One of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2015 was to watch at least one documentary every month. I wrote them all down in the back of my planner, and thought it would be cool to share them all with you, and rate each one on a scale from 1-10.
I’m hoping to do the same in 2016, it’s a great way to spend a little time each month educating yourself on different topics and information that’s out there.

The beauty of being a college student is never having a typical day, there’s always something different going on. But here is a fairly good representation of how I spend a day being a dietetics student!
On Tuesday and Thursdays I have three classes, the first one at 8:00am. Now that I’m a senior in college, I’ve lowered my getting ready time to about twenty minutes. I set everything out the night before, so all I have to do is get up, wash my face, get dressed, make coffee, and head out the door! I drive to school, so I have to give myself at least 20 minutes to drive, park, and walk to class. My alarm goes off at 7:10, and by 7:30 I’m leaving with hot coffee in my hand.
What a beautiful Saturday we had up on the mountain! Clear skies, a light breeze, and sunshine! My morning started off with a classic Samantha breakfast.. two slices of Ezekiel bread, one with peanut butter the other with blueberry jelly, a banana, and a cup of coffee. I added some almond milk and a few drops of stevia into my coffee, not sure why I’m still into the almond milk in my coffee considering I’ve been a die hard black coffee girl for the past six years. But maybe times are changing in my morning coffee mug.
After breakfast, I headed over the the farmer’s market to help our dietetics club table. We were there promoting local food, as well as sharing the volunteer work our club is doing throughout the community. It was fun getting to people watch, and listen to the beautiful music that is always playing throughout the market. While there, I bought and munched on some yummy kale!
It’s been too long since I’ve posted a What I Eat In A Day, have you missed them? Today was filled with delicious food, so hopefully it’ll make up for not posting one in a while.
The morning started off with my typical breakfast of 2 slices of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and molasses and jelly. I paired it with a banana and mug of coffee. Does anyone recognize my mug from a certain TV show??
After breakfast, I headed over the The Children’s Playhouse to give a Kids Can Cook lesson. This semester, I’ve been giving monthly cooking classes for a local children’s museum. Last month, we made green smoothies and this month we made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies (that were also vegan!). The kids are pretty young, so it’s a little difficult to make lessons that are extremely simple and hands on. Cookies were perfect because they got to touch the flour, oats, and sugar. Also mixing batter is always fun! They turned out great, and the kids all seemed to love them!
Today, I started the morning off with the last of my orange juice. Perks of living on my own: getting to drink straight out of the bottle!
While my bread was toasting, and water was brewing for my coffee I had a few sprays of my B-12 supplement and ate half of a Brazil nut as a selenium supplement. Did you know that one Brazil nut has your daily dose of selenium?! Pretty cool!
