Meatless Wednesday and eating healthy at work.

So, I didn’t try to make this a meatless Wednesday, but now that I look back on today’s eats, they are sans meat. (Side note: I remember learning what “sans” meant in Mr. Paul’s English class. He was one of my favorite teachers…along with Ms. Bacon.) <——wow, that was quite the tangent. πŸ™‚

Breakfast was leftover pancakes topped with almond butter and agave nectar. The key to eating leftover pancakes is to reheat them in the toaster. You're welcome.

After a very sweaty and grueling x-fit class (lots of squats, jump squats, burpees, wall sits, push ups), I devoured a veggie burger with cheese and carrots and cucumbers on the side. I also had a Greek yogurt.

My snack was a chocolate brownie and oats bar from Trader Joe’s…it hit the spot.

Annabelle was a super good baby tonight and she let me cook dinner without too many interruptions…and no climbing on the tables/couch/chairs. πŸ™‚ I had Minestrone soup and croissants and it was the perfect rainy night meal.

Annabelle wanted her dinner to be featured as well…chicken nuggets and mixed veggies. πŸ™‚

Even though my day was meatless, I don’t believe it will remain ice cream-less. LOL.

Sometimes it can be really difficult to eat healthy at the work place. This is especially true around the holidays. Here are few tips for keeping healthy eating habits at work.

Eating Healthy at Work

1. Pack breakfast, lunch, and snacks. It is so easy and convenient to stop and get breakfast on the way to work or go out for lunch everyday. However, this can deplete your wallet and add to your waistline. Try to pack meals that are high in protein and good fats and that include lots of fruits and veggies.

2. Plan for special occasions. If you are having a work party or a celebratory lunch with coworkers, make sure to plan really healthy meals for the rest of the day and drink lots of water. Make sure to stop eating when you are full and your leftovers can serve as your dinner or the next day’s lunch.

3. Water! Drink lots of water all day long. Sometimes we confuse thirst for hunger and we eat when we aren’t really hungry. Drinking water is also great for your overall health.

Favorite workday lunch?

How many days a week do you eat meat? How about ice cream? πŸ™‚
