im back yall. woo hoo.
to be honest ive had a computer since monday
[ended up having to just buy a new one. so having
to wait the two weeks to see if my fatherman could
fix it was sort of for naught. cest la vie am i right?]
..but yeah. anyways. i just wasnt ready to get back
into the whole blogging thing. im still sort of not.
as in i havent been taking pictures of my eats. but
truuuuuuust me. ive been eating. in excess. yum!
obviously not a complete representation of what
i have been eating for the past two and a half or
so weeks but here are a few photos from when i
first stopped blogging and didnt know how long
my hiatus would be. lots and lots more peanut
butter. frozen yogurt. ice cream. cookies. etc etc.
also. nutritional things. in moderation of course. ;]
anyways. tonight and tomorrow are going to worktastical.
plan on regularly scheduled blogging to resume sunday. ish.
did you miss me?

seriously. its overrated.
so for my first late night snickysnack last night i decided to coordinate with my peanut butter.
cheerios. BANANAS. CHOCOLATE. soymilk. pbloco chocolatelybananapeanutbutter goodness! delicious. as i suspected it would be.
a bit later i was wanting some more munchcrunch action.
apples and hummus.
then i just went at the jar of peanut butter. at one point i stopped long enough to slather some on a sandwich thin with banana slices and make a legit snack out of it. but then i just went back to the spoon.
by the time my head hit the pillow last night a third of the jar was gone.
dayum. im very upset about this. but only because its not going to last long. boo.
i woke up this morning and thought it best to avoid the PEANUT butter.
aka GOOD MORNING BARNEY BUTTER. this was one of the free samples i got in the mail. it was pretty good. but not like drop your pants good. if it were available around here [its not] and were comparable to wherever nut butter i was fixin to buy [doubt it. homegirls on a budget.] id grab a jar. but i dont think id ever shell out the extra dollahs for shipping. not my style. anyways. soymilknaner oats. fone. cranberries. delicious as always.
then it was off for a funfilled morning of self-inflicted pain. i mean. class.
i made it home with enough time to pack up some grub and out the door i went. to the cupcake factory!
i didnt eat the pure protein bar. i did make myself an iced latte or two. and obviously there were nibbles. i mean come on. i work around cupcakes. chocolate. and gelato. thatd be tough even for someone with some level of restraint.
after work i was planning on going for a run but then my friend who just returned from NEW ZEALAND offered up dinner with her fam. they were going to biaggis which in my humble [im always right.] opinion is not that great. but who am i to turn down free food?
i had a snack first because i got off at six and was gettin hungry and dinner wasnt until sevenfifteen.
there must be some food that i ate that isnt orange..right? there might have been crackers too? okay. there definitely were.
anyways. no pictures from dinner. but i managed to eat a good portion of the big house salad for the table. drenched in dressing. not so fun. but whats a gal to do? for my entree of sorts i ordered the mediterranean pizza. it was a biggin. and i was good only ate half of it. [moderation!] but as soon as i got home i went into the kitchen to put it in the fridge and ended up polishing off the other half. [its overrated anyways.]
so thats where i be now. unrunned. overeatened. supah tired. cest la vie.
no big plans for the rest of the evening. maybe trying to figure out how im going to get out of these pants. perhaps ive been overcompensating for my running these past few weeks. oops. i guess that means ill just have to go shopping for new jeans. ;]
anyways. if anyone wants to come over and play scrabble that sounds pretty alright with me right about now. byopb. [though any nut butter will do.]
whats your favorite board game?
scrabble. for sure. though chutes and ladders is pretty legit too.

dude. why do all the attractive fellas gotta be tarlungs?
for reals. i saw several hecka fine [keep in mind..hormones]
gentlemen on my jaunt to class this afternoon and every
last one of the boneables was smoooking. gross gross gross.
