Happy Sunday y’all! It’s been a pretty hectic couple of days, and now that all the craziness has somewhat subsided, I’m completely exhausted and in need of a nice, long nap. A good solid 9 hours of sleep is all I really want! Nonetheless, I’ve still got tons of chores and things to do around the house. Because I’ve been so busy, this banana nut smoothie bowl has really been a life saver for me in the mornings, and a great afternoon snack for when I get home from school. I love throwing all of my ingredients in my Ninja the night before, refrigerating it, and it’s all ready to blend and go. When I have the time, I’ll pour it into a bowl and make it fancy with nuts and bananas. It’s creamy, energizing, and super duper healthy!

Ever since I posted a picture on Instagram a while ago of my favorite oatmeal recipe, I’ve been eating it almost every day in the mornings. It’s super quick, healthy, and what’s not to love about apples and peanut butter? It’s one of my all-time favorite food combinations, and putting it into my morning oats is absolutely amazing. I was on Pinterest the other day, and I found this snickerdoodle baked oatmeal from The Seasoned Mom. The idea of baking oatmeal and having it for breakfast in little bars is genius. I honestly can’t believe I hadn’t thought of it before… it really never occurred to me to make oatmeal in baked form until now. Thank goodness for Pinterest!

I’ve been obsessing over blueberries lately. I’ve been having them as a snack almost every day this week! I love having something nice, fresh, and sweet in the fridge to look forward to when I get home from school. I usually pre-wash them a day in advance or in the morning if I have time, and they’re ready to go! Sometimes I’ll try and bring them to school but I’ll end up eating them all in the car.
Today, I decided to make some blueberry muffins! These are so cute and I’m drooling as I’m writing this post right now! I only have a couple more in the pantry, and I’m pretty sure they won’t last long. These cuties are fluffy, super easy to throw together, and full of delicious blueberry goodness!
(P.S. I’m also playing around with photoshop, so hopefully my pictures look okay! I’m still learning a lot but I feel like my image quality is getting a lot better.)

Lately, I’ve been getting ready faster in the morning so I’ll have time to make a nice breakfast for myself before I head off to school in the mornings. I’m really proud of myself for that because I used to not eat breakfast at all, and my stomach would growl during class! Embarrassing. Plus, I’d be super drowsy the entire day and almost inhale my food during lunchtime.
One of my new year’s resolutions is to eat breakfast, drink more water, and eat healthier in general. I’ve been having things like avocado toast, acai/smoothie bowls, breakfast burritos, and lots of fruit.
However, when the weekend rolls around, I’ll make something super fancy and savory – like this sweet potato hash! It’s packed with all sorts of deliciousness, like Italian sausage, onions, bell peppers, eggs, and the star of the show, sweet potato. It’s packed with all sorts of protein and nutritious vegetables, which is a perfect to start off your day!

Happy valentines day! Although I honestly don’t have any reason to celebrate the holiday whatsoever, I finally decided to do a post on it anyways. Actually, I love celebrating Valentine’s with chocolate, cards, food, and hanging out with my friends! View Full Post “Chocolate Raspberry Waffles!”
