No Carb French Fries

K, well LOW CARB anyway!! My first thought was no way can you eat a turnip and believe it tastes like a french fry.

But my new food freedom hack says eat veggies most (green ones, not carb loaded potato ones) and the recipe says to chop this bad boy up and bake them with some seasoning so why not try it!? As I’m cutting them my eyes watered up a little and the scent reminds me to google if the turnip and the radish are related.

Baked at 425 for 45 minutes and it comes out looking like, get this, FRENCH FRIES!!! But, the taste!? Can a radish-esque looking green veggie (with 9g carbs) TASTE like a freaking carb loaded goodness like a potato (48g carbs)!? Inquiring minds want to know!!!

The answer is yes! Yes, that goofy turnip seasoned with garlic powder, parsley, and sea salt can taste like a got damn french fry!? WHAT!? MIND FREAKING BLOWN!!!

So, pin this recipe to your clean eating board and promise yourself you’ll try these this week (disclaimer I’ve had this recipe since May 2nd and just now tried it LOL)

Turnip French Fries

Parchment Paper

1 large turnips, peeled, cut into 1/2 x 4″ sticks

1 tsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp garlic powder & parsley blend

Sea salt (to taste)

1/4 tsp. black pepper

Preheat oven to 425. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine turnips with oil and seasonings. Toss to blend. Bake for 40-45 minutes, turning every 20, until crispy on the outside. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

….and as summer gets closer and the schedule gets busier and busier, healthy snacks on-the-go are becoming more and more CLUTCH… so I’m excited to FINALLY launch it this month!! I’m calling it “Swap Your SNACK Week!” 🍯🍒

beachbars
Starting May 28th, I will be hosting a 5 day “Swap Your Snack” challenge where we “healthify” our snack or breakfast each morning with a brand new gluten free, soy free snack instead!

Our goals would be to….

🍫Reduce our sugar intake throughout the day
🍫Ditch the mid-day crash or starvation mode that hits each day
🍫Kick the sugar cravings for something more satisfying
🍫Up our protein intake for the snack so we feel fuller longer
🍫Minimize the “grazing” or “snack binging” that happens to many of us
🍫Give our bodies some more natural focus early in the day
🍫Fuel ourselves with some great nutrition at the same time.

Cost is only $25, and you’ll receive 5 days worth of chocolate cherry and peanut butter chocolate superfood bars and a clean eating meal plan that I use for my nutrition each and every week!

I’ll be throwing in (as a free gift 🎁 ) a grocery shopping list to help you shop for breakfast lunch and dinner if you would like to go beyond health-ifying just your snacks.

Workouts are always optional for all participants but come FREE with the 5 day challenge as well!

Let’s ROCK the week together and this brand new challenge. Message me back for more info or send $25 through paypal HERE ☕️🍟😘❤️

How I edit my photos – a quick tutorial

Hi guys!

Editing photos is like one of my top 3 favorite things to do in my job description. I love snapping a pic and having the ability to bring it to life in 30 seconds or less and it goes from blah to transformed all right in the palm of my hands. I also love that I can be home on the couch and grab a pic from weeks ago at the beach to help give life to the words I’m trying to get across while I’m still in my PJs. : P

I could talk for hours and show you tons of before and afters or alll of my fave photo editing apps but let’s just take this one step at a time and start with my favorite go to photo editor: Snapseedimg_8277.jpg

I can’t remember if it cost money but if it did it was like a few dollars? Hands down the easiest app to grab and make the biggest impact with lots of looks and filters to do the work for you while you mess around with specific tools and learn what you like.

 

Here’s a photo from my camera roll as is:

Tap LOOKS then choose a filter; I love accentuate. It increases detail and saturation immediately like this:

 

Next up, TOOLS. From here I might choose HDR or go in and hand select things to brighten up or make more colorful but for today I just selected Drama:

I like Drama 2 and I slide up the selector tool to increase the saturation:

So you could stop there and save to your camera roll and post right to any of your social media channels! Sometimes I like to spark up the intensity and cool my photos off with the vivid cool in my iphone’s photo editing ability too:

And then I will crop it at 4:5 ratio for my Facebook and instagram feed, or 9:16 for stories.

