30 Day Clean Eating Guide

Last November on a flight to Florida I started to outline an idea I had for a clean eating book. That week in Florida I planned it out more and more but didn’t go much further than my ideas. When I got back I rewrote that outline like 5 more times trying to figure out exactly what I wanted this book to look like. This starting and stopping process continued until my most recent draft in May. I kept getting stuck or distracted. I just couldn’t focus on it like I wanted. So, like any blog post, if it doesn’t flow, I don’t write it.

I’m not sure what happened exactly two weeks ago but the entire thing started to flow through my fingers and onto this computer screen. I couldn’t stop working on it.

I wrote and wrote and planned and drafted up recipes on recipes. I visited so many grocery stores to research products and prices. I stayed up late almost every night. I took my laptop to restaurants and drank margaritas while I worked, haha! I printed copies of it to write on and edit over and over. And I even DESIGNED the entire book myself. I have to say that I’ve been completely stoked the entire time I’ve been doing this – like how I imagine anyone who has ever invented something must feel like.

Fall, Whole30 & a lot of Inspiration

So, um, it’s been awhile since I’ve shared my life with you all. Yeah, there’s Instagram, Twitter, Facebook & Snapchat, but this is the one place where I am truly able to lay it all out there and share my perspective on what’s going on around me. The last thing you all read was my post about NYC. What a trip! If you missed it, read it now.

And with that being said, we have a lot to catch up on.

Many things have happened over the past month and I’m sure you already realize that I’ve been very busy. The season has changed and time is moving faster than ever. Every time I turn around a new month is starting and I’m constantly trying to keep up. I’ve been doing a lot of work for various committees that I’m on, work work, and personal work like health, food and fitness. I’ve even decided to embark on my 4th Whole30 (which is going well, BTW). Things are moving at a fast pace right now and I like it. I like kicking ass and getting shit done. BUT it’s easy to get lost in it all and lose sight of what really matters from time to time. I have to ask myself, “Why am I doing these things?” “Why are these things that keep me so busy this important to me?” “What’s the end goal in all of this?”

All of this motion and activity makes it hard to live in the moment. When things get hectic we naturally try to get more control over all of it. We search for answers and try to solve problems that don’t necessarily need to be answered right now. I’ve caught myself doing this recently. Trying to do it all and make sure everything is in its place. Reality check – that’s not how life works and it’s not going to be pleasent when you’re always trying to control it. I’m constantly reminding myself to enjoy life, to go with it and not worry about what is happening or what could be. Now is the most important thing, because it’s all there really is. Right now, today, this very minute, we are here and this is life. So what are you doing now? What are you thinking? Are you stressed out about something you honestly can’t change? Are you frantically planning tomorrow as a means to get control. Chill. Just stop. Take a deep breath and enjoy this. This is living. You are breathing, you are here, and right now you are you.

Naturally, I have to sit down and answer my own question. Why am I doing all of these things?… Because I know I am supposed to use my skills, talents, and passion for the betterment of others. Whether it’s helping a company with social media or teaching a friend about Whole30, my passions are inspiring more people than I knew. My love for what I do is actually leaking into other people’s lives and getting their wheels turning too. For me, that’s it. Sparking interest in someone with a healthy or purposeful habit fills me with joy. I want to be here for you, in any way that I can. I want to talk to you, answer your questions, get to know you, inspire you, allow you to inspire me. I want to create a community of people who live now, full of happiness and aren’t afraid to approach the unknown with a smile on their face. I want to be here for you because you all are here for me. I’m surrounded by such incredible people who strong, brilliant, funny, serious, carefree, peaceful and driven people. Every day you all make an impact on me and inspire me to be better and I want to return that to you.

I want you to leave me comments, send me emails, message me, tweet me, snap me. Whatever it is that you do to share positive vibes, I want to see them. I’m going to do the same by sharing my life with you here, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat and we are all going to be here to help each other.

I’m Doing Whole30 #3

You’re not crazy, but maybe I am.

I know I just finished my second Whole30 in February but it’s never too soon to get back to it. Yesterday was day 1 of my third Whole30 and I’m very excited about my spontaneous decision to start again. Through my previous experiences I learned new things about myself and made huge strides toward my goals. Well, Derby week just happened (no excuse) and I’ve been going out a lot and socializing (re: drinking, a lot.) My only solution for “excessive fun” is Whole30.

After totally dominating two Whole30′s without any slip-ups or cheating, this one will definitely be fun. I don’t feel pressure to meal plan or adjust my social life in order to be successful. I’m just doing it. And, since I have a good hold on how to stick to Whole30, I’m really going to focus on setting and achieving meaningful goals for the next 30 days that will carry over into my everyday life.

I’m going to focus more on recipe development, blogging, and allowing more time for self-exploration. I need to cleanse my life of unnecessary things and get a little more organized. I will be trying out some new workouts, which means I might finally try CrossFit *gasp!*. I’m going to be challenging myself and pushing my self-control to its limits over the next 30 days in order become a better me. And of course, per many inquiries and questions, I plan to educate you all on my view of healthy living and how I do it.

Until then, follow me on Instagram and Twitter to see what I’m doing and eating.

Paleo On-The-Go: Quick Snacks to Take With You

5:30am.
Drink water.
Do some form of yoga.
Shower.
Blow dry hair.
Put makeup on.
Find something to wear.
Change multiple times only to put on the first outfit with satisfaction.
Gather laptop bag, purse and food bag.
Get Penny into her pouch.
Head to the kitchen to make breakfast.
Pack lunch and snacks while eggs cook.
Sit down and eat.
Kiss parents goodbye.
Grab everything and run out the door.

Interestingly enough, this only takes me 1-2 hours every day, Haha! Taking my time and enjoying the morning is a favorite part of my day. I also like to be prepared for the day. With a 30 minute drive to work and about 45 on the way back, I spend a lot of time away from home and can’t be tempted by quick “food” options, like drive-thru’s and convenience stores. How do I stay prepared you ask? I just throw some of my favorite snacks in my food bag and I’m good to go for the day. If I’m hungry, I have something good to eat, and if not, I find comfort in knowing I have the option. You know, just in case I break down on the side of the road or get stranded, I wouldn’t want to starve.

Here’s a list of  paleo snacks you can find at a normal store near you:

  • Larabars. Holy moley, I don’t know how I lived 22 years without them! My favorites: apple pie, coconut cream pie & key lime pie

  • Dark chocolate. (I mean real dark chocolate. Not Hersheys!) I like Green & Black’s 85%.

  • Portable fruit and veggies that are good at room temp. I love muchin’ on sugar snap peas!
  • Nuts. I like to pre-make little bags that are easy to grab and full of variety.
  • GUILTY Pleasure: Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups.
  • I also drink lots o’ hot tea, water and kombucha.

Remember, don’t rely on snack-age. You usually don’t need to hoard snacks if you’re eating a filling breakfast and lunch. Always plan ahead and you can remain satisfied with your little stock pile of paleo-yums hiding in your purse or desk drawer.
