My high school has a program called Senior Options, where students work at an internship during their final two months instead of sitting in class. Silly me chose an internship that is an hour and a half away, and as a result, portable breakfasts have become necessary. There is always a degree of tediousness associated with to-go meal prep. Having to leave my house at … Continue reading Recipe: Berry Chia Coconut Yogurt Bowl
Hello everyone! This post is a day late… Funny story about that. Some background: I am a crazy planner. I plan literally everything. I have planned my meals for all of April 1st, 2017. So, on Sunday when my afternoon was packed with homework I had little interest in doing, I put off things I knew I would enjoy doing for later- my english homework … Continue reading March 20th, 2017 Updates
I try and plan my weekends so that Sunday afternoons are the least stressful parts, but somehow that never works. It is 4 PM, and I sit here, eating Teddie peanut butter from the jar with a spoon, blogging instead of completing my other 100 assignments. Maybe one day I will learn to actually do my work earlier on. Anyway, as I trek through the … Continue reading Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothies!
Hi everyone! Happy February! As many of you know, I care a lot about food sourcing and food’s general purpose in life. Food gives us energy, and allows us to function, thrive, and progress as a species. However, the number of misconceptions that surround food is astronomical, and a couple of blog posts probably won’t change that. Many family members and friends have recently been … Continue reading February Announcement
Martha Stewart is one of three of my female role models. I know- she went to prison. But in my world, anything Martha Stewart does is justifiable (even insider trading) because her cakes, cards, and website are beautifully orderly. When Martha Stewart declared that the dish of 2016 was the bowl, I had to understand why. I started eating in bowls more, and even went … Continue reading Winter Bowls
8:34 PM- Sunday, December 18th I have been a bad blogger. My last post was what… 2 weeks ago? For this, I am sorry. But, while I have been writing on other domains, some amazing things have been happening. Christmas is in 7 days!!!! Every year, Christmas is that one day where good work, kindness, and love are reality rather than expectations. But this year … Continue reading Getting into the Christmas Spirit + Recipes
Yes, I admit the title of this post is very unoriginal… I am just so excited to write about the best concoction in the world! For all of history, humans have tried to make the perfect drink. The French gave us champagne, some Middle Eastern nation gave us mango juice, and Americans gave us coke (and heart disease, thank you very much). Clearly, the past … Continue reading Christmas Green Juice!
It’s that time of year again. The wind is blowing. The leaves are red. Starbucks is trying to market sugary water as pumpkin. Fall has arrived. Whether you’re in the camp that screams, “No, Mother Nature! Give me back flip flops and sunburn now!” or the one that sort of mumbles, “Oh I love fall. I can deny my work, lie in bed, and learn the … Continue reading Pumpkin Bread!
Confession: I am sort of addicted to Peanut Butter & Jelly (preserves sweetened with white grape juice, to be precise). Put the two in a sandwich and I’m sold. Add a little twist and incorporate them in a smoothie, ice cream, or energy balls and my peanut butter jelly-o-meter goes out of control! Growing up, I hated jelly! So everyday for lunch I had a peanut butter … Continue reading The Perfect PB&J
Oatmeal is probably my favorite breakfast. I don’t know if the oats are really the best part though. Continue reading Oatmeal for every season
