How to reduce bloating (aka the #1 question I get in my DM when it's a few days before your vacations, weddings, bachelorette parties, etc 👙👰🏻💃🏻): __ Warm lemon water in the mornings - lemon is a gentle diuretic, and it alkalizes your body, and helps get things moving. Tip: drink it with a straw to protect your teeth! You can also add ginger and mint to soothe digestive issues. __ Cut down on adding salt to your meals a few days before your event. __ Slow way down while eating. Eating too quickly can cause you to swallow more air than you normally would, and that extra air in your digestive tract leads to bloating and gassiness! __ Stick with real, unprocessed foods (always a good call!) and limit sugar and starchy carbs. Limiting gluten and dairy before your event can also help reduce inflammation (and give your skin a nice glow!). __ Choose your veggies strategically avoid ones that may cause bloating for you. It’s different for different people, but some common ones may be onions, artichoke, corn, raw broccoli, raw cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, raw kale. __ Check ingredient labels for notorious bloaters like sugar alcohols (typically end in -itol like sorbitol, xylitol) and artificial sweeteners (often in gum, protein bars, sugar-free packaged snacks). __ Speaking of gum, chewing gum causes you to swallow air which can bloat the belly, so maybe cut down on the gum before your event too! __ Take an epsom salt bath 2 or 3 days before the event (not everyday!). Add 2 cups of epsom salt to your bath and soak for 20 minutes or so. This pulls toxins and excess water out of your body! Make sure to hydrate afterwards. __ Stay active and get those workouts and walks in. __ Drink lots of water (half your body weight in oz) & tea - peppermint, ginger, and dandelion tea are great options! __ Buh-bye bloat! 👋🏼👋🏼 Do you have any tried and true de-bloating tips!? 📷: @currentlykristen
First enchiladas, then spaghetti and meatballs, and now BAGELS! This is seriously the week of satisfying all of your carby cravings in a light, healthy way! I made these bagels on my story yesterday (you can check it out on my breakfast highlights if you missed it!) with @simplemills almond flour pizza dough mix (the easiest shortcut ever!), and enjoyed it with @kitehillfoods chive cream cheese, and OMG it really did the trick! __ Here's how to make them: 1 box @simplemills pizza dough mix 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 3 tbsp avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil 6 tbsp water Toppings: I used sesame seeds, everything bagel seasoning, and flaky sea salt Mix all ingredients together in a bowl (you can add a bit more oil if it's too dry), press the dough into a donut pan, top with desired toppings, and bake at 400 for 17ish minutes. This will make 6 small bagels. Allow to cool before slicing and toasting, and serve with your favorite spread or with some 🥑 and 🍳 yummm!
I’ve been dying to share this recipe with you and it’s finally up on the blog! These Instant Pot Turkey Meatballs and Spaghetti Squash are a match made in heaven and seriously so quick and easy to make… the whole meal is done in 30 minutes or less! __ So you guys I know I’m all about clean, real ingredients. One of the first things I teach my clients is how to break down nutrition labels and be on the lookout for sneaky sugars. Which is why I love finding products that take all of the guesswork out of it for me. I cooked these turkey meatballs in @LuciniItalia’s Organic Roasted Garlic Marinara which is made with the simplest ingredients like fresh tomatoes, garlic, and spices, and no added sugar or weird preservatives. Plus its beyond delish… totally makes the meal and gives it a TON of flavor! Can't wait for you guys to make this… its definitely going to be a staple in your weeknight dinner routine! #LuciniInspired #LuciniPartner #ad
Cheesy chicken enchiladas that won't make you feel the need to unbutton your jeans after devouring!? YES WAY!! These Chicken Enchiladas with Roasted Tomatillo Sauce may be one of my favorite recipes yet. 🌮🥑🌿I made a few ingredient upgrades from your typical enchiladas... @sietefoods almond flour tortillas, avocado oil for cooking, and the most delicious (and easy!) homemade tomatillo sauce rather than a packaged one... and let me tell you, the result was BEYOND. Seemingly decadent and super satisfying, but still light, fresh, and healthy! Grab the recipe on the blog (link in bio!).
