I have always been a “go out to eat at lunch” kinda girl when working full time, until recently. Since I dedicated myself to eating clean, I’ve learned that I need to bring food to work with me in order to do so. I need to eat every 2-3 hours and there isn’t much you can get on the go or in my cafeteria at work, that is “clean”.
Every Sunday, I prep my food for the week. I usually put all the food into their appropriate portion sizes and into tupperware or Ziploc bags. The night before I go to work, I grab a bag and throw in all the food I need. It’s so much easier this way!
I had my bag of food ready to go and my boyfriend picked it up. He was SHOCKED by how heavy it was for just the day from 7:30 – 4pm. I thought it would be funny to see how much food I bring to work by putting it on the scale ..
I bring almost 3 1/2 lbs of food to work every day. That’s a lot of food!!!
Here’s a look at what I brought to work today (4 meals worth).
Left column – Meal 1 – Oats, egg whites, orange (natural peanut butter not pictured)
Middle left column – Meal 2 – Greek Yogurt, Blueberries, celery, carrots, kashi cereal
Middle right column – Meal 3 – Spinach salad, 1 egg white, strawberries, salsa chicken, 1 slice of Ezekiel bread
Right column – Meal 4 – brussel sprouts, protein cookie/muffin, orange, (almonds not pictured). I know that’s a strange combo! I just grabbed any combo of veggie, protein, fat & starch..and that’s what happened today.
Do you bring your food to work every day or are you an eat lunch out type of person?
Yesterday I made some salsa chicken in the crock pot. I love coming home to a fully prepared meal! It smelled so good too!
I put the salsa chicken in some romaine leaves to act as taco shells and topped with some greek yogurt to act as sour cream. It was sooo good and I’m excited to have it again tonight for dinner.
I’ve been eating my breakfast cookies and they taste SO good with some natural peanut butter over them. OMG I want one now!
Over the weekend, it was Cinco de Derby day and of course I was going to celebrate! I celebrated with a couple cervezas and a hat..even though my hat was not derby appropriate..it was one of the only ones I had. I tried to pull it off….
Then we went to our local casino/track to place some bets on the Kentucky Derby. I took off the hat for the race track..don’t worry!
I made about 4 bets and didn’t win a damn penny. Stupid #19 horse..you blew it for me.
I tried this new beer on Saturday – It’s Jimmy buffett’s beer called Landshark. It tasted a bit like Corona. I’ll try anything that has to do with Buffett! I love him! If you’ve never been to one of his concerts…I totally recommend it!
- #5 Try 6 new beers (5/6 completed)
I’ve been asked by a couple people how my fur-babies are doing after their big surgery day. They are doing well and thanks for asking!!
They have been much more tired than usual..but I’ll blame that on the drugs they are on. Poor babies!
Did you do anything fun for Cinco de Derby day?
