A Day of Repeats


The food presented here may look familiar. No, you’re not experiencing déjà vu – you have seen them before! For my own amusement, and to show off my awfulsome photography skills, let us push on.

Throw a cup of coffee next to that bowl of oatmeal, and you’ve got breakfast.

Today, I was running/driving/stair-climbing from 7:30 am to 6 pm – at least I brought my heart rate up! My heart rate was pretty high before our first Medical Nutrition Therapy test this morning, but the test actually wasn’t bad at all!

After that, my teaching companions and I started running around gathering materials for our two teaching sessions tomorrow. Yep, that’s right: TWO. The other one was a surprise addition we were told about today. Tomorrow should be interesting (and exhausting). We’ll be teaching the kids about whole grains and healthy breakfasts, as well as the importance of sleep and healthy snacks. The kids range in age from 3rd grade to 8th grade. Oh, yeah.

I gobbled lunch during class – this is what it would have looked like on my desk, if only the room wasn’t dark … and if my desk was mosaic:

Just replace the chicken with leftover Cornish hen, and you’ve got lunch.

Check out my sprouts!



Some … flower … I forget the name …

Spinach 🙁

Dinner was identical to this day:

Replace the bread with a slice made from white whole wheat bread, and you’ve got dinner.

Look at that crumb!

Chocolate was eaten:

I won’t tell you by whom 😉

We received this cute little Le Creuset today:

With my hand, for scale:

I guess we can make a little pot roast with it? Oh well, it’s adorable, so I guess that makes up for it being not as useful 🙂

Gotta go prepare for tomorrow!


  1. that is such a cute pot!! love the oatmeal too-breakfast of champs!

  2. I eat the same thing pretty much everyday and wouldn’t have it any other way – every day is a repeat for me! 😉 I want that pea soup!! That little pot is so adorable. Have a good evening! 🙂

  3. Hi Jessie! I’m glad you thought the post was informative and worth sending to your friend 🙂 Lovely eats, I’m always having leftovers! That le crueset is adorable, maybe you could make a mini soup or fondue? 🙂

    1. Fondue is a great idea!

  4. oh my goodness, what an ADORABLE little creuset!!! I can’t wait to see what you do with it!

  5. Good luck teaching! Le Creuset is adorable, maybe you can name it 🙂

  6. it’s too bad you guys didn’t get to do your lesson plan after all that preparation…but on the bright side: hooray for snow days!! 🙂 the le crueset is adorable–perfect for minimuffins perhaps?? lol see you tomorrow!

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love what you’ve got growing. I have a rosemary plant but would love to grow spinach and tomatoes to start.
    I remember those MNT tests. Have fun teaching the nutrition lesson to the kids!
