Any sorority girl knows that a staple of greek life is the paddle. From big-little reveals to 21st birthdays to tokens of friendship, paddles are the perfect way to display your greek pride and express your sisterly love.

Well… it’s that time again! Time for classes and early alarms and tests. Time for science labs and long papers and due dates. I’m certainly not ready for the summer to end, but one good thing about school starting up again is school supply shopping. Even as a little kid, I loved going to the store to buy new supplies- so many bright colors and fun patterns and pencils/crayons/markers that were still fresh and unused. I almost hated to use new supplies for fear of “ruining” them! I also enjoyed organizing my new purchases and having a locker/desk/backpack with everything in its place.

At my hometown grocery store (HEB), there is a kiosk near the meats/cheese called the Cooking Connection. It’s basically a mini kitchen (oven, stove, the whole works!) where one or two chefs work handing out samples of delicious recipes and trying to get you to buy the store brand ingredients. I’ve made it a habit of stopping by the kiosk every time I go to the store because without fail, grocery shopping makes me hungry. I usually end up buying a ton of tantalizing and junky snacks that get devoured within a day or two. But, by trying a few samples instead, I save both my wallet AND my waistline.
About three years ago, after watching Food, Inc., and having an experience with bad chicken, I gave up meat. In fact, I went full-fledge vegan. Aside from honey and the occasional fish, I didn’t touch an animal product for over a year. I eventually returned to eating meat due to health problems (low body weight, not enough protein, etc), but during my time as a vegan, I had such a fun time exploring the world of animal-free recipes, products, and blogs. **Don’t get me wrong- it is definitely possible to obtain your complete nutritional needs while following a vegan diet, but at the time it just wasn’t working for me**
