Tonight I am cooking. With uni starting Monday, I want healthy packable snacks, so I have a pile of ingredients to combine into just that.|
- chicken sausages (er, slightly burnt, fortunately neither velithya nor I is particularly picky about that)
- beef, broccoli, spring onion and pineapple in honey-soy sauce
- chopped chicken sausages with spring onion and broccoli and pineapple (I like pineapple)
Along with apples and bread rolls, I should be able to keep myself stocked with healthy food to take to uni with me.
Slightly unfortunately, I'm often bad at judging the volume of ingredients once combined, but there should be enough containers. It helps that I bought some new boxes today - small ones, appropriate for Sami-snacks. (The endocrinologist endorsed the Frequent But Healthy Snacking plan until further information is available, hence aiming for broccoli-heavy things, since broccoli is very good for you and I'm okay with eating it.)
Props on all this must go to Chas, since he cut up the broccoli and spring onion for me, because he awesome.
I have a line of little boxes, all carefully filled but with their lids off so they can cool before I seal them up. I also bought some plastic cutlery so I can have cutlery to take that it's okay if it gets lost/destroyed.
I have yet to find an appropriate backpack (i.e. one that can comfortably and securely hold a 17" widescreen laptop - they're all designed for 15" or less, it seems), so it looks like I'm going to have to go to uni with two bags, which is kind of annoying, but I can handle it. The important thing is to stay on top of everything, including making sure I have food (it's not that easy to get healthy gluten-free food on campus, and it's expensive), and am keeping up with my classes, and everything will be okay.
It will. Especially since if I'm lucky I won't be battling my brain as much, because I'm seeing the psychiatrist on Wednesday.
