Finally sharing these chocolate coconut bliss bars that i’ve been making on repeat over here😍 they have been perfect for an easy snack & only made with 5 ingredients🙌🏻 plus, they are sweetened naturally with dates & that’s it💯I’m thinking maybe next time a drizzle of chocolate on top though!?😏 I love having raw bars or bites to have in the fridge for the week✨ recipe linked in my bio & I’ll be sharing in my stories how I made them! happy hump day☀️
Back in the days when I would go to random workout classes or wander the gym- I never really understood why anyone would use supplements. I thought they were all full of chemicals and that people used them for show rather than to actually fuel their body.
Then came the day where I figured out what it really means to be committed to exercise. And in that, I found out that if I wanted to get the results I wanted (lean muscle), I needed more protein and nutrition than I could eat on my own... or more than I wanted to pay in a visit to Huckleberries.
I learned that after every exercise I need to be fueling my body with protein, BCAA’s help rebuild muscle and aid in muscle fatigue, pre-workout can fuel my body with the amount of energy & endurance needed to execute a good workout, superfoods & adaptogens help fuel my body across the board- endocrine, mentally, immune system, gut, skin.
If I want my body to be strong like an athlete- I should be fueling it like one. And not with shitty products- I would rather stay away from anything synthetically made and seek out companies who have high standards for their products.
So, there you have it. Some of the secret sauce to my workout routine.
Having a clean Gut is changing the game for me. When is the last time you gave your gut a reboot? So much of disease and illness actually starts in our gut. Because 90% of your serotonin is stored in your gut. Are you ready to stop letting disease win? #fuelyourbody#livewell#guthealth
Electrolytes ⚡️Your body is an intricate circuit board of electrical charges and impulses and uses minerals to conduct electrical energy.
In today’s society, mineral imbalances are becoming increasingly common. More significant imbalances can lead to over excitability of the nervous system such as muscle cramping & twitching (especially under the eye), anxiety, irritability, heart palpitations, food cravings, general fatigue, and extreme thirst.
ConcenTrace is a full spectrum complex of trace minerals that has been made by Mother Nature in the same proportion as healthy human fluids and sourced from the Great Salt Lake in Utah.
While NUUN is a popular electrolyte replacement option, it is inferior to the full-spectrum profile that comes from nature.
NUUN Hydration: Sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, sweeteners (dextrose, stevia, monk fruit), natural flavor, citric acid, beet juice powder (color).
ConcenTrace Trace Mineral Drops: 72 naturally occurring ionic minerals and trace elements including sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, silicon, selenium, phosphorus, iodine, chromium, manganese, iron, copper, molybdenum, zinc, and vanadium.
Ideally, minerals should come from a balanced whole food diet. However, even eating a nutrient dense diet isn’t enough since our soils have been depleted of minerals. Therefore, if it’s not in the soil, it’s not in the food.
While drinking purified, reverse osmosis is great for removing chlorine, fluoride, and pharmaceutical metabolites form our drinking water, it also removes beneficial minerals.
Minerals give our water charge and allow our bodies to better absorb fluid. Do you have issues absorbing water? Are you excessively thirsty even after drinking lots of water? Try adding some “charge” to your water.
Most of us know that sweating, while great for purging the body of unwanted toxins, also gets rid of precious electrolytes. Therefore, excessive sweating from exercise, hot yoga, or sauna use, requires higher needs for electrolyte/trace mineral consumption. Opt out of Gatorade and make your own sports drink with coconut water, ConcenTrace, sea salt
Know what adaptogens do?
They help your body adapt and respond to daily stress! Stress causes a shift in your hormones and adaptogens work to maintain a hormonal balance.
So if you’re constantly stressed, your body responds negatively to that. But investing adaptogens helps your body look and feel it’s best, even when you’re stressed!
This shake I have everyday includes adaptogens, and probiotics, and probiotics, and more. Just saying....

