🥗 Alright guys, what’s better: Salad dressing massaged throughout, or drizzled on the top at the end? I like the even dispersion of my dressing over all things, but if I’d made this salad any bigger, I would’ve needed more dressing! I also like to keep foods like avocado and hummus all in one place (they’re both in my dinner, underneath the vege) because I feel like I can’t taste them otherwise if get mooshed into everything. Anyone else have food quirks like this? I can’t be the only one 😎 #onmyplate: Wild sockeye salmon with a big salad of lettuces, arugula, dill, parsley, yellow carrots, cherry toms, bell pepper. There’s avocado, hummus and roasted beets on the bottom. All covered in my fav creamy dressing. For dessert I had a thick slice of Sweet Potato Toast covered in @thecocotribe coconut yoghurt and blueberries. Nailing the #nutrientdensity tonight. 🐟 Don’t forget you can get yourself a sweet discount on this wild salmon if you’re in Brisbane, plus I’ve tracked down where else you can get it if you’re not local. All the details are on my blog but act quick, you’ve only got two weekends left for the discount! 📲 Recipes for the Wild Salmon, Easy Roasted Beetroot and Sweet Potato Toast are all on solefirewellness.com (link in bio @solefirewellness). Happy FriYAY friends! #solefireeats
Why you should include Spring Greens in your weekly menu • . Spring Greens are both abundant and seasonal right now • young tender cabbage plants without the heart • they are a member of the Brassica family, along with other cabbages, kale, Brussel Sprouts and cauliflower • . Spring Greens are packed with immune boosting Vitamin C, to finally help obliterate any nasty lingering winter colds and, for us ladies, Greens provide good levels of Vitamin K, which helps keep bones strong • this is really important during peri- and menopausal years as oestrogen levels decline • Don’t underestimate the peril of brittle bones! . As hormone levels fluctuate, for men as well as women, during the mid life years, it’s more important than ever to support your liver to eliminate spent oestrogen and testosterone • the liver is the organ that detoxifies all the fluctuating hormones, and the good news is that Brassicas are integral to the various phases of liver detoxification • . When you consume these delicious Brassicas they break down creating a compound called Indole-3-Carbinol, though you don’t need to remember the name, it’s interesting to read about the cancer protective properties of I3C; you can read more via the link below 🔽 . My No 1 Twin (by which I mean eldest, not favourite 😉) calls this “savage cabbage” .... he’s not a fan, but the other 2 children love it! . Take 2 heads of spring Greens, wash, shred and heat in a large pan with 1 clove of grated garlic and a tbsp of tamari soy sauce • simmer for about 3-4 mins • the coarse texture of greens means they can take really strong flavours • if you are a meat eater you could add some chopped chorizo or bacon instead of the garlic and soy • whatever it takes to increase your intake of this gorgeous vegetable x .

Eggs 🍳 why they make the perfect first baby food ~ They are incredibly nutrient dense and versatile and a complete protein. For babies under 10 months though it’s best to use just the yolk as most of the allergenic proteins are in the white of an egg. ~ Egg yolks from pasture-fed organic hens and farms are full of cholesterol, choline and omega-3 long-chain fatty acids which is important for brain development. ~ They are a source of ‘heme’ iron which is easily absorbed by babies. It’s important to start increasing dietary sources of iron from 6 months on as breastmilk levels decline. ~ Vitamins A, D, E and K which all have many functions including immune function and support. ~ Folate and vitamin B12 which are very important vitamins involved in lots if enzymatic pathways in the body some of which include the formation of red blood cells and DNA and precursors to many neurotransmitters. ——————————————————————————- To cook the perfect soft boiled egg cook for 5 minutes in boiling water. To increase the iron content you can grate frozen chicken liver on top which will cook it. Eggs and egg yolk omelette is definitely Maxxy’s favourite and so simple to make. Caramelise banana slices in coconut oil. Scramble 2 egg yolks with a tbsp of coconut milk and a pinch of cinnamon and add to the banana cooking in the pan. I throw in roasted pumpkin too. Slice when cooled. By 8-10 months when their grasp and pincer grip is better developed you can cook vegetable frittata and slice it up for them to grab. It’s a great food to take with you as it can be eaten cold. I like to use spices such as Garlic, Cumin, Cinnamon and Turmeric. Baby food doesn’t have to be bland! . . . . #eggyolk#egg#babyledweaning#nutrientdense#wholefoods#firstfoods#omega3#protein#organic#healthybabies#ironrichfood#stopfeedingthembabycereals
During your recovery period, make sure you consume enough fast-diesting carbohydrates and proteins before consuming a solid and well-balanced meal. This meal should be lower in fat to allow for faster digestion.
