Good morning! I’m over halfway through my first week of grad school classes. Luckily I have Fridays off! Although, I’ll probably be using them to study biostatistics because I think that class is going to consume my life. Oh well.
Breakfast was my typical overnight oats – pictures above are night vs. morning. I made my Nutella overnight oats (recipe here) but substituted the Nutella for Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter again. My overnight oats never fail me!
For a mid-morning snack I had an “Envy” apple from New Zealand. I love living near a Whole Foods and Central Market again so that I can get cool apples!
For “lunch” I had a strawberry banana oat smoothie to hold me through my three hour class. I had block classes in college, but I forgot how long they can drag on!
When I got home from class I snacked on a Chobani apple cinnamon yogurt with pumpkin granola. I still contend that apple cinnamon is the best Chobani flavor! I’ll probably be eating it even more in the fall because it will feel seasonal .
For dinner, I didn’t have exactly the above picture, but something pretty similar. My Mom made a pasta tossed with zucchini, roasted red peppers and a light cream sauce. It reminded me of my Lemon Yogurt Pasta (recipe here) and I forgot to take a picture of last night’s meal so I used this one! It was made with gluten-free pasta and I actually couldn’t even notice that it was gluten-free. For any GF folks out there, the brand was Schar and it was their penne pasta.
I finished the night off with a triple chocolate chunk cookie that caught my eye at Whole Foods along with glass of wine as I caught up on Pretty Little Liars. (Yes, I love my ABC Family shows!)
And that’s What I Ate
Wednesday Tuesday! Grad school is keeping me busy, but I’ll be back with a new recipe soon!
