Sorry, if that got your hopes up…..I didn’t accomplish a running PR.
I PRed (personal record) in the hugeness and weight of my salad last night.
This salad was no joke. I don’t mess around with dinner. It is kind of a big deal to me. It’s not like I think about it as I am driving home from school or as I was teaching spin last night or anything….I am not that obsessed. Okay, I am.
Grilled Tilapia, spinach, broccoli, onion, tomatoes and a bunch of random frozen veggies that I cooked up.
Now compare it to the size of my phone. Fiber overload. I even went back for more broccoli.
As much as I love junk food and candy nothing compares to the feeling after eating a ridiculous amount of nutrients in the form of veggies and fish. I am high on vitamins right now.
As I was cooking my frozen veggies it took me back to the college years…….I went through bags of these every week. I had no idea how to prepare fresh veggies so I did the easiest and cheapest thing and just bought them frozen.
Some random Halloween pictures from my college years:
These pics prove that I have always enjoyed making random facial expressions for pictures. I will never change this quality.
Some of my college staple foods included:
–Potatoes. I ate so many baked potatoes with ketchup. Yep, weird but it doesn’t get cheaper than that.
–Cereal. Chex and Life were there for me through many late night study sessions.
–Lean Cuisines. I don’t know what I was thinking…oh yeah, I had no idea how to cook.
–Wheat thins with cottage cheese. Best combo, I need to do this again. Thanks for the reminder Janae.
–Refrigerated cookie dough and whipped cream. They were there for me for many break-ups.
–Pancakes. I had a roommate that we called mom because she always made us pancakes Sunday mornings.
–7-11 Slurpees and hot cocoa. If you went to college around here you would know that was the cool place to hang out. Slurpee sugar buzz=Mormon’s party drink.
What were your staple foods in college or when you were younger?
Do you think about what you are going to make for dinner during the day?
-Oh yeah……I love thinking about how I can turn all 9 ingredients in our kitchen into something delicious.
