desire chip

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.

The signs and their weird vibes ~( º _ º~ )

Aries ~ talking to an Aries you might get the feeling that they understand you, or at least desperately want to, on a slightly more than subtle level. It’s weird because it’s slightly overbearing (although flattering). Spend more time with them and their need for companionship and entertainment will drag you into some crazy and fun situations though. You’ll find that being around them is like being around a campfire – their emotions are vivid and searingly hot, but the warmth and sustenance of their aura is strangely addictive and keeps possibility alive.

Taurus ~ spending time with a Taurus you might feel a strange air of stagnation, and might get the feeling that they are comfortable with the way things are or the way they think things should be. Stale air is one thing, but a Taurus will count the dust motes with you through half-lidded eyes, and you’ll feel an undercurrent of strength that may have gone unnoticed. It’s a kind of fortitude that comes from steadfast willpower and a subtle dominance over a room. You might find yourself agreeing with them for instance, without knowing why, or else getting irritated that others have been swayed by their subtle prowess.

Gemini ~ around a Gem you might get a slight feeling that they’re incredibly introspective. It’s something about the way they make constant eye contact or maybe that they can hold a conversation with just about anyone but you can’t help but feel that you’re looking at someone who might as well be alone. Like a single wanderer in a vast desertscape who is deliriously talking to a sun-bleached skull, or someone’s reflection refracted in a dozen mirrors and when they look at you they see a part of themselves – and for once you’d wish they wouldn’t agree with you so vehemently but trust me, if they disagree with you you’re in for the longest debate of your life.

Cancer ~ their empathy and sense of responsibility sometimes crystallises into a steadfast veneer that can confuse the people around them. But briefly study a Cancer and you might get the sense of a complex, overwhelming depth of character. Their flaws and dents, if numerous, might give indication of something intense and primal, as though they’re hiding their claws until they can finally let loose in a short, hot burst of emotion. You’re not sure you want to be around when they do.

Leo ~ a Leo will almost instantly impart on you the impression of watching a child, grinning mischievously, impatiently waiting for you to come play. No matter how many layers they bury their inner self under, its presence is undeniable, like sunbeams breaking through their butt dark canopy. You’ll most likely sense genuine warmth coupled with a bit of benign self-interest. You may catch them unabashedly glancing at their reflection or steering the conversation towards themselves but hey, maybe everyone’s dying to do that and they’re just honest, and your gut tells you that you can expect them to be just as straight with you.

Virgo ~ the weirdest vibe you might get from a Virgo isn’t necessarily cold like an Aquarius or removed like a Capricorn, but you may feel that being near them is somehow akin to touching stone, and underneath that is the unquenchable heat of ambition. Whatever their social presence, and no matter how chill or friendly they are, you can’t help but notice that they are unnervingly aware, and you suspect that their true feelings might be more extreme than you realised. Like a statue their eyes feel like they follow you but you never quite seem to catch them out.

Libra ~ polite, charming, even quiet, the Libra’s strangest vibes may be overlooked. When you disagree with them they may let it slide, or someone might say something offensive and the Libra won’t even glance their way. But the hairs on the back of your neck might start to pick up, maybe you start getting a pit of anxiety in your stomach – and you don’t know why. Then you look at the Libra and maybe notice they’re pressing their pen onto the paper just a little too hard, or their eyes are slightly too wide and their smile is a little too sharp. That is because they are capable of emitting a violent, and seething hatred that rolls off of them in waves. Their way may be compromise, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have opinions and expectations. Look deep into their eyes, and you might catch a glimpses of the eternal hellfire that rages inside them.

Scorpio ~ you may immediately catch on to the fact that this person is sharp-witted and individualistic – they’re doin just fine on their own, thanks. But as sharp and glossy as their exterior may be, you may sense a deep swell of positive energy and camaraderie within them, and it flows from a place where empathy and passion for the people they care about reign free. However mysterious their inner process may be, you feel simultaneously safe and intrigued around them – you never know what they’ll do next but you do know that they’ll fiercely defend you, and their stamina is as boundless as their loyalty.

