- Avoid hangry meltdowns, plan ahead.
- Never leave the house without snacks and protein boosters.
I work with a lot of nutrition professionals so if this happens to me, I imagine that it has happened to almost everyone. You provide your dietary restrictions far in advance and on the day of the event are handed bowl of leaves. I’m not an ungrateful person; but, leaves do not equal lunch.

I recently finished a huge academic project, a dietetic internship (a form of professional hazing that aspiring registered dietitians must complete prior to being permitted to take the registration exam). During this process my schedule was so slammed I successfully delegated all domestic duties to my partner. But now that I’ve officially finished and I have massive amounts of free time, I’ve come to the realization that my reluctance to camp out in the kitchen had nothing to do with time constraints. It’s just not my jam; and, life is too short to dedicate massive amounts of time to shit that bores you. That said, my reluctance to spend time in the kitchen is a major obstacle to maintaining a nutritious cruelty free diet. Since I have not yet been able to convince my husband to permanently add cooking for me to his already lengthy list of domestic duties, I’ve started looking at ways to keep my kitchen time minimal while avoiding eating out daily. Every meal I’ll post during vegan month of food is going to reflect those goals.
