. Once frozen you can add them to smoothies. It makes it so creamy. Plus you add tons of volume. This is definitely the one I use most commonly.

6. Guacamole: When food processing all your ingredients for guacamole half the amount of avocado and add lots of zucchini. You get the taste of guacamole but more volume!

7. Pasta: This is another one you’ve probably heard of but spirailize your zucchini’a to make noodles then add your favorite sauces!

What is one you are definitely gonna try! List below❤️

With love and lots of zuchinni’s!

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👇🏼.

10 Tips for IBS

Someone on my instagram was talking about their struggle with IBS and I wanted to give my top ten tips to help. 

There is two types IBS-D(diarrhea) and IBS-C (constipation). So I will be making those differences for each point. This post will be similar to my post on gastropersis but I wanted to give it its own post. 

1. Watch your stress levels around food! IBS is largely triggered by stress, so stressing over what/how/when you should eat will make it largely worse. Practice praying before a meal, light a candle, listen to music, if you’re eating a food you think is “off plan” “unhealthy” or “to high calorie” then find the benefits of that food and use it as an affirmation of sorts. 

2. Avoid dairy best you can. If you can’t for any which reason, try using Bulgarian yogurt or Kiefer (both have a lot of probiotics). 

3. Take a probiotic. This is honestly the best thing. You can add raw sauerkraut too. The best one is a strain know as Saccharonyces Boullardii which goes straight to our small intestine which is where 95% of digestion takes place.  

4. For IBS-D try adding carob to your diet. It helps regulate digestion. 

5. For IBS-C try adding health force movement formula. It works.  Follow the instructions. This is great at all times but especially during a flare.  

6. Avoid artificial sweetners!!! Eat the real food. 

7. Try add raw honey/apple cider vinegar/dash cayenne tonics to your day. 

8. This comes from Chinese medicine, try chewing fennel seeds before your meals. I know this tastes bad but it helps. 

9. Drink enough water throughout the day! Don’t chug but make sure your getting enough. Set goals and add a little more everyday. If you hate water try flavoring it.  

10. Lastly see a GI specialist and make sure it’s not something more severe. This is so important and worth the money.  They can give you more tips too based on your unique situation.  

I sincerely hope these help.
