Veggies, Eggs, and Cheese

Just a quick update on how I’m doing: I am feeling good, school is great, and I’m actually cooking for once.

I am not one to cook for myself, I usually just find something already made or snack instead of preparing my own meals. Being able to buy my own groceries and prepare them in my own kitchen has really inspired me to make my own breakfast (I’m still working on making other meals).

Eggs are the easiest things for me to cook and they don’t take very long so I really enjoy creating an egg-based meal. In the photo, I have cooked spinach and red bell peppers, an egg, and a slice of cheddar cheese with a side of avocado. This is just a variation of my typical egg breakfast. Sometimes I make them into a sandwich, sometimes I add turkey. It really depends on which groceries I have in the fridge that morning.

I also started to experiment with plain Greek yogurt. I had never been one to try something unflavored, but it turns out it is really good when you add fruit! In the picture above, I have sunflower seeds, raspberries, and blueberries with my yogurt. I am still figuring out what I like in my yogurt so next time I want to add granola and strawberries. It was a little tart the first time so I want to try some sweeter fruit.

If you have any breakfast suggestions, let me know! I really want to start cooking more often.

Xoxo,

First Week in Prague

Getting lost in the writing on the John Lennon wall

My first week in Prague is complete! Everyday this past week has been unreal. I’ve gone to class, dined at fancy restaurants, cooked in my apartment, went grocery shopping and so much more. The class sizes are smaller than my university at home, but I’m hoping that it’ll be easier to make friends that way! The professors are so nice and very willing to help. School is definitely something I will continue to look forward to while I’m here!

My apartment is located in a central location and it’s very easy to walk all around the city. My six roommates and I have already conquered the main tourist attractions and are very excited to continue to find out more about this place we call home.

Overall, It’s been a fantastic first week. Grocery shopping is something I’ll have to get used to, but it’s been fun so far. Luckily, I have great people here to adventure with and many stories to come!