Sagittarius ~ you may get the feeling that a Sagittarius is passionate and, above all else, present in the moment. What is strange then, is the sense that, sometimes, there is also a vacancy of spirit. Were their eyes too hollow when they said that - but it was so convincing? How odd, you might think, that someone so profoundly alive might actually be undecided and in a state of flux within. How can someone throw themselves into something and not really believe in it? What is the truth? These are questions you might end up asking yourself, especially if you’re a cooler-tempered sign. If they could just stop for a moment, you’re dying to know the answers, but like a whirlwind they’re off, leaving you mystified.

Capricorn ~ sometimes possessing a quick intelligence their communication skills can’t cope with, a Capricorn might start on the wrong foot with you or be preoccupied with something else. But if you trust your gut you may feel an irrepressible desire to chip away at their walls bit by bit to get to the molten core within. They struggle against what they believe is wrong and you feel it comes from a place of unique clarity. Perhaps inside is a spark of what makes the human spirit wonderful: the will required to change the world no matter how much effort and hard work it takes. Invigorated by their presence, you may feel inspired enough to reassess your own struggles.

Aquarius ~ let’s be straight, the vibe you get off an Aquarius is like staring into the face of ungodly chaos itself. You won’t know how or why you feel this way – they won’t do anything to tip you off and they may seem completely polite and friendly. Get to know them however, and you’ll see that underneath there is a thundering storm of undiluted weird that is both overwhelming and inescapable. When you first meet one you won’t know if they’re a suave intellectual or a spacey loser. Maybe both? Either way you might just like being in the serene eye of the storm.

Pisces ~ one of the weirdest things you might pick up off a Pisces is, contrary to popular belief, independence. They are connected, at least emotionally, to people around them and they may seem intellectual or artsy to you, but you may feel as though they have a bit of an every-man-for-himself thing going on. They might try to conceal it but it slips out: perhaps the tone with which they disagree, as gentle as it may be, suggests they will never in a million years change their mind, or maybe they keep the results of their maths homework to themselves. But whatever it is you still feel that they appreciate you, from a distance, until it’s safe to let themselves feel more deeply.

Someone please just let these Marvel fans plug their headphones into a Doritos bag
Marvel has partnered with Doritos to make a limited edition Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2-branded bag of chips, complete with a makeshift tape deck playing the film’s soundtrack. Doritos never announced a specific time when they would be made available for purchase, but the afternoon has dragged on and on with no sign of the world’s most desirable corn chips, and now fans who have been waiting for hours are getting worried.

WATERMELON MARGARITA JELLO SHOTS

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh watermelon cubed
  • 1/4 cup frozen limeade concentrate thawed and strained to remove solids
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 cup silver tequila
  • 2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 6 medium limes

Preparation:

  1. If you have soft limes, you can cut them in half and then flip them inside out. This will make removing the pulp easy. If the lime is too hard for that then you will need to take a paring knife around the edges of the halves to loosen the pulp from the rind.
  2. In food processor or blender, puree the watermelon until smooth.
  3. Strain through a fine mesh sieve placed over the bowl. To get all the juice, use the back of a spoon to press on the pulp to extract. The pureed watermelon should yield about 1 cup of watermelon juice. Set aside.
  4. Pour water and limeade concentrate into a small saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin. Allow to soak for a minute or two.
  5. Heat over low heat until gelatin is fully dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in 1 cup of watermelon juice, the Grand Marnier and tequila.
  7. Pour mixture into lime halves, filling all the way to the top.
  8. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  9. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut each lime half in half again, making wedges.
  10. Stick in chocolate chips, if desired to create watermelon seeds.

