Fruits and Veggies

Well I certainly met my quota for fruits and veggies today! In the summer when it’s so hot it seems like all I crave are fresh fruits and vegetables!Β 


I started my day off bright and early with a big bowl of cereal: fiber one, kashi go lean, wheatberries, flax, and skim milk. Seriously wheatberries in cereal=AMAZING. Please try it. Tomorrow. Or tonight, I’m sure it would be good as a midnight snack : )

This big bowl kept me well fueled through yoga, errands, and studying.


I picked up lunch from the salad bar at my grocery store. It was huge and loaded with all sorts of veggies. I was seriously stuffed after finishing this!


Fruit round #1 came as an afternoon snack to get me through GRE reading comprehension. Reading passages about ice formations on Mars is not my idea of fun. This definitely made it better.


It was just me and my dad for dinner tonight so I made Chicken Paprika. It was really liquidy from the broth and didn’t thicken up much despite the corn starch and ended up tasting just like homemade chicken soup! It was so good–really flavorful and filling from all the veggies (onion, red pepper, and tomato). For the chicken I used some frozen individually wrapped chicken breasts that I found at the grocery store. These things are great. Each breast is 4 oz and is individually wrapped so you can use as many portions as you want. It’s really convenient and something I definitely will be buying when I go back to school. I always ran into the problem last year of having to buy a whole lb of chicken and then having tons of leftovers—this way I can make individual servings easily!


Dessert was a repeat of last night: mini kettle-corn and fruit round #2.

Obviously I couldn’t stop there—it’s just so good! Here’s fruit round #3. And there might still be some room in my tummy for a round #4 before the night is over ; )
