🍏 Happiness isn’t something we “find” — it’s something we CREATE.

Drinking water instead of soda? Going for a quick walk instead of scrolling on your phone for hours?

They may not seem like much…

But eventually, all those small choices add up to a happier, healthier life.

So, what’s a small habit you can change today that could move you a little closer to happiness?

Some ideas:

👉 Start your day with water before your coffee
👉 End your day by writing a short gratitude list
👉 Stretch every 2-3 hours if you work at a desk

You might be surprised at how much better you feel in just a few days!

Tell me ONE small habit you’re committing to this week in the comments!

🤔 Commonly Asked Question: What’s the best exercise for fat loss?

The answer: The best workouts for fat loss are the same as the best exercises for HEALTH and general fitness.

When I work with clients, we focus on weighted workouts with at least 24 hours between working the same muscle groups. Then, we add more weight to the mix every 5-6 weeks. This work because building muscle actually raises your metabolic rate even at rest, unlike cardio which only burns calories while you are in motion.

💡 If you don’t already do this… make INTENTIONAL time to relax at night!

I know that may sound like a big ask — especially if you have “fun” stuff like household chores on your to-do list.

Here’s something to think about: This downtime allows your brain to recharge, improving problem-solving and creative thinking skills.

Plus it can help you unwind from a busy day.

AND it also will help you relax and refresh so you can hit it hard tomorrow!

🤔 Mindful activity? Or mindless activity?

Either way, doing something soothing is exactly what our brains need sometimes!

Today, it's all about what makes your downtime enjoyable.
AND… to paraphrase the old saying, it’s also all about WORK HARD, RELAX HARDER! 😂

What's your go-to activity for downtime?

So if you’re seeing this, take this as a sign to let go of those old stories you’ve been telling yourself about what you can and can’t do…

💤 Is your bedroom sleep-friendly? 💤

You might love falling asleep to your favorite TV show…

Or, maybe you have a habit of scrolling through your phone before bed...

But having a dark, cool, quiet environment can play a big role in how well you sleep.

Here’s what to keep in mind:

🛌 Temperature: Aim for 60ºF to 71.6ºF (15.6ºC to 22ºC)
🛌 Noise: For most people, quieter is better — or use a white noise machine
🛌 Light: Keep your bedroom dimly lit at night to fall asleep faster
🛌 Bedding: Get a great mattress and wash your sheets regularly
🛌 Keep it Clean: Only 26% of people with messy bedrooms get a good night of sleep

So, does your bedroom pass the test? 😉

If not (or if it depends on the day!), set aside a few minutes every morning or night to keep your sleep space tidy!

😋 3 Nighttime Snack Swaps! 😋

This might surprise you, but nighttime snacking isn't a dealbreaker.

If you're eating enough during the day and you're STILL craving sweet, salty, fatty snacks at night, here are a few alternatives:

Pizza 👉 Half of a turkey sandwich on sprouted grain bread
The turkey is a better choice because it has less fat and calories, PLUS it contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps you feel tired.

Ice cream 👉 Greek yogurt
Swap out ice cream’s calories, fat, and sugar for Greek yogurt’s high protein. Tip: top it with berries to add potassium and melatonin, both of which can help you sleep.

Sugary cereal 👉 Oatmeal
Upgrade the empty carbs and low fiber of breakfast cereal with oatmeal, which is warm, soothing, and loaded with fiber — not to mention sleep-boosting melatonin.

🤔 Myth or Fact: Daydreaming can help me be more productive. 🤔

💡 Fact: Giving yourself “daydreaming” breaks — or downtime when your mind has a chance to wander — can boost creativity, problem-solving skills, and brain health.

🧠⚡ This mindless activity activates your brain — including your default mode network (DMN).

Your DMN is linked to things like creativity, memories, your sense of “self,” and even ethics. 🧑‍🎨

So keep working toward your goals, but also make some room for intentional downtime!

🫑 Ready for a delicious plant-based recipe idea that’s fab for meal prep?

It’s Quinoa & Black Bean Stuffed Peppers, and it’s PACKED with plant-based protein and fiber to fill you up and keep you feeling satisfied!

Quinoa and Black Bean Stuffed Peppers
(Serves 4)

✅ 1 cup (190g) quinoa, rinsed
✅ 2 cups (480ml) low-sodium vegetable broth
✅ 4 large bell peppers, halved and seeded
✅ 1 can (15 ounces or 425g) black beans, drained and rinsed
✅ 1 cup (150g) frozen corn, thawed
✅ 1 tsp (5ml) olive oil
✅ Sea salt and pepper, to taste
✅ Optional: 3 tsp taco seasoning (adjust to taste) and/or ½ cup (50g) shredded cheese (use dairy-free cheese for vegan option)

Bring the vegetable broth to a boil in a saucepan. Add the quinoa, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, let it sit covered for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.

