Okay, so this is what I eat every day:
(be prepared for boredom, people)
Things I Eat For Breakfast
2 eggs, either fried or with goat cheese as an omelet
some homemade granola with raisins and soy milk
lately, a Starbucks DoubleShot in a can, so I can be alive-awake-alert-enthusiastic while I write a paper before work
Things I Eat While I’m At Work/School
some kind of trail mix from Trader Joes
whole wheat water crackers
canned mandarin oranges
Things I Might Eat When I’m Still Hungry And Have 3+ Hours Left At Work/School
Gross soup from the food court
Expensive/mediocre sandwiches from the food court
Expensive apples from the food court
Tiny bags of chips from the food court
Things I Might Eat For Dinner
Trader Joes frozen tamales
Sandwich with goat cheese, tomato, lettuce, mayo & pesto on sourdough
Sandwich with chicken, tomato, lettuce, mayo & pesto on sourdough
Green bean casserole
Broccoli, rice & cheese casserole
Crash potatoes with ketchup
Things I Might Eat For Dinner When Lance Isn’t Around
Tortilla chips and hummus
Tortilla chips and refried beans
Tortilla chips and salsa
Okay. That’s it. That’s really it. When I don’t have any soymilk, I make cinnamon toast to go with my eggs, I steam broccoli occasionally, and somehow I end up eating way more cookies and candy than a sane almost-25-year-old should, but really, that’s it. My entire culinary ouevre.
Problem 1: I eat too much sugar
Problem 2: I don’t eat any vegetables
Problem 3: I’m so sick of eating cheese and crackers and mandarin oranges and carrots and Luna bars and gross, expensive things!!
Problem 4: I gave up tortilla chips for Lent.
Problem 5: I gave up eating meat for the foreseeable future.
Problem 6: I can’t think of anything else to eat. Really.
My cooking needs are just so gd specific. I can really only be home to cook 2 nights a week, and on Thursdays Lance isn’t here so I feel very silly slaving over a hot stove when I could just eat tortilla chips. And I’m obviously not bringing enough food to school, but I don’t even want to eat the food I DO bring with me in the first place.
So basically, I am looking for:
Tasty, portable, healthy vegetarian lunches with vegetables
Quick, simple, healthy vegetarian dinners with vegetables
Got any of those dinners laying around?
Without my 2 bags of Santitas a week, I might expire.
