Waiting for Tomorrow

One more day until the rest of my life. Well maybe I’m being dramatic but still, tomorrow is Match Day in the dietetic world. It’s when all the students who applied for dietetic internships finds out if they have been matched.  Sadly, the match rate is only about 50% so there are going to be a lot of sad people at 6:01 (central time) tomorrow night.  For those that don’t know, a dietetic internship is required before taking the national exam to become a Registered Dietitian. It’s a big deal.  I feel like Match Day came fast and slow at the same time, isn’t that weird? So if I disappear from the world for a while, you know what happened :/

Anyway……My jar of Teddie p.b. is getting to the end (which mean OIAJ time!) but also means its to the point where its not exactly creamy anymore lol.

Example A: Oats with banana, strawberries, and p.b.


Example B: Oats with strawberries, blackberries, and p.b.


See how chunky it looks? But it’s okay, I don’t mind.

I also experimented with making tofu for the first time last night! I marinated it in soy sauce, vinegar, honey, and ginger but I think I added a little too much soy sauce considering how thin I sliced it because it was a bit too salty. I was still pleasantly surprised with how well it turned out!


It paired perfectly with the brown rice and steamed broc. Yum Yum! And today I used the leftovers with my salad.


Oh and I made beets with cabbage the other day using what I had gotten in my Boston Organics delivery last week. The cabbage soaked up all the red from the beets of course. Huge salad = perfect lunch!

Question: What’s your opinion on tofu? Love it/Hate it/Just okay?

Have a great weekend! Wish me luck for tomorrow :)


  1. Your oatmeal may be chunky but it looks amazing. I want to eat those berries right off my screen, they're gorgeous!

  2. AAAAH i'm so excited for you! i'll be praying for you!!! last year on match day, i remember my sister and i counting down the last hour together. and then before i even clicked into the site, i started sobbing -- it was just so much stress and everything built into that one moment! and then i clicked and i was so happy to see the match :)
    best of luck!!!!!
    oh, and btw, love tofu!

  3. oh also, i've heard stories about the site shutting people out in the past b/c so many ppl trying to log in at once (like girls who didn't find out until the next morning even!), so i logged in with my password before and then just didn't click on the "match" page until the proper time. hope this helps!

  4. what happens if you don't get one do you reapply the next year?

  5. Thank you Meredith! I will make sure log in early :)
    And yes Anna(Banana!) you can reapply next year, just seems a little depressing to me.

  6. eeek - good luck about match day! I totally know the feeling when something seems like it's dragged by and yet flown by at the same time!

  7. I"M DYING... WHERE DID YOU GET IN!?!??!?!

  8. Good luck with the matching! I have a couple friends who were dietetics students so I understand the anxiety of waiting the match results!

  9. Good luck with your matching!! Please keep us updated, and I want your oats nowww ;D
