Sloppy Joe Saturday! These sloppy joes contain protein, fiber & veggies! Did you know that 1 cup of lentils has approximately 18 grams of protein? Impressive!

Happy Friday!! Such as simple dessert but so healthy and so good! Both raspberries and dark chocolate contain fiber, antioxidants and heart healthy properties. I recommend getting 65% or higher chocolate. The higher the percentage of your chocolate the more cacao bean retained and the less sugar or milk. The cacao beans are where all the nutritional benefits are! ✌🏼✨🌿#healthygrocerygirl #hggcommunity
Snap peas are a delicious and crunchy veggie that are perfect in stir fries or dipped in hummus as a snack! We love this green veggie because it contains vitamin C, A, K, B vitamins, fiber and iron! These nutrients may help boost immunity, help control cholesterol levels and support blood sugar levels! What are your favorite ways to enjoy snap peas? ✌🏼✨🌿 #healthygrocerygirl #hggcommunity #plantbased #realfood #glutenfree #hgghealthtip
🍃 Food is Fuel! 🍃 What we eat has a big impact on our energy levels throughout the day. It is important to get a balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat, as well as vitamins and minerals to properly power and nourish our bodies. A diet rich in real, whole, plant-based foods is best because plant-based foods are nutrient dense! Here are some of my go-to foods & tips to help manage & SUSTAIN energy levels!⠀
⠀
FOODS THAT ENERGIZE⠀
1. Lemon Water 🍋 Did you know a common sign of dehydration if feeling tired and on edge? Add fresh lemon juice to naturally flavor water & for vitamin C!⠀
2. Oatmeal. This whole-grain contains soluble fiber that really sticks with you and provides long lasting energy. Choose rolled or steel cut oats and top with fruit, nuts, nut butter and cinnamon. It's my go-to breakfast when I'm heading into a work meeting, before a television segment or a speaking gig. ⠀
3. Spinach which has iron to support oxygen flow in the body 🍃 I love adding spinach to my smoothies. ⠀
4. Fresh Fruit contains natural sugars as well as fiber to help sustain energy levels and feel full longer 🍓⠀
⠀
FOODS THAT DRAIN⠀
1. Foods high in Added Sugar... you'll get a spike in energy levels, then a crash⠀
2. Processed White Flour... white flour is essentially sugar once digested providing the body with the same energy spike and crash. ⠀
3. Soda & Caffeinated Drinks... caffeine definitely helps boost energy levels! However, it can also lead to a energy drop and can be dehydrating. Make sure to limit caffeine intake and stay hydrated with filtered water, herbal teas and water dense fruits and veggies! ⠀
⠀
In addition to increasing our intake of mostly real, whole foods to manage energy levels, lifestyle habits are also important. Sleep, exercise, fresh air plus stress reduction are all important for a healthy, energized lifestyle! 🙌🏼 #healthygrocerygirl #hggcommunity

Carrots are a delicious root veggie that are rich in vitamin A, biotin, vitamin K, potassium and vitamin B6. These nutrients may support eye health, heart health & your immune system! 🥕⠀

Carrots are incredible in soups, sauces, stir fries and can even be enjoyed spiralized into noodles or baked as a side of veggie fries! ✌🏼✨🌿 ⠀

Oh hello Monday! Yawn 👶🏼 Tomorrow our sweet Ella is 3 weeks! She has long legs like her daddy & her newborn jammies are already fitting a little snug! I love right before nursing how she locks eyes with me & we just look at each other for a bit as if to say “hello, here we are again!” She loves movement & is a big fan of being carried in her @ergobaby around the house or while we bounce on an exercise ball. Sleep is still random & unpredictable but we’re learning to try & sleep when she sleeps which last night meant we all were in bed at 6pm! 
My anxiety has improved a lot since day 1. The days & nights are hard but I’m determined to not let the hardship steal my joy. These moments are what I prayed for for years as we were trying to conceive. I may be exhausted & overwhelmed at times but we are blessed. I want to start journaling again before too much time has passed to write down our birth story, how we’re doing & Ella’s milestones. Journaling has always been a great way for me to process my emotions & spend time with God to get my head & heart in a healthy, positive place. I plan to share our birth story in the future, so if you have any questions for us about our natural birth experience you’d like me to answer please leave them in the comments below! 
I’m currently eating a lactation cookie & sipping on an organic iced decaf coffee with almond milk & watching our sweet Ella as she enjoys tummy time! I hope you are having a good start to your week - or if its not a good start, know you’re not alone in your struggles! ✌🏼✨👶🏼 @megan.roosevelt
