~ DAY 17 ... Slow Carb (4HB) Challenge ~

Thursday, June 13, 2013

... just about every day at my job there are snacks and leftovers from faculty meetings and workshops. While it is great that the library gets to enjoy these gourmet foods & desserts, for someone like me, it is very challenging and in a way annoying. emoticon ... Today they brought us cookies, French bread / butter, potato salad, some kind of pasta dish, thinly sliced beef and salmon that looked like it had been poached. When I tasted it, it had way too much oil in it, I really don't know how they prepared it, but I didn't like it. They did however, have a vegetable dish that looked interesting... roasted baby asparagus paired with orange and yellow heirloom tomatoes on a bed of lentils. It was dressed with a balsamic/basil type dressing that was delicious. My co-workers didn't seem to like this dish, maybe is was too "healthy", I don't know, but anyway, there was more than enough for me to be able to eat some for a snack at work and I brought some home for dinner... "can you guess what's going on my shopping list for this week!!!! emoticon

    I'm glad there was something at work that you could eat. Most of it other than what you chose sounded horrible.

    I have the same problem at the bridge club. Only usually the snacks are never healthy. There is this dentist who keeps bringing in these mini chocolate bars, all my old childhood favorites like Kit Kat, Smarties and Aero. Its so easy to take one here and there, but they sure add up in a hurry. So we get left over candy, chocolate and cakes from any special occasion and they get cleaned up quick. That asparagus dish was a great find so yummy! Too bad about the salmon, would have been awesome if it had been prepared in a healthy manner.
    Fantastic fitness!
    Keep up the great work!

    I know your frustration about having people bring in snacks and goodies. The good news is you are strong and have a great plan in place.

    Lentils are my favorite. One of my favorite dishes to make is lentil bolognese. emoticon
