Keep Calm and MarathON?

No, I didn’t run a marathon. Okay, it wasn’t a 10K either.

I didn’t even run.

But I ate! A lot. I like green eggs and… avocado toast?

With crumbled banana muffin and creamy yogurt with sunflower butter. This is the best bread ever, freshly-baked from Sobeys. It’s so soft and makes the perfect toasty vehicle with smashed avocadoes, nut butter + banana, or some simple butter.

For the annual Applied Health Sciences Fun Run that I am helping to coordinate, we are making these big posters for the children’s section! They will be doing a superhero-themed activity, and there will be lots of photo booth props as you can see from the top-left corner. The SUPERHERO TRAINING poster is finally now coloured and finished!

These are some of the others I drew. We have some awesome markers that make any kind of drawing look neat! The pizza one is my favourite – cartoons are always fun to design and draw. ๐Ÿ™‚

They’ve been coloured since these photos were taken – I wish I could show you the coloured versions!

Okay, back to the food. Avocados were used again in these lovely enchiladas. I think enchiladas are little rolls of happiness. I filled mine with black beans, corn, scallions, butternut squash, and white cheddar. This medium-spicy green enchilada sauce was perfect and paired well with the salsa.

Another day I enjoyed creamy red coconut curry with zucchini, mushrooms, scallions, and a load of crushed peanuts. Quinoa bed underneath was much enjoyed as well!

Here’s a video that I made for my school’s Mission Nutrition team – it’s all about deliciousness in the form of a cheesy omelet!

Remember when I went to SLxONTARIO a couple weeks ago? Professional photographs were released the other day. I wish my camera was still in good condition. Did you notice that all my photos are now iPhone pics? And, sadly, I don’t have plans yet for buying a new camera.

The day before yesterday there were zero groceries in the house and I wanted to try Freshii, the salad bar located on King Street. Freshii is essentially “healthy fast food”. I had this mix and match bowl with tons of brown rice on the bottom and heaps of cool toppings. The verdict? It wasn’t bad, but I wouldn’t have it again. I liked the spicy yogurt dressing, simple tofu, and the crispy tortilla chips. Otherwise, the avocado was a little brown and had an odd, crackly texture (as if it had been frozen), the toasted almonds weren’t toasted, and I didn’t like how they used canned corn and cold mushrooms. I also wish I’d been given more spinach! The bowl, however, was insanely filling. However, it cost $15, which is more than a soup and sandwich at Princess Cafe would cost – in my opinion, $15 is too much for a fast-food bowl.

After Freshii, I went to Chatime and chugged a milk puddingย tea so quickly that I felt like I was going to vomit for the next couple of hours. That’s me looking super, super sick while messaging my sister…

Just kidding! She got mad at me because I put her silly faces online.

Interviews start NEXT WEEK! I applied for 34 jobs, most of which are physiotherapy assistant positions. Yesterday, I put my interview outfit through for a little dress rehearsal and was surprised to find it quite comfortable. I normally wear a skirt to interviews, so I was pleasantly surprised by how these dress pants felt. Do you have any go-to interview dress tips?


Dinner last night was quinoa with zucchini and mushrooms, plus some amazing spicy sweet potato chips and goat cheese donated by the roomie ๐Ÿ™‚ This dinner was so filling, but I nibbled on sweets afterwards anyways.

Ending with some randomness that has been my life recently. Second-year life?

And off I go to nibble on some more sunflower butter!

  1. Healthy eating is an endurance event of responsible meals even though there may be moments of naughty indulgence where you dash into bakeries for fattening donuts and pastries. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your posters show a lot of talent. Good luck on the job hunt.
