We all know that when we put energy into our cars, our homes, our lawns, our education, their value improves.
Why does society make that so hard to understand about ourselves?
We have our theories- billion dollar companies wanting Everyday we us to rely on their products to feel whole.
We just want you to rely on… you.
One of the biggest disparities we see are how painfully, sincerely and adamantly people converse about wanting to feel more self-worth.
But they are resistant, afraid and too busy to put energy into building their value.
How can we know to up the value of our belongings, we have to put energy into them- and not realize that the same holds true, for ourselves?
Our belief- forget the “things” that we invest into- nothing is more worthy than pouring energy into, than you.
And what our MOVE.rs have found who made the scary jump into trusting themselves enough to do this, is that when they feel whole, everything else around them seems to magically fall...
We have been so curious to know, what type of gut-friendly recipes do you want to see the most of... and you all answered!
Since we are pretty torn on chocolate sweets or fruity sweets, we figured why use the word "or" when we can use the word "and". Cue: mindset hack.
Scope out two of our favorite gut-friendly recipes- gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free, wheat free, egg free. Flavor-FULL.
Preheat oven to 350F. Combine all ingredients except chips in a food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Fold in chocolate chips then add to a bake safe dish or tin. Bake for 15-18 minutes, then let cool at...
You have asked. We are sharing.
How to shut that internal critical voice up:
1- Name it. Yes, really.
2- Acknowledge where it is coming from. This take a little bit of digging, but it’s so worth it. Think old narratives, limiting beliefs, messages we were sent growing up.
3- Don’t blame that place of origin. We all do the best we can, at any given moment.
4- Take responsibility for changing the voice. You have full control over it.
5- Rewrite the script. Step out of the low-vibes.
7- Get Support.
This isn’t a quick fix…. But it IS a life changing shift.
Ask our MOVE.rs.
We have watched more of them lose weight, gain confidence, get PR’s, find new jobs, leave relationships, start relationships, sign up for races, sign out of races, manifest goals, take risks and more. And while the community and accountability helped- we know it was helping them shut that inner voice up, that made it all happen.
A DECADE, of dreading being in a bathing suit and just WEEKS in our program this MOVE.r was in completely different shape.
“This is the first time in my life I’ve been on a beach and I am not wasting every single second of my day freaking out…… I’ll thank you both again and again until the end of the world.
Fad diets don’t work. They just don’t.
They DO serve a purpose- they generally have people making healthier choices and thinking about what they put into their bodies. BUT they don’t work, long term.
Digestion, nutrients in food, food combining… none of these are fads.
We see time and time again, similar results to this case….. Decade long struggles with counting all the things, trying to “burn off” food, manipulate the body or restrict intake.
In just weeks of our program, MOVE.rs are making life-long changes they didn’t even imagine could be possible… cue:...
Megahn Sandve was a health coach who was coaching women to have a healthy relationship with food, but behind closed doors, she was obsessively tracking and counting everything she ate.
Busy with clients, a podcast and building her career, she was stuck- and scared. Meghan says everything changed when she turned to MOVE. with Mooch&Mel.
From all of the damage done trying to track her food and restrict herself, Meghan now suffered from a range of symptoms of a dysfunctional gut, including; amenorrhea, thyroid issues, acne and fluctuating weight. She was drained mentally and physically and knew she wanted to show up more powerfully for herself and her clients, but didn’t know how to do so.
Meghan reversed the symptoms of her dysfunctional gut- something that even as a health coach, she had NO idea of the massive impact it makes in overall functioning. Her energy went up, she was in better control of her fitness and health. And beyond that- the...
Have you checked your alignment?
Translation: what you value with your words and seek to achieve in your goals vs. what you value with your energy; time, money, attention, thought, foods. Are they aligned?
Dr. John Demartini is a world leader in human behavior. One of his studies concludes that 90% - YES 90% of humans are not aligned with their values and the way they expend their energy.
We aren’t sure if he was inspired by the Phase One Alignment Check we created in the MOVE. Method (happy to share, John!), but when we recently stumbled across his value alignment check we got all weak-kneed and giddy.
It’s a statics based approach to visualizing where you are putting your energy. Basically he takes your energy output and measures it out to see if you are aligned with what you believe you value. He’s helped millions of people, world-wide, figure out where their gaps are.
We spend a LOT of time with our MOVE.rs on alignment. Because once we are aligned,...

We don’t believe in failures.
Feedback > failures.
Every behavior- it’s asserting a need.
If the way a behavior manifests doesn’t serve you well… cue: regret, guilt, shame, worry, fear, retreat…. It’s feedback that you have a REAL need, but the route you took to meet it, doesn’t align with who you are or what you want.
Sometimes we let the need speak so loudly, we pursue it at the most accessible (and not typically the most productive) path.
The need is real- if we don’t listen to it, it’s going to keep presenting…. over… and over…. and over. The path is flexible. If one didn’t work so well to meet our need, we get to be in the driver’s seat to pick another.
The hardest part? We beat the heck out of ourselves when a “mistake” or “failure” presents that we can’t hear the learning. It takes a lot of courage and strength to out-muscle the...

Grill season is upon us!
3 small zucchini (about 1/2 pound each), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon avocado oil
Freshly ground black pepper
3 cups baby spinach
1/3 cup basil leaves
Homemade or premade roasted red peppers
2-3 large portobellos
1 container of Trader Joe’s vegan pesto (or homemade)
Preheat grill or grill pan to medium.
Brush both side of the sliced zucchini with avocado oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until tender (about 4 minutes per side). You can prepare the zucchini a day ahead and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Put pesto, raw spinach, basil, roasted peppers and/or roasted portobellos on zucchini. Roll up and place seam side down on a platter. You can use a toothpick to hold together if they’re stubborn (like mooch). Repeat, and repeat, and repeat. You can make these up to a day in advance; store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Grill when ready!
