Anyway, back to the business at hand. After the muffins disappeared so soon after they were made, I kind of lost some of my drive to cook. I've been spending more energy on breakfast and lunch! Let me explain.
I'm currently rotating at a hospital in the Bronx, which is an hour away from my apartment by train. Having been used to waking up, eating a leisurely breakfast at my own kitchen table and then coming into work, I had to edit my routine quite a bit. I decided it would be best to simply pack breakfast AND lunch since most of my morning is spent reading and I enjoy eating while I read. So...here are two superstar breakfast/lunches I packed and carted off to the Bronx.
Breakfast was a few things had at home before the commute and finished off with this jar of just under 1 cup of cottage cheese with a couple tsp Sugar Free Maple Syrup and a big heaping tsp of chia seeds (about 200 cals). These guys plumped up quite a bit and everyone at work was asking me what they were!
That night (Friday), Boyfriend and I went to a show at a place that didn't serve food. The show started at 8 and since it took us an hour to get there, he made me a TINY snack (mine probably came out to 100 cals-a Finn Crisp with 1 slice of Buffalo Chicken deli meat and 1 roasted red pepper + 1 plum) and had double that himself. Our dinner essentially came out to 1.5 drinks each (we split the last beer!).
Unfortunately we were too busy stuffing our faces for me to photograph this meal until we were halfway done but let me describe it to you.
The savory course was something called a Bow Wow Wow. MY HALF featured 1/4 of a Belgian waffle topped with a scrambled egg patty with American Cheese, topped with a hashbrown, topped with another 1/4 Belgian waffle. Bacon on the side for Boyfriend. Honestly, I didn't think it was that good and wound up eating only 1/8 of a single piece of waffle, 1/2 of the omelet and a little more than 1/2 of the hashbrown. I had a good big handful of the greasy greasy fries too.
The sweet course (my draft) was a stack of 3 HUGE pancakes filled with chocolate chips and banana slices. I drowned my half of these things with maple syrup and resolved to eat the whoooollleeee half.
It only felt good for about 2 minutes. Then it felt very bad.
For the first time since probably college, I went back to bed after brunch. We walked back from the diner (0.5 miles) and I could just barely breathe!
After a short sojourn, I headed off to hot yoga where I sweated chocolate and maple syrup and came home to have sushi with my parents and Boyfriend.
For the 4 of us we got 2 sashimi deluxe platters (one is seen on the right) and 2 special rolls (left)
A beer is seen on the top left. Had one of those too.
We wound up having a whole extra sashimi for leftovers for tomorrow because my dad wasn't in a hungry mood.
Yes, I know, leftover sashimi? Well I guess we're gonna play it risky tomorrow!
Tonight is a birthday party at a beer bar, so you can count on me consuming at least one super calorie-laden beverage and tomorrow there may or may not be a barbeque feast. Ugh this weekend is gonna cost me a couple of pounds! =(
Oh well, I'll update you guys later!
