There are 3 things I will never understand in this world:

1. Why people bring bikes on the T

2. Why Say Yes to the Dress makes me cry (legit every time)

3. Why people still eat bagels and Frosted Flakes for breakfast.

Less carbs, more protein. End of story. Now this list is nothing revolutionary, but sometimes it’s just good to have a list of easy foods to refer to every now and again. And yes.. I know that some of these breakfasts have some carbs; but hey… it’s better than bagels and Frosted Flakes. Happy Friday!
