Happy June! For our June #clemandthymemonthlychall Happy June! For our June #clemandthymemonthlychallenge we’re challenging you to include healthy fats at every meal 🥑 . . Fats are important to our health in so many ways ... reducing inflammation, supporting immune health, cardiovascular health, hormonal health, nervous system/brain health, blood sugar control, and much much more! Plus, fats make our meals more satisfying and help stave off cravings 👍 . . Here are sources that count toward your healthy fats we want you to include (in any amount) at every meal: - nuts (Brazil, almond, cashew, pecan, macadamia, etc.) - seeds (chia, hemp, flax, pumpkin, sunflower, etc.) - nut and seed butters 👆 - avocados - olives - coconut - fatty fish (salmon, tuna, trout, herring, anchovies, sardines, etc.) - minimally processed oils (extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, virgin coconut oil, etc.) - grass-fed ghee and butter - grass-fed meat and poultry (beef, chicken, turkey, pork, etc.) - grass-fed dairy products (full-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, etc.) - grass-fed eggs . . Fats not included: - Fats from highly processed foods - Highly processed/refined oils and margarine - Deep fried foods - Trans fat - Fats derived from animals products that are not grass-fed . . It is also important to get a wide variety of fats because each source offers it's own unique type of fats and other beneficial nutrients and compounds ❤️ So, make sure you get a variety of fats from the list of healthy fats! We'll be posting how we include healthy fats throughout the month to help give you ideas. Let us know what questions you have and be sure to use your tracking worksheet to help track your progress! . . Want to participate? (1) Download and print out your goal tracking worksheet from the website www.clemandthyme.com/monthly-challenge (link in bio) and indicate that you have completed the goal by placing a mark or coloring in the box for each goal each day. (2) Follow the hashtag #clemandthymemonthlychallenge  and use it each time you post something related to the challenge! 📷 Let us know if you have questions. . . #yellowsprings #daytonohio #challenge #healthyhabits #healthychallenge #nutritionchallenge #healthyfats #fullfat
It’s normal to have a sweet tooth. It’s okay t It’s normal to have a sweet tooth. It’s okay to honor your cravings. What can become unhealthy, is negative self-talk or guilt after eating these foods.

We loved focusing on self care in April so much th We loved focusing on self care in April so much that we will be continuing the same focus for May's #clemandthymemonthlychallenge! 🌷 In May, we will continue to give special attention to the needs of this challenging time in which each of us is facing new responsibilities and new challenges. We hope to support your health and well-being by challenging you to meet some self-care goals each day this month 💪 . . Want to participate? (1) Download and print out your goal tracking worksheet from the website www.clemandthyme.com/monthly-challenge (link in bio) and indicate that you have completed the goal by placing a mark or coloring in the box for each goal each day. (2) Follow the hashtag #clemandthymemonthlychallenge and use it each time you post something related to the challenge! 📷 Let us know if you have questions. . . In May, we're asking you to get fresh air daily, movement/exercise daily, produce daily, meet your own water goal daily, and practice some kind of relaxation/mindfulness daily (meditation, deep breathing, reading, listen to a podcast, yoga, or whatever makes you feel relaxed which is maybe doing nothing at all for a few minutes!) . . You will notice again that the goals outlined in May’s tracking worksheet are a bit vague; however, we did this on purpose. We want you to meet these goals in any way and in any amount that you are able. The way you meet each goal can be the same every day or it can change throughout the month. We have left extra space in the goal fields if you would like to write in a more specific goal for yourself, but no pressure. Indicate that you have completed the goal by placing a mark or coloring in the box for each goal each day. . . 👩‍🎨 We have also included a “creative” tracking worksheet option which includes icons that can be colored in (with colored markers, crayons, pens, pencils, etc.) as you meet your goals for those of you who may enjoy a more involved, mindful method of tracking as you meet the goals of the challenge. . . Comment with someone you know who needs this 👇 This challenge community is free to everyone. . . We'll get through this #together 🙂 . . #daytonohio #yellowsprings #challenge #selfcare

🌷S𝕡𝕣𝕚𝕟𝕘𝕥𝕚𝕞𝕖 S𝕞𝕠𝕠𝕥𝕙𝕚𝕖 B𝕠𝕨𝕝 🌷 Recipe: 🌱1/4 cup frozen mixed berries 🌱1 handful spinach & kale blend 🌱1/4 avocado 🌱1/4 cup red beets 🌱1 spoonful of nut butter 🌱1 scoop protein powder or collagen (I used a combination of Sunwarrior plant-based chocolate protein powder and Ancient Nutrition collagen) 🌱1 cup almond milk Blend until smooth and add your toppings! I used unsweetened shredded coconut, golden flax seed, chia seed, and peanut butter. Smoothies are an excellent way to incorporate several servings of fruits and vegetables for any meal or snack. They are rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients to help support our immune system. The star of this smoothie is the beet that gives it the vibrant pink color. Beets are delicious, earthy root vegetables that are in season year round. Try preparing them roasted or boiled topped with goat cheese, balsamic vinegar, walnuts, and fresh herbs. They are the perfect addition to a fresh salad, spiralized noodles in place of pasta, or in a smoothie! Get creative and share your smoothie creations or favorite beet recipe using #clemandthymemonthlychallenge!💗Taylor #foodisfuel #nourish #nutrition
