FINAL FOOD FRUSTRATIONS

As my days at school before summer break are dwindling down, so is my food supply. With nothing more than odds and ends, I’m struggling to pull anything together to make an edible, not to mention cohesive, meal. I REFUSE to go grocery shopping, so I’m working with what I got, and surprisingly, I’ve come up with a few combinations that aren’t too bad!

In need of a filling breakfast to power me through finals and faced with a packet of original bland oatmeal. It was my goal to not only make it edible, but enjoyable. So here’s my solution:photo copy 11

Spice Up Your Study Snack!

This week I was at the library longer hours than I found myself sleeping. So wrapped up in my countless final projects and paper, I forgot to eat, so when I’d return to my room at night, I was ravenous for food! Looking for something a little sweet and a little crunchy, I grabbed a bag of pop corn, popped it into the microwave and within minutes the greatest study snack of all time was created!

By drizzling a little bit of agave nectar onto my freshly popped popcorn followed by a heavy sprinkle of cinnamon, I created the study snack that dreams are made of!

Popcorn is a simple and healthy snack that can be easily kicked up knock by adding season or spice!
