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.



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



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

Have an ice day!

Can I just say that I am SO in love with the comments? It’s definitely getting repetitious but I can’t help it. LOVELOVELOVELOVE.

Back to business.

Rider has become quite the snow wonderland since I’ve been back. Classes yesterday were canceled AND classes today were canceled. Granted, I don’t mind but this is quite the ironic situation because this exact thing happened two years ago. Rider history likes to repeat itself.

Check out how beautiful my campus looks though!

You can be jealous. It’s cool 😉

Snow days noms.

Reused coffee cup with the following:

  • Half a banana
  • 2 tsp AB
  • 1/4 cup chocolate Chex
  • 1/2 cup plain Chobani
  • 1 tbsp Special K granola

I love the part when I get to go to town and mash everything together. Roomie commented that I was going a little overboard… sorry, I just have a lot of feelings.

Mean Girls reference. For.The.Win.


A pile of baby carrots (nice and mushy!), sliced tomatoes, hummus, a hidden veggie burger and sauteed peppers. It’s lacking the green, I’m not digging that!

So yes, Dalys food has become my source of nourishment once again. Let me show you!

The dining hall is a tricky mistress but if you try hard enough good food CAN be obtained. The more colors your dish has, chances are the nutritional value will be higher. I also try to go for staples in the protein/dairy/carb departments. Grilled chicken, veggie burgers, whole wheat bread, feta cheese and lots of hummus!

Another tip is to take the time to look around and see what the place has to offer. For instance, Dalys has two salad bars that are always stocked with quinoa! Instant positive protein choice right there. I think the idea of trying is what discourages people but it’s definitely worth it. I have the utmost faith in everyone! 😀

To be honest though, room breakfasts are not the same without my oats.

It’s still pretty but I miss oatmeal desperately. In the bowl:

  • Cut up apple microwaved with cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup plain Chobani
  • 1/2 cup crushed up Quaker Oats Squares (FINALLY finished the box!)
  • 1 tbsp granola
  • 1 tbsp honey peanut butter

You’ll do breakfast, you’ll do. Well, at least for now.

Oh look, it’s time for me to go dinner! Funny how that works out. My next post is going to include my ramblings about my FOOD WRITING class! So until then…. enjoy the rest of the day everyone!
