Another Wednesday, another WIAW. Except that usually I’d expect to be sharing mugs of hot cocoa to stave off the winter chill, when in reality we’ve been having a bit of an Indian Summer spell this December in New York City and what I’d really like most of the time is a bowl of fresh berries! Which luckily I got this week, at breakfast for a work seminar. I had a slice of smoked salmon quiche beforehand since it’s usually just bagels, but the fruit was a nice surprise.
For lunch, one of my usual work salads. Every week my department has a lunch, and every week they bring me a salad of mixed greens, grilled chicken, and olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the side. Boring to be sure, but I can’t be too safe with food prepared while I’m at work.
Plus I had quite a decadent mid-afternoon snack to cheer up my palate. A Banana Bread Blondie topped with a Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Everything totally grain free but mouthwateringly delicious, especially since I warmed it a bit and had it with an (iced) decaf coffee!
I had eggs again for dinner. I’ve been eating eggs so much lately because frittatas are so easy to bring to work for breakfast or lunch, and sometimes when I get home I’ve had such a long day I’ve forgotten the earlier meals and want them again! Plus I really wanted something cheesy for dinner. Even though I’m eliminating most grains, I am eating dairy again in moderation, and a bit of Cheddar makes everything better. So I had some of my Veggie Feta Frittata, with the Cheddar melted on top of it and the baby red potatoes I made as a side.
And another brownie for dessert finished off the day, along with an apple (both are old photos since I was too tired to remember to take some). You didn’t think there would be a day without an apple, did you? 🙂
Do you ever find yourself eating the same food for multiple meals in a day?
What are your work lunch staples?
