What’s the first thing I consumed after Sandy left town?
Chai Latte. Nectar of the Gods. All is well. My prayers are with all of those adversely affected by the storm, and my irreverent banter will return once I finally get the family to finish all these leftovers!
Since I have another rehearsal tonight, I’ve decided to adjust my meal schedule. I let my high protein breakfast (eggs and bacon) tide me over as long as possible. I then decided to go to my favorite place and get a late lunch/early dinner so I don’t fall out (or off) stage.
So, Chipotle to the rescue! I got myself a salad (no rice or beans) with carnitas and chicken, lots of mild salsa (which is really pico de gallo) and guacamole. Lots of veggies, protein, and healthy fat. Very satisfying and the time adjustment means I SHOULD be able to get through tonight’s dress rehearsal without incident.
Of course if you hear sirens coming from our theater district, all bets are off!
