Day 23: 30 Days of Unprocessed Food

 At last I am back to the daily grind of working towards a college degree. Isn't it funny that amidst the chaos of the semester I find myself whining and anxiously awaiting classes to be over, yet during my time off these past few weeks, I find myself getting restless and eager to be back on a schedule? The grass is always greener. Although I have been dreading the start of summer school these past few weeks, part of me is happy to be back into a routine. It feels good to wake up and have somewhere to be in the morning and to work towards something that means so much to me. I am three classes away from earning my Bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. It feels great to be nearing the finish line!

 Today was my first day of Microbiology and I loved it. This is my last lab science. Let me just recite to you all the science courses I have taken. It makes me feel smart, so humor me: Anatomy and Physiology I and II, General Chemistry I and II,  General Biology, Organic Chemistry, and last but not least... Biochemistry- hardest class of my life! I will be so happy when Microbiology is over. Yes it's true, I am a science nerd, but I am also getting burned out on lab reports and chemical formulas. I rushed out the door this morning to make sure I had plenty of time to find my class. As a result, I made a very quick and easy lunch for myself of 1/2 peanut butter sandwich, grapes, and almonds.  I was starving by the end of the day, because this lunch would barely satisfy a 90 year old sedentary woman!

After my husband picked me up from school, he insisted on getting a haircut,  (he really needed one) so he dropped Sophia and I off at Starbucks. I grabbed a tall iced coffee sweetened with honey for a little pick me up. Much to my surprise, we were able to find a fruit and nut bar that was raw and unprocessed to share as a small snack! I have never heard of this brand before, but after finding these bars, I am in love. All products are raw with no refined sugars or oils. What's not to love?! Check it out here.  Although this was supposed to be to share, Sophia ended up eating most of it ;)
