meal preppin’ once again

After much back and forth {and to be honest laziness}, I decided it was time to meal prep for the week once again.  This has been a back and forth relationship indeed.  I used to go over the top with the prep and it ended up stressing me out–not the end goal.  After trial and error, I’ve found the best way for me, and here is how it goes… Continue reading

thai turkey chili

It may be Spring, but in Colorado, that still means cold, windy and/or snowy days here and there.  And when that happens, I am in the mood for something to warm me up, so how about some chili?  Thai Turkey Chili to be exact!  It’s so good.  Good things can happen when you have some random ingredients laying around.

Here is a recap of the last few weeks, plus a delicious omelette… Continue reading

Cheers!  Today marks two week into my Whole30.  Yes, I am still rocking and rolling along.  I stopped the everyday updates.  The days started running together and there wasn’t much to update daily.  So here I am.  I do have a few tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make things go a bit more smooth during this journey.

Day three in the books and I am rearing and ready to rock!  My Whole 30 is going swell so far (if you can’t tell).  I surprisingly haven’t really been feeling the effects of the Whole 30 timeline (knock on wood).  I am not complaining though!  Here are some things I have noticed so far: Continue reading

Happy day two of the Whole 30!  Holy sleep cycles!  This is my biggest non-scale victory so far, and it’s only day two.  Last night, I got the best night of sleep I have had since coming home for the holidays.  To be honest, I cannot recall the last time I got NINE hours of sleep–that’s right, nine!  I even went into “deep” sleep for the longest time since getting my Fitbit for Christmas.   Continue reading

new year the whole30 way | day one

whole30 | January | new year | solutions | health | Moving Mountains Wellness

I am doing the January Whole30 reset.  Two years ago, I did a Paleo Challenge that sort of morphed into a Whole30.  I didn’t do my research.  I was new to it all.  I begun with paleo and as I did more research, I stumbled upon the Whole30 and began following the program then.  I slipped a few times, I cut it a day short, I didn’t scrutinize labels… It wasn’t really a Whole30 at all, which brings me to now.

Need a quick, easy and healthy breakfast or snack idea?

Jump on the avocado toast train.

I just toasted two pieces of my favorite gluten-free bread, mashed half an avocado and spread it on the toast, and finished it all off with some red pepper flakes and Trader Joe’s Everything-but-the-Bagel Sesame seasoning.

it’s easy being green smoothie

it's easy being green smoothie | Journey for JessiHello beautiful souls.

It’s the Sunday before finals for me, and I am doing everything in my power to chill out.  That’s right, actually chill and relax.

Finals are usually the time that student flip out.  That used to be me, and well, deep down there is still a part of me that freaks out a tad… BUT I can control my stress levels.

Here is what I’ve been doing this weekend to prep my mind and body that DOESN’T involve the obvious studying. Continue reading
