It's that time everyone. Let's Talk: Fats. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to dietary fat, what matters most is the type of fat you eat (and portion!) Rather than adopting a low-fat diet, it’s more important to focus on eating beneficial fats and avoiding fats with harmful effects. Don't know which is which? NO WORRIES!! Keep reading! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✔️ Unsaturated Fats: have been shown to lower disease risk and increase good cholesterol. Also, omega fatty acids are found in unsaturated fats. Omega fatty acids are essential nutrients in preventing and managing heart disease!! Examples: olive oil, nuts, seeds, and fish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❗️ Saturated Fats: While not as harmful as trans fats, saturated fats should be consumed in moderation. Found in: red meat, butter, cheese, and coconut oil. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❌ Trans Fats: increase disease risk, even when eaten in small quantities. Foods containing trans fats are primarily in processed foods made with trans fat from partially hydrogenated oil. Fortunately, trans fats have been eliminated from many of these foods. Yay! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope this was helpful in navigating the world of fats! If you have any questions, leave em below! #tastyteaspoon ✨

I am an advocate for healthy eating and living but there is a big difference between feeling restricted and stuck in a diet than having balanced and relaxed eating habits. Or we can achieve health through intentionally moving our bodies but not getting anxiety over missing one day of movement. Because think about it – in the grand scheme of your beautiful, fruitful life – that chocolate bar – that missed workout – will not make a difference. Do what is best for YOU and try to silence the noise that has brainwashed our society into being scared of bananas.
• sleeping tips • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ i just cannot turn my mind off. I keep thinking about the future, the present, the past and get very overwhelmed... anyone else? In case you are in the same sleepless boat as me, i thought i would share some easy additions to my diet that have seemed to help some: - Almonds (suprisingly contain a high dose of melatonin) - Chamomile Tea (contains a flavonoid compound called apigenin that is helpful for curing insomnia!) - Kiwi (contains many sleep-promoting compounds like anthocyanins, potassium, magnesium, and folate) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ i'm not insisting that these additions will be the cure to your sleepless nights, but hopefully will help you doze off. ALSO-- just a little reminder that whatever you can’t control is out of your hands. breathe and let it go. This is a good reminder not only today but everyday. you only have control of your universe. adapt, pivot, and repeat as needed. xoxo #tastyteaspoon✨🕊
A naturally sweetened almond joy (but make it healthy) wannabe. These are both a snack and a dessert, and are quite the delicious bites if I do say so myself. Growing up, I was always obsessed with Almond Joys (ik unpopular opinion) and have been scheming of healthier alternatives. Well folks, I’ve done it.

I have never been one to be big on pastas or dough-y desserts, but when it comes to bread: I am all in. Now that I’ve been home for the last 4 months due to quarantine, I have been helping my mom in the kitchen quite a bit. Our go-to easy dinner is Italian, so I decided to spice it up with these Vegan Pesto Garlic knots and try to impress the fam a bit.

there’s nothing sexier than a big bowl of pasta with some veg meatballs. #ad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ but really. LOOK AT THIS. I partnered up with @lovelilbucks to create the most dreamy plant-based, buckwheat filled dinner recipe and I think that we really smashed this goal. I teased about these meatballs (plantballs?) a few months back but wanted to perfect them before releasing the recipe. But my friends, we have done it. Looking for a dinner recipe idea? Here ya go: 1 cup chickpeas, drained 1 tablespoon ground flax seed 3 tablespoons water 2 tbsp breadcrumbs 2 tbsp @lovelilbucks original sprouted buckwheat 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1 teaspoons onion powder 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley 1/2 teaspoon salt - or to taste 1 box of your favorite pasta + sauce ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HOW TO: 1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth 2. Make your flax seed "eggs" - mix 2.5 tablespoons of ground flax seed with 6 tablespoons of water. Let sit for 10-15 minutes. 3. Mix together the chickpeas and flax seed eggs. 4. Mix in the remaining ingredients. If the mixture is too sticky, add more breadcrumbs half a tablespoon at a time. If too dry, add a little chickpea liquid or oil. 5. Form the chickpea mixture into meatballs and place onto a parchment-lined baking dish. 6. In a 450 degree oven, bake the chickpea meatballs for 20-25 minutes, turning over halfway through. 7. Add these plant-balls to your favorite pasta + sauce combo and enjoy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ that’s it *chefs kiss*
