Do you ever wake up still ticked off about something from the day before? That was me on Sunday morning. Most of the time I can let things roll off my back, but we all have our days, I guess.

It didn’t help that I had an aggressively runny nose that was probably my body’s way of telling me that alcohol and cold walks home do not mix, even if I stick to my limit and bundle up.Luckily, I didn’t have any other symptoms, but still—comfort food was clearly in order.

For breakfast, I made an old favorite: apple spice oats, topped with peanut butter. IMG_1475After doing yoga and probably driving my neighbors crazy with my latest self-indulgent spotify playlist (this one’s almost all Rolling Stones and Neil Young—I can’t stop listening to this song lately for some reason, and I’m not that sorry), I picked up some groceries and whipped up these weird little items. They were supposed to be black bean burgers, but in a few days, you will be seeing a recipe for rice & bean cup-muffins. Or whatever I decide to call them…When in doubt, just throw it in a muffin tin. IMG_1482

Lunch was an assortment of things I was craving. By the way, if you haven’t tried roasted eggplant slices on toast with hummus, you need to try it—so good! IMG_1480

I spent most of the afternoon studying for the RD exam, reading this book, and doing random things around the apartment that needed doing. By evening, I was feeling a lot better, mentally and physically. Luckily, I have some good things to look forward to this week with less weekday runaround involved, so cheers to hopefully feeling 100% soon.

What are you comfort foods? What are you looking forward to this week?
