WIAW#30: Snacks

First, let us thank Ms Jenn over at Peas & Crayons for hosting this fabulous party!

Now.. This WIAW is dedicated to the snacks that keep me going all day.. Let’s face it, I’m a snacker… I wish I wasn’t, but I am.. It seems that it helps me get through the day, especially since I’m on campus from roughly 8am-6pm most days.. So breakfast is at home, lunch is at work, then I snack all day.. so let us take a look at the things I actually remember to take pictures of before I snack on them!

New to my snacking list is celery & carrots with hummus. I went a full week with basically having this everyday! I need to start again, because it’s DELICIOUS! (oh, and healthy!)

Fat free cottage cheese! Also healthy! I love that it’s PACKED with protein! Definitely helps me get through the day when my stomach isn’t growling all day!

My absolute go to is an apple! I really don’t discriminate, I’ll eat just about any apple. However, my favorites are Granny Smith, Gala, and Fuji!

Quest bar and coffee! These have been a staple lately because I’ve been working on a presentation and that requires some midday caffeine! Plus the protein bar helps keep me full until dinner!

 

Not pictured (aka things I always scarf down before I remember to take a picture):
Banana (I try to eat one every morning as my morning snack!)
Jalapeno String Cheese — DELICIOUS!
Yogurt -If I don’t eat it with lunch then it becomes a snack for the day!

 

Have a great Wednesday everyone!!!

Friday Things & Minion Love

Heyyo! It’s Friday!! You know what that means?! Well.. It means a few things today..

1. I have to proctor and grade today. YUCK! The worst is grading because we don’t get done proctoring the exam until 1:45pm, which means we don’t get started grading until 2pm. We usually finish grading around 7pm, but I have a feeling it’s going to take us longer today since we’re a grader and a half down.

2. HOWEVER. Grading also means PIZZA! Pizza is yummy. Pizza is lent is yummy – 1. Cheese only. Oh well. But you know why copious amounts of pizza is good today?! CARBS.. AKA: Carbo loading.
