Your Enemies at Work

Do you find it difficult to eat healthy while at work? Do vending machine like those taunt you with their sweet and salty treats? Well, have no fear! I have a new contraption that will save your plan from diet disaster!

It is the refrigerator. Ok, so the "contraption" is not so new or my own- but you cannot debate the fact that it is one of the most integral tools for staying on plan while you are at work.

Packing your own meals from home is much more healthy for your waistline and your wallet than anything these machines have to offer.

I know what you're thinking... "I don't have time for all that!" My response is... Really? Are you sure?

Here is my lunch for today...

Easy little package



Fruit, veggies, hummus

Melba toast, apple, 2 wedges of Laughing Cow, and what was 12 almonds

I put this together this morning and it took me about 10 minutes with all the chopping, digging out containers and actually deciding on what to make. Not bad!

Ok, so what about the people who work at a place with NO fridge? There are a few option- insulated lunch bags or mini coolers. A Thermos to keep soup warm. We just need to be more resourceful when our workplace is less than accommodating to our weight loss plans.

Enjoy your lunches!
