Well I did it folks, I finally made my way over to Trader Joes today. I figured out that the closest one is 1.2 miles away from campus so I decided to walk over between meetings and class. It was sad that I could only buy what I could carry back :( Plus I didn’t want to spend that much money either. I walked out $30 poorer with these items in hand -
The bananas were 19 cents each! I haven’t had any in a couple weeks and was craving them so I got the biggest yellowest bunch I could. I also snagged some almond butter, butternut squash soup, tomato soup, some protein powder, and unpictured container of Laughing Cow garlic and herb cheese wedges. Oh yeah I almost forgot the whole grain tortillas too. I put those items in the fridge already. I could probably go nuts in that store if I had an unlimited supply of money and people to carry my bags :)
Besides that I was also excited to start using my Chobani Champions lunchbox. I’m such a little kid sometimes.
Yesterday’s at school snacks: Multigrain Cheerios, Verry Berry CHOB, and grapes in the grape container. duh.
Now this was hard to stuff everything in. We’ve got tuna salad in the top middle with Wasa rye crackers next to it. Then the other little container is hummus for the veggies hiding in the red container underneath the strawberries and the Verry Berry.
And for breakfast I had my long lost love – oatmeal!
We had no fresh fruit at that time though so I succumbed to raisins. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
Oh and remember those Larabars I was so excited to receive? Well I tried the blueberry muffin today! It seemed a lot softer and squishier (bad choice of word?) than the other ones but the taste was delightful. Definitely a keeper in my books.
Looking back now at this post, I’m just like “Wow I’m all of the place” but hey maybe at least it’s a little interesting.
I’ll leave you with the best news ever. I’m finished with my internship applications! I just have to submit them now! I’m so so so happy but anxious now for the decision date – April 3rd. It’s going to be a long couple of weeks!
