Hi! I’m Liv, and I’m a junior studying political science and public policy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I’ve discovered that living a “healthy” life looks a lot different as a college student living in a dorm, but making the effort to eat
well and work out is worth it, even though college can be a really busy time…often without a lot of sleep.
I started blogging to share ideas for eating healthy in college and to write about finding balance. To me, being healthy means running lots of miles and eating healthy foods that I love, but also enjoying some not-so-healthy food sometimes, too.
I love running and I typically run about 35-40 miles per week. Although I ran track and cross country in high school, I just run for fun with friends and for stress relief now. I still love road races and did my first half marathon when I was 16. I’ve done a handful more since then, with a personal best time of 1:31. Sometime in the next year or two, I hope to train for my first marathon. You can check out my running story here!
To fuel all my running, I eat A LOT. I love healthy food, so roasted vegetables, giant salads, and every kind of fruit make me happy, but I also have a major sweet tooth. Dark chocolate and ice cream with lots of chocolate-y mix-ins are my weaknesses. I’ve also loved to cook and bake since before I can remember.
I’ll share some of my favorite recipes, easy snacks, quick meals to make in a dorm room, and a little of my life as I go. I’d love for you to follow along. I promise not to share videos of myself rapping, recipes for sugar-free avocado black bean brownies, or anything else that could scar you for life.
