meal one

Let’s get fit! 22/2

All I’ve been eating lately is Chia puddings or Overnight oats, which I love way too much to get sick of, but I need to change things up and build a better repertoire of meals. So I searched the world of Pinterest to find high protein vegan meal ideas. This one was a great find, Chocolate black bean Smoothie. I never thought to put beans in a smoothie but it’s a great idea and 😋😋😋

My daughter and I agree that food always tastes better out of superhero dinnerware.

The last time my mum was here, when I was preparing for surgery, we proved we are blood by her eating every meal out of this one corningware pan I have, and me eating everything out of a spider-man bowl. 

Being fair, I got two spider-man bowls at Walgreens eight years ago and they have been the most durable damn plastic bowls, and the print on them hasn’t faded or washed off. They’re great.

do u need a halp

Actually unrelatedly I was going to ask you if you still have the chords you used for Meg Boudoun’s Star Spangled Man, because that song just straight up has no tabs anywhere on the internet (there’s a play-along video for guitar but it’s awful). 

I think in the case of the particular song I was yelling about, it may just be that it’s not suited to ukulele play.

The Chicago historical society has some that looks like an asteroid, but it’s just the remains of a hardware store after the great fire.

I wonder if that’s where the “the fire was maybe caused by a meteorite hitting the barn” idea came from? :D

Hi, so yesterday I ate a lot of food with nuts in it, which I rarely do, and I feel -and look- like I've just gained a ton of weight, and I'd just started seeing real progress in toning my body. So I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do, like drink a lot of water, to like "go back", or do I have to start over in losing this fat again..? I did have a week or two of not eating enough up to yesterday so that might be why it shows btw but... it's annoying. Thanks!  

Its not healthy to try to correct for one bad meal, what is healthy is educating yourself on a lifetime of good meals.  Keep following the guidelines and increasing your ability to cook, eat out healthy & get ready for our next video that shows the power of empowerment.  

I Trained Crows To Bring Me Quarters

By reddit user LeoDuhVinci

In college, I struggled to make ends meet.  Most of my meals consisted nearly entirely of ramen noodles, garnished with a scrambled egg if my finances were stronger than usual, combined with the weekly splurge of a candy bar and soda each Friday.  I worked a part time job, but city rent was expensive, my classes were too tough to work more than twenty hours a week, and my parents had cut me off the year before.

A King’s Tale is a really great, super adorable mini-game where Regis tells Noctis a bedtime story. 

… Which means it’s filled with rather adorable father and son bonding and I think that’s great  💖 👍

Death Row prisoners get one last meal before getting sent to their execution; I.e., a fine pasta dish, steak and lobster, and so on. Your last meal is going to help you escape your sentence.

If you’re overweight and you’re eating healthy food, people will not take you seriously (because they expect that eating healthy food means you should have the perfect “fitness” body already, and if you don’t have it yet, clearly you haven’t succeeded or some shit).

If you’re skinny and eating healthy, people will be “concerned” for you because you need to gain weight.

If you’re overweight and you have a treat (that you counted in your macros and calories) or even a cheat meal that you’re aware of, they’ll ask if you’re sure you should be eating that… because won’t one meal hinder your weight loss? (and if you previously felt good about eating it because you know life is about balance, you begin to feel skeptical).

If you’re skinny and you work out, they will tell you that you don’t need to… because exercise is only for weight loss, apparently, and not strength.

If you’re overweight and you work out, people will not take you seriously (see first point) and they will always try to correct you because they will assume you don’t know what you’re doing.

tldr; people don’t know your goals, they don’t know your progress and they don’t know your body. You will be judged whether you choose to go for that salad or if treat yourself and go with the fries. You will be judged whether you’ve just started your weight loss journey or are ¾ of the way there. You will be judged whether you want to lose weight or if you’re happy with the way you are. trust your body and your goals, and do it for yourself x



Celebrating Pi Day with Food Stylist and Home Baker Quelcy Kogel

To see more of Quelcy’s adventures in the kitchen, follow @withthegrains on Instagram.

Pittsburgh food stylist Quelcy Kogel (@withthegrains) has an insatiable sweet tooth and passion for fresh food. “I remember visiting my grandparents on their farm and my grandmother was always in the kitchen preparing. One meal would be finished, and she’d be planning the next one — making everything from scratch.” In college, Quelcy started paying attention to what she was eating, and that led her to studying seasonality and proper baking techniques.

Today, we’re celebrating #PiDay with Quelcy — who took on quite the project a few years back to celebrate. “I made little pies from all local ingredients and then delivered them to homes that had ‘314’ addresses,” she says of her creative concept. This year, she’s keeping it simple with one delicious apple pie.

got a request to post this as a text post so here is my #GotYourBack ficlet again!

Dex winces when he sees the waitress again, trying not to notice her pitying smile when she refills his water for what must be the third time tonight, looking pointedly over at the empty seat across from him. He’s not exactly upset, it’s not like he was in love with Sarah or anything, he just feels awkward. He’s been fiddling with his phone for the past twenty minutes, but there’s nothing new on his timeline, so he decides to text in the SMH group chat.

serious q: if i got stood up am i supposed to just leave or do i just like order a meal to go…

No one answers, which is kind of annoying, but he figures they’re all just busy or something. He decides he’ll just go and leave a good tip when the waitress comes back.

“Hey, I’m actually - ” He’s interrupted before he can finish by the door to the restaurant slamming open.

“Babe!” He hears from across the room. Dex startles and looks up to find Nursey barreling towards them. “Sorry I’m late, my car broke down and my phone’s dead,” he exclaims loudly, dropping a kiss to Dex’s cheek and sitting down across from him.

“Oh, I’ll give you two a minute to check out the menu,” the waitress smiles, sounding relieved.

“What the hell are you - “ Dex starts to ask, but he’s interrupted yet again.

“Dex! Thank goodness you’re still here!” Chowder yells, practically sprinting towards them. “I was stuck in - oh, hey, Nursey.”

“Hey, bro,” Nursey grins, reaching out to fist-bump Chowder. Dex cannot believe his life. Chowder’s pulling up another chair to their table when the door opens again, and Dex groans because this time it’s Ransom and Holster both.

“William J. Poindexter!” Holster shouts.

“Bro, wait, Nursey and Chowder are here,” Ransom says, poking Holster’s side. They’re still walking over when Bitty bursts through the door.

“Dex - oh,” he laughs a little to himself, looking at everyone gathered around the small two-person table.

The waitress looks more than a little flustered when she comes back.

“I think we’re going to need a table that’s a little bit bigger,” Nursey drawls, smiling sweetly at her.

“Um, yeah, of course,” she nods, “Let me just go find a hostess.”

Dex can’t help but laugh at all of them dropping everything just to come in place of his date. They’re ridiculous. He loves them all.

“Thanks, guys,” he says.

“We got your back,” Bitty shrugs, ruffling his hair. They all jump when the door slams open again, and Dex almost falls off his chair laughing.

“Sorry we’re late!” Tango yells, tugging Whiskey behind him towards the table.
