Teacher Appreciation Week (aka "Carb/Sugar Week")

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I work in an elementary school and I hate complaining about Teacher Appreciation Week but I'm going to anyway. Apologies in advance to all the parents who work SO hard to make it a nice week for us.

Yesterday's teacher breakfast was about 85% bad carbs: muffins, donuts, bagels, coffee cakes, crumbles, you name it. There was only one protein provided and it was a store-bought quiche, so therefore loaded with fat. There was a large platter of fresh fruit, thank goodness. I'm sure the parents think they are "treating" us with all the sugary, fatty choices, but please, how about some yogurt? Some cut-up lowfat cheese? It is SO hard to walk past that food and make healthy choices. Ugh, I think I did okay, but felt bloated and sluggish after.

Tomorrow is the teacher lunch so I will bring a salad as back-up :)

Thanks for listening! And, again, apologies to all the parents; I know you did your best.

  Yes, too bad all that work goes to 'waist', isn't it? Be strong, you are worth it!
