We all know that it's better to eat healthy than it is to eat unhealthy...but do we know why? And do we even know how? There is often so much emphasis put on foods that we SHOULDN'T be eating that we forget about what we actually want to be eating. Registered dietitian Alicia Galvin MEd, RD, CLT, IFNCP puts it this way, β€œFood is not the enemy,” says Galvin. Rather than focus on what you shouldn’t be eating, think about what you can add to your plate that will improve your health, like nuts for heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids or raspberries for their fiber and antioxidants.
β€ͺWhat does your πŸ’© tell your practitioner about your current health & nutrient needs? I interviewed my colleagues Dianne Rishikof RD Health Takes Guts, Inc.

My approach to nutritional counseling is a collaborative one, by which I view a person holistically- looking at sleeping and eating patterns, as well as how that person upholds their level of wellness.

Operating as usual


This is because πŸ™†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ stress affects the main nerve in our body that regulates GI motility, the vagus nerve. πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Stress also changes the βš–οΈ balance of our 🦠 good bacteria and can lead to imbalances that πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ negatively affect our health.


Love this quote from Robert Morley, hope this resonates with you too.

Know that you matter! Once you have nourished yourself from the inside, you will naturally shine, take action and attract all that you want from the outside world.

Take a step back and take a few long deep breaths because when you fall in love with yourself first, you do things that add value to your life.. you'll take care of your body & well-being, you'll eat better, you'll move your body.

Also, loving yourself provides you with self-confidence, self-worth, and in general, you feel more positive.

Because why not?


πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ The white powdery stuff known as "bloom" is a natural waxy coating produced by the berries that acts as a barrier, protecting the skins from 🐜 insects and 🦠 bacteria

If you can see it πŸ‘€, it means the berries are fresh, have been picked in 🌀 nice, dry conditions. They will be firm and plump instead of soft and squishy --- have a greater ⏰ shelf life.

πŸ“Œ Take note that this is different from the white molds. If your blueberries are mushy, soft, or are discolored, it is best to just toss them out. πŸš€

If there is any mold on them, if they are slimy or have an πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ off smell or taste, you will want to get rid of them. πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Remove any moldy blueberries from the container as soon ⚑️as you see them, as the mold can spread quickly.


πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ We have over 100 trillion bacteria 🦠 inside of us, about 10x as many human cells in the body.

So we’re made up more of bacteria than we are human if you πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ think about it. All these bacteria serve a purpose, and every different type of bacteria has a different role β€” supporting our immune function, making vitamins, regulating our πŸ’© bowel movements, 🍎 digesting food, and some research πŸ”Ž suggests helping with weight control, among others.

Supporting our bacteria via the food πŸ₯‘ we eat and not overusing πŸ’Š antibiotics are important.


And now, my friends….. we are in big, fat troubs 😳😳

And yes…. He can also open the door πŸ€ͺ


πŸ”΄Red, 🟒green, and 🟑yellow bell peppers contain nearly triple the vitamin C of an 🍊orange, clocking in at 95.7 mg for a green pepper, 152 mg for a red pepper, and a staggering 341 mg for a yellow pepper.

Peppers are also a great source of fiber and a very low-calorie snack. βœ…βœ…βœ…

Looking after yourself πŸ‘€ on the inside helps with your energy ⚑️, makes your skin glow ✨, and changes your whole outlook on life. πŸ•ΊπŸΌ

πŸ“ŒLet's not forget that healthy outside starts from the inside. πŸ₯°

🀰🏻Getting pregnant isn’t always easy, it requires hope, grit and lots and lots of pregnancy tests.

The entire fertility process is an emotional roller coaster 🎒 and it’s very easy to get discouraged. πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

One moment you’re πŸ§πŸ»β€β™€οΈ daydreaming about starting or growing your family and then all of a πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ sudden a roadblock dashes your hopes but staying πŸ™†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ positive is an extremely important part of your fertility journey.

And you begin again and sometimes you lose, sometimes you win, but you πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ begin again.

Be gentle with yourself πŸ’†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, you’re doing the best you can!

πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Trust me, it's not going to be easy but it'll be worth it.


Headaches and migraines can be so πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ annoying and debilitating. And nothing is more frustrating than suffering from them and not knowing why! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

But there can be many root causes like the ones on my posts.

πŸ“Œ So make sure to drink plenty of water πŸ’¦- add electolytes if you can, work on identifying and removing πŸ₯£food triggers, 🏹 focus on nutrients that can help - magnesium, B12, and B6, reduce stress.


Everyone poops, but most people still feel a little uncomfortable talking about their bowel movements. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’©

While the subject of poop might make you πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ uncomfortable, it's important for your health πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ to notice your bowel movements and be aware when something πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ isn't right.

It is predominantly made up of πŸ’¦ water, 🦠 bacteria and indigestible πŸ₯¬ vegetable fibre, it also contains things we want to get rid of – waste, ☠️ toxins and hormones.

These are vital for the body to remove to stay πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸΌ happy and healthy not keep them for a ⏰ long period of time like memories. πŸ™†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ


πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Have you had that kind of moment?

Honestly, it's quite magical. ✨

In all seriousness, what is the perfect avoado???

πŸ₯‘πŸ‘‰πŸΌ If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it's ripe and ready-to-eat.

πŸ₯‘πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Ripe, ready to eat avocados may have a darker color but color can vary so it is best to go by feel as well as color.

πŸ₯‘πŸ‘‰πŸΌ It will feel lightly soft but it will not feel β€œmushy” to the touch. Ripe fruit is perfect for that day.

Avocados are a healthy food you can add to your diet.

The vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats you get from avocados help prevent disease and keep your body in good working order.

One of the πŸ† best health benefits of Basil is that it is an excellent source of πŸ‘‰πŸΌ antioxidants. It contains πŸ’¦ water soluble flavonoids called rientin and viceninare which can help to protect white blood cells also known to help fight free radical damage.

πŸ“Œ BONUS: Basil isn't simply for internal use. When basil's oils are extracted to make an essential oil, it is used for treating cuts, wounds, and skin infections.
