Would you wish to live a long healthier life?

Do you wish to raise the health of our world at precisely the exact same moment? Subsequently this blogpost is right for you! If you would like to go before it is your time and could not care less about the near future you will leave behind... Afterward you cannot sit . Excited to reside? I'm! Let us dive in.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines healthy diets as:

"diets high in vegetables, fruit and whole grains, with limited intake of saturated fat, trans fats, sugar and salt"

What is the connection between a healthy and a sustainable diet?

Many scientist have analyzed the ecological impacts of various diets, with most agreeing that diets full of plant-based foods and also fewer foods from animal sources may benefit both the health and the health of Earth.

Plant based diets have been "win-win" - they're both good for you and also for Earth.

Scientist call this diet a "planetary wellness diet" to demonstrate the major link between human health and ecological sustainability.

Regardless of the title, this isn't a particular diet program but instead a flexible diet which contains veggies, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and unsaturated oils; comprises a low to moderate quantity of poultry and seafood; also contains a very low amount of red meat, processed meat, additional sugars, refined grains, and starchy vegetables.

This diet is adaptable enough to operate for almost anyone regardless of their situation, heritage, and dietary preferences.

Now you know what the best part is? It will save a Great Deal of cash to follow a general diet:

Based upon Your present food budget you can easily save 1000-5000$ annually (after a standard American diet)‍ You'll be sick , lose less days on the job and spend less money on healthcare. An extra added advantage is that adhering to a planetary wellness diet will also raise the level of your daily life.

Why is a healthy and sustainable diet extremely important?

Food is just one of the greatest methods to boost human wellbeing and ecological sustainability on Earth.

Nevertheless, food is presently a threat to the people and world. Our global challenge isn't just how to feed an increasing population, but also the best way to supply a nutritious diet which may be sustained.

Globally, conventional diets (high in quality plant-based foods), have changed to a "Western-style" method of eating.

This method of eating isn't just bad, but also unsustainable. While the food manufacturing has generally kept pace with population increase. We have over 820 million people still lack food, and a lot more eat either low-fat diets or an excessive amount of food.

Unhealthy diets today pose a higher danger of folks to getting ill or dying than sexual intercourse, alcohol, tobacco and drugs usage combined. We want radical transfrmation of this international food system.

Though the entire food system -- out of farming to transportation, cooking and waste disposal - leads to those issues. Agriculture is the greatest cause of global ecological change. Changes which have climate change, biodiversity loss, deforestation, desertification, and harm to coastal reefs and marine ecosystems.

Just how much does food manufacturing affect the climate?

Our food manufacturing contributes approximately to 30 percent of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE), in which the livestock industry are responsible for nearly half (14.5percent ) of these emissions. Itoccupies roughly 40 percent of global property, in which livestock uses 30 percent of the property. Uses 70 percent of freshwater. Has resulted in nearly 60 percent of the world fish stocks to be completely fished and 33 percent overfished -- just 7 percent are underfished. Present food production is currently driving climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution, and extreme changes in water and land usage. Without actions, today's children will inherit a degraded world.

A world where a lot of the populace will suffer from malnutrition and preventable illness.

You are able to alter the way food is created by making better food options. The fantastic news isthat a international adoption of this"planetary wellness diet" would provide important health benefits. Studies reveal we can avoid roughly 1 4 premature adult deaths every year. New findings indicates that agriculture may turn from foe to friend through improved procedures.

Actually, farming may go from carbon supply to carbon sink. Our growing knowledge about the condition of the planet, represents massive business opportunities. Opportunities, were we possess the ability to support the ideal companies and improve our position. Affects exactly what, and just how much we create.

By swallowing more"sustainable diets‟ -- diets which have lower environmental effects, and are fitter. It will require a large shift in how that you consume and for the large part, what you eat is 1 thing you have control over. Thus... You may make a choice now.

Wednesday is here and we’re halfway through the week! How are you holding up? It was back to school for a lot of the older kids in our area this week but preschool doesn’t kick off for our boys until early September. (Their first day of preschool is actually the day before my due date!) Once we heard our preschool would be opening, we made the decision to send both Chase and Ryder to preschool this year. (Ryder will go two days and Chase will be in the 5-day 5-year-old program, with both of them in school from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. on the days they go.) I know figuring out what school and childcare looks like is a hard decision for everyone with little ones to navigate right now but this option feels right for us. We love our preschool SO much and with very small class sizes, extra outside time, daily health screenings, the promise of extra sanitation practices and teachers in masks, it feels like the best option.

I love this meme I’ve seen floating around the internet regarding the decision parents are making related to school right now:

For those with preschool and school-age children right now, what do your plans look like? You will get zero judgment from me and I hope that whatever you choose works well for you and your families.

As for our decision to send our boys to preschool, we have a myriad of reasons that played into our decision and they mostly centered around the fact that we love and trust our preschool and know our boys will benefit immensely from play, socialization and learning and, also, I feel like I will need help with Chase and Ryder if I hope to get any work done with a newborn baby due within the next three weeks. Our small preschool felt like one of the best and safest options for our family. It wasn’t an easy decision but I’m very excited for our boys!

So that is the latest update with our preschool plans!

Anyway, back to the “meat” of today’s post! I wanted to share another day-in-the-life blog post with you guys since I actually managed to snap a bunch of pics throughout our day yesterday. Victory!


