Finals are in full swing! I had my Design Studies exam yesterday, and finished my 10-page essay for Intro to Asia that counts as our final exam last night. I have 3 more left – one on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday – and then I’m DONE with my Freshman year of college!!! It feels like such a relief to have the first two accomplished, and I’m sure I’ll make it through the other 3 just fine!
With all the craziness of finals, I haven’t been all too creative with eats, but I did manage to make some FABULOUS sweet potato rounds a couple night ago…
Organic sweet potato rounds topped with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger, with MaraNatha raw organic almond butter for dipping and a glass of unsweetened almond milk on the side.
I also recently tried out Living Harvest Hempmilk after Matt recommended it to me. Now, I will say right away that Matt told me to get unsweetened, but my Whole Foods doesn’t carry unsweetened so I just had to make do with the original.
Honestly? I wasn’t the biggest fan. I’m not big on any sweetened milk product in general, and this hempmilk just had an “off” taste to me that could have been the sweetening or could have just been the milk itself. That said, I’m always willing to try something new, and I’ve heard awesome things about hempmilk and its health benefits, so it’s totally worth a shot. And I’ll obviously have to give the unsweetened version a try once I can get my hands on it!
Today’s agenda consists of a lot of studying and classes… can’t wait until I’m done in one week!
