Hey ladies, Elle here! I’m back for #foodiefriday, and I want to share a few tips on how we as female hustlers can keep it healthy. Too often we are on the grind so much that we disregard the harm we may be doing to our bodies. I have been guilty of this more times than once, but I quickly took notice and began making changes.

Hey ladies, Elle here! I’m back today for #foodiefriday, and I want to share a few tips on how we as female hustlers can keep it healthy. Too often we are on the grind so much that we disregard the harm we may be doing to our bodies. I have been guilty of this more times than once, but I quickly took notice and began making changes.

So here are some tips to keep it healthy while hustlin’

Get Sleep and Rest

Throw the “team no sleep” mentality out the window because if you don’t sleep how can you be at your best to conquer your days. We work our 9-5 then work on our own business, so sleep and rest is extremely important. Think about the time you are missing when you have to catch up on sleep.

Find Balance

You have to find balance between your personal life, work life, and entrepreneur life. It’s hard as hell, but without balance you will go crazy. I am currently in a situation where I am trying to find my balance and get back to my normal routine. I am currently up at 3am writing this post because the week has been a trying week and I have been off balance.

Meditate

Keeping your mental healthy is crucial. Find ways to keep mental clarity so you can make sound decisions. I like to meditate upon waking up to get my day started. If there is potential bull shit during the day, a quick 5-minute meditation may help you be less frustrated.

Swap Your Coffee

Swapping your coffee for other healthy alternatives is good to do once in a while. I love coffee, the taste, the smell, but too much coffee isn’t that great for me. So at times I like to swap it with matcha green tea. Matcha is packed with nutrients that help boost immunity and it aids in detoxifying the body from harsh chemicals. It also known to improve mood and increase focus, reduce stress, and relax the mind. Lastly, matcha gives you natural energy without the jitters.

Each Your Fruit and Veggies

Keeping proper nutrients in your body is the most crucial in hustlin’. Eating more fresh fruits and veggies give you energy, boost your immune system, and gives your the nutrients your body needs to function daily.

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.
