“Strange new trend at the office. People putting names on food in the company fridge. Today I had a tuna sandwich named Nick.”
It is SO easy to swing around a drive-thru over the lunch hour when you are crunched for time and are in desperate need of stepping out of the office for some fresh air. And, it is SO easy to think that you are basically throwing in the towel by eating at a fast food restaurant in the first place, so you may as well order something fried and up-size it to a large.
Lots of unhelpful thoughts that can lead to poor food choices!
The unhelpful thought I would like to challenge would be deciding to use fast food in the first place. What ever happened to the ever-so-trusty lunch pail or brown bag? If you have leftovers from the night before, put them in with a cold pack or even assemble a sandwich to feast on over the noon hour.
Making a plan (i.e. packing a lunch) makes eating decisions MUCH easier. I do not, however, recommend snatching Kevin’s tuna sandwich from the community refrigerator…that’s just asking for something fishy to go down.
