01/07: MIMM

by Meg on January 7, 2013

Well, it’s back to the grind stone today.

Ok, not really. Even though classes resume at my university today, I don’t have to get back into the books just yet. The single course that I am taking this term, Community Nutrition: Supervised Fieldwork and Research, doesn’t require any in-class lecture hours. So, all I need to do right now is email my professor today and set up a time to meet with her! My to do list isn’t overwhelming yet, but I am sure that things will become quite hectic as time goes on; however, it will be no where near as stressful as last term…

It’s going to be a great way to finish up my undergrad! I can’t believe I’m graduating this year with my Bachelor of Science in Foods and Nutrition! I am quite excited and proud of myself ;)

Something else I am excited about is Marvelous Monday! :)

There are many things marvelous about my Monday already…

- A delicious breakfast

whipped cottage cheese and avocado blend sweetened with stevia and topped with quinoa

- My upcoming chest and biceps workout

- A tea date with my friend at noon (it’s Meg Monday and we always have tea together on these days!)

But, there was many marvelous events that occurred over the weekend, too!

- Dinner nights with my boyfriend! He spoils me so much! One night he made steak (I am loving it more and more these days!)and the next night he made me shrimp with a warm vinaigrette!

I’ve been enjoying my winter break so much, but it’s time to face reality and get back into somewhat of a routine. Today might be all fun and games – a workout, a tea date, etc., but I think I might be applying for a job later on this week! I’ll need something to keep me busy along with my one course this term.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Keep it marvelous! ;)

Love always,

Meg

P.s. please start emailing me with your high fives for this week’s High Five Friday post! Read here for more information.

What’s marvelous about your Monday?

Are you back to work/school today?

What was the liver pate like?!? I’ve never tried it before–in fact, I’m not sure I know exactly what it is. Have a great Monday!

Reply

Meg January 7, 2013 at 11:37 AM

Mmmmm the pate was amazing. I’m not sure if you’ve ever had liver before, but I love it! It was spicy because it was peppercorn flavoured! SO GOOD!

I’m swooning over that cottage cheese and quinoa breakfast! It’s on my must-make list this week, and you’ll definitely know when it happens! <3

I'm even more convinced that I need to come to London and see the man whipping up these amazing meals in action. Lucky girl! But he's *really* the lucky one because he has YOU!

Have a fabulous Meg Monday! I wish I could join you for a cup of tea! <3 xoxo

Congrats on your last semester of undergrad, enjoy it! And yum to all of your eats, minus the liver, I’m not sure I would be able to try it… Maybe if it was disguised as something haha :P

Oh goodness it’s so sweet your bf cooked for you, and mannn did he do a good job! I thought it was food from a restaurant :D And I hope your week goes well, and that your job application process is successful–it can get difficult sometimes but don’t be discouraged and keep pressing on.

Love that your boyfriend cooks for you! And from your pictures it all looks pretty good :)

Thank you Katie xo

Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen January 8, 2013 at 12:40 PM

SO much marvelous! Going back to work (in my case, elementary school) was SO hard yesterday, but there was something comforting about being back in my ‘routine.’ I felt like my workout was better, I made better meal choices…all the little things that get thrown out of whack on a long break. [Not that I didn't love the laziness and relaxation. ;)]

Um. Cottage cheese + avocado? Wow, what a great idea. I actually got a free tub of cottage cheese with a coupon that I need to use…but I’m nervous since my stomach isn’t just a lactose fan. [I couldn't resist FREE though...and I miss cottage cheese from my more strict vegan days.]

Reply

Meg January 8, 2013 at 2:34 PM

Oh you need to try cottage cheese and avocado! Hopefully your tum tum tolerates it :)

So happy you are loving being back in a routine – there really isn’t anything like it!!
