In @sinmasorganic I've found the ingredients I needed for my kitchen, not only fresh and organic fruits and vegetables, but also nuts, seeds and drinks. Every single ingredient has its own history, if you go to the shop during the morning you can talk to the farmer who has grown the products you are buying. Special remark to this sesame seeds by @ordinatura, a company 100% social 100% ecological and that recruit people with disabilities to give them the opportunity they deserve. By the way, @sinmasorganic is one of the only shops in Spain with ecological certification itself! Love it!
Pates from: @sampere_barcelona (my talented cousin!)
En @sinmasorganic he encontrado los ingredientes que necesito para mi cocina, no solo productos frescos y ecológicos certificados, también frutos secos, semillas y zumos que preparan ellos mismos 🍏🍉🍒🍐🍊🥕🥒 Cada producto que venden tiene su pequeña historia, muchos de ellos los traen cada día el pequeño agricultor que cuida sus frutas y verduras conos si fueran para si propia familia, si vas al mediodía seguramente te encuentres con alguno de ellos ;-) destacó especialmente este sésamo tostado con cacao y coco que utilizaré en mi próxima receta. De la marca @ordinatura, una empresa 100% social ecológica y que cree en ella integración y la solidaridad, contratando a personas con discapacidades dándoles un trabajo estable y de calidad 💕✨
Si no podéis venir hasta Sarrià que sepáis que @sinmasorganic te lleva en bici las frutas y verduras que les pidas☺️ #ComidaReal
Los platos los hace mi primo @sampere_barcelona y los puedes comprar online ;-)

When I was trying to lose weight the last thing I wanted to do was cook dinner when I got home. 🤦🏽♀️
I knew that if I wanted to take my health and weight loss goal seriously 💪🏼, I needed to have a plan that didn't involve having Dominoes on speed dial. 🍕 💜
So I’m guessing you hate meal prep 🙅🏽and want to know how can cooking at home or meal prepping 👩🏽🍳 can be faster and less of a chore. 💯
✅ If so get started with my almost no cook easy meal prep on the blog this week! 🥑🥕🍆

No fancy meal prep containers required. ☺️🙌
Today is this sweet little nuggets birthday! He shares it with my mom, which I happen to find pretty cool. Also, it gets me out of any and all future birthday presents for her since he was such an expensive gift.⠀⠀
He was 3 in this picture with his brother on the way. Adding a baby to the family wasn't easy for him. It was just me and him. He was (still is) my little guy and had my full attention. When he walked into the room after I had his brother he walked passed him. He wouldn't even acknowledge him. It was a little scary! But he has turned into the most amazing big brother. He is a protector. He is a teacher (of good and bad things, ha!). He is caring and considerate. He wants everyone around him to be happy and laugh. He is wild. He is free. And I couldn't be more proud of this little 6 year old boy who will forever have my heart.
From @meowmeix - Hi guys, here’s breakdown of some of my meal ideas! 😊 I like to eat multiple small meals a day so that way I can pretty much eat every 3 hours 💜 Nothing wrong with eating a few big meals - but this is my preferred style during the week because I’m on Team Always Hungry 🍽 Swipe or read below for more info:
Turkey Salad Jar Layers bottom to top:
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1 cup cherry tomatoes, 1 cup sautéed cabbage in 1 tsp olive oil and @flavorgod seasoning, 4oz ground turkey (regular not the lean kind) seasoned with Everything Spicy @flavorgod, 1 cup spinach & cilantro.
Bison Veggie Combo:
4oz bison (cooked with turmeric, garlic powder, cumin & black pepper), 3oz sauerkraut, 1 cup yellow cauliflower, 1 cup sautéed cabbage in 1 tsp olive oil and @flavorgod seasoning.
Shrimp Veggie Combo:
3-4oz wild caught shrimp cooked in 1 tsp olive oil + seasoning, 1/2 red bell pepper, & 1 cup cauliflower.
Egg Salad Jar Layers bottom to top:
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1 cup cherry tomatoes, 1 yellow bell pepper, 1/2 cup cucumber, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup chickpeas, 1/2 cup spinach + parsley.
I pour salad jars onto a plate to eat it.
Meals keep great up to 5 days in the fridge, except seafood I keep up to 3 days. —

