GoodLife Nutrition

GoodLife Nutrition LLC is an Integrative Nutrition practice based in Ashburn, VA and online.

GoodLife Nutrition LLC was founded by Angela Mari, an Integrative Nutrition Coach. Angela's master's degree studies are in Human Clinical Nutrition & Integrative Health. In 2018, she will be seeking board certification as a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS).

GoodLife Nutrition LLC was inspired by the need for a return to the basic principals of good health: whole food, restorative sleep, physical movement, fulfilling work, and loving relationships. These principals aren’t innovative, but the rise in chronic disease suggests that they may have been forgotten. While the principals of good health set a strong foundation for a nutrition practice, what makes GoodLife Nutrition LLC unique is the integration of these principals with evidence-based research, biochemical individuality, and behavior-change support. Each client of GoodLife Nutrition LLC receives → An in-depth nutritional assessment → A personalized nutrition and lifestyle plan → Health education → Behavior-change support We believe in helping people harness healthy behavior and the therapeutic value of whole foods to heal and thrive. Avoid the frustration of navigating your complex symptoms and health history alone. Call (703) 679-7958 or e-mail [email protected] to schedule a free 15-minute introduction phone call to learn more.

Mission: We believe in helping people harness healthy behavior and the therapeutic value of whole foods to heal and thrive.

Another wild event with fellow #nova #smallbusinessowner at 4tunato’s Thirsty Thursday. Building community relationships are part of building a holistic healthy life, my friends. Honored to be part of new connections 🧡

Four Filipino dishes in one afternoon, thanks to my mama @nurse.erla
🍛Tocho: Fried fish & bean curd in black bean sauce
🍛Minanok: Cubed beef w mustard greens
🍛Ginisang dahon nang kalabasa: Pumpkin leaves in coconut milk
🍛Ginisang ampalaya sa itlog: Bitter melon w egg

If you jump into my stories today 4/14, hear mom talk about bitter melon & diabetes. I’ll make a highlight too if anyone misses is.

This is my I-LOVE-my-job-but-am-so-glad-it’s-Friday face. What does your Friday face look like, friends?

After a couple weeks of breakfast sandwiches & then 2 more of granola/berries/nut milk, I’m slowly starting to tone down the sugar in our breakfasts. Soft-boiled egg + breakfast meat + veg is my MO, but I’ll be exploring other easy low-sugar breakfasts. (FYI, I’m not giving up my AM “coffee” sweetened with 1/2 honey 1/2 maple. Doesn’t have to be 0 or 100%...all shades of health welcome.)

A very good morning to you, my friends! I had an absolutely fantastic birthday weekend...which, for me, includes all the food indulgences 🤗 on Sunday morning, Brad picked up everything we needed to make salmon Benedict...is that what you call this? >>> smoked salmon + runny egg + hollandaise sauce (lemon, egg yolk, butter) + capers + spinach on top on an English muff with a side of bacon. Yea...it was 🙌🏼. So tell me...what does your birthday breakfast look like?

Happy Valentines Day to my friends better late than never! Yesterday was one of my busiest days in clinic to date & Brad fell down 1 stair & severely sprained his ankle...so we’re running on love & fumes. This photo shows the different dilutions of beet juice I mixed to get those beautiful shades of pink. I hope your Valentine’s Day was full of love, whether it be love with another or love for yourself. I know I love you.

On a damp February morning that whispers of a sunny day to come... Breakfast boasts @lundbergfarms rice cakes topped w eggs, sriracha, cilantro & bacon w a side of cast iron kale. But the real star of the show is my Rembo 🐱

Last week, we wanted sandwiches again, but had been feeling a little “ehhh” from all the holiday indulging. Figured nori could hold together more than sushi stuffings, so we filled it with our sandwich stuffings. 1) On top of a sheet of seaweed, layer turkey slices, 2) then cream cheese, 3) then seasonings, 4) then cucumber. 5) Roll & enjoy.

