WIAW 1/20/16: Back to dorm eats!

January 20, 2016 in Yummy Eats

Hi guys and happy Wednesday! Hope you’re all having a great week- we are almost to Friday! I moved back into school Sunday and that means back to dorm room food and dining hall food- nothing fancy but going to be showing you some recent eats lately! Also thanks Jen for letting me share some yummy food and the link up. And PLEASE remember to not compare what you eat to what I eat. These posts are to just celebrate something that we all do, and that is eat!




Multigrain waffles+flax n chia pb from Trader Joes, an apple, and lots of cinnamon. Last breakfast before I headed off to college!


Cara cara orange and some honey nut cheerios with almond milk-typical college breakfast but honestly, who doesn’t love cereal?! 🙂


Ezeikel sprouted grain bread+Skippy natural pb+banana and a cara cara orange! (Been loving cara cara oranges lately if ya can’t tell hehe)



One of my last home-cooked meals of the week. Pear, carrots, and mashed avo+eggs on an Ezeikel sprouted grain english muffin!


Chipotle salad, the BEST <3 Topped with brown rice, pinto beans, veggies, corn, salsa, and guac- my favorite!



First time trying one of these cookies and they are absolutely amazing!! Loved this flavor so much.


Strawberry chobani+vanilla almond granola+blueberries!



Veggie burger and sweet potato fries from the dining hall!

And some Wednesday inspiration for you all because I loved this quote so much: “You eat your goddamn Cheerios and bicker with the bitch in your head who keeps telling you you’re fat and weak: Shut up, you say, I’m busy, leave me alone. When she leaves you alone, there’s a silence and a solitude that will take some getting used to. You will miss her sometimes. Bear in mind she’s trying to kill you. Bear in mind you have a life to live.”- Marya Hornbacher

Now tell me:

What is your go-to Chipotle order?

Are you a fan of sweet potato fries? 

Thank you so much for reading. Hope you all have a great day! 🙂


Lyss <3

    Cereal will ALWAYS be a favorite snack and love of mine – you’re so right, who doesn’t love cereal?! That guac looks amazing. I’m a bowl girl from Chipotle – I love their sofritas (tofu!)

      Cereal is the BEST! And I also love the bowls from Chipotle. I need to try the sofritas though! Thanks for reading Sarah 🙂

    I freaking love that quote! That’s a great way of putting it. EDs really do feel like toxic relationships.
    I haven’t had fried eggs for breakfast in a long time- now I want them!! Yum.

    • Reply Alyssa January 20, 2016 at 1:52 pm

      Loved it too! Definitely shows the mind games that eating disorders can play with us! Fried eggs are my favorite, love the yolk especially when over some mashed avocado and toast! Hope you have a great Wednesday Kate!

    chipotle burrito bowl with lots of guac is always a must for me! And sweet potato fries are my weakness 🙂

    • Reply Alyssa January 20, 2016 at 5:41 pm

      The guac is absolutely amazing 🙂 best part! And same here, I’m obsessed with anything with sweet potatoes-sweet potato crackers or fries or even just a good old sweet potato with almond butter! Thanks for reading! Xoxo

  • Reply Taylor January 20, 2016 at 6:00 pm

    Yum!! All of your meals look amazing!! I love Chipotle burrito bowls!…. and their guac! so good!

    • Reply Alyssa January 20, 2016 at 6:31 pm

      Chipotle burrito bowls are the best. Wish I could recreate their guac, but nothing comes close to how good Chipotle’s is! Thanks for reading Taylor 🙂

    That’s a great quote! Love sweet potato fries any day, everyday if I could!

    • Reply Alyssa January 20, 2016 at 10:36 pm

      Same here, they are the best! Just a huge sweet potato fan in general 🙂 thanks for reading sheena!

    I’ve never lived in a dorm but sometimes find myself wishing that I could have experienced the food (is that a really silly thing to say?!) And I’ve never been to Chipotle because there are none near where I live. The day that I can experience it for the first time will be such an exciting one for me! haha Hope you’re having a good week 🙂

    • Reply Alyssa January 21, 2016 at 12:05 am

      lol not silly at all! Dining hall life is interesting to say the least- it has its good days and bad days! Ahhh hope you get to try chipotle soon! It is amazing. Hope you are having a great week too, thanks for reading Jacklyn 🙂

    THOSE SWEET POTATO FRIES!! And I agree that oranges are really killin’ it right now. Orange foods in general apparently 😉

    • Reply Alyssa January 21, 2016 at 1:07 am

      Orange foods really are killing it lately- sweet potato fries, carrots, oranges!! Gotta love em 🙂

  • Reply Cora January 21, 2016 at 12:11 am

    Crinkly Cut fries!! Those just got me so excited. I swear crinkly cut taste different (better) than regular cut. And that guacamole… pile ‘er on I say. Welcome back to school! I miss residence eats. Having no real responsibility is quite the blessing (although sometimes hard to feel when you are on meal 10339203490).

    • Reply Alyssa January 21, 2016 at 12:47 am

      I loveee crinkly cut fries too. And right?! The guacamole is heavenly at chipotle. Thank you for reading Cora! 🙂 Hope you had a great day!

    I’ve been snacking on Complete Cookies recently as well! I love the Birthday Cake and White Chocolate Macadamia flavors 🙂 They’re even better warmed up in the microwave!!

    • Reply Alyssa January 21, 2016 at 3:03 pm

      I need to try those flavors! and ohhh they sound amazing heated up in the microwave! Thanks for reading Melanie 🙂

  • Reply Ellie January 21, 2016 at 1:30 am

    I love that quote! Eat your cherrios! Especially if they are honey nut 🙂 I haven’t been to chipotle in a loooong time but I always get a burrito when I go out for Mexican. I love those little packages of love. Sweet potatoes are great in all forms, I think my favorite way to have them are either fries or chips. I love the crunch 🙂

    • Reply Alyssa January 21, 2016 at 1:35 am

      Honey nut are the best 🙂 I love sweet potato chips too! Or sweet potato with nut butter and cinnamon 🙂 so yum!!

  • Reply Stephanie Leduc January 21, 2016 at 4:22 am

    You eggs look so pretty and I am super intrigued by that cookie!?? The burger with fries you had looked soooooo good!!

    • Reply Alyssa January 21, 2016 at 4:26 am

      The cookie is amazing!! It’s a Len and Larry’s cookie and I got it from GNC! So so good! Also love the burger and fries combo 🙂

  • Reply Liv @ Healthy Liv January 21, 2016 at 4:38 am

    Looks like some delicious eats! My go-to Chipotle order is a brown rice bowl with chicken, fajita veggies, black and pinto beans, and tomato salsa. It NEVER gets old! Hoping Chipotle gets their food safety issues under control soon, too!

    • Reply Alyssa January 21, 2016 at 1:37 pm

      That sounds so good, I love chipotles chicken! And me too-so surprising that all of that happened to chipotle in the first place! Thanks for reading liv 🙂

    I went to Chipotle for the first time in MONTHS last weekend with my boyfriend after moving into my sorority house! I can’t believe I had gone so long without it! I order a salad with chicken, veggies and lots of salsa. All your eats look yummy!

    • Reply Alyssa January 22, 2016 at 12:41 am

      Chipotle is amazing! I love their salsa and their chicken 🙂 so yummy! Hope you are having a great week Sarah!
