First off, I go to Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island.
Unfortunately, I'm taking all academic classes this term, so I won't be cooking until late November. Of course you guys will be the first to know exactly when that is.
You know I love being in my chef's whites!
|All the culinary students going to the Culinary Welcome!|
Grateful is really the only way I can describe it all. I feel so grateful to be here. This was my dream school and I'm actually here, studying what I LOVE. It wasn't easy getting to this point, so I'm just glad to be here. I'm here to work hard and learn how to be the best at what I love. Not everyone who is passionate about food gets to go to culinary school.
This is a loaf of warm, fresh, multigrain bread I got from the pastry students, who were giving them away. Pastry student: "Do you want a loaf of bread, we just made in class?" Me: "Why yes I do!" The bread was still warm!
Reason number 1,245 why I love culinary school, it's like living in a bakery. I forgot to mention that I inhaled this bread in 2 days. Yea, it was just alright.
How have I been eating?
Well, I must admit that the amount of "clean" or healthy foods here is limited but I make it work.
Here's the breakfast that I've become obsessed with over the course of 2 weeks.
|kashi go lean crunch cereal, raisins, and plain yogurt.|
I'm pretty much addicted to this. It's the closest thing I can get to the Greek yogurt and quinoa parfaits I make at home. Plus I'm become obsessed with raisins from eating this everyday. In fact, I just bought a box of raisins, that I eat plain. Yea I'm ninety years old.
Lunch is usually a salad with seasoned chicken breast which I LOVE!
Got this from one of the many on-campus restaurants run by students.
Salads aren't my favorite meal to eat but I must admit I feel like a million bucks after eating one.
Overall the food is delicious and my diet is the cleanest it's ever been. I eat tons of salad everyday and lots of fresh veggies and fruits. I haven't eaten a baked good in like 3 weeks. I KNOW! I'm totally due for one soon. Plus, I'm still HIITing the gym EVERY SINGLE DAY! Freshman 15 what?
