Peanut Butter Fingers offers convenient, healthy recipes
Like most college students, my diet usually consists of way too many frozen pizzas, Hot Pockets, macaroni and cheese and maybe, if I’m lucky, I can convince my mom to give me leftovers. Having your own kitchen is super exciting for maybe two months until you realize you don’t know how to cook anything except noodles, and everything you buy no longer sounds appetizing. Then one day you look at the ingredients label and realize why you put on the “sophomore 15,” or you get to the point of “screw it, let’s just go Taco Bell.” It’s all downhill from there.
Many cooking blogs are complicated and geared toward someone who cooks for a family and has access to a multitude of food and supplies. As a female college student, I want something relatively simple and hopefully remotely healthy.
Contrary to its name, Julie Fagan’s blog Peanut Butter Fingers offers healthy recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacks, smoothies and holiday treats. Her instructions are fairly simple and paired with tons of appetizing pictures.
Advocating a healthy lifestyle doesn’t stop Fagan from throwing in sweet treat recipes like “Red Velvet Cake Brownies” and “Homemade Munchkins,” which are her version of powdered donut-holes. As a fan of anything pumpkin-flavored, I’d like to try the “Two Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cookies” that thankfully only include three instructions: mix, bake and cool. I can handle that.
Aside from sweets, Fagan’s recipes for “POM Pancakes” for breakfast and “Cashew Crusted Salmon” for dinner are must-tries. She also offers all-vegetarian options, soups and snacks such as “Nutella Granola.” Add some smoothies in the mix and eat six mini-meals everyday, like Fagan, and you’re sure to lose all that holiday food weight.
Fagan also posts about her daily workout routines including treadmill workouts, circuit workouts and workout playlists. With her food ideas and fitness training, who needs frozen pizza?
Other sections of the website include fashion, travel, her gorgeous wedding pictures and a “Favs” list that includes shops, recipes, fitness routines and more. I wouldn’t say I want her life, but who am I kidding?
I’m happy I stumbled upon her blog’s fitness and diet ideas because I have given up Taco Bell and tried to reverse the downhill spiral that is frozen food cooking. Ladies, I’m talking to you, because let’s be real, the guys are hopeless.
