We already take you inside of the morning and nightly routines of interesting women, and now we’re taking things a step further with our new Food Diary segment. We’ll be bringing you specific and detailed logs of what our featured guests eat on a daily basis, to hopefully inspire you to step out of your food comfort zone and try some of their suggestions. First up is a healthy eating entrepreneur with some fantastic recipes. Though you’ve likely seen her on The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise, Tenley Molzahn Leopold is no longer an eligible single–she’s recently married and about to head off on a dreamy Italian honeymoon. Before she goes, we asked the former bachelorette to share some of the healthy eating tips she’s picked up as the co-founder of lifestyle program The DIY Cleanse, a company dedicated to making clean eating simple and fun. As part of our new food diary series, the holistic nutrition health coach shares everything she eats on a typical day. Best of all? If you like what you see, you can work with Tenley directly to help meet your wellness goals.
What I eat: A breakfast bowl! (one of my staples). Big handfuls of arugula, then I drizzled a little olive oil & sprinkle Himalayan pink salt. Then I add roasted sweet potatoes (roasted in the oven after being massaged with avocado oil, pink salt, pepper, and rosemary). 2 Pieces of High Quality Bacon (yes, I eat bacon!) and topped with a few Avocado slices with a last little bit of Himalayan pink salt & pepper. Sometimes I drizzle a little organic Siracha for some heat.
The time I eat it: 7 A.M.
How I make it: My husband and I are loving starting our days together now that we’re living together! We share the role of making breakfast. I always roast sweet potatoes or other veggies ahead of time, so we already have those on hand. Taylor is on bacon duty and then reheats the sweet potatoes in the bacon grease (extra flavor and healthy fats). I’m in charge of getting the bowls ready with arugula and avocado.
What I eat: A Lofty Coffee- long black with homemade vanilla and a splash of homemade almond milk with 1tbsp of coconut oil and collagen!
The time I eat it: 9 A.M.
Where I get it: I got it from my favorite local coffee shop, Lofty Coffee in Encinitas
What I eat: Gluten-free avocado toast on Against The Grain Gourmet Vermont Country Rolls. I toast these (We don’t have gluten in our home, BUT I do have a specific side of the toaster for gluten-free bread only just in case!) For my avocado to top my toast, I mash up about 1/2 an avocado, a squeeze of lemon juice, some Himalayan pink salt, pepper, nutritional yeast and mash it all together and top my toast. I add a few HUGE handfuls of leafy greens (usually arugula) and then I add some organic deli turkey on top of that.
The time I eat it: 1:30 P.M.
What I eat: Siete Chips (grain-free cassava chips) dipped in majestic garlic jalapeño dip
The time I eat it: 2:30 P.M.— I don’t wait long after lunch. 😉
Where I get it: Both from my health food store, Jimbos!
What I eat: Yellow Curry with Chicken!
The time I eat it: 6:45 P.M.
How I make it: I make this in the crockpot. I created the recipe because Taylor and I LOVE yellow curry.
Workout from that day
Workout I do: I run 7 miles. My body is sore!
Time I do it: 8 A.M.

After years and years of being sick (from the day I was born), I’ve been working towards complete healing in my gut, but it also took a whole new lifestyle. My lifestyle upgrades have changed my life, so that’s why I’m so passionate about the programs I’ve created and being able to work and share with others, my clients and followers on social media!!! I’m also super excited for this next season of life and all it has to bring!
