Usually after working out, I always find myself thinking two things:
- Why do I have to be so hungry?
- WTF do I eat without eating my workout away?
Normally my go-to is always something having to do with fruit. Whether it’s a smoothie, peanut butter and banana, fruit with yogurt, etc.
Lately, I’ve surprised myself by actually becoming more of a veggie eater. I even yearned to eat a tomato like an apple the other day #whatisliferightnow
Now being that I’m back in school, I’ve managed to visit local coffee shops to “do my homework” in, but it simply just led to me eating and drinking tea without accomplishing much of anything #collegestudentproblems
Even though I wasn’t necessarily being “school productive,” I still managed to achieve something: eating a healthy meal filled with greens that provide great health benefits!
