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!
