The day after my birthday I had to work, so it was back to reality. The C pod was super mega patient overload (to quote black rob, it was “like whoa”). Each patient was so heavy, there should have been 5 more nurses at least, but of course there were just two of us left to hold down the fort. The day started off with a nice starbucks soy misto, but since I was running around like a mad woman all morning, my stomach was growling by 9 and eating itself by 10. Thank the lord I had my vegan oatmeal raisin cookie from the night before (my BDAY cookie!!). It was awesome! Dense (but not in a heavy way), crumbly, oaty, so good. I may have to find out the recipe.
I didn’t get away for a lunch break until way late in the afternoon, so it’s a good thing I had the cookie to hold me over. I made a sando with california style A street bread (see pic below).
The picture of the sandwich is nowhere to be found. My camera is dying. Now in addition to crappy pictures, they are spontaneously deleting, apparently. Anyways, for the record, the sando had smart deli “turkey” with hummus, mustard and lettuce. I also had a baggie full of dried edamame and raisins (can’t beat salty and sweet).
I hit up the gym after work, but only for a mini run. I was done after 30 minutes. I was really in the mood for comfort food. The weather got COLD all of a sudden, and I seriously wanted something warm and hearty. (Shockingly) I had the self control and presence of mind to come up with a healthier alternative. I settled on “Boca” chik’n nuggets with lots and lots of dip (I love mixing BBQ sauce with honey mustard).
I don’t know why they consider one serving 3-4 nuggets. I don’t even know what that MEANS? How do you eat 3-4? How do you not eat all of them? Confusing.
Wow, my camera is barely hanging on…
