Update: I’m Alive

As you may have noticed, I took a much needed…yet longer than expected hiatus from blogging. With nutrition club responsibilities, final projects, a brutal final’s week, taking the GRE, and a busy holiday season, blogging unfortunately got pushed to the back burner for a while.

But I think I’ve given myself a long enough break, because I’m ready to get back to blogging about food, recipes, and all things nutrition and health!

A little update on the past three months…

Traveled to the beach, and the mountains over fall break..

Spring Rolls | Veganized

What I Eat In A Day

Today started off at 9:45am with breakfast being an Ezekiel English Muffin with one half of it spread with peanut butter, and the other a strawberry jelly from Trader Joe’s (sweetened with fruit juice!). I also had a bowl of fruit: a banana, strawberries, and cantaloupe. Of course a cup of black coffee was served along side it all!
