Last week of eats

January 22, 2010

WOW! The comments I received from all of you on my ramble about slow food, and taking time with our lives were incredible.  I did not expect such awesome responses. So thank you for that!  A lot of you either completely agreed with me or thanked me for the reminder to take a breath!  Which is what I need RIGHT.  NOW.  Hehe.. just kidding. But really… I’m leaving tomorrow!!

First and foremost, I finally grew a pair and bought myself a nice camera!  A lot of you know I’ve been coveting the Canon Rebel for months now.. but I finally decided on a Canon Power Shot S90, mainly because it will be more accessible than the Rebel (like if I want to snap a picture of my chef instructor or dinner plate!).  I LOVE it so far.  It has a lot of the same capabilities as a DSLR so I’m very pleased with it.  Still have to majorly read the manual though.

Below is my last week of eats at home!  Enjoy. :)

Currently: Friday lunch: 2 boiled eggs, raw veggies+salsa, avocado+frozen banana+xantham+guar+ice+water+stevia in the bullet, topped with coconut granola!

Last breakfast in Tucson: My final batch of cocoa-coconut-protein pancakes a la Heab.  Topped with dark chocolate shavings and coconut butter. :'( Tears of joy.

My last bowl of protein ice cream. Topped with a crumbled dark chocolate fudge baby!  Have you guys entered Katie’s vita mix giveaway yet??? Because you should. All you have to do is make one her amazing vegan recipes!  I would suggest a chocolate-covered one, naturally.

This will probably be my last fudge baby for a while too, seeing as NO MAGIC BULLETS allowed in the dorm!  Do you remember when I told you I was planning on sneaking one in? Well that was before I knew specifically what wasn’t and what was allowed. Yeah, they’re not. BOO.

Dark chocolate fudge babies rock my socks. When I make mine I basically combine the hot cocoa version with the macaroon version. SO GOOD. Especially on top a bowl of protein ice cream.

A big green salad for lunch Thursday. With chicken and drizzled tahini.

Breakfast Thursday: my last egg white with toast breakfast.

Dinner Wedneday: chicken breast with coconut butter, massaged kale salad, and raw carrots.

My last Americano at my favorite hang out/free wifi/best pizza/best deli/best cookie/best coffee SPOT: Time Market!   It’s located down by the university fyi.  (If you’re ever in the Tucson area. haha.)

$1.60 for seriously, the best Americano in Tucson, AZ.

Also the best pizza! I don’t eat pizza a lot, but hot damn! This is my favorite.

Brick oven/wood fired thin crust, veggie pizza. Lunch Wednesday.

Breakfast Wednesday: a fried egg in a heart hole. With leftover ~1/2 cup greek yogurt with coconut granola (sadly, I was out of chia.) This artist’s breakfast was inspired by Maggie.

Dinner Tuesday: with my mama at a local Greek restaurant, Fronimoe’s.

Greek salad with Athenian chicken.

Leftover tortilla soup for lunch on Tuesday. Notice the “blogging station” and the brother eating breakfast, while I’m eating lunch. Typical.

Are those New Moon pictures in the background I’m spotting? ;) Don’t hate.

I made Madeline‘s boyfriend’s recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup for dinner on Monday!  It was delicious.

————————– Pictures below are from the old camera————————————–

A random chicken salad thrown together with cucumber slices, salsa and brussel chips! (Last Friday lunch)

Look at that crispyness!

Kabocha egg white pancake breakfast Monday.

With tahini+maple. Enough said.

Dinner (last Friday)= poached eggs with a whole lot of roasted vegetables.

Kabocha+protein powder puree.  Sunday breakfast.

Custard oats in a jar. (Last friday breakfast.)

OATIES! From Heab.  Best cookies ever.  Basically, I’ve decided: the best granola bar I’ve ever had in my life in cookie form.  My family devoured this can of cookies in no time at all.

The biggest bowl of protein ice cream I’ve ever had. (Sunday?)

;) hehehe.

Last night at home will be spent with dinner with my girlfriends and packing the last of my stuff. Packing is such a pain, right?! Gah. We’re flying out to NY too, so its not like I can pack two cars worth of stuff. As of right now, I think I’m bringing three large suitcases (but they have to be less than 50 lbs blah), hang up bag, carry on, and a purse.  Craziness.  I don’t start school till Tuesday, so I’ll keep you guys up to date with what’s going on. Like if I live through the cold. YIKES!

Seeee you later Tucson!

