My packed schedule means sometimes, I have to eat on the run. While the first day of the challenge was easy because I prepared all my meals at home (or brought from home to work), the days since then have been more of a challenge. Tuesday lunch was at a restaurant, and so was Wednesday dinner (in both cases, it was pretty easy to get the necessary protein/complex carb/veggies mix off the menu).
Today, I needed to find a to-go option as I was traveling from one meeting to the next (the second was a BYO lunch). I opted for Mediterranean, always a favorite for me. Lamb kebab brought me the variety from chicken I was craving, while the kale salad and spicy hummus were great sides to round out the meal.
You’ll notice no pita bread…that’s because I gave up bread for Lent! Just 2 more weeks without it, and then I will reincorporate wheat bread since I’ll be finishing my last few challenge days after Easter. I miss it less than I did at the beginning, but it’s pretty tough to eat out and pick bread-free options. I do not envy my friends who have to be gluten-free!
