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?

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. :D’
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. :]
breeeeeeeeeathe. breeeeeeeeeeeathe. breeeeeeeeeeathe.

..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? ;]