XO,

    Beeks,
    I can’t believe you leave tomorrow. Oh my gosh!!! So many adventures await you, sans Magic Bullet of course. ;)

    You know I love all your eats. Seriously, I think we could eat every meal together and both be so happy. One of the things I love about you.

    Best of luck with your packing and your travels. These next few years are going to be AMAZING…and I promise Oatie filled care packages whenever you need them. :)

    Thank you so much for your commit on “skinny vs. healthy” it is very encouraging.

    All of your eats look wonderful (as usual) and good luck as you head off!

  7. January 22, 2010 6:08 pm

    Good luck Bekah! All of your final “home eats” look great, and memorable! I like your idea of putting blueberries in your salad. Hope the CIA is wonderful for you! Can’t wait to hear about it. Good luck, and I wish you safe travels.

  11. January 22, 2010 8:22 pm

    OMG.. wonderful food, DELISH, in fact, a new camera AND you’re moving?!?! Good luck, dear.. cannot wait to keep reading about your adventures!

    No magic bullet in dorms? LOL really? WHY? GOD, back in the day, I had like everything in my lil closet of a room. (maybe you can sneak one!)

  12. January 22, 2010 8:41 pm

    Beeks- I feel like you are a prisoner on death row: THis was my last ever protein ice cream, this was my last pancake…Poor YOU!! ACK You’re going to culinary school! You’ll be wondering how you could have ever eaten so ghetto before (KIDDING!)

    Oh and you need to name your ice cream: either avonana or bananocado. Which do you prefer?

    I hope that you have a great trip out there and can’t wait to hear all of the fun you get up to. Your camera rocks too!

    Funny that it’s typical that your bro is eating brekkie when you’re eating lunch. Puh, BROTHERS!

    And finally, yes, oaties are the best energy bars in cookie form ever.

    Don’t forget that you can freeze all of your eats- like your fudge babies and oaties! Make about 400 for the semester and freeze them. They won’t put a restriction on how many freezers you can have right? ;-)

    B! It’s me K…goodness I felt like a tear was coming on when I got to your U-haul picture. Do you know how sad I am gonna be when I come home for breaks and you are not there! I am sooo excited for you though and cannot wait to plan a visit. Love you and be inspired by the lights!
    xoxo-K
    P.s. thanks for the hit about the two car loads of stuff ;)

    $1.60 for seriously, the best Americano in Tucson, AZ.= A total value.

    The fact that you have just posted a million amazing pictures AND Linked back to some of the nicest girls in the b’spher (katie, heather, deb, madeline) and totally rocked out their recipes in your casa = priceless.

    The fact that you’re going to be in NY, away from home, soaking in new culture, friends, school, etc…your life is going to explode. It’s going to be so big and full, beyond your wildest dreams. Enjoy the ride my friend, if you’re ever in a jam and have no one to call at 2am and are freakin about something, I am pretty sure I have been there :) and you can call anytime :)

    love you hon!!!!!

    Hey! I’ve been reading for a little while and I thought I would de-lurk and comment.
    I just wanted to say that I am so inspired by your culinary creativity, your complete embrace of foods, and your healthy attitude towards eating. Everything looks delicious. And I know that if anyone can continue to create culinary masterpieces even in a dorm room without your beloved bullet, it’s you! Good luck with the move-in and the transition to the collegiate life!!

    Hi Bekah I found your blog yesterday, and have since read every entry you made, haha. At first I almost underestimated you because of your age but I found that you’re just as awesome as all the other blog ladies who have many years on you!

    I’m excited to see what you do in the CIA, and how college life in NY works out for you! I’m from NY (albeit the other side of the state…). I do want to tell you that when I was in college, the rule of thumb about appliances in the dorms was that you could HAVE them, but not use them in your room, rather in the communal kitchens (of course, we locked the door and proceeded to use a toaster oven, hot plate, electric kettle, rice cooker, etc. It was awesome.) As long as the RA never saw a plugged in appliance, we were golden.

    Anyways I’m happy to have found your blog, and interested in seeing what comes next!

  22. January 24, 2010 10:41 am

    shoop girl…way to go out with a bang!!!! all your eats look INCREDIBLE!!!

    i cannot wait to hear all about your culinary adventures. you will get used to the cold :)

    safe travels my dear!!!!

  23. January 24, 2010 2:44 pm

    Ah your new camera is amazing! Your pictures look unbelievable. I really need to jump on the protein ice cream wagon…I want it every time I read your blog.

    Good luck with all the moving and changes!
