Eating Healthy on a College Budget

MONEY PROBS. We all have ’em. The majority of the college-aged population is on a tight budget, and that can be very restricting in a number of ways. One example? Food. Here’s the thing, though. When people say, “Eating healthy is too expensive,” I’m like, “Kind of, but kind of not.” A lot of people say eating healthy is expensive, so they go out to eat for every meal. Cooking your own food is much less expensive than eating out, so in that case, eating healthy is cheap. On the other hand, organic food is more expensive than non-organic. However, in-season produce is pretty cheap…

Squatty Potties Are The Shit.

Today I’m talking about something I am very very VERY obsessed with. SQUATTY POTTIES. Everyone makes fun of me for this, but I couldn’t give a shit. See what I did there? So punny. Before I start, I need to warn you — if you’re uncomfortable with poop talk, then this is not the place for you. I am overly comfortable discussing pooping, so I’m going to be straightforward about it. I have an obsession with digestive health not only because digestive issues have been such a large part of my life, but also because I truly believe that healthy digestion is the foundation for…

How to Create a Balanced Meal

We’ve talked kitchen accessories. We’ve talked cooking routines. Now it’s time to talk about actually BUILDING YO’ PLATE. It’s great if you can drag your butt to the store, get yourself into a cooking routine, and cook the food, but how do you actually put it all together? I think this is a question a lot of people have when they first start cooking for themselves, but no one really wants to ask it. I wouldn’t recommend cooking 8 pieces of chicken and then eating all of those for dinner. I also wouldn’t recommend cooking three heads of broccoli and just eating…

My Favorite Cocktail: Intravenous Nutrient Therapy

If you follow me on Snapchat or watch my Instagram stories, you’ve probably seen me get hooked up to an IV when I visit my doctor. Whenever that happens, I get a ton of messages asking what I’m doing and if I’m okay. TIME FOR THE FULL EXPLANATION. I’ve been working with a functional medicine doctor for a little over 6 months to improve my digestion and help fix my stomach probs. I’m feeling so much better, and one of the main things that has improved my health the most is intravenous nutrient therapy. I get bloodwork done pretty regularly to see what’s goin’…

Sundays, Sunlife Organics, & Malibu Farm

Yesterday was a great Sunday. Last week was rough for me, so I needed to get my mind off things. I needed to relax, do something different, and surround myself with positive energy. I have also been freaking out about the fact that it’s almost September, because that means school is right around the corner. I’m running out of time to work on my massive summertime to-do list, and it’s nowhere near being completed. Struggles. I decided that a day in Malibu with my friends was just what I needed. I’ve actually never been to Malibu before, which most people are shocked to…
