My friend and I finished our last exams of our undergrad degrees and we celebrated with wine and vegetables. The picture above was our dinner!

We made hummus from scratch and it was even tastier than the ones sold at the store. This is also a more environmentally-friendly and economical alternative to the store-bought hummus, considering all the p...

It's Sunday, not quite sunny but bright enough for the light to shine into my bedroom and wake me up a little bit sooner than I'd like to. I scrubbed my eyes and was out of bed by 7:30am.

2. No Oreos.

3. No snacks unless I've worked for them.*

* bake/make them myself = I put in my time and effort

* one unhealthy snack per groc...
