It’s never too late to start working on [your diet]. It starts off with something simple like kicking soda or cutting back on the Oreos. You just start to feel better a little at a time and go from there!

fajita-taco-wrap bean mashup.
Episode 2 of cheap, fast, bangin' skate food is here! This time we're going Mexican and preparing some wraps filled with a classic bean mix and guacamole filling.
It can be easy to make Mexican food unhealthy depending on what ingredients you use, but this recipe holds it down in the healthy category whilst still having that junk food vibe about it. It takes about 20 minutes to prepare and it's perfect to take on long sessions or just to eat at home.
what you're going to need.
All the ingredients in this recipe are pretty basic and used in a load of different recipes. To keep this plate healthy make sure you go for extra-virgin olive oil instead of unhealthy, processed fats like sunflower or canola oil. Also try and get fresh wraps that are GMO free, and without a load of extra shit added. Try and get some with an ingredient list as close to just "corn, water, and salt," if possible (or even make them yourself).
- 2 carrots
- 1 onion
- 1 clove of garlic
- extra virgin olive oil
- 400g tin of kidney beans
- 1 red pepper
- 2 avocados
- a handful of fresh coriander
- ½ a lemon
- 1 chile
- 1 tsp of oregano
- 1 tsp of cumin
how to prepare the platter.
1. prepare the carrots
Grate the carrots into a pan that's on a medium heat.
Add a splash of extra virgin olive oil and salt and mix them in good.
Keep your eye on the carrots because they can burn pretty quickly. Make sure you're mixing them constantly. You know they're done when they start to go brown and smell a little nutty.
2. fry the onions, garlic, & chilli
Heat up a frying pan to a medium heat whilst cutting the onion into thin slices, and the garlic and chilli into small pieces.
Get some extra virgin olive oil in your pan and throw everything in.
Once the onions and garlic have been cooking a few minutes, add in about 1 teaspoon of oregano and 1 teaspoon of cumin. Mix everything in good.
Chop up the pepper into thin strips and once they onions and garlic turn golden brown add them into the pan.
3. prepare ya guac
It's probably about time to remove the carrots from the heat now, so if they're done leave them on the side.
To make the guacamole, mash up the avocados into a separate bowl.
Cut up the coriander into tiny pieces and add to the bowl.
Squeeze half a lemon into the bowl and add a sprinkle of salt.
Mix everything up.
4. add the carrots and beans
Rinse the kidney beans well and add them into the mix along with the carrots.
Mix everything in good and turn the heat down to a low-medium heat.
5. prepare the tortillas
Get your favourite towel and place it on the kitchen surface - the towel is essential because it keeps the wraps humid which makes them flexible.
Get the pan you used for the carrots and place it on a high heat.
Cook each side of each tortilla for about 10 seconds (or whatever it says on the packet).
Make a stack of tortillas in the towel and wrap them up good. Make sure you cover up the stack whilst you're cooking the next tortilla to keep them warm.
6. insert into face
To prepare your wraps, wack a spoon of guacamole in the middle of a wrap, and add some bean mixture.
Add any other salsas you want, like spicy sauce or whatever.
Fold each side of the tortilla together and tuck in one end (so it doesn't all fall out.
Insert into face.
