As everyone knows, your brain cannot function without food, particularly without healthy food. When studying, your mind is on overload and it can be stressful. Studying can last from five minutes to six hours, but keeping your brain energized is key.

I have composed a list of some of my favorite snacks along with some others. All of these are vegan friendly but are great for anyone!

-tea (any calming tea is good, also tea that is used for headaches can help because i get headaches when i work for too long) (my favorite teas are mint, fruit teas, green tea with citrus, cinnamon/vanilla) im not sure exactly what they are called but my therapist always puts different kinds of powders in my tea that have antioxidants or vitamins and theyre like super foods. you can get tons of different ones and you cant really taste them but they can add some extra umph to your health.

-smoothies (one of my favorites)
•1/2 cup black berries
•1/2 cup raspberries
•4-8 strawberries
•two (preferably frozen) bananas
•handful of spinach
•ice

-apples with peanut/almond butter

-a fruit burrito (i accidentally made this when there was no food in the house and ive loved it ever since)
•whole wheat tortilla
•butter (i used vegan butter)
•fruits of choice (i use strawberries/bananas)
•cinnamon/sugar
~spread the butter on the tortilla and heat it up to your liking.
~cut the fruit
~put the fruit in the middle of the tortilla so it fits when you roll it up
~sprinkle cinnamon/sugar and roll it up and youre good to go!

-sweet potato chips

-plantain chips (they taste like fries if you get good ones)

-veggie sandwich (you can get this at subway or make it at home and modify it to your liking)
•bread of choice
•tomatoes
•cucumbers
•lettuce
•spinach
•(at home i add avocado or black beans)
•oil

-nice cream (basically a frozen smoothie haha)
•frozen fruit of choice
•bananas (mostly the base but not mandatory)
•anything you want to add in flavor wise such as mint extract, vanilla extract, or cacao powder
~literally just blend it and it should be fully blended but a thicker, cold consistency
~if it is not thick enough blend in some ice or freeze it to your desired texture

-blue corn chips

-granola (obviously)

-fruit (if youre lazy like me)

-spinach salad
•spinach
•toppings of choice (strawberries/pine nuts for me)
•balsamic vinaigrette

-peanut butter/avocado sandwich (its amazing i swear)
•peanut/almond butter
•avocado
•cinnamon
•whole grain bread
~mash up the avocado until it is a creamy consistency
~mix in cinnamon
~spread peanut butter on both slices of bread
~spread the avocado/cinnamon mix on one side and enjoy!

-juice (if you have your own juicer)
•spinach or kale
•apple juice
•blackberries
•raspberries
•blueberries
~make it to your liking but that is my favorite combination of fruits in juice

-Silk Very Vanilla or Chocolate soy milk cartons (little 8oz ones that come in a pack but fill you up if you are just a little hungry or in a hurry and have TONS of calcium and protein) (you can get almond ones too)

-pretzels & peanut butter

-oats/oatmeal with fruit and cinnamon

-quinoa dishes (you can do anything with quinoa/rice/couscous and they are very good for you and fill you up) i personally add vegetable oil with curry and peppers

-Outshine fruit popsicles. made with real fruit juice and are wayyy healthier than other frozen treats (lemon is my favorite)

-trail mix
•any dried fruits/nuts/toppings your little studying heart desires

-SMOOTHIE KING. IF YOURE LAZY GET SOME SMOOTHIE KING.

-ABC company cookies (you can get them at Whole Foods or Smoothie King, theyre huge cookies that are good for you and taste amazing)

AND OF COURSE JUST BECAUSE IM FEELING PARTICULARLY NICE TODAY, treat yourself to an oreo or two.

Those are just some things I love eating and are somewhat healthy. Some of them require cooking, but others you can just pull out of the fridge! Happy studying! Blessed be! xx.

INFP: It’s 3 am, pigeons do not have feelings STOP ASKING and GO TO SLEEP- horses do not have feelings either but let me tell you what, what they do have is the devil inside them

ENFP: You stay at people’s houses for several days just to pet their kitties and you eat all their jello that they were saving for a special occasion

Let's Go 21 Day Fix Grocery Shopping!

Okay, you got your 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack in the mail. You’ve gotten a chance to go through some of the material. Now it’s time to get ready to prep for your first week. That’s right, it’s time to go grocery shopping!

If you’re anything like me, you probably DREAD going to the grocery store. It’s so full of people and can feel like a zoo - especially around all the good produce! My tip, try to go on any day of the week except Sunday! Sunday afternoons and evenings are always PACKED at the grocery store. If you can go after work one day or even during the day on Saturday you will have better luck zipping in and zipping out! :)

Here’s what a typical grocery lists might look like for me when I go shopping. Depending on what I make each week, this cart of items can last me 1-2 weeks, with some items possibly lasting a little longer!

