My winter vacation (posting very late!)


Alright, how is everyone doing? It's been a while since I've posted again and for that I am sorry (if anyone even reads my blog...) At the end of January I went to Maui for my hot vacation this year! I went with my dad, aunts, uncles, and cousin.

Getting on that meal prep


Like I said in my previous post I've been focusing on eating more vegetables and now I'm focusing on eating enough non meat protein. I eat eggs, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, beans and rice, quinoa, and tofu as my main sources of protein. I was slacking a bit in the meal prepping department so I've been making sure to do that at least twice a week so I have healthy, nutritious food ready when I'm hungry.

Need my veggies


I've been sick for over a week... I missed four days of work last week and I'm left with a dry cough and some of that awesome phlegm that I cough up in the morning. I peeled myself off of the couch on Friday to get some groceries and much needed produce.

Baked omelet


I was inspired today to make omelet bites from this video but I ended up making a one pan ordeal. My niece was at my mom's today and I wanted to see her so I took some of the ingredients with me and stopped at the store for the rest of what I didn't have. My mom doesn't have a muffin pan though, soooo I compromised.

Non meat sources of protein


So I've been doing mostly vegetarian meals for over a month now. I really don't find it that hard because like I've previously stated I was never a serious carnivore but I do find it difficult to find things that don't have meat or meat products in it. This is why I'm not ready to switch 100% right now.

Roasted veggie wrap


I made these on Saturday and they are more amazing than I expected. I adapted my recipe from this one. I'm disappointed I forgot to buy wraps from Superstore but had to settle for the smaller ones the convenience store in my building sells.

Going (mostly) vegetarian



Hello everyone, I've been pretty quiet on here again because I've been fairly busy with my social life and I pretty much eat the same thing most of the time. My cousin and her boyfriend went vegan last month and are loving it so I decided that I want to work my way to being vegan. It's too drastic of a change for me so I decided to try being vegetarian first.

Quinoa salad and hummus


I was at Costco yesterday to return some fuzzy (moldy) avocados and I wanted to pick up some hummus. On my way to the coolers I walked past their pre-mixed salads and saw this quinoa salad. I know it's more cost efficient to make it myself but I wanted something quick.

Incorporating more veggies


Even though I'm eating more carbs I've been aiming to eat more vegetables. It's amazing how good my body feels when I eat more veg. They're nutrient dense and it's hard to go over calories if you're eating mostly vegetables since they are low in calories.

More carbs :D



It feels like I write this every other post but really, my diet has been all over the place again. I failed to meal prep last week and I ate a ton of candy. I've been logging most of my food in My Fitness Pal but I end up stopping halfway through the day  because I know that it's going to be over.
