Food for Thought: Don’t Dream, Realize!

Stop smelling and starting tasting.

Success in all aspects of your life smell good, but taste even better. So my advice is to stop dreaming and start realizing your potential, your goals, your success. Get in tune with yourself so you can realize your purpose and all the amazing things that will unfold in your life.

For 10 years, I’ve had business that achieve some level of success and lots of failures. The most valuable things I’ve learned thus far are from trial and error. I am now at the point where I created a business J.U.N.K.; unintentional, and it’s already proved to be a success almost immediately. This is all due to me taking time to go on a personal journey to unfold my true purpose. 

We’re nearing the last 6 months of 2019. How are you going to make an impact on your life?

Food for Thought

I wish I could give y’all more this week, but I want you all to know that grateful living is the way to a life full of joy and success. Happiness is temporary. Lasting happiness is joy and the way to achieving that is grateful living. What is grateful living? Being grateful even in the worse of circumstances.

So evaluate your life and what’s important and start living gratefully.

Inside the Hustle: Unknown Opportunities


I am out here hustlin’, literally. So things have really been evolving for me since I got back to NC. Not only did I start my meal prepping business (which I’ll talk about another time), but I had the opportunity to shoot a campaign for the Just In Case On the Go Bag!

I had so much fun and of course the perks of modeling and representing a company are the best. All this came about because I stay authentic to who I am and my energy attracts the necessary people in my life. Not to mention, my great sense of style; wink wink.

The take away from this is, to be who you are and treat people with kindness. Be authentic and never switch it up to blend in. Stand out and the opportunities will come.

Stay HUSTLIN’,

Foodie Friday: Raw Cashew Energy Bites!

These bites are EVERYTHING!!!!! So, I have really been cooking up some recipes every single week. Not only am I doing plant-based meal prepping for multiple customers, but I am experimenting in the kitchen with some delicious recipes. To my surprise, my raw cashew energy bits have become a HIT!!! Why I am surprised? Well the most closed minded people actually love them, which is a shock.

Anywho, these bites are packed with energy and deliciousness. It’s super quick and easy to make and has great benefits.

Some of the benefit of the bites:

The dates help the maintain weight, alternative sweetener, and energy booster.

Chia seeds help boost energy and stamina, aid in weight loss, cleanse the colon, reduce inflammation, and strengthen the immune system.
What You Need:

Raw un-roasted, unsalted cashews

4-5 dates

3/4 cup if shredded coconut (unsweetened if possible, but not a deal breaker)

A little less than 1/4 coconut sugar

Pinch of sea salt (to enhance the flavor)

Chia Seeds

What You Do:

In a food processor, put all the ingredients and blend until it creates a dough.

Once you have a dough scoop some of the mixture in your hand and sprinkle a few chia seeds and roll until you get a ball.

Continue doing this until you’ve used all the dough.

Dress with extra shredded coconut or leave bare. Enjoy now or put in the refrigerator to enjoy later.

It’s the perfect snack that keeps you happy and full! Enjoy alone or with a cup of coffee (minus all the creamer and sugar).

Until then, STAY HUSTLIN’!!! Oh and catch me on IG LIVE (@mylifebeingelle and @junkfoodbyelle) every Sunday 9pmEST/6pmPST where I cook and share recipes, and talk about different topics pertaining to living a healthier lifestyle through food, exercise, and self-care.

Foodie Friday: Living in My Purpose

I must say… this journey I’ve been on has opened my eyes to many things from the way people treat you, to the way you treat people. The lack of respect people have. The energy people bring. The ambition and priorities of people and the lack thereof.

This journey has taught me to be patient and kind. To not be reactive and instead be quiet and distant. To value and prioritize myself among all. If those around you don’t value who you are slowly move into the direction where you are valued.

This journey has taught me peace instead of anger, happy instead of sad, and living life because it’s the only one you get.

Through this journey, I am more sure of myself than I’ve ever been and GOD has placed me in position that has tested my strength and yet I have prevailed. The universe has been on my side and I’ve been able to unfold many great opportunities…

…to think, it all started with the mindset to change my life, which started with what I was eating.

… blessed…

Meet Elle — Eat J.U.N.K. Food

Hey guys, Elle here! I am so excited to meet you all and tell you a little about myself and my company J.U.N.K. Just Utilizing Nature’s Krops LLC. The mission of J.U.N.K. is to promote wellness through plant-based eating, exercise, and self-care. J.U.N.K. was through my wellness journey. In 2017 and into 2018 I was going through a really rough time. I was in a depressive state of mind, I gained weight, my relationship was suffering, and I was forced to close my business. I knew I need a change because I stopped giving care to myself and I lost my HAPPY. One morning, I woke up and said “FUCK THIS… GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!!!” (excuse my language, but that is tough love to myself). That day, I went cold turkey plant-based. through eating I began gaining the strength I needed to get out of my phase of depression. After my first month of eating plant-based, I began incorporating exercise, and my own daily self-care routines. In no time, I not only lost over 30 pounds, but I was happier than I had ever been, and I gained the mental clarity I needed to continue on my wellness journey which ultimately led me to creating J.U.N.K. By creating J.U.N.K. I was able to share my journey with a wide range of people outside of the ones that saw my transformation in real-time.

In August of 2018, I published J.U.N.K. Food 101: Beginner’s Guide to Plant-Based Eating, a guide for novices and those exploring the plant-based lifestyle. The book made Amazon’s New Release List, a huge accomplishment for me and unexpected. The greatest feeling is when your story can reach others and change lives. Today, I am preparing to release the follow up cookbook, Ea
t J.U.N.K. filled with easy-to-make delicious plant-based meals, exercise and self-care tips. All the things that have helped me and continue to help me on my wellness journey.

I am beyond excited to share my journey with the Female, Single, and Hustlin’ family. If you want to keep up with me, or all things J.U.N.K., follow me on Instagram @mylifebeingelle and visit www.eatjunkfood.co to keep up with my book release and upcoming events.
