If you cannot tell from my title…
1. You all are really bad at reading.
2. I got my protein powder today!
I was actually supposed to get the package on Friday, but because it came all the way from California, there was a lot of time lost. At least it was all there… They’re forgiven!
The people at the front desk probably thought I was C-R-A-Z-Y because I checked my mailbox literally every two hours for the past four days (and they don’t even have USPS service on Saturdays and Sundays!). I was so excited that I completely skipped lunch and made a large, single-serving banana bread in my microwave.
And… I obviously ate it too fast, because I forgot to take a picture. No worries. There WILL be a next time, I promise.
I do have some an awesome protein powder recipe for you all however. So easy and versatile. You can make it taste like whatever you want!
This WIAW’s staple is protein powder. Obviously. Check out my last two WIAW posts for my staples of green beans and pumpkin. And for those of you who need some ideas with how to eat at college with food allergies, click over here for allergy-dining tips!
A lot of fruit.
For lunch I had my regular salad to start and grilled chicken for my main meal. The chicken I had though wasn’t actually grilled today, it was baked. And it tasted like rubber.
YUK. Well, you lose some and you win some. I just hope I’m better than batting a 500…
I was still hungry after lunch, but I knew that I was going to have a long time of non-stop classes, so I made this little guy to give me a boost of energy in between.
Cookie Dough Energy Ball

112 calories with 2 servings of protein power, water and stevia
Water (or milk)
*Optional: stevia, salt, baking powder/soda (for authenticity), extract (vanilla, almond, butter…), cinnamon, cocoa powder, shredded carrot/zucchini, dried fruit, mashed banana, pumpkin puree, sweet potato puree, agave, carob chips, nuts, berries, whatever you want!
Mix protein powder and other ingredients until it gets hard to stir. Add more protein powder or water if necessary to get desired texture. Then, roll into a ball. Eat or store for later. (These would be really good frozen!)
For dinner I went to the same dining hall and thankfully the actual chef was there (and not some newbie who makes my chicken taste like rubber!).
I also had an unpictured bowl of brown and white rice.
Banana bread batter featuring PROTEIN POWDER!
What food can you not live without? I thought it was obvious. Protein powder!
Do you have to buy some of your food online because you can’t find it in stores near you?
What tv show have you been obsessed with lately? Ally MeBeal. In the past few days I have watched the entire first season on netflix.
Some of my favorite quotes so far:
Ally McBeal: Sometimes I’m more persuasive when I lack conviction.
Richard Fish: Let me tell you something, I didn’t become a lawyer because I like the law; the law sucks. It’s boring, but it can also bec used as a weapon You want to bankrupt somebody? Cost him everything he’s worked for? Make his wife leave him, even make his kids cry? Yeah, we can do that.
