I am currently back at school, since last Monday actually, so it’s the start of a new semester. While I do think break went by too fast, I am happy to get started with the new school year. More on that later cause right now I owe you some food pics!
On my last day before going back to school, my sisters treated me by going out to the Chicago Diner. Here’s what my sister’s had:
Since they were still serving brunch when we arrived, I decided to order…
Of course, the food was smashin’ and we all cleaned up our plates. We were so full we couldn’t even fathom the idea of dessert, so we didn’t get any. The French Toast was so good, it tasted just like funnel cake! Another yummy meal from the Chicago Diner. Ah, how I love this place!
When I arrived back to campus, our university had opened up our brand new student union. In this new union, I can actually find some pretty good (and healthy!) vegan meals and let me tell you, it is so nice to know that sometimes when time is short, I can just go pick something up from the union instead of hastily trying to make my meal and scarf it down before my next class.
During one of these times, this little fella caught my eye…
I’ve never had sushi before so I was excited to finally get to try this ethnic treat and boy, was I glad I did. I am officially a sushi lover now. Gosh, is this what I’ve been missing all this time? No wonder these little rolls have so many fans. The taste is interesting, where it can be slightly sweet and have an “ocean” taste to them. I really enjoyed them and I’m glad my school sells them though I do wish they could get some that have brown rice.
My school is also stocking up on a favorite of mine…
Larabars! I got to try two flavors.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again – I’m NOT a chocolate fan, but for some reason, I’m loving cocoa powder! Because I love the Jocalats and I really loved the Chocolate Coconut Chew bar. It was really good with just a perfect hint of coconut. I can’t say the same thing about the Cherry Pie flavor though. I have tried this flavor before and wasn’t a big fan of it the first time, but I thought I would give it a second chance, and I still wasn’t really into the tartness. Oh well, I’ve got many other fab flavors to choose from. 🙂
Oh! I almost forgot about this AMAZING raw ice cream I got before leaving for school.
On our way back home from the Chicago Diner my sister saw that we found Karyn’s other restaurant. Simply called Karyn’s, it is her raw vegan gourmet restaurant that also has a small cafe/store attached to it. We decided it’d be cool to check it out, since we were in the area. Lately, I’ve been really intrigued by the raw food movement, and it’s something I would totally love to do. While browsing through the store, there were so many things I wanted to buy, but one thing that caught my eye was this raw ice cream. This ice cream was so good, guys! It was creamy and the vanilla flavor was spot-on with a subtle taste of coconut. Really good!
That’s all the food pics I have for you for now. I really would love to get back to posting my daily eats, so I will try to make an effort, but we’ll see how my schedule goes. Speaking of schedules, this semester I am taking ALL nursing courses, which is new for me, since I’ve always had to do an elective. Though I am thrilled to be focusing on solely nursing, I am sort of going to miss taking other classes. This semester I am taking:
- Nursing Care of the Adult II (aka Med Surg)
- Gerontological Nursing
- Service Learning Project in Health Care in Central America (I’m going on a medical missions trip during Spring Break to Costa Rica and Nicaragua! Exciting!)
- Nursing Care of the Childbearing Family (aka OB Nursing! The field I want to go into!)
Oh, goodness, that took longer than expected! Got to go guys, but like I said, I will try my best to post more daily eats! You all have a good night. 🙂
