Also, hunger is the best spice.. people complain about hospital food, but it's similar to army food and so I can handle it easily... and I carry three things on me at all times that arm me with delicious everywhere I go: Fruit seasoning (Amazon.com : Valentina Fruit Seasoning 140 Gr : Mexican Seasonings : Grocery & Gourmet Food Ignore that price tag, they're $2 a piece at the local mexican grocery store!) which gives a tiiny hint of spice but no real heat and lots of citrus-y flavor aaaand won't explode and get everything wet when the lid pops off unlike hot sauce... Mrs. Dash for very similar reasons... And a truffle oil food spray and truffle salt (Amazon.com : QO Infused TRUFFLE Olive Oil Spray - All Natural - 125 ml/4.2 fl.oz - Product of Italy : Grocery & Gourmet Food this is the closest I could find that compares... but it is a different brand and I got them discounted at the resell grocery store).. I keep a make-up bag with this stuff, plus some sauces I like (like whenever I go to chik-fil-a I get an extra sauce or two to stick in my bag) so that whenever I get food I don't have to worry about if it's bland or not. It's always in my backpack at work with me.
Theoretically, I could just stop spending money on food entirely on the days I work, and steal all the meal trays from the hospital that would be trashed anyways. But for now, I'll be going to night shift, so I won't get meal trays anymore when I switch over. Boooooo..
