pre-pack: saves you from the hunger monster!


Vancouver is submerged in fog, and it looks absolutely stunning! There is something about fog that is so romantic and eerie; all at the same time.
Other than the fog being beautiful, life isn’t as beautiful as I would like it to be. I am getting a little stressed with school. This physics type class, called Biomechanics, is driving me nuts! I just can’t seem to wrap my brain around numbers and words simultaneously. I am not a logical person, and I am FINE with that, just don’t make me do this anymoreeeeee 😦 I really really really despise this stuff.

Anyway, unfortunately, I do not have a say in the matter, and I am forced (against my will) to take this class, so all I can do is suck it up and stop complaining 😦

Every night, before bed, I pack the next days meals. If you want to make healthier food decisions, then I urge you to do this.
I cannot bare to be hungry! I really do not like the feeling, and I need to eat every 2-3 hour; by the 4th hour I am usually famished (and cranky)! When I do get to this point of hunger, I make poor decisions, and will eat anything and everything that comes in my way. Not only will I make poor decisions, but I will inhale my food; consuming much more than I should have. Also, it is really hard to find healthy options, on-the-go, at cafes , or at restaurants. So, bringing food along with me just seems LOGICAL (ha!)
When I pack my meals, I pack smaller portions of each meal, so I get to eat more often! Also, I make sure to have one vegetable with each meal, so if I have a sandwich, I make sure to take one sliced bell pepper.
The veggie is KEY – the meal is incomplete without it! Veggies are packed with antioxidants and tons of nutrients, so why not add it to your meal? You are not losing anything; only gaining TONS of goodness!
