It has been a busy week and I am super excited for the weekend. However, my eating tends to be all over the place on the weekends, so I do actually like Monday’s when I get back into my (mostly) structured eating routine (breakfast – snack – lunch – snack – dinner, as opposed to breakfast – snack snack snack snack – dinner – snack snack ;)).
This week was an exception. It is a meeting-heavy time of year in my office, and we had meetings four days this week. Our council members attend these from across the province, and a meeting is usually almost the entire day. Obviously we need to feed the attendees or it wouldn’t be a very productive meeting, which means staff members who are in the meetings get lunch as well. This also means that even if I am not in the meeting, somehow leftover food will make its way into my office. So in addition to my healthy packed lunch and snacks, I am eating this:
And I can’t forget today’s lunch:
This lunch was seriously the highlight of my week. Chicken with this amazing mango and cilantro salsa, wild rice, baby spinach with berries in a vinaigrette with sunflower seeds, and whole wheat pita plus hummus. AMAZING!
Followed up with this for dessert:
I am not complaining about all this food. I would never complain about an abundance of food! I genuinely enjoy healthy eating: whole grains, fruits and veggies and healthy fats, and I try to make good food decisions as much as I can, but when someone brings up a tray of leftover cookies, danishes, and cheesecake from a meeting and yells out “HEY LINDSEY!!!! There’s tons of food out here! Including COOKIES!!! Help yourself!” well, what’s a girl to do?
