Welcome! I’m Alyssia Sheikh, and I’m the founder of Mind Over Munch. What began as my personal challenge to eat clean for 100 days on Instagram has become a journey of sharing recipes, fitness tips and general advice for your healthy lifestyle!
On the Mind Over Munch website, you’ll find delicious recipes that are guilt-free and figure-friendly alternatives to your favorite foods (and more!) without sacrificing any flavor. I am a group fitness instructor and personal trainer, and while I love exercise–I’ll be the first to say that weight loss, weight maintenance, and muscle gain are mostly dependent on diet (although a good balance of diet, exercise, and rest are all crucial to incorporate into your regular regimen!). Through this resource, you’ll find recipes that are appropriate for you regardless of your fitness and health goals. These recipes are NOT just for people dieting–these are for people who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and learn how to enjoy the foods they love without ousting anything from their diet.
My philosophy on food revolves around “moderation” being key, and not depriving yourself of things you want. I believe that allowing yourself to enjoy the foods you crave is essential to prevent overindulging. The problem is that most of us don’t truly practice “moderation.” Eating out once a week used to be “moderate,” but for many dining out daily is now the norm. I live in NYC and am a huge foodie, so I of course love to indulge in a not-so-light-meal every once in a while–which is all the more reason why I choose to cook HEALTHY when I’m at home. My recipes are lighter than their origins, meaning they are lower in fat, calories and carbs, and higher in protein and overall nutrition. Take a look around the site and find some recipes you’d like to try! They’re all easy, and I’m a busy girl so most are quick to make!
