Crunchy Thai Inspired Salad with a Spicy Ginger Peanut Sauce

My friends call me a bunny because I can actually just rip off a leaf from a head of lettuce and eat it without anything else.

Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal

I can’t believe I haven’t written about oatmeal yet! It’s a staple in my life! It’s the breakfast I eat most often. Even if I don’t want to eat it and my mom made it, I’m gonna have to eat it anyway. She always tells me I need to eat something that “sticks to my ribs”.

I don’t really have the time to make a fresh breakfast in the mornings, so on Sundays, I usually make muffins and put them in the fridge. Then in the mornings, I take one or two and pop them in the microwave to warm them up and grab them along with my cup of tea. I usually grab a banana as well, because without it my stomach ¬†seems to grumble the loudest in the quietest parts of class.
