It’s been a busy 24 hours! I had lots to catch up on, including sleep, so today I “slept in” until 6:30. It sounds so sad to know that 6:30 a.m. is sleeping in, but either way it felt amazing.
Breakfast today was a classic of mine: peanut butter toast with banana slices on top.
I went through a phase where I ate an English muffin topped with peanut butter and banana every day for months. I couldn’t get enough of it! I vary my breakfast a lot more now, but it’s nice to return to a favorite every now and then.
Work and Lunch
Since we moved to our new building a lot of people in my office have been bringing their dogs to work. Someone brought in this little cutie and I literally couldn’t stand how adorable he was!
I wanted to take him home with me, but I’m pretty sure someone else would not be happy with that…….
She’s a jealous little
old lady puppy.
I had a craving for Moe’s Southwest Grill today so I got myself a burrito bowl with chicken, black beans, and rice.
I have to have options for lunch since I work in an office. I can’t go home to cook anything and sometimes I’m running too late to prepare something before I leave. I pack a lunch when I can, but I also have a few go-to options from restaurants. My favorites for eating healthy on the go are:
- Moe’s burrito bowl- By skipping the tortilla, chips, and cheese dip and piling on veggies, I can get a good meal for under 300 calories.
- Subway- I usually pick something along the turkey/wheat/avocado variety and skip the chips.
- Panera- I have an obsession with this place. The managers know me by name! Panera lists calories on the menu so it’s really easy to make healthier choices. Right now I love the Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad.
- Asian restaurants- I usually order chicken and broccoli with brown or steamed rice. I take half in a to-go box so I can get two meals out of it.
