Coming Home (& Giveaway)

Coming Home

I’ll never get tired of seeing this…home is one of the sweetest words I know. Because of finals at college, I haven’t been around for a while…so I’m looking forward to blogging more regularly again.

Here’s a little glimpse into my life these last few weeks…

Healthy Grocery Shopping

(I love grocery shopping – so much fun!)

Healthy Studying

(Hello studying)

Protein Pancake Food Prep

(I never had a ton of time so when I did meal prep, I’d try to make double of whatever I was making for the next day’s lunch…this was banana chocolate chip protein pancakes – ahhmazing)


(And MORE studying)

Vega One Bar Giveaway

One of the things that was a HUGE lifesaver for me were these bars from Vega. I’m crazy in love with them. In the city, it felt like I was always on my way somewhere and there was multiple meals that I just never had time to make…that’s when I’d grab one of these Vega One bars. Just one bar has the same nutrition as a whole lunch – so I always felt good about replacing meals with it. Most of all, I am superficial…and liked them just because they are so yummy-licous.

Things I like about it:

  • Gluten-free
  • 15g protein
  • 1.5g of Omega-3
  • 6g fiber
  • 1 billion dairy-free probiotics
  • 1 serving of greens

GIVEAWAY! Here’s the good news – three of you can win a box of them! It’s on my Instagram…so all you have to do is follow @VegaTeam and @colourfulpalate on Instagram and comment on the above picture saying you want to win. The giveaway ends May 3rd.

Have you tried Vega One Bars? How do you eat healthy when you’re short on time?

    I have yet to try any Vega products. They’re usually kind of pricey do I’m afraid to spend money on something I won’t enjoy; a sample would be great! I do what you do, make multiple meals in one sitting. I generally make a few breakfast smoothies packed with greens and protein. They make for a quick grab and go meal throughout the week :)

    Ps- welcome home!
