Twenty Pounds of Apples

I may have failed to get a picture of my yummy breakfast, but I do have pictures of my lunch and snacks for the rest of the day!

Today seems to be c-r-a-w-l-i-n-g by, probably because I’ve been feeling “off” all week!  Hopefully some Pilates and stretching tonight will bring me back into focus.

I usually have a break for a few hours on Monday/Wednesday mornings between Senior Design and International Business.  Today I used that time to get my International Business exam rescheduled, then got some work done in the business school building since I had class there next anyways.  My professor wanted proof that I was actually going to be at the SWE National Conference during the scheduled exam time, but once I showed him my flight and registration confirmations, he had no problem letting me take the exam early.  Yay!

Lunch was delicious:

IMG_3083A baby empire apple.  Its my favorite variety, and I love going to orchards in the fall to get them– they’re hard to find in grocery stores!  You have to get them when they are so dark, they’re almost purple, or else they are too sour, fyi.  Just in case you decide to go pick some yourself. 🙂

Sorry, you’re going to be seeing a lot of apples in my eats for the next few weeks, since I have a 20-pound bag sitting on my kitchen table!

Apple recipes, anyone?

A very “off” week

I don’t know what is up with me this week!  I’ve been forgetful and exhausted, falling asleep on the couch two nights in a row.  Apparently, 6-7 hours of sleep doesn’t do it for me anymore?  Huh.  Its bound to get better soon, though!

No picture of breakfast this morning because I was running late.  However, it was amazing!  I made breakfast quinoa again, containing:

  • 1/3 c. quinoa
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1/3 c. milk
  • Almond butter
  • Pumpkin butter
  • 1 apple, chopped and heated with cinnamon

Such a good, filling breakfast!  I also had 3/4 c. milk and a chai tea.

I have, once again, packed my lunch, snacks, and half my dinner for today.  The Taco Bell and McDonald’s we’re having at the SWE Section Meeting tonight just don’t sound appealing to me.  It always feels like so much food when I pack food for a long day.

Anyone else have to pack multiple meals and snacks for long days at work, school or elsewhere?  Do you have any tips for those who do?

Mine are to get some good Tupperware containers that only fit a single portion of food.  Otherwise, you have to carry a bunch of containers around that take up more space than you can handle!
