Things that give me joy: disconnecting from my phone to be present with the people i love, exploring grocery stores, taking a shower after a long day & getting in comfy clothes, clean sheets, laughing until i’m crying, big white cozy robes, date nights, having my hair played with, the way matt smells, evening baseball games, margaritas, chips ‘n salsa, peanut butter, & lately any berry i can get my hands on 👇🏻
smoothie base: frozen butternut squash, cauliflower & blueberries. i added in 1 scoop @ancientnutrition sprouted vanilla protein & fiber, 1 tbsp organic peanut butter, 1/2 tsp @sunpotion ashwagandha, cinnamon, & @threetreesfoods unsweetened almond milk.
topped with unsweetened coconut, cacao nibs, @larkellenfarm pumpkin fig grain-free granola, & more pb!
How many meals should i eat in a day?
as always, it depends on your goals!
in the fitness industry, the message that you need to eat 6-8 meals a day has been hammered home to constantly "feed the metabolic fire" or to give your muscles a constant supply of protein.
however, this recommendation does not have any science to back it up, and it was largely just a push from supplement companies in order to sell protein powder and meal replacement shakes.
research has shown that you can optimize muscle growth by eating a meal of ~40g of protein every 4 hours, which translates to about 4 meals per day if you spread them out evenly. make sure that your total calories and protein intake are dialed in because that's the most important factor!
if building muscle isn't your main goal, then meal frequency doesn't matter at all! eating less often might even be the "healthiest" choice for longevity by incorporating periods where you don't eat (fasting).
i try to get the best of both worlds by eating 4 meals a day when i'm in a growth phase (muscle building), and then by fasting and eating 2 meals a day when i'm cutting (fat loss).
in this meal, i made a meal-sized salad with grilled steak tips, and roasted carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini. i made a homemade “peanuty” thai dressing with peanut butter, soy sauce, and olive oil.
A little bougie bowl action from yesterday ✨ being so extra with the toppings but they really make all the difference! chia seed pudding (recipe below) with blueberry compote, cashew butter, pistachios and coconut flakes. to make the chia seed pudding i used 1 cup of @thenewbarn almond milk, 6 tbsps of @navitasorganics chia seeds, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and if you want it a little sweet add some maple syrup. stir it really well and store it in the fridge overnight. hope everyone had an amazing weekend 💓

The shoalhaven region is filled with over 100 incredible beaches, much like this little gem, honeymoon bay, situated in jervis bay. the unthinkably clear waters of jervis bay are largely due to the meeting of the east australian current and cool waters off bass strait. these combined currents flush the water around the bay, providing nutrient rich water from the nearby continental shelf. the marine park contains over 230 species of seaweed and 210 species of reef fish. we love it and look forward to sharing more wonders of the region in times ahead firstname.lastname@example.org#shoalhaven#seaweed#healthyfood#nutrientdense#sun#beach#photography
