can you say healthy but yummy

anonymous asked:

as an actress, what are some of your go-to, fast, healthy meals?

Oooo fun question! First, let me preface this by saying that I don’t eat very much in a single sitting, and eat small meals all day. So if you see something and think, girl that’s not a meal!! … yeah, I can’t eat much at a time without getting full, so it’s more like hearty snacks all day. I’m also a vegetarian, so you’ll see a distinct lack of meat here.

1. Hummus, warm pita, carrots, and whatever other veggies I have on hand. This was my dinner tonight and ohhhh it’s so yummy.

2. Apples and cheese. Such a delicious combo! Especially fresh mozzarella.

3. Steel cut oatmeal with whatever fixings I have–pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, maple syrup, chia seeds, peanut butter. And steel cut oats is actually something that I feel reheat really well! So make a bunch and then have it for breakfast for about a week!

4. Yogurt and fruit and granola. I love Greek yogurt, add a little honey, granola, berries, whatever I have on hand. I freeze berries often and they work great defrosted and popped into some yogurt in the morning! Good way to keep from wasting fruit.

Carrot Cake Bites Recipe

Makes 12–14

Sweet treats don’t necessarily have to be full of processed sugar. The natural sugars found in dates and raisins satisfy those cravings just as well as any chocolate bar or slice of fat-laden cake—but that’s not to say you can’t or shouldn’t have the occasional piece. I’m increasingly conscious of how much cake I consume (welcome to your thirties!) and so I’ve taken inspiration from one of my all-time favorite recipes and given it a somewhat healthy twist by forming it into every seasoned vegan’s standby sweet, the incomparable (but perhaps not so appetizingly named) “raw ball.” And as an added bonus, these bite-sized treats don’t even require any cooking—just process, roll, chill, and eat… now that’s better than messing around with batter any day. 

1 small carrot, grated
1 cup medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
2 1/4 cups pecans
1/3 cup raisins
Grated zest of 1 clementine or orange
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
½ cup shredded coconut

Squeeze out any excess liquid from the grated carrot.

Place all the ingredients, apart from the coconut, into a food processor and process until the mixture comes together in a large clump, scraping down the sides of the bowl a couple of times, if necessary.

Line a plate or baking sheet with parchment paper.

Take a teaspoon of the mixture, roll into a ball, and place on the parchment paper. Repeat to make 12–14 golfball-sized spheres in total.

Put the shredded coconut into a bowl and roll each ball in the coconut to coat. Place the balls on the lined plate and refrigerate overnight.

Once you get this you have to say five things you like about yourself, publicly, and send it to 10 of your favorite followers (non-negotiable). SPREAD POSITIVITY! :)

Aww thanks @kiraiki! (or just “Ki”, as I think of you in my head ahaha)

Mmm let’s see…

-I can cook. Not, like, super well, but well enough that I can feed myself some yummy, healthy food!

-when I’m in the right mental space, I can write a LOT in one day, for many days in a row

-I’m good at planning things out! Like travel and events and things ^_^

-I feel like I’m a fairly open-minded, non-judgmental person. I try to see multiple sides of the same issue and not judge people negatively

-Ummm….I can eat a LOT of dessert. Does that count as a positive?? Well, it DOES NOW, ehehe


If you don’t like a thick woman, you can sit the fuck down and let a real man stand up. 😘😎

I want a body like Selena Quintanilla-Perez, she’s my inspiration…💃💋

Post from Instagram :
Taking myself out for brekky on a Monday 😊 didn’t bring breakfast on the go today so I’m having an acai bowl while I sit next to the heater so I don’t freeze ☃ I also have some news!!! SO, I’m changing my Instagram. I’m going to change it to a recipe based Instagram for now! Instead of releasing my ebook I’m just going to slowly put out the recipes on this Instagram for you all to use and also photos of yummy meals I go out for! I’ve also changed my Mindset about my food lifestyle recently which is why I haven’t been uploading a whole lot. I love eating healthy and the way it makes me feel. But I also love burgers and lollies. I used to be one of those people who would say ‘look I can eat burgers and ice cream and wake up in the morning with abs still’ but really. Who cares. It shouldn’t be about that. You should be Able to eat whatever you want and not have to justify or prove anything to anyone. Life shouldn’t be about fitting thing into your macros or having dedicated cheat meals and saying no to going out for ice cream because it’s not cheat time yet. Fair fair, if you are trying to lose weight, have a Comp coming up, have fitness goals you’re looking to achieve ASAP, then yeah being strict is what you have to do to get there. But me. I don’t have any major goals, I am happy with where I’m at. Yeah I could be leaner and fitter but I’m not in any rush. I’m just exercising as I please, eating as I please and enjoying life with friends and family. I do eat 80% healthy but I also go out for ice cream, burgers and eat lollies regularly too. Because I can. It’s my choice. Maybe in future I’ll want to be a little stricter, who knows ? Do whatever the hell you want. If you want to lose weight, cool. If you want to gain muscle, go for it! If you want to run a marathon, work towards it! If you’re happy where you are, then keep doing what you’re doing. Everyone has different ways of reaching their goals and living there life. That’s why I’m changing this to a recipe Instagram and maybe a more educational fitness/health Instagram to help people with whatever journey they’re on. if you want to still hear my updates/what I do+eat, follow my tumblr!

Want to eat more skin-loving fruit and veg in 2015? Read on!

Your Skin Loves Fruit & Veg

Looking back at December, it’s pretty safe to say our diets weren’t totally ideal – it’s a given that we’ll indulge a little more around Christmas time. But January is well and truly here, and there’s no better time to focus on fuelling our bodies with yummy, healthy, skin-loving foods!

We heart fruits and vegetables – they’re great for our skin, and for our bodies too. Once you get into the habit of packing your meals and snacks full of nutrients, it can become second nature. Your skin will thank you for it! We love to include fruit with meals, particularly breakfast and lunch (bananas, apples, berries and oranges are some of our current favourites!) and there are unlimited possibilities for filling your dinners full of veggies too!

Why not make a New Year’s Resolution to eat your way to glowing skin with plenty of fruit and veg?
