I’m the kind of person that is so lazy that I plan ahead to make time before a busy day to be lazy. No kidding. I will wake up at 5:30 in the morning just so I can have a couple of hours to watch some Netflix, scroll through social media, and eat a nice big breakfast before heading out to my nine a.m. class. I will wake up at 2 in the morning, and all I can think about is “I cannot wait to wake up and have some nice almond butter and jelly toast.” First, I hate being rushed in the morning. Second, I freaking love breakfast food (at least once or twice a week I make breakfast for dinner). While some might think this is odd, this is my trick to having a great day. When I am rushed in the morning, I am in the worst mood and the day is just not pleasant. But when I have the time to wake up my mind and fuel my body before the rest of the world gets moving, my day is much more productive and enjoyable. Here are my favorite healthy, filling, and enjoyable breakfast foods.
I knows it’s not officially summer yet, but every year, I swear, as soon as we hit June the sun shines a little brighter and the air feels a little warmer. It feels like summer now. Finally. I never really liked the heat of summer until I spent a winter in Chicago. Guys, I grew up in Wisconsin, but dang, our winters never seemed that harsh. But for a couple months now we get to enjoy sun and swimming and shorts.
If I were single, I would be a crazy cat lady. To be honest, even now I am borderline crazy cat lady. Whenever I visit my parent’s house, one of the first things I update them on is how my cats are doing and if they have developed any new tricks or habits (one is currently obsessed with the bathtub and the other LOVES to play fetch). The first thing I do when I come home to the apartment after a day out is give each of them a hug and a kiss, because really, they are my babies. I cannot help it, I was raised to love animals, and especially cats.
Okay, I’m just going to clear the air now… I don’t really care for chocolate. Please don’t hate me or judge me. I will eat it every couple months when I get an odd craving, but for the most part I just don’t like it. I find it bitter and it makes me feel almost nauseated when I eat it. That being said, I have a crazy sweet tooth. If you put a cheesecake (or any cake, TBH) in front of me, I will not stop eating it until I make myself sick. While I am not a fan of chocolate or many candies, give me any sort of baked good or pastry item and I am all over it. As someone who is gluten intolerant, having a sweet tooth has become my greatest weakness, because there aren’t many gluten free options AND most gluten free desserts really aren’t that great. On top of all of that, over the past month I have been trying to cut back on my sugar intake which makes having a sweet tooth even harder. I was watching a fitness vlogger the other day (Sarah’s Day, check her out!) and she mentioned raw vegan desserts. Knowing I had similar diet preferences to her’s, I immediately went to Pinterest to check it out.
First I would like to say, Welcome! If you know me at all you are probably aware that 1.) I hate writing and 2.) I REALLY like to rant. So of course I have a love/hate relationship with this new project of mine. If you haven’t caught on by now, my new project is a blog. This blog. Why am I starting a blog when I hate writing? I have realized over the past four months that I have learned so much about myself and my interests, and on top of that, I have a lot of insight that I have gained throughout my short twenty-one years of life that I want to share with you and with everyone. I hope that in the next couple minutes, while you read this, you will get to know me just a little more and hopefully we can all learn from this.
