Hey guys! Sorry I don’t post as much as I used to. Life gets busy and it just seems as if blogging is the last thing on my mind most of the time. But I do have a pretty steady week with school work so I wanted to share a full day of eating with you all. My schedule can make it very difficult to eat proper meals every single day but I still manage to make time for eating and “me time”.
Posted this the other day on my Instagram and oh my word I will have to share with you all the recipe! These waffles are made with pumpkin and have a hint of peanut butter goodness so I will be working on perfecting the recipe to put on here! No protein powder needed and they don’t even need syrup! 🙂
Lunch: I must admit, I eat sandwiches more often than the average folk. Can’t complain, they the bomb. I picked this up from the school convenience store for an easy lunch along with Enlightened crisps and a cool, refreshing orange!
In between classes, if I have enough time I will come back to my dorm to rest and grab a snack. If not, I usually take something with me on the go because forever hungry… It’s been quite sometime that I had a good ole Larabar so I happily noshed on cashew cookie and paired it with a Cocolibre vanilla protein shake. I recommend these drink because they have a shit ton of potassium with other essential vitamins and minerals. Found mine at Kroger 🙂
Dinner: Okay, imma be real. I was in the dining hall and forgot to take a picture because the hunger was real, but I had a nice spinach salad with tuna, hummus, all da veg, and a little of this pasta salad they had. I don’t always gets salads because I’m working on gaining a little more 😉 but a crisp salad honestly sounded amazing and I listened to my body yo 🙂
I finished off the rest of my cottage cheese, some pretzels and a Wild Friends vanilla protein peanut butter (Verdict: DELICIOUS). I’m not lactose intolerant I don’t think.. but sometimes too much dairy will upset my stomach and make me a gas attack so I am glad I found this lactose-free cottage cheese plus it’s actually really tasty!
Look, not every day is the same. I am one that LOVES variety so I try different things on the daily. Some days I eat a LOT and other days I have to work with what I got. From a first year college girl, I recommend stocking up on fruit in ya fridge because the dining hall doesn’t always have the best (at least mine doesn’t) I also always have yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, lunch meat, mini bagels and a bunch of other eats for those days I can’t go out to grab something. College doesn’t have to be hard and stressful, focus on YOU and what what you know YOUR body needs.
