WOW I forgot how busy school is. Classes, reading, blogging, and squash makes up for action-packed days. I think I need a personal assistant! (Or maybe I just need to buy a planner…). Anyway, let’s move on to some food related things!
Arctic Zero Giveaway- 2 days left to enter!
Before we get to some food from the past couple days, don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win a pint of Arctic Zero! Here’s the link to the giveaway, and here’s the link to yesterday’s post, which gives my review of Arctic Zero plus a delicious recipe! (Milkshakes, anyone?!)
Peanut Butter + Other Eats
Alright, back to food things! Now that I’m back at school, I no longer buy my own peanut butter, which means that I am at the mercy of those who have all the power. (Having control over the food is a powerful position!). In any case, the powers that be
tend to always buy Skippy peanut butter.
To the untrained peanut-butterer (<– is that a word??), Skippy is what normal peanut butter tastes like! However, over the years I have come to appreciate pure, natural peanut butter, and find Skippy too sugary.
Still, Skippy PB > no PB, so I eat it. With everything 🙂
Lately, I’ve been rocking the PB + instant oatmeal combo for breakfast, and afternoon/evening snacks.
I’ve also had a couple of these walnut+chocolate chip blondies.
The other day I pretty good lunch the other day of spinach salad with chicken, edamame, red cabbage, and sliced almonds, chicken kabobs, and breaded eggplant.
Today lunch was a couple hardboiled eggs, quinoa salad with cucumbers, tomatoes and edamame, kale salad with feta, mozzarella, edamame, chicken, and purple cabbage, and cottage cheese on the side. I couldn’t resist adding a little mac and cheese to my
container plate at the last second. (I ate most of it before snapping the picture).
Dinner last night was flank steak, polenta (which I left to the side), roasted portobello mushroom with white beans, and roasted vegetables (unpictured).
Well that sums up some of my recent eats from the past few days! I’ve got to run off to class now, have a great rest of your Wednesday, and thanks to Jenn for hosting What I Ate Wednesday! Be sure to check out her blog, Peas and Crayons for some more WIAW posts!
What brand of peanut butter (or other nut butter) do you prefer? Do you have a preference?
I might have to dedicate an entire post to peanut butter, (and nut butter in general), because I could talk about this topic for days on end.
