No, not of a teenage drama queen.  I’ll leave that to Lindsey Lohan, although I do confess to seeing that movie when it was in the theater.  Embarrassing.

I confess that I sometimes write my posts for the day before I’ve even eaten everything I’m posting about.  Like right now, I’m about to post about dinner but I’ve yet to eat it or even take pictures of it.

I just assume everything I eat will be good.  And often times I have to go back and erase everything I guessed would be true about my future eats.

I confess I got SO much done this morning.  Including breakfast.

Standard banana oats topped with peanut butter apples, mixed berry compote and nibs.

I confess that I usually just eat nibs so I can write about nibs because I like the word nibs.

I confess that I had a to do list that looked like this this morning.

  • Go to Whole Foods
  • Eat breakfast
  • Empty dishwasher
  • Make lunch
  • Finish homework
  • Abs and arms challenge
  • Clean the horrendous amount of dishes I’ve created making breakfast and lunch
  • Post!

I don’t even know what I was doing for 6 hours at work on Wednesday considering I didn’t get any homework finished.  This includes blog homework.

I confess that I never wash my quinoa.

I made Angela’s Mandarin & Maple Spiced Quinoa and I confess it would have been much better had it not slightly tasted like dirt…

I also confess that I never wash my quinoa because I don’t know how.  It’s too small to use a regular strainer and when I use paper towel it just sticks and I make a huge mess.  A little help?

I confess I gobbled up a good 2.5 cups of quinoa despite the dirt and plan on making this again.

I planned on heating up the quinoa then adding the oranges later but I thought it tasted just fine at room temp.

I confess I only spent $5 at WF today.  Impressive, no?

I confess that I left my apartment at 12 pm and my to do list looked like this

  • Go to Whole Foods
  • Eat breakfast
  • Empty dishwasher
  • Make lunch
  • Finish homework
  • Abs and arms challenge
  • Clean the horrendous amount of dishes I’ve created making breakfast and lunch
  • Post!

I confess that I’ve totally forgone eating my own homecooking on Thursday nights and rely solely on my mom to feed me.  Thanks, Mom.

Say you’re having crab cakes and I’ll promise to be knocking on your front door.

Say you’re serving Udi’s potato salad + asparagus in addition to the crab cakes and I’ll even be willing to return your own food processor to you.

Yes, I surrendered the beloved cuisanart to my mom, which I guess is fair considering she’s the rightful owner.

Papers are officially done and all I have to do is make it through 2 classes then I’m on break 🙂

Hope you’re having a great Friday too!

    Hello! From one healthy living blogger to another, I wanted to reach out because I may be moving out to Boulder in January. I was wondering if you knew of anyone looking for a roommate for the spring semester. Nice to meet you!

      Hi Astrid! Thanks for stopping by. I don’t know anyone who needs a roommate but if I hear of anything I’ll let you know! You’ll love Boulder 🙂

    I love your peanut butter apple method for oats! I must try that!

    I usually don’t wash my quinoa either – but it tastes just fine!

    Only $5 at Whole Paycheck? That is quite a feat! I think by merely entering the store, 20 bucks seems to fly out of my pocket….and I can never leave without blowing 50 by the end of the shopping spree. Whole Paycheck is sneaky like that.
