Brunch- Broccoli w/ cheese
Snack- Fun size candy bar, 3 unsalted crackers
Dinner- Chili w/ unsalted crackers, crispy baked potato
Desert- Fun size candy bar
Drinks- 3 and a half bottles of water
Reflection: I could have done better, but I wasn’t feeling too well today and wasn’t going anywhere so I didn’t feel the need to eat too much.
Breakfast- Banana w/ bottle water
Lunch- 1 slice of cheese pizza, 1/2 cup salad and 6 baby carrots
Dinner- Salad, corn on the cob, baked potato with cheese
Reflection: I went to the beach before breakfast and forgot the yogurt I packed, so all I could munch on was the banana. I probably should have included more protein then I did. It was a good day though. Besides my bad posture. I need to work on that.
Watermelon Frozen Yogurt Popsicles
makes about 6 pops (This recipe will yield about 2 cups of mix. If you need more just up the quantities in the same proportions)
- These popsicles are a great alternative to store bought sugar filled pops.
- As always, use your own taste buds to determine how sweet you want to make your watermelon pops.
- 1 1/2 cups Watermelon (seedless or remove seeds)
- 3/4 cup fat free Thick Greek Yogurt
- Sweetener: Stevia, Honey, Agave, Maple or your favorite natural sweetener to taste
Purée watermelon in blender or food processor. Strain with a fine mesh sieve into a bowl. Add strained watermelon juice back into the blender. Add yogurt. Blend well. Add sweetener to taste.

Trying these today :)
4-Ingredient Banana Oat Bars (With Options!)
Makes one 9x9-inch pan. Adapted from Ginger at Friesen Cold.
2 large, very ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 cup pitted, chopped dried dates
1/4 cup chopped nuts — such as walnuts, hazelnuts or pecans
Grated nutmeg or cinnamon (optional)
Heat the oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9x9-inch square baking dish with olive oil or butter.
Peel the bananas and mash their flesh in a medium mixing bowl. Mash very thoroughly until no large chunks remain; the bananas should be essentially liquid. (You will have between 1 cup and 1 1/4 cup.) Stir in the vanilla, if using. Add the oats and stir them in. Stir in the salt, dates, and nuts.
Pat the thick mixture evenly into the baking pan. If desired, sprinkle the top lightly with nutmeg or cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes or unti the edges just begin to crisp up.
Place the baking pan on a rack to cool. When the pan is mostly cool, cut into bars and enjoy with a glass of milk or tea.
Breakfast- 1 packet of plain instant oatmeal with raisins and almonds, 3 turkey sausage links
Lunch- Small side salad (about a cup and a half of greens, 2 cherry tomatoes and some parm), a strawberry smoothie, a few fries
Snack- Fiber One bar, oats and chocolate
Dinner- Baked Chicken, stuffing, black eyed peas, some mac-and-cheese
Dessert- One chocolate covered cherry
Reflection: Eh. I had a lot of errands to run today, and we went out for lunch. I didn’t do so well today, mainly because he have absolutely no food in the house. I need to run on another grocery haul.
Lunch one day
Mixed Bell Peppers
Baked Potato Chips
Low Sodium V8 (not pictured)
Dessert one night
Two small chunks of Angel Food Cake
Some fresh pineapple and strawberries
Alright, well, I’ve been eating absolutely terrible the past few weeks. Take-out, junk foods, sodas, and not in moderation, mind you. And honestly, I feel horrible when I eat like that. I’m used to eating moderately healthy foods, but I’ve been slacking.
Today was a little better, but went a little downhill around lunch. So, I made a compromise with myself.
If I actually put forth some effort in managing my meals properly, again, then I’ll finally go buy those books I’ve been wanting. I know it’s not right to bride yourself, but I think it’s the motivation I need, considering I’m an avid reader. xD
So starting tomorrow, I’ll begin posting my intakes again along with a few pics from previous meals. <3
So, I really didn’t eat too well today because mainly I went out to a birthday party and it went a littel downhill from there. So I thought if I wrote it all out then it’d help with tomorrow. OTL

Alright, first post. Well, I suppose to start out I should introduce the blog.
Welcome to The Blooming’s Voracity!
I don’t really know who to describe the exact purpose of the blog, beside that of it being one for food (mostly healthy ones) and occasionally fitness or other challenges/troubles I come across.
Um, my name is Aro, or you can call me Deviel (dee-vee-el). Either is fine!
And as a side note, this was a previous food blog, so ignore all the pictures after this post. xD
