Yesterday’s food was brought to you by: Trader Joe’s. It’s ridiculous, really. Please don’t tell me Trader Joe’s is in some way destroying the world because it is my sole grocery store right now because it is CHEAP but still sells organic. Actually, does anyone have a strong opinion on TJ’s either way? I’m sure they are doing some major things wrong that get people all riled up… like supporting factory farmed produce that is raping the Earth and homogenizing our food supply… Do tell if you’re into that (and educated on it). But they do a whole lot of good, too. I haven’t looked into it. I’m sure someone will educate me…
Anyway, for those who missed it, I’m documenting my food for one week and one week only. Here’s day two…
I know what you’re thinking: WHEN DOES THIS FOOL MINDLESSLY BINGE EAT LIKE THE REST OF US?
I do. Believe me. I am a stress eater and used to have a lot of trouble with binge eating at night (I’ll devote a full post to this soon), but I identified that habit and have been able to squash it for the most part.
Last night I kept it together with a snack on a plate but still went back for a bowl full of leftover almond butter cup filling. Who keeps bowls of leftover almond butter cup filling in the fridge? I do. Obviously. I made those suckers like TWO WEEKS AGO but ran out of time or chocolate or something and set the extra filling aside to be used at another time. That time was last night at 1am…
I used dried apricots as a vessel whose sole purpose was to transfer that buttery, sugary goodness straight to my face.
Nope, Weaz should not be on the counter.
There you have it. Some notes…
- I eat the same thing for breakfast almost every day.
- Both lunch and dinner were eaten at work on this day. Tupperware is my friend.
- My dinner looked like straight up vomit, right? Tasted just great, promise.
- My intake was low on this day. I was busy and running around and not prepared for it.
- Because my dinner was so light (and consumed at an ungodly early hour of 5pm), I knew I’d be snacking all night. And that happened. I don’t consider it a problem at all because I was legitimately hungry and my body was just telling me I hadn’t eaten enough during the day. Listen to your body.
- I can’t wait until I have a normal human schedule that involves cooking real meals and sitting down to eat them.
