One class stands between me & my last LDOC of fall semester (last day of class, that is).
As I said before, this year is full of lots of lasts… But with the closing doors, there are many more being opened.
As you plunge into the dreaded finals week, don’t neglect yourself! It’s so easy to let stress consume you & let the more important things, such as sleep, eating, + exercise, fall to the wayside.
Here is your friendly reminder to not forget to do the little things!
There’s nothing like a big bowl of hot soup on a cold day, that’s for sure.
+ this one is PERFECT, for a light, protein-packed, meal.
The holiday season is busy busy busy, but this recipe is SO simple for even your busiest of days.
Simply throw all the ingredients, let it simmer, & enjoy.
It’s sure to warm your heart + fill your belly.
+ even the most picky eater, wouldn’t even be able to tell…
But hey, before you’re quick to judge… just look at those delish chunks of chocolate.
And just like that… it’s November.
Oh my, where did the year go?! It’s always crazy to me how the year starts out, seeming daunting, yet full of possibility. Then, before we know it, it’s winding down & those new year’s resolutions that we once made are loooong gone (what resolutions did I even make…?)
Life has been busy, as I’m sure it has been for you too. Perhaps you follow along on my Instagram (@oomyquad), where I have been a
little, okay a lot more active with posting.
In between this busy thing called like, I’ve been cooking, schooling, practicing a little bit of tennis, all while trying to hold onto these precious last moments of my senior year of college (OK WHAT!?). It feels like there are so many lasts… last first day of school (ever? Nope… hopefully not yet). Last time registering for classes. Last fall tennis season. Last college football game (as a student). It feels like everything is a last. (except I will appreciate that last exam… but there’s no rushing that).
But hey… the whole world is waiting for me to make even more firsts!
With a busy schedule (as I am sure most of us can relate), the only way for me to truly stay on track with clean eating is meal prep. I am not a huge fan of the traditional chicken + broccoli for lunch & dinner (5x a week) especially because I’m vegetarian, but more because its BORING!
This healthy combo has been one of my go-to recipes recently!
5 Ted talks that will both change your week + your life!
