Thanks @whatracheleats_sw for lunch inspo today! I seem to have lost my imagination when it comes to food these days - I'm sure it'll return at some point! So glad I follow so many fabulous accounts on here to keep me inspired 🙌🏼
Homemade Pea & Ham Soup from my freezer stash (super easy, made with frozen peas) with an Egg Mayo Roll. I always put a wee bit of Salad Cream in my Egg Mayo too 👌🏼 Anyone else? 🥚 .
GD results are still very stable which I'm super happy with at 31 weeks, just keeping an eye on what I'm doing and managing to control it well through diet. All I can ask for really ☺️
Hair appointment soon for some fresh roots and a wee trim 💇
Okay.... My friends with Berkey’s! Talk to me!
We are highly considering making the switch for many reasons.
We are a family of four.
Tell me the pros and cons of the Berkey as well as which size you think our family needs. To give you a rough idea of our consumption, we go through 4-5, 5 gallon water jugs every 2 weeks.
Share all of the things....go!!!! 📷: @berkey_filters
TL;DR: Eat your sweet potatoes! Baked, not fried.
In the article "Cardiac complications in thalassemia major" Auger and Pennell 2016 state: "Blood transfusions create loading of iron that cannot be naturally excreted, and this iron accumulates within tissues, including the heart. Free unbound iron catalyzes the formation of TOXIC HYDROXYL RADICALS, which damage cells and cause cardiac dysfunction." Read more: http://bit.ly/thal-heart-complications
Mu, Sun, Wang, et al. (2017) state that "HYDROXYL RADICALS are a type of free radical with the most active chemical properties. They cause the most harm among the free radicals....Sweet potato protein has a strong HYDROXYL RADICAL scavenging activity." Read more: http://bit.ly/learn-about-hydroxyl-radical
There's 2.1 grams of protein in 1 cup of cubed sweet potatoes
I’ll be sharing ❤️ healthy alternatives to the foods we know and love for thanksgiving 🦃 but leave us feeling sick 🤢 and bloated! 🥴
Cauliflower Breadsticks 🙌
1 cup raw grated cauliflower or 100 grams (2 Greens)
1/4 cup egg substitute *You are able to add up to 2 oz of additional protein per Nutrition Support
1 cup shredded or 4 oz 2% light mozzarella, divided (1 Lean)
Garlic salt and Italian seasonings, to taste
For Marinara Sauce:
1/2 cup Italian diced tomatoes - less than 5 g of carbs per serving (1 Green) *You can also use Walden Farms Marinara Sauce, but 1/4 cup is considered to be 2 condiments and is not a vegetable. You would have to add a third of veggies to your meal if you choose this option.
Puree Italian diced tomatoes in a small chopper. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350. Mix cauliflower, 1/4 cup egg substitute, and 3 oz or 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella together in a bowl until combined. Line a 9x13 loaf pan with parchment and lightly spray with Pam. Pour mixture into pan about 1 -1/2 inch deep. (It is okay if the mixture does not cover the entire pan.) Bake at 350 for 30 min or until set. Lift the edges of the parchment and place bread with parchment onto cookie sheet. Carefully use a spatula to lift the edges of the dough off the parchment and flip the dough. Bake for an additional 15 minutes at 450 degrees. Take out of oven and with a pizza cutter, slice strips through set dough. Separate slightly. Sprinkle with garlic salt, Italian seasonings and 1 oz or 1/4 cup 2% reduced fat mozzarella or three cheese blend. Continue baking at 450 degrees for about 10 more minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with marinara sauce.

Eat the rainbow....⠀
You may have heard the phrase “eat the rainbow” and how important it is to try to eat a variety of colourful fruit and veg. But do you know the reason?⠀
🍅 We all know that you are supposed to eat your five a day, but sometimes people end up eating more fruit to make up their five a day when this can actually be less beneficial due to the sugar content.⠀
🥕Every fruit and vegetable offers different vitamins and minerals and many of the natural compounds (phytochemicals) that give the fruit and veg their colour are antioxidants which are associated with lower levels of cardiovascular disease.⠀
Try to make sure your plate consists of a colourful selection at every meal for an easy way to know your getting your vitamins!⠀
Do you have any skin tags Have you ever wondered why you have them ❓ They are usually found around your arm pits, under your breast/chest area, groin and around your neck? If you have any of these tags you know that they can be quite irritating as clothing rub on them. 👖👙👚 They are usually a symptom of your body not managing your blood sugars levels a condition that is also called insulin resistance. They can be evident at any age after puberty but more likely into your forties and fifties. They are also linked as a symptom to a condition known as PCOS (polycystic ovarian disease) which is often also characterized other symptoms such as acne, irregular periods, Hair on lip, 💋 chin or neck and ovarian cysts. ⠀
So skin tags can be termed more an indicator of your metabolic and female health as opposed to your skin health and for this reason are more common in women than men. One of the ways to manage these tags is to change your diet🍺🍴🍒 and reduce any sugar laden or high GI foods. I have seen clients that have taken this approach and their skin tags have disappeared which highlights the importance of diet . Otherwise they are usually treated with electro dissected or cryotherapy. But it is important to note that they are a warning sign that your body is not coping with the types of food that you are eating and you need to revise your diet and reduce your sugar load 🍟🍕🍔🍗🍨🍩 which includes your daily intake of fruit, fruit juices and health drinks. Always check the back of the label for its sugar/carbohydrate and fructose levels. I like to recommend the daily use of Flaxseed meal and encourage clients to take 1 tablespoon morning and night. It great for balancing blood sugar levels and eliminating toxins from the body. ⁉️⠀
