5 Verses to Fuel Your Workouts


Hey girl!

I know you know that fueling your body with the right food and fluids is vital for your workouts and overall health…but are you fueling your mind and heart with good stuff, too?

Your mental and spiritual health is even more important than your physical health! Yet, it’s so easy to get distracted on our outward appearance and physical goals, so much so that we neglect our souls. I’ve been there too.

That’s why today, I’m sharing 5 bible verses to fuel your workouts, and to inspire you for the week ahead. These little nuggets of scripture point me back to what matters most — not weight loss, or finish lines, or perfect health – but our eternal prize in Heaven, and in knowing Jesus.

5 Verses to Fuel Your Workouts

1 Corinthians 9:24-27: Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

Isaiah 40:29-31: He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20: Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.

2 Timothy 4:7: I have competed well; I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

1 Corinthians 10:31: So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Happy Monday – have a great week!

FREE Plant-Based Meal Plan

Plant-Based Meals.jpg

Hi, y’all. I’ve got a little free gift for you today!

Over the weekend, I shared a quick picture of my meal plan for the coming week in my Instagram stories. I received an overwhelming response of votes and direct messages asking more info about it, and I feel like I’m always getting questions about “sooo…you’re vegan, right? What do you actually eat?” both online and in real, everyday life.

I’m here to debunk the myth that eating a plant-based diet is two things: complicated and expensive. It is truly neither of those! I am no domestic goddess – and that’s why plant-based eating works so well for me. I’ve also noticed significant improvement in my skin, stress, recovery from running, and overall health since switching to a 99% plant-based diet about two years ago.

To answer your questions and to show you how easy it is…(and to hope to inspire you to eat more plants yourself!), I created a free six-day sample meal plan, grocery list, and short “recipes” to share with you. It’s super affordable compared to an average grocery budget, and it’s easy to put together for yourself or for your whole family. This plan will show you that eating plant-based is even easier and more convenient than the standard American diet. And so much better for you in the long run, too. Have you watched What the Health yet? Not to mention, all of the sweet animals and natural resources that you alone, as just one individual, can save by making the switch.

To get the free meal plan, please complete this form and I’ll send one to you today.

Much love to you,

Reading The End of Me by Kyle Idleman (for personal growth) and A Love Like No Other by Pamela Kruger (for work).

Watching Not much TV or Netflix these days, but we saw Mission Impossible – Fallout over the weekend and it was fantastic!

Listening To the “Hot Country” playlist made by Spotify. Loooove that happy summertime music!

Eating My favorite protein bars – No Cow! They’re vegan, high-protein (20g!) and super low sugar (1g)! It’s not a candy bar disguised as a protein bar, like so many of the nasty things out on the market right now! Save 20% off your first No Cow order by using code charlottea20.

Drinking Rose as a favorite treat lately – I’ve never had it before this summer and now it’s my go-to refreshing indulgence on the weekends. 🙂

Anticipating running my first trail race in a few years…the Raptor Ridge 15k (but they say it’s actually 10.3…) this coming Saturday in San Pasqual Valley. It’s going to be hot and dirty and challenging but FUN! And I’m praying I won’t see any rattlesnakes. 🙂

Cooking as little as possible lately, in this heat! We’ve been living off of the crockpot, sandwiches, salads, and avocado toast to avoid turning on the oven. I made Chad these Crockpot Steak Fajitas and they were a big hit.

Thankful that we prioritize dating each other, even though we’re nearly 3 years married! Last week, it was a roller coaster and wine tasting. This past weekend, we tried out a new veggie restaurant in our neighborhood. Big or small, quality time means so much to me. These are the good ‘ol days.


BBQ pulled jackfruit sandwich for Chad – vegan, baby!
Portobello mushroom burger with garlic cashew aioli (who knew they made vegan aioli?!) and ginger, lime, and rosehips Boochkraft. YUM.


Thanks for catching up with me. Hope you have a wonderful week!
