Shades Of White

My 2nd day as a soon-to-be surgeon’s wife was good but busy.  I have a gigantic quiz tomorrow and we have to score at least a 90% on it to remain in our program.  <– yikes!

No breakfast again.  I do have some bars in my cabinet but the mornings are my busiest hours and I don’t remember to eat and even if I did I wouldn’t have the time.  Instead I just really enjoy my lunch.

On today’s menu – a (2 Tbsp of) chunky peanut butter and (2 slices of) turkey bacon sandwich (Thin).


A green pear.


And a package of seaweed snacks.


I also grabbed a coffee.


A mix of regular and decaf with hazelnut creamer.  I started adding a scoop of ice to my cups – after watching a classmate do it the other day and being impressed with her genius – and it makes my coffees so much more enjoyable.  I definitely prefer my “hot” beverages luke-warm.

In the afternoon I snacked on a scoop of 1% cottage cheese with half of a Liberte coconut yogurt and a sprinkle of shredded coconut.


I realize the picture doesn’t really show any of that though; my camera doesn’t do shades of white.

<– Sidenote:  I’ve decided that my first foray into fiction is going to be a book titled 50 Shades of White, the pendulum swing from 50 Shades of Grey.  It will be 500 pages of a waspy couple having missionary-style sex and peeing with the door closed.  You’d read that, right?  😀

Other afternoon snacks included a handful of tortilla chips,


and a stolen square of Adam’s Godiva Milk Chocolate Salted Caramel Bar.


I wanted to snack after dinner too, but it’s better that I didn’t because I already ate enough today.  Sometimes nibbling helps me focus on studying but our pantry is looking ruff


Don’t worry, our dinner was better than that joke.


I had a handful of Terra Thai Basil Curry Vegetable Chips.


A pile of roasted green beans.


And 2 turkey egg cups.


{Inspired by this recipe}  We put two slices of turkey inside each of our muffin tin cups / filled the bottoms of chopped sautéed mushrooms and green onions and shredded cheese / topped each cup with an egg / then baked for 30ish minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees.

I spent the rest of the evening cramming and I’ve got to get back to it.  Tomorrow’s quiz is on the macro- and micronutrient values for the serving sizes per food group for a diabetic and renal diet.  Lots and lots of numbers to know; we can’t all lay around on the job…!
