Lunch Buffet: Sometimes Not a Good Thing

Friday, February 22, 2013

Don't get me wrong..the food is good, but there is soooo much of it.
Today I had some pecan-crusted trout and LOTS of grilled veggies (zucchini, squash, bell peppers) and some steamed broccoli, and some mashed sweet potato.

Then I went back for seconds and also dessert. By the time I got to dessert I could not finish it. I left some of the ice cream & cake on the table when I left. Now I am just resting, waiting for the bus to take me back home.

I finally got my food handlers card to work in restaurants in Phoenix. YEE-HAW!! Yeah thats like a person addicted to gambling going to work at the casino, or an alcoholic working in a bar.

    I do not like going to buffets but my hubby likes them so we go once in a while. I try to stay with the salad, fruits and veggie but sometimes it is too temping not to indulge!

    Lunch buffet...or any buffet...I go into almost a trance looking at the beautiful array of food, deciding what to choose from. Seriously if you were there next to me, I wouldn't even hear you talking because-I'd be in serious food dream land. You'd have to shake me to get my attention. So for me its best to not ever go to a buffet at all. I went to the one I think it was at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas...I still remember the incredible array of delicious much to pick from..I can still remember it. -Well that's why I NOT ALLOWED at buffets, LOL. (-meaning I don't allow myself to eat at them..) Congrats on your card but like everyone has said, please keep making the better food're going to be surrounded by food so be strong and think carefully about what you choose. emoticon

    You did great on the veggies it sounds like. Glad you left the ice cream instead of something healthier. That's great that you got your food handlers card.

    I'm with Claire. You left the right food uneaten or halfway eaten and at least finished up the healthier choices.

    At least you ate the trout and left the ice cream and not the other way around!

    I try to avoid buffets...Just don't have much control when faced with so many choices! Sounds like you made some good picks there though, so good for you!

    And congrats on the food handlers card, I never knew such a thing existed!
