I made this drink the other day, and popped it in the freezer to be a tasty post work out treat. It’s full of berries and protein powder, so it’s sweet but also healthy! Let’s get right into it.
Fangirls, I love me some serious beets. Beets are a tasty and healthy root vegetable that can be made into all sorts of rad things. I usually just have them from a can, but I wanted to try something new, so I found a recipe for beet burgers, and I fell in love.
“It’s Just a wee sheep stomach!” Nope, not anymore. Hey Fangirls, this week we’ve got something that I’ve been excited to try since I first saw Brave; a vegetarian dish inspired by Haggis. Haggis is typically a dish made in sheep stomach, but for gals like me, that’s even more unappealing than to your average human. Being vegetarian means finding protein in places other than meat, but I know very few people who don’t experiment with food to find new ways to get their main courses other than frozen fake meat burgers. So I found a recipe online for Vegetarian Haggis, and went for it!
Fangirls, I was going to make a Steven Universe snack for today, but I had a really bad self esteem day yesterday, and spent a lot of time drinking a Bolthouse drink instead of eating. And when it came time to eat, I ended up eating crap food. The Bolthouse drink got me thinking about fad diets, though, and a conversation my mother and I had a week or so ago.
Fangirls, I’ve been trying to get a bit healthier recently, and one of the things I’ve been worrying about is what to eat after working out. I tend to crave sweet things, and that feels a bit counter productive; I can’t be just another cherry chasing dot muncher. I’ve noticed that waiting until at least after I’ve showered helps my sweet tooth slow down a bit, but I still want something sweet.
Well, Fangirls, Fall is upon us and Emily & I found a perfect opportunity to make a giant pot of soup when we started feeling the change in temperature the other night. Minestrone takes quite a few ingredients, but it’s well worth spending a few extra bucks on produce. This recipe is fantastic, makes a bunch and lasted us a few days!
So, Fangirls, Nerds Gotta Eat is going to be changing a little bit! But it’s for the better, I promise. Emily & I want to start eating healthier and being more active. So, we thought we would share our changes with the website, and show you guys what we’re eating to be healthier & how we’re getting more fit!
