Wellness Wedneday

This week has been such busy one with both my older kids graduating. One graduated from Middle school to High school and the other graduated from Elementary to Middle School. I’m fine, it’s fine. As I was going through all these emotions I kept thinking of ideas on how to stay healthy durning this busy time. I wanted to share some tips on how I balance life with keeping my wellness a top priority.

Fast food can really be a killer to your health goals. Most fast food items have so much added salt and fat to their food, it can turn your body upside down fast. One of my go-to fast food items comes from StarBucks.

Here is how to order this Pink drink and keep it Healthy.

-Start by ordering a Venti unsweet Passion Tea with no water.

-Ask for light coconut milk, 2 pumps of sugar free vanilla syrup and 2 Stevia.

-Finally, Always ask to add the freeze dried strawberries in it.

Another trick I do is add TRIM to my morning routine. This helps with my metabolism and helps with cravings. It also has the LIQUID COLLAGEN I am always raving about that helps so much with anti-aging.

Here is my daily routine for Collagen

1 tablespoon Trim

1 tablespoon Pure Liquid Collagen 

Another huge announcement is that Modere just released a new flavor for  Trim. PEACH. I got mine early to try and it is amazing. I highly recommend you getting this flavor if you need some more.

Meal prepping has been a huge life savor for me when trying to get dinner done or when I need a fast lunch. I prepare chicken and steak like the picture above. I use very simple seasonings so they can go with any meal I make.

Here are a few recipes I like to use when I meal prep. I also love using these containers when I meal prep.
