For a 2 day school week, I’d say it was pretty dang hectic. I had to turn in a research paper on chromium and do a presentation about iodine on Tuesday, so Monday night as I was finishing everything up I was literally in tears from being so tired. (Don’t feel bad for me, it’s just the current situation- I see the light!).
Nonetheless, I was very happy to do minimal cooking on Tuesday and I even snuck in a nap once I got home from school. Here’s my eats from the day.
What does a sleep-deprived girl require on a busy day? Caffeine and chocolate, of course. No doubt, there was plenty.
Breakfast was my current obsession- a single serving oatmeal pancake will cacoa nibs, peanut butter, and jelly. I’m glad I found a way to enjoy cacoa nibs! I also had my usual coffee (3 cups this morning), 85% dark chocolate, and a sliced pear later in the morning.
Morning snacks included some almonds and an orange. Don’t you hate when you think the orange is going to be huge, but the membrane is like half an inch thick?
[insert diet pepsi here]
Lunch was Chili’s leftovers on top a bed of spinach. In the mix was rice, black beans, asparagus, and ~2 oz steak. I also threw some leftover veggies in there. This was so so so dang good. The combination of flavors was perfect and I wish I could eat it today for lunch too.
An afternoon snack before class was the last of my freezer stash of these skinny brownies. Mmm cocoa.
Here I am ESTATIC because I am going to turn in my novel of a paper 😀
After I did my presentation on iodine, I went home and took a nice long nap. I honestly think I could have slept until the morning, but we had our church Thanksgiving dinner to attend.
Dinner was a delicious mix of foods brought by various people in our church- cranberry sauce, broccoli casserole (my fav!), peas, mac n’ cheese, deviled egg, green beans, and a cranberry apple salad. Most everything was wonderful and fully enjoyed. I went back for more green beans!
Dessert happened. 4 slices of my favorite candy on the planet plus some almond milk.
I’m so excited to spend some time with my family over the next couple days, but I am almost just as excited to sleep in (every day).
What food do you crave when sleep deprived?
