[There’s something so satisfying about slow motion] 😍 . Over the last month or so Deana and I have really changed up our diet, switching to more plant-based recipes (with a little bit of meat here and there). 🍌🍎🍇🥑🥦🥥🍋 . Things we’ve been exluding 🚫from our recipes/meals include:🛒. - Wheat and gluten 🌾 . - Corn (Sorry Nebraska/Iowa) 🌽 . - Soy (again, sorry midwest 😐) . - Eggs 🥚 . - Canola Oil . - Pork 🐖 . - Farmed Fish 🐟 . - Sugar (from a variety of sources) - Processed beet sugar - Artificial sugars 🤢 . - Natural flavors. - MSG 😓 . - Food Dyes. - Anything we can’t pronounce or know what they are 🤔 So what’s left, am I right? 🤷🏻‍♂️ . Whole, natural, plant-based foods. And I can tell you that it is making a big difference in our lives already. 🌱 More to come on that later. 💯 . As a part of this change we have been making a lot of smoothies, mostly in the morning but also at night. ✅ These are either fruit smoothies, greens, or a combo of each. 🍌 🥬 🥗 . My go-to in the morning and even at night has been a banana/blueberry smoothie with coconut milk. It is delicious 😋 I decided to change it up tonight. Here is what is in this one: ❤️ . - Banana (frozen) - Blueberry (frozen) - Coconut water (no added sugar) - Coconut milk (canned, unsweetened) - Goji berries - Cacao nibs - Chia seeds - MCT oil - Omega 3 - Aloe (fresh, cut in squares) . Delicious, healthy, and healing! 🤤 Comment “Smoothie” below if you love a good smoothie! 🥤

[Kick It To The Curb] 🦵 Who here has experienced plantar fascial pain? 🦶 . It is definitely no fun and can limit you from doing the things you love! 😖 . I often hear of many different home remedies to treat this pain and often times they are not very effective. 😔 . To get rid of this pain for good its going to take a broad approach of stretching, strengthening, improving ROM, weight loss (for some people), orthotics (in the short term) and maybe night splints in severe cases that don’t seem to get better. 🙌 . If you have struggled with this in the past or are currently dealing with this pain, comment “ME’ below — then give these things a try! 👌

[Most people aren’t doing this. But you’re not most people] 😉 A lot of people want a quick fix to their problems. And that’s understandable. We are all busy! Life doesn’t just stop because we have some aches and pains. 🛑 And while most people put some icy hot on their elbow or take some ibuprofen, these things aren’t addressing the underlying issue. ⚠️ But YOU know better! You understand that to get rid of this pain once and for all you have to attack the source.‼️ For tennis elbow, this means that your are not only going to stretch and strengthen the muscles of the forearm, but to truly address it once and for all, we really need to look at the shoulder and mid-back muscles.🤔 . I know this might not seem intuitive, at least at first glance. But it is all connected. And if the muscles surrounding your shoulder and shoulder blades are weak, then the muscles in your forearm are going to have to work overtime.💪🏻 . I’ll do another video shortly addressing this a little more. 👏 . Until then, try out these exercises to get you started. 🕺🏻 . And if you have any further questions, let me know!🤳🏻 . Comment “Gimme” below if you want me to give you more info on this topic! ❤️

[Remember A Time When…] 🤔 You could sit in any position for as long as you wanted and get up with no issues? ⏰ My four year old can sit in the most uncomfortable positions while watching a movie and it doesn’t phase him. 👶 But you aren’t a four year old! 🤷🏻‍♂️ . We are MADE TO MOVE! Our best posture is our next posture. We are not made to sit in one position for an extended period of time. Movement is medicine / motion is lotion. Of course sitting in one spot for hours on end is going to hurt. And doing that day after day, year after year is going to take a toll on your body.🏃🏼‍♀️🏋🏻‍♂️ . So don’t be that person! While I don’t expect anyone to maintain perfect posture all day (we aren’t robots either), you can set a remind for every 30-60min so that you can get up, stretch, and readjust. 🧘‍♀️ . Keeping that poor posture all day while sitting at your computer can lead to neck pain (I’ll do another post on this) and can lead to shoulder pain as I discuss in this video.‼️ . Try out the simple techniques suggested in the video and see how much better you feel. ❤️ ✅And remember, the same idea applies when you are sitting at home watching a movie, eating dinner, driving in your car, sleeping, etc Comment “MORE” below if this was helpful and you would like more videos like this!💯💯 . And as always, if you’ve, got questions, I’ve got answers. Let me know! 👍🤘