I discovered this gem called gomasio last year and our salads have never been the same. What is it? It’s a condiment made of 92% ground sesame seeds and unrefined sea salt. . . My husband was uninspired and bored with salads before and now even looks forward to them. I also find it’s texture is more kid-friendly than whole sesame seeds. . . Sesame seeds are rich in many important vitamins and minerals including copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, as well as dietary fiber and phytosterols. . . You can grind sesame seeds yourself in a 12:1 ratio with salt using a mortar and pestle, or buy it ready made in health food or organic shops. It’s also vegan, paleo, and keto friendly. #sesameseeds#nutrientdense#seasoning#supersalad#kidfriendly#vitaminsandminerals#nutsandseeds#getexcited #eatinghealthydoesnthavetobeboring #benefit4life#getfitwithbenefit

Sweetbreads from @buttermethat! So excited that someonemade this amazing dish! Do you know what sweetbreads are?🤤 ・・・ For my submission to @ketocollabs March Madness, meat edition, I give you: Sweetbreads with shallot, white wine pan sauce and pickled asparagus. • Sweetbreads, the thymus gland of the beef animal, are mild tasting, rich in trace minerals, omega 3’s and everyone’s fat soluble vitamins, A, E and K. Also some vitamin C - one ounce has 16% of your daily requirements! Touché, sweetbreads. • Sweetbread Preparation • Boil a pot of water and throw the whole lobe in for 1 minute. Some people use vinegar for this step, we don’t. Do it if you like. #vinegarsecurityblanket Take sweetbread out, dip in ice water briefly then set it on paper towel to let it dry and completely cool. Pick it up and feel around- peel any clear membrane like pieces off. Break the full lobe into chicken nugget sized pieces, removing any more membrane you encounter. All of that was the hard part. • Now for the easy part. You can cook these prepared pieces many ways: braise for an hour, bread it and deep fry it like a nugget, whatevs, go crazy! Here, we sautéed it with shallot and garlic and made a buttery pan sauce. • Method Sauté the cleaned, blanched and dry sweetbread pieces for 2 minutes in olive oil with sliced garlic and shallot. Add wine & stock to the pan, reduce heat to low and cook another 6-7 minutes for medium-well done sweetbreads. Finish with butter. For well-done, cook a further 10 minutes once the liquid is added. Plate and enjoy! • . #marchmadness#ketofied#ketocrazyfoods#ketomarchmadness#ketouniqueeats#ketouniquewoe#coolrecipes#organmeats#organs#paleo#nutrientdense#fertility#fertilitydiet#ketopregnancy#foodforpregnancy#nutritious#grassfe

FUN FACT: I used to hate onions.🙅🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I actually used to be a super picky eater in general. But I particularly remember this one convo while eating dinner at my cousins when I was younger...essentially I said that I didn't like onions and they proceeded to ban me from the house (jokingly, of course🤣). Anywho, now I LOVEEEEEE onions and I add them to almost all my favorite dishes! 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Onions have several health benefits as they are a super nutrient dense vegetable (and they're low in calories too)! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are some of the benefits: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. High in nutrients, namely vitamin C, B vitamins and potassium. 2. May reduce risk of heart disease 3. Rich in antioxidants 4. Regulate blood sugar 5. Contain cancer fighting compounds 6. Boosts digestion 7. Anti-bacterial properties ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's crazy how our taste buds change once we know we're fueling our bodies right! 👌🏻
