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.

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.
