Since starting my company at 17, I’ve had to sacrifice lots of things. Discovering what you want to do in life at an early age is a blessing. However, you live a different lifestyle than your peers because of the mindset you develop at such a young age. As a woman of color who grew up in poverty and motherless, I had to sacrifice more than most and to be frank, I just couldn’t do what others could. So, I challenged all that energy to growing my business. As a result, I am successful and I am able to talk to others about the things I’ve gone through and the sacrifices I had to make to get to where I am today. Advice: If you don’t have a goal, career, or idea to challenge your energy, then now is the time to create one. Begin to build your life. It’s never to late to begin again. No matter how early you start or how late, what’s yours is yours. Be great. ~ MJ #entrepreneur #motivation #inspiration #striveforgreatness

Today’s lunch consisted of the healthy foods you see in the photo above. Below I will discuss with you why I chose the following foods and why they are good for you.
Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of health benefits. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, or the “good” fats.

Fish may reduce tissue inflammation and alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Fish may play a beneficial role in cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), reducing depression and halting mental decline in older people.
Eating yogurt is one of the most common ways to consume the healthy bacteria beneficial to the gut known as probiotics. Probiotics are effective in regulating the digestive system and decreasing gas, diarrhea, constipation and bloating.