Manigong bagong taon! “Prosperous new year!” My mom’s side of the family (the Filipino side) is rich with tradition, especially around the New Year. I had to pester mom to share these things with me in adulthood, since I was raised Seventh-Day Adventist, and these traditions were considered superstitious. Now as a woman, I yearn to walk the steps of my elders. Here are some of these traditions Brad & I have brought into our celebrations: 1) Round fruit on the table & in the belly on NYE for abundance, 2) wear polka dots for prosperity, 3) fill our pockets with coins to jingle at midnight for prosperity, 4) pancit on NYD, again, for prosperity. What are your NYE traditions?

How to Get Rid of Monday Anxiety

Sarah of the Autoimmune Tribe was so generous to answer my question about Monday anxiety & task management. Thank you for all your support, Sarah!

I had the honor of attending @thedrswolfson ‘s #holistic #hearthealth seminar yesterday. One pearl that really stuck out to me was his description of some chronic conditions as “sun-deficiency syndrome.” Think of leaky gut, PSP, hypertension... I’m going to be diving into the research this week as I incorporate safe sun work into my protocols. Important note about yesterday: I went to dinner w Dr. Wolfson & a small group, and we both ordered the scallops. Am I saying he’s my twin? No. But I’m not saying he’s not.

Shredded Brussels Sprout Bacon Salad with Warm Cider Vinaigrette. - Half Baked Harvest

Wayyyy overdue to start vetting Thanksgiving recipes, but this one looks yum.

halfbakedharvest.com This shredded brussels sprout bacon salad has quickly become one of my favorites. It's quick, festive, and so delicious. Shredded brussels sprouts, nutty manchego cheese, toasted hazelnuts, and juicy pomegranates, all tossed with a warm cider vinaigrette that's sweet and tangy. Every bite is burstin...

I tried @hormonebalance ‘s Brown Rice Chicken Congee recipe for the first time today. I love the ease of the recipe, and there’s very little seasoning...which leaves room to change it up each meal with different toppings. Today I added the suggested bok choy & sesame oil, but I also browned freshly minced garlic (anti-microbial) & @ninjasquirrelsriracha (just yum). #lunchwithangela or could be #dinnerwithangela

I haven’t really been on the mat for almost a year. Months & months of the absence of self-care came to a head last week, so now I’m going back to the basics: Nourishing food, healing sleep & meditation/yoga. I have only been able to do guided meditations until today, but since I have an unusually light Thursday with @ghhcenter move, I gave myself permission to take an hour for Day 1. Yes, I’m stiff. No, I can’t move like I used to, but hell...even this fumbling is part of the therapy. Thank you to @insighttimer for the guided meditation, @_kristinamatskevich for this morning’s practice & my LSW @brandon.wright87 for tough love & making me act. • What do you do to renew your mind & body after a burn-out?

Effects of Sleep Loss on Weight Gain

We've always known that sleep can affect weight gain, and now we're measuring tissue-specific changes 😮

info.bioticsresearch.com For a number of reasons, sleep loss has been associated with weight gain whether it’s because of an increase in appetite due to hormonal imbalances or craving sugar-laden products to stay awake. Few studies, however, have focused on underlying tissue-specific molecular responses to acute sleep los...

What to do when all you want is a greasy meatball sub 🤔 This may not be a “perfect meal,” but sometimes small changes yield beautiful results. ✔️Open-faced ✔️Lower glycemic 🍞 choice (sourdough) ✔️ freshly grated, raw parm ✔️generous topping of fresh parsley ✔️half plate of veg no matter what - ours was zucchini sautéed in ghee & freshly pressed garlic.

Portrait of a happy man. Brad spent the day in Hampden, Baltimore while I tackled Day 3 of the #expoeast2018. We met up afterwards at @bluepitbbq , which is a BBQ & whiskey joint = Brad’s heaven. Their vinegar-based Chesapeake Pickleback Coleslaw is such a refreshing pair to heavier meats.

