How to study for finals: sit down with your notes, turn on Netflix, watch the Office until 10 pm, make banana bread muffins
I bought a bunch of bananas to eat after my workouts.. and then finals week came around and the gym was just not an option. So… I made banana bread.. muffins. Muffins are always more fun
I (per usual) used a Cooking Light recipe but made a few substitutions:
Parkay for butter (for we had no butter)
Greek yogurt for regular yogurt
1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose flour instead of 2 cups all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk.
Place sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 1 minute). Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist. Spoon batter into a muffin pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
and then my roommate’s boyfriend’s dog tried to eat them
I’m getting real darn creative tonight… But it was quite tasty
I was tempted to whip up some mexican rice-a-roni and then saw that it called for butter, so I chose to try to see if I could make Mexican quinoa instead. Of course, I googled “homemade taco seasoning” after I had already made up my own concoction, but it was pretty close to what was called for, so that worked out well…
To reiterate what I’ve said about nearly every other recipe, I don’t pay attention to how much I put in, I just go for it until it tastes edible
Ingredients: 1/4 cup quinoa (dry), 1/4 bell pepper chopped, 1/4 cup sliced onion, 1/2 tbsp canola oil | garlic powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, cumin, oregano, paprika, salsa | avocado
Cook quinoa according to directions on package. Once cooked mix with spices - I used mostly garlic powder, chili powder, and salsa, and then a little salt, cayenne, cumin, oregano, and paprika. Mix small at a time and add more to taste.
In a plastic bag, add onion, bell pepper, canola oil, and a little bit of all the spices. Shake until vegetables are covered. In a large nonstick skillet, cook bell peppers and onions on high heat, stirring often, for 2 minutes, then turn down to medium and cook until onions are translucent, stirring often.
Top quinoa with vegetables and serve with lightly salted avocado.

This week I’m going to try to run 3 miles each day. I’m letting myself take a break if I need to, but walking half a mile every ten minutes doesn’t count. The distance that counts is the distance I run.
please stop posting pictures of cheese boards and eggs being fried in gallons of butter
//you can do whatever you want really… i just chuckle a little bit whenever those things come up on my dash
