What causes adrenal fatigue? Top 3 culprits keeping you from living life!

What causes adrenal fatigue? Top 3 culprits keeping you from living life!

I hear so often from friends, clients and just people on the street that they're dealing with adrenal fatigue, and trying to figure out what causes it.

Adrenal fatigue is a horrible condition to live with because it drains your energy and makes life a struggle - rather than a special occasion.

It's an issue that's become so widespread, and when you look at what causes adrenal fatigue it's not actually that surprising - because the top 3 culprits are so common!

And easy solution - next time you're grocery shopping, pick up these five foods. I eat them pretty much every single day to boost my energy and immune system, and keep my hair, skin and nails healthy.


Almonds: What Makes Them Healthy + How To Eat Them

Almond <3 - super nutritious, and ideas on how to eat them - including DIY chocolate!

Easter weekend means chocolate and bunnies! Around my house, we also used to find Ribena left by Easter bunny... not sure why, but I'm having blackcurrant tea in honor of that tradition!

I'll also be having some dark chocolate, which is a lovely treat, or if you want to go fully homemade try my chocolate bark with just 3 ingredients!

I had a quick snack of some almonds, which would make a lovely Easter treat and are also super healthy! Check out their stats:

One Pot Meal Ideas

One pot meals: less dishes, limit overeating, simplify meals

A lot of my meals are made in one pot, for many reasons. The most obvious is that it keeps dishes at a minimum, since it only uses one pot.

Having one dish means that your tastebuds are satisfied with less food than if you have lots of different flavors on your plate. Think of Thanksgiving dinner, and tons of side dishes, and how you need to eat just enough of each one to feel satisfied - even though you're overstuffed.

One pot meals keep things simple in terms of time spent making a meal, and also in terms keeping your evening meal a bit lighter for easier digestion before bed.


Everything You Want To Know About Pressure Cooking! Live Q&A with JL Fields

Everything You Want To Know About Pressure Cooking! Live video Q&A with JL Fields

I am SO excited to finally be hosting a live q&a with JL Fields!

See, I bought a pressure cooker a few months ago because I was sick of buying canned beans, but I didn't want to use up a couple hours worth of gas or electricity cooking them on the stove.

Unfortunately, I had a few mishaps in trying it out and lost motivation. I know that JL is a pro with her pressure cooker (literally, she just published a book called Vegan Pressure Cooking) so I wanted to ask her for some tips.
