I must say this every week but wow, another week of Summer down. They are dropping like flies! My days of relaxation and no schedules are quickly dwindling down but that’s okay; college presents a lot to look forward to!
Speaking of college, I have been thinking about how different things are going to be, food-wise, living in a dorm room. I am so used to having a fully stocked kitchen available to me 24/7. I can make whatever I want, whenever I want. Need the oven to bake some muffins? Done. Want to cook up a stir-fry on the stovetop? Easy. This is most definitely NOT going to be the case in a month from now. I will have a microwave and a mini fridge. And the university dining hall. And Chipotle. Mmmm, Chipotle. Maybe this won’t be so bad after all. But I’m going to need to come up with some solid food staples that will work with my new situation. Sure it will take some getting used to, but I know it will work out just fine and plus it’s only temporary.
College people: what are your staples for food?
Breakfast this morning~
1/2 cup oatbran, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup egg whites, splash of almond milk, cinnamon, ginger, maple extract. Topped with cashew protein frosting (1 tbsp cashew butter + 1 scoop sun warrior protein + almond milk) Strawb for decoration.
Adding the nut butter to the frosting takes it to a whole new level!
I’m still drinking shakes like nobody’s business. Gotta beat the heat!
I tried two new recipes from Blog Land that I really liked!
First up, there was some Tone It Up protein salad that I saw on Christina’s blog:
It was a fun way to change up my usual veggies! It is perfect for Summer, too because it is cold and light. I had mine with some wild rice and topped everything with gauc and fresh salsa post-picture.
Then for dessert, I made a personal protein cake:
YUM! This baby is BIG, aka Kristi Size. The wheat bran bulks it up nicely. This was awesome all by itself, but even more amazing after some toppings: Marantha organic peanut butter (my new favorite!) and blended silken tofu cream.
Currently, I am in a major state of DOMS. I lifted upper body yesterday and really tried to go heavy. Well, apparently it worked. Anyone available and willing to give me a massage? I will pay in the form of delicious food.
Today is just going to be a bit of cardio and I’m actually craving the dreadmill workout I made last week. Who am I turning into?! I’m sure it won’t last long, but might as well take advantage while it lasts!
Happy Monday to you all!
