There can be SUCH controversy with health and diet related videos, so let me first state by saying the most important thing is loving YOURSELF. Being “skinny” will not answer all of your problems. No matter your size, shape, age, gender or race, we need to focus on positivity in ourselves, because we all battle our inner demons. I am on the journey of learning to love myself and this body I have been given and I urge you all to do the same

***Chai Spiced Quinoa ***modified from http://bit.ly/1n8CECj
2 cups almond milk, more for serving (I used Unsweetened Vanilla)
1 cup dry organic quinoa
1/2 Chopped apple
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 pinch cloves
1 pinch cardamom
Stevia, or other sweetener, to taste
In a medium saucepan, bring almond milk, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom to a boil. Stir in quinoa and reduce heat to a low. Cover with lid and allow to simmer 15 – 20 minutes until almond milk has been absorbed and quinoa is tender.
Top with chopped apple, cinnamon & Stevia.
Serve warm topped with more almond milk.
2 Packs of Pureed Pure Acai (I got mine at Whole Foods)
1 Cup of Almond Milk (Use any milk you like!)
Assorted Fruits & toppings
Blend the acai packets & almond milk together until they form a smoothie like consistency. Pour into a bowl & top with whatever you like! Granola, coconut, fruit, chia seeds, caco nibs & nuts are great!
***Scramble Stuffed Sweet Potato***
1 Large Sweet Potato
Cooking oil of your choice (I used coconut)
Chopped veggies (the amount depends on how much you can fit into your potato)
-I used mushrooms, onions, chives, tomatoes, green bell peppers, & spring greens, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand!
Egg whites (Feel free to use regular eggs, or if you’re Vegan/Vegetarian sub for tofu!)
(I make a huge batch of baked sweet potatoes every Sunday night for the week)
Preheat oven to 375 & place washed sweet potatoes on a tinfoil lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes (for large potatoes) flip over, and bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until they are super tender. Serve warm! *If you’re using pre-made sweet potatoes, place it on a plate and microwave for about 2-3 minutes depending on size!
Sauté your veggies on a medium heat with whatever oil you like. Deglaze your pan with some veggie stock, this will get all the yummy goodness that’s stuck on the pan. Finally, add in your greens & cover on low until they’ve wilted! Add in your egg whites and scramble until they’re fluffy and cooked all the way through! Slice sweet potato in half & fill with your hot scramble! Top with halved sugarplum tomatoes, chives some pepper to taste!
A few things about my diet: When I was 17 I got a protracted case of mono which caused me to be violently ill after every thing I ate or drank. After almost a year of not being able to keep any food down, I had lost about 30 pounds and despite getting better from mono, my gut was permanently damaged. As shown by an endoscopy my stomach lining & esophagus were torn to shreds and I was diagnosed with non ulcer dyspepsia. From there my doctor, my nutritionist and I came to realize that dairy, grains, and foods with high fat content were causing my digestive issues and pain. I have been dairy free since being diagnosed with an allergy over 3 years ago, and I’ve been grain free since last January. I listen to my body and stay away from foods that upset my stomach and digestion, hoping that in time I will be able to fully heal my gut and reintroduce both dairy and grains back into my diet. If you are thinking of undergoing a lifestyle change regarding your diet, advice your doctor so you can come up with a plan together.