For my Instagram feed I have an overall theme of bright, clear, high-contrasted photos so I try to keep that in mind when I edit. Every photo is treated separately because depending on where I take it the pic may be lit from behind, in a darker room, or shot directly under the sun, so I keep that in mind whenever I’m editing and try to stay close to the last few pics color themes and tones. I will be doing a blog post on how to take a good photo next, so stay tuned for that as well.

Other apps I love are BeautyPlus, Facetune, and VSCO. I’m going to show you some examples of how I use those apps in an upcoming post. I will be doing a blog post on how to take a good photo next, so stay tuned for that as well. 😉

Hope this helps, let me know in the comments if you have any questions or if you have any suggestions for future posts 🙂 always open to feedback from you guys.

xo, TJ

never follow a diet again

In the past year I’ve tried a lot of diets 😅
vegan, paleo, iifym, clean eating, vegetarian…

But do you know what I realized
NONE of them did? 🤨

me mindset
Stop the restriction mindset.

And of course, my way of dealing with that restriction once I was done with that plan was to EAT ALL THE THINGS I “couldn’t have” while I was following it.

Up until last year I would never follow a meal plan that went along with my program because I knew something about myself. I knew if I told myself I “couldn’t have chocolate or cake, or chips” that I would immediately binge on those exact things because I wouldn’t stop thinking about them the moment I said I couldn’t have them. The whole reason behind me dieting started last year because I hated my body. I was working out religiously and wanted to lose weight and see my abs so I thought I should be strict with my food. Well, honestly it worked for a while 🤷‍♀️ my abs started to pop and I was leaner than I’d been since my 20’s so everything seemed to be worth it.

UNTIL I COULDN’T DO IT ANYMORE.

The past month all of a sudden everything became an issue. I was getting anxiety around food, I was obsessed with everything about my body, I never felt like I was doing enough, and I avoided situations where I wouldn’t be in control of what foods I was eating.

I can remember being 12 and binge eating ice cream in the freezer because I was depressed about my body compared to my naturally thin best friend.

I can remember being 8 and coping with having to stay at home alone a lot by eating 3 gigantic bowls of sugary cereal at a time.

I can remember 2 months ago inhaling half a bag of Trader Joe’s macadamia nuts because I just couldn’t stop.

DIETING DOESN’T FIX THOSE ISSUES.

But you 100% CAN fix them, you just have to find your happy balance. 😌💜 Why? Because when you start realizing what you need to do to stop restricting in the first place 👉🏼 you can heal yourself (the WHOLE PERSON) and not just the food.

So I reflected on the things that helped me take my own wellness back. And researched (AND FOUND) the framework for the ✨FREE 2B NEW MINDSET FOOD HACK✨ Challenge.

The idea is not to do one thing perfectly – like eat the most “clean,” perfect diet – but rather to take care of yourself and looking after your physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual health.

Right this minute you can find the four guiding principles to true food freedom:

a breakthrough approach to weightloss,

a new way to look at food groups,

and start LOSING WEIGHT NOW!

And how to frame what you eat going forward so you never have to follow a diet again!

What does your Sunday Self Care Look Like?

Self care is 🙌🏻. I rocked my charcoal mask yesterday and had “girltime”. 😍❤️
.
Self care doesn’t have to be fancy. It doesn’t have to be perfect ambiance or even cost a lot of money. But …. it is so so so key.

Gosh, I remember my Sunday nights did not look like this a few years back. Or feel like this.
.
Rewind two years ago, and we would be gearing up for being passing ships in sea, week after week. Tom going one direction all over southern California with any where from one to three nights away a lot of the weeks and I the opposite direction working long nights.
.
Thankful for this time. Thankful for being able to curate our life, our business, and moments like this, in a very different way.
.
A new week is upon us, what will you do to create your perfect Sundays? 🙌🏻❤️