ANOCHE [thats last night my amigos]:
megamunchfest last night. i managed to snap a couple pics but man oh man was much more consumed.
the lovely dani at foodshouldtastegood was nice enough to send me some chippies to try out for the blog. these olive chips werent my favorite. but i dont like olives. so ya know. they were still pretty alright all things considered. and they definitely satisfied my salt craving. [for a bit. some honeychipotlechip with cottagecheese action occurred later on in the evening.]
now for the good stuff:
mmm. so good. edys loaded butterfinger. cheerios. peanut butter. and a chocolate vitatop. need i say more?
this was my first experience with vitatops. i mean. it was good. but like. not OH MY GOD AMAZING. i had higher expectations. dont get me wrong the box will not last long but i dont quite see what all the fuss is about.
also. i polished off the rest of this beaut:
thanks again heather! youre a total gem.
i stayed up way too late last night piddling/munching my life away.
and stealing from my roommates bag of candy and such. oops.
all i can say is thank god i love to run.
i could NOT get out of bed this morning. which is totally fine since i dont have class until three on tuesday/thursdays. and i lack ambition.
then i started pondering breakfast and ZING what bed?
brace yourself. breakfast was a numbah one stunnah:
sweet wheat bagel. half with cottage cheese and some heated up frozen berries. the other half had a NEW peanut butter!!! and a few orange slices. totally hit the spot.
check out my new pal:
thanks to lovelies at pbloco this little buddy was the star of breakfast. mmmm. super sweet and artificial but so damn good. peanut butter. chocolate. bananas. how can you go wrong!?
then i crawled back into bed. but the stupid sun was shining all up in my business and making me feel guilty. ‘fiiiiiiiiiiiiiine sun. i will come suck you all up.’ aka i went for a splendid six mile run. it was great. i love being warm.
i should totally join in on lengs salad challenge. but im sure the second i commit ill run out of romaine. and i certainly cannot ahve that. plus im totally commitmentphobic. anyways. romaine. turkey. carrots. peppers. bbq/hummus/ricewinevinegar dressing of sorts. fone for CRUNCH. and apple wedges with cinnamon. i got mad love for cool crisp foods.
i was fixin to make some iced coffee to take to class. and i wanted some post lunch sweetness. aka i made my own little version of cocoa coffee. basically i just iced mine. and added a few glugs of soy milk since i dont do creamers and such. it was amazing. that bender knows whats up.
i brought along this larabar as well. PECAN PIE. i really liked it. which surprised me since pecans are probably my least favorite nut of sorts. and i dont like pie. bravo larabar. you done good. [thanks to my little lolita for sending me this little guy since i never would have opted to buy it for myself!]
class was pretty alright. except that it was sixty and sunny out. and the quad was covered with people laying around and playing frisbee and enjoying themselves. grrr. at least its supposed to be nice all day tomorrow. wait. i have class. class. class. and then straight to work. BUMMER.
i had some broccoli slaw in the fridge and i hadnt a clue what i wanted to do with it. but then i did have a clue! and then i had dinner.
i chopped up some orange pepper [my favorite!] and dug in the freezer for some corn and stirfried it all up with a few big handfuls of slaw and some shrimpalimp. the sauce/marinade/stirfrying liquid was a mishmosh: ricewinevinegar. teriyakisauce. honey. red pepper flakes. ginger powder. garlic powder. sesame oil. etc etc. super delicious. i had some kashi crackers on the side. im not sure why. it seemed like a good idea at the time. i have no regrets. also. the rest of my orange from breakfast. the little chinese restaurant back home always had orange slices along with the fortune cookies at the end and so i wanted to channel the goodness that is golden garden. [i did NOT eat that purple barrette. the orange hue was just too dominate and i was trying to make the bits of cabbage pop. awk since you cannot see a single piece of the cabbage action.]
i considered eating this with some chopsticks that i had lying around but i totally lack coordination [hello. why do you think im a runner?] and it would have taken longer than the three minutes in which i inhaled this delight. forker for life.
im already pondering dessert. mmm. decisions decisions.
whats your favorite nut?
does peanut butter count as a nut? ;]
i really like cashews. and almonds. and pistachios. and hazelnuts. [okay. so i like them all. but walnuts and pecans are on the lower end of the spectrum.]
and no preaching about how walnut and such arent really nuts because i say they are and thats whats up. kapeesh?
