Greek kale and quinoa salad meal prep bowls are addictively delicious! Tender kale, salty feta cheese, crunchy cucumbers everything you need in a salad all packed up and ready to take to work!
I’m writing this post while getting my hair cut, I just finished listening to a lecture on mitochondrial damage and cancer for school, I’m jumping back and forth between client emails, and making lists of all that I have to get done in the next 5 days. Multitasking. It’s my reality. I bet it’s yours too.
Although I technically work from home my days are packed with grad school, an internship, private nutrition practice, and life. Oh, and my baby sister is getting married next weekend in Iceland. Woohoo!
All great stuff, but busy. I know busy. I thrive in busy, but my health is never sacrificed for my schedule. Non-negotiable.
Through my own journey of self-discovery and healing around food, I’ve learned that if my life is chaotic my food has to be ordered. If my schedule increases in intensity then my organization around meal prep has to also intensify. When my food is out of order I feel crazy. When my food is out of order, self- care is no longer a priority. I’ve been down that road before and it isn’t pretty.
My favorite way to cook and create in the kitchen is with a leisurely, slow energy. I put on a podcast or show tunes and just play. That’s my favorite and preferred, it’s not always my reality.
So when busy becomes BUSY I jump into meal prep like a boss. I love it, it calms me, and knowing there is healthy food always at the ready is how I take radically great care of myself.
