It’s all about change

Wow, I just realized how late it is! But I’m awake so I’m going to write this post anyway. I graduated! Can you believe it? I almost can.


I don’t have pictures from actual graduation yet, but these are some of my favorite so far.

I’m no longer a high school student. I’m officially a college freshman. This is a big change. And since my blog is called “healthy in high school” it’s time to change it too, right? I have created a brand new site, and I’m so excited for it. I love the look, and I can’t wait to be more involved with it in the future. Head on over there, and subscribe by going to the “side bar” page and scrolling down.

All of my content from this site is now over there. *fingers crossed everything worked with that*

So good bye high school and Healthy in High School…hello college and Blue-eyed Pre-med.

Thank you all for following these sporadic posts. I hope to get more consistent. Hopefully I will have more to write about once I get to college.

Churro Waffles

Now how can you not make those??? I planned on making these yesterday morning with my friend, but we ended up making her favorite: French toast. I decided to share this recipe anyway and try it later. (I found this recipe on the Chica Choclatina blog.)

Churro Waffles
Those delightful, buttery sticks of goodness. Those yummy, fluffy cakes of goodness. Put them together and what have you got? Magic.
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1½ cups warm milk
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 shakes of cinnamon
  • For the churro topping-
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • ¼ cup to ½ cup of cinnamon (depending upon how much you love cinnamon!)
  • ½ cup of melted butter
  1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside. Also mix your churro topping and set it aside. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Add the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Fold in three shakes of cinnamon and beat until blended
  3. Melt your ½ cup of butter used to pour over waffles. Next generously spray your waffle iron with no stick cooking spray. Fill your preheated waffle iron as usual. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Once fully cooked immediately pour melted butter on each side of the waffle and then dip each buttered side into your cinnamon/sugar churro mixture.
  4. Devour as soon as you make each waffle.
  5. Oh and if you know me, I have a huge sweet tooth! So you can also drizzle your waffles with maple syrup. Either way tastes amazing.
  6. Enjoy:)


I do plan on making these ASAP:)

We just arrived in Virginia. I finished unpacking and just getting settled in our hotel room. Pizza is in the oven and TV on. I am convinced that it is the only way to spend the first night in your hotel room. It is really hot here, close to 90 degrees, but our room is very comfortable:)

I have still been doing the yoga challenge. I thought that I would give you a little update! I have missed a few days so far, but I made them up as quickly as I could. I am a little behind right now, but I plan on catching up soon. I also plan on doing yoga during vacation as well!

I have loved the videos that they have sent me. You can choose between beginner and advanced, and they are very clear that the beginner level does not mean ‘easier’. 🙂 And they are right! The moves stretch me and make me really work, which feels great! Again, allow me to say how much I love yoga. I highly recommend My Yoga Works. To have full access to the site, you have to pay, but there are certain videos that are free. Head on over there and check it out.

So there is a little update on things. Hope you have a great Thursday evening.

Peach Easter Jello

Good morning!

Like I said in another post, my traditional Easter dish is the Jello. This year I chose to make a peaches and cream Jello in a Bundt pan. I have kind of a funny story about it…but that comes at the end. I found this recipe at the Jello Mold Mistress of Brooklyn. I’ll put it into my own words here:)


2 (3 ounce) packages of peach flavored gelatin
3 1/2 cups boiling water
1 1/4 cups cold water
3/4 cup cold water
2 cups peaches, sliced and pealed, or drained canned peaches
2 tablespoons (2 envelopes) of unflavored gelatin powder
1 1/2 cups (14 ounce can) sweetened condensed milk

What to do

unnamed (13)Empty the packages of peach Jello into a bowl. Pour in 2 cups boiling water and stir until all the powder is dissolved. Stir in 3/4 cups of cold water. Put that bowl into the fridge until thickened but not fully set. Make sure that you drain the peaches well if you use canned peaches. Place slices of peach in the bottom of the Bundt pan. Make sure to keep some of them for later. Take the peach jello out of the fridge and carefully pour/spoon it over the peaches. Refrigerate that until set but not completely.


unnamed (12)While that is setting, sprinkle the unflavored gelatin over top of 1/2 cup of cold water. Let the gelatin soak up the water. Once it is soaked up, pour 1 1/2 cups boiling water over top. Stir until dissolved. Pour in the sweetened condensed milk until it is smooth. It will take a few moments before the mixture isn’t gooey. Keep stirring! Cut up the rest of the peaches and stir them into the condensed milk bowl. Refrigerate it until thickened.


So far so good...

So far so good…

When the peach Jello is ready, carefully pour the condensed milk mixture over top. Put the whole thing in the fridge until completely set. Unmold it when set and enjoy!





I did it overnight and served it in the afternoon. Here is where the funny story comes in:) When I was ready to unmold it, we set it in hot water for about a minute. It came out of the pan easily…too easily. The hot water melted the inside! The creamy layer started to separate from the peach part and it started to slide off of the plate. We put it back in the fridge. When we took it out, it still slid. I quickly got a picture, and we dumped it into a bowl.

Sliding off of the plate

Sliding off of the plate



All of us enjoyed it, but next time I won’t keep it in the water for so long. Also, I will make the water warm…not hot:)

30 Day Workout Challenge

Happy Monday all:)

This morning for breakfast, I had eggs with sausage and strawberries with milk. If you have never put strawberries in a bowl of milk, go try it. It could be a dessert if you wanted to! Or breakfast. Breakfast works too:) That breakfast kept me full until lunch. I was very surprised. Usually I get hungry mid-morning. Maybe it was a one time thing, but I am doing the same thing tomorrow!

My mom found a new yogurt when she was out grocery shopping this weekend. If you know me, then you know that I love yogurt! It is my go to snack. This one is from Chobani. It is chocolate hazelnut flavored. YUM. I love it!

Sorry for the phone doesn't take very good pics:)

Sorry for the blur…my phone doesn’t take very good pics:)


I wanted to find a fun sort of workout to do. I don’t want to keep doing the same thing over and over and eventually getting bored with it. So I pinterested (new verb guys!) ‘fun workouts’. I found a neat 30 day challenge from Shanti Landon’s Life Made Full blog. I am definitely a level one! Even level one looks challenging! But I am going to give it my  best shot. I’m not sure if I am able to copy  the challenge here legally so this is the direct link to her post. Go check it out!

Do any of you know if it is legal to copy paste something from another blog (not a picture) without their permission, as long as I provide a link? I know I can link to another blog with no permission.


Questions: What is your favorite snack food? What breakfast do you eat to keep you full until lunch?
