Hello friends! It’s Advent season, finals are steadily approaching; soon it will be a new year, a new semester. I’ve been feeling a little harried lately–like I’m busy, but not quite sure what’s going on at the same time. But I’m taking a break this evening to sip some peppermint cinnamon tea and share my eats as of late.
Since I’ve been at college, my food photos have dwindled down to a bare minimum. The ones I do happen to take aren’t in the best lighting. I don’t make chocolate smoothies all the time. Or banana bread yogurt bowls (if you happened to see any of my posts from the summer, you’ll know that I made, photographed, and ate one nearly every day). Which I suppose is to be expected. I’m settling (maybe even settled?) into a new routine in a new place. A new routine which does not include a green smoothie in the morning. Because the new place does not include a Vitamix. Or a surplus of kale.
Nevertheless, here are few of my eats as of late. Because life’s not all about pretty pictures of green smoothies and avo toast, right?
I’ve been on a serious omelet kick the last week or so. With all the vegetables and lots of cheese, obviously.
A banana eaten mid-morning one day. I promise my desk is never as disastrous as it looks in this picture. I don’t know why I had so many cords everywhere.
Salad game still going strong. Although I can’t remember if there was even lettuce in this. Doesn’t look like it. But winter (or almost winter) is a good time for lettuce-less salads. What’s your opinion? Can it be a salad without lettuce?
One morning I did not have an omelet, so I had oatmeal (shocker). With an apple. And cottage cheese and some turkey because I knew I’d need lots of protein to make it till lunch.
My mom sent me a few packages of these lentils. This was my first time trying them. I ate them mid-morning between classes when I arrived back to my room hangry and unable to do anything before eating something. I’m a fan. Great for dorm-dwellers and busy people.
And I’ll close with a picture of this cookie. My discipleship group leader brought some to share at our last meeting. They’re called Berger cookies and apparently they’re a Baltimore speciality. I’d never even heard of them before. But look at the fudge-cookie ratio. Ten out of ten would eat again.
That’s it for now! Now tell me all about YOU–how’s your week been? Up to anything fun this weekend?
