“When people drink regular soda, they get their dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and, most importantly, their opioids raised. This is the complete high... We spend a much larger percentage of our lives going around seeking these unconscious highs than we realize.” @dr.joemalone #BattlesOfTheSexes #September2018 Get a signed copy (for price of shipping) by clicking the link in my bio before it comes out in bookstores.
@downtownnashvilley had a sunset rooftop yoga class this week led by @paygemcmahon (who was more inspiring than I can express) and for a long time I’ve considered yoga teacher training - I’ve been practicing for 1.5 years almost on the daily and it’s overpowered every other type of exercise I’ve done. Plus I gravitate to teaching opportunities because I ❤️ it. Any advice #Nashville? Where are the great yoga teacher training opportunities in our area?
Take your pick ▪️▪️▪️ We’ve been exploring dining out more than usual in our nutrition seminars — The fear of leaving food on your plate is toxic to your health ▪️▪️▪️ It will either end up on your waist or in a trash can 🙃
Thanks for the hospitality @wmnashville and for offering such a great benefit to your employees! Happy and healthy employees = happy and healthy business. Also thank you @thebackrubco for the opportunity!
I get to hang out @wmnashville this afternoon talking about #healthy eating at restaurants! I ❤️ my job
Skip the queso. Go to the gym instead of the bar. Bring your own food to the party. Cook instead of driving-thru. Work out while your kids play at the park while the other moms sit on the bench. Run a race while your family sleeps in. Follow a plan instead of your appetite. ••• Healthy used to be the norm, but it just isn’t anymore. If you’re “one of those” “healthy weirdos,” keep it up 👊🏼💪🏼
@dr.joemalone and I did a thing and wrote a book. He is the true mastermind, but it has been my deepest pleasure serving as his sidekick and partner in crime on this project. Book will hit “New Releases” in major bookstores in September. eBook comes out in July. Want a copy now? I can hook you up. I’ll be sharing teasers from the book as the days move on toward its release.
This was NOT comfortable, so I presume I did something right this morning. Thanks @wellnessinsideout for the class - hands down best spin class I’ve ever been to. #EarnedAMargarita #IntermittentFastingDay1
Credit: @badparentingmoments — Every time I spend 30-60 minutes preparing a dinner with love. “I don’t want that,” they say. And I shove their face in it. Just kidding, I spend another 20 minutes microwaving junk food and grumbling. @amyskitchen Mac and Cheese is always a winner, and I keep at least 6 cups of it on hand at all times to mentally cope with the struggle.
Credit: @herviewfromhome — I have a cousin that ate white bread with ketchup on it at Sunday night dinner many years ago. I didn’t have kids yet, and I thought, “How?! With all this delicious food how did it come to that?!” Now I know.... There is no room for judgement when it comes to someone trying to feed their kid. Everybody’s just doing their best to keep those suckers alive! What are your go-to healthy foods that your kids will actually eat? For mine, it’s smoothies, grapes, and applesauce packets.
Credit: @themotheroctopus — After transitioning to staying “at home” (we live in Nashville, we’re never at home there’s too much fun to be had) with my boys, I quickly discovered that feeding them was my absolute least favorite part of the day. 20 minutes after every meal: “I want a snack.” WHYYY?! I’m working on a blog post now with my coping strategies, but my biggest has been keeping a massive drawer full of snacks and pulling it down whenever they ask for snacks so they can pick and I don’t have to throw a bunch of wasted food away. What are your tricks for feeding kids?? I’ll add it to my blog post with a shoutout.
Stop and look up at the worm moon Nashville. ▪️▪️▪️ Of all the things we feed ourselves, the beauty of the earth is one of the best. ▪️▪️▪️ #nashville #musiccity #moon #fullmoon #beauty #food #foodforthesoul #eyecandy #beautyoftheearth #enjoythesimplethings #minimalism #simplicity #simpleticnutrition
Are your goals scale or measurement-based? Is it making you CRAZY?? ▪️▪️▪️ For some, body image goals are fine. For many others, they aren’t fine. ▪️▪️▪️ Try making your goals action-based instead of image-based if you’re one of those that gets depressed and scared every time you step on a scale. ▪️▪️▪️ Ideas: 10 minutes of cardio every day 4 servings of veggies every day 50 squats daily for 30 days 64 ounces of water every day Eat out only 1 time per week Set aside 2 hours to create your meal plan Prep 12 meals every Sunday night Etc..... ▪️▪️▪️ With the right action-based goals, results you want are a natural side effect. ▪️▪️▪️ #minimalist #fitness #health #mealprep #healthyweight #goals #positivegains #strength #move #lift #walk #run #prevention #diabetes #nashvillehealth #nashville #musiccity #ImHealthierTN #eatright #eatlife #fitfam #gains #goals #fitnessmotivation #strength #nashvillenutritionist #greatness #easyrecipes #simplicity #simpleticnutrition
10 pull ups and 1 chin-up to grow on. It’s amazing how much stronger I feel in just a little over a week. ▪️▪️▪️ As a reminder, in my group seminars we’re in the goals month so I’m smashing my own goals along with participants. Goal is to be able to do 10 strict body weight pull ups consecutively by 5.22.18. ▪️▪️▪️ Last week I could do 6 - I’ve been doing 10 pull ups however I’m able every day and every day I feel stronger and stronger! ▪️▪️▪️ #minimalist #fitness #health #mealprep #healthyweight #goals #positivegains #strength #move #lift #walk #run #prevention #diabetes #nashvillehealth #nashville #musiccity #ImHealthierTN #eatright #eatlife #fitfam #gains #goals #fitnessmotivation #strength #nashvillenutritionist #progress #pullups #simplicity #simpleticnutrition

I’m Sarah for those that are new to what Simpletic Nutrition is.. aka just me doing what I love - teaching individuals and groups about nutrition, fitness, and everything in between. ▪️▪️▪️ I’m a Registered Dietitian, Board Certified Specialist in Gerontological Nutrition, Certified Lactation Counselor, Nashvillian, runner, Mom of boys, soon-to-be personal trainer. I eat McDonald’s and pizza occasionally. I don’t follow a “diet” or recommend them. I preach eating mostly living food and moving a lot. This looks vastly different for every person. ▪️▪️▪️ I love watching people experience personal growth and find the best of themselves. ▪️▪️▪️ Let me know how I can serve you, your infant, your family, your clinic, your company, your blog, your employees, your church, your non-profit. 🖤🖤🖤
In this week’s seminar’s I’m sharing my goals and leading participants to create their own. ▪️▪️▪️ Big goal: 10 consecutive strict body weigh pull ups by 5.22.18 ▪️▪️▪️ I’m at 6 right now with 2 resistance bands for assistance. ▪️▪️▪️ Small goal: Do upper body workout 2x/week and 10 pull ups, nonconsecutive with assistance every day and decrease amount of assistance needed progressively each week x12 weeks. ▪️▪️▪️ Barriers: social media use, distractions ▪️▪️▪️ Action: Time block 10 minutes every day for pull ups and set a timer after dinner every night to force myself off social media. ▪️▪️▪️ I’ll continually share progress here with the hashtag #SimpleticGoals and those that want to share their goals tag @nashville_nutritionist or use the hashtag.. go get moving ✌🏼
In addition to goal setting, I’m going to get real with folks about carbs in the upcoming seminars ▪️▪️▪️ What exactly is a carb? What does it do in my body when I eat it? How much do I need? What kind of carbs do I need? When should I eat them? All of these questions and more will be answered.. ▪️▪️▪️ This is actually my favorite part of the series. Pretty excited 🤩
