I just thought I would let you all know that I may not be able to update my blog for the next month and a half.  I am coming to the end of my school semester and I have so much work that has to get done.  I have assignments/quizzes due every week and then (due at the end of the semester) I have a…

  • 3 – 4.5 page paper due for sociology
  • 5 – 7 page paper due for American Government
  • 7 – 10 page paper due for my Internet Law class

I will try to do at least one post once a week but I can’t guarantee anything.  I am going to be a busy bee until the end of the semester.  I wish I could do everything, blog twice a day and get all this school work done but I just have to focus on my schoolwork.  Don’t worry if I do not post I will be back April 20 for sure.  While I am away though I will still be taking picture of my eats and I will have posts of all the highlights while I’m away.



This morning I was looking for something fast.  I don’t have a lot of time to cook today so I went with some eggs.  On the side I had some honeydew and cantaloupe, by the way the cantaloupe is already gone.  I think I am going to have to get another one today.  Also, I had some left over waffles from yesterday so I threw them in the freezer, wrapped in plastic wrap.  I thought I would try and put one in the toaster(hoping that it would come out good).  Let me tell you, it was great!  I am definitely going to make and freeze some more.  To wrap up the whole meal I had a glass of milk (it was a whole glass but by the time I finished cooking the eggs it was only half full).  This meal was so easy and with school coming to an end I definitely need some quick ideas for meals.

Well, I am off; I have some much needed grocery shopping to do, laundry and I also have some homework that is due tomorrow that I have to work on.  Have a wonderful Monday!

Ps.  I almost forgot… At the beginning of the 100 Days of Real Food Challenge I thought I would weigh myself to see how much I could lose throughout the 100 Days.  Well today ways that start of week 2 and I am already down 2.75 pounds.  It is just so exciting and I have been eating awesome food and have not been depriving myself with not enough food.  I also feel like I have more energy throughout the day.  It is amazing that eating whole foods. for such a short time, can change the way you feel almost instantly.

I was all ready to go out and get some things done today but there is freezing rain in the forecast and I am just not in the mood to venture out in that.



I had 2 eggs with the last of the muenster cheese and some oniony paprika red potatoes.  I also had a glass of 100% orange juice (the best!).  Always a great breakfast.



For lunch today I had a salad with some cherry tomatoes, Portobello mushrooms and avocado dijon dressing. So spicy and yummy!

Ingredients for dressing:

1 small avocado

2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard (I used organic)

2 Tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil (In the picture above it says light olive oil but I have been refilling the container with extra virgin)

Salt and pepper to taste (I just added it to the top of the salad after assembling it)

Mix everything together until smooth (I used my magic bullet but u could do this by hand)

Yields: 2 servings

Here is the salad put together…


And on the side I had…


a quarter cup raw almonds and a quarter cup green seedless raisins.

Well, now I am off to do some work.  Hopefully I can get to the store tomorrow so I can make some more yummy recipes!  Have a great afternoon.

I can do this Real food thing for the rest of my life if I can eat (the yumminess) like I did last night for dinner.

I thought what would be faster then breakfast for dinner.  So I made some organic eggs, with a splash of milk and organic munster cheese.  Then I had two slices of Great Harvest honey wheat bread with REAL butter (who knew real butter could taste that good… I sure didn’t).  I am so use to using light butter and all that.  I also had a banana.

Now getting to this morning. I made…

Greek yogurt oatmeal with raspberries and almonds.  I need my fuel to get some of my homework done so I don’t have to stress about it towards the end of the semester.  I am also going to be making a few recipes I found tonight.  I am hoping that they turn out good.  I will definitely be back later with a review of both recipes for sure.

Right now I am working on getting my domain name set up and everything working on it.  I am so excited and can’t wait until all of you see the exciting stuff I have planned.  So add eatlivetravel.com to your goodle readers please 🙂


Breakfast today was quick and easy.  I just has a couple eggs and some….

Banana and blueberries!

I didn’t want to eat to much because my parents and I am going to a great pizza place for late lunch with the whole family and I didn’t want to fill up too much.  I have to save room for all the great food.  Well, I have to start getting ready but I will be back later.

Yes you read that right!  The snow is coming again and we are probably going to get like 3 to 6 inches… I am so ready for this winter stuff to be over with and for the warm sunny weather to come rolling in.  But I am done talking about the weather now because I just don’t want to think about it anymore.


Yesterday when I was at the grocery store I bought some eggs.  The eggs that I got were Cage Free Organic and I just have to say that they were really good.  I also added some milk to the eggs before cooking them to make them more fluffy and some cheddar cheese.  On the side I had some honey whole wheat toast and a banana.


I ate leftovers from last nights dinner but I changed it up a little.  Instead of putting everything in a tortilla I put it over brown rice.  Super quick, easy and so good.  In the pile (starting for the bottom) there is brown rice, chicken, onions, red peppers, sour cream, salsa, and a little shredded Mexican cheese blend.


I was having a hard time coming up with something to make for dinner but then I decided to make a veggie stir-fry since veggies where absent all day today.  In the mix is broccoli, red pepper, onion, and cremini mushrooms over couscous.  There is some general tao’s sauce on it too.  Since I am trying to use up all of the processed stuff I thought I would use the last of it.

Now I am just relaxing and looking for some meal ideas for when the 100 Days of REAL Food Challenge starts.  I am getting really excited about it now and have found some great recipes so far that I can’t wait to try.  It should be an interesting 100 days 🙂