ALSO. check out honeynoneynuts giveaway. the survey takes like point two. help a college gal out will ya?

hello my little friends.
thanks so much for all your lovely comments
about my run. it was amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing.
and yesterday was fabulous as well. i ate so much.
the funny thing is that i didnt eat a lot when i was
celebrating the holiday and such. but between the
easter candy throughout the day and my mondo
attack of the cabinets once i got back to school
last night i should be able to go about six days
without eating again. should being the key word.
lets get back into the swing of things though eh?
so for breakfast this morning i had an eggie scramble that i shoved into a pita along with an apple drenched in cinnamon and peanutbutter. the pictures just werent that great though. stupid dreary rain. so here is the one picture i managed to snap on friday:
!!! bananasoymilkieoats with fone. peanut butter. and CHOCOLATE CHUNKS. the heat from the oats melted the chunks and my lord. words cannot describe. ah! i want more. now.
after my not quite as amazing breakfast this morning i headed off to class and then to the arc to work up a bit of a sweat. nothing too intense. just wanted to get my legs amovin.
i snacked on this little gem before i got my groove on.
after a drizzlie walk home i made a scrumptious lunch.
this picture does not do my lunch justice. anyways. spinach. green peppers. orange peppers. and sundriedtomato hummus [made this weekend]. all shooved between a lovely sandwich thin. along for the ride..strawberries and carrots with more hummus. and hey hey. easter candyyyy. krackel and reeses for sure.
whered that come from!?
so i got a package today from the lovely veronica and i am now starting to realize what an excess of bars i have! its because i hoard them as if once i eat them i will never be able to get another one? i dont even know. anyways. heres a look at my hoarding abilities:
somewhere in that smorgasboard is a box of pure bars [reviews to come!]. a box of honest foods bars and planks [reviews to come]. the rest of my probars. some random natures valley bars and envirokidz crispy rice bars that i obtained pre and post halfmarathon. a mishmosh of clifs. laras. pure proteins.gnu bars. and a few other randoms thrown in for good measure. what the heck yall. i need to stop BUYING bars/letting people GIVE them to me and start EATING them. :]
if it helps i just ate one of these:
coated in chocolate.
i dont know if you can tell from todays pictures of not..but im
a bit hormonal. OH MY GOD I NEED MORE CHOCOLATE. NOW.
i have to run off and meet up with my group for some
atrocious research schtuff. i dont even wanna talk about it.
sorry this post has been lacking in zing.
ill blame the hormones.
whats your favorite bar?
Filed under: breakfast, dessert., dinner., lunch. | Tags: chocolate, gnu bar, granola, hummus, nom, oats, peanut butter, salad, snack bowl
[everything is fine..i just love the nineties.]
anyways. i really am torn though.
i dont know if i want saturday morning to get here right now.
or to never ever come. oy ve. my tummy is all sorts of jumbled.
the funny thing is i dont know why im so nerrrrrvous. i KNOW
i can run thirteenpointonemiles. and i sincerely just want to
run a halfmarathon. time is of no importance. quite puzzling.
anyways. food pictures are sooo much better than my rambles.
another splendid bowl of SOYMILK banana oats. topped with fone. zoes granola. pistachios. and more dried crans for good measure. and a cuppa joe. IM OUT OF COFFEE. which is sort of a good thing. because coffee before i run always gives me the poops [sorry] and i dont want to even be tempted to drink any on saturday morning. that bowl looks so tiny. i think its because that spoon is itty bitty so it throws off the proportions. moh well.
i always get my workout on after a bit of digestion on tuesday and thursday so it was weird to not today. but i obeyed my buddy hal.
besides..i had studying to do. [i slept and snack ALL DAY].
