Meal Prep | Lunch Edition


Recently I’ve discovered the BEST homemade lunch for work that everyone should 100% try it out. It’s healthy and delicious (delicious is the key word).

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Quinoa
  • Kale
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Small piece of Salmon (or you can substitute with any kind of meat)
  • Pine nuts
  • Red/Yellow/Orange peppers
  • Lemon pepper salt
  • Coconut oil
  • Garlic
  • Onion

To start off, you’ll need to first cut up the kale into little chunks, cut the grape tomatoes in half, season the salmon (or any kind of meat) with lemon pepper salt and cut up the peppers into little cubes.

First, preheat the oven at 350 and grease your pan to start baking the salmon for 30 mins. While the salmon is cooking, start cooking your quinoa on the side. Then startheating up your pan with a little bit of coconut oil on medium heat. Add in some garlic for flavor, then gradually add in the assortment of peppers, onion, kale and grape tomatoes. Allow it to cook until tender (around 10 mins or less).

Now that everything is cooked, you can start packing your lunches!

Place the quinoa on the bottom, top it off with the kale, garlic, onion, tomato and pepper mixture on top of it. Add the salmon on top and sprinkle some pine nut to top it all off. Just like that, you’re ALL DONE!

If you end up trying out this recipe, let me know how you like it! Or if you have a healthy recipe you enjoy making for lunch, I’d LOVE to try it out too.

Much Love,

Yay I got my first job – how do I feel about it? 


Since my graduation in May, I started working in the big apple – NYC at a media company! I remember when I was in college, this was everything I wanted after graduation. I was hypnotized by the fast paced city life, in comparison to NJ. 

Till today, I still really enjoy that type of lifestyle – but it does get exhausting sometimes. Keep in mind when you find a job in NYC, you will be working long hours (9-8) – sometimes even till midnight. There’s no such thing as normal work hours or a work life balance on weekdays. However, it could also be because I’m an entry level employee. 

Fortunately, I’m learning a lot for the four weeks I started working. I was able to be complete a whole project on my own and little assignments on the side. It’s been an overwhelming four weeks but also exciting. It’s very different than college which I wasn’t expecting, maybe I was in denial/college withdrawal. 

Leave a comment below on what your first full time job experience was/is like? I’d love to hear your opinions! 

Much Love,

Veee
