Did you know you should cut carbs to lose weight? DID I get you? This is actually FALSE. There is a common misconception that you need to exclude this macronutrient from your diet in order to be healthy or lose weight. ACTUALLY this is nonsense. Carbohydrates are an important part of a healthy diet. Carbs are the body’s main source of energy. We need them to function. There are simple carbs like chips, soda and candy. Then there are complex carbs like whole grains (in this yummy bread), fruits, vegetables and nuts and beans. These carbs help fuel our bodies and allow us to function properly! Carbs have fiber which help us not only feel full, but keep us regular and help our cholesterol stay in check!

Thanksgiving has not always been my favorite holiday but since having cancer it is a new favorite! 🦃🧡🎃 I make it a point to tell people in my life I am grateful for them and appreciate the little things in life- like running! I was dealing with some knee issues back in the summer and this was my first race back! I just wanted to have a good race no matter my time. I even hit my goal by 2 seconds! It’s so important to be acknowledge what good things are in your life and take note of the little things. Comment what you are grateful for whether it be catching the train on time, eating your favorite meal with a friend or having 30 minutes to watch your favorite show!

I think everyone knows, “carrots are good for your eyes” But do you KNOW why? Its because carrots contain vitamin A! Vitamin A is a b vitamin that yes, is good for your eyes. Its a precursor vitamin that helps your eyes adjust to the dark. It stimulates the production and activity of white blood ells and even takes part in remodeling bones! There is an active form of vitamin A known as retinoids which comes from animal products. Then the second type of vitamin A is called Beta-carotene which comes from plants! Not only is vitamin A good for your eyes, but its also great for keeping your immune system health and continuing to cell growth. Most people do get enough vitamin A through food. Other sources of vitamin A include eggs, fortified cereals, sweet potatoes, spinach and apricots! #dEATS - Sweet potatoes: 1,403 mcg of vitamin A, or 561% of DV - Tofu: High-fiber which keep your colon healthy - Broccoli: Reduces inflammation, and improves blood sugar control - Cauliflower: Good source of antioxidants

Type 1, type 2, and gestational. All require attention to detail and proper care. Here are some quick diabetes facts! Diabetes affects about 37 million Americans! Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States 2021 marked the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin. This is why is important to take care of your health and when living with diabetes you do NOT need to stray away from carbohydrates. You just need to balance your carbohydrates with sources of fiber and protein to keep a stable blood sugar! This breakfast contains carbohydrates and fiber from the oatmeal and berries and protein from the sunbutter!

There are few things in life I Iove other than corgis and chocolate. I also happen to love pasta and chickpeas. And @barillaus makes chickpea PASTA. Another thing I love so add that to the list #sponsored. Since I love chickpeas so much I wanted to make pasta with double the chickpea because it would be falafel if I didn’t utilize it in so many ways. I love Barilla because they have something for everyone. Barilla makes a variety of pasta options to support your lifestyle—from semolina and whole grain to legume and my recipe is using legume! Barilla has been making high-quality, al dente pasta for 140 years and put this expertise towards using new ingredients, like chickpeas, for 19g of protein and 15g of fiber per 3.5oz serving. This recipe contains protein, fiber, healthy fats and delicious tomato sauce which contains vitamins and minerals. Recipe: 1 can chickpeas Olive oil Salt 🧂 Pepper Oregano 1 jar @verogustosauce sauce 🥫🍅 1 box @barillaus Chickpea Penne pasta 1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped 🍅 2 cups Spinach 🥬 2 Zucchini Fresh basil (optional) How to: Preheat oven to 350 Boil water according to pasta instructions Drain and rinse chickpeas. Pat dry. Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Toss with olive oil and put on a baking sheet Bake for 30 minutes Add pasta once water is boiling Rinse zucchini and chop in half circles Sauté spinach and zucchini in a sauce pan with olive oil Rinse cherry tomatoes and slice half Once pasta is finished, drain Once spinach is wilted, mix with pasta Add @verogustosauce in pasta pan with spinach. Keep on heat until warm Take crispy chickpeas out of oven once cooked to desired texture Top pasta mixture with chickpeas, chopped tomatoes and fresh basil (optional)

Check out what I saw @njvegfest this weekend! #veganfood #veganfestival #vegannews #njvegfest #njvegan #plantbased @allroadsvegan @aplustruffles @buttermeupnj @secretvegankitchen @healthyasamotha @7th_heaven_chocolate @mushroomjerky @mopweeze

It is very trendy nowadays to be vegan or label something as vegan. But news flash, so many cultures cuisines are plant based by nature and no not label there foods with such trendy words Did you know that Asian and African countries have low rates of meat consumption and high rates of vegetarianism? India has the highest rate of vegetarianism as 31% of the population is a vegetarian. Vegetables are a main source of the meal, the star perhaps. Two countries, Eritrea and Ethiopia have tons of plant based dishes I love plant based food but not everything needs to be labeled vegan especially if it’s naturally made without eggs or dairy!

Enough with all the oat slander, I am coming at you to tell you that OATS are HEALTHY especially overnight oats #ad #sponsored I am a huge fan of overnight oats nad my new obsession is @oats_by_garnish Overnight oats are great for on the go. Now that I commute to NYC 5 days a week, sometimes I am in a rush and I need something nutritious to eat on the train. Oats contain soluble fiber which is so important for your digestive system and heart. It aids in lowering cholesterol, improving blood sugar and helping you feel fuller longer. These overnight oats are dairy free and are full of protein from delicious nuts. Nuts contain healthy fats like omega 3s. This is an essential fatty acid which means you NEED to eat them in order to maintain a healthy body and mind! I have no complaints about these oats except that I run out after I eat them every week!

Most people only think of protein for building muscle, but it has other super powers too, like hormone regulation and oxygenation of red blood cells. 💪🏽 And you know what else has super powers, @barillaus protein pasta! #sponsored Protein+ is a good source of protein and fiber, non-GMO project certified. The Protein+ is a no-compromise alternative for those looking to include plant-based sources of protein and remains a Good Source of Fiber and a Good Source of Protein with 10g/2oz protein per serving! Since protein is so important I decided to come at you with a protein packed pasta pesto recipe! In addition I love @barillaus pasta because its made with wheat, vitamins/minerals, and water, and has no added sugar, fat or sodium! If you are looking to boost your protein game, make this recipe below! The protein + pasta mixed with the protein from the hemp seeds and nutritional yeast, is a great way to make sure you’re meeting your needs! Recipe: 3 tablespoons lemon juice 🍋 4 garlic cloves 🧄 1+ 1/2 cups walnut 1/2 cup nutritional yeast ½ cup hemp seeds 2 cups spinach or green of choice 🥬 ¼ cup basil ¼ cup olive oil Pinch of salt 🧂
