Sweet chili chicken with mango avocado salsa and peach slices. Yum :)
First attempt at bread: Crusty Italian Bread…delicious!
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!

I added mushrooms and spicy chicken sausage to mine. Yum!
Steak for dinner :)
Sweet potato stuffed with chickpeas, spinach, and onion. Topped with mozzarella cheese. Scrumptious and healthy.
Breakfast on the go. Vanilla Greek yogurt with “funfetti” protein powder :)
My new toy. Sir Mix A Lot. My boyfriend surprised me with this for no reason. I couldn’t believe it! Finally going to experiment with bread, the one thing I’ve never tried to make :)
Trader Joe’s makes me one happy camper!
Creamy goat cheese penne with tomatoes and Swiss chard
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!
