Operation Egg White

I can't believe it's already Friday noche!  Where did the week go???  I'm not complaining because I am quite excited to get this semester under my belt but it sure does make me feel like I have a lot more to do in a lot smaller time period and before I know it, summer classes will be starting.

Today I attended the RD registration exam review class.  It was a long day but a LOT of useful information.  The fun continues tomorrow all day as well.  I am glad I still have a year left before I have to take it but I am a bit jealous of those who are going to be RDs in just a couple months!

Lately I've been loving my oatmeal for breakfast!  I've been adding flax seed, whole grain drink, pumpkin, shredded coconut, fruit, and agave.  

The only problem is that it is not keeping me satisfied until lunch!  Tomorrow I'm going to try operation oatmeal egg white.  Hopefully adding a bit more protein will keep me full until lunchtime!  The days I have been eating two eggs and toast are the days that my tummy doesn't start growling until it is actually the right time to eat!

Fruit season is upon us!  I've been loving the fresh strawberries and grapes too!  They are so good to pair with breakfast, to add in a smoothie or just for a snack.

These gala apples are the yummmmmmmiest!

Why oh why did I not grow up putting avocado on my turkey sandwiches???  Really, life changing.  Or at least lunch changing.

Even though I went grocery shopping earlier this week I feel like I ran out so fast!  I don't want to go back because I'm going to The Mitten next week.  I don't like to stock my fridge when I won't be here to enjoy all of the goodies!  I have been doing a lot of salads and tacos + taco leftovers.  I love leftovers...they are so convenient.

I must go rest my brain for another full day of learning, learning and more learning tomorrow.

Night ya'll!

  1. Oatmeal keeps me full if I don't add too much sugary stuff to it!! Try egg whites and pb. Sandwiches definitely require avocado - just adds creaminess!!
