Who said eating healthy sucked?

If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly hungry and constantly tempted by food that maybe isn’t so good for you. Well, luckily, I’m here to share some of my favourite healthy recipes with you – in the form of a one-day-meal plan.

1) Breakfast

Arguably the most important meal of the day, something we should all try our best to eat. (BTW, look out for the free breakfasts UTM offers  – you won’t regret it!)

But, instead of the vanilla yogurt, try it with Greek Yogurt and add honey. Mmmm, honey.

2) Lunch

Who doesn’t love good BLT? Well, I guess those who don’t eat pork or meat. Well, I’ll have a veggie-friendly option after this. In my opinion, this is even better than a BLT. Sounds fancy too.

No changes. You can’t change perfection.

2) Lunch – Veggie Edition

White beans, artichoke, make ahead, oh lord, need I say more?

3) Dinner

Ask anyone who knows me – I love salmon. I can’t get enough of salmon. Here is my favourite dinner recipe ever. Fave veggies to eat it with: broccoli or asparagus.

3) Dinner – Veggie Options

I could eat this for the rest of my life and die a happy girl. Also a favourite of my little sister’s, leading to all out wars over leftovers. Use any kinds of beans you want, I prefer red kidney myself. Don’t forget the whole wheat pasta, doesn’t have to be a shell. I like spaghettini personally. Just something about the twirl of the fork.

5) DESSERT

Cookies. That’s all I have to say.

If you really want more motivation to eat healthy, just remember that “A balanced diet and physical activity are vital to academic performance. A healthy diet has a direct link to increased cognitive function and memory skills, decreased absenteeism from school, and improved mood. These advantages can help students stay focused and complete their coursework.” Thanks Matt Cartwright, duly noted. Let’s go get those 4.0s and get cracking on those freshman fifteen!
