egg-white omelette

It might be apparent to my readers that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so there is nothing I love more than a simple breakfast. We are taught in nutrition that eggs have gotten a bad rap over time because of their high amount of cholesterol, but that was overturned a few years…

keep your head in the game

I was asked to write on the topic of being a pre-medical student and being discouraged throughout one’s time as an undergraduate student. I was asked how I remain motivated and keep my mind in the game despite trials associated with being a student in a intense program of study – that won’t be getting…

cocoa pb nice cream

Banana “nice cream” is all the rage for those who are vegan, lactose-intolerant, and those that are looking to enjoy a frozen treat without all the cals + the notorious “I-ate-too-much-dairy” digestive discomfort. I have seen and tried PLENTY of variations of this frozen goodness from the internet including chocolate mint, raspberry vanilla, oatmeal cookie,…

histo how-to

If you are planning on going into a medical professional field and your school offers histology for undergrads, I highly encourage you to take it. The content is dense, but I believe it is a great preparatory course for several professional programs. I am happy to share with you a few tips that helped me with…

job shadow: PATHOLOGY.

As my followers, you guys know I am a firm-believer in the importance in shadowing. In fact, I wrote a guide to shadowing a few months ago! Though I am still an undergrad and do not yet have to make a decision about what specialty I am choosing to pursue, I find that exploring different…

Top 5: Grab & Go Snacks

There are never enough hours in a day to get everything done. Is anyone else with me there? Preparing meals ahead of time is usually in the busy human’s repertoire, but grabbing *healthy* snacks may not be. Here are my top 5 favorite snacks that require little prep (if any), won’t upset your stomach, or your…

cinnamon roll (liquid gold).

Dessert-themed smoothies make the experience even better. You’re getting a lot of the flavor you get in your favorite treat, without all the empty calories, and WITH a bunch more fiber, vitamins, and minerals. If you’re really feeling like you want to “treat yoself”, top this one with a little coconut whipped cream! 😉 *recipe is…

breakfast quesadilla

Fill your morning with fiber, veggies, protein, and complex carbs that will keep you going until it’s time for lunch (or your mid-morning snack if you’re like me!). Americans have a funny misconception of eating sugary things such as cereals and pastries for breakfast, and I don’t know about you, but those things don’t fuel me…
