Saturday morning I was window shopping when I cam across a little store that sold books and cards. I went in and spent a solid half hour looking through all the cards. I've been getting interested in cards lately, especially since a lot of my friends live far away. 
It's always fun to get some mail from a friend. Here's some of my favorite cards that I saw this weekend:

I hope that you had a lovely weekend!

The Best Meal of the Day

Breakfast of course! I don't know about you but I LOVE breakfast. In fact, tonight I had breakfast for dinner!

Since I love breakfast so much I make sure to eat it every single day. Here are a few of the breakfasts that I eat on a regular basis.

2 egg whites
1 egg
Large handful of spinach
Splash of milk
Sprinkle of cheese

It took me several tries to master the omelet but I finally got it.

Here's a recipe that I found on pinterest. They actually taste like pancakes, I have no idea how it works!

Banana "Pancakes"
2 eggs beaten
1 mashed banana
Splash of vanilla
Sprinkle of cinnamon
*Tonight I added a couple of spoonfuls of canned pumpkin and it was really good!

Mix all the ingredients together and cook like pancakes. Top with maple syrup and some walnuts if you'd like.

I'm telling you, they're delicious! More importantly, they're less than 300 calories for the whole batch and they have 14 grams of protein!

Since I often eat breakfast once I've le…

Semester Begining

Hello Hello!

So this week is the first real week of the semester for me. I have all my classes (including my first clinical this Friday!) and 2 morning workouts for rotc. Since this semester is so busy, I really have to be on top of my game.

Mondays and Wednesdays I leave my house at 5:15 and I don't get back till 6:30 at night! That means I have to pack breakfast, lunch, a snack, a change of clothes and stuff for a shower at the gym! To make it a little easier, this Sunday I made a big batch of bbq pulled chicken and these egg cups courtesy of pinterest!

To prepare for my 13 hour days I also have to get a good night's sleep. No joke, on Tuesday night I went to bed before 8:30. Yeah, I'm a grandma...

Even with the right preparations, I still feel like a wet sock at the end of the day so tonight I'm just going to chill and watch some tv (the thought of doing homework makes me want to cry!).

So for the first few days of the semester I've been very on top of things. I…

"There is no sincerer love than the love of food."

Some guy said that and it came up when I searched "food quotes." But let's be real here, who doesn't love food?

Since I just moved into a house with 5 friends (stay tuned for a post on how we decorated our place!), I've been doing all of my own grocery shopping and cooking. Ann Arbor is a great place for eating, there's a gourmet grocery store right down the street, a farmer's market twice a week and the produce in the grocery stores is much cheaper than at home. Here's a quick look at some delicious things I've been cooking.

As you can see, I definitely haven't been surviving off of Ramen and frozen pizzas. I think when I work to prepare my own healthy meals then they are just much more enjoyable. 
What do you like to cook for yourself?
