What I Eat In A Day | January 7, 2016

There is no better way to start back to blogging than with a What I Eat In A Day post!

For breakfast, I tried out something new and LOVED it! I toasted an Ezekiel English muffin with vegan Chao cheese, sautéed tempeh, spinach, avocado, and some sweet sriacha on top. The flavors were incredible, and it was a great way to start the morning with something savory rather than something sweet. I paired it with a glass of orange juice and black coffee.

A few hours later I fixed a plate of bowtie pasta with marinara sauce and broccoli. I started reading Dr. Greger’s new book titled How Not To Die and I’m loving it so far! Such amazing research and information all explained so it’s easy to understand.

After lunch I snacked on a delicious homemade vegan cookie. You can find the recipe here , I added walnuts and coconut in mine and used whole wheat and all purpose flour rather than gluten free flour. They turned out great!

What I Eat In A Day | October 10, 2015

It seems like it’s been a while since my last What I Eat In A Day post, but I guess I can attribute that to tests, papers, and school-related responsibilities. But I’m back with a pretty epic day of food (and drinks!) so hopefully this will make up for it!

This morning, I started off with..you guessed it..two slices of Ezekiel toast and a banana. I ran out of peanut butter, so I’ve been using Earth Balance spread on one slice, and blackberry jelly on the other. I of course paired it all with a warm cup of black coffee.

After breakfast I headed over to our dietetic club’s garden spot at the community garden. The garden spot is such a cool place, because it’s a great escape for all of us stressed out students. Our club tries to get a few people together once a week to weed, water, plant, harvest, etc. and keep the garden up and running. We donate all the food we make to Hospitality House. The Hospitality House is an incredible organization that helps the homeless and those in crisis rebuild and get full care and attention.

Day In The Life Of A Dietetics Student | September 24, 2015

A fellow blogger and nutrition major that I am obsessed with just wrote a “Day In The Life Of A Dietetics Student” blog post, and it inspired me to do the same!

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 I Eat In A Day | August 30, 2015

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! IMG_9761

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!

Next up in my breakfast making routine is brewing my coffee. Once I pour the hot water into my French press, I let it sit for about 5 minutes which takes lots of patience!IMG_9762 Continue reading “What I Eat In A Day | August 30, 2015”

What I Eat In A Day | August 22, 2015

For breakfast, guess what I had…? You probably guessed right, two slices of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and jelly with a side of fruit (two peaches, and a banana). For my coffee, I added in some almond milk and a few drops of liquid stevia. I am usually a black coffee drinker, but lately I’ve been enjoying adding a little almond milk into my coffee.

An hour or two after breakfast, I went to a few thrift stores around town. I absolutely love to go thrifting on a Saturday afternoon, because you never know what you’ll find! Also, who can beat clothes for less than a dollar?!
