I try to eat healthy and for the most part, I do. It’s pretty funny at lunch time at the office. I don’t like to eat out for lunch for several reasons, one, it’s expensive; and two, not always healthy, and if you do eat healthy, it’s more expensive. So, each week I haul in the makings of both breakfast and lunch for the week. I don’t have time in the morning to make lunch so I bring in a week’s worth of supplies and make it here. It’s fresher that way too.
For breakfast I eat plain yogurt (often homemade), to which I add frozen fruit, usually blueberries and peaches, a few spoonfuls of canned pineapple, a banana and about a cup of high fiber cereal. Lunch is varied, sometimes sandwiches, but often salads. This week it’s been chef salads. Constructing my lunches are a bit of a production and our kitchen is really only a galley kitchen so it gets tight in there. Most everyone else who bring their lunch eat microwavable dinners. They never fail to comment on how healthy I eat or how good my meals look. This is nothing new, everywhere else I’ve worked I did the same thing and got the same comments. My lunches are all very easy to make, probably less expensive than their microwavable dinners and surely healthier. I wonder what people did before the advent of microwavable dinners.
I know a lot of people who prepare raw food for their dogs and cats who say that their animals eat better than they do. That’s sad, it really is. It is a little more effort to eat healthy and to avoid processed food, but I think it is worth the extra time.
