Before I get to this post.. I edited my “About Beek” page with a few new pictures and a more appropriate “about” for the beginning of 2010. :)
Confession: I am leaving home to go to the best culinary school in the country in less than two weeks- basically paying thousands of dollars to be fed ten Gourmet-worthy meals A WEEK… and guess what???
I already miss blogger food.
- The amount of kale, broccoli and raw carrots I eat in a week will hardly even fit in a mini fridge.
- Toasters are not allowed in dorm rooms.
- I’m sneaking in my magic bullet, but I’m pretty positive the motor alone will have me banned from social dorm floor activities. (Who is that freak with the blender and huge ass bin of protein powder?!!)
- My stash of raw balls and nut butters come in a close second to my shoe and sweater collection. There is simply no room for 10+ jars of nut butter in a college dorm room. Ah.
That being said.. these last two weeks I’m fully immersing myself in 100% food+meals that I probably won’t see again until I’m living in my own apartment- oh I don’t know.. THREE YEARS FROM NOW?!?!!!
Toast with PB+honey+banana with egg whites.
Honeycrisp with lots of cinnamon, alongside Protein Ice Cream with about a tablespoon of homemade cranberry sauce- giving the ice cream a nice pink hue.
Eaten with a sample of pumpkin granola and a grapefruit from Deb‘s yard. (Yes, Deb- I really savored your citrus!)
An Ezekiel english muffin with Deb‘s roasted almond butter, honey and banana.
Check out the color of that raw honey?? I don’t know where my parents buy our honey- but we buy it by the gallon. I’m not even kidding- best honey I’ve ever had. I grew up on this stuff.
Lunch- tuna salad, raw veggies, hummus, tabbouleh, radishes.
Acai smooothie. With pumpkin granola.
Salad with chicken, veggies, cranberry sauce, tahini.
Protein ice cream pimped out with more ice+water than usual, fluffled in the vita instead magic bullet, leading to a monstrous KERF bowl full of espresso-vanilla-protein-shake. (There was even un-documented leftovers that I slurped up from the vita mix.)
Magic bullet made cocoa protein ice cream. Less voluminous, but oh-so creamy. Topped with coconut+cacao nibs.
Massaged kale, two boiled eggs, and a whole carrot with salsa.
Don’t fret- when I do eat in my dorm, you most likely will be seeing plenty of raw veggies that will keep- i.e carrots, broccoli, cucumber etc., microwaved egg whites, oatmeal, yogurt, canned tuna, apples…………
Meh, that’s all I got for now.
Just wanted to take some time to thank you all for being so helpful with my dorm+cold weather questions and fears. Seriously the responses I got on that post were incredibly helpful. And thank you to those of you who keep returning and giving me so much love week after week. It means the world.
While at school, the whole point of this blog is to keep up with it! I know my google reader-ing will inevitably have to shrink quite a bit, but just know that if you ever want to chat- you can always e-mail, and I’m still reading your blog! I may even have to save blog reading for the weekend- but I will always eventually catch up.
But I’m getting ahead of myself ! Hope you all had a great Wednesday.. and lots of love.
