Happy April, everyone!
And even better - happy Wednesday!
Wow, I used to think Wednesdays were a pretty icky day of the week, but I'm a fan now (not just because of WIAW, but it helps). Without further ado, some spring break eats (not having the meal plan for those few days when I was back on campus early - for ICKICKEWEW orgo midterm review - was awesome):
As always, this is not a comprehensive view of everything and anything that I ate. It's just an overview of the rough idea. Un-photographed eating happens. :)
(not) Reese's chia pudding! I've never had chia pudding before (or chia seeds, at all), so I was nervous...
...but unwarrantedly so! It was absolutely delicious and *such* a filling breakfast. Want the recipe? SOOOO good, SOOOO easy. Oatmeal is so last season. :P Especially when you top this tapioca pudding-esque bowl with frozen berries.
Aren't those the cutest? Whole Foods is awesome. Their prices? Not so much.
FAGE GREEK YOGURT, get in my stomach! I missed greek yogurt so bad.
And y'all know I love Quest Bars. Cinnamon roll didn't disappoint! Sweet, buttery goodness (but, as always, crazy awesome nutritional stats, like 20g of protein and 2g of sugar...BOOYA).
And that texture - nomnomnom to my chewy, chewy
My mom bought me yummy chocolate over break! I LOVE HER. Best mom ever.
I got some coupons to try Dr. Praeger's stuff, so I hurried over to Whole Foods (let's face it, I'll take any excuse thrown my way) and picked up a box of California Veggie Burgers. I wasn't really expecting much, because I've had veggie burgers at school and, quite frankly, I'm not a huge fan of those fake meats that don't really look or taste like anything.
If I wanted to eat meat, I would. The point is, I don't. I just don't like it.
This is SO not a meat wannabe, guys! Do you see all those veggies? I think the moment that I got really excited was when I opened the box and saw that the veggie burger was green.
PROUD TO BE GREEN, GUYS.
It's super juicy and flavorful and not at all meaty - sooooo much better! They also obviously knew what they were doing with the spices. This is the kind of crave-worthy veggie burger that carnivores will fight you for. Not kidding.
Anyone else find Amazing Grass addicting? Or is that just me?
CEREAL. On cottage cheese. 'Nuff said.
FROZEN BERRIES FOR THE WIN.
Wait - HOLD ON. That flavor doesn't exist. Right?
Except it does.
Gnu Foods just came out with three new flavors of Flavor&Fiber bars! And they were nice enough to let me try them! First up - Carrot Cake (yes, that sounds like a very good idea).
I like how all 8g of sugar are naturally occurring fruit sugars. Thanks for making a bar that's good for me!
AND DELICIOUS. It actually tastes like carrot cake. I didn't believe it, but then - oh YUM. The walnuts add that extra legitimacy.
TWO THUMBS UP.
I have no idea why I'm in such a capital letters kind of mood today. It must be all the good food. Sorry, guys! :P
