Reducing Stress & Inflammation. 

Seriously, if you’ve been:

  • Confused about what to eat
  • Intimidated or avoiding exercise
  • Experiencing pain in your muscles, joints, stomach/digestive system, or mind (yesss that ever so quiet reel of negative self-talk that you no longer consciously hear)
  • Or annoyed that you have the self control of a squirrel in front of a pile of nuts before winter

Then it’s time to quiet the noise on the $4.2 trillion wellness industry and learn how to listen to your body as the best guide for what to eat, how to move, and so much more. Stress and inflammation are at the root of dis-ease in the body. When they are present in the body it distracts resources that could have been utilized for healing. It’s one thing when this is a short-term situation, however, the vast majority of humans today experience chronic stress which wreaks havoc on your body on a cellular level.

"Listen to your body's wisdom, which expresses itself through...

10 Tips to Reduce Stress This Holiday Season

health mindset movement Dec 18, 2019

The holidays and New Year can bring forward literally ALL the things we may have been avoiding throughout the year. No matter what’s true for you this time of year, I challenge you to utilize one or multiple of the following tips so that you enjoy your experience regardless of what it looks like this year for you. 

Time is the most precious currency we have. I wasted years reliving past stories, negative thought patterns, & believing I didn’t fit in anywhere. Even if you are currently going through challenging times, how can you challenge your mind to find joy and things to be grateful for. 

Here are some of my favorite tips to help you do just that:

  1. Schedule time for self-care. Whether it’s 5 minutes or an hour creating space to tend to your own needs in a season where we predominantly show up for others it will allow your body time to recharge and counter any stress that comes your way this season.
  2. Drink extra water. The holidays have an abundant...

Reduce Stress In 4-Minutes Or Less

Morning meditation, movement, staying hydrated, journaling, and eating a diet rich of fresh whole foods are all great ways to reduce the overall burden and stress has on the mind and body. However, what do you do if you’re currently in a massive life transition where everything is in flux, or you’re working 60+ hour weeks?

One of the biggest areas I work with clients around is reducing stress during transitional periods in their life, and that starts with awareness. Awareness is a topic I have shared many times here on J’adore this year because when we have awareness, we are at choice.

We are ALWAYS at choice, however, sometimes the negative automatic patterns we’ve been using to cope with a situation makes us feel captive to them rather than feeling empowered to make a positive change.

While the present scenario might not be able to change drastically in the moment, we can drastically shift our perspective and the emotional stress our current reaction to a...

DIY Oat Milk

food health Aug 15, 2019

There’s no denying it, non-dairy alternatives aren’t the same as their dairy-counterparts. Not in texture or taste, but that’s okay - they aren’t made from dairy! The main perk of these products is that they don’t create a reaction in the body for those of us intolerant to dairy. 

While many dairy lovers (all personal responses I’ve heard) scoff at nut milk alternatives, quite a few have fallen in love with oat milk. It offers a much creamy texture than almond milk and has a subtle sweet nutty taste. 

DIY Oat Milk is great for two main reasons:

  1. Store bought milks can be costly & making your own is a simple way to trim expenses
  2. Avoiding exposure to food various food additives 

Point two is worth expanding on, but first, recipe time. 

What you’ll need:

    • Blender
    • Sieve (fine mesh strainer), cheese cloth, or some crafty AF skills
    • Bowl
    • Sealed container to store oat milk
    • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats 
      • If...

3 Health Coach Approved Recipes for 4th of July

food health Jul 02, 2019

I will start this blog off by saying there are a lot of talented craft cocktail makers out there and I am not particularly one of them. However, I have been told I make a delicious old fashion that even converted me over to loving whiskey a few years back!

I’ll predominantly stick to my lane in health & life coaching, so I am here to make sure you stay as hydrated as possible while celebrating our beautiful country this week. 

For these recipes, I chose to focus on using tequila, gin, and vodka but feel free to substitute your favorite spirit for any of the below recipes that make sense to you!

Over the last few years my body has become highly sensitive to alcohol and even one drink can leave me feeling hungover the next day. If alcohol no longer agrees with you or you choose to opt-out, you can always make the recipes mocktail style or add a few drops of CBD oil to add a subtle level of relaxation in.

While you do not have to completely cut out alcohol to be...

5 Nutrients to Increase Before Summer

health Apr 11, 2019

There is nothing like a change in weather to boost the morale of a whole state! This warm weather has me itching for more sun, time on the lake paddle boarding, hiking our gorgeous parks, and pretty much any adventure you can name—thanks to the ladies at j’adore Detroit; they always keep us in the know!

As we pass through spring on our way to summer, it’s important to intentionally help the body transition and prepare for the upcoming season. Here are 5 nutrients to begin increasing to ensure your mind & body will thrive for all your summer shenanigans:

  • SUNSHINE:

    While we still have dips in temperature, the days are longer and the sun is OUT and shining so much more. Start taking advantage of the extra light now to maximize the light of our short mid-western summers.

    Increased exposure to natural sunlight will gradually prepare your skin for more time outdoors, regulate hormones by helping balance your circadian rhythm, improve moods, enhance sleep quality,...
