Yesterday was busy, busy for me. I woke up at 5:30am to get to my cycling class at 6:30am (it is 100% worth it to me), and I did not get home until 7:30 PM! Eep! Thankfully, I am such a planner and I knew it was going to be a looong day on campus, so I was able to pack accordingly. When I say “pack,” I, of course, mean food and snacks to keep me going. I usually like to sit down and enjoy my food without distractions, but sometimes, a girl has to multi-task.
I know I should eat before my early spin class, but last week, I ate two boiled egg whites for breakfast and I feel sick eating that early… This week, I blended up some Chocolate Vegan Shakeology with half a frozen banana and almond milk. I stashed it in my gym locker for after my workout this time. It was a much better choice than last week. My shake refueled me and gave me energy to power through my two classes before my next break.
After my Mechatronics class, I headed to the library for my hour break before Organic Chemistry class to study OChem and eat of course. I packed a medium Granny Smith apple and PB2.
Do you see a trend here? Maybe that I am a huge snacker? It’s true. I find I am at my best when I consume many small snacks throughout the day rather than large meals while waiting longer time intervals. I cannot wait that long. I start feel shaky and hangry. No one deserves to talk to me when I am hangry. It is not pretty, just ask my poor mother…sorry mom… Anyway, for my next break, I had half a portion of both walnuts and raw cashews. I love nuts, but I tend to eat them by the handfuls and that is NOT good for me. So, with the help of the 21 Day Fix color coded containers, I knew I was eating the proper amount of nuts for a snack. (Just don’t ask what happened after dinner…. I went a bit…nuts on the nuts… oops.)
During my Fluid Dynamics class, I always snack on veggies and hummus. My classmates are catching on to my habit and look forward to my willingness to share ;) I can spread the hummus love, it’s okay.
For my last event of the day, a cultural seminar for engineers, I ate a Chia Bar instead of having the provided pizza. I knew my healthy, vegan dinner waited for me at home. I will post that recipe later on today! Thank goodness for my laid back Tuesdays and Thursdays!
What’s your favorite thing to snack on?
