Tots, Bacon, & Sausage – Life is Good

It’s been over 2 months since my last blog post, and what an overwhelming 2 months it’s been.  I’ve since started my 4th year of college, notoriously the most intense year of the 6 yearlong program.  I’ve downed countless cups of coffee since, so many that I’ve lost track, and so many that it’s pushed me to finally get a move on and open a Starbucks rewards card.  At the rate I’m going, I’ll be a gold member in a matter of days.  My fellow coffee lovers, do you ever get the feeling you could single-handedly keep a coffee shop in business with the amount of times you frequent their establishment?

Most days, I find I’m too busy to eat a legitimate meal.  I’ll literally bring 2 snack size bags of goldfish crackers to last me from when I wake up at 6 am until I come home at 7:30 at night.  It’s a bad habit, and I’ve been trying to do better…sort of.  I’ve progressed to either skipping breakfast BUT eating a legitimate lunch, oooor eating a substantial breakfast around mid-morning, which keeps me full through lunch time.  Take for example…
foodTater tots, bacon, and sausages – SO GOOD!!  I’ll eat this box around mid-morning, and wash it down with a Venti Ice Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks and I’ll be stuffed until early afternoon.  And I’ve found that when I eat fuller meals like this, I no longer feel the need to bring snack foods.  So instead of spending money on tons of snack foods to fill my school bag with, I just put the money towards buying more substantial meals instead.  And I feel better because my stomach’s not growling during class.  The only drawback is that following the meal with a giant coffee is a must because I get THE WORST food coma when I eat anything bigger than a snack like the goldfish crackers, it’s awful.  Hence the Starbucks rewards card.

Thanks for reading!!
