Working in a restaurant has its challenges. For instance, all of the delicious tempting foods at your disposal.. that you serve all night.. that call your name. Especially the buttery ooey gooey doughy cinnamon sugar covered croissants that are at your fingertips. When I first began working there, I avoided eating there at all costs. But then I started closing at night and I just could not keep the hunger at bay long enough so I give in. Quite frequently nowadays. BUT, it’s the same thing as if you were eating out daily. It makes me feel… BLAH. So I am making an effort to eat as good as I can when I can and eat mostly at home. And at work, stick to the veggie side dishes and salads.
In any case, some foods that I’ve been enjoying lately that are tasty AND good for me..
Homemade spaghetti with ground turkey and mushrooms made by my mom!
Waffles. With blackberries. Had you any doubt?
With a side of yogurt and banana..
Apples and pb..
With a veggie burger on toast.. yum!
Kashi cereal.. yep, the one with the sogginess problem.
Oats topped with cereal
TJ’s light mac and cheese.. YUM!
Overnight oats topped with mixed berries and TJ’s flax peanut butter
A yogurt mess with Kashi cereal (that I totally forgot the name of), yogurt, and banana.
Waffles topped with peanut butter, banana, and fake syrup
A yogurt mess with a Whole Foods low fat Blueberry Muffin
Overnight oats again with peanut butter and frozen strawberries
A yogurt mess with banana, ground flax, Kashi Honey Sunshine, and yogurt.
And now for a question.. with my busy life lately, I haven’t been to the gym in oh… weeks and weeks?! I try to fit in little mini strength training sessions at home but I REALLY miss the gym. The only times I have time to go between school and work is RARE and would make for an extremely rushed gym session. And, I would be giving up free/rest time to work out. Should I give up this time for a good sweat session? Also, I’ve never showered AT the gym BUT if this works out, it would mean showering and getting ready at the gym and going straight to work. I know people do this all the time.. how does this work for you? Any advice would be GREAT!