I try to get to the grocery store every 1 - 1.5 weeks since items like my bananas usually need to be replenished every week. I usually only need to buy my proteins once every 2 weeks because those tend to last me longer. On a bigger grocery week I might spend closer to $60, on a smaller grocery week I will spend somewhere around $20 - $30. I will plan on posting some actual receipts and documentation of everything I purchased after my 1st shopping trip when I’m in my new apartment! :)

Hello!  I’m Cesar Reyes Pinguino!  You can all just call me Pengee.  Brian and I wanted to try again with making up something using avocados and black beans.  When Brian’s father heard that we planned on making tacos, though, he wanted some too.  Now Brian and I were under a bit of pressure to do really well!

Brian and I started by brushing two tilapia filets with lime juice and shaking on chili powder, black pepper, oregano, and cumin.  While baking the filets in the oven, we heated and stirred two cans’ worth of unsalted black beans in olive oil and cumin on a stovetop, sliced two avocados as thin as we could, and chopped up fresh cilantro.

When the filets were done baking, we cut them up into short strips.  For each whole-wheat tortillas, we first scooped the beans onto the tortillas then laid the avocados on the beans.  Now we laid on the pieces of tilapia then sprinkled on crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese.  Finally, we sprinkled cilantro on top before closing up each taco.  We made six tacos in total for us and Brian’s father.

Something came up so Brian’s father couldn’t come home until much later.  Unfortunately, when he did eat one of the tacos, he wasn’t very thrilled.  Did we do something wrong?  Will we have to try again later? Do these tacos still look good to you?

Whole wheat tortillas with kidney beans, zucchini, tomato, bell pepper, spring onion, carrot, Vegan tomato & basil cream cheese, avocado, sweet chili sauce and lettuce ♥

How To Eat Healthy While Living The Dorm Life

nahnah-loses-her-tahtahs asks… 

We’ve all heard about that dreaded “Freshmen 15,” and there’s nothing mythological about it. The biggest culprit of the first year weight gain is being forced to live in a dorm with relatively poor access to a kitchen, cooking supplies, pantry space or adequate funding. You typically can’t work full time (since, you know, you’re taking on 6 classes of gen-ed requirements and reliving high school all over again), so you’re stuck on whatever stipend the school or your parents can provide. 

Fear not! It is actually possible to come out of your freshmen year looking fit and fabulous and feeling like a million bucks. Impossibility is the champion of innovation.

Here’s a list of healthy food staples and preparation ideas for the microwave chef:

Proteins

Unfortunately, most of the affordable stuff needs to be cooked on a grill, oven or stove, but there are some ways around it if you can stretch your dollars around.

  • Tuna - Canned tuna lasts forever, doesn’t require fridge space, and is packed with lean protein. You make a poor-man’s Salad Nicoise, mix it with hummus or olive oil and vinegar for a tuna wrap, or just eat it plain if you dig the taste.
  • Salmon - Did you know salmon comes canned too? A little pricer than it’s tuna cousin, but perfect for laying on a beg of spinach leaves with some balsamic vinegar.
  • Beans - You’ve got plenty of choices here. Black beans, garbanzo beans, white beans… they all go great in a salad, or you can microwave them together with some minute-rice for a  quick and filling Rice & Beans dinner.
  • Eggs - If you can’t afford the chicken, you can at least buy his eggs. Eggs are amazing. Did you know that you cook them in a microwave, too? Seriously, Buzzfeed lists 12 different ways to nuke them, so can have an omelet for breakfast every single day. 
  • Greek Yogurt - Opt for the plain yogurt or the kind that’s only sweetened with honey. Read the ingredients. A lot of the popular varieties are packed with sugar and high fructose corn syrup that you want to avoid.
  • Chicken Breast - You can buy it pre-grilled for a quick meal that just needs to be reheated, or even hit the deli and get some sliced chicken breast meat for your wrap or sammy. Deli meat is quick, 
  • Peanut Butter - PB is amazing on everything. On toast, on celery, on carrots, on a spoon. Just opt for the natural variety without all the added sugar. Read the ingredients. They should be: peanuts, salt. That’s all.

Vegetables

Veggies make great snacks and side dishes alike. 

  • Steam Bags - Pick up a box and you can steam anything in a microwave to go alongside your protein. 
  • Spinach leaves - Spinach is perfect for a salad, to fill out a wrap, or even steamed!
  • Fresh Celery, Carrots, Cherry Tomatoes, Baby Sweet Peppers, Bell Peppers, Broccoli, Cauliflower - There are so many things you can do with these veggies! Chop them up raw and make yourself a bunch of to-go snack bags for class. Add them to a salad or a wrap. Steam carrots, peppers or broccoli to accompany a hot dish. Also, celery and carrots are amazing when dipped in PB. These things obviously don’t keep forever, so make sure you only buy what you’ll use in the next few days.
  • Salsa - It’s so perfect, it works for everything. You can add it to chicken and make a taco, you can add it to scrambled eggs and have a breakfast burrito, you can use it as dressing for a salad, or you can spice up a veggie wrap.
  • Sweet Potatoes - It might take a good 15 minutes, but you can microwave a sweet potato and pretend it’s baked. Just make sure you poke holes in it first. Please.
  • Canned Veggies - I’m only a fan of corn or peas in the canned veggie department, but if you fancy any others then go ahead and grab them up. Just make sure you check the ingredients list and make sure nothing shady is hiding in the can.

