10 Minute HEALTHY Pumpkin Spice Energy Balls | Fitness Vlog

You guys are new to my blog hello subscribe down below. But if you’re my Starling famil welcome back today, you’re reading a fitness vlog look like a legit egg, it’s literally the most inconvenient spot ever for a car good morning, guys it is a Monday morning. It is 648. In the morning I just finished my first workout of the day.

It was amazing, so it was at my gym that I go to its lifetime. Fitness is the gym that I go to. I teach it. Soul beats studio, which is right, each might spin studios, but I like lift weights and like do yoga and like do other workouts at like my gym, called lifetime fitness. I know some people like tend to get confused, but that’s what’s up with that. So anyway, I just did an amazing workout. It was called chisel and it was like the best way that I can explain it.

It was like hit with a lot of strengthening and toning and a lot of weights, so it was like a high intense. I was like dripping buckets. Okay, like I am soaking, wet right now in my clothes, so I’m just really glad that I’m going home and it was a very intense workout next time that I do it. I’m not doing it next week because I’m teaching at 5:45 on a Monday, but I think I might do it saturday 8:30.

It was such an amazing, workout and I’ll try to get footage of it. I like didn’t know the vibe of the class. I don’t want to bring my phone for the first time, but now I know the vibe and I can definitely bring my phone. So I was going to like take that class and then I was going to stay in box a little bit and like do a little bit of ABS and run a little bit. But now after that class I’m going home because I am like that was a huge full body.

Workout and I don’t really see the need in working out even more. But I am going back to gym around like 8:45 9 because I’m taking 9:30 hot yoga and that’s a hot yoga class. But I was going to stay from like 5:45, literally until 10:30 p.M. In my yoga class ends because it starts at 9:30. But now I’m like wow. That was like very logical. It’s going to think that I I actually do that, so I’m not doing that! I’m going home I’m going to make like a little breakfast for myself, I’m going to change work a little bit get my stuff together, probably have a coffee or a tea, and then I’m going to come back.

Do my yoga and then get started with my day. That’s what’s up for today. All that I have on top for today is yoga at 9:30 and then I’m teaching at five o’clock spin and that’s it. So it’s very chill day here I might take bar tonight. I might go back to life time in like sauna and jacuzzi a little bit. I don’t really know what’s up yet but um yeah. That is the day, and also this is my first article with my new hair, which you can’t even really see it.

But I got my extensions taken out and I I went like way more rooted for the fall, and I also have like a little gray now. So that’s super exciting, but yeah that’s what’s up I’m getting hungry, so I’m really glad that I’m going home to eat this is the breakfast. I’ve been eating, will 80 yesterday and I’m eating it today and I’m really looking forward to it. So I have the Ezekiel English muffin with protein and a little bit of peanut butter, some bananas.

I have apples and blueberries because antioxidants and then I have my protein over here of two: there are fried eggs but they’re only fried with like I just put cooking spray down like there’s, no oil or anything so yeah, that’s breakfast and it’s super filling. You get your fats, carbs proteins, so I’m going to leave for yoga in a couple of minutes, but before I do I’m just going to make some green tea to go.

I am really freaking tired today, which is super not like me like. I’m normally never really tired when I wake up this early, so I think I might have to grab like a coffee on the way out of the yoga there’s like a cafe in lifetime, so I might just get like a cold brew or something with a little Bit of almond milk, like I don’t really want to go to yoga, I honestly just want to stay here and sleep, but it’s such a nice day out that I know the drive to the gym is going to make me like more excited to be at the Gym but if I get there and I’m late because of traffic, I’m just going to skip it and go to the mall cuz, the gym in the malls are right.

Next to each other, I’m going to buy fall candles. You might be thinking Tori. Why don’t you go to the mall after the gym um? Well, you see you see I could, but then I have to bring a change of clothes because I got really freaking sweaty after yoga and um. Do I really want to do that today? People always ask me: if I count calories, I don’t count calories. My mom thinks that I should count calories because I have very large portion sizes and I always complain that my thighs are getting big but don’t count calories um.

That’s just because, in my mind how much I work out and like how much I eat like real Whole Foods. I’m like I don’t really need to count calories. So no, I don’t count calories and also I’m just looking here on the back of the agave thing. Like if I were to count calories, you would have to count so much like how much it gava do. You think how much olive oil are using like how many blueberries you eat, like it just seems very obsessive, and to me that doesn’t always seem healthy, and I always like I caution a lot of people to not become too obsessive over what they eat and like How much they work out and like don’t really, you know it’s great to live a healthy lifestyle, but don’t let it overcome your life like.

