Can’t Choose Just One

Another Monday has come and (almost) gone. Which means I only have 4 days of school left until I’m on break. Can you tell I’m counting down?

I started the week off right with a nice little breakfast.

Food 3 920

There was some leftover millet in the fridge, so I mixed that with some almond milk, chia, cinnamon, applesauce, and raisins, then heated it all in the microwave for a few minutes. Top with pecans, and you are good to go!

Food 3 921

With a glass of good ol’ cranberry juice to wash it down.

Food 3 922

It’s nice to get in a warm breakfast sometimes on my early mornings.

Food 3 918

It was your typical Monday – biochem lecture, Sprouts volunteering (and tasty baked goods!), lunch, and a food science lecture. Since neither of the lectures are really blog worthy, let’s look at the food!

Lunch was pretty basic, but totally what I was craving.

Food 3 927

A classic peanut butter & banana sandwich on some Silver Hills “The Big 16” sprouted grain bread. Always reminds me of being a kid!

Food 3 929

It got a little smushed in my backpack though. Also reminds me of being a kid 😉

For some crunchy veggie action, I brought the usual – cucumber and carrot – with some hummus.

Food 3 928

And of course, I had to pick out a baked good while I was at Sprouts. This time, there were two options I just couldn’t decide between.

My usual fudgy vegan brownie.

Food 3 926

Or the new (and Valentine’s Day themed) Mexican Hot Chocolate Broken Heart Snickerdoodle.

Food 3 925

Really, how could I person possibly choose between the two? I didn’t bother.

Food 3 931

Now, I didn’t eat them both in one sitting. I had a little nibble of each at school, then decided upon the brownie once I got home.

Food 3 941


A great pick me up snack in the afternoon. Especially since I was off to the local hospital to resume my volunteering there.

Well, that was a bust. I’ve had so much miscommunication there with the volunteer coordinator and the clinic I’m working in. Basically, they didn’t know I was coming, and they aren’t there late enough to make it worth while for me to go after class. I was home much earlier than expected, and yet, failed to use that time wisely (aka – studying). Instead, I caught up on the news. Oops!

Dinner time rolled around, and it was just me and my dad home for dinner. We both went with the “fend for yourself” menu plan. Which was perfect, because I had a new soup I wanted to try out.

Food 3 943

Did you know Happy Planet not only makes awesome juices, but they make soup as well? When we were at Costco on the weekend, they were demoing the Thai Coconut Soup, and it was delicious. It comes in a two pack for an awesome price, so I snuck it into the cart 😉

Food 3 945


All good stuff there on the ingredient list!

I heated up a serving with a little water, since it’s super (souper?) thick.

Food 3 950

And toasted up some more Silver Hills bread, slathering on some avocado/Laughing Cow smash. Yum!

Food 3 949

So easy, but so tasty!

Food 3 948

This soup is great. It has a nice heat that builds as you eat it, and lots of big pieces of baby corn, carrots, and bamboo shoots. I think it would be awesome with some shrimp, chicken, tofu, or tempeh added to it. And for a premade soup, the sodium isn’t even that bad per serving – 550 mg, which is lower than alot of soups out there.

The rest of my evening was spent sort of studying, sort of watching tv, and sort of doing nothing. All with a mug of tea to keep me going.

Food 3 954

I figured the mug might motivate me to crack the books a little more. So far…not really working.

But, I shall sign off for the evening, so I can delve into the 5 chapters of psych I need to read by Thursday morning. Let’s see if that actually happens. Night!

    That soup sounds AMAZING! I plan to hit up Costco on Sunday so I’ll be looking out for that.

    PB + Banana sandwiches just hit the spot- I actually brought one for lunch today!

    The avocado/ laughing cow smash is a brilliant idea!

    good luck with the reading!

    That dinner looks fabulous. So smart with the avocado + LC smash!

    PB and banana sandwiches are a classic! Gotta love it! 🙂

    I just made a Thai Coconut soup that was so good! It’s only like the third time I even used coconut milk – I guess I was expecting it to be really sweet, but it isn’t!

    Almost to break – go Olympics! 😀

    Glad you went with both! That fudgy brownie looks divine!! What a great soup – that sounds like something I’d love!

    Break is a coming… can’t you just smell it right around the corner? I sure can.

    I don’t think I would have been able to decide between two such luscious chocolatey delights either. Good call on getting both.
    And I totally have to make a banana and pb sandwich sometime soon because it’s been WAY too long.
    Also definitely making a note to try avocado + laughing cow smash. Mmmmm.
