Homemade Breakfast Bars

I have mentioned before on the blog that I am a morning person. It doesn’t necessarily mean I always like waking up, but once I’m up I’m awake. I usually have enough time in the morning to make something like oatmeal, eggs, or a smoothie and enjoy it for five minutes. However, sometimes I’m running […]

Baked Oatmeal

I made baked oatmeal muffins today. A lot of them. The recipe called for and outcome of eighteen muffins and I ended up with 30. Oh darn. ūüôā I topped them with chia seeds, flax seeds, walnuts, raisins, and chocolate. Naturally, I had two chocolate muffins after dinner. They aren’t very sweet but they will […]

Oatmeal Overview

Remember how I told you I was going to learn to like oatmeal? Well, after many experiments I think I will finally be able to incorporate it in my daily diet. [In no specific order, just the order that I ate them.] Banana Oatmeal The verdict?¬†Not my favorite. I discovered I cannot do hot bananas. […]

In Need of Energy.

Somedays, you just need a little extra something to get your day started. This week, the only motivating force that got me out of bed every morning was the thought of an energizing breakfast (okay and that it was one day closer to graduation). 3 egg whites,¬†1 egg yolk with¬†saut√©ed mushrooms, squash, and zucchini + […]

I know, I know, pretty much every blogger has¬†their different version of overnight oats in a jar [OIAJ]. But, you have yet to see the best. one. ever! (Okay, that’s probably a lie…I have seen some pretty stellar versions.) Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats ¬†1/3 cup oats 1/3 cup yogurt (plain, or sweetened) 1/3 cup milk […]

Self and Salad Love

I love taking care of my body. Now that I know how to properly fuel and take care of my body, life is so much more fun! The feeling of getting a cold and planning what tea to drink and how to fuel up on the Vitamin C. It’s almost like a challenge- how fast […]

Pancake Saturday.

All I could think about this morning as a woke up (from a dream that my car broke down in a very creepy neighbourhood) was pancakes. Not fancy pancakes with all the fixin’s, but good old maple syrup covered pancakes. I¬†halfed this recipe.¬† And please, if your going to eat¬†pancakes, consume¬†them properly. It’s not pancake¬†Saturday […]

Holiday Breakfast

Happy Christmas Adam! I started the day off with a nice sweaty workout {30 mins on elliptical and 15 mins on stationary bike}. I’m taking a break from the gym till Monday or Tuesday and will be fully enjoying “a break” for the holidays. Plus, we most likely will go on a walk to check […]

Sick Food.

Sometimes when I get sick, I have unusual cravings. My snacks get a little weird…. 2 hard-boiled eggs + 2 clementines Oh well,¬†to each his own! Anyways, I can¬†feel those clementines fighting off¬†my cold. Today’s to-do list includes: Catching up with a friend at Starbucks (caramel latte?! yes.) and seeing The Help, for the 3rd […]

Break Time.

It’s finally here! My first official day of Christmas break starts today, and I celebrated by turning this… Into¬†a perfect Christmas breakfast…. Unfortunately¬†I¬†started getting a cold the last day of school and¬†it¬†hasn’t been the best start to break. However, it gives me a great¬†excuse to¬†cook¬†warm food, read books (that aren’t for school!), and lie around […]
