It's so easy to compare and despair.
"They have health effortlessly...why can't mine be that way?"
I do it. You do it. We ALL do it.
But the truth is, no matter how someone else is living, your struggles to exist to help you grow and live the best life possible for you!
If healthy living, weight loss, getting your food life organized has not been easy for you then own that and keep working on it!
Instead of feeling like crap because it appears easy for someone else.
And above all else do not give up!
Just because it didn't work once doesn't mean it won't ever.

Question: "Are vegetarian lentil burgers lower in calories than beef burgers?" -Kelsey
Answer: While calories are a popular measure of healthy-or-not, I encourage you to explore how well the food keeps you satiated as opposed to just looking at calories! Every body reacts differently to foods; some bodies enjoy more protein, some do better with less protein and more complex carbs. That is up to you and your body to find out!
To figure this out: eat both foods in question slowly and on totally separate days. See how the foods feel as you eat; how quickly are you filling up, do you feel energized, sated, queezy, tired? 30 minutes later check in again; tired, nauseous, light, energized? Two hours later; hungry, sleepy, sick, bloated? This simple check in can tell you exactly what foods work well for your body and you can use it as a measure to determine how to eat in general.

Celery is an AMAZING food with so many health benefits. Here are some ways I look to incorporate celery into my diet:
Celery juice mixed with aloe Vera juice. I had some seriously dry skin at the start of this season. I used this combo to help me rehydrate and acclimate to the weather change!
Make your own homemade celery juice! This is one of my favorite ways to get my daily nutrients. All you need is organic celery and a juicer! I find it way more cost-efficient than hitting the juice shop. Sometimes I like to add extras like lemon and ginger. Ginger is especially great for cold and flu season

The first question is from Sherry; “why is it important to add flax seeds to your diet?”
Flax seeds may seem like one of those foods that you don’t want to buy because you don’t know how you will ever include it in your diet. BUT as far as health benefits go, it is one of my favorite seeds and I try to include flax every day. Flax seeds contain #omega3 fatty acids which are great for brain health as well as skin and nails. Studies have also shown them to reduce the risk of stroke and cancer. I always used to have nails that broke and peeled, but when I started adding flax to my diet, they changed to the most sturdy nails that would literally be as long as my arm if I didn’t cut...
