I'm grateful for...
Starting in September, I had a lot of not-so-good days. Extreme fatigue, finding it hard to accomplish any tasks and most of all communicating my feelings to people around me. I felt like a burden. But when I finally did open up, I felt better and was reminded that I do have people who care about me.
My friends are what I'm extremely grateful for lately. They accommodated my needs and were 100% there for me in every way that I needed them to be. So thanks, friends. Love ya.
Comes Again by Howard Stern! One thing about me is that I love interviews and I love pop culture of the past. This book is a collection of Stern's favorite interviews with a brief synopsis from himself before.

Let's be book buds on Good Reads!
Bon Appetit Youtube Channel - I am obsessed. There are so many great segments that are just so entertaining but also really educational. Some even compliment the Food Science course that I'm currently taking, as they walk you through some of the techniques they're using.
My favorite segments are Brad Leon's It's Alive, where he works with "living" foods like crabs but then also like kombucha or sourdough bread which have yeast or fermented cultures. I also like Carla's videos where she attempts to recreate things like Cheez-Its or Reeses Peanut Butter cups.

I'm snacking on...
I'm honestly back on the dried mango train. My blood sugar isn't super happy about it but it's not as bad as you'd think! I find it to be a great snack when my BG is just dipping a littttttle low. My problem is not eating the entire bag.
I've also been obsessed with Kale Chips but they're only at Whole Foods and are like $5. This wouldn't be a big deal if I didn't eat the bag before I even got home from Whole Foods. I like the ranch flavor.