While the quinoa is cooking, preheat your oven to 375°F/190°C. Place the bell pepper halves in a baking dish, cut side up.

In a large bowl, mix the cooked quinoa, black beans, and thawed corn. Drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt, pepper, and taco seasoning. Stir well to combine all the flavors.

Evenly spoon the quinoa mixture into the bell pepper halves. If you're using cheese, sprinkle it over the top.

Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Then uncover and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes, or until the peppers are tender and the cheese is melted and slightly browned.

Enjoy the stuffed peppers hot, with any additional toppings you like — avocado, plain Greek yogurt, or a sprinkling of cilantro.

Ever stopped to think how much power lies in the food you eat? 🤔

🕒 How many times have I said to myself: Why did I wait so long!?

It's a common feeling, right? All too often, we let inertia get in the way when it comes to doing something new or different…

Or anything that moves us just the tiniest bit out of our comfort zones.

We even do it with our own health and fitness.

We tell ourselves: “I’ll start working out next week,” or “I’ll clean up my nutrition on Monday (or after I finish that bag of chips in the pantry).”

Here’s your reminder that the best time to start is NOW.

It pays off almost immediately in more energy, a better mood, and the pride of knowing that you are doing something GOOD for yourself!

As the saying goes, “Imperfect action beats perfect inaction.”

🛒 9 Pro-Level Grocery Tips 🛒

Grocery shopping is one of those chores most of us love to hate…

But the truth is, it plays a HUGE role in our health, results, and even our wallet! 💰

Here are some tips to help you take your grocery shopping to the next level!

1️⃣ Plan first. See what you have on hand and make a meal plan using up food that is about to expire. Then, make your grocery list.

2️⃣ Shop the edges of your store, but hit produce and eggs last.

3️⃣ Go seasonal and local for ultimate freshness and taste. Plus, you’ll be supporting local farms.

4️⃣ Buy in bulk (but only if it makes sense).

5️⃣ Download the app for your local grocery store for custom coupons, rebates on past purchases, and reward programs.

6️⃣ Try store brands & shop sales to save $$.

7️⃣ Read food labels (obviously).

8️⃣ Uncover the real pricing. Compare the unit price (e.g., per ounce or liter) to the price per container. You may not be getting as great a deal as you think!

9️⃣ Meet the staff! Your local fishmonger, butcher, and produce manager can steer you to great deals on the freshest food or suggest new items to try.

☀️ SAY GOOD MORNING TO THE SUN! ☀️

Getting a few minutes of sunshine in the morning isn’t just about breathing in fresh air — it can actually help you sleep better at night!

Here’s why:

🌞 It helps regulate your circadian clock — which controls your body’s sleep-wake cycle.
🌞 People who get a few minutes of sun in the morning tend to burn more body fat and have a leaner physique than those who get their sunshine later in the day.
🌞 Morning sunlight helps your body release cortisol early in the day — which boosts your metabolism, ability to focus, and immune system.

TIP: Neuroscientist Andrew Huberman recommends getting outside for 5-10 minutes on sunny mornings or 15-20 minutes on cloudy mornings.

💫 HEALTHY SWAP TIME 💫

Here’s a fast and easy heart-healthy swap that is a huge (+ delicious) upgrade!

✅ Change out your creamy dressings for olive-oil-based dressings.

You really can’t go wrong with olive oil!

Not only does it make a great salad dressing, BUT…

👉 you can use it in almost any kind of cooking without it breaking down.
👉 extra virgin olive oil can help lower your blood pressure and fight inflammation.
👉 EVOO can help improve the health of your blood vessels, which is good for your heart.
👉 AND it’s packed with antioxidants, which ward off cell damage.

MEANWHILE… Creamy dressings are often packed with saturated fats, trans fats, and other ingredients that can be BAD for heart health…

Here's a quick homemade dressing recipe to try:

3 parts olive oil
1 part vinegar (balsamic or apple cider works great!)
A pinch of salt and pepper
Optional: add a dash of garlic powder or dried herbs for extra flavor!

Just whisk them together and voilà! A simple, tasty dressing that's kinder to your heart.

🤡 DAD JOKE ALERT! 🤡

"Why did the heart go to the library? To improve its circulation!" 🤦

But seriously … Did you know that laughter is actually GOOD for your heart health?!

1. When you laugh, your brain releases endorphins. This creates a chain reaction that relaxes your arteries (boosting blood flow).

2. It also lowers stress hormones that constrict your blood vessels. Constricted vessels raise your risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack.

3. Laughing may also help rev up your immune system.

Pretty cool, right?
