Happy Martin Luther King Day! 😀
With today being my very last day of winter vacation, and tomorrow being the first day of my last semester (ahhh!!!) I wanted to have the most laid-back and relaxed morning possible. A big bowl of a yogurt mess was exactly what I was in the mood for…
- 6-oz. plain, nonfat yogurt
- 2 T. crushed flax
- 1 c. kashi heart to heart
- 1 banana, sliced
- 2 T. almonds
- 1/2 a whole wheat ‘n’ raisin muffin
Very crunchy. Very delicious. 😀
After a morning cup of coffee and cracking down on some more internship stuff, I grabbed a snack and decided to head out for a run. I was doubtful of how far I would actually make it, based on the 5 inches of snow and slush. But once I was out, I just wanted to keep running. I took advantage of it, since the new school week can sometimes drain me of motivation and energy. May as well kick it into high gear when I’m feeling upbeat and energetic! 😉
When I came home from a 6-mile run, I grabbed some water and an apple to rehydrate. 😀
The star of today’s lunch were the roasted beets sitting on top. One bite, and I was immediately taken back to autumn’s harvest. Mmmm…bliss. So earthy. Also included in the salad:
- mesculin greens, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, orange bell peppers, black olives, broccoli, cauliflower, red onions, and 1/2 c. black beans.
- dressing: 1 tsp each of olive oil, balsamic, and orange juice + garlic powder and dry mustard.
+ kashis on the side. Haven’t had these in forever!
Mom and I managed to sneak in an afternoon 3-mile walk just as the sun started to peak out. It even reached 40 degrees! Obviously, it would have been just wrong not to enjoy some sunshine. 😉
Afterwards, I was off to Nicole’s house for a quick drive-by visit. I can’t get over how adorable the house is. Already it’s beginning to feel more and more like their home, as they add their own personal touches. It was fun stopping by for a quick “hello.”
Once home, out came the mixed nuts, while I prepared dinner…
This is not a repeat picture.
But this is a repeat dinner.
What’s a girl to do with a big bowl of leftovers in the fridge? I hate wasting things, and will do just about anything to avoid it. Hence the grilled cheese…
And the last of the vegetable chowder. At least the leftovers tasted amazing. 😉
I snatched a peice of Endangered Species Chocolate ‘n’ Peanut Butter for dessert. I’m still having the same feelings as originally. Tasty and sweet, but no hint of peanut butter!
Current favorite night-time snack: cottage cheese with 1/2 a whole wheat pumpkin ‘n’ raisin muffin with a pat of peanut butter. Never gets old!
Here’s a call for help:
I need ideas on healthy, nutritious, and easy lunch ideas!! Unfortunetly, I have a few requirements, but if you’re willing to help a girl out, I could use some of your creative juices to help me think of some school lunches! 😀
Here are the requirements!
- Easily transportable without needing to be chilled.
- Mostly stays quiet when you eat it.
- Doesn’t smell funny (for the sake of fellow classmates 😉 )
Any ideas? 😀
