Yesterday was one of those days that had me so thankful to have food in the fridge, ready to be inhaled. I have a tough exam tonight that I’m not feeling particularly ready for, so the last couple days have been a bit of a blur of studying/whimpering in fear. My low point was probably last night, when I texted a selfie of myself ugly-crying to my mom so that she would shower me in pity. Grown up behaviour.
So needless to say, food was not exactly at the forefront of my mind yesterday. But luckily, I had some stuff prepared from the weekend which made all of my meals really quick and pretty darn tasty. Or at least, a whole lot better than the alternative of grazing on crackers or something all day.
breakfast brownie // fruit // milk
This weekend I tried my hand at creating a wholesome, date-sweetened “brownie” recipe. It’s not QUITE how I want it to be but I’m determined to nail it so I’ll be sure to share if/when I do! In the meantime, I’ve been having noooo trouble polishing off the first trial.
carrots // hummus
greek pasta salad
This beloved recipe with brown rice pasta that I made on Sunday. The picture is a bit deceiving because I had at least 5 or 6 other bites straight from the tupperware before deciding to transfer it to a bowl. Sometimes I just need a little warm-up.
Plus quite a few more pieces that escaped picture-taking. I’m noticing a trend here.
banana oatmeal muffin with Sunbutter
The usual afternoon muffin from my freezer-hoarding stash. This came to class with me and was delicious.
roasted veggies + egg // cheddar // avocado // jam sandwich
I had a big batch of roasted veggies in the fridge, so this meal came together in the time it took to fry an egg. Also, that sandwich combo – sweet, salty and so good! I also had an apple before bed.
Well I better go… a few friends are coming over for a study party. Hopefully the end result isn’t group crying selfies. Yikes.
But on a more positive note, the struggle for this one is going to make being done feel SO euphoric! And while I’m being pretty dramatic about the whole ordeal, I’m keeping in mind this post and reminding myself that at the end of the day, the worst case scenario is a not-so-stellar mark, which really isn’t all that bad in the grand scheme of things.
Hope you’re having a great week so far!