here we have my dear friend mister deconstructedturkeypita. i bronzed a pita pita in the toaster oven with lots of chilipowder and cumin and smoked paprika. mostly for the colors. and then chopped up some carrots and peppers. some turkey for protein and such. all dipped in a bbq/hummus bowl of divine. and half a HUGE apple with cinnamon. and little chunk of a butterfinger that i discovered and munched on last night. mmm. what a lovely little lunching experience i had.
then it was go time. dumb exam. theres always summer school..right?
i made it through classes without the need for a snack. but i was gettin sort of grumbly on my walk home so i munched on this guy so that i didnt absolutely obliterate my wee kitchen once i walked in the door. my plan quasi worked. who gnu?
i like to mix it up. so for dinner i had a salad since i NEVER eat salads. romaine. spinach. and then a mix of veggies and shrimp all cooked up in lime juice. chili powder. and hot sauce. i topped the salad with salsa and my lovely traderjoeschips and called it delicious.
insert drab college stuff here. buzzkill.
and since everyone loves my late night munches!
here we have the rest of my apple from lunch. some cheerios. more zoes granola. newmans own organics cinnamon sugar soy crisps. PEANUTBUTTER. and a hunka chocolate. [wait. theres no chocolate in this picture. well..there should be. it was a last minute add in and apparently this picture was taken prior. let your imagination run wild.]
obviously i went back for a bit more peanut butter. by the time i got to the chocolate the spoon had long been sucked dry and well..mister chocolate was horribly lonesome. im quite the matchmaker if i do say so myself.
and with that i must depart. toodles.
favorite onscreen matchup..go!

you guys are superb. all of your comments on my
last post were supah sweet and i was lovin them.
[except heathers: 'College is hard, but real life is worse. '
gee thanks heather. that makes me feel loads better.
perhaps she was just hangry? haha. just kidding. kisses!]
so since friday ive eaten A TON but my pictures are all
sort of blah or nonexistent so were just going to pff that.
just imagine lots of good healthy eating all day long. and
then once the night arrives LOTS of cereal. peanutbutter.
chocolate. cottagecheese with spicyflaxchips. etc etc etc.
you havent missed too much excitement in my not eats either.
worked for a long arse time friday. ran all day saturday. worked
for another long arse time saturday night. grumble grumble.
the silver lining to all that work though. i just HAD to sample
the new truffles and caramels and sparkling wines we got..
you know. just in case someone was curious about any of them.
and the gelatos arent new. but i had to remind myself of how
scrumptious they were since id been away for break and such.
yesterday i ran thirteen miles. BALLIN. my hip got a bit tight
around mile eleven which sort of freaked me out. moh well.
hopefully i can manage to tack on that last point one miles
next weekend. i dont know though. cross your fingers eh? ;]
where are all the pictures?!
okay. heres ONE picture from yesterday. just because
it turned out sort of cute. and was horribly delicious.
salad. nothing new. blackbeans. chicken. peppers. carrots. salsa/hummus mix. kashi lovebites. strawberries/kiwi. yada yada.
NOW ONWARD TO SUNDAY.
i woke up and slothed around in bed for an excessive amount of
time because its sunday and pretty much required in these parts.
eventually i realized eating is required as well so i had this gem:
i polished off the corn bran. seventeen servings. hahaha. more like five. also in the pool..soymilk. protein powder. frozen banana chunks.
the colors in the bowl were sort of bland so i dove into my dirty laundry for that shirt for a pop of color. the things i do for you guys.
then i continued to sloth in bed for a long ass time. totally fine.
doing absolutely nothing is hard work so i had to refuel.
as you can see the novelty of the monster plate has worn off.
i whipped up a wrap with spinach and a mixture of carrots. corn. broccoli. black beans. salsa. etc. the bit that wouldnt fit in got its own cute little bowl. alongside i had some delicious fruit from earlier in the week. much more colorful than breakfast for sure.
more bed action. hollah.
i should add that all of this time spent in bed was sort of productive. i had lots of school work to do. it only took me like eight hours to do about fortytwo minutes worth of work. thats pretty legit for this gal.
at this point my fridge was pretty barren so.. GROCERIES. yesssss.
