If you're anything like me, you already know that we're all trying to weigh a dream weight (personal to every individual) while on a diet of double cheeseburgers and Mac n' Cheese. Although we can't particularly have this diet while still maintaining our dream size, there are a few things we can have on-the-go that are appropriate enough to scarf down while still being happy in our own bodies while living a strenuous life in college.

Breakfast: Overnight Oats.

Once upon a time, I was skeptical about the concept of overnight oats and for a simple reason: because I hate oatmeal. I'm not sure if I hate it because it's a rather boring concept related to food or for some other reason but I decided to finally take the plunge a few nights ago when two of my friends made it. My rendition of overnight oats includes my choice of rolled oats, cocoa powder, chia seeds, a half cup of Almond milk, dark chocolate chips and a one-eighth tablespoon of salt for the salty measure.

Lunch: Tuna salad lettuce wrap.

This just requires two cans of your choice of tuna, bits of lettuce leaves, a stalk of celery, cherry tomatoes, a hard boiled egg (for the side of course), lemon juice, salt, black pepper and a dash of red chili powder. After mixing this all, just add a dollop or 5 onto a leaf of lettuce and you've got yourself a light but filling lettuce wrap.

Dinner: DIY Steak Burrito Bowl.

One of my newest and favorite meals of all time, you can definitely make this in bulk for seconds and thirds. This involved steak, a cup of brown rice, thinly sliced peppers, onions, half of an avocado, your choice of salsa, lemon juice, and a ~sprinkle~ of Mexican blend cheese. PSA: I'm literally tearing as I write about this beloved steak bowl because I've already gone through the first, second and third of its leftovers.


A lil snacky: Oven roasted vegetable chips.

This is more bougie than "on-the-go" but it's healthy nonetheless. This just takes your choice of vegetables or just kale leaves with olive oil drizzled on top, a sprinkle of salt and pepper and lemon juice and finally just pop those bad boys in the oven for 15-20 minutes and you've got yourself a handful of snacks for the 4-hour class you have in a few minutes.

Bon Appétit!

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple.
