Time To Slow Down.

5 06 2008

Whew. Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, I was extremely busy trying to wrap up graduation stuff and had a dinner with my dad and his boss to “celebrate” my “coming into the world” haha. I didn’t take any pictures of my dinner because my dad’s boss’ wife made the dinner and we ate at their house-I felt it would be a little awkward if not rude. She knew I was vegan though and made an incredible dish of lentil salad served along with a bountiful harvest of veggies and brown rice. It was DELICIOUS. Thank you!!

I’ll post pictures of my breakfast and lunch though. Yesterday was a snacky day, but I felt like my tummy could use the fuel.

Breakfast was fresh fruit. I wasn’t in the mood for a big bowl of oats, so I had 2 peaches, a huge mango, and some celery.

Later on that morning I had a baby banana and a cup of tea+vanilla soy.

Lunch was a veggie wrap with spinach, mushrooms, avocado, and tomato. It was hearty and delicious. I also had some steamed broccoli and a baby banana on the side as well as the rest of the celery from the AM with a bit of salsa (i didn’t finish the salsa). For a snack later that afternoon I had some air popped popcorn and green tea. yum.

Alrighty, now for Thursday morning-I was running really late for my hair appointment so I grabbed a big bowl of strawberries and ate them on the way to the salon.

I know this was a lame breakfast, but it did hold me over until I could come home for lunch. I had another veggie wrap this time with spinach, mushrooms, and tomato only. I went back for a second wrap soon after this one but forgot to snap a picture. Now I’m full, happy, and need to get a move on with my day-after taking a breather of course. 😉

My mom and I went to the H-Mart in Carrollton yesterday and got a lot of Korean food. Dinner tonight is going to be AMAZING! I can’t wait!

Enjoy your thursday!!

Last Day.

3 06 2008

Today marks my last official day of high school since tomorrow is a finals day and I am exempt. 🙂

When I think on it, I don’t find myself too terribly sad. High School was a fun experience, but geez, the drama was sometimes WAY too much than it needed to be. I hated the busy work that came along with “taking up time” as well. haha, overall though, I enjoyed my life at home and look forward to the next chapter of my life. College is going to be an eye opener and I can’t wait until I discover who I really am. According to my parents I won’t know until I hit that time where I really need to pull myself together to get through a situation. I was thinking that I’ve already had a life finding experience, but I guess I’m too young. Well lets hope my “life changing” experience isn’t a life threatening one!

I of course had my typical breakfast this morning except I switched up the grain. I had 1/2 oatmeal and 1/2 oat bran in this heavenly bowl and I topped it with some banana slices, cinnamon, and of course-more of the DELICIOUS blueberry. I also threw in cranberries while the water was boiling to get that plump chew I had yesterday. This bowl did NOT disappoint. It was filling and comforting.

I woke up this morning pretty hungry so while my oatmeal was cooking I had some of my mom’s breakfast. Keep in mind that she is Korean so she eats rice and some sort of soup for breakfast. I tried this for a while a few months ago, but I missed my oatmeal way too much. haha. Anyway, I had a cup of the yulmoo kimchi that she cooked up in a cabbage broth. I didn’t have any rice though because I was going to have oats in a bit. This did a good job of getting me through the cook time. Of course, I had hot tea this morning but without the soy milk this time.

Tuesday… Time is flying by. I hope you all take it easy and enjoy the nice summer day.
