We all need a nuggets & fries night

Filed under: "ehhh" days,food — by heatherdc @ 7:41 am

Yes, I have a degree in Nutritional Sciences. No, I don’t eat perfectly every day. And yes, sometimes, I still have chicken nuggets & fries for dinner.

Not from McDonald’s, or any other fast food venue. From your local grocery store with 0 g Trans fat and blah blah blah. You don’t care. Neither do I.

After a slooow afternoon at work and an hour long commute home, full of bumper-to-bumper traffic, I was a little on the ‘grumpy’ side. Since I wasn’t driving, I had basically spent the hour being frustrated that we weren’t moving and slowly getting more and more sleepy. If I had closed my eyes for two seconds, I would’ve been ouuut.

Rather than jumping into bed at 6 p.m., I decided to have a cup of the iced coffee in the fridge–hellooo, wake up!–and head out for a little run. Whew. That’s easily the best way to end a long day. A jolt of legal stimulant and 5 miles of ‘letting it out’. Yesssss.

When I got back I had absolutely zero desire to cook. None. At allll. And since our fridge is bordering on empty anyway, I made the only thing that sounded soooo good. Nuggets & fries. Not ‘healthy’, not fresh, not any of the things we tell you to eat. But, yet, delicious. Then we made a batch of Peanut butter-cup Brownies. From a box. Granted, those are actually for the co-workers tomorrow (it’s our last day as interns as this current “location”). But don’t you think we didn’t lick the bowl. Yummmmm.



  1. so could one with a degree in nutritional sciences make me a diet plan to loose some lbs?!??

  2. I treated myself to nuggets and fries yesterday too – I told myself that it was because it was my last day of the quarter, but really it was laziness.
