She Supports: Elle & J.U.N.K. Food

Once again, I want to shout out my dearest Elle for hard work in sharing her journey in creating a healthier lifestyle through plant based consumption. In her 2nd published book, her first about plant based eating, Elle talks about the importance of eating and why eating raw, clean and unprocessed foods is more than a diet, but rather a pledge to one’s overall well-being.

In this easy read, my girl Elle, explains the pros to eating more foods directly from the earth. We all remember the four groups. In Elle’s J.U.N.K. 101, she dispels that myth. With supporting evidence. And her next book which will be released later this year provide readers the recipe to share the journey with her.

I’m not plant based myself (yet), but I have many of her dishes and I can vouch that what she prepares is delish and worth making the switch over the eating more plants.

So… go ahead and Google her book. You’ll find it on Amazon. If you’re unsure, I included a picture of it right above. Let’s show Elle some love.

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: Take Action!

Take Action

So much has been heavy on my heart heavy on my mind lately. Everyday I have worked to be a better version of myself and everyday I make strides and progress, and some days I regress then begin to progress and make strides again. Bettering yourself isn’t any easy task as it seems. You wake up and say, “Imma be a better version of myself” and that is as far as it goes; you telling yourself. In life, we have to put more ACTION into our words. More ACTION into our lives. More ACTION into the things we want out of life. Remember, the first step in anything we do is all MENTAL. 
I have been on a transformational journey for almost a year now and I went from making strides to making progress. I am nowhere near where I see myself being, but that is the beauty in the journey. You never know where it is going to take you, but you learn something new about yourself, the world, or other people in each phase. While I have mostly been in the phase of losing weight and being more consistent with adopting healthier habits when it comes to eating and physical activity, I know that over the pass year this is what is leading up to my next phase which dives more into my spiritual side. I can feel it. I can literally feel my spiritual side seeping into my body through my mind, my thoughts, my words. Everyday less of what use to matter doesn’t matter anymore. I am finding that being at peace is more important to me than money and material things. I have seen my growth over the past year and while I am proud of what I have done, I am even more anxious to evolve even more into who I am meant to be. Who is that you ask? Not even I know, but I am excited to meet her as I blown into what nature has intended for me to be. 
Here are some ways that I have been able to evolve over the past year and see growth in the way I think, act, and do, as well as how others views and treat me. 

  • I decided mentally that I needed to change, and that began with recognizing that I wasn’t living up to my full potential, and taking accountability for what I wasn’t doing for myself.
  • The above led me to mentally decided to make my health and overall wellness a priority. This is where the shift began. If you are unaware, what you consume affects every aspect of your life. Changing my eating habits alone gave me mental clarity.
  • Physical activity became another phase after I started eat better. this helped me build stamina, confidence, and the drive to continue pushing on my journey.

I can’t say that I stuck with my journey consistently, that would be false. I’ve had ups and downs, but when I realized my fuck ups and the impact it had I quickly got right back to the plan. 
So, the question I leave you with today is….

How are you going to put forth more ACTION into your life today and going forward?
