Breakfast In A Jar And Dinner On The Lam

Adding in exercise is making blogging very tricky this week.  When you leave for the gym at 9pm, all you want to do when you get home is sleep.  Especially if you have to run errands at Target on your way home from the gym.  Especially if you were too busy all evening to eat dinner.

I started my day with packet of Spiru-Tein S’mores protein powder shaken with 1 cup of Naked Vanilla Oat Milk.


I was pretty amazed that the powder was vegan (minus honey which I’m not worrying about for the Vegan 20 Day Challenge).  It wasn’t the best tasting thing I’ve ever had, but I was impressed with how thick it got.  I shook it up in a recycled jar, making this a very easy to-go breakfast.

I’m having a good week at the hospital; it’s starting to feel like I’m hitting my stride.  If there is one thing I’ve learned so far from this rotation it’s this – I knew absolutely nothing about pediatric nutrition.

Lunch was a pear.


A yummy sandwich of 5 grain tempeh on a Sandwich Thin with yellow mustard and Smart Balance Light.


And the other half of my rice milk chocolate bar.


When Adam got home this afternoon he helped me crack open this guy…


I may have had to eat over my work, but I still had a great afternoon snack.


Adam and I shared the Thai young coconut in smoothie form.


With frozen banana, peach, and blueberries too.


And fancy bread with Smart Balance Light on the side.


I’m glad I had a big snack, because journaling took so long that I never had time to make dinner.

I did make it to the gym though.  30 minutes on the elliptical at level 6 random.  Certainly not the most intense workout ever, but a far cry better than what I wanted to do (sit on the couch).

And now all I want to do is go to bed!