Vietnamese food in Berlin >> this vegan curry with pumpkin, tofu, snow peas, carrots, onions, and potatoes was the perfect lil dinner between classes 🍚🥕🥔🌶 now for 3 hours of learning about Neu! and streaming royalties ha ha #musicschool
It turns out, having my kids in school has been a real dream. A couple days ago, I happily fed my eyes with art and my belly with this avo-roll after I challenged myself to find a new (to me) place to eat! Obscure, cheap and delicious; a perfect combination! After, I enjoyed a donut that cost more than my lunch. Balance achieved.
Avocados 👉🏻 are high in mono-saturated fatty acids (the good fats), which are documented to protect against heart disease, improve insulin sensitivity, strengthens bones (good fats allow bones to absorb calcium efficiently), positively impact mood and more.
I’m shocked I’m not having my yogurt bowl this morning. 🙊 I remembered that I had Pumpkin Spice Crunch cereal from @specialk & I’m a basic bitch so I love all things pumpkin spice. 🎃✨ This was an okay flavor, not as strong as I wish it was but I’ll definitely eat the rest of the box. 🥄
SPIRULINA! Experimented with adding more green stuff today and ended up with this green beauty.
1/2 c spinach, 1 c almond milk, 1/2 cup frozen mango and cherry combo, 1/2 c frozen zucchini (don't knock it til you try it), 1tbs almond butter, 1 scoop @cleanprogram protein powder, 1 scoop @vitalproteins collagen peptide, 1 scoop spirulina! Topped with @purely_elizabeth chocolate probiotic sea salt granola.

Despite the bumps in the road, we keep moving forward an still eat healthy😉 Today's school lunch is garbanzo beans, kalamata olives, cucumber, tomatoes with extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar & Himalayan sea salt.

Super-duper Stressful Week 1 out of 4 this semester is halfway done and I'm celebrating with a GIVEAWAY with @majusuperfoods and with a #sinkintosavasana sesh💕 one way I like to take time out of my day to unwind and relax and take part in some #selflove is by doing a bible study, listening to music, lighting a candle, popping a delish pumpkin spice fat ball in my mouth, and roll in on some of the "Calm" blend from @thenaturalcupboard . There is nothing better than taking even just 15 minutes to refocus and ground yourself! One of my absolute favorite things to do is to write down three things I'm grateful for and when I get stressed or down, I focus on those things! Also, the new Mental Mushrooms from @majusuperfoods have helped me reduce anxiety and reduce fatigue. All it takes is 2 grams (one scoop!) a day to see benefits! Want the recipe for the Fat Balls which use the @majusuperfoods mental mushroom blend? dEATS below!
1/2 Cup of Coconut Shreads
1/4 Cup of coconut butter
1/4 cup of runny @wild_friends pumpkin spice pb

Happy #wellnesswednesday , especially to all my chocolate lovers! 🍫💣These chocolate fat bombs are perfect as a snack to hold you over, or as a dessert to satisfy your sweet cravings! I slightly modified the recipe found in Amy Ramos' book: "Complete Guide to the Ketogenic Diet For Beginners" by upping the Stevia a bit and by adding some coconut flakes for an extra touch. Swipe left to see how I made them and read below for the recipe! They literally take 5 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the fridge to harden. Let me know what you think!
Ingredients for 12 Fat Bombs: * 3/4 cup coconut oil
* 1/4 cup cocoa powder
* 1/4 cup almond butter * 1/8 teaspoon chili powder * 6 drops liquid stevia * Coconut flakes
1.) Line a mini-muffin tray with paper cupcake liners
2.) Turn the stove to low heat and put the following ingredients in a small saucepan: coconut oil, cocoa powder, almond butter, chili powder, and stevia.
3.) Heat the mixture until the coconut oil has melted, and then use a whisk to thoroughly blend all of the ingredients.
4.) Pour the mixture into the muffin cups and put the tray in the fridge for about 10 minutes, or until the treats are nice and firm.
5.) Put the bombs in a container and keep in the freezer until you are ready to serve.
6.) Enjoy! .

Brenden is making some more today on his day off and can't wait 😁
Recipe is on my blog! 7 ingredients! 💛🍴 WWW.FITCHRISSY.COM
Low(er) sugar, high protein acai bowl! Acai bowls are nutritious, but known for being sneaky sugar bombs. I cut the sugar by reducing the amount of fruit I blend the acai with, and adding cauliflower for volume! Voila - a healthier option 😋 the base of this bowl is one @traderjoes acai packet, frozen cauliflower, 1/2 banana, strawberries, @vitalproteins collagen peptides and monk fruit to taste. I topped it with cherries, blueberries, @siggisdairy plain skyr, coconut, passionfruit, almond/cashew butter, bee pollen and some homemade granola! Happy humpday! 🐫
