For the record, yours truly has always been a writing and English kind of gal. Math and me, although acquaintances throughout grades K-12, could never quite solidify a close relationship. Until now.
Apparently, it’s taken a love of healthy yummy food to reunite math and I in a well…loving, healthy relationship. The key to our happiness? Equations, of course!
1/3 cup oat bran + 1 (6-oz.) container Stonyfield French Vanilla yogurt + 1/3 cup skim milk +
2 spoonfuls unsweetened shredded coconut + 1/2 mashed naner
1/2 cup strawbs + spoonful raw almond buttah
Without equations, how would I ever concoct the perfect bowl of Overnight Oat Bran (based off of Miss Snackface’s recipe)? Hmmmm…I really need to reconsider math. He has single-handedly revolutionalized the morning oatmeal industry and made Kath oat-famous .
whole wheat tortilla
1/2 mashed avocado
glob o’ pine nut hummus
Mrs. May’s Almond Clusters
lunch plate of love
Most of all, I would probably coming crashing down on my keyboard (with key indentations on my face) in the afternoons if it wasn’t for my yogurt-mixing abilities…courtesy of Mr. Math (obv).
1 container any type of yogurt + 1 cup berries (+/- 1/4 cup granola (optional)) = perfection
The one place me and math differ? M&M’s. You can’t count them. You just need to eat them. Lots of them. Preferably of the peanut or peanut butter variety.
M&M handful (x2 or more) + 1 cup of chickety chai green tea
= a serious addiction
The best math however, involves both inanimate and animate objects. In my case, that would be food + friends. Probably one of the real tried and true equations there is out there. Sorry Einstein….e=mc^2 just doesn’t cut it.
Roat Osha Thai food + long-time friends + a night of beach volleyball = a good night
These three dishes – split between the three of us ladies – was the perfect dinner (plus a nice lil’ 2nd helping of each). It was also perfect pre-volleyball fuel for our last regular season game…which we WON! Hallelujah…we do actually have some talent!
My final math equation:
X = breakfast
Y = all other food
Z = stress
a = friends
b = a job interview
c = handfuls of peanut M&Ms
d = going to bed
(X +3Y) x 3c
3a – 1/2Z + (bd)
Take that Sir Isaac Newton.
