Our unrefined, ethically traded Ximenia oil comes from Namibia where women harvest the ripe fruits from the ground after they’ve fallen from the trees. 🌳 Harvesters carry the fruit to their homesteads where they are left to dry. The dried fruits are then cracked and de-pulped by hand, and Fairly traded to female, artisan producers who cold-press the kernels to produce our nutrient-rich Ximenia oil. 🌰 The women who perform this work are able to generate a substantial cash income, especially in the off season when work is scarce and Ximenia fruit is abundant. The income generated through their work empowers these women - often single mothers - to provide for their families in ways previously not possible.✖️🏳 #empoweredequalsbeautiful#risetogether

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of cooking and baking for the holidays and it really got me thinking about how far I have come in my own personal health journey, and how happy I am to have the wonderful relationship I have with food and my body today...but boy did it take a while to get here! ✨ There definitely was a time when I had so many “rules” about my food and so much of my self-worth was wrapped up in my weight and body that I truly wasn’t able to really enjoy the holidays ✨ And I know that feelings of guilt and shame especially when it comes to food are very common this time of year, but they truly don’t have to be ✨ So today I’m talking all about how to tackle food related feelings of guilt around the holidays, and the steps I use to help support my own nutrition clients ✨ O and this cranberry streusel breakfast cake 😍 the recipe is up on my website under sweets #bodylove

"Did you know emotions and memories can be triggered by a simple sensory cue: smell? I love to sit in cozy PJs by the tree and smell the aroma of a candle. Brings back cozy memories of Christmas🎄 as a child." - @heidstyle
