Why Eggs Are The New Kale

And I'm not mad about it.

Why Eggs Are The New Kale

Kale used to be the "it" food—not only could you make almost anything out of it, kale is also hella good for you. It's green, so its packed with antioxidants and other good things as well as being rich in fiber. It also has tons of vitamins, like Vitamin C, A, K, and B6. Kale is good in salads, as chips, sautéed, and massaged. Even Beyonce loves kale.

But kale should watch its back. Avocado stole the spotlight for awhile (with good reason), but it's clear that the new hip way to eat anything is to put an egg on it.

Not only are eggs delicious, they are also arguably just as healthy as the former food king and green leaf, kale. Eggs are high in protein and Vitamin D, B2, B6, and B12, and provide selenium. Eggs yolks have gotten a bad rap for their cholesterol, but as long as you stick to one egg a day, you are in the clear.

Eggs are are all over foodies Instagram's and there is even a yolk porn hashtag.

Eggs are very versatile—they can be eaten with any meal, at any time of day.

Eggs can be for breakfast.

Eggs can go on toast.

They can go on noodles.

Or soup.

Put an egg on a pizza, trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Up your Taco Tuesday game with brunch style tacos with eggs.

You can put an egg on top of almost any vegetable and make it great.

You can even put an egg on top of kale.

You really can't go wrong. So head out to your local farmers market or food co-op, get yourself a dozen eggs, and get crackin'.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
