Another week, another What I Ate Wednesday. As always, thanks to Jenn of Peas & Crayons for hosting the link party! Visit her site to see more WIAW from other bloggers!

This month’s WIAW theme is sensible snacking. I don’t know about you, but I definitely need to eat between meals, especially on days I work weird shifts like 7-3 and then have things going on in the evening.

I’m not gonna lie—I am way out of my element in this Food Service rotation. Luckily, I’ve found that by pretending I’m totally calm and capable, I start to sort of believe it myself. I’ve been having a much better time than I thought I would! Being able to set my own pace and manage my time in a way that works for me is nice. Still, I miss being up on the floors and seeing patients. That face-to-face interaction keeps me energized throughout the day, so any chance to get out of the basement, I’m, like, “Let’s go!”

I’d thought I’d be spending more time behind a desk, but I’ve actually been up and about a lot, running between buildings doing a million things a day, so snacks have definitely come in handy. Here’s how I got through Monday, one of those lovely 7-3-ers. Luckily, I was able to get in a little lie-down in before I had to go back out for an evening event.

Breakfast: Overnight oats 

Snack: Baby carrots (unpictured)

Lunch: Big salad from the cafeteria; an orange and green tea 

Snack: Gnu bar (I probably don’t need the 12 grams of fiber, but they taste good…) 

Dinner: Leftover kabocha squash risotto, side salad because I forgot I’d already had salad 

Snack: Pear w/ sunflower seed butter 

Do you like to snack between meals? If you do, what do you reach for?