how many ways is too many ways to enjoy this DAIRY-FREE CREAMY CASHEW SAUCE 🤷🏻♀️ round three tonight (after gigantic bowls of mac n’ cheese and just straight up scooped into some crunchy cassava chips) tonight, I’ve mixed into some more chickpea noodles with sautéed zucchini slices, bell peppers, onions and shiitake mushrooms. oh, and those juicy tender scallops on top 🙌🏻 I can’t even handle! Hope everyone have a lovely long “cheesy” weekend! 😆 Xx #thenaturallynatalie
safe to say that brussels sprouts have become one of my favorite vegetables 🍽🥬🍅🌽🥦 although I prefer them crispy and roasted in the oven, I just steamed these in the microwave with salt and pepper and they were still delicious 💚🧡 ~ DEETS: egg whites, broccoli, brussels, @morningstarfarms maple veggie sausage patties, arugula, grape tomatoes, sriracha and some EBTB (of course 🙌🏼)
Home made coconut yogurt in the instant pot w/o the yogurt button💫
The base of this recipe I found in the ketotarian book I posted about yesterday.
The recipe 👇🏻
•2 cans of full fat coconut milk (I like to use the Thai Kitchen brand)
•1 tbsp agar flakes
•2 probiotic capsules taken apart
•Combine milk & agar flakes in the instant pot. Set the pot to sauté, bring mixture to a boil. Using a sterilized utensil whisk until the agar flakes are dissolved.
•Once the mixture has boiled & reaches 180F, turn the pot off.
•Allow the mixture to cool to 110F to 115F to allow for fermentation.
•When the milk has cooled, break apart the capsules & add the probiotic powder to the pot, stir with a wooden spoon. Metal will deactivate the probiotic.
•If you have the yogurt button it sets it to the ideal temperature for fermentation.
•If you don’t have the yogurt button, after you add the probiotic, close the lid & wrap the instant pot in a towel. Place somewhere warmish in your house (not near a window). Allow to ferment for 24 hours. If you want a more tangy sour like tasting yogurt, leave longer. When it’s done it should smell tangy and the consistency should be like yogurt! I like mine more sour so I can use it as a thickener in sauces. If you want it to be sweet you can add whatever sweetener you want before or after the fermentation.

My reflection from todays run (I had 2h to think😂) .
I like to compare our bodies to a car. Both are designed to move! But in order to do that we need to take a good care of both.
. When the car isn't used and it's not taken care off, it will just get rusty and break. Same our bodies if we would end up just lying down and not moving. The muscles will get weaker and eventually they will lose their function. Driving a short distances isn't also the best for a car's engine. Same for our body, it need a little bit more movement. There is so many forms of exercise. If you haven't found one you like, just keep trying. You will find one you love! Run, Cycle, Swim, Dance, Lift, Climb go to a fitness class, we can help you to find something you love @fitnesssoul.co.uk
The car needs some maintenance: changing oils and other bits reguraly. Same as us we need to trigger our brains and bodies with new things in order to keep our mental and physical health.
. If we put bad quality petrol and oils in the car, it will not last long and will not run smooth! If you put high octane in your car it will run smoother and get better gas mileage. Same our bodies! If we fuel our bodies with healthy foods high in nutrients, it will respond by functioning more efficiently!
There is never too late to introduce some healthier habbits in order to feel better.
You can buy new car but you can't buy new body.

Protein Waffle Sandwich 🤤
My 2nd attempt & fail, turned in to an epic #win. Still need to figure out how they won’t stick 🤣 Ancient waffle maker maybe? Or I didn’t spray enough?! Anyways, I added 1/2 banana inside, and topped with berries and agave syrup 😍 The most delicious post-spin breakfast! Check my story for what I used. Ps I never measure anything lol Just like my Mama T! #obsessed#veganprotein#glutenfree#arbonne30#healthyliving#fuelyourbody
Are you team #thinandcrispy or #thickandchewy when it comes to cookies 🤔 I’m a fan of both, I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like😏 Baking these was actually a mental struggle. I had the strongest urge to binge, and had to keep leaving the kitchen. But, I was able to slow down and think about what the consequences would be and whether that would be worth it…I’ve never been that self-aware and conscious so this is a big deal for me☺️ I was able to enjoy one, and be satisfied. I tweaked the original recipe a little so I’ll leave how I made them below. Have a good day everyone!🤩
dEATS: @melismonstercookies Cashewlicious cookie mix + 1/3 cup of water + 1/2 cup of peanut butter + 1 egg + 3 T of @cbdsuperfood Dark Chocolate CBD Ghee + a splash of pure vanilla extract + a dash of cinnamon // Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix everything together and let it chill in the fridge until your oven is ready. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, scoop out 1-2 inch sized balls of dough, with at least 2 inches of space in between. Be careful, these WILL spread out! Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool before removing from the sheet and enjoying! This made 18 cookies for me🌟

