Blog To Thrive – Fuel For Success

The following is an entry to the UBC Blog to Thrive Challenge (UBC’s mental health awareness week Oct. 17-21) 


Being a Dietetics major at UBC, I think it’s only fitting that I practice what I (am soon to) preach while I try and maintain balance with my hectic schedule. I make a point every day to fuel up with delicious and nutritious eats as often as possible. Even with my long commute to and from campus, I take the time to prepare meals and snacks that will keep me going throughout the day.

I always start with a healthy breakfast – it could be a smoothie, oatmeal, or good ol’ peanut butter and jam on toast.



I pack a balanced, colourful lunch – plus snacks – almost every day (this keeps my wallet happy as well).

And I stay hydrated with my eco-friendly reusable water bottle.


Fuelling my body with healthy eats helps me to Thrive at UBC!

    i thought my food and meals were colourful, but this takes it to “rainbow-level” which obviously is a good thing since you’ve got a whole range of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants spread throughout the day 🙂

    i have always wanted to get a klean kanteen. i saw them at lifestyles and planet o. and i believe i even put it on my christmas list to santa but i never ended up getting one. but i seriously need to because im sick and tired of my fiji water bottle usage…it’s helping no one 😛

    xoxo ❤
