Teacher Friendly Meal Prep

Teacher Friendly Meals via the sister! My sister is a teacher and stays on top of her goals by prepping healthy lunches for the week on Sunday…here’s a vegetarian southwestern quinoa bowl ๐Ÿš
.
Prefer more variety?! Make extras for dinner and pack leftovers for lunch the next day ๐Ÿฝ

Here’s the recipe she used!

Be Kind

“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be KIND. Always”
.
I still remember sitting across from my nutrition therapist with complete and utter jealously. It had nothing to do with her looks, her job, or anything you may think of typically.
.
“I bet she eats cake on her Birthday”.
.
…Was all I could think on repeat. For a long time, food was my enemy.
.
Holidays weren’t enjoyed because I spent the days surrounded by food and fear.
.
Beach trips were few and far between because the anxiety of wearing a bathing just wasn’t worth it.
.
And friends were practically nonexistent because it was a whole lot easier to hide my “issues” that way.
.
NOW I eat cake on my birthday, my favorite place is the beach, and I have some of the BEST friends I could ask for.
.
As I got ready for a pool day with one of my favorites today I was reminded of just how many little things we take for granted.
.
So just a reminder to always be KIND. Often times, the things we take for granted someone else is praying for. ๐Ÿ’›โœจ

Confession…

I want to let you in on a SECRET…

I don’t DIET

I don’t spend HOURS at the gym doing cardio

I follow a meal plan with built in cheats.

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is its about LIVING HEALTHY not DIETING.

Take care of your body and it will take care of you BACK!!! Funny how that works ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜me
