I work in an office with that has a refridgerator so I can bring healthy food from home, but if I forget, I just head over to the grocery store and pick up a salad, some turkey or chicken and fruit. I have no excuses for anything less than healthy.

Best, Stacy

I work in a hospital, and we have our own little tea room on the unit. We have no cooking facilities there tho, and I tend to order a salad from outside or take something small from home, like a Tuna Quick lunch or a box of Slim a Soups, a yoghurt, or fruit. My main problem is that when I'm at work, I tend to pick whatever I find, and this isn't good. So it's best to plan ahead if you can and take something with you.

I work in an office environment, so I keep peanut butter, whole wheat bread, and whole wheat crackers in my filing cabinet. I keep cheese cubes and baby carrots in the fridge. The nice thing about this is that I can get to them easily, but I can't get to anything unhealthy easily!

Hey Jen - nice name emoticon

I know how you feel! I work at Starbucks (hence my username) and there are always so many yummy (unhealthy, calorie-laden) food and beverage items that I can have FOR FREE. It's hard to resist the temptation to eat them because they are already prepared, and are so convenient.

I also used to work at a grocery store. On my 15minute breaks I would usually buy fruit salad from the deli or a tray of veggies (or premade veggie salad) from produce. I'd combine that with low fat turkey from the deli and voila! Healthy yumminess that will keep you satisfied! You could also try a small milk and some fruit or granola bar. Or how about brining your own snacks/dinners?

Hope this helps! emoticon

Ok so I work at a grocery store and I have a hard time eating right on my breaks, I've heard the line "it's a grocery store there's stuff all around to eat" the truth is there is really not, there's food there but mostly food that needs to be prepared and the foods that aren't are the unhealthy ones like fried chicken. Any suggestions on how I can eat right at work on my short 15 minute breaks?