I know for me like the way I live. My life isn’t a healthy lifestyle, which is perfectly healthy and normal, but it becomes a problem when you begin to obsess over every little thing that you do. I went to a chart on my phone. Let’s go to yoga, so I’m on my way to yoga and I don’t know why there is so much traffic, there’s normally a lot of traffic on this highway, but like around this time, it’s when it always clears out, but I’m assuming that there’s like a accident Or something because, like it’s, super slow moving and it’s I’ve been sitting in it for like so long, so I’m going to actually miss yoga.

I took my hair down because I was like ok, I’m not ruining my hair with that hair cells, I’m not and pointy yoga. So I’m going to go home and get ready for the day. I might stop on the way and like get a coffee or something, but I’m just going to go home, get ready for the day. There’s a duncan right here, so I might just go right there. I’m really sad that, like I miss as the overclass cuz, it starts in five minutes and I’m still 15 minutes away and like you can walk in late to a yoga class.

But like do I really want to be that. Well that does that like? No, I don’t ever really have to think do my coffee it or Dubai hi. Can I have an iced medium coffee with almond milk, please hi, how are you that’s what almond milk? Thank you thanks. So much have a good one god, I’m so frickin frantic every single time. I leave a drive-thru like I mean so rushed ah back for my fail of yoga kind of sad, I’m going to make pumpkin energy balls.

I’ve been wanting. It’s like freakin fall outside okay. It’s like the perfect weather, it’s fall and I don’t have anything a pumpkin in my house like for real. How sad is that dates? I have pecans, I don’t have, but I have walnuts so pumpkin puree, that’s the big kicker. Is this different than puree under scent pumpkin, whatever we’re going to use it, so I’m kind of making up my own as I go so, let’s just see how this works out place aids into a small bowl and cover with water.

So those asked me to put dates in a bowl of water. Could that’s worded very poorly if it is, I don’t have a food processor, so I’m doing this in a blender. Let’s hope one cup of deep water, pecans walnuts same difference. That looks good to me. Assert a cup of pumpkin peanut butter, I’m just going to add the rest of the peanut butter. That’s in this jar. I know that I’m going to really enjoy it in my fourth cup here, coconut flakes, I’m also going to add in some flax seed and um.

She is deep now for the spices about two teaspoons of vanilla. I have this recipe that I’m going off of, but I’m also just sort of like improvising a little bit just going to do a little love touch here of nutmeg. I’m also going to do a little lower touch here of cinnamon, and I have my pumpkin pie. Cuz, I’m freaking awesome little love touch of that some pink Himalayan salt to taste. Oh! This is where all the sugar comes in right here see how this works.

Okay, this might take me a couple of times because I have a food processor, so I’m going to have to keep like ooh. Yes, it’s it’s doing good things. So I’ve transferred everything into a bowl, I’m going to try this by hand and then I might throw it in the blender at the end again, this consistency, it’s perfect alright, so it looks like this now. This consistency is literally it’s so perfect and I’m keeping mine like a little chunky cuz.

I can’t get it perfect. I’m going to buy a food processor because I think I’m going to make balls all the time now cuz. This is seriously like freaking amazing, so you’re going to put this in the fridge for 30 minutes to let it chill and then you roll it into balls and we’ll be back. I just got ready for the day, thank God because I literally was like ugh lean. Like I was just not about that at all – and I was just feel so much better when I like have myself put together, but whatever anyway they’ve been chilling for about 30-40 minutes now.

So it’s time to roll the balls. I think I’m going to be a good good friend and drop a few of these balls off my friend’s house, because I know that she would probably want some of these. It’s first just taste: um Wow, okay, Wow, and these are really good to eat like right before a workout after workout they’re like a healthy little pumpkin spice treat, but trust me like you’ll, be eating these like crazy and there you go pumpkin spice energy balls woo.

So I’m actually going to go deliver some pumpkin boss, my friend, because she wants some but um. I feel like. I can’t continue this vlog without saying this. So today is Monday October 2nd, which means that last night in Las Vegas there is a mass shooting which is now confirmed to be the largest mass shooting in US astrayed. I really have chills saying that any families anyone affected personally my thoughts are with you.

I’m thinking of you, I have so much sympathy and my heart just aches hearing about this horrible tragedy and something absolutely needs to change. I don’t want to get into my political views. Gun control is a huge issue in our, and it is something that needs to be stopped, and I don’t know how many more mass shootings and how many more killings it takes until people under like until people realize that something needs to be changed.

You know a lot of my viewers are from Vegas and I know I’m sure there’s a couple of you that were directly affected by this, and I am just so so so sorry to hear about this and I’m so sorry that you have to go through this And I’m over here making these like pumpkin spice balls and I’m like burying my head in the sand, but like the world is such an evil place. Sometimes it’s! Oh. I can’t talk about anymore.

