Gah!!!! I’m super excited to be competing to be in the cover of Muscle & Fitness HERS magazine!!!!

In life. In love. In business.

I love watching people succeed at things. There’s something about seeing someone earn something, achieve something, build something or improve something that lights me up, and makes me so happy!

It’s beautiful. And wonderful. There’s plenty of room for us all ❤️❤️

What’s your win this weekend? Or what achievement have you witnessed that needs to be celebrated?

We all have fear... the difference is some people just do it anyway.

That’s where success lives 🙌

These are some of the stories I’m told when I invite women who I KNOW would freakin fall in LOVE with this business... I know them well. These were ALSO some of MY OWN stories when I was first invited to this business. ⁣

⁣”This isn’t for me”
“I’m not like you.”⁣
“I’m not good at that.”⁣
“I’m not fit enough”⁣
“I don’t have the time.”⁣
“I can’t do what you do”⁣
“I’m not techy”⁣
“No one wants to hear my story”⁣

Or they just say no.

The walls we protect ourselves with only keep love + opportunities OUT. ⁣

What we think is protecting us, is actually limiting us. ⁣

💥𝘙𝘌𝘈𝘋 𝘛𝘏𝘈𝘛 𝘈𝘎𝘈𝘐𝘕. ⁣

Over the last 4 1/2 years I have witnessed so many beautiful transformations... physical, mental, emotional + financial (yup, FINANCIAL- I don’t think I really talk enough about the IMPACT this has had on my own life financially)

I said no 3 times before I had the courage to ask what this was all about. I also told them that I didn’t
think that this was for me.

Honestly I thought I was above it all. I also had friends and some family members tell me that this would never work. I didn’t understand it. They didn’t understand it. This potential. The long term residuals. The impact that this would have in the current situation we’re forced to live in today.

My question to you if you’re thinking about this and have some self limiting beliefs, is not ‘can I do this’? ..... its “WHAT IF YOU CAN?”

Remember this friends 👇🏼👇🏼

🔥You are wildly capable
🔥You are unique
🔥Your potential is limitless
🔥You control your destiny
🔥And you will never be judged by someone more successful than you are.

Have you received my invite yet?

I had to really control my portions last night, cause I could have seriously eaten the whole freakin thing in one sitting.

I’m most definitely a VOLUME EATER, and I although I’m a small framed woman, I can put away a lotta food.

I played around with some ingredients tonight, and ended up with this deliciousness!!!

MEAL PLANNING + MEAL PREPPING on a MONDAY NIGHT!

Quinoa + Black Bean + Toasted Pecans + Blueberries + Cilantro

5 Baggies to Freeze for my shakes- easy access!!
•1/3 banana
•1/2 cup blueberries
•4 slices zucchini
•1.5 cups baby spinach

Red Boston Lettuce + Red Leaf Lettuce cleaned + spun? And sliced up some carrots for snacks to go with my Turmeric hummus.

WHY MEAL PREP???? Because the relationship between looking ahead and successfully meeting ones goal is unf**king deniable.

When it comes to what you eat and HOW you eat, being prepared matters. For ALL goals. Whether that health + fitness, or being practice in your business. Trust me. Have nutritious healthy vibrant foods ready to FUEL you body and mind... you can do great things!

You get out what you put in. Period.

It’s also an incredible time saver!!

START SMALL- plan ahead just a few healthy snacks. Maybe plan for one or two days to start.

STOCK UP ON ESSENTIALS- invest in some good glass containers (when you can see your food, you’re more opt to eat it!!) mixing bowls, cutting board, good set of knives, blender, slow cooker...

PICK A DAY TO MEAL PREP- I usually do mine on Sunday evenings, or Mondays. Dedicate 2 hours (trust me, it goes faster once you do it more often!) it just has to work for YOU!

COME UP WITH EASY MEALS TO PREP- if you’re not COMMITED to a full on prep, start simple! Focus on no-fuss combos like quinoa, brown rice roasted veggies, chick peas, maybe some lentils, clean and spin salads, chop carrots + celery!

PREP STAPLES TO USE LATER- make soups, sauces, freeze baggies for shakes!

Include some no-cook staples too! Nuts + seeds, fresh fruit, make overnight oats. Anything that can help you save time!

What day do you meal prep? And if you don’t, do you need some help organizing?

HERE IT IS!!

Ok. Here’s THE LOW DOWN. By far... one of my best recipes EVER!

*take note to double/triple the batch the TACO SEASONING for future use!

