Fancy taco salad using all left overs!
Spinach, purple cabbage, avocado, red bell pepper, green onion, and green and red salsa, topped with leftover “steakums” (organic, grass feed beef with onion and peppers).
So yummy! 💃

is doing yoga and eating healthy enough to help you lose weight or do I need other forms of exercise? According to my BMI, I'm overweight. How long should it take to lose about 20lb the healthy way?

I always try to remind people that losing weight is not a race. It honestly took me about two years to lose the fat and gain the muscle that I now have that makes me happy. It takes a lot of time and work, especially if like me you work and go to school full time.

Yoga and a healthy diet is plenty. It’s all I do and I feel satisfied.

But it’s not the form of exercise that matters, it’s the intensity and length. If you’re only doing 20 minutes of gentle yoga that’s nothing. If you’re doing 60 minutes of challenging flows with pockets of heat woven in then that’s great. Even 30 minutes of a challenging non-stop flow is great. As long as your heart rate is up, your muscles are getting tired, and you feel good, then that’s great. Otherwise, find a new yoga class or add on more exercise.

How do you make vegetables taste good if you're not used to eating most of them?

I promise you adapt. I used to hate almost every veggie that I now love. I used to have to drench salads in ranch to make them edible, and now I hardly use dressing.

My favorite ways to each veggies are cooked. I love adding them to pasta dishes and sauces cut up really small so that I don’t even notice them. I love making stir fries with lots of veggies cooked in broth and Asian sauces and rice. Cooked veggies is a good way to start because they’re easily digested and have a more subtle taste.

For raw veggies I like eating them IN things. For example, I HATE cucumber, but I love julienned cucumber when I make sushi bowls. Same goes with bell peppers.

Juicing is another good option. I HATE kale, cucumber, and celery with a passion but I love them juiced!

I hope this helps!

Is rice bad for you?


Rice is amaZeballs. It might not be the most nutrient-dense grain you can eat, but it’s food and food is energy and delicious. It’s great for basing lots of yummy veggies while filling you up more than just a salad or veggie stir fry would.

I love love love rice.

My anniversary gift from Marcus: a new design of #lululemon leggings that sold out so fast online that I didn’t even get a chance to jump on ‘em.

hey! So I'm a vegetarian and I've been struggling with eating healthy. I'm going back to school soon and I was wondering if it wouldn't be too much trouble to ask you to make a post of like 10 different healthy vegetarian dishes.. Nothing too fancy (you can literally just write like "strawberry spinach salad") and you don't have to attach recipes or anything!! Just for some ideas... Thank you so much :) this is an enormous help!


This is all I can think of at the moment haha. Try here:

Hey Kaylie! I'm a newbie to weights and I've read what you've said about how to pick the right amount of weight, but are you talking free weights or machines or dead lifts or what? I've literally never lifted weights before haha so any info would be great :)

That goes for all weights! Start with weights you can lift with proper form, not the heaviest thing you can pick up.
