So I have now been in my “public health nutrition” internship for 3 weeks now, and this 9-5 business without getting paid is rough! But I’m getting my hours for the RD exam, so that’s all that matters! 
One of the biggest changes I had to get used to was packing food for the entire day. What I’ve started doing is cooking up a big pot of something on Sunday, and then eating it for lunch the entire week. 
This week is another recipe from my recent favorite, budget bytes. It’s called Sweet Chili Chicken and it is pretty tasty! I didn’t really listen to the directions, because it’s supposed to be cooked in a slow cooker. I actually just simmered everything together and then added shredded rotisserie chicken. But the flavor is great, and I’m sure the slow cooked version is sooo good.

Chunky vegetable and lentil soup! One of the RDs I’m working with this summer told me about a great blog, budget bytes, and this is the first recipe I tried. Very tasty! I’ll definitely be trying more! 

Here’s the page: http://www.budgetbytes.com/2014/01/chunky-lentil-vegetable-soup/ 

I added mushrooms and spicy chicken sausage to mine. Yum!

Trader Joe’s is my fave…

Especially when my mom is in town and she buys me all the good stuff!

Dinner tonight was chicken tikka masala, naan, and sautéed rainbow chard. Mmm Mmm good!
