abc cookies

As everyone knows, your brain cannot function without food, particularly without healthy food. When studying, your mind is on overload and it can be stressful. Studying can last from five minutes to six hours, but keeping your brain energized is key.

I have composed a list of some of my favorite snacks along with some others. All of these are vegan friendly but are great for anyone!

-tea (any calming tea is good, also tea that is used for headaches can help because i get headaches when i work for too long) (my favorite teas are mint, fruit teas, green tea with citrus, cinnamon/vanilla) im not sure exactly what they are called but my therapist always puts different kinds of powders in my tea that have antioxidants or vitamins and theyre like super foods. you can get tons of different ones and you cant really taste them but they can add some extra umph to your health.

-smoothies (one of my favorites)
•1/2 cup black berries
•1/2 cup raspberries
•4-8 strawberries
•two (preferably frozen) bananas
•handful of spinach
•ice

-apples with peanut/almond butter

-a fruit burrito (i accidentally made this when there was no food in the house and ive loved it ever since)
•whole wheat tortilla
•butter (i used vegan butter)
•fruits of choice (i use strawberries/bananas)
•cinnamon/sugar
~spread the butter on the tortilla and heat it up to your liking.
~cut the fruit
~put the fruit in the middle of the tortilla so it fits when you roll it up
~sprinkle cinnamon/sugar and roll it up and youre good to go!

-sweet potato chips

-plantain chips (they taste like fries if you get good ones)

-veggie sandwich (you can get this at subway or make it at home and modify it to your liking)
•bread of choice
•tomatoes
•cucumbers
•lettuce
•spinach
•(at home i add avocado or black beans)
•oil

-nice cream (basically a frozen smoothie haha)
•frozen fruit of choice
•bananas (mostly the base but not mandatory)
•anything you want to add in flavor wise such as mint extract, vanilla extract, or cacao powder
~literally just blend it and it should be fully blended but a thicker, cold consistency
~if it is not thick enough blend in some ice or freeze it to your desired texture

-blue corn chips

-granola (obviously)

-fruit (if youre lazy like me)

-spinach salad
•spinach
•toppings of choice (strawberries/pine nuts for me)
•balsamic vinaigrette

-peanut butter/avocado sandwich (its amazing i swear)
•peanut/almond butter
•avocado
•cinnamon
•whole grain bread
~mash up the avocado until it is a creamy consistency
~mix in cinnamon
~spread peanut butter on both slices of bread
~spread the avocado/cinnamon mix on one side and enjoy!

-juice (if you have your own juicer)
•spinach or kale
•apple juice
•blackberries
•raspberries
•blueberries
~make it to your liking but that is my favorite combination of fruits in juice

-Silk Very Vanilla or Chocolate soy milk cartons (little 8oz ones that come in a pack but fill you up if you are just a little hungry or in a hurry and have TONS of calcium and protein) (you can get almond ones too)

-pretzels & peanut butter

-oats/oatmeal with fruit and cinnamon

-quinoa dishes (you can do anything with quinoa/rice/couscous and they are very good for you and fill you up) i personally add vegetable oil with curry and peppers

-Outshine fruit popsicles. made with real fruit juice and are wayyy healthier than other frozen treats (lemon is my favorite)

-trail mix
•any dried fruits/nuts/toppings your little studying heart desires

-SMOOTHIE KING. IF YOURE LAZY GET SOME SMOOTHIE KING.

-ABC company cookies (you can get them at Whole Foods or Smoothie King, theyre huge cookies that are good for you and taste amazing)

AND OF COURSE JUST BECAUSE IM FEELING PARTICULARLY NICE TODAY, treat yourself to an oreo or two.

Those are just some things I love eating and are somewhat healthy. Some of them require cooking, but others you can just pull out of the fridge! Happy studying! Blessed be! xx.

Orihime! :3 (That is for this five headcanons thing)

Send in a character and I’ll tell you my 5 favourite headcanons

Hope you like these anon! Just as a heads up, the last two headcanons will involve what happened later in the canon timeline, so if you’re not a fan of what went down in the last few chapters, you may not want to read these:

  • Right after Ichigo lost his power and thus the ability to see Rukia, when everyone eventually went back inside, she lingered and stayed with Rukia to comfort her before she went back to the Soul Society.
  • Not long after getting her job at ‘ABC Cookie’, Orihime made it habit to take as many left over baked goods as she could and give them to her friends. This is something she continued to do through the years, particularly when one of her friends were so busy with their studies or work (like when Ichigo and Uryu were practically buried in textbooks trying to study for their university exams, she’d always bring them over various pastries and breads to snack on).
  • She eventually told Tatsuki everything that happened to her in Hueco Mundo over one afternoon at her residence. It was hard for both of them to talk about, but it also brought them a lot closer together as a result.
  • By the ten year timeskip, she is either the manager or the co-manager of the ‘ABC Cookies’.She has thought about going back to study, though she isn’t sure which profession she wants to pursue.
  • When she moved in with Ichigo, she put her brother’s picture next to Masaki’s, so they both share a home shrine. Sometimes after paying their respects Kazui asks about his uncle, and Orihime will tell him small stories about her childhood with him. When her son gets older, she tells him about the sadder memories and how her life began; as a result, Kazui holds his uncle in an even higher regard then he did before.

Did you know half of the Girl Scout Cookies Manufactured are Vegan, it just depends what your local GS council decides to sell through, ABC COOKIES or LITTLE BROWNIE. Little Brownie makes ZERO VEGAN GS COOKIES.. and unfortunately for my local vegan friends is what is sold around the NW, but ABC COOKIES (the original maker of girl scout cookies dating back to the early 1930s!) makes 5 VEGAN KINDS! and are sold mainly on the east coast, but some across california! I got mine mailed to me from NYC, and I of course ordered one of each kind, and then some :) 

Much as I want tons of people to watch Forever, I’m kind of glad I watch it by myself. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be able to coo “Oh, Henry, baaaaaabyyyyyy ;_;” out loud without getting weird looks and/or awkward questions from my family. Um.
