So its been a while since i posted a blog! My apologies, I have a lot going on in my life at the moment :)
Recently got married May 31st, and am now… 6 months pregnant with baby #2! On top of all that our business TruSelf Organics has been keeping us very busy!
Today on my Instagram page I posted a picture of a delicious breakfast I cooked for baby love and I. Here is what Ive been cooking for our main breakfast meals lately…
Cream of Buckwheats with chia seeds, fresh organic pina y frescos :) Cream of Buckwheat is both gluten free and wheat free (yes i know, disregard the "wheat" in the name, its confusing) but it is pretty easy stuff to digest and with this baby getting bigger by the hour, Im starting to run out of room in there for food AND a baby!
Its also a PERFECT starter food for your young baby who is now ready for solids…please don't buy that gerber crap. Its GENETICALLY MODIFIED and just full of filler ingredients that are hard for your little ones tummy to breakdown and digest.
Pretty breakfast :)
Ditched the flowers and added some raw almonds…before i devoured it i thought i should take another pic. Pictured are the ONLY vitamins I take.
So before I let the day go by any longer, I thought Id share with you what it was exactly that I posted earlier :)
Here is the recipe:
2.5 Cups organic cream of buckwheats
.5 cups purified water (or milk/cream..please use RAW!!)
handful of chopped strawberries and pineapple
sprinkle of chia seeds
crushed raw almonds
topped with local fresh butter
local raw honey
1. Boil water
2. add in wheats and turn burner to low
3. add in fruit and chia seeds
4. stand there and stir…and stir…and stir until its thick (abt 10min)
5. serve in bowl, top with butter, honey and almonds
Do it up however you want! This recipe is really easy and…i just had a MARVELOUS thought… adding in raw cacao powder maybe even fresh raspberries. Totes doing that tomorrow! mmm…now I'm hungry again. Story of my life!
So there you have it! A simple recipe any one can make. Even if you have NO cooking skills at all. Just don't burn the heck out of it cause it makes a big ass mess to clean ;)

Have a wonderful day you BEAUTIFUL people.
Yes, you really are beautiful….dont forget that shit either.
Love and Light,
In todays society where it is easier and more convenient to get processed food than nutrient dense super foods, one has to take personal responsibility for their actions. And by actions I am talking about what you eat, what foods you buy, and how you take care of yourself and your family.
I posted today a 15 second instagram video of baby love and her morning ritual, making smoothies! I had several of my followers (which are amazing btw) ask for the recipe to the smoothie we made together!
WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU EAT LIVER?! ITS SO GROSS!
Yes liver, to me anyways is unpalatable but I knew it was so important to have this "superfood" in not only my diet but baby loves diet as well, I did my research and eventually came across Liver Pills. THANK GOODNESS I FOUND THEM!
Did you know?
TruSelf Organics detoxifying facial mask in conjunction with a plentiful reserve of naturally derived vitamin B12 is the best way to combat ANY form of acne.
The benefits of including this superfood in your diet are endless. The main reason we take this supplement is because it provides our bodies with the essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fats that are essential to healthy brain function and development.
The specific fatty acids that are needed in order for humans to maintain healthy brain function and growth are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docasahexaenoic acid), and AA (arachidonic acid) and Vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 is so essential to the human body.
If you are B12 deficient you might be experiencing a whirlwind of health issues ranging from behavioral issues (ADD/ADHD), panic attacks, anxiety, depression, numbness or tingling in limbs, and loss of memory just to name a few...
In order to have a reserve of this essential vitamin in your body you must get it straight from the source. This means NOT SUPPLEMENTING YOUR B12 WITH SYNTHETIC, LABORATORY MADE B12.
You can find vitamin B12 in:
To recap on why including Liver is essential in your diet I have taken the following information from google.
Lots of Love and Blessings,

Part of what Nutritionists teach is true.
Part of what Doctors teach is true.
Part of what Personal Trainers teach is true.
What I believe is...no way is the "standard" way.
I take bits and pieces of credible information to create a total lifestyle plan for myself.
I believe in awareness of the mind, body and soul. When you have awareness you possess perception and perception alone will resolve all your problems.
I do possess a Bachelors degree of science but I am not a certified nutritionist, trainer or doctor.
I practice what I preach and my personal results have been so life altering that I feel it is necessary to share it with the world. You cannot argue with results and the results I have seen in my own personal life have been so beneficial to my overall health, physical and mental well-being I want to share my knowledge with all who want to take the time to listen/read what I have to say...and to those of you who follow me, THANK YOU! I do this all for you guys. To try and make this world healthier and happier one person at a time.
Sure you may take some of my advice to your doctor and have your doctor say that "I am crazy. I don’t know what I'm talking about." But then do this for me....ask your Dr. to pull up his/her shirt. Most doctors are more unhealthy than you, yourself! You have to take things with a grain of salt.....Drs are important in my opinion when emergency medical intervention is necessary, otherwise, our bodies were perfectly designed and created to fix themselves! That’s why we have an immune system, that’s why we have these amazing brains and hearts. They work. Let them do their job.
My fiancé and I conduct our own personal research as well as we seek out the information we are looking for through credible sources such as:
• Weston A Price Foundation
• Dr. Mercola
• Paul Chek
• Sean Croxton (JERF)
Every single person is different. We all possess different physiological chemistries. That is why I tell everyone whether it be via YouTube, Instagram or email, to tailor these workouts and "suggestions" of how to eat and live to ones own needs.
What works for me, might not work for you.
I do not follow a set standard or practice, that is why I have not pursued an education in nutritional health, physical health ect... I do not believe in one particular practice. I believe in using all the resources I have to make the best choice possible.
I want people to learn how to listen to their bodies so you can give your body what it needs!
Most importantly I want people to learn how to LOVE THEMSELVES.....that is truly my mission and goal. To teach and preach self love.

My favorite cup of coffee does not require much! I do not add any artificial sweeteners to it, not even sugar. All I do is brew my local organic dark roasted coffee in my all natural bleach free filter, add some organic whipping cream to my cup and then add in some organic vanilla for that "extra" flavor. Its delicious!! So happy I got a little extra freaky with my coffee this morning. Its my new favorite way to drink my morning cup of joe :)
PS...you can add a little honey to sweeten it if you wish, just NO white sugar.
