Tonight I made thai green curry with chicken, vegetables, and jasmine rice. All the ingredients were Trader Joe’s semi-prepared food. It’s a great meal to make as a college student. I sautéed the chicken and vegetables in a little bit of olive oil, covering the pan occasionally to help steam the vegetables. Then I added the thai curry simmer sauce and continued cooking. I microwaved the jasmine rice as directed and put the chicken and vegetable curry on top.

Local: Garlic, onion, potatoes and carrots. Plus broccoli, garbanzo beans and not pictured rice and lentils. But being vegan is so expensive. #vegan #veganfood #whatveganseat
I got these babies at Costco today! I think they would make a great breakfast for when I’m in the office. It has oats, dried cranberries, raisins, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, cranberries, and cinnamon. I can make it in the microwave in the office. I’ll let you guys know how it is when I try it!

I would love to try this over some quinoa or another grain! I think that this would make a great meal to make the night before and take to school/work/university. Depending on how much of everything you add it could be 3 carbs, 2 proteins, 1-2 fats, 2 vegetables.

A clementine breakfast cake that I made for christmas brunch tomorrow and some hot cocoa for the cook :)
My grocery store just started stocking a new brand of greek yogurt, so naturally I had to try it! I really liked this flavor and it was a lot more interesting than the plain peach flavor that I usually buy.
I made dinner for my family tonight!
My breakfast was so cute! Also, I’m learning to eat the yolk part of eggs.
