A midday recharge

I’ve had great fun setting up Endorphin Stew over the Christmas break; now is the time to offer out a billion thanks to everyone for the well wishes on my latest venture.  However, the time has almost arrived to get down to the college essentials again; studying and eating right outside of the house.

My primary focus for the next while is to crack the most affordable combination of nutritious grab-and-go meals for students and workers. Since eating out and about in college has burned holes in my pockets last semester, I’ve assured myself that I’ll be taking my meal prep more seriously this time around.

I’ll make sure to keep you up to date with it all once I get into it. For now, here’s the best start I have to the working year! 🙂