BEHOLD! The rest of the Pines family’s cat designs! You all asked for it! Hope it meets your desires!

sick

bestfriend!luke imagine

635 words

“oh my god (y/n) are you dying?” the sound of chips and dvds falling to the ground awoke you from your well deserved nap. you were mad at first but once you saw the desirable chips on the floor of your room, your mouth began to water. you hadn’t eaten anything in awhile because your stomach just threw up everything it disliked.

you rubbed your eyes to get a better look at the boy in your doorway, “no luke, i’m just sick. i think we have to cancel our movie night.” you almost whined just thinking about kicking out your best friend and the fallen food but you wouldn’t dare get him sick.

he scoffed when you started to drift off once more, sinking deeper into your mattress.

“no, i won’t allow it. i just got back from tour and we haven’t hung out in 6 months, 24 days, 5 hours, and 12..13..14 seconds. i don’t care if i get the sniffles,” he protested. he scooped up the chips and movies in one fluid motion and threw them on top of you. you cursed as your head began to ring in pain. to make it worse, luke decided to hop onto the bed right next to you. you could feel last night’s dinner crawl its way up your throat; you tried your best to keep it down. luke would’ve fainted if he saw your vomit.

“luke it’s not just the sniffles. i think i have the flu,” you pouted whilst blowing your nose into the nearest tissue. you thought luke would jump at the sight of germs but he stayed put, deciding what movie to watch first.

“i think i want to watch mulan, she’s pretty badass. and shang is hot. ooh but so is hercules. what a god, amirite?” he started flipping through the movie booklets and you covered your face with the thick comforter.

“you’re going to get sick, i’m warning you! i think i have the strength to vomit at command!” you threatened him through the blanket.

he hummed, “you’re right, i do look like hercules. we should watch it, i’ll let you sing along this time. you can be meg.” he walked to the dvd player and popped in the movie. “subtitles or no subtitles?”

“luke!” you exclaimed, pulling down the blanket to reveal your angry face.

“no subtitles. reading is too much work, and you’re already sick so…” luke made his way back to your bed and took himself underneath the blanket. he nudged your feet together and smiled cheekily.

“we’ll save the chips for later, you don’t look so good. cuddles?” he suggested.

“that’s exactly what i’m trying to say! i’m sick and i’d hate for you to be sick too during your break. you deserve to be healthy and happy after all of that touring you did.” you propped your head to look at him, hoping he’d understand.

“i’ll be happy either way, sick or not, as long as i’m with you. you make me happy, (y/n), you’re my best friend. i want to spend my time with you, okay? now shut up and don’t tell me how to live my life.” he returned his focus to the tv, mouthing the lyrics to the disney song, and you wondered how you got so lucky.

“okay, but-” you started.

luke jolted upwards and wrapped his spindly limbs on top of you. his whole body was latched onto you like a sloth practically suffocating you. “shhhhhh…no talking..nooo shhhhh”

he remained this position throughout all two hours of the movie and the next three, randomly stroking your face when you’d whine.

and the next day you woke up with a content smile on your face, chip crumbs on your bed, and a call from luke saying “(y/n) i think im sickkkkkkkkk.

anonymous asked:

I saw a brownie pancake? Is that for real?

Apparently so!

I made some chocolate pancakes this morning that tasted like a brownie:

-1/3 heaping cup rolled oats (ground up in a blender/food processor)

-¼ cup unsweetened applesauce

-2 whole eggs (or 3 egg whites)

-2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

-½ teaspoon baking powder

-1 scoop chocolate protein powder

-splash of unsweetened almond milk (vanilla or plain, I used plain with a dash of vanilla extract)

-optional: a teaspoon or two of stevia, cinnamon, chocolate/peanut butter chips

Mix all of the dry ingredients together and then added the wet ingredients and mix. Add chocolate chips/peanut butter chips, if desired. Heat on a griddle over medium heat. Makes 4 medium sized pancakes. I topped mine with peanut butter!
