Vegetarian Egg-Fried Rice

Posted on Updated on

Hi friends! So I’ve been semi-busy with life but found peace yesterday making homemade egg fried rice. It’s super easy (if a busy college kid can make it, you certainly can!)

 

Here’s what I did:

-boiled basmati rice (1 cup) in water

-in a heated saucepan, added 1 tablespoon of butter and one cup of frozen veggie mix (my favorite includes: green beans, lima beans, corn, peas, and carrots)

-after veggie mix softens (about 4 minutes later), pushed the veggie mix to the side of the frying pan and lowered the heat on the stovetop

-mixed four eggs with almond milk (still trying not to eat too much dairy!) and scrambled the eggs on the empty side of the frying pan

-about now, the rice is finished and I drained the water and added the cooked rice to the saucepan with the scrambled eggs and veggie mix

-mixed in soy sauce and continued to stir the now rice/veggie/egg mixture

Talk about a meal prep Monday! The finished rice made my instagram and can be found: HEREย 

Gluten-free No Mo

Posted on Updated on

Hi friends!!

So from my last update I was trying a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. It didn’t work so well. I am proudly a four-time Whole30 veteran and yet my body didn’t like the lack of gluten and dairy. Read the rest of this entry »

Bring it on, 2017!

Man, what a time to be alive!! This year (aka for the last month) I’ve paid more attention to myself and put myselfย first and it’s made my life SO MUCH better. Basically,ย 2017 is my bitch and I’ve been super proactive about eating right, getting stuff done and working out. This also included lots of buffalo chicken for lunch and dinner, lifting and running again and a lot of broccoli. Weirdly though, I don’t think I’ve combined buffalo chicken and broccoli yet, but I’ve been eating a ton of both. In fact, as I’m typing this I’m eating buffalo chicken right now ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel awesome about my classes this semester, Senior Class Gift, and I finally have a real, college-kid social life (peace out, NCAA!) Here’s a quick debrief: I’m in four classes (12 credits), but 3 credits are Abnormal Psychology which I’m taking pass/fail and the other 9 are three introduction business (Global Strategic Management, Organizational Behavior, and Developing Business Intelligence). Rest assured, they all sound way more complicated than they actually are.

Senior Class Gift is also kicking major butt!! We’re at 42% participation which is awesome because the biggest events of the year are yet to come! More updates to come! Next week is another Annual Giving Board meeting and I hope my successes help show that undergraduate giving at my school is on the rise.

I’m going to make the time to blog more this semester and am planning on eating gluten-free and dairy-free, so recipes and pictures will definitely be posted!
