WIAW: Flashback

Hi Guys!

It’s time for another WIAW! Short weeks make Wednesday come quick!

I have some pretty good eats to catch you up on from the past couple of weeks…but we’re keeping it short and sweet today because I have to get back to my studying. I have my last final today!! That means as of 5pm this evening I’ll be a graduate of The Ohio State University!

I’m not doing the whole graduation thing since I’ve done it twice already. I even gave a speech at my last one…remember?! I can’t believe that was a year ago! Plus I hate big crowds and OSU is, well, HUGE!

Anyways…when I first started this journey three years ago, I could barely see the light at the end of the tunnel. And now it’s here! All that’s left is my internship! I now have my second bachelor’s degree- a BS in Dietetics :)

Anyways…let’s review those eats shall we?

I’ve been snacking on lots of red peppers lately…
and eating TONS of green beans!
Plus some funny shaped apples and lots of yogurt & granola of course :)

I got to meet up with some of my fellow interns for next year.
We went to Pita Pit. It’s THE BEST!
During our garage sale I had Chipotle for the first time in about a year.
I ate 1/2, hubby ate the leftovers
Yogurt & Granola + PB & J toast = standard lunch for me :)

Top Right: Veggie Burger, Kabobs & 1st corn of the summer at my in-laws
Bottom Left: Standard Stirfry Goodness
Bottom Right: Shrimp & Goat Cheese Tacos- HEAVENLY
Middle: Pad Ke Mao w/ shrimp from our fav Thai place

While we were at happy hour a couple weekends ago,
I splurged and got a milkshake.
With alcohol in it. Best decision ever.
I’ve also been whipping up some delish banana froyo lately!

And now your’e all caught up!

Enjoy :)

 PS. Get psyched! Foodie Penpals reveal day is TOMORROW!!!

P.P.S: I’ve also been snacking on these Healthy Bites made by my girl Lindsay.

She makes all different kinds, geared towards different things like workout recovery, high fiber, etc. She can customize and make ANY flavor you can dream up in your mind. I started off with a mix pack of recovery bites in chocolate, vanilla and PB&J. They were all delicious. I just ran out and i’m getting ready to order a custom flavor- ginger peach!! Cannot wait. Check them out if you’re looking for a fun new snack :)

    Do you have your internship lined up?
    Can’t wait to participate in foodie pen pals this next month!

    • thank you! i’m actually a DTR already…so my last degree was the associates i got for the diet tech program so i was in your shoes a couple years ago! i also have a prior bachelors in psychology so not totally unrelated but not exactly related :) i will be doing my internship at ohio state as well! can’t wait. good luck to you! hope the year flies by!

  6. Aw man I’m so sorry you’re still studying. I even thought my last final (the 18th) was late!! But then you graduate which is wonderful! I skipped my high school graduation and am graduating early from college in January and want to skip that one but my parents need their sentimental moment. I’ve actually been thinking of getting a second BA but money….
    What are those crisp like things in the snack montage?

    Right now I’m at the point where it sometimes seems like I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have three more years until I have my degree in dietetics at this point. I know in the end it will all seem like a whirlwind though!