Since having a kid, I made myself highly intentional about what we eat and let me tell you-There’s seriously nothing better than produce straight from the farm! I’ve been in this mood lately where I want to look up random studies based on people who’ve healed their bodies with food and I could go on and on about America needing to ask the question”what’s really in my food?” Do we even care what goes in our bodies? I’ll teach my baby to be aware of what he puts in his body. Knowledge is power. See, even Lilliana cares 🤣🥬🍓🥑 #locallysourced#farmersmarketfinds#youarewhatyoueat#chihuahuasofinstagram
Pumpkin Spice, Vanilla, & Strawberry nutrient dense superfood shake...anyone...?! 🎃 SERIOUSLY...that's what I got to drink after my at-home workout on my back deck! How much sweeter of a deal can you get than that?! Especially cause I hadn't eaten alot of veggies today, like we all tend to lack a little on, am I right? And I say this as a Nutritionist myself. Its hard sometimes, on the day to day, to fill in the gaps of what we need nutritionally. And even moreso when you struggle with digestive issues like I do. So what better way than to get to have a totally DELISH refreshing shake, right after a workout, as you then lounge on a YOUR couch?! There just isn't! Which is why, being this is a SUPER popular top of the market shake, I encourage you to reach out to me if YOU do struggle with any digestive issues. This helps SOOO much with constipation (I know TMI BUT its true)! Or if YOU just simply struggle with getting all your veggies in. Since it is filled with all the nutrients you get from greens! I can totally hook you up! 👍 #pumpkinspice#vanilla#strawberry#superfoods#nutrientdense#nutritionalshake#digestivehealth#constipationreliever#veggienutrients

First dinner since back home. Asian pork lettuce wraps it is! . We decided since we missed out on our annual #januarywhole30 this year, it felt like a great time to do a mini #whole30. We are planning on doing a week reset and go from there. We aren’t doing it because we have eaten “bad” or “unhealthy”. We don’t like those terms. . On vacation we made conscious choices on what we ate and loved every bite we took! If it wasn’t worth it to us we didn’t eat it, same rules we always go by. We just decided now was a good time to focus on healing, nutrient dense foods while removing grains, sugars, or lovely cocktails, oh and the soy from the delicious poke 😋 . #eatwell . #lettucewraps#pork#whole30#day1#reset#alwayslearning#alwaysgrowing#pasturedpork#nutrientdense#veggies#shishitos#bebetter
Ladies have you ever felt intimidated to do something that is traditionally a mans job? . I am a problem solver! I love the research and trouble shooting! I love finding the part I need and fixing stuff! Ladies we can freaking do anything! . I have gone out of the traditional female role and fixed lots of things most women would not consider to try! And saved so much money!!! I had fixed both a washer and a dryer, and 2 heaters for different issues. . This week I took a risk and tried working on my car for the first time. All growing up I lived with my grandpa and he was a mechanic. If it was something we could do at home he did it. But I never took the opportunity to learn from him. Eventually he retired and cars changed. Everything became tighter under the hood and more electronic. So it became more and more difficult to do it at home. . My check engine light has been on for a little bit. I thought it was because i hadn’t screwed my gas cap on right and it would go away... that is possible if you didn’t know that. But it didn’t. So I took it to an auto store and they told me what was causing it to be on. They give you an error code. So then you have to figure out what causes that and which part fixes that. . Long story short the last three nights working on it and I FIXED IT!!! I saved $500 in labor! That is huge. I may have done a little happy dance when it was officially fixed. If anything I think we can do it better than the guys because we follow directions. 😜 haha! . Ladies if there is something in life that you want to try, TRY IT! I have all the faith and confidence in the world that we can do anything!! . What is something you have always wanted to try? Anything?!?!? Wild dreams! Comment below!

