Food To Go | Linda Rome

Recently I left my house in the morning armed with a long list of appointments and errands to run. I ate breakfast at home but worried about what I’d do for meals for the remainder of the day. I didn’t want to be forced into choosing somthing that I’d regret later. To borrow a popular phrase, I had an “aha” moment. I decided to pack a bag. I take my lunch to work nearly every day, so I wonder why I never thought about doing the same thing on a non-work day. I included a sliced green apple, a small container of almonds, a protein wafer bar and a powdered protein drink. I knew I wouldn’t eat everything, but I wanted to have a few choices at my disposal. Besides, I was going to be gone from home all day, so I wanted to be prepared. It turns out that was one of the best decisions of the day. I did the same thing this week when I attended a seminar. I didn’t want to appear unprofessional; yet at the same time I wanted to have control over my mid-day meal. I needn’t have worried. I put a few things in a tote bag and no one was the wiser. Now that’s my idea of fast food.
