On location!

Holaaaa! Thanks so much for the well wishes my lovely lovely blog peeps. I’m feeling about 99% better and my cough is next to being completely gone so take that sickness! Healthy will always prevail in the end… like justice!

 

Anyway, my Intro. to American Studies class was canceled so I’m sitting in Cranberrys blog reading (so Google Reader will stop SCREAMING at me) I just ate this because I almost chewed my arm off

Incorrectly rotated picture is incorrect.

 

I don’t remember ever having had this flavor before but it tasted like an oatmeal raisin cookie with frosting. Oatmeal raisin cookies aren’t suppose to have frosting… are they? Either way, all my appendages are still in tact and there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with anything covered in frosting so I’d call this one a win.

 

 

Sidenote: I got the Photobucket app for my Itouch and that is the ONLY reason that I’m able to blog right now. Cord free is the way to be!

 

 

That’s not how that phrase goes.

 

 

……it’s not?

 

 

Oh. I see. Good job Ninja Turtles, way to have positive morals.

 

 

Moving on. Yesterday I had sushi for the first time in a while

A super basic spicy tuna roll. It was satisfactory at best. There was WAY too much white rice and slightly spice kick was no where to be tasted. I ended up using all the wasabi (something I never do) because I craved the heat so much. Sushi at Rider is a tricky mistress; the chances of getting it good aren’t exactly favorable. Oh well, live and learn!

 

Sometimes I talk to Kat about Greek food and then proceed to eat my body weight in hummus.

OK, not my body weight exactly but more hummus that usual. I ate ALL of it too and have a fear that Dalys is spoiling me into think I can eat unhealthy amounts of the stuff whenever I want. I’m not even going to think about what I’ll be like after a graduate….

 

 

“What do you MEAN this is all I get?!?! If you don’t give me more hummus I’m going to rip your heart out.”

 

 

 

Another incentive to get a good job.

 

 

 

Just realized that my incentives for making money are to support my hummus and nut butter habits. Somehow, I don’t think that’s normal.

 

 

Weekend wrap tradition! This guy bit the dust, so to speak. Overstuffing led to a pretty unpleasant crime scene. I’ll spare you the gruesome aftermath.

For the record, the cantaloop was not a component to the wrap. It just needed to sit there because I didn’t want to unnecessarily dirty another plate.

 

Insides:

  • Eggs
  • Spinach
  • Feta
  • Tomatoes
  • Slice of ham
  • Red peppers
  • Carrots
  • Mushrooms

 

Ahem.

Sorry to spring something so graphic on all of ya. Hope no one was too squeamish and if you were…..whoops! In all seriousness though, the wraps always taste delicious despite their not-so-lovely appearance. Although, doesn’t it look kind of like a bird sort of thing with it’s wings and all?  That makes it a little nicer to look at… right? ;)

 

I just realized that it hasn’t been a week since I last posted. WOO! I’ve got to head out (it’s finally time for lunch!) but within the next few posts I’ll be covering the following:

  • NEDAwareness week
  • My exercise as of lately
  • The film Food Inc. (just watched it in food writing)
  • ANOTHER new Chobani flavor

Repetitious but delicious

Good evening everyone! It’s a late kinda post but that’s how I roll sometimes. We’re heading out to pub night in a couple hours so I figured some blogging would be good!

Food wise, I’ve been getting a ton of fabulous pictures and have been tasting many a tasty things! Like my lunch yesterday for instance.

I was unable to resist getting another asian sesame chicken salad but instead opted for a small one instead. I’m SO going to be doing this from now on! There was so little dressing and TONS of oranges and it made me super happy.

It photographed VERY well, if I do say so myself

Whee!

I ate the Lunabar a little while later and, in case I never said this

Chocolate Peppermint Stick is one of my favorite flavors EVER. I never used to like the taste of peppermint but now? I’m in love.

Yay contrasting colors!

Fast forward through class and it was time for a quick dinner before Sam and I headed off to yoga.

It felt weird eating fruit with dinner, go figure. I had a sweet potato with black bean salsa, baby carrots, snap peas, pineapple and cantaloop. It was light enough but still was filling and energy inducing!

YOGA WAS GREAT. Let me give you some points as to why:

  • Although it was easier than last week, the poses were still great
  • We did warrior 1 and 2 AND triangle pose AND tree pose AND a lot more downward dogs! All my favorite poses!
  • I really do feel like my flexibility is getting better and I can’t help but be reallyyyy proud of myself for it
  • My hamstrings aren’t sore anymore. I am a full believer now that yoga is guarenteed to make anyone feel better
  • Sam loved the class too! I’m so glad she came with me and now we’re making it into a weekly thing. Yay!

My love for yoga is growing even more now and I honestly want to practice more times a week, even if it’s just in my room. Practice makes perfect!

Small snack post-yoga

Dates, Quaker Oats Squares and PB.

Today has been rainy and humid and very ick out. But alas, my food brightens up life as it should!

Breakfast:

Kashi, half a banana, some cranberries, a few pecans and vanilla soy milk. Simple and sweet.

I don’t know how often I’m going to be taking pictures of my lunches and dinners considering I get kind of repetitious with things.

Broccoli, string beans, sweet potato, carrots and a veggie burger topped with tomato. I don’t know if Rider makes their own veggie burgers or just uses already made ones but either way, they’re super good! Rice, corn, beans and a generally good flavor!

More class, blah blah blah

Sam found THIS outside of the Fine Arts building

Mini-strawberry! Awwww, so sweet.

There was a squash medley at dinner today! I LOVE squash medleys!

Derrrr, you can’t really see it but I swear it’s there. On the plate we had:

  • Carrots
  • Squash medley
  • Spinach
  • Peppers
  • A few mozzerella balls
  • Hummus
  • Tomatoes
  • A piece of grilled chicken

And with a slice of whole wheat bread to round it all out. Like I said, it’s going to get repetitous. I need to experiment more me thinks!

Also at dinner today, we were face with the puzzling question of what exactly THIS was:

Coloring and smell of an apple and feel of a nectarine. Odd. Kat cut it on open and we discovered this

A peach pit! The weird thing is though, this thing tasted like an apple mixed with a plum and a nectarine (if you can believe that!) Has Rider been accepting cross-bred food without our knowledge? Are we guineu pigs new hybrid fruit? Who knows. It was weird. Tasty, but weird.

Bah! It’s 8:35 and I have to start getting ready. There’s going to be many a picture taking from this night, I can tell you that much!

Have a lovely night! :D
