I’ve been curious about trying Hello Fresh for a while now. I’ve told y’all before that I am a terrible cook, and usually end up eating the same bland things for lunches and dinner. I also like the idea of having the right amount of ingredients for a meal, without having a ton of waste to throw away. Right now, I find it hard to use up perishable ingredients when I’m just cooking for myself.
Negativity is a habit that spreads endlessly. It can spread from one part of your day to the next, from one interaction to the next, and from one person to the next. It takes a lot of work to remove yourself from negativity, each and every day. But there are small habits that you can work on breaking, that will make you feel so much better once you step away from them.
I’ve been working a lot on negative thoughts, feelings, and relationships lately, and these steps have helped me so much!
As you probably know, I’m big on having healthy snacks around at all times. Having snacks on hand throughout the day keeps me full in between meals, and it keeps me from being starving by the time I do get to eat a meal, which helps me be more mindful of what I make and eat.
One of my favorite go-to snacks are protein balls. They are a good homemade alternative to granola bars and can save you money too! I’ve experimented with a few different combinations, since I usually just use what is in my pantry, but this one has been my favorite combination so far!
There is a lot of talk about living more sustainably, and a lot of product solutions out there that claim to be better for the earth. But it can be really hard to navigate how you can actually live in a more sustainable way. Here are some ways you can actually reduce your consumption and make an impact right now:
I’m pretty sure you all already know this, but I’m a terrible cook. I’ve tried to get better, but it’s something I’ll probably never be great at. I have made a lot of progress in meal prepping my lunches for the work week, and making meals that I will actually eat, instead of leaving in the fridge while I buy something instead.
I try to keep a list of meal ideas to change it up each week. The key to me is that they are simple, filling, and include some good-for you protein and veggies. I thought I would round up some of my favorite lunch ideas for you guys so that you have no excuses not to prep this week!
This meal prep recipe was inspired by a superbowl party snack that my friend Amanda, over at Thirty-Two Degrees made. She brought some amazing greek pinwheels for one of our appetizers and they were literally SO good! I decided to make a “better for you” version to pack for work week lunches, and they turned out pretty good! Keep reading for the recipe below!