Courage + Confidence + Self Esteem (Body Talk)
This was my first bottle of young living oil—sweetly gifted to me by my friend. Ironically, I had no idea that the changes we were embarking upon for the health & wellbeing of our family, would benefit me the most, almost immediately!
Hands up if you have ever lacked courage, confidence & self esteem? Yeah, me neither ;-) Despite having a loving family growing up, I sadly allowed a lack of confidence & low self esteem to rule my life as a young woman resulting in an eating disorder & an extremely unhealthy obsession with body image. Though this is so far in my past I can talk about it today, I know that for others, it is not such a distant memory & you are battling it out everyday. Even now, developing a sense of self worth & self value is a continuous & upward climb for me in different areas of my life. (Told you I’m an open book!) & honestly, men, I am so aware of how this affects you just as much as women. ~
Firstly let me say that there is no shame in taking medicine for mental health as will I say that seeking out people to talk to such as a therapist will go a long way in over-coming mental disorders or challenging times in life. Don’t do it alone.
Enter VALOR ~ so how does it work? How will it support me emotionally?
+ essential oils can penetrate cell membranes & cross the brain-blood barrier within SECONDS. This allows them to reach the emotional center of our brain, where all of our emotions are stored.
+the limbic system of the brain is primarily responsible for our emotional life & also controls functions including adrenaline flow, behavior, motivation, long-term memory, & olfaction.
+our olfactory (smell) sense is almost directly connected to the limbic system, meaning simply inhaling essential oils can have an immediate & profound effect.
It took me a couple of weeks of simply rolling it on my wrists a few times a day to realize that I hadn’t been having the emotional dips I was so prone to having in the middle of the day. A renewed sense of vibrancy, purpose and confidence has even led me to share this today! ~

Double tap if you’re an avocado fan! 🥑💥 .
One way to improve your health is to lean on foods that are nutrient dense, and few are as nutrient dense as avocado (which is one reason I call them a Genius Food). 🥑
Not written on my graphic, avocados are also a natural source of glutathione. An avocado's glutathione levels averages about 8.4 mg per 30 g or 19 mg per one-half fruit. This is several fold higher than the glutathione content of other fruits. Glutathione is not only a very important bodily antioxidant, most of which we make ourselves, but dietary glutathione may serve a unique purpose—reducing oxidative stress for your gut bacteria. This is a theory, but might explain some of the health benefits observed in consumers of foods which contain glutathione (mushrooms are another source).
🤔 I love to have my avocado in salads, with eggs, and just straight out of the skin “shell” with some salt sprinkled on top. What’s your favorite way to incorporate avocado into your diet? Let me know. 👇🏼

Hemp seeds are technically a nut and typically referred to as hemp hearts. They are easily digestible by most, have a mild nut flavor, and are very versatile. The nutritional value provided by hemp seed is high; they have a considerable amounts of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, rich in essential amino acids, and about 25% protein. Hemp seed oil is high in polyunsaturated fatty acids and the essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-3) and alpha-linoleic acids (omega-6). Hemp seeds blend well into a creamy yogurt, make a great hemp nut butter, add a nutty flavor to salads, smoothies, or soups, and make a great nut milk too! Add a little hemp seeds to your meal for a little extra nutrient boost!
Hemp Yogurt recipe:
1 cup Hemp seeds
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. maple syrup
4 tbsp. coconut oil
2/3 cup water