before i left i ate a banana. no picture because my camera battery was charging.
i pretty much looked like this:
at the grocery store i also managed to munch on half the bag of grapes while perusing. i totally owe meijer like threebucks. oops.
meijer didnt have much by way of sweet potatoes so i zipped across the street to walmart afterwards to pick up a couple. walmart randomly has a subway in it? so on the way out the door the smell of stinky feet wafted towards me and i was hooked. damn you subway.
ovenroastedchickenbreast with lots of veggies. mmm. banana peppers. and i dont know whats in that cup but its definitely not diet coke. i only put wholesome healthy good for me things in my hotbod.
now im back in bed because i havent spent enough time here today.
i really need to ‘study’ but im crazyintelligent and so it is unnecessary.
hope everyone had a stupendous weekend void of any excessivelylongshifts at cupcakefactories and the likes.
hold the phone. i havent had any peanut butter today.
this must be remedied..and with that i must depart!
do you have any pets?
i am the proud owner of three really playful plants from meijer.

thats what i have to keep telling myself.
dude. college is hard.
and minimum wage sucks.
and im getting sick.
but you know what isnthard/doesntsuck/isntsick? well..who.
i was totally having the crummiest of days today and that
little gem of blogger totally made my day. thanks heather.
anyways. things are gettin all wackedup on this end
so my posting/commenting/etc may be even more
sporatic than it normally is so bear with meeee please.
grrr. grrr. im a bear. oh man. i need sleep. baaaaadly.
hey. this is a food blog. not national geographic.
no more bears. unless i start eating bear meat.
which i promise wont happen. ever. though oddly
enough ive had the opportunity. totally awk right?
yesterday morning i had a lovely six mile or so run.
i got all nice and sweaty. and red and puffy. sexy no?
then i came home and ate. i mean showered. [nah man. i ate.]
just a snackish plate of sorts. i ate double the amount of cottage cheese and crackers for sure though. i think i eat half my meals before they even make it to the plate. whoops. [and yeah. that monster is totally tryin to eat my cottage cheese. i showed him what was up though. no worries.]
lunch dessert! strawberries. chocolate. peanut butter. could it get any better?! [well..chocolate covered pretzels would have been nice but..]
i packed up this little gem and headed out to my classes.
this was a GNU flavor for me and good grief was it swell. i think i preferred the peanut butter [shocking i know] but this one was super divine. i think maybe a peanutbutterbananawalnut fusion is in order. and hey. i still gotta try the chocolate one. hmmmm. i like where this is headed.
so i had made a point to check the ten DAY forecast in the morning..but failed to check the ten HOUR forecast. aka i had a nice walk home in the rain. in leather flipflops. sans umbrella. oy.
dinner was so good though that i totally didnt care.
i baked up a sweetpotato and mashed it all up with some black beans and bbqsauce and wrapped it all up with some spinach in a flatout wrap. sooo good. i broiled the whole thing to help keep the wrap together. when i was done i seriously contemplated making another. i also tried kale chips for the first time. they were so awkward and made me uncomfortable while i was eating them. but i definitely loved them. [!?] and yay for delicious fruit.
then i started to get a little stressed out. and when this galfriday
gets stressed out she EATS. so i did.
this was so good. my first time trying the erin baker breakfast cookies. definitely not my last. the ingredients are totally legit but the cookie taste did not reflect that. seriously. go try these. [that notebook is just for you munchhead.]
at this point i started going at the jar of peanut butter to comfort my sorry self. and then i thought this might work out better than just straight up spoonfuls:
comforting and delicious.
but i still ended up with more skippylove.
and some more kashis with cottage cheese.
and a piece or two of chocolate.
im stressed out okay. dont judge.
anyways. zzzzzzzz. but not really.
i did not sleep well last night. bummer.
at least breakfast was good this morning.
corn bran. frozen banana chunks and berries. soymilk. and of course my clumpy chocolate protein powder was added post picture.
