Irish salad. Shaken not stirred.

When you live in a dorm you dont have the time or the required amount of clean silverware to toss your salads. Thats where tubberware comes in.


I called today’s salad an irish salad because the base is cabbage. Also included are bean sprouts, black beans and craisins. Topped off with some balsamic dressing. Today, I’m taking this one to go.


Simple hummus sandwich


Since my breakfast was pretty hardy I decided to make lunch a little more light. So I made my favorite sandwich. It even looks healthy.

My favorite vegan sandwich

Everything bagel thin toasted
Layers of tomato, bean sprouts, and cucumbers
(If you have avacados… Throw that on there!)

Rainy day brunch

After the workout I satisfied my tired muscles with a mug of warm chocolate milk and some jazz music. Somehow this seemed fitting for a rainy day like today.

After that I made what I consider to be my new favorite omlette.


Asparagus, pesto, provolone omlette

2 eggs
Butter for the pan
1 slice of provolone cheese
5 stalks of asparagus
1 tbsp of pesto sauce

Boil water and chop the asparagus into 1/4 inch chunks. After the water is boiling add salt and the asparagus chunks for about a minute or until they start to becone a brighter green. Drain and put aside.
Grease a pan with butter or margarine and warm to medium eat. Beat together 2 extra large eggs and add them to the pan. Allow the eggs to cook and be sure to evenly distribute throughout the pan. After they start to firm up top with provolone cheese and the aspargus. Then fold the omlette over and give it about 90 seconds on both sides. To serve spread pesto on top and enjoy while its hot.

Morning cardio 4/26

I am not sure how but I somehow built up the energy today to wake up two hours early and make it to the gym…

Today’s workout

30 minute hill interval walk/run on the treadmill

The hill function was automatic on the machine I only alternated the speed. Calories burned… About 250. Gave me so much energy without wearing me out. Highly reccomended.

Let’s Give This a Try

Me in my hometown... Detroit, Michigan.

Being broke, out of shape, tired, and full of what feels like pounds and pounds of munchie satisfying food, I think I need a way to pull myself together. This is why I am starting this blog. As a way to feel as though other people are going to be looking at what I do to stay sane and hopefully with that knowledge I will follow through. So thank you in advance.
