Sweet Sixteen!

Tomorrow is my SWEET SIXTEEN!! I’m PRETTY DARN excited!!

I just finished eating THE MOST delicious dinner.

Cabbage+Pork Chop+Butternut Squash fries+Sweet Potato fries+Ketchup!! I DIDN’T want this to EVER end! Open-mouthed smile


I’ve been trying LOTS of exciting things on the foodie front!!

Including butternut squash fries, purple sweet potato fries, and chocolate protein pancakes. I’ve actually had butternut squash fries and a purple sweet potato before, but it had been a LONGGG time.

As far as the chocolate protein pancakes recipe goes…

I made mine based on THIS awesome recipe!!
  • 1/8 cup Biochem 100% Whey Protein Powder (Chocolate Fudge)
  • 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • several shakes of cinnamon
  • 2 packets of stevia
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup skim milk

SO. INSANELY. GOOD. I will definitely make these again. I topped mine with a peanut butter flour drizzle, served with an egg scrambled with a variety of veggies. DSC_0402DSC_0403DSC_0404DSC_0405DSC_0406DSC_0407DSC_0408DSC_0409DSC_0410DSC_0411DSC_0412

I also tried Katie’s VOLUMINOUS oatmeal trick!! The night before I combined 1/3 cup oats+1.5 cups of water. I microwaved it for four minutes, then let it sit in the microwave for another five. I then placed it in the fridge overnight.

In the morning I added:

  • 1/2 container of vanilla chobani
  • peanut flour paste (1/4 cup peanut flour+a little less than the same amount of water+stevia)
  • blueberries

Really filling!!


I arrived at school today to find a LOVELY present from one of my classmates—LOVE her!!

Does she know me or what?!

  2. omg Sweet Sixteen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Birthday Jess!!!!!!!!! So exciting! I remember when i was turning 16, how excited I was too! Good luck on the test tomorrow! Dont stress if you don’t pass, you can always take it again, but I have a feeling you will!!

    Happy Birthday love! I hope its wonderful, that is what you deserve!!!!!! xoxo ❤

  3. I really must find a purple sweet potato! I’ve never even SEEN one in person before!

    HAPPY (early) SWEET 16!!!!!!!!! It’s an epic age. 😀 You will do fabulous on the driver’s test. The one thing I still remember that caught so many of my friends (but not me!) was checking my right rear when turning to my right in case any “bikers/pedistrians” have crept up behind you. It seems crazy when you think about it (wouldn’t you SEE said biker when you were approaching the stop sign/light?), but it knocks off points if you don’t! Anyways, I know you’ll do fantastic, so try not to stress over it, and I can’t wait to hear all about it!

  4. Woohoo happy sweet 16! Glad you had such a fabulous day! 🙂
