My final night of late night eats for the week:

At 10:30 p.m., I snacked on a small container of coconut butter. This stuff is goooooooooood.

“Lunch” at 2:00 a.m. consisted of leftover (no longer crispy) sous vide chicken thigh, winter squash puree, and nuked frozen veggies.

At 4:30 a.m., I ate some macadamia nuts and coconut flakes as my second snack of the night.

My last meal at work was at 7:00 a.m. when I ate leftover stir fried kelp noodles with ground pork and Dukka-seasoned roasted cauliflower.

I’ll be flipping back to dayshift today so I take a nap from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.; eat a small snack in the afternoon; enjoy dinner with the family; and try my best to sleep through the night. I’m gonna be a cranky mofo today (and probably tomorrow).

Here’s what I ate at work tonight:

I ate my first snack at 10:30 p.m. which consisted of a hardboiled egg, crudités and Aubergine dip.

"Lunch" was at 1:30 a.m. when I wolfed down some leftover curry ground pork and broccoli slaw frittata with a side of nuked frozen mixed veggies.

At 4:30 a.m., I ate a small container of coconut flakes and macadamia nuts. My favorite Paleo snack of all time.

At 7:00 a.m. I ate my last meal of the night.  I reheated some leftover grass fed beef shank and cabbage stew with garlic cauliflower mashed “potatoes” and roasted Tabil-seasoned cremini mushrooms.

I had me some good eats tonight.

As some of you are aware, I’m a night shift worker so I always need to pack meals to eat in the dead of night. I’ve decided to only write one post per night detailing my eats because it gets kind of repetitive. And I’m lazy, remember?

My first snack of the night was at midnight, when I ate some crudites and Aubergine dip. I would’ve eaten earlier but I snarfed down some macadamia nuts post-workout prior to coming to work, so I wasn’t hungry until the witching hour.

Around 2:00 a.m., I ate my “lunch,” which consisted of a lovely salad (greens with sous vide chicken breast, avocados, cucumbers, and shredded carrots) made by my fabulous hubby.

My second snack of the night was at 4:00 a.m.: A yummy bowl of coconut milk and blueberries.

I wolfed down my last meal at work shortly before 7:00 a.m., when I attacked a container of leftover grass fed beef shank and cabbage stew and cauliflower rice.

I think the key to keeping sane while working the graveyard shift is having a set routine and packing lots of leftovers. I’m glad I stopped experimenting with intermittent fasting, because that was a complete failure.

If I’m hungry, I’ll eat — but now, I’m paying greater attention so I don’t do it mindlessly.
