“it’s in the stars
it’s been written in the scars on our hearts
that we’re not broken, just bent
and we can learn to love again”

i started an online jewelry store with my boyfriend. it’s 9738314.6 times more fulfilling than my unorganized bullshit grad program. we have lots of awesome stuff. check it out by clicking the picture. on a related note, it’s weird to refer to chris as my boyfriend. but i like it.

i love tim tebow. i love the jets. why am i not excited about tim tebow being a jet? i think all this trade does is confirm my suspicion that the jets have no idea what the fuck they are doing. and that kinda makes me sad. let’s compare the jets to a really good football team, for example our division rivals, the new england patriots. the patriots are awesome at football and win lots of games. they do not spend the offseason running around like a bunch of attention loving circus freaks. as evidenced by the 2011-12 season, media attention DOES NOT equal Ws. i think rex and co. need to take some notes. now lets go eat some goddamn kale chips.

lunch of the week :: quinoa and broccoli salad

a new week means yet another chance to not be the least healthy future nutritionist on the planet. on sunday i cooked a bunch of quinoa and planned to recreate the “super healthy salad” from hummus kitchen. the salad consists of quinoa, dried apricots and cranberries, walnuts, roasted sweet potatoes, and a mint-yogurt dressing. the dressing is amazing and totally makes the salad. however, after finding the perfect dressing recipe online, i was disappointed to find that all the mint at the grocery store was slimy and gross.

so instead of giving up and buying mini pizza bagels, i decided to put my own spin on quinoa salad. i had some little pre-cut broccoli florets from trader joe’s which i blanched. i also made a really effing delicious dressing out of (1) the juice from one lemon, (2) olive oil, (3) dijon mustard, and (4) salt and pepper. i let the broccoli cool in the fridge and then put it over some quinoa and topped it with a few teaspoons of my lemon-dijon dressing and some parmesan flakes (because cheese makes everything 1000x better, duh). my salad was SO good. i seriously think i could (and might) eat it everyday. it also gave me a ton of energy (or maybe that was the large dunks iced coffee with two sugars? who knows), and helped me to concentrate during 90+ slides of advanced nutrition notes.

the picture doesn’t do it justice. but take my word for it and MAKE THIS SALAD. i already packed another for lunch tomorrow :)
