Does this describe your current job? If not maybe it’s time to change that. I know that’s what I’m working towards💕 
Because let’s be honest. Life is short. Too short to be stuck in a job that you hate. That doesn’t make your soul happy. That doesn’t fill you with joy. 
It’s never too late to start creating the life that you want. The life that you deserve. The life you were meant to live. .

I know the last few days have been all about @beautycounter around here but I realized today that I still haven’t finished sharing the top 10 recipes from 2018 with you yet! I know right? Clearly you guys were into chocolate last year because another top choice were the Paleo Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies that I shared over on @40aprons 🍪This recipe is made grain free by using @anthonysgoods almond flour and @bobsredmill tapioca starch. And it’s made dairy free by using @enjoylifefoods chocolate chips. You’ll find the recipe through the link in my profile. Enjoy! .

Sun in the sky, braid in my hair, ocean on my feet and nothing on the to-do list. It doesn’t happen often but when it does it’s oh so special. Words cannot express how amazing this trip has been💕
Thank you @beautycounter for spoiling us like I would have never imagined.
And for those wondering the dress is @anthropologie .

If you need me I’ll be by the sea...
Honestly though this trip has been incredible so far. It’s hard for me to put into words just how amazing this experience has been. Getting to meet so many other incredible, hard working, goal driven, health conscious women all in the same place just does something for your soul. I had never been on an incentive trip with @beautycounter before and now that I’ve been I know that I never want to miss another one. The sense of community and empowerment here is so much more than I would have expected. I know it sounds totally cliche but I’m so grateful that is opportunity came into my life. Thank you @kateshealthycupboard and @rubiesandradishes for all your memtorship and thank you @makanani_mama for saying “yes” to a total stranger and getting here with me! I honestly can’t wait to see what 2019 brings💕

You guys were clearly loving chocolate in 2018! Another of the top ten in 2018 was my Chocolate Avocado Torte. This cake is just so darn delicious! And it doesn’t take like avocados I promise. You’ll also be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to make. Loaded with healthy fats and full of chocolatey goodness I promise you’re going to love it. Grab the recipe through the link in my profile🥑🍫🍰

Today was a tough one. Unlike this photo it was definitely not all flowers and sunshine. So many patients were calling in flaring, my secretary was away so things that needed to be organized urgently couldn’t be, I didn’t get to eat lunch and worked from 6am till 5pm straight with no breaks. Then I came home and spent all evening preparing my grand rounds presentation for tomorrow. But you know what? It’s ok. It’s all worth it. Because in 2 days I leave for an amazing trip to Florida with @beautycounter and I can’t wait!!! I get to spend 4 days at an amazing resort surrounded by other incredible women who inspire me every single day. I can’t wait to give the biggest hugs to some of the girls on my team (@kateshealthycupboard, @rubiesandradishes, @makanani_mama you have been warned) as well one woman who made this all possible and is such a force of nature (@greggrenfrew I hope you don’t mind hugs from strangers). So yes, today was rough but my heart is so full it doesn’t even matter💕

Another of the top 10 recipes from 2018 was my Chocolate Avocado Mousse! And no, before you ask, it doesn’t taste like avocados. Promise! Just pure chocolatey goodness. It’s made with just 5 ingredients: 
Avocados 
Coconut milk (@natural.value is my favorite) 
Cacao powder 
Honey or maple syrup 
Vanilla extract
Just throw the ingredients into you @vitamix and you’re done! So, so simple. Grab the full recipe from the link in my profile. Enjoy! .

As you are sitting down and writing out your goals for 2019 I want you to make sure that taking care of yourself is on that list. Are you committed to eating well, moving often, getting enough sleep and making time for your mental health? If not, add those things to the list of your goals for this year. Because if you aren’t taking care of yourself, how are you going to be able to accomplish all those other goals? Remember, self care is not selfish, it’s necessary💕

If you’re interested in learning more message me for details! Also, every purchase that you make this month helps me earn points to win a trip to Ottawa to speak with our government to try and advocate for better laws for the skincare and beauty industries. I want to win this trip so, so badly!!! Advocating for change in this industry is something I am so passionate about. I’m so grateful for you support and I thank you so much in advance for any order you place with me this month💕

It wasn’t just desserts you guys were loving in 2018. This recipe for my Peach Ginger Fizz was also a reader favorite last year. Made with only 4 ingredients these come together in just seconds. They’re also great for your gut health as they’re made with my favorite @gtskombucha ginger kombucha. 
Here are the ingredients: 
4 ripe peaches 
2 cups ginger @gtskombucha 
1 tbsp organic vanilla extract 
1/4-1/2 tsp ginger powder 
Simply throw the ingredients into your @vitamix and blend well. Then serve and enjoy! Simple as that! These are also @whole30 compliant! 
A few of you have also asked about these glasses. They’re from @anthropologie .

Another one of the most popular recipes of 2018!!! My Chocolate Raspberry Cups. These are one of my favorite treats. They are also so, so easy to make! They’ve got @nutiva coconut oil and coconut manna so they are packed with healthy fats and they also contain raw honey which is one of my favorite superfoods. These would also be perfect for Valentines Day💕
If you make them be sure to tag me! The recipe link is in my profile. .
