Without further ado, here are my eats on my second night at work…

My first meal in the middle of the night was a box of leftover grass fed T-bone steak, winter squash puree, sauteed mushrooms, and roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon.

A few hours later, I snacked on a couple leftover mini frittata muffins

…and a handful of macadamia nuts and coconut flakes.

For my “dinner” I ate a box of Chili Con Carne seasoned grass fed ground beef, cauliflower fried rice, and roasted asparagus.

After work, I marinated some tandoori chicken thighs and then drove to my class at CrossFit Palo Alto. It’s tough doing a WOD on my day off but it’s damn near impossible after a night shift. I was wiped out after my class so I went to bed right away.

At 5:00 p.m., I was kinda groggy but I started preparing dinner. I baked the tandoori chicken thighs…

sautéed spinach with shallots and bacon

…blitzed some garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes

…and pureed a large vat of curried cream of broccoli soup. I started blending this soup with my old immersion stick blender but it literally sparked in my hand and blew a fuse. Yikes. Out came my trusty Vitamix and I pureed my veggie soup in a few seconds.

My Vitamix is super powerful but it’s a pain in the ass blending up hot soup without making a big mess. I already ordered my replacement immersion blender on Amazon for only $26.95…

Here’s me digging in:

You’d think I’d be full after all this food, but I still managed to cram down half a package of coconut flakes while I surfed the web. Them flakes are dangerous.

After stuffing myself silly with coco goodness, I packed my stuff for work and set off once again to bring home the bacon.
