AP Results! + What Kat Ate #13: The Cake & Ice Cream Edition!

Hey my Lil’ Cuties! πŸ˜‰

Thanks for all of your comments on my Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars. They are definitely one of my favorites to make and take to parties if I don’t have the time to make something from scratch. And they are a hit wherever I go! πŸ™‚

Time for another What Kat Ate! Thanks, Jenn, for hosting this party! It is always so much fun! ❀


One of my Chocolate Protein Cakes frosted with homemade almond butter and sprinkled with cacao nibs, all alongside some banana softserve. Hehe. Who says you can’t have cake and ice cream for breakfast? πŸ˜‰


A fillet of tilapia topped with seasoned salt alongside a juicy peach and a side ofΒ spinach with smart balance lite buttery spread.


A handful of each almonds and soynuts.


A bowl of vegetarian chili and a pear. (Pears have been one of my favorites since I was a baby!)


Yesterday morning I received a letter from the AP testing center with the results of my AP Physics and AP Literature tests. And you know what? I PASSED!!!! BOTH of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ I am so excited right now. (I actually got the exact scores I was expecting to get on both of them; after I took them, I got a feeling of the scores I would get. It was kind of weird, but I guess that confirms how I felt. I knew I had put in the time and effort to learn and study for these exams, and I went forward and did my best.) I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father. He has always been there for me. He has never given up on me. He knows my potential and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Sometimes hardships arise, but I know He will be there for me and support me through them and give me strength to bear them. I know it is because of him that I was able to remember the things I learned during my preparation for these tests. I know He lives. I know He knows my by name. I know He loves me and that He wants me to become like him. He knows all of the rules (and exceptions ;)) of the English language and I knew I could turn to Him if I ever needed help with them. He is the Great Scientist. I am so grateful for the understanding He has given me of physics. He knows it all like the back of his hand, and I am grateful for everything He has done for me.


Would you ever have cake and ice cream for breakfast? I did it as a little celebration for passing my AP tests, and I know I will be doing it again soon.

Have there been certain foods that you’ve loved since childhood? One of those foods for me is pears. I have ALWAYS adored it. And hummus – hummus is another one that I’ve loved since I lived in Turkey at the age of 3. πŸ™‚

Did you take an AP test? SAT or ACT? A big final exam/test for certification in something you’re going into? I just took two AP tests this past May and just heard about my results yesterday. Another test that will be coming up soon (hopefully) with be my driver’s test. πŸ™‚

  1. YAY YAY YAY!!! Congrats on the AP scores, you should be so proud girl!! πŸ˜€
    All of your eats look so delicious and nutritious too– lovin the pile of almonds and soynuts mmm πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Alexandra. πŸ™‚ I am really proud because I know that Lord was with me. It was because of Him that I’ve been able to come so far and learn so much. My thanks are to Him, and to all my friends who have supported me along the way (including you). πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Angie! πŸ™‚ They are actually not nuts at all. They’re dry roasted edamame beans, which are really low in fat. The kind I get has 13 grams of protein, 10 grams of fiber, and 4 grams of fat. I love pairing them with almonds for a well rounded snack — but they are great on their own, too. πŸ™‚

  2. How exciting! Congrats on passing, that’s awesome! I didn’t end up taking my AP tests in high school because I just wasn’t confident enough.
    One test that freaked me out was a math test I had to take to get into a certain class last year. Math has never been a good subject for me but I studied and studied and testing into calculus (I didn’t even need to test that high).

    1. Thanks so much, Katie! You are sweeter than sugar. πŸ™‚ Math has been one of those subjects that comes to me easily. I actually see a lot of things in life as formulas. Essays, recipes, exercise, money, driving, etc. I see it all with an algebra kind of perspective. Haha, I know — I’m weird, but I’ve loved numbers since I was a little girl. πŸ™‚ Congrats on testing into calculus! All of your hard work paid off. πŸ˜‰

  3. Way to go on your APs! That is amazing. I still have nightmares from my Latin 5 AP exam lol and that was like years and years ago because I took it as a sophmore in high school – bad decision. Anyways dessert for breakfast – YESSSSSSS! I LOVE IT!

  4. CONGRATS ON PASSING YOUR AP’s!!! I remember that was my biggest relief come the end of senior year.

    If eating ice cream and cake is wrong, then I don’t want to be right πŸ˜‰

  5. Great job! I got my AP results too. So excited I passed the Calc test!!!!! Now I just need to decide whether it would be in my best interest to take the credit or to take the class over for review. Hm… Choices. Choices.

    I’ve loved carrots and bananas since I was younger. Also strawberries. I love strawberries. What else? Oh. I have also always liked sweet potatoes. Of course, I ate them with copius amount of brown sugar and butter when I was younger.
