The most simple pumpkin recipe of them all! Actually-all my recipes are relatively simple so here we go. I borrowed this recipe from Jamie and I’m not looking back because it’s delicious.
1 package of pudding (I just had pistachio and banana cream on hand-so I went with banana)
1 cup pumpkin pure
1 scoop protein powder (I’ll add it to all my pudding creations)
1 and ¼ cup milk
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
It made two about 1 cup servings. (4-1/2 cup servings but I’m a hungry girl).
Mix all ingredients together and whisk whisk whisk. Let sit in the fridge for about 15 minutes to set and wala. It makes a great dessert or Preworkout/post workout snack yumm.

Anywho-I thought to just include this into today’s blog rather than featuring a new recipe and all that jazz and adding more to your subscription feed.
Today began when I woke up at 9am. This weekend, I have spent just recovering my body. I have been so tired so this is a nice change for me. Anywho let me begin my rant. Let me tell you, Aram and I decided to go to the dining hall this morning and I realized why I have only been there one time for brunch. It was awful. They made crepes (as pictured) but it wasn’t good. I ended up having lucky charms and an apple and some powdered eggs (but I like those). I didn’t eat but one bite of the crepe…depressing.
I wish I had just had chocolate oatmeal from yesterday.
After my not-so-wonderful dining hall experience I came back and painted my nails and worked on Halloween costume. Sounds like the key to being a successful college student eh?
Then I copied some more modern notes into my big math notebook. I find copying the notes into a new notebook helps me really learn the material better and guess what? I have a big test in that class tomorrow yuck.
Then it was time.
Time to conquer the beast.
In the pouring rain, I walked to the gym (which I had not been in about a month) and got onto the treadmill. I’m not a fan of treadmill running at all. My mind wanders, I get bored easily and have a terrible time finishing my runs. How is it I can stare a black line swimming for two hours but can’t run while watching tv?
I’m not going to lie-the first 30 minutes was hell. There was nothing on TV, there was no one to creep on in the gym or to amuse me, God I didn’t even know anyone in there at the time to distract me. Then at about mile 4, I just relaxed and finished my nine miles. It will need some getting used too but it is better than running in the rain and cold. I also can get some core work done while I’m there-so that will be a plus.
Upon arriving back at my townhouse, I cooked up some more chocolate oatmeal. This time I added peanut flour and pumpkin. I think I like the protein in better (just because the vanilla makes it a tad more sweet).
Then insert some fooling around pretending to do some homework.
Aram really wanted to go to Mongolian buffet tonight. I have been wanting to make Pumpkin Gnocchi the last two nights but we will tomorrow we will. I’m not taking no for an answer! I love the Mongolian Buffet (it’s Chinese buffet but has sushi! Good sushi too-not normally yucky buffet sushi) but the waitresses and waiters are so pushy. They don’t even try to hide they just want you to come, eat and leave.
Today all I had were my two favorite items there. The sushi and the Long Yan Fruit. Holy Moly,-incase you missed my blog about my obsession of Long Yan back in August, they are my favorite fruit. I can only ever find them at Chinese Buffets though-so if you know where I can find some please tell me. I also had a lot of kiwis. Another great fruit that I haven’t had for a while. I somehow avoided the fried food and even the ice-cream tonight. Could be because its 40 degrees and raining…
After that Aram and I went to Walgreens next door and I got a pumpkin headband to complete my Halloween costume.
