things change!

13 Apr

I’ve found that in this life, things are always changing and almost nothing ever goes as planned. A few funny little reminders (for you & me!) that change isn’t always bad.

I’ve mentioned Bagel Wednesday before, but just as a refresher, on Wednesday’s where I work there are bagels. What I didn’t tell you is – every day there is cereal. Yep, an entire room dedicated to cereal. Almost any kind you could imagine – sugary or healthy. This was extremely exciting the first few months, but how much cereal can a girl eat? While all of you bloggers are eating your protein packed overnight oats, breakfast cookies, and whatever else – I’m here, still eating cereal. I know, I know, this may sound glamorous and fun, but once you’ve tried it all…. sugary (but made with whole grains… ;)?), healthy, and everything in the middle, you really do want to call it quits; however, you proceed on because well, this city is expensive, and cereal is free.

A few weeks ago, I tried to battle my breakfast woes with bagel thins… three days later, I was done with that and back to cereal. Once you go NY bagel, you never go back.

This week, while at Trader Joe’s, I decided to dig back into my own breakfast funds and give another type of breakfast a good ol’ college try. Enter: frozen whole grain waffles.

Monday & Tuesday I had these with TJ’s honey apple butter and frozen raspberries.

Sososo good. In fact, I had an admirer of my honey apple butter in the kitchen. “but does it taste more like apple, or more like honey?”

Enter: Bagel Wednesday. My usual favorite day of the week. (Next to Friday, Saturday, and Sunday that is.) I’ve gotten obsessed with bagels, ask Jamie – I’m always gushing over them. Well, not today. I looked at my bagel (you have to grab the one you want EARLY – whole wheat everything = hot item.) and all I wanted was my sweet, sweet waffles.

Things really, really do change. (Except I ate it anyway… Duh.)

Changes also come in the form of a meat-loving-veggie-hating-boyfriend who I never thought could turn into even a semi-foodie like those other blog legends I’ve heard.

He even bought some kind of special TJ’s dressing for this said salad. A few months ago, Danny didn’t even know what I was referring to when I said I wanted to go to TJ’s.

Last week, I received a few surprising texts leading to this, too. Pictures of his food, a picture on a menu of some risotto I would like, and best of all:

Now that’s change I’d like to stick around. πŸ˜€

Last and certainly not least, things do change in the cupcake world, as well. I used to wonder why people would ever stand in a line so long at Baked By Melissa when there are Crumbs around.

And then, it hit me last weekBaked By Melissa cupcakes are tiny. The perfect treat size that you don’t feel guilty about. Now that I’ve tried them, I absolutely cannot wait for the one by my job to open soon. Crumbs and Baked By Melissa are just different.

Birthday Cake, Smores, and PB

See, changes can be teeny tiny, too. πŸ˜‰ Any of you experience positive changes lately? It’s nice to have these little reminders that change can actually be a good thing sometimes! Happy hump day! πŸ˜€

    I love breakfast food in general so I would just be rotating cereal, bagels, and waffles as my three meals of the day:) I seriously love that I have been basically brainwashing my boyfriend with my vegetarian, too! The other day when I was home we had tacos, I had soyrizo, chorizo tasting soy product, and my mom made ground beef. My boyfriend requested one of each types of tacos and like mine better! He sometimes likes things more than I do…it’s crazy! Those little cupcakes look delish, my favorite cupcake it actually s’mores, super jealous!

      That would be the smart thing to do, but alas I must obsess until I’m sick of things!!

    Ha, my BF is the exact same way (and named Danny as well). He was so against vegetarianism and now he says things like ‘I think I ate too much meat this week.’ I never thought I would see the day!
    That is so rad that your work has cereal/bagels. And honey apple butter sounds tasty.

      Love that yours is named Danny just like Jamie’s & I’s!! πŸ™‚ They’re good ones. I highly doubt I’ll ever see THAT day, though. πŸ˜‰

    Those cupcakes are so cute and they’re bite sized! I loved your reasons for running! It’s my selfish “me” time too!

    What is it with men and their aversion to healthy food?! Ha ha, love the comments from your boyfriend. Looks like he’s coming around πŸ™‚

    I’m addicted to bagels really. I haven’t had my smoked salmon bagel in a week or two so I might have to look into that clearly.

    I love when you can switch your boyfriend into eating like you – good work girl πŸ™‚
