Even More Summer
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who put in their two cents and amazing support on my last post. So many people, women especially, feel as if they are under constant criticism with their weight and sizes. This paired with crazy media sources give so many people a skewed perception of what is “healthy.” Healthy is not all about being skinny!
Remember last week when I told you my summer had been extended until today because of renovation delays at my school?
Yea, well guess what.
They found asbestos in my school [that we have all probably been breathing in for years, anyway] and now school is not starting until Wednesday. Yes, please! I’ll take as MUCH summer as I can get! :)
Just because school has not started, I still had a first day today. I am taking one class at a university in my city four days a week, and classes started today. I feel all grown up, because this was my first class on a college campus! It was exciting, even though Calculus may not turn out to be! ;)
Since I could sleep in a bit, I woke up and immediately ate a yogurt and made myself a Reese Cup smoothie. Cold, creamy breakfasts scream summer to me! Oh, and have I mentioned how much I love peanut flour? Because I do. It makes everything amazing.
After class, I was completely starving, so I made a quick-lunch of peppers, fresh green beans, and a veggie burger topped with laughing cow swiss cheese.
The steam rolling off the green beans fogged up my camera lens. :/
And where did I find these great looking, fresh green beans you may ask?
At the Farmer’s Market. Along with some other great finds!
Gorgeous, fresh apples! I love apples, and these really put waxy supermarket apples to shame!
And no doubt, this is the best find at the market yesterday. This is the biggest cantaloupe I’ve ever seen in my life!
I had a bowl filled up when I was not even close to half way finished cutting this melon up! I was cutting for a solid 35 minutes, but let me tell you, it was totally worth it! It tastes amazing. I eat a piece every time I open my fridge… it’s a little dangerous for this much great fruit to be sitting in convenient reach every time I walk into my kitchen.
I’m new to Farmer’s Market shopping. Do you go to a Farmer’s Market?
What is your favorite thing to get there and do you have any tips for buying local?
