Eating a gluten free lifestyle isn’t always easy. I personally struggle with it at times. Although, I’m not allergic to gluten I do find myself to be sensitive. Anytime I eat gluten, I end up feeling bloated and too many days in a row I even notice my skin will break out. So I know that eating gluten is not good for me, my body, or my health so I choose to stick to a gluten free diet and sometimes finding tasty snacks isn’t always easy.

4 Easy Ways to UnBored Your Veggies:
How to Eat More Veggies
I’ll be honest. I am not a veggie fan. I almost have to force myself to eat them…and plain veggies forget it! However, I know the importance of veggies. Veggies are excellent for health and even for glowing skin. So they are a MUST in my diet and should be in yours.
Eating healthy can be difficult but by planning ahead and finding short cuts to meal prep it doesn’t have to be as difficult or time consuming! My top tips for easy meal prep include:
1. Plan your meals for the week.
Think ahead! Plan for leftovers when possible (especially for your lunch the next day if you’re not going to be home) and cook in bulk whenever you can. There’s no need to cook a bunch of meals everyday, so cook extras whenever you can.
A great tool I love the is the Paprika App for my Iphone, Ipad, and Mac. It allows me to always have all my recipes handy and so I can plan all my meals for the week. It even has a meal planner option and allows you to make a grocery list from that!
