Recipes for Fabulousness

Hi everyone! My name is Briana and I am a student at Brandeis University. I've recently become interested in health and nutrition, especially a primal diet and interval training. I've on a journey to lose about 40 pounds. I'll be posting some of my favorite articles, nutrition systems, recipes, workouts, and ideas for incorporating healthy living into busy college life. Cheers!

One week of healthy meals

Hey guys! Since I’ve been cooking pretty much all of my meals and making them very healthy, I thought I’d share with you an example of the food I eat in a week. This is just an example though—I generally change the type of food I make every week.

The type of diet I try to stick to includes foods that are unprocessed.  I try not to consume packaged foods as much as possible, and I try to avoid gluten and conventional dairy.

*I use either coconut oil, olive oil, or kerrygold (grassfed) butter to cook my food.

Breakfasts:
M, W, F: Smoothie made with 1 cup frozen berries, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 scoop chocolate vegan protein powder, 1 cup organic whole milk
T, Su: Homemade Almond Flax meal bread, 1 fried egg
Th, Sa: Apple cinnamon oatmeal (1/2 cup steel cut oats, water, 1/2 crisp apple, cinnamon, dash of milk, 1 tbsp pure maple syrup)
