As we get closer to the end of the semester, this is the time when I get a serious urge to snack at night. When I snack, it could be possibly anything from hot Cheetos to a banana with peanut butter. Yum!. However, these snacks aren't the healthiest options, so I am going to list a few snacks that can fulfill your cravings and give you more energy!

1. Apples with peanut butter /plain apples

- lots of fiber

- peanut butter is low in saturated fats

- protein

2. Mixed nuts

- contains protein and healthy fats

- has omega 3 fatty acids

- Remember! Don't consume more than a quarter cup serving- they're high in calories!

3. Popcorn

- only 100 calories

- contains fiber

- whole grain

4. Yogurt

- high in protein

- low in sugars

- helps you burn body fat

5. Almond milk

- calcium

- magnesium for sleep regulation

- a good substitute for dairy products

- no added sugars

Now, here are some snacks you should surely avoid!

1. Pizza

- high-acid food

- prone to heartburn

2. Sugary cereal

-full of carbs

- refined sugars

3. Spicy snacks

- prone to heartburn

- endorphin rush (difficult to sleep)

4. Orange juice

- very acidic

- high in added sugars

5. Chocolate

- caffeine

- increase blood flow

Now go out there and get your snacking habits right!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
