And another semester begins…
January 25, 2011 4 Comments
Spring semester officially started, as of yesterday. I miss the comforts of home (especially the kitchen, of course), but I looove the city, so it works out.
As I hurried to rush out the door on Sunday evening, I didn’t have a chance to post my eats from that day:
Breakfast: overnight oats with… goji berries…
I say it with some degree of reluctance because while the goji berries look pretty, I wasn’t a fan. Are they really that sweet?? They kind of tasted like hard raisins made of pure sugar. I hope I used a bad batch. I want to like goji berries because they’re so good for you!
Sandwich with whole grain toast, avocado hummus, tabbouleh, and 1/4 avocado sliced up.
And some leftover balsamic stir-fry random veggies and tofu. Do you stir-fry with balsamic? It’s my latest obsession!
Check out the new plate and placemat! 🙂
After a couple hours of house browsing, we got home, only to get into the car to pay a visit to Wegmans. I snacked on some steamed edamame to curb my hunger.
Dinner was a vegetable brown rice roll courtesy of Wegmans.
The sushi container was super cute! Like a little boat. I wasn’t a fan of the ingredients of the sauce packets that were included, so I just made my own dipping sauce: soy sauce and balsamic.
With some broccoli and falafel on the side.
I got these vegan falafels from Costco. The package instructions clearly discourages microwaving them, but I actually find them perfectly warmed up and cooked through (without the extra oil) if I just “defrost” it in the microwave for 3 minutes.
My boyfriend surprised me with this when I got to New York:
I’ve wanted one for so long! I love pushing the button on the top. 🙂
Probably the best part is how big it is! I no longer have to wash and spin my kale/greens in batches. YES.
(It is a little bit harder to store, especially in a small dorm kitchen, but it’s just a very minor inconvenience.)
The bottom bowl is also aesthetically pleasing enough to use as a serving bowl for the salad! Cool, right?
Breakfast yesterday was overnight oats with fresh blueberries, almond butter, pumpkin, cinnamon, coconut, and cacao nibs.
No banana because I forgot to buy them! What’s important is that I finally got my hands on fresh organic blueberries. Is it finally blueberry season? They are so plump and delicious. 🙂
Alright, I must get some reading done now.
Have a lovely day!
