  • The most gorgeous display of nature’s medicine! An easy way to reduce your toxic exposure to pesticides and insecticides is to buy organic fruits and veggies when possible. Its expensive to buy everythingggg organic so I swear by prioritizing organic for produce on the dirty dozen list from the @environmentalworkinggroup. Checkout their list of produce with the most pesticides. Also note that produce stickers that have a five digit number that starts with #9 will always mean its organic! A four-digit code that starts with #3 or #4 means it’s conventionally grown. Now for the important question...what’s your favorite vegetable?! #locallygrown #erewhon #fruit #veggie #buddha #nourish #eatyourveggies #functionalnutrition
  • We only get one life so fill it with tons of love and inspiration. This weekend at Revitalize reminded me to connect more, need less, be grateful, eat well, enjoy nature, laugh a lot, and dare to dream big. Also to occasionally enjoy @simplemills soft baked gluten-free cookies because they are 😍🙉❤️ and #balance!! Thank you to the @mindbodygreen team & community for another insanely inspiring and fun weekend! #mbgrevitalize #revitalize #mindbodygreen #mindbodygram #youweall
  • Just slamming tacos at one of the best wellness events of the year! Photo steal from @beachlifeorganic! Taco bar from @sietefoods and @mindbodygreen! Oh and in case you missed it...Siete Foods officially makes dairy-free queso! Say what?!? Happy Friday! #noshame #dreamcometrue #messytacos #tacosarelife #sietefoods #revitalize2018 #mindbodygreen
  • Humans were not designed to eat 24 hours a day. Practicing intermittent fasting for at least 12 hours overnight promotes dna repair and induces autophagy which is when the body recycles damaged mitochondria. I’m sad to be leaving LA but I’m super excited to head to Arizona this morning for the @mindbodygreen Revitalize Conference and talk about intermittent fasting, sleep and the new science on morning routines with @drjkahn! And I can’t wait to see all of my favorite wellness people! Obviously lots of excitement in this post! Wishing you all an awesome Friday! #revitalize #mbg #mindbodygreen #intermittentfasting
  • The most quality lunch at the most quality restaurant, @true_food_kitchen! Grass-fed steak salad for days via @ayeletmenashe! Never leavinggg! 🥦😍✌️ #truefoodkitchen #grassfed #salad #functionalnutrition
  • Meditating with @megmonahan for the 2nd time this week at Unplugged! They actually have an entire studio setup just for meditation! It’s awesome. Megan taught me something so valuable during her meditation at the Feel Good Summit...develop a relationship with your future self. For me that meant not eating my only RXBar yesterday morning because I knew that future Brigid would really want it way more later in the afternoon when she was actually hungry! It can be applied when tempted with food, not filling your gas, skipping a workout or meal prep, drinking too much alcohol, etc. It’s pretty straightforward...become more conscious of your future self and try not to screw him/her over! #selflove #meditation #unplugged #feelgood2018
  • Don’t get too excited but this Creamy Fennel Kale Chicken recipe is up on beingbrigid.com! If you struggle to get enough veggies in your diet, this is a tasty way that’s even approved by my younger brother who always excuses himself from the table b/c he’s “too full” for salad and veggies! Don’t miss out on those leafy greens like kale which are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin K, calcium, and folate! YUM! #eatyourgreens #veggies #paleo #glutenfree #dairyfree
  • Team Hyman at the @feelgoodsummit! #feelgood2018 #feelgoodsummit
  • ‘Do more of what makes you happy’—I saw this sign when we went white water rafting last week and I can’t get it out of my head so I thought I’d share it with you! Do more of what makes you HAPPY! And surround yourself with people who make your heart burst with happiness! Its so essential for optimal health! It’s been a whirlwind of travel in the last 12 hours but after a happy and beautiful trip to Iceland with my bf, I’m headed to LA for Dr Hymans Feel Good Summit to surround myself with more happiness! Follow the excitement and amazing lineup of speakers @feelgoodsummit! Avocado T from nutrition powerhouse @nutritionstripped! HAPPY Friday! 🥑 ❤️ 🇮🇸💃🏻 #feelgoodfriday #happy #guidetoiceland #feelgoodsummit #avocadolove
  • Gluten-free bowls: Mexican & Mediterranean from Glo Vegan @gloiceland in Reykjavik. We found this gem of a restaurant (thanks to @juliefoucher) that caters to gluten-free and vegan diets! About 13 years ago when I cut gluten I could hardly eat out at restaurants in my hometown. I love that today there’s so many more options for everyone with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity that you can travel internationally to a non-English speaking country and still have places to eat! You have to do a little research but the options do exist! Also this is one of three meals that we ate out at a restaurant in 10 days of traveling bc food at restaurants in Iceland is absurdly expensive! If you’re ballin’ on a budget like we are then you’ll definitely want to pack as much food as possible, stop at grocery stores along the way and then stock up on hard boiled eggs and skyr yogurt for when you’re on the countryside with no grocery stores! #iceland #guidetoiceland #glovegan #plantbased #glutenfree #glutenfreefood #glutenfreevegan #glutenfreetravel
  • Exploring the countryside and whitewater rafting. It’s crazy...glacier water is actually extremely cold! 😂 #Iceland #travelgram #guidetoiceland
  • Travel essentials: individual nut butter packets! I always pack these for a go-to easy source of healthy fats to keep blood sugar levels stable and decrease hunger hormones. The key is squeezing out every last drop! Two of my favorites: @eatnuttzo with a blend of 7 nuts & seeds and @artisanaorganics organic coconut butter! Who else is obsessed?! #icelandsnacks #travelgram #healthytravel #travelsnacks #functionalnutrition #organicaf #iceland #guidetoiceland #nutbutter
