It’s HERE!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻I know you’ve seen my posts about seed cycling and the importance of taking control of your cycle! There is a specific combination of seeds that we take daily to benefit our female bodies throughout the month.
I’m so excited to find this amazing Woman Owned Business Funkit Wellness After grinding my own seeds for months I started looking into companies that could do it for me! Funk It Wellness seeds are all Organic, packaged together for an easy daily grab! You have two stages, “Nurture” seeds are your flax/pumpkin mix from day 1 of your period to 14, then “Radiate” seeds are your sunflower/sesame mix from days 15-28.
Follicular: The pumpkin and flax seed combo is a potent one to help your body detoxify the extra estrogen that can plague this time of the month (the lignans especially from the flax seeds bind to excess estrogen and help your body to eliminate it) High zinc levels in pumpkin seeds prevent the estrogen from converting to harmful forms of testosterone and also prime your body for progesterone production which will happen in the second half of the cycle.
Luteal: The sunflower and sesame combo used in the luteal phase of the cycle has a much lighter dose of lignans from the sesame seeds, but is rich in zinc and selenium which helps progesterone production. These seeds are also a rich source of linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid which can convert to gamma linolenic acid, which also helps the balance between progesterone and estrogen.
Day 1 – 14 (Follicular phase):
1 tbsp flax seeds
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
Day 15 – 28 (Luteal phase):
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp sesame seeds
Oh and the taste??? Ummmm why have I been grinding my own seeds this long???the texture and taste of these seeds are amazing! I literally just dumped 2 tablespoons in my already “blended”smoothie” and it tasted incredible. Every woman should be seed cycling!
You can get the month supply one time or you can hop on their monthly program which is a big savings! Basically having your seeds daily is less than $1.20 a day. You can also use BRE15 to get a discount. I’m so excited for you to try them!
How did I get so lucky with this cutie? She is my mini, my sidekick, literally attached to my hip everyday. If things were as they were this time last year she would be in school right now from 8:45-3:10 everyday!!! I would finally have my alone time for the first time in 5 years with all three kids gone all day in ONE school together. . Ironically a memory popped up on my Facebook this time last year with a picture of my family and my intention for 2020 which was to spend more quality time with them. I even listed off things that were preventing me from doing that, like schedules, school, sports, running a business. Be careful what you wish for! Two months later all kids were sent home, no more sports, businesses closed. What a true blessing in disguise!You may not get what you want in the way WANT it but you sure get it in the way you NEED it.

The new norm Sat-Mon. Snuggles and shows on the couch until 🤷🏻♀️, pajamas most of the day, no makeup (for either of us🤣) then outdoors for some Vit D🌞Tues-Fri is about the same other than making sure we are logged in for distant learning, and possibly adding some makeup and clean clothes on to feel like I’m alive.
Now….let’s 👏🏻get 👏🏻real….while this picture looks cozy and cuddly, the feelings I’ve been feeling inside are not that. Yesterday was rough for me and it started bringing me back to my anxiety days. Hearing about forced face masks, rumors about not reopening school in the fall, or continued distance learning had me feeling anxious. Thinking about the poor kids in abusive homes where school is their only outlet to feel loved, important, and fed had me in tears. Yes, thinking about all of this probably isn’t the best, and instead we should feel gratitude for our health and loved ones. that’s F-ing hard sometimes.
We all want to get back to our lives, kids sports, socializing, summer vacations, and all of that, unfortunately we don’t know if and when that will be.😢So for now, lean on your family and friends for support, send encouraging cards and FaceTime each other, reach out to those moms that you see are struggling, because social media isn’t all what it seems at times and a HUGE SHOUT OUT to all those moms that are doing their best while in tears😭! I see you, I support you, and I’m with you. 🙏🏻
If you need me I’ll be in the corner sniffing my Joy Oil and drinking my fifth cup of Peppermint coffee. 🌱☕️Happy Monday y’all!
People have been asking me a lot with what my family has been taking to support our immunity in these scary times! So I thought I would share! Along with these supplements we diffuse thieves every day in our home, as well as use the thieves roller on the bottom of our feet every night. We also make sure we are cleaning with Thieves household cleaner and taking on our hand sanitizers wherever we go!!
These are Our daily supplements!!
Zinc is an essential trace mineral for human health. Every person needs it! Not only does it support a healthy metabolism and immune system, but it’s also a potent antioxidant.
Cats Claw supplement goes hand in hand and is a powerhouse when supporting your immune system.
PROBIOTICS! These are Young Living and tastes like pixie sticks! I’m all about gut health! Your immunity lies in your gut! if you have an unhealthy got most likely you get sick a lot or have digestive problems, Probiotics are huge for gut health. These probiotics do not have to be refrigerated since they are in individually sealed packs. They are formulated for children two years and over. With over 8 billion active live cultures to support digestive and immune health. They also help with occasional constipation and diarrhea as well.
