Burritos, Yogurt and A Cubicle
This week we have been moving to another office building and it has been insane. Nothing was organized, clean or working when we got to the new space, so it has been a weird week. But I do have a shiny new cubicle now and I am just so excited you have no idea. Haha.
I saw these Evol burritos at the grocery store the other day. The packaging caught my eye and they were decently priced so I grabbed a few for mornings when I was low on time. I’m glad I did because they are so good. I just throw one in my purse and microwave it at work.. you seriously couldn’t tell it was a frozen burrito. It was only 230 calories, 3.5g of fat, 6g fiber & 12g protein!
My lunches have been really good at work too and I loved today’s menu: eggplant w/marinara, steamed zucchini, squash, broccoli & carrots, asian veggies, rice, green beans and mashed potatoes. I may have went a lil’ crazy with lunch today, but everything was lookin’ so good that I just couldn’t help it. Those aren’t my plates in the background by the way.. I wasn’t that hungry :]
After lunch we moved and organized some more and I treated myself to a frozen yogurt. I got tart yogurt with blackberries, strawberries and blueberries. MMM! It was so good!
After work I was checking my bookmarked blogs when I saw that Pretty Fit, Pretty Healthy had tagged me for this lil’ survey! I was so happy because it is definitely one of my favorite healthy living blogs.. thanks for the tag! :]
Here are the questions to answer:
1. What made you decide to start getting healthy?
I got my current job as a designer at a local university and one of the perks was free lunch in the dining halls. Let’s just say I went a little overboard and took on as many french fries, sodas and greasy foods I could handle. My clothes were getting super tight and I just didn’t feel good. I became friends with our student nutritionist and learned about making healthier choices in the dining halls and got really interested in nutrition, working out & making healthier choices.
2. What’s your idea of a food splurge? Shopping splurge?
Food splurge: I don’t really do food splurges.. I just kinda eat what I want but make sure it all balances out. I’ll eat healthier during that day except for that meal and work out more for instance.
Shopping splurge: I have a hard time splurging when shopping so it would most likely be an essential. I’m actually getting ready to go to Zappos and check out their boots…
3. Someone gave you $1000. Spend it? Save it? Spend it for what/save it for what?
I would probably spend it on fencing in our backyard so Pep can run around and have fun with our neighbors dogs and get rid of some of that energy!
4. What’s your favorite holiday? Why?
I love Halloween! This year was the best because it was our first Halloween in our house so we got to decorate and give out candy to all the trick-or-treaters. Too much fun!
5. What’s your favorite seasonal food? It can be from any season.
Tofurky! Haha, I seriously love that stuff it is way too good.
6. Describe your perfect day off.
Sleeping in a little, heading to the park to walk with my husband & pup, eating good food and watching movies. I’m boring like that, but that sounds perfect right now! :]
Well, I’m off to make a quick stir-fry and hang out with Greg. Tomorrow is a half day at work and then the weekend!Uncategorized | Tags: Lunch, Questions, Recipe | 2 comments