Fruits

  • Fresh Fruit - Go nuts. You like apples? Bananas? Oranges? Grapes? Strawberries? Fruit is awesome and you should eat it all. Opt for whatever is on sale and in season when you go shopping to save a few bucks. Off-season fruit can get a bit pricey.
  • Canned Fruit - Please, please, please read the ingredients. Do not get any fruit that its packaged in sugar syrups. Only purchase canned fruit that is packaged in water.
  • Raisins - They are practically the only dried fruit that hasn’t been rolled around in sugar. Raisins are great as a snack, in a salad, or eveb in your morning oatmeal.
  • Avocado - The king of healthy fats! Adding avocado to anything will make you 100% more full and keep you satisfied for hours.

Carbs

  • Rice - You can cook minute-rice in a microwave, and its a great carb boost after an intense workout session.
  • Oatmeal - The breakfast of champions. Get yourself a box of plain, rolled or steel-cut oats. Read the ingredients! If there is anything more than “oats” listed, you should find a better brand. Oats can be microwaved with water, and you can add a sweetener like maple syrup, honey or fresh chopped fruit & raisins. My favorite way to prepare oatmeal is mixed with PB and maple syrup. You’ll be full forever.
  • Granola - Again, look at the ingredients. Granola can often come with a big price tag, but if you find it when it’s on sale, score! Try to opt for a brand that doesn’t list “sugar” as the second ingredient. I opt for the brands that sweeten granola naturally with maple syrup or honey.
  • Wraps - Sometimes a salad just is not convenient enough. Pick up some whole-wheat, whole-grain tortillas to wrap that up salad and make it to-go.

Beverages

  • Water. Unsweetened iced or hot tea. 
  • Listen, I know you’re a college student and you need a lot of caffeine in your life. If you’re going to buy energy drinks, at least opt for the sugar-free, no-carb varieties. Just remember, they’re terrible for you. Coffee and tea can be your friend.

Other Stuff

  • Become a Slow-Cooker Maestro - I don’t know if you’re particular school will actually allow a crockpot on campus, but if they do, you’ve just opened up a world of possibilities.
  • Approach the Cafeteria with Caution - If you’ve got a loaded meal card, then you’re going to need to be extra careful when prowling the school cafeteria. Stay away from anything fried. Ask the chef how the grilled foods are prepared (so often they are bathed in butter beforehand). Stick with a protein + veggie formula and you’ll be golden. Don’t even look at the greasy hamburgers, hot dogs and fries.
  • Don’t Forget The Condiments and Spices - Spices make food taste good. Salt, Pepper, Cinnamon and Garlic are a good start. Balsamic Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil are perfect dressings for wraps and salads.

Good luck on your first college food shopping adventure!  Send me pics of your healthy carts and baskets, and I’ll share them on the blog.

Definitely Be That Guy:

Своё реальное имя мне тут называть и правда не хочется, но могу сразу сказать, что “Jass” никакого отношения к нему не имеет и происходит оно от имени моего первого ролевого персонажа. Так что, сорри, догадка очень мимо)

Uh… To quote Wikipedia: “A taco is a traditional Mexican dish composed of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling.” ???

anonymous asked:

What is in your refrigerator/freezer right now? :)

Hmmmmmm let’s see:

Refrigerator: Babybel Gouda and white cheddar cheese, peanut butter, apples, chicken breast that is thawing, eggs, liquid egg whites, potatoes, white wine, beer, butter, tomato sauce, limes, salsa, guacamole, baby carrots, tortillas, whole wheat bread, almond milk, condiments

Freezer: Steam bags of vegetables, chicken breast, ground turkey, frozen berries, Halo Top, rice

the cheese in quesadillas in optional. i like to sub mine with a nice avocado paste to give it a nice spicy kick. i don’t put meat in it either, i feel it ruins the purity of the quesadilla experience. 

i prefer using whole wheat bread over tortillas as well. tortillas arent healthy at all. 

I’ve lost seven pounds in the last week on a plant-based diet. And unlike on the keto or paleo diets, I am not clogging my arteries in the process. I am not starving myself. If anything, I am eating more often than I did before, but healthy foods like whole wheat pasta and tortillas, potatoes, romaine lettuce, etc. This is not for short-term weight loss, but instead for my long-term health.

BREAKFAST: MMMM GIANT BLACK BEAN TACO

[vegan]

Definitely a heavier breakfast than I normally have but woke up today and was staaarving. One whole wheat tortilla, refried black beans, brown rice, avocado, fresh tomatoes, and super spicy salsa. Safe to say I devoured it and wanted another one immediately after haha.
