Even with the big tax deadline behind me, my schedule is crazy hectic. What’s up with that??? Wednesday for instance is a VERY busy day for me because I go straight from the office to the university for the class I teach. This requires ample food-planning on Tuesday nights because I have to pack 6 meals. 6 meals?!? Yes 6. Take today for instance, here’s what I packed last night for the day ahead:
- B#1: Scrambled eggs & roasted broccoli
- B#2: Overnight oats + chopped strawberries + blueberries
- Lunch: Big ole Salad + Jennie O’ Turkey Sausage
- Snack: Granny smith apple
- Dinner: Chicken & hummus wrap + cucumber salad
- Snack: 1/2 of an 18 Rabbits granola bar
I like to travel with food apparently 🙂
One thing I’ve been craving the past few weeks is getting back to my normal foods routine!
You know what that means:
EGGS for breakfast #1!
Last night, I cooked up a batch of my scrambled eggs:
I also roasted up some broccoli which I enjoyed at 8am at my desk with a dollop o’ heaven Ketchup:
Of course, this was followed up 2 hours later by none other than my overnight oats for B#2:
My lunch salad consisted of romaine lettuce, 1/2 a large cucumber, 1 baby roma tomato, some red onion, banana pepper and Ken’s steakhouse Lite Italian Romano dressing:
I also had a Jennie O’ turkey sausage on the side…
Is it just me, or does that sausage look really sad?! … A sausage with no bun is like a bird with no wings eggs with no ketchup! Luckily I had a monster Italian sausage sandwich over the weekend 😀
After the 2PM doldrums pass, it’s time for a snack! My usual afternoon snack is a granny smith apple:
Usually my snacks go unpictured. But today, I’m snapping everything that goes into my mouth 🙂 Uh oh.
Fun fact about me and apples: I REFUSE to buy an apple unless the stem is still attached. An apple sans stem is a clear indicator that a worm has crawled inside…. I’m pretty sure my sister told me that as a child, and it has stuck with me through the years. I may look funny in the produce aisle as I pick up one apple after another to find one that still has the stem attached, but guess who WON’T be looking funny when they bite into a worm? It won’t be me, that’s for darn sure! 😉
For dinner, I packed some cucumber salad:
And also a La Tortilla low-carb wrap consisting of 2 ounces grilled chicken, onion, and 1 tbsp Trader Joe’s original hummus:
Come to think of it, I probably should have avoided so many onions right before class… Oh well, they don’t call me the Onion Lady for nothin’.
Last my not least, I packed 1/2 of an 18 Rabbits granola bar (thanks Dorry!) for my late-night snack:
Whew! That’s a lot of food!
Happy Eating and Happy Hump Day!
