I’m a hugggge fan of cereal. It’s quick, effortless, & super filling.
However cereals like Lucky Charms & Fruity Pebbles do absolutely nothing for you besides adding blubber to your ass.
There are some brands that are packed with fiber ( examples: Ezekiel’s cereal, Fiber One, & original Shredded Wheat ) but I prefer to DIM ( do it myself ).
Why wouldn’t I? This mixture takes a total of two minutes & I love knowing exactly what I’m putting in my body. Chemical-filled, sickie cereals just don’t do it for me.
Extra additions: almond milk, rice milk, or Greek yogurt. And a sprinkle of cinnamon/nutmeg/pumpkin pie spice is real mouth party too.
Quick skinny tip: use bowls that are this size when you’re wolfing down any kind of cereal. Think: portion control, portion control, portion control!
DIY Fiber-Filled Cereal:
1/2 cup of unsweetened muesli ( w/ or w/o raisins )
2 tablespoons of unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tablespoons of sliced almonds, unsalted
1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds, unsalted
1 tablespoon flaxseeds, whole
A few raspberries
A sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, &/or pumpkin pie spice
Optional: add almond milk, rice milk, or Greek yogurt.
Directions: wash berries. Mix the combination with a spoon. Sprinkle spices on top. Add milk or a few spoonfuls yogurt on top. P.S. make tons of this at once so you always have healthy cereal on hand!
Hi Beauties! Let’s talk about the dreaded Freshman 15…
Here is a grocery list for college students [ that have no refrigerator access ] who feel trapped into eating cafeteria food, late-night pizza + ranch dressing, and/or mac n’ cheese at 3 am:
+ Pirate’s Booty [ best kind: the lunch pack bags for kids aka the Sponge Bob kind ]
+ Cuties Clementines
+ Cashews + dried organic Turkish apricots
+ Almond butter packets [ I like putting these on bananas/apples/pears ]
+ Apple chips
+ Smart Food popcorn clusters
+ Veggie or sweet potato chips [ I like this brand ]
+ Ezekiel cereal [ mix this with Rice Milk- which doesn't have to be refrigerated ]
+ Wasabi peas
+ 1/2 of a Lara bar
+ Laughing Cow light cheese wedges
Just because you’re actively making an effort to eat healthy, doesn’t mean portion control shouldn’t still be demonstrated. Tips for portion control:
+ Never, ever eat out of bag/box- pour it in a small bowl [ think a miso soup-sized bowl ]
+ Buy small glass wear, bowls, plates, wine glasses, etc. There’s no reason to eat out of a swimming pool-sized bowl.
+ Portion examples: nuts = a handful, fruit = 2 tangerines, chips/popcorn/pretzels = miso soup-sized bowl
Stock up your dorm room or kitchen ASAP- there’s no reason to not have quick, low-cal snacks laying around for when you’re in a pinch!
Oh, and say buh-bye to soda- it’s a disgusting, horrible chemical & causes bloat.
This smoothie is a total high school throwback. It’s definitely the perfect post-workout snack; surprisingly, the healthy concoction actually tastes delicious & indulgent. Today instead of purchasing the smoothie, I decided to blend it myself. The homemade “Fat Burner” was almost too easy to make, so I knew I had to share.
* Quick Skinny Tip: If you’re going to go to Jamba Juice, choose wisely. Some of their smoothies may be low in calories, but ridiculously high in sugar. If I am in a bind, I’ll drink their “All-Fruit” smoothies with water, instead of fruit juice.
Oh, & P.S. their “Jamba Light” smoothies contain artificial sweeteners [ stay away: no one wants bloat & chemicals ].
