Creativity come back!?

19 02 2009

All this mental energy towards studying has left me totally uncreative when it comes to food…

Breakfast included steel cut oats and on top was a little smoothie, peanut butter, blueberries, kashi cereal and wheat germ…

Arnold Whole Wheat Thin with egg whites- I had one with mustard and capers and the other on top of salsa and hot sauce.

Salad: it was the last of an organic italian bag I grabbed at whole foods with goddess dressing- and then I heated up frozen veggies after I finished the lettuce…

Jeff made it while I was at my test: Whole wheat penne with a delicious tomato sauce and perfectly cooked chicken and sprinkling of reduced fat italian cheese

the other bag of organic greens I grabbed at whole foods with some fresh cut veggies.

In between study sessions I decided to do a 4 mile run with some extra leg work at the gym. It felt AWESOME! I alternated speeds between 9.5 and 9 for my faster pace and maintained a speed of 7.7 otherwise. Such a great sweat!

oh goodness.. Exam is done! Head hurts! Thank you for all your good luck comments! I certainly love to see them! The first half was short answer but the second half was just one long essay question on Vitamin D.

we have a quiz tomorrow on terminology- but right now I need major veg time on the sofa.


SKI TRIP IN 2 Days!!!!!!! I haven’t gone skiing in forever! Jeff has gone skiing NEVER! Timmy, Brit and Cyrus and Stacy and Hanz and maybe one more couple from Chicago are going- It will be such a blast.

Quick creative tip – try fresh ricotta cheese for a new addition to meals…it’s high protein, low fat, easy, and delicious! It’s a great alternative to the usual mozzarella.

Your foods still look so great though! That fresh ricotta tip above is a good one – I need to try that!

I’m seeing the nutritionist next Thurs – I am looking forward to it and will tell you about it after!

Yah!! Thank you everyone for commenting, I have been so busy with studies and running now that I haven’t had a ton of time to comment!

Skiing/Snowboarding in West Virginia-

That is a good tip for ricotta but I have definitely used ricotta with lots of things. I love making up desserts with it- My creativity was just on hold temporarily because I have just wanted to eat as fast as I could so I could get back to studying or run or ski related stuff!
