About Me

Hi! My name is Courtney Chou Lee and I’m a 20 year old that loves to cook, eat, and workout to maintain a healthy lifestyle! I’m currently majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship at the University of Southern California, but my passion for helping others and for promoting overall wellness has inspired me to pursue a Minor in Nutrition and Health Promotion.

    • Thank you for your kindness, though I credit my mom who’s an awesome photographer haha. As for foods I eat, my meals are all very simple because I’m in college so prep time is pretty minimal (hence my question to you about your patience in preparing some of your recipes:)). And even though salads are actually extremely easy to just tosss together, i rarely ever find myself eating a salad; instead, I prefer to lightly steam/microwave a couple stalk of kale, broccoli, collard greens, etc. and sprinkle some Mrs. Dash no-salt seasoning over it. Or, I’ll just drizzle a tiny bit of oyster sauce that I thin out with water. Everything tends to be Asian-oriented because I love the flavors and foods, and it’s what I’ve grown up with. So quick stirfries are common and always start out with minced garlic, green onions, dried red chili flakes, and sometimes a touch of ginger. Lately I’ve really been into making my own in-between meal snack smoothies, but mornings I typically like to have either a chocolate peanut butter smoothie, 2 hard boiled eggs that I dip in 1-2TB of peanut butter, oatmeal and peanut butter (notice a trend in my peanut-butter-love;)?) I do also like to make my own wraps that I can take to campus when I’m running around in between classes and the filling always has basalmic vinegar+artichoke hummus and a leafy green, but my protein varies from tofu, a broken up garden burger, or some homemade mashed beans. If I have time I’ll make some soups and stews that are my mom’s recipes that are fulll of vegetables. I basically have a very vegetable based diet and get my protein from the tofu, legumes, nuts (ahh i could eat an entire bag of raw almonds or roasted peanuts), nut butters, some protein powders, eggs, and plain greek yogurt. If my budget would allow though, I would eat my way through every sashimi dish in los angeles:) I love ALL seafood.

      I’m sorry this post was probably much more than you would have liked, and I still have not even covered a large portion of things I
      typically eat on a daily basis. πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for stopping by and hope to keep in touch!

  1. Courtney, I cannot thank you enough for coming to my blog and taking the time to look around and comment on my posts. I really appreciate it!!! It is so nice to get to know other college bloggers, especially ones with such similar interests as me!

    It is so cool that your grandparents own a soy products business. I think you would absolutely love the baked tofu…it really transforms the product (as I am sure you know)!

    I will definitely be back to your blog and I sincerely hope you will be back to mine πŸ™‚
