Healthy On-the-Go Lunch Idea

Food + Travel, Health + Fitness, Uncategorized

I am always on the go.

Having quick, dishes-free lunches is essential. I am also in college and can’t afford going out to eat everyday (even though sometimes I do..oops).

So for me, this quick, inexpensive, and healthy lunch is a life saver.

I will call it: The Greek Spinach Wrap (only because there is tzatziki in it lol)

So what are the ingredients?

  • spinach wrap
  • tzatziki sauce
  • chicken or turkey
  • choice of lettuce
  • banana peppers
  • avocados (optional)
  • cucumber

Why do I love it?

First of all, it tastes amazing with like no effort what so ever.

Did I mention no dishes? (I wrap it in tin foil)

It’s pretty healthy

Easy to make

Not a basic sandwich

You can switch up the ingredients and it will most likely still taste bomb

It’s not that messy or loud to chew (very important because I usually eat in class- yes I’m that person)

Please try and let me know what you think 🙂

Thanks for reading, have a happy and healthy Tuesday!

Changing Your Relationship with Food

Advice + Inspiration, Food + Travel, Health + Fitness, Uncategorized

What’s the perfect diet?

What can and can’t you eat?

How many calories are in that?

Our relationship with food has become exhausting. We constantly beat ourselves up for not being perfect and punish ourselves as a result.

I’m not an expert on the perfect diet, by any means, but I have found a few people who have inspired me to think about food in a new way:

The first is Michael Pollan.

I discovered him on the Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations podcast.

The episode is “Conscious Eating” 

Michael Pollan’s philosophy is that, “three times a day we get to express our values through food.” He believes that we have let convenient foods take over our diets and that this is making us unhealthy. He talks about the power of cooking your own food and knowing exactly what you put into your body.

If you don’t have the podcast app, here’s the audio from it

The second is Mel Wells.

I discovered her on the Earn Your Happy podcast.

The episode is “231: How Healing Your Relationship with FOOD Can Help You LIVE A FULFILLED LIFE” 

Mel’s philosophy is that releasing our need for control around food is the key to having a better life. She emphasizes the importance of listening to your body, letting go of strict rules, and understanding that sometimes our cravings are not actually for the food itself but for some kind of change in our lives.

I summarized her ideas quite a bit, but the podcast I shared with you will do a good job of filling in the gaps and make more sense of the philosophy.

Highly recommend her video as well-
