Spring has finally made it to Wisconsin! I’ve shed like 10 minutes off my “getting ready to go somewhere” time just by losing all the jackets, hats, gloves, etc. It’s pretty great to not even worry about a jacket anymore! 🙂
After my afternoon classes yesterday, I decided a baked sweet potato was just what I was craving.
Organic baked sweet potato topped with Trader Joe’s Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
With a glass of unsweetened almond milk.
After dinner, I went to a Power Yoga class which, as usual, was fabulous! There’s something about actually being IN the studio instead of just doing a podcast in my apartment that helps motivate me.
Last night, I downloaded Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome to try out as new web browsers. Matt recommended Google Chrome to me, and my dad (literally a computer expert) said both browsers are superior to Internet Explorer. I figured I’d try them both out and see which one – if either – I like better than Internet Explorer. I started with Google Chrome, and I’m slowly getting the hang of it. What browser do you use? And any tips for using Mozilla and/or Google Chrome?
I woke up this morning at 5:50am, just at the sun was rising. Lovely start to my day! 🙂
I decided to try out the new Kashi cereal for breakfast that I had bought at Whole Foods on Sunday – Simply Maize.
I topped off my cereal with unsweetened almond milk and an organic banana on the side.
When I first poured the almond milk in, I couldn’t believe how noisy the cereal was! It was snap, crackle, and popping away! Maybe it was the “snap, crackle, pop – Rice Krispies” already in my mind, but my first thought when trying the cereal was RICE KRISPIES. I actually thought the cereal would be sweeter, being that it looks almost glazed, but it actually wasn’t very sweet at all. In fact, the taste was a little plain and bland for me. However, the texture was great and I loved how it stayed puffed and crunchy to the last spoonful.
It wasn’t until after I finished the cereal that I was able to place the taste… CORN POPS!!! Yup, this was basically a less sweet version of Kellogg’s Corn Pops. It wasn’t the most satisfying or filling cereal either, so I’ll be curious to see how long it holds me over this morning. Overall, it’s a good cereal and worth a try, but I don’t think I’ll be buying it again.
I have a busy Tuesday ahead, and I am almost ready to head out the door to my Psychology Stats lab. Hope everyone has a fabulous day!!!