I had another sleepless night on Monday night which is par for the course these days. I really thought pregnancy insomnia would elude me this time around but it’s back with a vengeance. On the bright side I flew through my latest book, The Last Flight, and thought it was a great one! I guess if you’re going to be up reading at 3 a.m., you might as well read a page-turner, right? I somehow managed to drift off to sleep from 4 a.m. – 5:30 a.m. and once I was up for the day, I snacked on some granola and did a little work on the computer before heading into our garage gym and joining Ryan for a quick upper body workout.

Around 6:30 a.m., we had a little visitor.

Chase was up for the day bright and early and hung out with us in the garage until I wrapped up my workout and joined him inside for breakfast.

My morning meal looked like yet another batch of mason jar chia seed pudding. This rendition included cocoa powder, cacao nibs and chopped pecans for a chocolaty delight!

Once Ryder was up for the day, the boys were content to entertain themselves for a bit which gave me the chance to finish up baby sprinkle thank you notes, throw some chicken in the slow cooker and whip up a cucumber salad to serve with dinner.

Eventually the beautiful weather was calling to us, so we made our way outside for some sidewalk chalk shenanigans and a bug walk with Sadie!

Ryder and Chase brought their creature cages, binoculars and nets along on our adventure and we wandered around our neighborhood in search of butterflies and dragonflies.

It kind of blows my mind that we’re five months into keeping most of our daily adventures close to home and the boys are still all-in on any kind of walk involving the hunt for little critters. It is, without a doubt, one of their very favorite things to do and since I’m all about getting outside as much as possible, it’s a nice option to have in our arsenal on a daily basis.

(My aviators are one of my favorite finds of the summer and part of a super affordable two-pack I found on Amazon!) 


We made our way home around lunchtime and the boys dug into sandwiches, hardboiled eggs, peaches and carrots while I ended up eating the meal I initially prepped for our dinner.

I think I mentioned this last week, but my appetite is so wonky in the evenings lately so I’m trying to take advantage of the times of day that vegetables and “real” food appeal to me before I inevitably just want fruit, yogurt or cereal for dinner.

BBQ Chicken with Cucumber SAlad

On my lunch plate: Slow cooker BBQ pulled chicken (this recipe has quickly become my go-to!) on top of spinach and arugula + cucumber salad (I loosely followed this recipe) topped with Everything Bagel seasoning from ALDI. An unpictured Hawaiian sweet roll was also consumed while I was plating everything up. My obsession with those things continues to run strong.

After lunch, I put Ryder down for his nap and left the monitor with Ryan (a major perk of having him work from home!) and Chase and I made our way to Kid-to-Kid, a local consignment shop to pick up some of the things the store buyers didn’t want from my recent haul.

Late last week, I rounded up clothes, toys and baby-related items that didn’t really work well for either of our boys and brought them to Kid-to-Kid. For anyone local who might be interested, through next week, Kid-to-Kid in Huntersville is currently operating on a by-appointment only selling schedule. They then take a few days to go through everything and when they call you back and make an offer, you must then come back and pick up anything they don’t want by 5 p.m. This was actually my first time selling to Kid-to-Kid and I was really impressed with the process and the payout! I ended up with an offer of $75 for a big bin of items and was stoked!

Since I had to be at Kid-to-Kid by 5 p.m. yesterday, Chase and I used Ryder’s nap time to pop into the shop and then made the most of our brief time away from home and walked across the street for some frozen yogurt.

It felt like such a treat to have a little mid-day date with my oldest dude and we had fun chatting in the shade outside before making our way home. On a random side note, are any of your kiddos out there obsessed with putting gummy candy on top of their ice cream? I swear it makes the candy as hard as rocks but it’s always Chase’s go-to topping whenever we go to a fro-yo place. Yeesh! I’ll stick with the the softer stuff that doesn’t fight back, thanks!

By the time we made it home, Ryder was tossing and turning in his crib. Perfect timing! After a quick change into swimsuits for our crew, we made our way to a neighbor’s house where we spent the afternoon swimming and playing outside.

I loved chatting with my friend Alise and her kids and our boys play so well together. Her middle child is also animal-obsessed and he and Chase are two peas in a pod with their interests right now.


We arrived home right around 6 p.m. and joined Ryan at the kitchen counter for dinner. True to form lately, I stuck with yogurt topped with blueberries, granola and nuts and an ice cream bar for dessert and called it a night.

With the boys fairly exhausted after several hours of afternoon swimming, Ryan and I were pretty pumped to have both of them fast asleep by 7:45 p.m. Is this why pools are so coveted by people with kids!?

After chatting with Ryan for a bit, the two of us climbed into bed and read until our eyes could no longer stay open. At the recommendation of my friend Kaitlyn, I began reading The Winemaker’s Wife by Kristin Harmel and I’ll be sure to report back on this one once I’m a bit further into the story. The author’s novels pop up along with Taylor Jenkins Reid and Elin Hilderbrand so I have high hopes for this book since I tend to enjoy novels written by those two women a lot! (Consider this your friendly reminder to read Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid if you haven’t already. Ugh it was just SO GOOD.)

Plans for today are taking us off to an outside morning play date with friends and then I have some work I really need to knock out during Ryder’s nap time/Chase’s quiet time so I’m crossing my fingers for a decent window of solo work time this afternoon. Enjoy your Wednesday, my friends, and I hope to see ya back here again soon!
