Dorm Dining: Spaghetti Squash

The roommates like to tease me about my kitchen concoctions. Quinoa was introduced to their vocabulary this past month and they had a hard time believing that it is a “protein-packed grain that dates back to the Indians.” Man, sometimes I really really really wish I was a Nutrition and Dietetics major…darn Chemistry classes. Anyways, […]

Homemade {Healthy} Hot Chocolate

After trying many, many times to make my own hot chocolate and utterly failing (unsweetened cocoa is bitter) I have finally found the perfect blend. Not to mention it consists of only two ingredients and no added sugar. I really encourage you to try this recipe as store bought hot chocolate “powders” are loaded with […]

Fudgy Almond Joy Protein Cake adapted from SmoothieGirlEatsToo serves one hungry person Two egg whites 3 TBS unsweetened […]

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 sautéed mushrooms, squash, and zucchini + […]
