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…
- Tell us a little bit about yourself – who you are and what you do.
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.
- What was the ‘uh ha’ moment that inspired you to get into health and wellbeing?
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.
- Talk us through a typical day in your life…
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 ).

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 ; ).
- Three foods you can’t live without?
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.
- What’s your go-to snack for those days on the run?
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!
- … And any last words of advice or tips for those starting out on their health journey?
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.
