Yesterday was my first day of my summer public health dietetic internship! It was fun to have an excuse to get dressed up again :)
I had a great first day! The Registered Dietitian who my classmate, Diana, and I will be working with seems really cool and willing to do anything she can to help us fulfill our list of requirements and get the most out of our internships. It should be a fun summer :) She was also totally cool with me taking pictures at our community nutrition-related events and sharing what we’re doing this summer, so stay tuned!
I packed up enough food for an army to bring to work yesterday — being super hungry with nothing around = disaster.
First up — lunch!
An enormous arugula, beet, and kidney bean salad:
With a little baggie of balsamic vinaigrette dressing inside the lid of the container:
Plus half of a leftover chicken and black bean burrito bowl from Chipotle! Matt and I kicked the soccer ball around for a couple hours on Monday night and by the time we got home and showered, it was already 8:30! He LOVES Chipotle and offered to pick it up for us… clearly I couldn’t refuse ;)
To refresh my palate at the end of the meal — orange slices:
And for afternoon snacks, I packed a hearty slice of my Vegan Figgy Apricot Spelt Bread:
I brought the slice on the left. (Just kidding.)
Plus some almonds in case all hell broke loose:
Turns out all hell did not break loose; therefore the almonds will be staying in my purse for tomorrow.
In other news, last night I dropped Matt off at the airport — he’s in NYC for the day and tonight he leaves from there with some college friends to go to PERU to hike the Inca Trail! I am dying of jealousy and so wish I could go with. They were trying to work it so I could come, too, but sadly between school and my internship this summer the timing just wasn’t going to happen for me. I told him he has to do a guest post for you guys all about the trip when he gets back :) He’ll be gone for 2 weeks, sadface!
I’m off to internship day 2 — and then it’s time to come home and get organized because I’m leaving for Fitbloggin’ tomorrow straight from work! So pumped :)
Have a great day!
p.s. I didn’t forget, don’t worry! The winner of my SPIbelt giveaway is…
