Lauryn Evarts is an online influencer & the creative director behind The Skinny Confidential. We absolutely love her down-to-earth approach to wellness and life in general – not to mention, her goal of connecting women from across the world and showcasing major ‘realness’ – making health and wellbeing achievable for every person. In her own words, ‘Stay in your own lane, manage stress properly and pay attention to your wellness’ – we couldn’t agree more! Read on to find out Lauryn’s Day on a Plate…
I’m Lauryn, founder of The Skinny Confidential, a lifestyle blog featuring a range of topics from health, to wellness, to beauty, style, & home decor. You’ll also find us discussing some pretty taboo subjects. Think camel toes, boob jobs, & botox. The Skinny Confidential is a community because honestly, the readers share some tips too! TSC started as a blog, but since then it’s grown into a book, YouTube channel, fitness eBook, & meal plan. Also, my fiance & I host a podcast called The Skinny Confidential HIM & HER on PodcastOne.
I was in college at San Diego State, bored as hell. There was a serious lack of healthy food options on campus. It inspired me to create a space for women to share their tips & tricks. A blog seemed like the perfect platform.
My day usually starts with a quick meditation, breakfast, lemon water, & then some coffee. Afterwards I like to workout, it always sets the tone of the day. For workouts, I follow TSC Bombshell Body Guide because it’s designed to targeted every little nook & cranny in your body. I also love weight training, interval training on the treadmill, yoga, & pilates. As far as food goes, I keep it simple.
For example yesterday, I started the day with TSC Detox Drink. Then had two scrambled eggs with 1/2 an avocado.
For lunch I made an open faced turkey sandwich. A few hours later I snacked on a handful of berries. I finished the day with salmon & TSC Spicy Brussels Sprouts (Recipe on TSC Bombshell Body Guide website for members ).
ummm, yes plz 🍍🌿 TSC WRINKLE BLASTER SMOOTHIE. filled with collagen, thx to @vitalproteins. recipe tutorial is on snapchat AND the blog. . …if you're not obsessed with collagen-everything, get on board. it plumps the skin while making it appear smoother & firmer, boosts the metabolism, prevents aging, ANDDD rids cellulite. so basically it's MAGIC 💅🏼 Jennifer Aniston swears by it too =) . #stayvital #vitalproteins #collagen #theskinnyconfidential
Definitely not slaving away in the kitchen for hours. To see exactly what I typically eat in a week, check out The Shredding for the Wedding 7 Day Meal Plan.
Another thing I do: walk everywhere!
Some of my favourite foods/drinks are: eggs, avocado, strawberries, chia seeds, grapefruit, kale, spinach, Greek yogurt, garbanzo beans, lentils, dark chocolate chips, peppermint tea, guacamole, salmon, & a hamburger wrapped in lettuce. The simpler the better.
I also love a glass or rose…or a skinny margarita ; ).
TSC Detox Drink is my go to every single morning. Definitely cannot live without it.
Avocado & eggs too! Love that combo. Protein x healthy fat. Add a little chile flake and lemon & I’m good to go.
As far as a guilty pleasure? Chips & salsa. YUM.
Anything quick, yummy, & energizing. I usually opt for a hardboiled egg, toast with almond butter or avocado, or sliced turkey with pesto or cheese inside. Lean protein or healthy fats are definitely the way to go!
Balance your diet like a checkbook. Try to do something active and MOVE every single day. Shoot for a minimum of 30 minutes of activity every day if possible. I try to break a sweat everyday.
Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time. My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.
With kindest regards Samantha
I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.
When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.
I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.
Hey Jessica! I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again
I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!
Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.
Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!
I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).
I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud
My fiancé bought your book and we have cooked some of your meals. Amazing! I love your outlook on a healthy lifestyle and your hints and tips with preparing tasty meals are fantastic. Thanks for reviving us to live a healthier lifestyle and get our bodies wedding ready.
I want to empower you to make good choices, every day. I want you to enhance your understanding of health and nutrition. I'm committed to making sure you live the best life. Because you deserve it. Are you ready to start feeling great?
Let me know your email address so I can send you an eBook '7 Days on my plate' - a little gift from me to you!
