I often receive inquiries about the food I make for myself each week. Usually this is followed by said inquirer lamenting that he or she doesn’t have time to shop and cook meals at home. I get it. And I totally agree, it’s difficult.

Meal Prep

Let’s talk meal prep. It’s no secret that I am not a great chef. And I am not a big fan of cooking elaborate meals.

The other week I decided to try something different and instead of quinoa and I cooked up some wheat berries. Crazy, I know.

Overnight Oats to Kick off a Busy Week

Today marks the beginning of the end.
In a good way.
I am one month away from graduation (!) and so today we receive our comprehensive exams. This means that I have two weeks to write up everything I have learned in the past 2 years. Easy enough, right?
Well, actually I am approaching it like I am about to enter a war zone. I spent the weekend stocking up on food. Trying to catch up on sleep. Exercising off the anxiety. Cleaning my apartment. Painting my nails.  Basically doing all the things  I won’t have time to do once I dive into this exam.

Packing Lunch

Suggestions on How to Pack a Healthy Lunch When You are Short on Time, Money and Cooking Skills:

Back in the day when I was gainfully employed and not living the student life, I used to buy lunch nearly every day. It seems crazy to me now, but  my life and lifestyle in DC is just so different. Living in New York with my 2 roommates, we just did not keep food in our apartment, ever. In our fridge you might have found old hummus and many bottles of wine and that was it.
