Meet a girl just trying to survive college as a vegetarian triathlete

A love for…


Cinnamon. I LOVE cinnamon. I have found so many uses for cinnamon while being at school. Everyone knows it tastes great on oatmeal, sweet potatoes, and applesauce, but I have found some awesome uses for cinnamon. I put cinnamon on fruit (grapes, pineapple, melons, apples, etc.), bagels, and yogurt. But I also very much enjoy cinnamon in my cereal. I really like warm cinnamon Kashi Heart to Heart, but a horrible thing happened yesterday… I ran out of Heart to Heart! And with only a few days left of the year, I figured it would be a waste to go get anymore. I would just sprinkle cinnamon atop my cereal and it would be fine.

***We will get back to this in a moment, but it is now time to discuss lunch and the rest of my day. I promise it will all make sense in a bit***

So yesterday, I finished my final, went to Starbucks, came back to my room and packed. Oh my gosh its close to empty! This makes me a very sad girl. I am not ready to go home, I am going to miss JMU so much. It was then time for lunch, so since I had a jar of empty peanut butter, I decided it would be perfect to go ahead and try Courtney’s Oats in a Jar. It was awesome. I added a little bit of my love (see above) and an extra spoonful of peanut butter for good measure. It was delicious.

It was then time to study some more chem and then go for a run! It was a great run, I am not sure how fast/far we went, but it definitely felt great. I headed straight to dinner after the run and enjoyed a beautiful salad with the usual and some tofu and brown rice. I also had a bit of fruit. My stomach wasn’t feeling so great after the run so I decided it would be best to have a small dinner and a good snack before bed. But, it was not time for bed just yet… my friend and I took a hike over to walmart where I made this discovery…

**This is where we pick back up with cinnamon. Holy cow. This stuff is great! Shot out to Kellogg’s….what a great idea!** I mixed up some plain greek yogurt, half a banana, cinnamon CornFlakes, and frozen blueberries with a splash of soy milk! YUMMO! It was awesome….I may have had two bowls ๐Ÿ˜€

(I’m still working on the pictures…I just found my camera!)

I had a great sleep, woke up nice and early this morning for a lovely 75 minute swim. You know I came back to the room and had a delicious bowl of cereal with the rest of my plain cornflakes, pb puffins, kashi go lean and go lean crunch, homemade granola, honey bunches of oats (honey roasted), oatbran, and some frozen blueberries with vanilla soy milk!

Oh… and and apple on the side!

Off to go study!

Seriously, try the cinnamon cornflakes… you won’t be sorry!
