When I was in Elementary school, my grandfather would pick me and my brother up from school every day. On days when he could tell we needed a pick-me-up, or he was just feeling some sweets, my grandfather would take us to Pat’s Dream Cream to get a scoop of our favorite ice cream flavor: blue moon. Not to be confused with the beer, blue moon ice cream is the perfect combination of fruity, sweet, sour, and creamy. Some say it tastes like an ice cream version of fruit loops, but to me, it just tastes like heaven.

It was finally January—the first month of the year, the first month of a new semester, and the first month for new beginnings. Many people around the world kick off the month of January with good intentions, the most popular being the effort to stay healthy. I made that New Years resolution myself this year. After coming home from college for winter break, eating my mother’s delicious meals that ranged from sizzling salmon to lean meats accompanied by lush, colorful vegetables, I realized just how terrible my college diet had become. I exercised almost every day and hardly ate any processed foods at home and by the end of my three-week stint, I felt more energized and lively than I had in weeks.
