Chem Lab went well – it usually does. It’s just a pain to get through in general. I was really excited about trying my Coconut Cream Larabar today but I came out of chem with zero hunger! Go lunch! Guess I’ll just keep postponing it. I really want to just open it and take a bite, but then I’ll just eat the whole thing by accident.
I came home and did some more work and ended up having a small glass of wine leftover from a bottle of red my parents brought back from a restaurant they went to on the way here. I reasoned it was going to go back if I didn’t consume it soon! It was juicy and delicioso.
I also did get hungry around 5:30 and had 2 super-stale but super-chewy toast points with some homemade hummus.
For dinner I made a Spiced Lentil Salad with a mish-mosh of ingredients. It turned out great, and I have enough for my lunch tomorrow
Toss together in a bowl:
- 2 cups cooked brown lentils (hooray for Sunday prep work!)
- 1 cup chopped broccoli, steamed in microwave
- 2 cups sliced sugar snap peas, steamed in microwave
- 1/2 a giant sweet potato (9 oz), steamed in microwave
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 7 walnut halves, chopped
- About 1/3 cup raisins, hydrated in some hot water
- 1 big tablespoon honey mustard
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp cider vinegar
- 2 pinches salt
- 1 tsp garam masala spice
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
On the side the husband took the other half of the giant sweet potato and made Sweet Potato Latkes. They were good on the outside, but pretty much raw on the inside, so this recipe needs tweaking.
- 1/2 giant sweet potato (9 oz), grated
- 1 garlic clove, grated
- 1 egg
- Salt + Pepper
- Tsp brown sugar
I ended up microwaving mine to get the insides (and raw garlic!!) cooked and added some ketchup.
I am feeling a little hungry at the moment, but I didn’t drink my water with dinner so I’m off to have some now. There’s too little time in this day!! My Foodservice recipe adjustment is turning out to be way more work than I had planned. I was hoping to take a bubble bath or something tonight, but our bathtub isn’t that appealing and I’m out of time as always. Maybe just some cozying up in bed to read about nutrition during lactation.
