What did I eat at work today? I thought you’d never ask.

My first meal of the day was a big bowl of curried cream of broccoli soup and sous vide chicken breast.

I know it looks like there’s only a small piece of chicken in the soup but there’s a ton of meat lurking under the surface.

For snack, I ate a small container of coconut flakes and macadamia nuts. I love this snack. Note to self: during me time off, I really need to limit my intake of this stuff.

The last meal I ate at work was some leftover sous vide flank steak with herb gravy, nuked green beans, and carrot and parsnip puree.

When I got home from work, I took Big-O to school and then hung out with the little guy. Before turning in, I filled and preheated my SousVide Supreme to 135 F so it would be ready to reheat precooked sous vide pork chops when I got up later that evening.

At dinnertime, I dropped the precooked pork chops in the water oven and then I broiled some asparagus spears tossed in bacon grease (that I finished with a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar)…

…and prepared some Asian cauliflower fried rice.

I seared my chops with my kitchen torch

…and dinner was served.

After dinner I quickly boxed up some meals for work. I only had around 10-15 minutes to spare for exercise so I decided to try a 2K row on our erg. When I finished, I gulped down half a baked sweet potato and deli turkey slices, showered, and headed to work. Only two more nights of work!
