Ten Minute Tuna & Rice

This summer has been some kind of crazy. I have actually been gone every single weekend of June and July. And while this has meant an enormous amount of opportunity for incredible memories with familly and friends...its also meant that I am super zonked all week from being out of my routine.

Girlfrand over hurr LOVES routine. 

The thing is that in order for me to do this whole healthy-living-thang forever and ever... I have to allow myself the flexibility to know how to balance play & health. Sure, I haven't been lifting many heavy things this summer, but I've rehabbed my achilles tendonitis injury and have been running on the reg. Def have not been eating as many veggies as usual, but I've been practicing intermittent fasting & eating tons of protein & veg at every opportunity.

They're filming a Gap commercial outside my apartment right now and they're being super loud. I kind of wanted to say 'hella loud.' Can I make that a thing? Is that a cool thing to say?

ANYWAY, this recipe is HELLA delicious and really fast to make.
