Here are my current obsessions:
1. Greek Yogurt. I decided I’m saving all my yogurt containers for storage. At the moment, I store all my coffee and sweeteners in them. I feel in a month-I’ll need something else to use them for. This is from the first month of school and doesn’t count all the individual containers I’ve bought hehe.
2. Pancakes-I don’t think I need to explain hehe.
3. Canned Pumpkin-How sad this is only half of my collection from my recent hoarding experience.
I could lie to the blogging community and say that I haven’t already used an entire can of canned pumpkin since my purchase yesterday-but too my credit I did make pumpkin pancakes for two.
I wasn’t sure I was going to do a food blog today because if you haven’t noticed-I’ve updated other things around the blog. Including a new article about swimming!
I swear last night all I could think about was making pumpcakes in the morning so when I woke up this morning (thanks to an elbow in the face) I was ecstatic! I literally jumped out of bed and into the kitchen. The pancakes are were just as I remembered and I put them in a bowl and topped with Chobani vanilla yogurt.

12:30pm-After a couple hours of studying, I went to the student union and got a (don’t judge me please) Pumpkin Spice coffee, some pears and apples.
2:00pm-It must have been a chobani yogurt bowl day. I made cinnamon pear and apple on top of yogurt. I had never made it with pears, but I didn’t know what I was missing. There is about 6 ounces of yogurt somewhere in there.
4:00pm-Yes, indeed. I finished off the can of pumpkin with a protein pumpkin smoothie. I didn’t take a picture because pumpkin shakes aren’t too eye-appealing. That is my general consensus with all my shakes that come out of my magic bullet. I’m going to buy a fancy cup like this to display them in.
Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Shake:
6 ounce Greek god yogurt
½ cup canned pumpkin
½ scoop whey protein powder
1 packet hot cocoa mix
It was a strange combination of ingredients that I was surprised went to together as well as they did.
6:00pm For dinner, Aram and I went to Lehman dining hall. Tonight was prime rib. They finally realized I was a hungry girl and gave me a large piece of Prime Rib. I don’t like the fat of prime rib, so there was obviously a lot I cut out. I also had fruit salad. The end of family weekend marks the end of my dining hall produces the best food possible ha. I had mangos and strawberry fruit salad.
Tonight I’m back to studying and of then morning practice tomorrow. Hopefully with my rest day, my body will recover from be reading for practice tomorrow.
What are your go to staple foods?
