WIAW #13

Happy first Wednesday of May! I can’t believe it’s already that time…I’m almost finished with my second year of college! This  cannot be real life. May is going to be an eventful month: Pi Social (Pi Beta Phi’s philanthropy event where we get pied in the face to raise money for literacy haha!), Cinco de Mayooo, Whole Earth Festival (if you enjoy hippies, henna and delicious vegan food, you’d love this), Houseboats on Lake Shasta, midterms and lots of schoolwork (but that’s a given!).

pi social last year!

after being whip cream pied in the face..

hola amigos!

whole earth festival 2011

HB2K11. so. much. fun.

I’m so happy its MAY!!!!!!

Let’s move on to what I ate on the very first Wednesday of the month!

Breakfast:

smoothie in a bowl: huge handful of spinach, 1 c frozen bluebs, 1 scoop vega vanilla protein powder, cinnamon topped with ezekiel golden flax cereal and bee pollen (i’ve been feeling a little sick lately and am not sure if it’s allergies so i picked up some of this at the co op to see if it makes a difference! look out for it on an upcoming freaky food friday..)

After an intense spin class and some weight lifting, (I focused on arms and butt today. Try doing arm circles with 2 lb weights for a minute or two and your arms will be BURNING!) I was so ready for lunch!

Lunch:

salad with chopped apple, cukes, carrot, blue cheese, nutritional yeast, hemp seeds and balsamic dressing & a dr. praegers veggie burger with spicy brown mustard on the side!

Dinner: 

another smoothie with spinach…seriously cannot get enough of smoothies these days. they are so quick, filling and easy when you’re in a pinch for time (which i have been!). this one was soooo good. spinach, frozen banana, vega vanilla protein powder, psyllium, cinnamon, spoonful of pb topped with cacao nibs! it tasted like a peanut butter cup!

Snack: 

museli (oats, dried blueberries, raisins, pecans, pistachios) + ezekiel golden flax cereal + homemade almond milk (!!!!) + strawberries. perfect study snack!

I also tried one of these delicious cornmeal pancakes my roomsicle Amy made. Find the recipe here..SO GOOD!

Thanks to Jenn for hosting again this week! Check out all the other bloggers yummy eats at her blog.

Questions of the day:

Have you ever tried a green smoothie/added spinach to a smoothie? What did you think?

What are looking forward to in May?

xoxoxox lotsa love,

Kara
