healthier treat

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

-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)
~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
•(at home i add avocado or black beans)

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

-peanut butter/avocado sandwich (its amazing i swear)
•peanut/almond butter
•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
~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


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


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.

why don’t people understand the point of fanon/fanfiction is to play with canon and, if it’s our wish, use it to fix canon/turn canon into something healthier

I know Gaston treats LeFou like shit in the last third of the movie. and I hate that he does. thAT’S WHY I WRITE FANFICTION FFS.

please quit the ‘if you ship it it means you like every canon aspect of it’ mentality oh my god

Three Years at the Java Stop

Characters: Dean x Reader, Sam

Word Count: 2220

Warnings: Fluff and baked goods. (Don’t read while hungry)

Summary: Sam makes Dean stop in a roadside coffee shop where the menu and the owner keep Dean coming back.

Author’s Note: Huge thanks to @whatdoyouthinkmyjobis for all of her edits and helpful suggestions.

You wrapped up a single slice of your signature pie and stashed it and an entire pie just like it in the back office. You took a minute to write on the pie box. “Can I get a Date Night?”

Just over three years into running the Java Stop, things were going great. It turns out truck drivers, business travelers and vacationers alike all wanted a good cup of coffee and a little atmosphere along the road. You got to know your regulars and loved making coffee and treats for them. You had become known for your ability to guess what a customer wanted even if they didn’t know themselves.

Your favorite regular had come to you just a few weeks after opening. You’d never forget the day he reluctantly stopped in with his brother.

“Stop grumbling,” The taller of the two men said as they approached your counter.

“We’re buying four dollar coffee now?” asked the other, who was pouting. He had a perfect pout, perfectly kissable.

Okay so I'm kinda on the fence about T. When I first came out I was super keen and really wanting to start. Then I didn't want to go on t. Now idk I'm thinking about it but I really don't know. Do you have like a pros cons tag or something?

Jay says:

Some stuff could be considered a pro for some and a con for others, so I’ll just list all the possible effects of T and you can decide for yourself (And I’ll do a pro and con list of how I feel abt T)

Effects of T include:

  • Increased body hair (arms, legs, chest, facial hair, etc)
  • Deepening of the voice
  • Increased body musculature (easier to build muscle when working out)
  • Clitoral growth (clit grows into a small “T-dick”, ranging from less than an inch to two or three inches)
  • Periods stop
  • Possible loss of hair in a male pattern, male pattern baldness
  • Body fat redistribution (from ass and thighs and chest to stomach)
  • Oilier skin
  • Higher red blood cell count
  • Body odour and urine odour change
  • Possible change in cholesterol levels
  • Rougher look and feel to skin
  • Increase in sex drive
  • More angular face, squarer jaw
  • Possible increase in hand / foot size
  • Increase in energy level
  • Increase in appetite
  • SLIGHT decrease in chest size (from body fat redistribution)
  • Emotional change (some may be irritable, some may be calm, some may be angry, some may be happy, a different stages in their cycle if they get shots.)

For me, the pros and cons would be like this


  • Increased body hair
  • Deepening of the voice
  • Increased body musculature
  • Clitoral growth 
  • Periods stop
  • Body fat redistribution
  • Body odour and urine odour change
  • Increase in sex drive
  • More angular face, squarer jaw
  • Possible increase in hand / foot size
  • Increase in energy level
  • SLIGHT decrease in chest size (
  • Emotional change - I’ve become calmer


  • Possible hair loss
  • Body fat redistribution (will make me look chubbier due to relocation to stomach)
  • Increase in appetite (I’m always hungry already)
  • Oilier skin - I dont like spots
  • Rougher skin - I like being smooth
  • Red blood cell count - could be potentially negative if it went high enough
  • Cholesterol - as above

So for me, those cons are small enough that I can deal with them. Cholesterol, red blood cells, appetite and body fat issues will be dealt with if I lose weight and become healthier, I can treat oily skin and spots, and hair loss happens to everyone. So my con list just disappeared!

Rabbit Looking for a Good Home

Hey all. My dad and I have come down to the decision that we need to find a good home for our rabbit - Coconut. What it comes down to is that… he really shouldn’t be in our home. No one has the attention, time, or rabbit knowledge to take care of him the way that he deserves. My mom works full time + lots of overtime, I work a full time and a part time, my brother lives away at college (and when he is home he never takes care of him), so it’s always my dad that needs to take care of him and he has nowhere near enough time to take care of him the way he needs.

(Here’s the lil guy. As you can see he doesn’t get out of his cage much. >: This was one of the few times that I had a day off and my mom and I brought him upstairs.)

My mom wants to keep him, but she doesn’t really take care of him so dad and I are just taking the proactive approach to find him a good home. 

So if you are in the “Valley” area of Connecticut or live in the Northeast and are willing to drive and are interested in taking in Coconut, please feel free to contact me to talk. 

I definitely want someone who has experience with caring for rabbits. The last thing I want is for him to go to another home where he isn’t cared for properly. I’m sure we’d have no probably giving you any supplies (food,cages,etc) that we already have as well.

Things to know about Coconut

  • He doesn’t like sugary treats like yogurt-flavored ones, but he’s all about the “healthier” treats (dried carrot stuff,etc).
  • He’s good with small dogs - when we were on vacation my mom’s friend watched him and they would cuddle.
  • Honestly, that’s about it. >: This really isn’t the best home for him if I can’t tell you much about him.

I’m also going to break it gently to mom (cause we know she’s going to be against getting rid of him, but hopefully it will be easier with the two of us), and ask her if she can talk to her friend who is a HUGE animal lover (the one who babysat him) about taking him in. 

tl;dr I never ask any of my followers to reblog anything for me, but I’m begging you to please reblog and spread the word for this. I really want to find a good home for Coconut.

Fat shaming is horrible. Body shaming is horrible in general. It's a hard balance in between trying to be sensitive and honest with patients who are overweight/obese though. Could you suggest tips on how to approach that from professional/personal experience?

Personally when I’m talking to my own patients about weight, I commiserate with them. I know how hard it is to stay committed to weight loss, and I haven’t been hugely successful with it myself. And Lord knows I’ve been shamed by my own providers and colleagues enough to make me sensitive to this issue. 

If my patients are not motivated to lose weight per se, I try to focus more on improving health and preventing future problems rather than number of pounds on a scale, since this is the ultimate goal anyway. We focus on exercising to improve blood sugars (and improving insulin insensitivity) or improving sleep apnea, or to take pressure off of arthritic joints. I focus on dietary changes to improve lipids or hypertension or GERD or diabetes which will indirectly impact weight.
