Last weekend I moved to a new apartment on the other side of town. It was super exciting but also took way more out of me physically than I thought it would.
A procrastinator by heart, I planned out the logistics of packing rather than actually doing the packing itself. Basically – I kind of waited until the last minute. The almost all-nighter reminded me of some of my college days.
Another side effect of moving was that for once in my life I wasn’t being a food hoarder. I found myself with nothing in the pantry. Which meant random ass dinner and nibbles of stale items left in the corners of the cabinets. That, paired with convenience store snacks for brunch (BBQ chips were eaten…) and ridic mealtime gaps zapped my body into sugar-filled galore that had me feeling like shit 8 hours later.
Thank goodness my aunts/cousin immediately brought us steaming hot home cooked dishes so my hangry headache would finally disappear. Their basket entailed an entire roasted chicken, vegan chili, brown and white rice, and steamed broccoli.
I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to shovel my face with veggies. It is amazing how good of a fuel nutrient-packed food is for our bodies. It made me feel so much better.
I’m hoping to eat healthier this week now so it will help me unpack!
Thanks as always to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!
Tell me: do you ever forget to plan meals when you’re really busy, or during a move?

Nothing beats clean eating… okay splurging from time to time is good too, Ha! Glad your move went well, hunnie. Good luck w/ unpacking.
Seriously. 🙂 Thanks, Jessie!
Cheers for the aunts (& cousin)!
It’s way too hard to plan meals while you’re on the go. I just give up and say I’ll do better once I get settled. Good luck with that getting settled thing, btw!
Aw, thanks Amy – I know, we are too hard on ourselves sometimes.
I plan when the kids are around, otherwise I just make do with whatever is available.
