Even though everyone else has probably been done with school for days, I am still wrapping up. I have until Monday night to have everything completed – but of course I’m planning on finishing everything this weekend. I didn’t even want to think about it all week. I did some little things, but I’m not kidding when I say my work weeks have bee get home – eat dinner – shower – blog – blog read/school work for half an hour – bed.
I did my nutrition final this afternoon. I didn’t do as well on it as I could and should have, but I sort of just wanted it to be over with. I should have waited and done it when I wasn’t thinking of other things, but alas…I still did learn some valuable things in that class:
- I’m not going to die if I don’t have a carb – fat – protein at each meal even if it is most ideal. Chances are good that I’m still meeting all my requirements.
- I eat a lot of food.
- Coconut oil probably won’t give me wings.
- Even if I don’t eat meat, I’m probably getting enough protein without even trying very hard.
- I am borderline overdosing on manganese with all the whole grains I eat.
- Sugar is sugar is sugar. It doesn’t matter if it’s from a “natural source” like maple syrup or molasses or what-have-you. Sugar is natural, anyways. It’s all still sugar and metabolized the same.
- Nutrition is a little too science-heavy for me to want to pursue a career in it – I prefer to think of it as a passion.
Okay so I learned more – that’s moreso what had an effect o me psychologically, I guess. While you would think a class such as nutrition would encourage me to be more…I don’t know, “Strict”? with myself – it’s actually made me a little more lax. Not having protein at dinner? NBD. Using sugar instead of maple syrup? NBD.
Anyways. Today. Some fun extracts made their way ito my basket at the co-op yesterday. Usually they’re too high-priced for something I’ll get a kick out of once, but they were on sale and I couldn’t resist. Coffee extract was one, and you’ll soon see the other.
I added it to my pancakes, but truth be told – the cashew butter and date syrup I drizzled on top stole the show and I completely forgot I put the extract in the batter!
I spent my morning planning my attack before heading off to see Teddie, who was a superstar! And finally got a Christmas tree on the way home. It felt wrong, though – getting a tree without my mom and/or sister. That and there were only two trees left. It wasn’t like it was a big decision like it should be. We just haven’t had time to go this year!
My Bruins are trying so hard right now, man. YES! Score.
Does anyone else like hockey? I’m not a big football watcher and pretty much just watch the Bruins games – but I’ve become really entranced with it lately.
Anyways. English muffins! I’ve had a craving since my mom’s been buying them like crazy lately and I had one last weekend. These Vermont Bread Company Spelt english muffins were so good – chewy, thick ad flavorful. I love spelt, though. I had it toasted and smothered with hummus, tomato, pickles and tempeh bacon.
After my mom wrapped up her baking extravaganza in the kitch, it was all me. I started with Eat, Drink and Be Vegan’s Maple Pecan Sticky Blondies.
Okay, this game has me way too distracted right now so I’m going to wrap this up quick. I hope this momentum stays this time!
Okay, I lied. I’m going to wrap this up now. But there’s a little teaser as to what’s coming – along with a recipe that you’ll only want to use if you want people to fall in love with you and think you’re the best thing since sliced bread.
Hopefully this post is a little bit coherent? I don’t feel like re-reading
I had a good question, too – and now I don’t remember what it was…so istead I’ll ask you what you make if you want to impress?