i was running late this morning. per usual. so i just grabbed half a clif bar i had lying around to eat between classes. oatmeal raisin walnut. aka best flavor ever.
my head is all congested and nast right now [definitely self-induced. thanks again stress.] so im takin the day off on the exercise front. sometimes its just what you need. ya know?
im gonna go whip up some lunch and then shower and get ready for work. grumble grumble. think of me while youre all off enjoying your friday night. i think im the only person that more often than not does not look forward to friday. come on sunday.
whats your favorite day of the week?!
im a total sunday girl. as a general rule i am not allowed to do anything i do not want to on sundays. and dude. football. :]

hola! happy second day of april.
lets head back to yesterday my little gremlins.
heres the swag i managed to make it home with.
each box had a big ole turkeysandwich. a delectable fruit box of sorts. and two cookies. like so:
i made it out with a full box and about two more boxes of fruit from the collected bits of my comrades. im no sarah but ill take it.
munch munch munch.
i kinda just hung out for a bit after my last post and then legit started to comtemplate a run.
then there was a knock at the door.
THE STRIPPERS ARE HERE!!!
nah. it was some schmuck asking for money for ‘the children’. i gave those damn kids a couple bucks because im a total pushover. dumb.
BUT!! he gave me candy:
anyways. after conman left i popped on my niks and was on my merry way. first i ate a chunk or two of a random probar ive already tasted and mentioned in posts prior. and a couple almonds. and dried cranberries. [dont judge. i needed fuel. ?]
fiftyminutes or so later i was back home. i called up my friend mapmyrun.com and he was all ‘hey babygirl. you just ran sixpointonefive miles. dizamn you are fiiiine.’
then i ate some more. because well. why not. plus i just ran six miles.
sweet potato chunks. black beans. broccoli. pepper rings. and a tasty little sauce of bbq sauce. rice wine vinegar to loosen it up. and some hot sauce for some zing! this was money.
at least im consistent? thank goodness my little zoefriends sent me the granola sampler [aka three flavors] rather than just one because this little lovebox is nearly gone and i am sad.
this is the newmans own organics dark espresso bar. or something. that sounds awkward. it was dark. and espressoed. and delicious. go buy. now. [man. im a GREAT advertising major. ;] ]
those popchips were pretty darn good. definitely satisfied my salty craving. and the bag was a wee one with one sixteen chips so going overboard wasnt an option. perfect. thanks to my poptastic friends for sending me some to munch on. :]
rumor has it there was a hummus party at one point too.
apple slices showed up early for the pregame and then we met up with that hottie carrot stick at the bars. afterhours? at the pretzel crib. fab night. [i need to get out more.]
so i thought i went the whole day without peanut butter. turns out LIFE played an april fools joke on me. that like wee chunk of probar i had prerun definitely had peanut butter..and i couldnt even taste it. SERIOUSLY!? ..my life.
so i had big plans to get creative with my oaties today but when i woke up classic banana oats with dried cranberries mixed in sounded so simple and good. corn bran and PEANUTBUTTER sounded good too. [but when dont they right?]
imma go out for a run now because its NOT raining here. [bahahahah. sorrylittle lo. love you?]
this post might be a little incoherent because ive been writing it since yesterday. on a ‘stickie’ on my desktop. and i dont feel like proofreading. ya dig?
OH MAN. ten day forecast..day TEN: APRIL 11th. [my half.]
F R E A K I N G O U T !
i need some good tunes for running my thirteenpointone. help a gal out.
whats your favorite song to run to?!

..only its wednesday? [at least i think its wednesday?]
anyways. in true erinbee style ive gotten a bit behind on my posting havent i. mah bad. i am here now and that is all that matters. right?
backbackback it up to monday noche.
this salad was saladtastic. the usual suspects of romaine. spinach. carrots. peppers. etc were present as well as frozen corn and broccoli. [unfrozed. duh.] and a crumbled up morningstar southwestern veggie cake i found hiding the in the back of the freezer. and of course i brought back a jar of my FAVORITE SALSA EVERRR from home so i had lots of that as well. and some stolen franks hot sauce. thanks roommate. hah. on the side i had banana chunks. kiwi niblets. and a huuuumungo strawberry.
