The Taste of Purple

Hey friends!

So, as expected, I am HOME as I write this. Yayyy! It feels great to be home, especially because I’m rocking brand newsies really warm and fuzzy pajama pants and eating nut butter with a spoon watching movies!

This morning, before I left campus, I ran 3 miles in the COLD. It was frigid and WINDY. Worst. Idea. Of my life. I thought it was a great idea, but when I reached the flat desert-like plateau (my run goes up a hill, runs on top if it, then goes back down.. and I do that twice), I was blasted with wind. And I hated cheery, warm me from earlier who woke up at 6:30 and said, “It feels like a great day to run! πŸ™‚ Life is rainbows and sunflowers!!” At one point, I was fighting so hard against it I literally almost was blown over. It was SO dramatic. When I got back and warm, I felt like I’d really accomplished something, so it was okay. And I was quickly off on a 7 hour journey home from NY to MD.

Unfortunately, on the road, there isn’t much to eat for a gluten free/lactose free college student. And, stupidly, I ran out without grabbing more than just the two oranges in my backpack. Soooo, the journey was a hungry one for me. When I got home though, I was greeted by some funny white potato-looking things..

Which my mom claimed to be sweet potatoes. I called her a liar, and she told me they were purple inside. I called her a double liar, and cut some open to stuff in the microwave. What did I find? PURPLE. (Sorry, no picture of this because I was STAAAARVING!) And when I microwaved them? THEY TURNED MORE PURPLE. Uh, hello magic food.

I ate these funny purple potatoes with a mass amount of greek yogurt and honey. It was delicious.

Aren't they great?! They made such pretty food! πŸ™‚

Then, I had broccoli with nooch and several dips of almond and cashew butter. Aaaand.. I’m just about ready for more food. I have to make up for lunch! (PS, I did have breakfast before I left my dorm.. So I’m not a completely starved college student)

Anyways, being home is AWESOME! We’re fixing my oven tomorrow, and going to the Natural History museum to look at rocks! WAHOOO! Look for a post.. Subject undetermined πŸ™‚

Also, THANKS FOR ALL THE COMMENTS GUYS! I feel so loved. It means so much to me that people actually read and enjoy reading about random things in my life. Love you guys so much!!!

How has your Saturday been? Have you ever seen purple potatoes before? Do you ever have to play “catch up” with your food accidentally?

See you soon!

  1. Purple sweet potatoes?!?! DUDE that’s freakin awesome! I’m a fiend for anything sweet potato, so I totally want to find these now. I wonder if it’d diminish my orange hue haha πŸ˜‰
    Enjoy your time at home!

  2. ahh windy runs are EPIC!! honestly it sounds silly but wind is my LEAST favorite weather to run in…I’ll take snow, cold, rain, thunderstorms, excessive heat, a nuclear explosion…all over wind lol. And purple sweet taters are the BOMB! Have a fantastic time at home!! coming home on breaks from college is the absolute best πŸ˜€

  3. Running in the cold and wind is not fun at all. But afterwards I feel so accomplished! I was surprised the first time I had a purple potato. I expected it to taste like a sweet potato but it wasn’t very sweet at all!
