I woke up to this quote and am definitely inspired to live this way every day of my life:
That mantra is basically sums up the premise of my blog to inspire in others!
I read this awesome article regarding Time & Stress on one of the blogs I follow: Maria’s Farm Country Kitchen.
She makes a great point – “It turns out that time is the major culprit that ignites our collective stress and anxiety responses. Some researchers have even gone so far as to call stress “a disease of time deficiency.”
The #1 thing I took from her article was: Honor your time budget: ”Like any budget, there are constraints. Before you plan a vacation, you check your bank account balance. So, peer into your daily time wallet, and then plan and look ahead at each day and realistically acknowledge how much time you can dedicate to both food preparation and physical activity. Don’t feel bad about not having enough time. Just accept the time you have and plan for the things you need.”
I like to plan my meals ahead of time, so that when I’m rushing during the week – I always have something healthy on hand.
However – I am a huge Rubio’s advocate. Its fast, fresh, easy – and packs healthy protein! I didn’t think I would ever sway from my love of their grilled tilapia tacos…. But Rubio’s did it again! The new chimichurri salmon tacos are AMAZING!
The salmon is topped with a savory blend of basil, parsley, chives, garlic and olive oil, fire-roasted corn, crema, fresno chiles and spring mix.
Point is – when I don’t have something to eat, I go to Rubio’s and order the 2 taco plate to save for 2 meals! Absolutely delicious!
