Today's the big day!
Noche de MAS is right around the corner - head over to BMSLC 1.105 from 6-8 PM to learn more about the UTRGV Mexican American Studies program followed by a night of reading and entertainment as artists share their work. We will also be launching our new Spring 2019 issue. We hope to see you there!
Salpicon de Pollo. A delicious cold chicken salad that’s perfect for tostadas. Chicken, Nopalitos, Chipotle and more! All the ingredients I love. See it temporarily on my stories right now. Saved to my highlights under chicken too. Hope you are having a wonderful day! I am!☺️☺️❤️🍍🍍🌶🌶🌶🌶
•I used to eat fast food multiple times a day.
•I used to drive myself and (then, 2 babies) to the drive thru of Starbucks because I needed the caffeine to survive the day.
•I used to also drink 2-3 dr. Peppers a day because the sugar rush got me by after the coffee wore off. •I didn’t know how to boil water & typically bought all processed foods when grocery shopping because it was seemed easy. That was in 2016
Today, I still treat myself to a cheat meal once a week. •I’ll have a soda or 2 when I’m enjoying my cheat meal.
•I taught myself how to cook easy, healthy meals with clean ingredients (gotta keep the babies alive somehow 😂)
•I follow a customized meal plan & know exactly what & how much to eat (protein, veggies, fruits, carbs, healthy fats, seeds & dressings, oils & nut butters) so my body stays fueled & I get the results that I want. •I ditched the $5 Starbucks coffee for a dense nutritional shake that fuels my body with amazing superfoods
It’s been a learning process. I still struggle with food temptation when there is pizza or junk food in the house & I haven’t been perfect by any means. When I stop a program and take TOO long of a break, I have trouble starting back up.
But one thing remains 👉My WANT for change.
I know what it feels like when I fuel my body properly. I also know how shitty I feel when I don’t. So, I just keep going
You can never fail if you keep putting forth the effort & make improvements as each day passes
This is hard. It requires effort. It requires giving yourself grace & ditching the diet mentality
You’ll be sore.
It will challenge you.
It will also change you in the BEST way possible.
Selfies were never my thing, but it's become a virtual artifact of some sort.
I'm not sure what year selfies became popular, but they can be cool. The perspective and backgrounds can make your selfie even better.
Here's a progression of serio (serious) to funny (comico) or happy (feliz). Haha it worked out quite well as random as it was.
Happy to be rocking my guayabera, thanks primo @adammavalos for hooking it up!
I realized that night folks were looking at me or staring somewhat as I looked different from the crowd, but that made it all the better.
ALWAYS be proud of where you came from!! Do you know the story behind how your family or whoever raised you got to the country you currently live in? I kind of do.
History is unfortunately forgotten and even purposely erased, but forget that!! Your roots are and will always be important.
Super Excited To Announce The 2nd Edition of The Rebel Bred International Series. Cinco De Mayo 2019 Rebel Bred International!! For Those who are unfamiliar with the now popular holiday, here is a brief write up!
Cinco de Mayo — sometimes mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day — is celebrated by a population of residents in the Mexican state of Puebla, southeast of Mexico City.
The day honors May 5, 1862, when the Mexican Army defeated European invaders at the Battle of Puebla. The triumph was unexpected — Texas-born General Ignacio Zaragoza led the outnumbered and poorly supplied Mexicans. Nonetheless they triumphed and maintained their land.

A bit of Barrio Garden wisdom.. help us celebrate Tucson’s traditional Mexican-American home gardens on a national stage - at the front steps of the US Botanic Garden, by giving a gift today through the link in our bio.
I got to pick tulips in this backyard as a kid for a few years. I played in mud, ran laps, ate dandelions, made witches brew from puddles, and put my feet in the grass. I felt proud to be weird, even amongst the suburban homies. My cousins and I played kickball, threw pinecones at each other, broke apart piñatas, and the list goes on... This is my new lil' cousin. He's kind of like a nephew and I love him. 🎵🎶🎵
