thursday things

1. So for whatever reason when I’m at school I get on a crazy overnight oat kick, or just oatmeal kick in general..note my past 2 breakfast’s

OOIAJ=overnight oats in a jar

RIP to this jar..definitely my favorite Justin’s almond butter literally tastes like frosting..i don’t know how else to describe how magical this is

in the mix

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 up plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp sugar free raspberry preserves

I wish I left more almond butter at the bottom of the jar 😦 It was just too good I couldn’t resist eating it by the spoonful

this mornings overnight oat creation

overnight oats are what gets me out of bed in the morning..that along with coffee

in the mix

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 banana
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • topped with justin’s maple almond butter..on sale at target for 5 DOLLARS. I should of stalked up.

2. Yesterday’s lunch was a delicious turkey wrap

in the wrap went turkey, plain hummus, avocado, roasted veggies, spinach, and goat cheese..placed in the panini press (literally the best thing to have in your kitchen..especially as a college student!) eaten alongside a few berries and 1/2 a banana

3. I think yesterday was my first time trying Oikos brand flavored greek yogurt

I picked this up at the store with one of my coupons I got in my Swag Bag at HLS. It was really good but I still prefer chobani 🙂

4. Dinner last night came together in about 10 minutes thanks to some meal prep and a delicious marinade!

i cut up chicken tenders into small pieces and marinaded them for about 3 hours. Marinating chicken makes SUCH a difference in the flavor!

i cooked up the chicken in a pan and then removed the chicken and cooked up some veggies in the same pan with the remainder of the marinade

stir fry’s are the best healthy and easy meal..I normally make about a stir fry a week at school

eaten over brown rice (we bought a big pack of the microwaveable brown rice at costco which has 2 servings per container..perfect for Molly and I to share!) and topped with sriracha sauce of course

5. So totally not food related I am SO SORE. I took a Step and Sculpt class at my gym yesterday and it was really really really really hard. like really hard. I don’t think I’ve ever sweat so much in my whole life (yes I exaggerate ALL the time but i promise this time is no exaggeration). I’m hoping to make it to body pump today but I don’t know if my body is up for it! we shall see

6. and also not food related..TGIT..thank god its thursday!

yes I have a 9am class tomorrow and yes I still plan on going out tonight because I’m a junior in college and that is what I like to do

and also.. 3 DAY WEEKEND. let the fun begin!

I hope everyone has a great day!


Question for ya!: Any fun plans for the long weekend?

  1. I JUST finished eating a oikos for the first time because of HLS coupons. haha! I prefer Chobani, too!

  2. omg I need to try that Almond butter if it tastes like frosting. YUM

  3. Ok girl I think we are food twins! Overnight oats, turkey sandwiches/wraps, Greek yogurt with berries, and stir fries are some of my favourite meals/snacks! I eat each of those at least once or twice a week haha.

    My plans for the weekend involve moving back to school. I can’t wait!

  5. FitnJess says:

    Justin’s almond butter sounds so good. I am always looking for another brand to try and have not tried that one. If it tastes like frosting then I am so in!

  6. Where did you find the vanilla almond butter?! I heard it wasn’t available on the East coast!

  7. Theresa says:

    Oh my goodness, I need to get my hands on some of Justin’s Vanilla AB! Where did you get yours? I totally agree that stir-fry’s are seriously theee easiest thing to whip up for dinner. Yours looks delicious!
