Just over a week ago my colleagues and I had to move offices to make way for some exciting new attractions that are being built in our area. We have been adjusting to our beautiful new office space and and also exploring all of our new “lunch options” near our new location.
I smell bad decisions…
While there are so many amazing new restaurants to try, both sit down and fast food, I know that I am going to have to turn up the will power moving forward. Summer is fast approaching, my friends.
I’ve decided to stock my office fridge with some healthier lunch options that won’t break the bank (eating out every day is expensive!) and that will also give me some much needed energy so I am not dragging by 2PM.
Introducing one of my new favorite “Super Foods”… this Spinach*Pow salad by elevĀte. Packed with 11 grams of protein and only 250 calories it is now a delicious addition to my lunch choices.
One tip that really helps me is that I start my day with one of my “Go Green Smoothies” then I eat lunch at 11AM. That way, by the time everyone is gearing up to head out for lunch at about Noon, I am not hungry and I am able to resist the urge to go try that new burger place.
Loaded with chicken, almonds, and cranberries – so good! I then have a piece of fruit or some nuts and a little cheese around 2 or 3PM and I am good to go until dinner at home.
You can find elevĀte salads at Walmart – and they are on roll back prices through 5/17 so I have stocked up on several to last me through the week.
There are quite a few varieties including “blu*rugula”, “sunny caesar” and, the one that I can’t wait to try next, the “southwest” which has fire roasted corn, black beans and crunchy tortilla strips! Yum.
I’d love to hear about your favorite super foods and lunch options as well so make sure to leave me a comment below!