*****SAVE + SHARE****

Vegan King Oyster Mushroom Tacos 🌮 w/ Avocado Cilantro Lime + Jalapeño Guacamole

INGREDIENTS:

King Oyster Mushrooms
•1 red pepper, sliced
•1 green pepper, sliced
•1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
•10 baby tomatoes, halved
•1/2 cup cooked black beans
•juice of 1 lime
•juice of 1 orange
•2 garlic cloves, minced
•1 jalapeño, chopped
•1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
•1tbsp olive oil
•1 tbsp maple syrup
•1/3 cup taco mix
•vegan sour cream
•daiya shredded cheese

TACO SEASONING MIX:
•1 tbsp chili powder
•1/4 tsp garlic powder
•1/4 tsp onion powder
•1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
•1/4 tsp dried oregano
•1/2 paprika
•1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
•1 tsp sea salt
•1 tsp black pepper

KICKASS GUACAMOLE 🥑
In a medium bowl smash together 2 ripe avocados, but leave some nice chunks in there too! Mix in chopped jalapeños, juice of 1 lime, baby tomatoes, and 1/2 cup chopped cilantro. Add garlic.
Sea Salt + Pepper.
Mix together and set aside, or refrigerate for an hour before serving

LETS MAKE IT!
1. Preheat oven to 400F
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, orange juice, Worcestershire sauce, taco spice seasoning mix
2. Prepare the mushrooms. Slice the caps off (but don't disgard!) Then using a fork pull downward and shred them to mimic shredded meat. You can also use your fingers, pinch the stem to shred-some thick, some thinner
3. Transfer to the bowl and mix until every little piece of mushroom is well coated.
4. Arrange on a large baking sheet in a single layer, spreading them out as much as you can
6. Bake for 35-40 minutes, taking the pan out at 15 minutes to stir thoroughly. The mushrooms are ready when they are just a bit crispy on the outside, and still have a chewy texture, and have retained some of the moisture from the seasoning mix
7. Smash the black beans in a small bowl and add 1 tsp of taco mix, if the consistency is too thick, add a bit of water or lime juice.
8. Sauté sliced peppers in veg broth or a 1 tsp olive oil and a bit of water.

LETS WRAP IT + EAT IT!!

ENJOY ❤️

What kind of life, relationship, family, world might have I created if I’d been braver?

How could I, Christine, have shown up braver, more courageous in this life and on this day?

Bravery + Courage looks and feels different or everyone.

Bravery shows up our in how front line workers have exhaustedly worked to serve. It shows up in ALL communities, and the leaders that step up to calm amidst these storms and wildfires. It shows up in how we use our voice and words and platforms to promote awareness with unfathomable depths and layers of injustices in this world.... and that continue to learn and unlearn. The parents who have juggled work + homeschool + running their home, and leaving their own self care aside-for now....

Courage are kids who have had to shift gears over and over again, take cues from their peers and maybe through the influence of social media + the news. Teachers who’ve had to face a full day of constant screen time and with a whole new level of patience in teaching, and in their own learnings.

Small business owners who’ve taken a beating and continue to rise and fall. And rise again.

I see you.

As I watch and inhale all the creations and destructions of the this new world... I ask myself.

How can I show up with more bravery and courage?

Curiosity takes bravery.
Asking tough questions takes bravery.
Having hard conversations takes bravery.
Showing up takes bravery.

Getting quiet takes courage.
Self-care and self live takes courage.
Fighting + slaying addictions takes courage.
Asking and receiving help take enormous amounts courage + trust.

I ask myself again and again.

How will, I, Christine Marie Fortier show up more bravely and more courageously today?

I will speak for those who cannot. I will raise awareness and leave this planet for our future generations. I will continue to bring more light + live and truths to living a more conscious mindful life. I will be a light along the paths of others. I will walk alongside you as you find your way.

I need to be brave, now more than ever.

How will you choose courage and bravery today?

“You may (or may not) be shocked by how anti-huma? Racist snd spirit crushing Canada’s “Indian Act” was. It was created in 1876 with the expressed intention of stripping Indigenous Peoples of their culture.

It forces First Nations children to leave their families to attend residential schools (prisons, really) and made it ILLIGAL for Indigenous People to practice their religious ceremonies they could not even sing their own prayers.”





These children would have been Elders in the Indigenous community. Those who hold traditions, language, culture and stories.

Genocide is not just the murder of these innocent children. It is also the erasure of their possible legacy. @ Hamilton, Ontario
