Being gluten free has almost gone on the back burner of my life lately. And I mean this in the best way. I have gotten to the point in my gluten free life where it is second nature to me, whether it be cooking at home or going out to eat at a restaurant. As humans, we are creatures of habit, so I tend to stick to the same meals. When it comes to cooking at college, I tend to make meals as quickly as possible, but I still like them to be delicious. I stick to oats for breakfast, protein shakes and lunch meat/crackers for lunch, and some type of protein and carb for dinner.
oats for breakfast
lunch on a busy day
salmon, quinoa, and veggies for dinner
Besides good eats, I have also started to get into fitness more. Since my foot inury, I have cut back on running, and have started to lift weights more. It has not been an easy transition since I have always been a cardio junkie. Lifting weights has made me a whole new person. For once, I feel strong. I feel empowered. I feel good. Yes, I am more sore than usual, but it's a good kind of sore. I have also started skiing again now that we finally have snow here in MinneSNOWta. I guess my point is that working out is a major outlet for me. Somehow completely exhausting myself is one of the most relaxing parts of my day.
So what's in store for 2014? Lots of things! I will keep that update for another post. Hope everyone is having a happy and healthy holiday season!
