8th Continent Yum Factor


How's it going? I'm doing good. School is going well. Busy as ever. I got a 93 on my nutrition test, which was hard, so I was happy. I got an 88 on my super duper difficult Bio test. I was kinda happy. I would have been happier with an A.

Lately, alot of my food is pretty tame. Today was a bit more interesting, so I thought I'd share.

I was over at Henry's this weekend and 8th Continent Chocolate Soy was on sale. Before you gasp in horror (because we all know 8th Continent is the WORST soy milk ever), I don't drink the stuff straight up. Silk, yes. 8th Continent, shudder. Anywho, so I've been using it in my coffee. I don't use much, but it gives me that almost-as-good-as Starbucks taste without the stupid $3.85 price. Ouch. On the days I need the atmosphere, I'll pay that price, but if I just want coffee. Home it is.

This morning, I experimented by using it in my oatmeal. I always make my oatmeal 1/2 milk, 1/2 water. I used a teaspoon Almond Butter in there as well. It was really good. Reminded me of Cocoa Wheats, which I don't eat because Oats have more fiber. Banana on the side. Excuse the blurry picture. You know the story w/my crappy camera.


No snack today, but I had a slightly early lunch because of it. Small baked potato w/a smidge of cheese and black beans. A tiny bit of 0% greek on top. Maters on the side. I'm working on my colorful veggie intake. I tend to avoid non-green veggies for some reason.


Ok, so today is a writing day, which means I'm off to Starbucks. Why Starbucks? Because they don't have internet and I actually get work done. Since I live in a house with 3 men, two of which are home all day long, and my office is in the dining room (open to living room), getting writing (which, for me, requires alot of concentration) is just not an option. Yet, somehow starbucks with its hustle and bustle works perfectly. Go figure. I don't get it either.

Bye friends!!!

    congrats on doing so well on your tests!!!

  5. I came across your site and really liked it. I'm going to put it on my blogroll. I really like your outlook by the way.

  6. You know Coco Wheats? That is my favorite hot cereal. Probably not so healthy, but I used to heap dark brown sugar on top. It was such comfort food.

    I agree that 8th Continent is too sweet. My fav soy milk is EdenSoy plain.

    I've missed keeping up with you. I'm glad to hear that your classes are going well. We just returned to B.A. this week.


I heart comments!