I’m just sorry and my thoughts are with you and I stand right. There with everyone else – and I completely agree that something needs to be done, because our people cannot keep dying from senseless deaths and murders from our own people, it’s absolutely horrible. So with that being said, I’m going to do my dishes, put some balls in a container and drive them over to my friend and just appreciate the beautiful day.

I have out in front of me and live my life. The best that I can, while also trying to just make everyone else around me, happy, and I think that’s all that we can do. That is the only way I know how to help the situation is a spread, love and not hate, and I encourage everyone else to do the same thing. Well, it’s for you. Let me try one. Did you obviously had one yeah I’ve had well, let me know what you think good way go.

They got a little like soft in the car, but yeah. That’s definitely move. Thank you. Alright, my hair’s a mess, and that means the day is well over. It’s like 9:30 now, but I had like three pumpkin energy balls for dessert they’re, just so frickin good and everyone, I’m not getting so many people have texted me, I’m asking for the recipe cuz. I throw my Instagram story, so these are going to be hit.

Make them you guys are going to love them and yes, okay, I’m going to go subscribe, leave a comment and be happy. Love love one another: okay, that was the worst intro of my life bye. I love you.

A new kind of pumpkin seed snack! Roasted by two men.




I mean you name it this pumpkin XYZ. So all the sugar, all the high fructose corn syrup or simple sugar. Whatever you want to call it, there actually are health benefits to some of the ingredients, especially if you can make it our own. So I want to talk to you today about those spices that just for myself in the winter, make your day so much cozier.

I don’t know all the ingredients to the pumpkin spice latte, but I’m one of those people who could taste something and just kind of guess and work my way through the recipe and figure out. What’s in there. I don’t even know if there’s pumpkin flavored pumpkin spice lattes ginger clove. That’s what really makes it the comfort drink that it is so cinnamon. So there are 250 different types of cinnamon plants.

Here, I’m showing you what it looks like in its most natural form. There’s even a study that shows that patients who had six grams of cinnamon for 40 days had a lower fasting blood sugar and there’s more research being done for metabolic syndrome, which is very, very common in the United States at least. It also helps with breast milk production. It has blood pressure, lowering effects. There are many proofs that it improves digestion for those with a cold.

It could also help with D congestion and used as an essential oil. It could also be used as an expectorant to break up that mucus when you need to cough the clove comes from a flower bud. It was originally found in Indonesia. It’s been shown to help with dental pain as well as help with digestion. Now too much is actually toxic, and if you ever bit into one of these, you know how toxic it tastes you don’t want too much.

You just want a little bit, it’s safest, just to cook with it, and you should be just fine if using the oil. Definitely consult a professional, so many benefits to ginger between 1 and 4 grams, a day of ginger has helped with arthritis, nausea, nausea and vomiting of pregnancy has improved digestion by stimulating the pancreas has also shown to increase gut motility. It’s also used as an expectorant.

So if you have a mucus eikhoff that can help with that, it’s also helped with other respiratory tract issues, helped with dry mouth. The list goes on and on and on. It’s only been shown to have detrimental effects when you go over 6 grams, with ulcers gastritis and also has been shown to have blood thinning properties, but that’s at 10 grams a day which is a whole lot and yummy met. Meg nutmeg is definitely found in Grenada and this is the nut inside the fruit, and this is how it looks when it’s dried and then you could use it with a grater to grind it up into a fine powder in terms of medical uses.

It’s been a great adjunct into some creams that help with diabetic neuropathy and nerve pain, and otherwise it’s just a great accompaniment to the other spices. Now coffee gets a bad rep, but it actually has some awesome benefits, and this is due to something called polyphenols. The polyphenols are responsible for its bitter flavor, but this actually gives an antioxidant effect. A study shows that 4 to 7 cups a day of coffee, actually decreased the incidence of type 2 diabetes, but if you’re really going to have that much coffee, you’re going to end up with a whole bunch of other issues, including some very severe reflux.

Another study showed that there was actually a decrease in stroke in women who had regular coffee use and if I had to try out this recipe, which I may do, I would just do my instant coffee and sprinkle a little pumpkin pie spice on there. I’ll probably also add just a little and use honey or brown sugar instead of they’re, simple sugar desert Cheers pretty good for homemade pumpkin, spice latte made from instant coffee and all my ground spices make it easier if that’s too overwhelming, to get all those spices.

Just pick up some pumpkin spice well, I hope you enjoyed this article, the benefits of pumpkin spice lattes, especially if you make it at home yourself, don’t forget to like this article if you’ve enjoyed it make sure to subscribe.
