Wrapping Up Week I

April 9, 2010

Howdy! [Please pardon these awful photos!! I had no choice]

First I gotta give a shout out to that fabulous breakfast [that I can't stop thinking about!] It held me over from 7-1PM no problem! Must have been the perfect blend of macronutrients :)

We broke for lunch at 1PM. Got a hummus wrap.

This guy was GIANT! Maybe 2 pounds!? Whole wheat tortilla (of of those big burrito ones) filled with some hummus, tomatoes, cuc, lettuce, jalapenos, sprouts and oregano. It was quite good!

About halfway through I reached fork mode. I ate about 80% of the guy, just leaving the butt of the tortilla (to try to shave a few calories off since I know how big they can be.)

On the side: a nice little orange.

With some lemonade-spiked water –

ADIOS!

Delicious! And I adore the packet of Texas Petes in that last shot ;) We found some in an airport a while back, and I grabbed a couple big BIG handfuls to take with me!! I keep some in my top drawer at work to spice, literally, up my lunches..

i always say that chipotle burritos are the size of a small child! sometimes burritos are ridiculously large – but i love ‘em!

That is cool that the RD’s get to eat for free! And also cool that it is reasonably priced!

I’m a big fan of pun’s like those haha.

Wrap’s are just spectacular and so very dangerous. I could eat them 24/7. Enjoy the rest of today Kath!

That looks awesome! I find our hospitals food is pretty decent too, thanks to the RDs!

That’s one massive burrito! It’s like Chipotle, where my friends and I always joke we get burrito babies. ;)

12 Sarah-Mae @ Eat, Run, Knit April 9, 2010 at 1:31 pm

I agree, that burrito looks deliciously large!
Congrats on finishing your first week and best of luck tomorrow!

‘Wrapping’ up week 1…..hahahah…that must have been intentional. If it wasn’t, that’s even better!! ;) Have a great weekend!

Wraps are such an easy on-the-go lunch. I don’t have them that often, but when I do, I love ‘em! How are the shoes doing today?? GOOD LUCK tomorrow!

Lots of math-related stuff with being an RD for sure! (especially clinical, I think!) :D

Your wrap looks fabulous!

16 Estela @ Weekly Bite April 9, 2010 at 1:37 pm

You’re bringing back so many memories of being an intern! :)

Glad to hear your first week went well!!

Way to shave calories off that big butt! ;)

Yeah, looks good!

Wanna-be nutrition student here so I’m interested in what you mean with the math. I’m good at math, but what makes the clinical rotation different from the others with it??

Reply

23 Kath April 9, 2010 at 5:04 pm

What do you mean “the others with it?”

It’s simple math – algebra! Multiplication. Fun stuff!

Reply

24 Melissa April 9, 2010 at 8:12 pm

Haha wow that doesn’t make much sense, does it? Sorry I’m knee deep in studying Chem and Bio 101 right now for tests next week and my mind is all over the place. I meant your other internships, but it makes sense that clinical would be the most math-heavy of the three. Right now Chem equations are still a bit intimidating but algebra and multiplication are definitely fun!

(I promise not to comment in the middle of studying mitosis again ;) )

25 Kath April 10, 2010 at 12:22 pm

Clinical is WAY easier then Chemistry :)

26 Jessica @ The Process of Healing April 9, 2010 at 2:14 pm

The wrap is huge but looks delicious! You’re lucky to have such good food available to you!

27 Heather C April 9, 2010 at 2:44 pm

Hey there!
Sounds like you’re enjoying the Clinical Rotation so far :) I did my Dietetic Internship last year and remember those hospitals days very well! I just found your blog through a variety of other foodie bloggers (Anne P, Caitlin, etc) and first of all – LOVE. Secondly, that page of oatmeal?! OMG. No words. I ‘ll probably stare at it for days; and then start trying them one by one. A-mazing.

I had GIANT burrito at Chipotle the other day. It was SO big, but SO good, I really wanted to finish it all lol. I need to eat wraps more often, they are so much fun. :)

Texas Pete is the best hot sauce, it makes everything taste better!

36 jaclyn@todayslady April 9, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Big wraps are my fave!!! I dont eat the full wrap most of the time but it’s nice to have the option so you’re not left wanting more!!

Reply

37 Christy April 9, 2010 at 4:01 pm

It’s great to hear all of your internship experiences… I’ll be there in a year from now so I love to keep up with what you’re learning/doing during your rotations! Keep the info comin’! :-) Thanks!

38 Cait (Cait's Plate) April 9, 2010 at 4:05 pm

That breakfast did look amazing but that lunch doesn’t look half bad either!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE huge wraps (even if you have to eat them with a fork!). Happy Friday Kath!

Reply

39 Melissa G April 9, 2010 at 4:16 pm

Just wantet to clarify for all the RD wanna-be’s. The math that Kath is talking about is really very simple, and all done with a calculator. You need to have a basic understanding of alegbra, but really it’s super easy and anyone can learn it with the right teacher. I’ve been an RD for 8 years and I can do it in my sleep now. So if you want to go into the nutrition field, do not let math hold you back.! Glad you had a first good week Kath!

This is good to read! I am good at math and definitely enjoy working with numbers…but its nice to know not to be intimidated by it :) Thanks!

Those burrito tortilla’s can be way to big sometimes. Halfway through I usually have to grab a fork and just eat the inside also.
