Temptations Lurking at Work!

Work drives me crazy for many reasons. One of the main reasons is food. OMG! You would think it is a health maintenance organization we eat healthy. Not always the case. Lets start with cinnamon buns in the break room this morning. Lunch ,Mr Pickles sandwiches and potato chips. This is the average lunch provided for us during meetings. I forgot the cookies. Afternoon snacks were brownies provided by nurse. Did I mention candy bars by the dollar? We have several candy boxes floating around for school fund-raisers. How can I stay healthy around this? This was just today. I haven’t started on pot luck and pizza parties for meeting goals. It’s not easy. I have learned to say no,thank you. I bring my lunch and my snacks. We do have fruit sometimes but they put salt on it!!   The patients bring gigantic  coffee concoctions. Help me! I just keep saying no but some days its hard.

Vega is vile!!!

In my quest for new things I tried Vega. That was just plain gross. In fairness I did the sport mix. Yuck! It’s supposed to be vanilla flavored. Not! I tried Raw Protein and Amazing Meals so far this week. The amazing meal is hands down the winner for taste. It doesn’t have as much protein as Vega but I can work on that. Stay tuned. I’m always trying new stuff.

Ok, so I’m down for trying new things especially if they are healthy. I made a trip to Whole Paycheck I mean foods:). I went to the  Whole Foods Sacramento store. I was in town for a family event.Wow ,I love this store. So much more variety than the San Ramon one. I decided to try Lighten up 3 Grain Tempeh. Ewe ! Yuck that was gross. I cooked according to directions. I’ll stick to tofu. I love tofu. I’m trying a few other things. Amazing Grass’s Amazing Meal. It has protein, fruits and vegetables.  You can mix with water milk or juice. I’ll probably try milk . I don’t drink juice. I’ve never been a fan. I really don’t like sweet stuff  except for chocolate . I think it will be good for a snack. I’ll keep you posted. I didn’t buy the big bottle just single packs. My daughter liked the fruit and veggie section.We left with bananas, golden raspberries and  Barbara’s peanut butter cereal. It was time to go when she hit the cheese department. Mom I hate this part! It stinks. What are your new food finds?
