WIAW-Convenience is Key

by admin on November 28, 2012

good morning!

happy WIAW!

Remember me? I warned you that blogging these next couple of weeks is not going to be as consistent as normal because finals are coming up and it doesn’t leave much time for blogging:(

But these past few days I haven’t really had an excuse other than laziness and not having anything too exciting to blog about :/

I hope you’ll forgive me! Anyways, onto yesterday’s eats!


I figured out the trick to making plain greek yogurt taste like Trader Joes pumpkin greek yogurt. 1 cup plain greek yogurt mixed with 1 tbsp trader joes pumpkin butter. i know I’m a genius…did I mention that I packed 2 jars of Trader Joes pumpkin butter in my suitcase…

So breakfast was a simple pumpkin yogurt bowl with a banana and cinnamon..yum!


I was seriously lacking greens in yesterday’s lunch

I made a wrap with chicken, hummus, avocado, and a little mozzarella cheese. And had an orange along side..nothing too exciting but still tasted delicious

Work Out

I got out of class early so I ended up doing 30 minutes on the eliptical before jazz dance class. I know people might think “why would you work out before an hour of jazz dance class?” well let’s just say its a beginner dance class and I don’t really break a sweat at all haha


I was going to have a healthy snack of cottage cheese and tomatoes, but then all I wanted was some hot chocolate..so hot chocolate was what I decided to have!

I bought swiss miss sugar free hot chocolate packets so I had one of those mixed with water and heated up in the microwave..I was a little worried about the sugar free tasting bad but it actually tasted really good. And I was freezing after walking home from the gym so the warm cocoa was necessary :)

i also had pretzels (that handful times 2). Side note I’m obsessed with shirts that have thumbholes..I kind of wish all my long sleeve shirts had them!


so this totally is not what I had for dinner last night. I went out to dinner with my friend Amanda at homegrown and got a cup of chili and a salad. But failed to take pictures so instead I’ll show you what I had for dinner Monday night!

Between Molly (my roommate) and I, we managed to bring back lots of goodies (meaning food) from being home for thanksgiving. Molly brought back some shrimp her mom made so I sauteed up some red pepper, mushrooms, garlic, and spinach and combined that with the shrimp, brown rice, and a little parmesan cheese. So good! convenient and delicious!


I failed to take pictures of my dinner but I did take a picture of my fro yo :)

I just got a little bit of coffee with a mix of chocolate toppings :) The mini chocolate covered pretzels are the best! Its never too cold out for fro yo in my opinion…but the cold weather definitely makes me forget about wanting fro yo..this is the first time I’ve had it in a while

A while being like..3 weeks. HAH


Time to go to class

have a great day everyone!


Question for ya!: What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recently?

Love your hot chocolate mug! I finally got TJ’s pumpkin yogurt while I was at home…it’s so good. I’ll definitely have to craft up some of my own with pumpkin butter when I run out!

I have really been wanting to try pumpkin Greek yogurt but have yet to find any around here…now I know the trick! ;)

I also use the sugar free hot cocoa packets but I mix it in unsweetened almond milk instead of water and I add in a packet of Truvia. It sure tastes gooood!

That chicken wrap looks so good! I just wrote about how I’ll always eat frozen desserts, even when it’s cold out…great minds think alike! ;-)

Those wraps you make always look so yummy! I wish I had a panini press! Now that I’m not in college anymore its not socially acceptable to eat froyo as often, so I really miss froyo. Those M&Ms and oreo bits and the coconut, I’m kinda drooling… I miss YoloBerry (our local one at school)!

aw man! if you try mixing plain greek yogurt with canned pumpkin, a little sweetner, and some cinnamon it will definitely taste similar!
