Mexican Dip (Vegan)

Personally, I like a lot of things fresh and don't like to use canned foods all too often so for this recipe you will taste the freshness! I served this to friends and no one knew it was vegan as it had all the flavor!

1st layer:
For homemade "refried" beans I cooked 2 cups pinto beans and then blended with about 1 tbsp coconut oil and a little water until it all combined and was a smooth texture.  Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a little chili powder. Put this in the bottom of your dish.

2nd layer:
The cheeeeeesssseee!
Blend together 1 cup cashews, 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, a little water, and a few tablespoons salsa.  Then spread on top of beans.

3rd layer:
You can use store bought or I just mashed up 3 avocados with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lime.

4th layer:
Spread some salsa on it.

5th layer:
Chop up a bell pepper and sprinkle on top.

6th layer:
Sprinkle some sliced olives on top.

Lastly, top it off with cilantro.

Best Day of Your Life

Self centered

We’ve been called many things.
Sorry we have a passion to grow personally and to share our journey hoping to inspire others to truly live life the happiest and healthiest we all can.

We don’t judge. We aim to educate.

There are so many different workout programs you can do and you should do what you LOVE. But the big component that people miss is the nutrition piece. That was the case for us.

We drink a nutritional shake because we at least know we are getting the base of what we need everyday.
We do the on demand workout programs because of the ease of access, quality of programs, and variety.
We eat healthy because it makes us feel energized and mentally clear.
We read books and listen to podcasts for personal development so we are constantly growing.

Because of all this, our lives have been so much happier from when we 1st met.

We want 5 women who want to join us on this journey. Ready to hear more? Ready to commit? Email me now!  Lynng258@gmail.com

Transformation Tuesday!

My injuries helped me become who I am today.

When I was recently home, I found some pictures from college.
I honestly can’t even recognize the girl in the pictures, both inside and out.

I was struggling BIG TIME with my weight.  Yeah, yeah, yeah what kid in college doesn’t. 🙄
BUT I was a D1 scholarship athlete.  I was supposed to be in peak physical and mental condition but sadly, I was FAR from it.😕

Weight issues
Multiple knee surgeries
Lack of nutrition knowledge
Mentally recovering each day…will I be just as good of a soccer player?  Can I get to where I once was?
I was so lost.

➡️It has been a LONG struggle with educating myself on nutrition, finding workout programs that work for me, and building up my confidence to LOVE myself.

Who I am today is so distant from the girl I was in college. ❤️
It wasn’t easy. It took time. It took patience.  It took A LOT of up’s and down’s.
But it was 100% worth it!👍👍

💥I am looking to help 5 people make that change to want to live healthier.  
Start NOW before 2018 is here.
💥Message for details.
