Vegetarian Tofu Fajitas

The past two weeks or so I’ve been cheating A LOT when it comes to my healthy eating habits (not horrriblyy...but not as healthy as I should have been). And so I was actually feeling a little guilty about it! It can be really hard to eat healthy when you are super busy with school, work, your social life, and everything else under the sun! I’m sure many of you can relate, but don’t let it stop you from eating right, and don’t beat yourself up when you get a little off track. It is really easy to turn back around!

So instead of making excuses, I just forced myself to get back to my healthy eating habits. This recipe was a superrrr easy, quick and tasty way to contribute to them! As I’ve said before, I’m not vegetarian–but I do try to eat meatless most of the time. This was actually my first time cooking tofu and if I must say myself, it came out really good! Lol but if you don’t like tofu you can add chicken! So try it out and let me know what you think!!!

Green Smoothie

Screen-shot-2013-02-10-at-11.54.50-PM

If you know me, you already know that I absolutely loveeee my green smoothie! I can’t go a day without it! It is full of vitamins and minerals including fiber, amino acids, iron, and so much more. Most American’s don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables on a daily basis, so this smoothie makes sure you get your daily dosage! This smoothie has made my skin clearer and glowy, my hair longer and healthier, and it has given me more energy! I am still a coffee drinker (bad, I know) but I am not nearly as dependent on it as I used to be because of this smoothie! I’ve replaced coffee with smoothies and now I only drink coffee once in awhile or during finals week–lol. Also! The green smoothie has encouraged me to change other areas of my diet and jump start my health journey. Your body craves what you put in–so if you eat healthy foods, you’ll desire it.

My Health Journey

vscocam61So I’ve shared with you my natural hair journey, but my health journey was and is also a big part of it! This is because your health dictates the appearance of your hair and skin! If the inside of your body is healthy, then the outside will be as well! When you put junk food, sweets, soda, and other processed foods into your body, then your digestive system has to work super hard to get rid of it because our bodies were not made to digest it. Since it has to work so hard, it wastes tons of energy and then it doesn’t have any energy left to cater to your beauty needs such as your hair and skin. Then, your body tries to store it in forms of fat, and tries to get rid of the toxins in the form of acne and other ways. It also doesn’t have any energy to take care of your hair and make it long, thick, and healthy. Makes too much sense right!? When I discovered this–it changed my wholeee view on eating! It really made me think twice every time I went to reach for that sugary donut or cheesy pizza. Food is soo powerful! It can either be healing and super beneficial, or it can literally be deadly. So I decided to take control of my health and turn it around! Now, I admit this was not an easy transition at all. And I must emphasize–a transition,meaning this didn’t happen overnight. It took time. I started changing my eating habits about a year ago, and I am still changing them. That is why it is a journey! :).
