Since I was scheduled to work most of my night shift solo, I knew I had to pack food that I could just grab and eat at my desk. During my 10-hour shift, I ate a packet of spicy Grass Fed Jerky Chews and a can of sardines. Doesn’t sound like a ton of food, but it kept me full until the end of my shift. (Protein + fat = satiating!)
After work, I snarfed down a small Primal Pac while we waited with my mother-in-law in the emergency department. Yes, I know it’s better to eat fresh food, but I love having emergency Paleo food that I can grab and go. I can’t wait until my box of goodies from Steve’s Original arrives!
When I came home from the hospital, I was too tired to prepare anything for dinner before hitting the sheets. Luckily, I had stuck a container of braised Thai green curry with grass fed boneless beef short ribs in the freezer earlier this week so I just moved it over to the fridge.
When I woke up, I took the frosty stew out of the fridge…
…and nuked it a few minutes so I could transfer it to a pot.
Then, I brought it to a simmer and added a bag of frozen veggies to it.
While the stew was simmering, I microwaved a bag of frozen green beans and tossed in some salt, pepper, and butter.
Here’s my dinner plate:
After dinner, I did a quick WOD in the garage and I ate some baked yam and Applegate Farms organic roast beef as a post workout snack. Then, I took off a little early for the hospital so I could visit with my mother-in-law before my shift began.
Despite all the curve balls life throws your way, you don’t have to bury your face in a vat of ice cream in times of stress. But if you do, I promise I won’t judge. Well, not to your face anyway. You’re welcome.0
