I am cheating a bit this week by not sharing a fresh, new recipe. To be honest, I am not sure next week will be different. Things are crazy busy so I'm slacking a bit. In numbers news, things really suck. I exercised to the point of exhaustion last week, ate pretty well (with the exception of Mexican food on Wednesday) and I was up 2.6 pounds. Don't really feel like talking about it so I will move on and keep going this week. I'm hoping my anxiety decreases along with the need for "stress eating" once I have all of my grades turned in.

I wanted to share a new grocery fave. I love Sandwich Bros. They have awesome little chicken and burger pitas that make a great snack. Now, they have this breakfast pita with turkey sausage and egg whites with cheese in them. They are only 150 calories and take about a minute in the microwave. In theory, I'd love to whip up breakfast every morning but right now it's not feasible. These are perfect for an on the go breakfast. You can buy them in bulk at SAM's.

In last week's food prep news, I made more chicken breasts and chicken burgers. I am sharing because 1) I'm lazy and it's the only cooking I did this past week and 2) I tried something different with the chicken burgers. I added taco seasoning mix, a bit of light sour cream and salsa to the meat and then made the patties. I added cheese and salsa to the burger when I made it and I called it a taco burger. It was delicious! The taco seasoning added so much flavor which is nice because it changed things up a bit.

Most people that know me know that I write for a local paper called the Leaf and it focuses on art and entertainment around the state. In case you aren't Facebook friends with me, I wanted to let you know that you can catch my column, "Chasing the Sun" every couple weeks at    Check it out if you want. I hope you all have a great week.


  1. I'm hoping the next few weeks go by quickly and pleasantly for you! I know it's a busy/stressful time. :/ <3

  2. Oh! And, for those that haven't read the Read the Left "Chasing the Sun" columns, DO IT! They're incredible!!

    1. Thank you! I will stay medicated and make it through, haha. :)
