Well, I don’t have much to say tonight, so I am just doing a photo round-up of pictures from my phone from the past couple of days.
These are peanut butter brownies I made Super Bowl night as a late birthday treat for a friend. It is half plain brownies and the other half just has creamy peanut butter spread on top and decorated with M&M’s. I didn’t eat ANY (so proud of myself), but the whole container was devoured by college students watching the game in the common room within fifteen minutes, so I guess they liked them.
This was my “breakfast-to-go” this morning. The first picture makes the oatmeal look really bland and disgusting, but I actually have raisins and walnuts mixed in underneath, you just can’t see it. I also added the banana on top, as you can see in the second picture. I do this a lot when I get up late or don’t have much time to make it to class. I just fill a coffee cup with either oatmeal or yogurt and fruit and I sometimes take fruit in a Ziploc bag with me. I don’t like to miss breakfast because our cafeteria has “all you can eat” breakfast, so if you miss that, you have to pay more out of your food plan for lunch. It is kind of complicated, but nonetheless, I like to eat a big healthy breakfast. Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day, though half of my family doesn’t like breakfast foods at all, so I grew up used to not eating any breakfast as a way to “save calories”. I have found that actually eating majority of my calories in the morning for breakfast has had positive effects on my health and weight-loss.
Just another picture of part of breakfast. I absolutely love the salad bar full of fruit in the morning!
