Some Things I’ve Been Eating Lately

It’s finals week, which means any student or professor you know is probably feeling somewhat overwhelmed and slightly cranky. There’s part of me that loves grading final papers and projects because I get to see student progress and that’s one of the most fulfilling parts of my job. But it also takes so.much.time, and then, at the end, you have to do math to calculate their final grade. MATH!; after hours upon hours of reading and commenting on papers. What a cruel joke.

For the most part, I’ve been making food choices that give me energy and happiness during crunch time. Here are a couple recent breakfasts:

christmas colors, obvi.

Honestly, I’ve been relying on the Whole Foods salad bar for lunch more than I should, but I didn’t make time to food prep this week. No pics of that, but it’s been mostly small to-go containers of greens, veggies, and hummus. Dinners have been big salads with steamed or roasted veggies. When I felt like I was getting a cold again, I made this turmeric carrot soup (truly a panacea!).

a friend lent me some of his CSA share and I roasted up this beautiful watermelon radish to put on top of a big salad. so pretty!

not the prettiest, but it's magic, i swear.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t dessert-ing with the (vegan & gluten-free) cookies I’ve been making for parties and gifts. Admittedly, extra sugar is not helping with optimal energy and health, BUT they sure do taste good and make me feel Christmasy!

    I don’t know how I’ve never crossed your blog, but so happy that I found it! I’m a fellow Boston vegan feminist, and I can’t wait to read more :)

    I always think of the poor professors who have to grade a million papers/projects at the end of a semester. As much as I thought writing my paper sucked, it must be worse to have to read and grade a ton of them! Om nom nom, those cookies! I have not had a single Christmas cookie this year since I have not come across any vegan ones. The Whole Foods salad bar is such a lifesaver during busy times. I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season, friend! <3
