The Very Hungry Teacher

After a particularly exhausting workout this morning, I turned into the Very Hungry Caterpillar Pregnant Teacher.

First, I drank one spinach protein shake.

1 scoop protein powder, 1 cup coconut milk, 3 handfuls of spinach, 12 ice cubes

Then, I had two of my favorite things.

Basically grape nuts

More coconut milk

For snack, I ate my way through three things: two apples and half of a toasted cinnamon bagel.

When lunchtime rolled around, I had a superb four item lunch.

toasted bagel + spinach + cream cheese + green onions

My fifth meal was a very green popsicle.

Punky was jealous.

For meal number six, I ate my way through some protein packed pepperjack mac ‘n cheese!


  • ½ box pasta shells
  • ½ block silken tofu
  • 1 tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 3 cups spinach
  • salt and pepper

Boil the pasta. In the meantime, blend the tofu, mustard, salt, and pepper. When the pasta is finished, drain, return to pan, and add tofu mixture. Then stir in the cheese and spinach.

In the 3rd grade world…

I had my class write poems about rain today. It was rainy, and you know the old adage: April showers bring May flowers!

They wrote their poetry on a picture of an umbrella, and I hung them from the ceiling.

Rain makes me sad

It reminds me of Jr.

He was mostly in a ball

I would throw him up as a ball

I miss him

  1. The mac ‘n’ cheese looks so good! spinach sounds like it would be a great item to add to it.

    your stories about your 3rd graders always crack me up 🙂

  2. Cute,cute,cute! I love reading the 3rd graders thoughts. Here is one from my 1st graders: “Does chocolate milk come from brown cows? Hehe. For the past week they all are trying to get me to tell them if the Easter bunny is real!
