Stare if you want
Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Today we had a day-long work event with typical low-cost calorie-rich catered food. Lots of pastries, a carb-and-fat-laden lunch buffet, etc. I got a few stares in the line as I put together my lunch, and also while eating, but I didn't mind. I covered my plate with salad greens, then ladled generous scoops of steamed veggies over them. It was the healthiest lunch I could put together and it tasted as good/bad as expected for bulk-cooked sterno-warmed buffet food. Okay, so it looked like a hot-and-cold mess, but I was happy with it.
Tomorrow I have to go out for a work lunch, and all the menu choices are too rich for my good. I'm thinking of being a pest and asking if they can combine two or three of the healthier sides to make a customized dish for me. Not sure if they will do that, and I hope they won't spit in my food for asking!