Over the next several weeks, you’ll see stories of my experiences with the products I was introduced to this past weekend at the #expoeast2018 by @natprodexpo, but in line with my friend Dana’s recent IG story, the REAL TREASURE was in the connections I made with other women in my field. Private practice & online work can feel extremely isolating, and it felt so good knowing that I’m not the only one with these feelings. 🌻I met Aimee @theakkitchen in grad school at @muihealth, so she’s one of my “older” friends, but I feel like our time together this year took our friendship to the next level. We shared our deepest truths, and I haven’t felt such a rooted connection in a long time. 🌻I also met Dana @realfoodwithdana at @muihealth, but our friendship really started in earnest as we planned our attendance at last year’s expo. Her work inspires many meals in my home, and I’m so excited that she’s moving to one of my old stomping grounds. 🌻Aimee introduced me to Lauren @flora_and_vino at last year’s expo, and I’ve been stalking her IG ever since - it made our reintroduction this year all the more exciting. She’s a fellow #nova resident, so look out for our weekend Whole Foods dates! @ Baltimore Convention Center

Football season is quickly becoming my favorite season. It’s incredible to see how the human body performs & repairs when given the tools & attention. I’m on the edge of my seat, boys! Get it! #footballwithangela

Spent a few minutes of QT with Shelly today, fellow #loudouncountybusiness owner and lifelong friend (going on 10 years). While I mainly post about food here, I don’t think it’s misplaced to talk about feeding other aspects of our lives: Our friendships, business networks, communities, romantic relationships, etc. I’ll admit that I need this reminder more than anyone🙋🏻‍♀️ How do you feed these important areas of your life?

Shelly @loveofgray owns @abichfinancial with her husband Abe. I worked with them through grad school and still haven’t left my most precious side hustle.

For those of you who don’t know me, I founded GoodLifeNutrition in 2017 and practice in Loudoun & Fauquier counties.

August - October is the year’s second fig season, “new wood” season. I love this fall fruit because you can have it as a sweet or savory snack. What’s more...it’s rich in potassium, manganese & fiber.

Today’s snack: Slice fresh figs into halves or fourths. Top with crumbled goat cheese, honey drizzle, fresh chocolate mint leaves (thank you @farmladynutrition ) & Himalayan sea salt. @ Reston, Virginia

When I signed my contract with @asi_nova, I had no idea that sports nutrition would become my lifeblood. @jordanreed_86 was the 1st NFL football player I ever worked with...and the rest is history. I’m so proud of his dedication to health & excellence as well as his humble & kind spirit. I’m going to have an exciting & nerve wracking season watching Jordan kill it on the field 💪🏼

#mealprepsunday in the fading afternoon light...
1) Flank steak cooked in 🥑 oil seasoned w @traderjoes Chili Lime seasoning, onions & black pepper.
2) Rice & black beans combined & cooked in the dirty cast iron skillet from #1 above, season to taste.
3) Summer squash cooked in butter, salt & pepper to taste.
4) @traderjoes spicy guacamole.
What’s in YOUR #lunchbox ??

Brad & I have always had a hard time finding heart-pumping, sweaty activities we both like bc of his “duck” foot & the fact that I’m a sh*tty biker. If you also follow my personal account, you’ll know that we’ve been testing the waters with hiking...and now we’re hooked. We’ve moaned & groaned about living in #nova, so I’m thrilled to find something I love with abandon here in my new-ish home. I’ll be posting story highlights of our hiking adventures if you’d like to check back for cool places to go. What got your blood pumping this weekend? @ Scott's Run Nature Preserve

It was a beautiful day on the Potomac. I had a wonderful weekend to energize me for the week to come. A digestive health workshop on Saturday and a life-changing hike this Sunday morning. What did you all get into this weekend, and what great things are planned for the short work week?

Today we turned to a family healing tradition 👉🏼 Mom soothes all sorts of sicknesses with Arroz Caldo, and now I make it to soothe the stomach this weekend. This is a traditional Filipino dish loaded with garlic, ginger & rice cooked down to nearly a porridge. What has your family used to soothe a sour stomach & case of irritable bowels?

