As of today, I’m officially 7 months postpartum- and wow did it fly by!
If you’ve been watching Catchin’ Up with Chris and have been following me on Instagram– you know that I’ve been consciously working on eating better and being more active to start shedding that baby weight and get to a place where I feel more comfortable in my body. When I was 4 months postpartum, I wrote about how I’ve been learning to love my body at every stage instead of waiting to love it once I get to the ‘finish line.’ While I’m still trying my best every day to do so by consistently working out, eating healthy is a big part of my life and something I genuinely enjoy doing so I’m excited to get back into a routine!
To help kick start my routine and really start out on a good foot, I’m so excited to have teamed up with Sakara Life! They offer 100% plant-based, gluten-free and organic meal plans, snacks and supplements right to your door. It’s kind of like getting a personal chef and a nutritionist all wrapped up in some super chic packaging. One of the initial factors that turned me onto Sakara Life is that its woman-made! The two founders both used diet and nutrition to overcome personal health struggles and were able to use food as medicine and wanted to share the tools they learned with as many people as they can.
To get my body and healthy lifestyle back on track (you don’t even want to know how many tacos I consumed while pregnant), I completed the 10-Day Reset Program, which included everything I needed to give my body a clean slate and the jumpstart it really needed! Basically, the 10-Day Reset comes with everything you need to boost your energy, clear your gut and clear your skin.
The 10-Day Reset program comes with a booklet of amazing recipes and an easy to follow meal plan with amazing easy-to-make (AND YUMMY) recipes to mix and match over the 10 Day period. It totally changed the way that I look at food. I was so impressed at how easily the re-set guide broke everything down. One thing – if you want to make the pulled butternut squash tacos and the life source muffins like I did, make sure you have a food processor at home.
+ Beauty Water Concentrate:
It’s a silica + rose concentrate with 72 trace minerals for hydration, remineralization and glow. I liked taking this at night before bedtime to enhance my nighttime skincare routine.
+ Detox Water Concentrate:
I’ve been on the chlorophyll water train for a while now so I loved that this particular concentrate contains chlorophyll, magnesium, and 2 trace minerals for hydration, remineralization, and detoxification. For both the Beauty Water and the Detox Water concentrate, I mixed 5-6 full droppers into 8oz of water.
+ Daily Probiotic Blend:
This probiotic has 3 billion CFUs, 11 probiotic strains, digestive enzymes, prebiotics, and candida cleanser. I took two capsules of this supplement on an empty stomach when I woke up with plenty of water and could really feel the difference in my body throughout the day.
+ Detox Bars:
These bars have 10g plant protein plus blue spirulina for detoxing on the go. Don’t be afraid of their color – they’re actually so delicious and were really filling!
+ Energy Bars:
The energy bars have 10g plant protein, L-theanine, and vitamin B12 for energy on the go. Both the bars were great to have on hand in my purse or even at my desk to snack on through the day. I especially enjoyed them post-workout!
+ Life Source:
12g plant protein, alkalizing greens, phytoceramides, enzymes for digestion, detox, energy and beautiful skin. This supplement powder was amazing in smoothies and the Life Source Muffins and Chia Pudding!
+ Detox Tea:
You guys know how much I love my tea! This one has red rooibos, lemongrass, and rose for de-bloating and digestion. It’s recommended to drink twice a day, after breakfast and after lunch.
