REVIEW: Loma Linda Thai Sweet Chili Fishless Tuna

I’m not one of those vegans who turns up their nose at "meat alternatives”. Which is odd because I never liked meat. Especially red meat. It would take me like an hour to eat 1/4 of a burger. Cutting out meat was not a struggle for me at all. Which is interesting why I’ll pour down a huge impossible burger. But that’s for another psycho-analyzation time.


I have tried Loma’s tuna in a can and really enjoyed it so I wanted to try out this easy and ready to go tuna preseasoned!

Is Health A Luxury?

I use to think it was. I thought being healthy was a luxury that as a high school student, college student, or broke 20 something year old I couldn’t afford. I couldn’t afford $9 juices, a membership to SoulCycle, or even a 1:1 coach to help guide me through the process. Did that mean I couldn’t be healthy or at my maximum health?

Best Places To Start Reducing Toxins In Home

When I first thought about the idea of reducing toxins and going chemical-free, I was very very overwhelmed. Honestly I can still be overwhelmed somedays at my lack of full control over what I expose my self to. It was really my move to Hanoi, Vietnam and joining doTERRA that pushed me to think long and hard about what I was exposing myself to and how I could make sure it contributed to my health instead of hurting me.

I like to start simple and small.

Being Your Own Health Advocate

The modern Western health care system is set up today so you don’t have to do much thinking. It’s also set up so you’re a number that gets moved along. Doctors barely have time for 15 minutes with you. Which is not their fault at all but a result of the commercialized and capitalistic society that governs the system. (I will proceed to stay on my soap box)

Why You Should Never Follow A Meal Plan

I use to be obsessed with meal plans. Like tell me EXACTLY what to eat and I’ll do it. But I need specifics. I liked knowing that that the guess work was taken out of what to eat and all I had to do was cook. I searched out meal plans and found ones I liked and paid quite a bit of money over time for them.

Then when I started really diving into my own health I realized something- meal plans don’t work.
