Even though I’ve known my dietetic internship start date for months, of course there were plenty of errands I only just remembered to do this weekend. Funny how that goes…
Fortunately, I was feeling much better rested than Saturday (my evening included a late dinner at a great Mexican restaurant on the Upper West Side, after which I went home and crawled into bed), so I had tons of energy. After a morning hot yoga class and a bunch of “omg how could I forget_____” errands, I got to work. Though I often take Sundays to prep food and whatnot for the week ahead, I took things to a whole other level today. I made:
- A bunch of roasted vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, beets and eggplant
- Brown rice
- Baked tofu
- Butternut squash breakfast cookies (most are going into the freezer for emergencies)
I’m also that nerd who puts out their clothes and packs a lunch and snacks the night before. It’s been a few months since I’ve had to do that, but it always keeps my mornings more sane. The next eleven months are going to be interesting, to say the least, but I’m excited to get started.
How do you keep your weekday mornings sane?
