So due to the responses to the poll I have decided to occasionally write about fitness and working out, try to include more vegetarian and vegan recipes, and perhaps divulge a bit more fun, personal information. There was also 1 request for me to divulge a recipe for “cooked outer labia.” I am afraid that I happen to be non-cannibarian, so I will not be cooking up any vag. Sorry.
I wish I had some exciting news, but I will have my face in a book until my finals are over, which will be next Thursday. Ochem and Physics are Monday, so Ill basically be checked out after that ;). I also just want to put a word out to the families who lost a loved one due to the Gaza aid flotilla raid. When a loved one goes off to war, the risk is obvious and acknowledged, at least internally. But when someone decides to get into humanitarian aid, the risk of death seems more distant. This affect is probably even more true for family members. 😦

Merp. Well, I know I have said this before but, this was the best bowl of oats I have ever had.
Recipe: Serves 1
In a tall bowl, combine 1/2 cup oats, a little under 3/4 cup milk, and 1/4 cup water. Add 1 tsp heavy whipping cream. Microwave for 2 minutes.
Mix in a shake of cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp egg whites and 1/2 cup blueberries. Microwave for 1 more minute.
Top with a drizzle of maple agave syrup and a heaping spoonful of macadamia nut butter. Garnish with extra berries. ENJOYYYYY!
Blueberries * have one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of all fruits and veggies. Their anthocyanidins counteract free radicals, which damage cells and tissues. One study demonstrated that blueberries improve memory and learning capacity in aging animals. They also protect against all forms of cancer, especially colon and ovarian cancer.
Oats * are complex carbohydrates, meaning they will not spike your blood sugar and are slow to digest.
Macadamia nuts * a good source of monounsaturated fats and contain B vitamins and calcium!
