Comfort Food Time

Another whirlwind day….since you all know what I had for lunch, I’ll skip to snack! I saved my grapes from lunch to have with 1/2 cup peanut butter granola for a snack later on and it was perfect. People have been talking about soy yogurt lately and I might have to give it a try soon because I think this peanut butter granola screams for yogurt to be underneath it! I also had some hot cinnamon spice tea.


For dinner tonight I was just craving comfort food. Luckily, I still had one riblet left in the freezer so I reheated that and roasted some of the white asparagus I found at Whole Foods last weekend to go along with it. I also had some couscous and a salad with carrots, cucumber, spinach and a little bit of avocado with Annie’s Dressing on the side.



Tonight at school we have our final written exam. Unfortunately I’ve been so busy this week I haven’t been able to study really 🙁 Let’s hope its not too challenging! We are also baking off our strudels tonight and preparing doughs for tomorrow’s practical. I’m ready for Spring Break!!!!

    I didn’t notice a significant difference in flavor…these were HUGE and very plump though and quite tender! I asked my Chef about them last night and he said the only difference is that they don’t contain chlorofill (sp??) and that’s why they aren’t green. Look for them at Fresh Market, Whole Foods or your local farmers market.

    Wow, that riblett looks so much like real meat! I think I want to try them – your dinner looks very satisfying!

    Hmm looks like I really must try this peanutbutter granola. Right now I have the Nature’s Path Soy Plus granola–it’s 130 kcals/half cup. How does the PB variety compare nutritionally? What’s your favorite way to eat it?

    i absolutely LOVE plain or vanilla soy-yogurt with the PB granola! i feel like i am eating a parfait/dessert. its a little more runny than i expected – very different from fage (which i used to eat pre-veg) but when coupled with the granola it makes a huge difference

    I LOVE white asparagus!! I did a brief study abroad trip in Puerto de Santa Maria in Spain, and my host mom ALWAYS brought it home!

    IMO.. it *does* taste different, but by different I must just mean amazing.. because that’s really what it is!

    If you try a soy yogurt you don’t like.. don’t write it off right away. It’s kinda like the soy cheese deal.. it takes time to find one you like =]

    hi Jenna! I was just wondering what I cereal I should choose for breakfast..these are the kinds offered in the cafe:
    -raisin bran
    -granola (im assuming high sugar content??)
    -honey nut cheerioes
    ..then theres all those yucky high sugar ones which Im sure you wouldnt reccomend anyway:)

    I think you should bring your own cereal OR choose the raison bran. None of those choices have a ton of fiber and nutrients, thats why I think you should bring your own. But…raisin bran seems to be the best choice out of them. There’s no oatmeal?

    Jenna, I HIGHLY reccomend Soy Yo & Co yogurts. The plain one is pretty sweet as is (not tangy like regular plain yogurt) and has about half the sugar content of the sweetened ones. But they’re great too! Blueberry’s my favorite.
