Before SHUTTHEKALEUP I was an assistant store manager at Barneys New York in Costa Mesa. I was battling an ED at the time and it was hard since I was in an industry that was solely based on appearance.
After being laid off from work, it was like a weight was lifted and I was able to become who I am now. I had the time to take yoga sculpt teacher training and was able to plan my wedding with no stress. The ED literally fell off and I had found balance without even looking for it. I feel extremely blessed.
Stop thinking food is an enemy. Food is fuel. You’re beautifully made and have much more to you than looks. Stay positive and around people who truly love you and can help with any triggers you might have. Speak out loud to how you’re feeling without being shy and OWN IT.
I started cooking about five years ago. I was 23 when I first got into food and being hands-on in the kitchen.
SHUTTHEKALEUP is who I am, it’s a lifestyle and it’s most importantly.. being real. It came from me wanting to start a feed that had everything from yoga, real food, real life and GLUTEN.. cause you can’t live life without enjoying the so called ‘bad foods’ in balance!
My food style is easy, quick and so bright. I literally whip up everything I make so quickly because my hunger always creeps in strong!
Everything under the sun. I love cross training and yoga mostly.
It’s been a huge impact as a mama. I’ve learned lots throughout my struggles and finding balance has helped me help my family lead a healthy lifestyle using food as medicine for our bodies.
Letting my fears go and just owning who I am. I’m no longer scared of what people may think of me so I live much happier knowing I’m content with myself and the family my husband and I are growing. Now we celebrate with good company and real food without thinking “how many calories is in that?” “oh no I can’t have that” so on and so forth.
One of my favorite recipes is my cookie recipe that my husband and I love and I also make it quite often! try it;
Motherhood has changed me into a more selfless person. I thought I was selfless when I got married but then you have a kid and you’re like, okay.. ya no. Hahah! So I enjoy the things I get to do for my son. The best part is being able to exclusively nurse him. The hardest part is to have a busy schedule and have to nurse him. It’s definitely a full time job and it’s been so difficult to stop everything I’m doing to feed for 30min-1hr, but I wouldn’t change that for anything in this world since that bond is literally incomparable.
Breakfast, I love it and I can’t wait for it! Shortly after would be the gym.