My colleague & mentor Gina sent the team a simple & lovely pesto recipe: Lemon balm, parsley, garlic & EVOO. And what’s better is that two of the ingredients are from her own garden 💚. @liftingmars & I are using the pesto over chicken & zoodles tonight. Maybe I won’t need to take my sleep supplements tonight...with all the lemon balm 😴 Gainesville Holistic Health Center GHHCenter Whole Nutritional Health

I’m so blessed to have been included in a day in paradise making flower essences with June, Gina @farmladynutrition & a group of wonderful women. May 26, 2018 @ Rectortown, Virginia

Happy #nationalsiblingsday to the boy (guess he’s a man now 😒) who will have a picnic with me on the side of the road instead of stopping for fast food during a road trip. Love you, Tofurky.

Today I had the honor of delivering an in-service for the delightful trainers at @gainesville_ep with my esteemed colleague Dr. Greg Nash from @ghhcenter. We reviewed physical signs of potential nutrient imbalances that may pop up with some of their clients. Our time together highlighted the value of INTEGRATION to improve outcomes. I’m thrilled to have made new connection & friends today. DM if you’d like me to visit your space for a Nutrition in-service...I’d be happy to oblige 👩🏻‍🌾

I shared an amazing meal with my family tonight at @bartacolife in Reston Town Center. So many of my NoVa clients ask for healthy restaurant recommendations, and this place KILLS IT. For 25¢ you can have you tacos wrapped in lettuce instead of corn tortillas if that’s your thang. Oh and their chicken soup is noodle-free BTdubs. I’m building a local “menu” filled with NoVa restaurant items for my clients to use as a resource. Any recommendations? I love including restaurants who source locally. Farm to tables are great!

It’s been a long time coming, but I just posted a career update article on the website (http://bemindfulandhappy.com/blog/) titled “Spring update: Angela is in Gainesville & Leesburg, VA!” Thank you, sweet friends, for enduring my silence as I waded through this huge transition. And thank you to my new clinic families for welcoming me with open arms >>> Gainesville Holistic Health Center Analgesic Spine Institute (Photograph taken by Anne-Marie Hainer)

Happy Easter, my friends! Happy Sunday after the 1st full moon after the March Equinox! I’ve been filling my window box with flowers that have been growing like weeds on the edges of our sidewalks. Lovely company last night as my tiny family of crystals charged in the Full Sap Moon 🌕

#mondaymealprep 🔛 Mexi bowls, or as we used to say in school...HAYSTACKS. ✔️Shredded greens ✔️ground turkey ✔️stir fried mushrooms & peppers ✔️fire roasted diced tomatoes ✔️black beans ✔️retried beans ✔️black olives ✔️fresh lime ✔️mexi-style cauli rice ✔️guac. Everything is completely prepared, so each day or night before we just pile what we want into our bowls and head off to work! What does your meal prep look like this week? Tell me by tagging me in your pic!

I convinced Brad to join me for a midday workout/meditation, so we rolled up the carpet, moved the furniture & hit the mats. The lighting was gentle & energizing, and @kait.hurley & @alison__wu shared an as*-kicking/peace-giving video.

Hazy morning light on a cozy winter morning • We woke up to a house without running water, so until Fairfax Water came out to save the day, we set up bowls of water in the kitchen: One bowl with water & ACV vinegar for rinsing fruit & veg, one bowl with soapy kitchen water for rinsing our hands & rags. It was kinda fun since our frozen water meter was thawed, replaced & insulated by 2:15pm. Happy Saturday, ice bunnies!

Since Jan 2, I’ve been doing a low-key #whole30. Haha what does that mean? Basically, I’m not doing it as part of a group program or with a large group of friends (except for knowing that @jentiff is doing it too 😏). Since I’ve done it once before, I’m just modifying some staple meals as I go and trying out new recipes when I have the energy. Also, if a friend or family member cooks for me, I make the best choices I can without grilling them on every ingredient they used. This bowl of delight I’m holding is from @paleorunningmomma - It’s her Sautéed Apples & Pears with Coconut Butter. It’s a lovely twist to the sautéed apples with oats & coconut butter I like when not on the Whole30. I love how much cinnamon she calls for (trust her even if you think it’s a sh*t ton) & the pear 🍐 element added to a dish you only expect “apple pie 🥧 “ from. The only thing I’ll change next time is to make a bigger batch, bc this is perfect for breakfast, snack & dessert.
