I’m back from Fall Break!
First, I want to thank all of the wonderful people who commented on last week’s WIAW in Stratford, Canada. That post is officially most commented page to date. And that’s all because of you!!
Now, as you may remember, I was pretty excited to go home this weekend because my Fall Break lasted a total of four, long blissful days.
To recap, I spent a majority of that time lounging around and relaxing, but I also did some productive things. On Friday night I went to my old high school’s Homecoming football game. We ended up losing, but I mostly went to catch up with my friends anyways!
Over the weekend my family also rented The Avengers from Redbox. What did you think of the movie? Honestly, I was kind of surprised at how long and boring it was. There were definitely some cool parts, but overall I was left feeling underwhelmed, especially when some people were proclaiming it to be “The Best Movie of the Year!”
During my brother’s homecoming dance my mom and I watched The Five-Year Engagement. Overall better than The Avengers, but not much of a comparison because they are two completely different genres. It was pretty funny, but the middle dragged and was a tad depressing.
One movie I can’t wait to see though is Pitch Perfect. I watched “Fat Amy” on Ellen DeGeneres the other day and she was so HILARIOUS!
*I apologize for the language. Just. Too. Funny. To. Pass. Up.
Let’s get to the real reason why you all are reading, shall we?
It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for another WIAW!
Thanks Peas and Crayons.
Another banana protein bread made in the microwave.
Made with the last of my brown rice protein powder…
Thankfully I got some more in the mail today though!
Unfortunately, the boxes are not that easy to open.
A salad of cucumber slices, lettuce and red grapes.
And blueberry banana bread cake made with my brand new protein powder!
Basically, you just make my microwave banana bread and push some blueberries into the top before cooking. When done, you have a sweet, berry syrup on top and moist bread underneath!
A humongous plate of four grilled chicken pieces and steamed zucchini and yellow squash. (Unpictured plates of lettuce, grapes and shredded carrots).
Remember how I told you in this post that I would explain how to make it? Well, I forgot. But I am going to explain the directions now:
How to Make Quinoa Porridge (Breakfast Cereal)
Step 1: Place uncooked quinoa flakes in large bowl (I use about 1/4-1/3 cup).
Step 2: Fill the bowl with double the water (compared to flakes).
Step 3: Microwave quinoa flakes for 2-3 minutes until thick.
Step 4: Add more water as necessary and microwave until desired consistency.
Step 5: Pour a packet of stevia over top. Before mixing, drizzle a little water over the granules of sweetener to prevent clumping.
I also had a lot of pumpkin protein concoctions.
Including a mash-up of pumpkin puree, protein powder and frozen blueberries.
So, continuing with all of my healthy snacks for the day, I also have a sneak peak of a recipe that I will be posting soon:
A much better version of Gluten-Free Vegan Banana Bread!
What did you do this weekend?
Have you seen The Avengers, The Five-Year Engagement or Pitch Perfect?
Have you watched OSU’s viral half-time video yet? Proud to say that I watched this video before it went viral and its views were still in the thousands!!