VIT C!!! This liposomal encapsulation helps protect the Vitamin C as it passes through the digestive tract, thus allowing for improved absorption in the intestines and at the cellular level. Each packet is 1000mg.
And lastly getting that VIT D in! This is my favorite form of vegan vitamin D. Many people take Vitamin D and calcium supplements thinking they’re helping their bones, the truth is without the addition of Vitamin K2, such a health regimen could prove dangerous. Without Vitamin K2, the body cannot direct calcium to the bones where it’s needed; instead, the calcium resides in soft tissue (like the arteries).* Vitamin K deficiency is widespread—even in healthy adults. To get the range of benefits that Vitamin K offers, you must take Vitamin K2 as a supplement, food sources are limited, at best. Vitamin K2 is a fat-soluble substance and is needed for normal blood coagulation. Vitamin K2 has been shown to inhibit calcium deposits (i.e., calcification) in blood vessels and even improve arterial flexibility.*
If you could describe your decade in one word what would it be??? Mine is FREEDOM!!!
This 2009 picture was right before I got pregnant with our first child. I was bodybuilding 5x a week, eating 50grams or more of animal protein every day, drinking, cause I figured since I worked out so much it wouldn’t effect me, no spiritual practice, couldn’t and wouldn’t meditate, no mindfulness, over the counter meds when I needed them, ignorant as ever, and though I always put a smile on my face, I know now, she felt trapped.
Fast forward 10 YEARS and 3 kids later. 12 pounds lighter and leaner, plant based diet, 💯 toxic free, daily meditations and mindfulness, self love, and I am open MORE than ever!
What changed you might ask? After my first was born I suffered from postpartum depression and anxiety and it scared the shit out of me!!! I started searching for more, I needed more. Spiritually and Physically. When you have a knowing that there is so much more than this 3D shit that’s right in front of you, then you start to wake the F up and change internally, then your external will follow suit. I was finally able to rid myself from ancestral and childhood trauma, that May or may not have been mine, Healed wounds, Took time for my own spiritual and personal growth, stop counting calories and taking meds and instead use more plants as well as using my “intuition” and my “knowing” of what is right for me, and continue to Educate myself more and more.
When I look at the first picture, I don’t see the physical, I see what she was missing inside. FREEDOM. She is FREE now.

Baby teeth!!!! How tiny and fragile they are. Holding this in my hand reminds me how fast our babies grow. This tooth that once caused sleepless nights and baby tears now brings joy with some money under a pillow.
Let me just say I am the worst Tooth Fairy Ever!!! 🧚🏼♀️We always forget!!! This time I left $ on the top of the stairs to remind me. Other times I have scurried in the early am, gentle sliding the money under the pillow and gently grabbing the tooth, once pretended that the $ fell under the bed or sheets, and even one time accidentally grabbed a $100 bill in the dark instead of a $5 and slid it under the pillow, only to have an ecstatic 5 year old running into our rooms waving that Benjamin at 6am!!! SHITTTTTTT!! How will we compete with that for another 26 teeth!!
Which leads me to, why are we lying to them about a fairy coming into their window in the middle of the night to take their teeth? Or a bunny sneaking in the house leaving behind chocolate eggs and goodies, or the best…an old white man who knows if they are sleeping, awake, or if they’ve been bad so be good for goodness sake! #stalker seriously tho! It would be way easier on us as parents to tell them the truth! I can see it now! All my holidays spent stress free on a beach in Hawaii, pulling teeth and eating Nice cream!! for now, I’m sure I’ll keep up the white lies until it backfires.
Even though the New Moon was yesterday, Its Gemini energy is still strong so make sure you take some time today to pray, meditate, write down your intentions for the month ahead.
The Gemini sign is known for its powers of communication and charm. So this month take a Gemini-style approach to your dreams and goals. Connect to your dream. Talk about it. Meditate on it. Communicate. Share it with those around you. Also If there is something we wish to communicate or speak up about, the New Moon will be supporting us to find our courage and strength. Happy New Mooning!
This 👏🏻girl right 👏🏻here. She is why I don’t give up when I’m doing that last push-up, and why I DONT weight myself, She is also why I DO hold my tongue when I’m about to say something negative about myself. But mostly she’s why I DONT hold my tongue about some things, show my emotions, speak my mind, spread truth, show strength, and empower other Women to do the same.
Here’s to those that said no and asked for more, To women that dare to raise their voices for the cause they believe in!!
Here’s to all the strong women! May be know them, may be be them, may we RAISE them!
