I hate money. I began to delve deeper into the financial aspect of nutrition school. The Natural Chef training costs about $10,000. There are no scholarships offered, no sort of financial aid - just 1 payment plan, in which you have to pay them $2000 a month. Even the admissions woman I spoke with today admitted that is "pretty much impossible." I've been looking for scholarships for over a year, and haven't found/gotten anything. My high from being accepted has now turned in to a horrible depression over the fact I might not even get to GO if I don't find about $4,000, and QUICK.

Apparently, the only way I could get school paid for is if I were unemployed. The government could pay for it ALL. I figured it out with my dad, and I would get way more money by NOT WORKING than by working my butt off like I have been. This concept is sooo BIZARRE to me...that it might be more fruitful for me to be unemployed. WHAT THE HECK.

So I'm checking out my options...but uh...if anyone has a few extra thousand dollars they wanna throw my way, go for it! ;-)

  • 2 pumpkin pancakes - approx 2 cups almond/flax flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 cup-ish canned pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, 1 tbsp agave nectar, and water added until proper pancake-y consistency
  • 2 Applegate Farms breakfast sausage links
  • leftover chili from a few nights ago
  • big spinach salad with grapes, dried figs, cashews, and cranberry balsamic vinaigrette
  • some Jimmy Johns "skinny" potato chips (yeah, not the all....haha I caved)
  • 2 Kashi granola bars
  • 1 organic chicken mild Italian sausage link, sauteed peppers and eggplant, 1/4 cup couscous
  • 1 healthy peanut butter cup, made by my lil sister - in a little muffin tin, put some finely shredded coconut, then organic peanut butter with a bit of agave mixed in, then some of that chocolate soy pudding, and put in freezer - delicious!!!
