I made the last minute decision to stay up and finish my posterboard and am so glad I did – all assignments complete!!!!!!!!!!! Here’s a recap of the semester from up “Upcoming Assignments” project on ToDoist (and these are just the major ones!)
This afternoon I’m planning to spend a little time organizing all of my notes to study for finals next week. Thankfully I was very organized this semester and have everything from the previous tests printed out in PowerPoint form. The easier it is to see, the easier it is to understand! I could probably not study a lick and still do well enough on finals to get OK grades, but of course I want to go for all A’s 🙂
Since we’re doing more taste testing in lab today, I had a lighter breakfast. But I added a fun spin. I bought Stonyfield Low-Fat Plain yogurt at HT yesterday because we’re running low and I haven’t had this kind in ages and and wanted to refresh my opinion. Well, it’s no greek yogurt (or European either!) It’s got much more tang and liquid. So I decided to turn my breakfast cup into thicker yogurt.
Put in a colander with a paper towel over a bowl –
This morning it was nice and thick! The tang was still there, but the texture was perfect. You are mostly just losing whey protein (the liquid) and leaving the casin (the curd) so I image this reduces the protein/calories of the yogurt but probably not by much. It was not much hand’s on labor, but it took a while (overnight) to do, so not sure if I’d do this all the time. Plus, I’d feel funny about doing this to a whole container and then putting it back in the container – see like a good way to introduce lots of bacteria to your yogurt. But for 1 serving (or 2), loved it.
So on top of my yogurt I layered: ~6 strawberries, ~1/3 cup mango (pre-diced yesterday), ~1/4 cup TJ’s high fiber worms, ~2 tbsp Mix My Granola and 1 tbsp flax.
Spring Blend – frothy coffee
With the spider-filled spider mums!
I missed my daily dose of PB, but when I am tasting cake later, I’m sure i”ll be glad I kept it light.
