Woke up with a headache, a little achy and kind of tired. I slept great though! It was hard to get moving. Thankfully I had another serving of yesterdays meal and I didn't have to do much work in the kitchen. It takes about an hour now to make breakfast if you don't have leftovers. I enjoy cooking though, so that helps immensely! I have to work 2-10 tonight though, so after I eat I have to get dinner going for the family.
The almond beef tasted even better the second day. After thoroughly enjoying it, I made up some Pad Thai with organic pork for the family to heat up later. I did taste one of the rice noodles for doneness (a no-no in the book), but it was only one, when normally I would taste 2-3 bites for flavoring needs. I am pickier than the rest of them though, and not eating it, so they can just add more hot sauce if they need too.
I packed up my snacks and dinner for work. Which would be the last serving of my almond beef, 2 cups of red peppers and half of a grapefruit. 8 hour shifts are perfect at work because we get a break, a lunch and another break with 2-3 hours in between. My tummy loves it as long as I am prepared with food. The book doesn't like snacking, but I cannot eat enough without getting over-full at meal times to not need a snack. My snacks are fruits and veggies though, and sometimes I don't eat a full lunch, so I am not worried.
Came home, exhausted, went to bed.
