I recently checked out Yami Mufdi’s YouTube channel after following her on Instagram for a while and I’ve been loving her videos as she prepares for her next show. I’m kind of at an in between point with my fitness goals and what I’m working towards, and I’m looking for new inspirations, and seeing her persevere through her meal plan while while sticking to some intense workouts makes me feel like I can do anything.

    And yet another work week begins! It’s been a long time since I’ve done a big meal prep Sunday and I was feeling totally inspired this week. Lately I’ve been making a lot of tasty dinners and been taking the leftovers to work as my lunch, which works nicely with my busy schedule. Tuna Avocado Celery Salad | 109 Calories, 1g Carbs, 1g Fat, 23g Protein I made a similar recipe to this a few weeks ago, but I wanted to use Greek yogurt in place of mayo and also add in the celery for some crunch. 14 oz. canned tuna 1 stalk of celery cilantro 1 T Greek yogurt lemon pepper…

    Healthy Recipes for Easter

If you’re trying to stay on track with a nutrition plan or a diet, then this is probably a dreaded time for you.
