Day with Mom!

Hey everyone!

So, as you can see I bought a new theme! This one is called Pretty Young Thing and I absolutely love it because its super girly and fun!

Anyways, I woke up this morning from the most awful sleep I’ve had in a long time. The winds were so strong last night that they were shaking my balcony doors constantly! I hardly got any sleep! Hopefully the winds will be tamer tonight!


On the bright side, Alana made a delicious breakfast this morning. In the mix? All of my favorite things!

Oats with dried fruit (cherries, raisins, and apricots), cinnamon, milk, a touch of brown sugar, a chopped apple,and toasted pecans! What better way to start off the day? 🙂

After breakfast, I showered and got ready to go shopping with my mom. We went to a new store that opened while I was at school and then we stopped at Trader Joe’s to buy some cookie butter that Allie raves about!

We were disappointed to hear that they were all out for a month! 😦

I’m checking 2 other locations tomorrow! HA!


We got home and we were all starving so I quickly made my homemade soup! So healthy and perfect for the cold weather!

Tofu Shirataki Vegetable Soup

makes 5 servings


  • 2 bags of Tofu Shirataki Noodles
  • 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms
  • pepper for taste
  • cooked chicken or turkey cut into chunks


  1. Drain the noodles and set aside to dry.
  2. Bring chicken broth to a boil.
  3. Add chopped veggies and let cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add in the noodles and chicken or turkey meat.
  5. Season with pepper to taste and serve!

Sadly, I didn’t get to fit in any exercise today but I’m glad I’ve been exercising more than I did while I was at school!

I’m off to see my best friend and catch up on college life! We’re going out to Indian later, so I’ll be back with another post 🙂

But until then, here are some eats from the past few days that you may enjoy.

Failed attempt at a salad from AEPhi. But still satisfying!

In the mix: romaine lettuce, beets, broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, green beans, dried fruit, cashews, feta, and parmesan cheese.

Nana’s Swedish Meatballs over whole wheat Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Pasta. Sprinkled with parmesan and shredded cheddar!

Turkey, cheese, lettuce, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and whole grain mustard spread on squaw bread! DELISHHHH!

And in case anyone is wondering about my Recipe Page, I’m working on it! I promise!

See you all tonight with a dinner post! xo