Berries: Incredibly healthy and versatile fruits —————- What I believe is easily the most versatile common fruit, berries can be used as a finger snack, in yogurt, in oatmeal or cereals, on salads, in dressings, as jams and jellies, and of course made into deserts. Simply adding a handful of berries to any snack or meal can greatly enhance the nutritional value of that meal. Bonus: they taste amazing! . ❗️Old myths are old myths. There is absolutely no reason to avoid fruit as part of your nutrition. Berries (and most fruit) is very NUTRIENT dense and low in calories. PLUS, it’s usually very high in fibre 👏🏼. Berries are nearly the best for having low sugar vs high fibre content! ❤️ . Here I have highlighted a few nutritional facts about the 4 main kinds of berry (📷: Top to Bottom): . ✅Strawberries 🍓 (per 100g) -37kcal -7.7g carbohydrate (2g fiber, 4.9g sugar) -98% daily Vitamin C (2000kcal diet) -source of manganese . ✅Blackberries (per 100g) -43kcal -9.6g carbohydrate (5.3g fiber, 4.9g sugar) -35% daily Vitamin C (2000kcal diet) -25% daily Vitamin K (“ “) -source of manganese . ✅Blueberries (100g) -57kcal -14g carbohydrate (2.4g fiber, 10g sugar) -16% daily Vitamin C -24% daily Vitamin K -source of manganese . ✅Raspberries (100g) -52kcal -12g carbohydrate (6.5g fiber, 4.4g sugar) -44% daily Vitamin C -10% daily Vitamin K -source of manganese . 👇🏼Caloric Density Comparisons👇🏼 Per 100 grams (Berries: 32-57kcal) Spinach - 24kcal Carrots 🥕- 42kcal Oatmeal - 67kcal Potatoes 🥔- 77kcal White rice 🍚- 130kcal Whole Wheat Bread - 247kcal Pasta (WW/White)🍝- 322/352kcal Potato Chips (Regular) - 536kcal . . . . #nutrition#myfitnesspal#healthyeating#healthyeatinghabits#precisionnutrition#precisionnutritioncoach#healthandwellness#fitnesspro#fitpro#personaltrainer#food#foodphotography#weightloss#nutrientdense#nutrientdensity#caloricdeficit#calories#healthtips#trainertips#fiteast
Left over vegan chilli from last week on top of a sweet potato with some avocado, cilantro, sriracha and fresh lime juice 🤤🌶🍠 Chilli is such a great freezer meal so I always double it up when I make it! It freezes unbelievable well, is so cheap to make and is extremely versatile so you won’t get bored of it. You could eat it on its own, on top of rice (or any other starch for that matter)or put it into a wrap... the possibilities are endless! It also makes for a super quick nutritious meal so it’s a great option for those on the go or in a time crunch.

The food you consume will influence who you become .. We are going to get older. We are going to age and lose our youth. But we can slow down this process with a whole food diet. .. Forget about carbs, fats, and proteins. Focus on real food first. If that doesn't help you lose weight, then we can talk about macronutrients. .. Type A individuals tend to like simple rules. Here is an easy rule to follow: .. 8 out of 10 meals should consist of whole foods ..
Are you still afraid of eating fat? Don’t be! It’s one of our bodies essential building blocks. We use it for energy, protection of our essential organs, and keeping our bodies warm. We also need fat to absorb essential vitamins and minerals. My favorite function - it makes food taste good. Like this chunk of grass-fed @kerrygoldusa butter in my steamed broccoli. Add that in combination with some grass-fed beef in my homemade tomato sauce, it’s a delicious meal! It’s #nationalhealthyfatsday - how are you celebrating??? 😁
Need a late afternoon pick me up or a delicious dessert for tonight? These skillet brownies made by our friend @lepetitmondea look SO good. Frost with Cocoa Butter and you get an extra boost of spices like turmeric, cardamom, cacao, and more that are full of anti-inflammatory and immune boosting compounds. Check out her post from yesterday (3/20) for the full recipe💛
What’s for dinner tonight? If you have no clue, look no further than THIS ☝🏻super easy, super delicious chili from our Queen @shutthekaleup (the secret ingredient is bone broth and dark chocolate! Seriously you must try.) #putsomebrothinit#bonafidemakesitbetter#truebrothtribe
I know that eating more wholefood and incorporating a more plant based diet makes me feel better... BUT why do I then eat foods that make me feel crap and do not nourish my body?!?! 🤔 I'm putting it down to #selfsabotage 😂 . So I am making a conscious effort to respect my body enough to fuel it with food that creates vitality. . I am going to think ahead and plan my meals out a little better. It's not hard and this is so delicious. Stir fry veggies and tempeh with ginger, chilli and tamari
CARBS AFTER 8 PM 🍌 . There are some people who believe that if you eat carbs after a certain time at night, usually 6 or 8 PM, it’s all going to be stored as fat 🤔 . This isn’t true. Calories in food does not change after a certain time. 100 calories are 100 calories no matter the time of the day 😁 . Eating carbs at night will not make you fat, unless you constantly end up eating too much (too many calories) 😬 . .
