The weekend can’t be over. I refuse to acknowledge that it is! A mini-recap…
Protein pancakes… yes, again.
I beat about 3 oz. of All Whites with a pinch of salt until frothy, then added 20g of whey protein powder, a packet of Truvia, and a mountain of cinnamon. I added a couple of tiny pinches of xanthan gum, but oddly, it didn’t thicken the batter at all! It was still pretty runny, so I had to use my small round skillet. Using less All Whites definitely helped mask the “eggy” flavor, but I guess leaving out the baking soda / powder wasn’t a good idea, because they were pretty thin. Keep trying!
Since today was National Cereal Day, I had to celebrate it!
Strawberry yogurt with Fiber One, Quaker puffed wheat, and Kashi Go Lean. You don’t even want to know how old the latter two are, trust me. I remember finding the Go Lean absolutely tasteless a few years back, but oddly, I don’t seem to mind it now. The negative associations I have with it bother me more.
A salad that was so enormous, I practically could not finish it. What?! Me, have trouble eating vegetables?! Preposterous.
Romaine, broccoli, baby carrots, water chestnuts, tofu steak.
I attempted to work on a project for school, but it was an exercise in frustration… it’s kind of hard to complete an assignment when all of our class time is spent on useless guest speakers instead of actually reviewing what it is that is expected of us! I semi-cleaned my room instead, all while freaking out over my project that isn’t being done. I love weekends, but they make me feel so … useless.
My spring break is next week, and I still don’t know when / if / where I’m going. I find this mildly amusing, since I am so not a last-minute person. I need to arrive at a conclusion, and soon. (Coincidentally, next week is also the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan. Pesach begins on the fourteenth day of Nissan. The preceding craziness began a long time ago, in this house at least. Morgan, if I go into detail, I promise you’ll feel better! 😉 For the record, it is my least favorite holiday of all time.)
In an attempt to “relax,” I decided to watch the Oscars. Whoops. Cablevision and ABC won’t allow me to do that. Well, fine, then. I did this instead.
And I have a headache. I would go to sleep, but, well, my hair is wet. (Is it just me, or does it seem like my hair is always wet?!) So that’s my oh-so-exciting life for today.
Have a glorious start to your week!
