The too small tortilla struggle right here, looks like I made too much stuffing. Oh well, eating the first half with a fork was almost as delicious as eating the other half wrapped up.

This is just quinoa, grilled peppers and onion, and black beans mixed with buffalo sauce on a bed of romaine wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla.

The real secret here is to keep quinoa (or rice, etc) cooked in a Tupperware in the fridge. I also keep cooked beans and cut up peppers in there so I can throw together burritos or salads really fast on a school night (law school is a real kick in the ass).

Protein from the beans and complex carbs to keep you energized and thinking clearly.

Okay so I’m really excited about this post, and I’m really excited about the week that’s going to follow. 

As some of you know, I’ve been struggling with dairy for like… ever. For the longest time I just assumed it was a lactose intolerance, but it seems like it could very well be an actual dairy allergy. 

Now, my mom has celiac disease. Not just gluten intolerance, but straight up celiac. Based on that, the doctor thinks it’s not entirely impossible that part of my problem stems from my high grain diet. (like… literally bread and pasta every single day.) I’ve gone gluten free before… lasted about two whole days. And I was vegetarian once for like, a week. (we went to Chipotle and that was all she wrote.) 

But college is starting soon. And things are still god awful for me. I have been going to bed between 9-10pm every night, and getting up between 5:30-6:30am every day, for an entire week. First thing when I wake up I’ve been taking Daenerys for a walk. For all intents and purposes, I should be feeling energized and healthy and what not. I mean, this is what the doctors prescribe, right? 

Yet I am still plagued by chronic headaches, intense and miserable fatigue, dizziness, an inability to concentrate, bloatedness, cramps, and other TMI digestive problems. 

In the States my doctor diagnosed me with grave’s disease, but the doctor here is convinced that it is a dietary problem, possibly an animal protein allergy. 

Now, my mom thinks the animal protein allergy is hogwash because it is exceptionally rare, but classes start soon and I am DESPERATE. Like, my classes are from 8-6 Mo-Fri. I have an hour and a half commute EACH way, AND I have a dog to take care of. (a really high energy one) There is no way I am going to survive if my body continues on like this. 

So, I’m going to go completely grain free and vegan for a week, and see how I feel. 

I’m going to document my progress, so if you’re really super bored at the idea, just blacklist the tag “lexie’s vegan adventure”. 

I should note I’m not doing this out of any moral opinion or anything like that… I simply want to figure out what is WRONG with my body, and do what it takes to take care of it so that I can be the best version of me. 

I looked around and already found some really interesting looking breakfast and lunch recipes. I’m sharing them on here for anyone else who is interested. 

Anyhoo. I’m pretty excited about this whole thing, and I REALLY hope it answers the questions I have about my health. 

Another afternoon well spent meal prepping :) x Dinner and lunch for two for the next 3 days:)

This is how we eat healthy, portion control and succeed when we have very little time

Health starts within you, your mind & body…. Nourish them properly!! If you’re going to snack mindlessly on something, it may just as well be something that’s good for you! So have a list of what you need grocery wise, make sure that your list is filled with fresh & nutritious goodness, AND STICK TO IT!!!

Tips to Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle

Good health is the best thing that one can hope to have since without good health, it is difficult to enjoy the doing all the things that your heart desires. With tight schedules and busy lives, it can be very difficult to find time to take care of ourselves and it’s easy to fall prey to various health related problems and unfortunately put on excess weight. However by being a little focused and following some healthy eating habits, we can lose those extra pounds.

By healthy eating we mean eating wisely and following some nutritious meals for weight loss. Dieting has never helped anyone in reducing weight since usually after the novelty wears off, overeating quickly follows. Instead of having to deal with that, eating wisely and in small meals/portions is a proven healthy way to lose weight quickly.

Now what does ‘eating wisely’ mean? It means eating a variety of foods that gives you necessary nutrients to stay healthy & fit and eliminating those that make you feel dull, stuffed, and lethargic. Here are some tips that if followed regularly will not only help you drop weight but also maintain that healthy wellness.

Have Frequent Meals

It is advised to eat frequently rather than having three large meals. It proves to be effective and helps controlling the habit of over-eating. Having some snacks in between the meals will help control your hunger and makes your digestive system function smoothly. Eating fruits, vegetables, or having a healthy soup frequently in small portions will help you control your appetite.

Have a Hearty Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important of all the meals as it is the first meal after long night’s rest. It’s important to have a healthy breakfast which consists of fiber, cereals, milk, fruits, grains, etc. You can add colorful fruits and vegetables to your nutrition plan to lose weight as they are tasty and full of vitamins & minerals.

Nutritious Lunch

Eating a balanced meal at lunch helps keep you energized at work. Therefore include a combination of carbohydrate rich food, proteins, dietary fats, vitamins & minerals along with a lot of water. Try to get in the habit of taking a 5-10 minute walk after eating to help digest the food.

Drink Water
