These eats are from a “manic Monday.” Boy was I glad that I food prepped on Sunday! Monday’s typically mean I’m on campus from 9 am – 7:45 pm, so having food ready and easily accessible is must.
Breakfast was a scrambled egg, a piece of baked pumpkin oatmeal, a dollop of sunflower butter, and two cups of black coffee. I toasted the baked oatmeal as opposed to microwaving it, so the top was nice and crispy.
In the morning I had a butchered orange.
Lunch at the desk was a simple salad of spinach, chopped peppers, and Annie’s honey mustard plus a bowl of lentil stew which was leftover from dinner the previous night. I love skin-on potatoes and celery in soup!
Snacks included four of these chocolate peanut butter brownie bites. I ran out dates, so these were made with half raisins/half dates.
Dinner was waiting at home for me in the crockpot. I think it should be called a “magic pot”, because it’s just too unbelievable how I can be at school all day and come home to this delicious vegetarian lasagna. This is a recipe from I Heart Vegetables, and it’s probably my favorite magic pot recipe ever.
My cramps were super bad, but at the same time I was craving something sweet. Dark chocolate + vanilla almond milk to the rescue. I have THIS article to back up my decisions. 😉
I slept like a rock after this snack. Not a bad way to start the week!
Do you have a cramp food cure? If not, try chocolate!
How do you get through long days?
