This week, we’re spending the day with nutrition therapist, holistic aesthetician, whole food lover, and believer of balance, Emily Spaeth Lundberg.
7AM: Morning Movement
A typical day for me usually includes 4 things: movement, work, nourishment and family. Starting off my day with some movement helps to wake me up and get my mind flowing before I spend the next few hours at my computer. Movement for me really depends on the day - how I’m feeling and my energy levels are the determining factors for what I choose to do that day for my workout. However, lately it’s been a lot of running as I’m training for a half marathon, along with cross training with weights and yoga to stretch it out by the end of the day!
I also love to fuel my day with delicious, nutritious foods. As a health coach, nutritionist + self care advocate, it’s so important to me to live the values I preach to my clients! In the morning this means starting off with eggs on avocado toast + sauerkraut, a smoothie or even my all-time favorite pancakes: 1 egg, 2 tbsp gluten-free quick oats and 1 banana smashed together and cooked low + slow. Oh, and can’t forget a warm matcha latte!! My favorite way to boost energy and stay focused throughout the morning. (Pst... if you love matcha as much as I do, try Splendid Spoon's new Green Matcha smoothie!).
12PM: Lunch + Midday Movement!
Because I work from home, I sit a ton throughout the day. So a good walk with my pup, Jack, or even a mid-day run is a nice way to break up the day if I haven’t already worked out! I also cook at home a lot, so love when I can quickly heat up a Splendid Spoon soup or even just pop open a smoothie. I love their motto that busy CAN be healthy - they’re a big reason why I can go about my day and still rock it without spending a ton of time or energy on making food to fuel me through the rest of my workday.
6:30PM: Dinner + Relaxing
By the time the end of the day rolls around, yoga + meditation are my lifesavers for letting any stressors go and calming down for the evening. Spending time with my husband and Jack are so refreshing and I find this perfect pairing of yoga, family… and maybe a little wine ;) rejuvenate me for another day of living my passion and helping others along the way!
