Today flew by. After setting up coffee, tea and snacks for the students at school I tried my best to stay focused all day long, but I'm getting to the point where I really just need a break! I wrote the exam at 5pm and was home by 7:30 for a cooking marathon.
I go through roasted veggies VERY fast, so I've got to make a boatload of them every few days. Here's my recipe from today (usually I just throw together whatever I've got lying around in the fridge):
1/2 cup olive oil/ coconut oil ( whatever you've got)
2 TBSP dried rosemary
1 TBSP dried thyme
1 Butternut squash, chopped
1 Sweet potato, chopped
1 Yam, chopped
5 carrots, chopped
6 stalks of celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 Fahrenheit
Before chopping vegetables, mix the spices and the oil in a bowl and let sit.
Chop all the vegetables, and put them in a large pot.
Pour the oil into the large pot and make sure all pieces of vegetables are coated.
Bake for 40 minutes!
Food I ate today
11am: 3 cups roasted veggies, 3 eggs, 1 sausage, 1/2 cup hummus, 4 pieces dark chocolate
1pm: 1 cup baby bok choy, 3oz salmon, banana

Today was a compressed feeding schedule because the exam was at 5pm. It's 10:44 now and I'm a bit hungry, so we'll see how I feel in the morning! Might eat at 9am tomorrowing since I started my fast an hour earlier tonight.
Have a great night!
