Besides clothes, style, and lifestyle questions, I get many messages asking about workouts, wellness, and diet. My “diet” is pretty simple… I don’t believe in them! 

I believe living an overall healthy lifestyle while indulging every once in a while is the healthiest route for me. Today, I’m going to show you what a typical day looks like with a schedule. Of course, every day is different. But if I had to give you an average day, this would be it! 

Upon waking, (and before I talk to anyone) I reach for a cup of coffee. I do keep an eye out on how much coffee I have a day because too much can tax the adrenals and cause the jitters. I add local honey, which is great for seasonal allergies! In addition, I'll add almond milk and Ceylon cinnamon for some spice! 

If you want to take it up a notch, try adding adaptogens! Adaptogens are awesome for boosting cognitive function, supporting a healthy stress response, and hormonal balance! You can find my favorite on the market here.

Around 11 A.M. I’ll have some organic bone broth. Bone broth is miraculous for your gut. It also contains abundant collagen levels for youthful joints, skin, nail, and hair health. I love this brand, but there are many great options on the market. You can even buy it in powdered form if that’s more convenient for you.

Once lunchtime rolls around, I always go for something with adequate amounts of protein to keep me full for a busy day ahead. Typically, I’ll go for a protein shake made with Bone Broth Protein, almond butter, almond milk, and a fruit of choice (I love wild blueberries)

 If I’m not feeling a protein shake, I’ll cook up some wild-caught salmon and add some avocado on the side with some walnuts 

Snacks include Siete chips or raw veggies with hummus

For dinner, I stick to protein, fiber, and greens 80 percent of the time. My favorites include grass-fed beef, organic ground turkey, steamed veggies like brocolli, brussel sprouts, and kale. Sometimes I'll include sweet potato, too! 

For dessert, I go for Medjool dates stuffed with almond butter and dark chocolate chips (I prefer this brand as there is no added sugar!) 

Try making anything mentioned above and share it with me on Instagram @nellamoon! I can’t wait to see!
