Back to School

Winter break is officially over. Sad face.


My day started off with two hours of pharmacoeconomics. This was not exactly an ideal way for me to start my last academic semester, considering the fact that I am absolutely horrible at anything econ/government/business related. Naturally, this means that while I know that I probably should, I have zero interest in nor do I understand how the stock market works. Therefore, you can imagine my anxiety when the professor went over this assignment:




It's exactly what it sounds like. We have pretend money and buy pretend shares and then do whatever a person with said shares would normally do. I couldn't tell you what that is right now, but hopefully I will be able to by the end of the assignment. I'd imagine it'd be rather difficult to pass the assignment without this knowledge.




We had a three hour lunch break today between classes, so I took advantage of the free time and went over to Elly's to catch up with her.





Lunch was this sammie that I packed this morning:



Turkey, swiss, spinach, and mashed avocado on whole grain

Have I mentioned that I love this whole eating every two hours deal? I don't feel deprived at all anymore like I used to. The thing with me is, regardless of whether I eat a fairly large meal or a small meal, I'm always hungry a few hours later. With this new eating schedule, everytime I get hungry, it's time to eat again! I think it's going to make it a lot easier to stick to. It's perfect for a food addict like me ;)

Snacks today included yogurt, almonds, and cottage cheese w/ blueberries. I heart snacks.


Found this in my freezer tonight when I was searching for dinner candidates:




The fact that it's low calorie, packed with protein, and virtually carb free made the decision a no-brainer.




It cooked up nicely and was pretty tasty. However, I am not totally crazy about all those ingredients on the package, but I know that's the price you pay when you buy pre-seasoned/pre-flavored frozen meat. If anyone has any tips/advice on how to easily season and prepare fish, let me know, but you should be warned that you are dealing with one lazy chick here. Nothing beats being able to take a package out of the freezer, pop it in the oven, and have a delicious tilapia dinner twenty minutes later. I guess this is one scenario where I say "oh well" to the added chemicals and preservatives.




Oh, and yes; you guessed it. Those are frozen veggies on the side ;)



Did I mention that I'm really lazy?



Off to spinning and then it's Bachelor time!! Can you believe he kept the vampire chick?!

  4. In response to your super quick fish dinner, here's this. It works well with salmon, tilapia, orange roughy, and trout. Feel free to try it with others!

    You will need:
    -two pieces tin foil
    -non-stick spray
    -fresh (or thawed) fish (however big of serving you want)
    -1 lemon (1/2 sliced)
    -1 lime (1/2 sliced)
    -fresh basil and rosemary
    -salt and pepper to taste

    Preheat oven to 350F

    Spray one piece of tinfoil with cooking spray. Lay down fish and season with salt and pepper. Lay slices of lemon and lime over the fish along with basil and rosemary. Squeeze other non sliced halves of lemon and lime over fish. Spray other half of tinfoil and cover. Fold edges in to make a pouch. Put in oven and bake approx 30 min or until fish is done. This depends on how thick the pieces of fish are.

    Variations:

    I have put mesquite seasoning on these for more flavor (delicious!)

    In the summertime this is super easy to throw on a grill to let cook

    I will also through in some mixed veggies (usually broccoli and cauliflower) and let them steam as it cooks and you get steamed veggies! If you are careful you won't over cook them and have mushy veggies.