SOME of my late night munches:
looks to me like a chopped up apple with my new ZOES GRANOLA. oh my goodness. this stuff is so great. the lovely zoe-ites [aka tori] sent me a granola sampler pack to try. this is the cinnamon raisin. but really they should just call it ‘heckatastyyall’.
mmm. peanut butter. figgers. newmans own chocolate. i had at least double everything shown here. maaaaybe a bit more chocolate and peanut butter..but its been a while so i cannot be certain. ya dig?
the day of twos.
it had been far too long since banana oats had graced my mouthicle. divine. and with that i finished off another jar of peanut butter. [no worries. i have like five more jars. stocked up for sure when it was on sale at meijer. four for fivedollars much?]
it was all drab and dreary outside so i did some yoga in hopes that the rain would stop. no such luck. so i had a snack instead.
blurfest. and i had a lot more of those newmans own organic dried cranberries. they were supah sweet and i could not stop.
i eventually made it to the arc since i found my icard. holla.
i did some easypeasy arctrainering because i wasnt so much lookin for an intense workout as i just needed to get out of my dreary apartment. i also did weights because im a bodybuilder.
i got workout number two in on my walk home in the rain. this poor old man was havin some wheelchair issues so i wheeled him home. hardest. thing. ever. [and i know hard..] he insisted the brakes were not on but im callin his bluff. at least now i am doubly swoll.
lunch was another salad. i like em apparently. spinach. romaine. carrots. peppers. salsa!!. chicken slices. and such. with a wee bowl of kiwis and strawberries. and some newmans own organics white cheddar soy crisps. after the picture i finished off the bag. [thank goodness the are only threeandahalf servings per bag. oh. and that theyre air.] still super delish though. i love flavored crunchy air. and a serving actually has somethin like eight grams of protein. if you say so nell.
and some chocolate popped into my mouth on the way out the door to classville. mmm.
today has been brought to you by the letter: newmans own organics?
i packed up this little diddie for a snack:
as you may recall back in the days of my creepybabyprime i tried the orangecranberry gnu bar and was less than pleased. however..i GNU [bahaha.] that the other flavors were more up my alley and so my dear friends at gnu hooked me up with the other four flavors to try. this peanut butter bar did not disappoint. go gnu!
oh mannnn. its like the neverendstory up in here. [!!! who wants to come over for a movie night!?]
i somehow made it through my classes without inflicting pain on myself or anyone around me. progress.
the most important part of this dinner for me was making sure that everyone could see my new plate from target. with that being said i had double that amount of cara cara orange chunks. looooots more pretzels and hummus. and i added more of my tunahummuspretzelbbqsauce mosh to the sandwich thin.
ah! monster! ah!
i was super snacky last night. [..as opposed to everyother night.]
another delicious mosh of cinnamon raisin zoes granola. apple chunks. soymilk. and cinnamon. its the bombdiggity.
how adorable are these!? i found them at the walmart back home awhile back and sweet talked them into the basket. thanks cath. :]
somehow throughout the night i ingested FIVE candycane frangos..but didnt manage to get a picture of any of them. i got skills.
there was more but ill spare you. i was really proud of myself for not going at a new jar of peanut butter until i realized that by not having a spoonful or two i ended up munching on much more throughout the night. oops?
oh hey. its today now.
another amazing bowl of cornbran. soymilk. chocolateprotein powder. and banana chunks. oh wait. frozen mixed berries decided they wanted to join the early morning rushfest.
then i did the college thing.
for lunch i met up with a bunch of the people that i studied abroad in rome with. also present was my main squeeze fabio parsecoli. he was our instructor while in rome. hes also written a book or two or so and teaches at nyu and in barcelona. and he was a writer for gambero rosso but apparently its just got bought out and he wasnt happy with where things were headed so he jumped ship. yada yada. what im trying to say is hes a jack of all trades. and who doesnt love an italian man? it was nice to chat with him and all my little romepals.
