AKA the 1st day of Hanukkah. Why are there 4 different ways to spell that?
Well, since I work at a (technically) Jewish hospital, I know more than I ever thought I would about the kosher ways of the world. So, my blog title is in celebration of the festival of lights! Good thing my lunch didn’t have meat and dairy on the same plate…oh wait, I don’t eat meat OR dairy, so looks like I’m perma-kosher by default.
I had to DRAG myself out of bed this morning. My alarm went off at 5 and I couldn’t even believe it. I seriously JUST went to bed. A huge ugh for work day #3 in a row. An even HUGER ugh for the weather being freezing. I’m over snow.
Now that’s a breakfast sando done right!
Since it was Monday, the subway was actually running correctly (when I work weekend I have to add an extra 30 mins for transit alone). Today, though, the express trains were as zippy as ever, thus cutting my commuting time in half, allowing me to arrive at Bruno’s with enough time to grab a coffee. Shockingly, I didn’t drink it until almost 10. First, I drank 2 liters of water (hooray for being healthy). I had my odwalla Berries GoMega bar around noon since I knew I wasn’t going to get to go on my lunch break until pretty late in the afternoon.
Sure enough, 2;30 rolled around and I finally got a free moment to step off the unit to grub. After my sando, I snacked on edamame that I threw in my bag before I left in the morning (a brilliant last minute call if I do say so myself).
Before I headed back to work, I got coffee #2 to give me the BEYOND necessary lift to make it through the rest of my shift.
I was super excited to try these babies. Since I love all “Food for Life” and “Ezekiel” products, I knew I would enjoy this, but (as usual) I completely underestimated the degree of awesome-ness.
O-M-G. Ezek 1:9 sprouted grain english muffins are truly in their own category of heavenly delicious foods.
AND…mustard, grape tomatoes, and a GN veggie burger (I’m still willing to test out other burgers, but these are SO good, it’s hard to stray).
They practically crumble in your mouth since they are fresh and not frozen. They come individually packaged, so I’m sure other brands are way cheaper. Def something to look into.
I baked these a week ago and totes forgot about them – oops! With only 2 slabs left post snacking, I decided I better make something with them stat.
The Ezek muffins were OUTTA control yummy, so I had to have another…these are DEF a new obsession. On this one I put Chobani greek yog, soy bacon, and the last 2 tofu slabs.
It tastes even BETTER than it looks 🙂
I finished the night off with a glass of tea and 5 glasses of water. No, that’s no typo, I had 5 glasses of H2O.
