It was non-stop at work today, from the moment I walked in until the moment I walked out! Phew was I tired by the time I went home!
BUT, some great things happened during the day….I did NOT give in to food at work!
Why is it there is always so much food there and why is it all junk?
Just to re-cap, here was all the food at the “food table” at work throughout the day.
This was after about 2 hours of this whole table filled with candy!
Then about 10:30, a rep came in and brought pastries/muffins!!
Cookies left over from a luncheon!
And left over sandwiches from the luncheon.
The old me would have had the candy and a muffin and probably a cookie for about 1,000 calories (or more!), but today, I walked right by. I can’t promise myself I’ll do that every day, but at least I know that I can do it!
*How do you avoid temptation at work??
Maybe one reason I was able to not eat that junk is because I brought good food today.
1/2 cup oats
2 TB. ground flax seed
drizzle of sugar free syrup
400 calories and 10 grams of fiber!
For lunch, I brought one of the soups that the nice people at Dr. McDougall’s right foods gave me. It is a great food find, and if you haven’t tried any of their new ready to made soups, it is so worth it! I love black bean soup, and I couldn’t wait to try it.
There are a few reasons why I liked this soup. You get a BIG portion. That box is 2 servings, but each serving is only 120 calories, 1 gram of fat and 5 grams of fiber, so I ate the whole thing!
The second thing I liked is that they added brown rice to it, which made the texture great. I could also see green pepper, onion, carrots, as well. I just added a little hot sauce because I like it spicy! It really filled me up.
So far, my family has tried the chunky tomato soup, the black bean, and lentil and they’ve all gotten a thumbs up.
Check out their website to learn more about their company. Most products are vegetarian or vegan or gluten free. Around the Chicago-land area, I know you can buy them at Whole Foods.
Have a great Friday everyone!
