There are Days when Podcasts Save my Life

Today was one.  Slate Cultural Gabfest on the way to work, and This American Life on the way to class and home. 

I started the day feeling adventurous.  So adventurous I made intensely appley oatmeal.  It was cinnamon apple flavor and I used about 1/2 C of apple sauce with it.

I mean, it was intensely apple-flavored.  A bit too much.  But at least I got some fruit in.

And a big ol' dollop of peanut butter!

Work went well, but I was ready for lunch because I didn't pack a snack.

More fruit and veggies!  I've been bad about my veggie intake recently, so I made a salad with cucumber, carrot, some hearts of palm, green bell pepper, a few small cheese cubes, a bit of chicken and an egg.  Then I had half of a grapefruit.  It hit the spot!

Then I went to class.  Before class, I stopped by my professor's office hours to ask some questions.  I felt back on track, totally caught up, the world was lookin' up!  Then I went to class, and by the end of lecture, I felt more confused than ever before!  Ugh!

I came home and wanted comfort food.  I've been craving Ramen for two days now!  Weird, right?  I tried to make it a bit healthier.  I added some veggies and a bit of chicken.  Luckily, I had carrots and some frozen sugar snap peas available!

It hit the spot!  Now I'm just hanging out, watching some TV comedy.