okay. i lied. heres another picture.
me and the fab in italy. [man. im such a cheeser.]
anyways. what im trying to say is that lunch was provided by the department. so no picture. BUT i did manage to swipe some leftover grub so i have a picture of that. but its not loaded on my computer so youre just going to have to wait.
im currently munching on pretzels and salsa. munching in the mindless straight from the bag/jar sense. i should probably stop. its gorgeous outside [though a tid windy] and i think a nice little diddie of a run is in order. or maybe a nap..by the window?
see you sassycats later.
whatre you thoughts on skippy, smucker, and jifs ‘natural’ peanut butter?
i dont so much think its ‘natural’ since they all have more than just peanut butters. but it is better than their counterparts.
i eat lots of skippy natural mostly because meijer hooks me up with super good deals that i just cannot turn down. its actually on sale this week too. uh oh..damn you meijer.

GUESS WHO FOUND THEIR ICARD!!!
and just in the nick of time.
i was in my nine am packing my stuff up at the end of the class and i was planning on shellin out the twentybuckers to get a new one before my eleven and as i was crammin my notebook and ‘course manual’ into my bag I FOUND IT! i totally squealed and started shaking i was so excited. hahaha. its the little things..right? [im guessing it got stuck in my course manual or something because i had previously checked in all my notebook and my bag and well everywhere under the sun. or so i thought.]
anyways. yeah. maaaaaade my day.
speaking of my day. it was a gooden for suuuuure. thus far anyways.
im been the opposite of productive but i dont give two licks.
[i have random pictures of figlets and peanut butter and chocolate and various snackies from last night buuuuut eh. whatevs. its MONDAY yall.]
breakfast had to be quick. and it definitely was lacking in fresh colorful fruit. :/
corn bran. mmmm. for some reason they dont sell it at meijer so i always have to bring a box back to me when im at home. also in the bowl of fun was soymilk banana chunks and chocolate protein powder. chocolate protein powder and cereal is so bomb. i love the gritty chunks.
then class. squeal/shakefest. and some more clissclass. groan.
ORANGE YOU GLAD I DIDNT SAY BANANA!?
my lunch turned out way orange. so to be obnoxious/excessive i put it on my orange cmn folder along with my orange phone.
my homemade hummus is the bomb. first time ive ever made it with tahini. and this was the real deal my friends. i had been looking for tahini for a while and so cath bought me some in TURKEY. i have nooooo idea what the jar says but i feel quite authentic when i eat my hummus. mmmm. turkish tahini.
after lunch i decided to NOT do the hoards of things i needed to and set out for a walk in the glorious weather. i was gone for a good two and a half hours. managed to walk about five miles. and hit up the health food store. the food coop. the new grocery store on campus. AND a korean grocery store.
the health food store/food coop are soooo overpriced but they have all the fun foods i see on blogs that want to try but cannot find elsewhere. i didnt buy anything [save a banana] but i enjoyed myself immensely. my friends think my grocery store obsession is weird. i think its lovely. i ducked into county market just to check it out and see how it compared to meijer..doesnt hold a candle. and of well i was just curious about the korean grocery store. i couldnt read a single label but i could sort of tell what things were based on the pictures. and i know what POCKY is. i didnt have any cash on me and didnt want to charge the buckfifty since it probably would have cost them more than that in transaction fees but soon that pocky will be mine.
the health food store is way on the other side of campus. well past it a bit actually. when i was perusing i got a little hungry. i was going to buy a bar [especially since they have all the fun clifs/laras that i cannot find elsewhere] but they were hecka money so i went with a banana. still the most ive ever paid for a banana. ninetyninecents a pound..really!? it was totally worth the thirtycents though. mmmm.
cell phone pic much? i tried to be springish though. yay daffodils and red things.
all that walking felt supa good on my legs which were definitely aching when i woke up from the run/drive combo.
now i should probably get to gettin.
whatre you wearing? ;]
