京都ーKyoto

beautiful city, with a beautiful name.

i enjoyed walking from traditional history to a Starbucks and getting a green tea frappuchino, because it felt all too well placed and then walking to a subway to get back to Ichinomiya.

kanji isn’t my strongest point, so i wish i knew more to write with. wow. my eyes are so dry just thinking about the light humidity. the weird pathways that led to nowhere, and i followed them all anyway.

it would be a nostalgic experience to go back.

New Appreciation for Subways Everywhere

I stand by not counting calories. Every time I try I end up starving myself, binge eating, and then repeating the process. Worse. I binge on the good AND the bad stuff assuming you clearly define your food into said two categories. (I broadly define my food, but that’s a different topic.) Worse? According THIS wonderful video I found on NPR–but actually made by the New York Times–shows exactly what I’ve been told by my mother and my own results stand by.

Calorie count doesn’t add up.

It’s what you eat. Now how you eat it. & what should you apparently? Subway. I hate to admit it. This sandwich chain gave my stomach an upset a year ago, and I have refused to go back sense. The more I read, however, the more I think Quiznos’ is the worst for health.  Subway has gone global for a reason. We can trust Subway. We can go to Subway, look at their calorie counts, and know exactly what we’re getting. Which isn’t the same for any other food manufacturer out there.

Can you blame the manufacturer entirely? It takes 10 hours to test 5 items of food. Who has the time/resources/stamina to devote to accurately testing their food items? Instead we do what we always do. Go on Google. Do it Yourself. But has this reliance on google misled people? We can make all sorts of health misdemeanors and or adorations. I digress back to the topic.

SIMPLY! -> Watch this spectacular video on calorie counts and read the article.

Make Spring Break Healthy Again. 

Eat Subway, apparently.

Best Brownie on South Side Dublin

so I finally realized I didn’t have this up here. It was so rich and moist. I almost didn’t want to finish it. But I made it work by drizzling the delicate ice cream and fudge combination on top of it. In all other aspects, however, i should have gone for the NYC Cheesecake not picture.
