Have you ever heard of a Holistic Food Drive?
VIDEO link in BIO!
The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (my holistic nutrition alma mater) is currently hosting a very special food drive that puts a focus on nutritious food donations.
This initiative supports our local food banks and our community members who need help accessing food.
The beauty is that this campaign goes one step further by offering nutritious options.
I'm deeply honoured to be supporting this, special, food drive as part of #celebrateholisticnutrition month.
The school is has been changing lives in this innovative field for 25 years now! I’m so proud to be part of this community and all that they are doing to help others.

Comment below if you suffer from an inflammatory condition 🙋🏼♀️ I have several including IBS, Fibromyalgia, and Interstitial Cystitis.
So many of us live with inflammation including IBS, arthritis, fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis, eczema, etc. But did you know that a lot of inflammation can be controlled by what we eat? 🥑
I feel a million times better since I figured out my inflammatory food triggers. And while I still indulge from time to time, it feels so empowering to be more in control with how I feel. 🙌🏼
I am excited to be working on an #antiinflammatory resource I hope to share with you all soon! ⠀

When in Houston...get your behind to the water to cool down from the 31-degree heat and humidity! 😅
Renting a car and heading to Galveston Island, or immersing yourself in nature in one of the beautiful city parks, such as Hermann Park, are both great options!👌🏻 Galveston Island is only about a 60-minute drive, with plenty of tacos to suit your liking! Hermann park has plenty of water, nature, picnic tables, shade and wildlife to be enjoyed...including a Japanese Garden! Stunning!🌱 I may have topped up my Vitamin D stores for the entire year ahead these past few days! I'm going to need it!

Shaklee maintains a rigorous process for testing raw materials. In 1998, Shaklee’s #4 best selling product was Ginseng. During that year they received a shipment of ginseng roots from China, & during purity testing, discovered that the roots were tainted with a fungicide called quintazine, a carcinogen banned in the U.S. Naturally, they rejected the load.⠀
It turned out there has been severe flooding in China, and someone along the line sprayed this fungicide on the ginseng bulbs, to keep them from rotting during shipping. ⠀
Because the whole year's crop had been contaminated, Shaklee stopped all production of Ginseng for 1 1/2 years. Shaklee was ONLY American company that discontinued ginseng production during this time period. Every other manufacturer continued to produce products from those same tainted roots. ⠀
Shaklee sets the gold standard for the supplement industry. When it comes to guaranteeing that their products are pure, and all the nutrients are fully bio-available, “Shaklee has your back!” ⠀

|| SWEETS 🍦 || .
Of course sweets and treats are a controversial subject with kids. Here’s my recommendations for kids and “treats”. Sweets are a very natural part of life and our craving for them is an instinctual one. When it comes to a child’s relationship to sweets it’s important to allow them the freedom to explore. How can we expect them to know how much is too much if they never have it? Balance is very important in this matter. If they experience treats on a fairly regular basis they will learn to manage their need or desire for them. .
If treats are treated as a reward then it can cause kids to think they must do something to “deserve” them. It’s also important that we don’t restrict them to heavily otherwise they learn that they are bad and when they consume them they attach a negative association to “treats”. This feeds into the guilt mentality of sugary foods or “bad for you” foods... .
I always recommend allowing kids to taste and enjoy sweet foods if they want them. In our house we enjoy foods sweetened naturally more often. Start with the “real” food (Include loads of veggies, fruits, whole grains) this way they won’t fill up on only treats. .
Try not to attach bad or good when speaking to your kids just offer variety and let them tune into how they feel. .
As always QUALITY matters. We for the most part avoid processed sugar but not always. We use maple syrup, honey, stevia and other wholesome sugars. Sugar is a part of our world and it’s best to release control and allow moderation and balance to naturally occur!! ✨ #sugar #naturalsweetner #childhoodnutrition #kids #pediatricnutrition #naturalnutrition #startingsolids #motherhood #parenthood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodjourney #honestmotherhood #balancedhealth #nutrition #nutritionist #holistichealth #intuitiveeating #foodpsychology #mindfuleating #mindfulliving

My dad still plants a garden every year. On his hands and knees planting seeds and sprouts. Last year he planted over 30 tomato plants. We need to return to the back yard gardens, community gardens, get back to the earth, sun, water, seeds. I'm so thankful for being raised with a deep appreciation for food plucked right from the vine. There's something nurturing about fresh veggies, their vital nutrients, alive and potent. Cheering you on pop! #backyardgarden#realfood#sacredearth#gardenveggies#naturalnutrition
Double tap if you’d also rather be at the beach today 🏖😆 ⠀
I have to say as much as the cool weather this week is making me miss the 39 degree heat, it’s so nice to be home. I missed Milo, our bed, and my regular routine. And while we were very good at maintaining our diet and workouts while away, I’ve discovered that even the smallest changes to my routine can cause an #inflammatory flare-up. Are you a routine person? 🙋🏼♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There really is no place like home. Now if Summer decided to come to Nova Scotia earlier this year, I wouldn’t complain 😎⠀

