Weighty Issues

It’s been a while since I’ve made stove top oats.  I was so excited to combine: 1 cup of water 1/2 cup of oatmeal 1 tablespoon of cinnamon 1 cup of frozen blackberries 1 spoonful of peanut butter I couldn’t ask for a better breakfast!  I ate lunch around 11 because I was going to [...]

Skidmore vs. UMass Boston

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed cupcake t-shirt?  Thank you Johnny Cupcakes!   How awesome is a pepperoni pizza in the shape of a cupcake?!?!  I actually bought this shirt when JC hosted a movie night in Coolidge Corner. I made Pacific Natural Foods’ spicy black bean soup and added a dollop of plain Chobani (sunk to [...]

My Bright Smile

I scarfed down the last of my tomato soup (and an unphotographed banana) before hopping in the car and driving 1 hour to get to the dentist. I love hanging out at Blackstone Valley Dental.  My mom and my cousin (Hi Steph!!!) were both working so I chatted with them before getting my tooth fixed. [...]

If it Ain’t Broken

Then Don’t Fix It! My soup and grilled cheese was so tasty that I knew it would be on the menu again today.  I wasn’t in the mood to mess with a good thing! But first, there was breakfast… I had a bowl of Special K with Red Berries. I would love to follow the [...]

Soupy Sandwich

I thought ahead and put this lunch together when I was cooking last night.  The leftovers didn’t disappoint.  Gnocchetti with green peppers and tofu. I was feeling feverish and still dealing with a sore throat so I walked on the treadmill instead of running.  I did crank up the incline and felt like I still [...]

And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare” -A Christmas Story I snacked on a green apple not long after I ate my lunch. My closet light burned out so I did [...]

Stir Crazy

Fun Holiday Movie Quote: “Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not [...]

You’re a Star (Market)

I snacked on a Gala apple around 10:30. I had a bowl of Trader Joe’s pesto tortellini around noon. I forgot my gym bag so I decided to make today about relaxation and sweatin’ it out.  I sat in the sauna for 20 minutes and then showered.  With my gym bag at home, I didn’t [...]

A to Z

I ate several small random snacks throughout the day.  I probably didn’t eat enough but I never got really hungry because I drank a lot of coffee this morning.  (1st snack was an un-photographed bagel chips with Laughing Cow cheese) From an Apple… To a Z bar!!! I almost skipped the gym today so I [...]
