My nightshifts have been super busy this week and tonight was no exception. I fasted during my 10-hour shift because I wasn’t super hungry and I didn’t really have time to eat. 

When I came home, I ate a slice of leftover frittata along with a tomato and avocado salad.

As a special treat, I savored some dark chocolate and coconut flakes before heading to bed. I wish I slept right away, but instead, I stayed up waaaaaaay past my bedtime watching True Blood on the iPad. I’m totally on Team Eric.

When I woke up in the evening, I groggily threw together a quick dinner. Damn you, HBO GO!

I roasted a tray of curried cauliflower in the toaster oven…

…sauteed sliced bell peppers and onions…

…and stir-fried a batch of Madras curry seasoned emergency protein with ground mutton and beef.

Here’s my dinner plate:

We ended up with enough leftovers to pack three boxed lunches! 

After we tucked the Double-O’s in bed for the night, I plopped a pork picnic roast seasoned with Alaea Red Hawaiian coarse sea salt into my new slow cooker

…and exercised in the garage gym. I’m excited to chow on Kalua Pig for dinner tomorrow night!

Then, I gathered up my belongings, chugged a homemade espresso, and drove to the hospital. I’m more than halfway through my work week!