Chiropractor Frank Painter writes; "It is with awe and admiration that I write about what sets Shaklee apart from other supplement manufacturers. The “Shaklee Difference” starts with using the finest quality ingredients available. It is reinforced by the fact that their products are tested for purity, bioavailability, reliability, and performance. And finally, it is backed by a no-questions-asked 100% money-back guarantee. ⠀ ⠀
In Shaklee’s 63-year history, NONE of their products have ever contained synthetic nutrients, artificial colors or sweetening agents, questionable stabilizers, or preservatives. They also NEVER contain pesticide or fungicide residues. They’ve NEVER contained heavy metal or chemical contaminants of any sort. That didn’t happen by accident... that happened by choice." ⠀
Over the next several days we will review several serious product recalls, which raise concerns about the quality and safety of commercial supplements, distributed by huge name-brand manufacturers. Then we'll review why Shaklee has always produced high quality, safe, and effective products. It is easy to feel a strong sense of pride for this Company, because Shaklee originated the concept of “doing well by doing better for others.⠀

BCAAs with KETO or FASTING... should you take them?? .
BCAAs are branch chain amino acids (from meat or powder) that the body uses to build lean muscle... but the science is a bit more complicated than just stocking up on BCAAs and getting swoll.
Too many BCAAs (specifically Leucine) can trigger an insulin spike... which effectively kicks you out of fasting or Keto temporarily and triggers fat storage instead of fat burning.
High levels of BCAAs (from powder or meat) are great for athletes to build muscle as long as they don’t consume too much... but in the average, non-active person they can trigger fatty liver —> Insulin Resistance —> weight gain, diabetes, dementia, heart disease, etc. This is why we should all keep our meat protein consumption to a moderate level.
So, how much is too much for athletes?? Studies show over 3grams of Leucine is enough to trigger this reaction... so, if you’re taking BCAAs and doing fasting or Keto... or just wanting to stay lean then keep the Leucine below 3g.
Our “Natural Athlete- Active BCAAs” Supplement is specifically formulated for just this purpose, they are properly balances with lower leucine to keep the muscle building advantages while reducing the chances of triggering insulin release. #BCAAs#fasting#intermittentfasting#keto#ketogenicdiet#insulinresistence#getlean#ActiveBCAAs#naturalathletenutrition#naturalathletes#supplementsforathletes#naturalathletesupplements#vitaminsforathletes#nutritionforathletes #naturalsupplements#naturalvitamins #naturalnutrition#keepitnatural#PRVNTN#PRFRMNC#RCVRY

I've been pretty sick for a couple weeks now. I haven't been able to go to the gym, been stuck on bed rest for 7 days. The 6 meds I'm on have killed my appetite, and caused me to gain and bloat about 7 lbs (steroids uhg!) But I have been craving strawberries, and I just let my body go with it... I have eaten easily 5lbs of strawberries this week. I stared to wonder why I was craving them so much. (They are my absolute fav food but I've never craved them like this lol) So I did a little research. 🍓Strawberries help control blood sugar. (Two of the meds I'm on for this sickness affect blood sugar, and I ride the line of type 2 diabetic) they are low glycemic index and high in fiber. 🍓Strawberries improve immune functioning and contain 150% of daily vitamin C needs (vitamin c helps your body when you are sick) 🍓Strawberries have high potassium and offset sodium, in turn helping with blood pressure. (Because of the two inhalers my blood pressure has been a little high this week) 🍓Strawberries contain a special anti-allergy flavonoid call fisetin that is anti allergy and anti inflammatory. This helps control body's response to inflammation and allergy responses. (We think some of my sickness is coming from allergies and inflammation) 🍓Strawberry seeds contain ALA and helps boost mood. (Who doesn't need a mood boost, and well #PMDD sucks)
So many more benefits as well... But what I'm getting at is listen to what your body is telling you.Clearly I needed all of these benefits and didn't want to eat but my body said just eat this if nothing else 😂 (PS I have been sipping on vegan protein shakes too) *Side note 🍓strawberries are one of the fruits most heavily sprayed with chemicals and pesticides, so this is the time to splurge on organic and make sure you wash them and strain.

Autumn is proving to be (mostly) gorgeous in Auckland……BUT Autumn has also heralded head colds (hello!) for many. It’s a time of year when I take my nutrition VERY seriously in prep for winter……I like to get most of my vitamins and minerals from REAL food….SO IMAGINE my delight (being a proud Kiwi) when I discovered RED KIWI(fruit)…🥝❤️….CHATTING IN STORIES about this discovery…..Some teaser info below on this NEW fruit….Wishing you a great day my friends 😘
✔︎Only 30,000 trays were released into the market as a trial (I was lucky to try some)
✔︎The @zesprikiwifruit RED variety has a slight berry twist (delish)
✔︎The red flesh is a naturally occurring pigment within the fruit
✔︎The development for the Zespri Red Kiwifruit started in 2000 (I wonder how many they have to sell to break even 🤔)
✔︎GOLD Kiwifruit with a tropical sweet taste (my absolute fav) has overtaken the tradition Green Kiwifruit sales
✔︎GOLD Kiwifruit have MORE THAN 3x the Vitamin C found in oranges.
