Hey fellow Sparkers,
I'm looking for some input. Sunday (the 27th) is our big annual fundraiser at church. I work the kitchen and am lucky to get one or two 5 minute breaks to eat, simply because we tend to be really short staffed and those in charge of the kitchen have to limit who works there do to the stress levels.
In the past, I've usually just eaten what's there and tried to ignore the calories, but bratwurst, instant mashed potatoes made with butter, canned green beans cooked with bacon AND butter, canned corn cooked with butter, white bread and cake or pie just doesn't appeal to me as much as it did in the past.
There will be no extra refrigerator or freezer space that day and the microwave will be unusable. Here's what I'm thinking: I'll pack an insulated lunch sack with a couple of frozen bottles of water, some baby carrots, maybe a yogurt or a Kashi bar. I'd really love some other ideas to help keep my out of all that stuff that my body doesn't need.
