I'm enjoying my evening snack as I type and attempting to get to some homework- let's see how that goes!
I got so excited when I made this and thought the blueberries were so cute:
- Brown Cow Blueberry Greek Yogurt
- Trader Joe's wild frozen blueberries
Mission: One Snack Per DayI've decided to share my daily treat or snack with you to keep me accountable and to share the deliciousness I find! I'll also rate the taste and the 'worth it' factor on a scale of 1 to 10. Here we go!
Today's Snack: I shared a small sesame ball with a coworker and had a bite of a mini tart. I still counted it as one since I didn't finish either of them (sorry, no picture)
Worth it Factor: -10. Both were gross and not worth it at all!
Eating in Groups
Today was a really interesting experience in group dynamics when my office went to lunch at a dim sum restaurant. It's really interesting to see how people discuss foods and their eating habits when they are together. One of my coworkers happened to be a vegetarian and each person eating meat or fish made sure to go out of his or her way to ask if there was enough food, if the vegetarian gentleman was hungry, and what he eats on a normal basis. I found it really interesting because this man seemed to be enjoying himself and eating lots of vegetables, some kind of sticky buns, tofu, and even dessert, yet the people around us could not fathom how he was enjoying a meal without meat.
I narrowly escaped the scrutiny because I ate the items with shrimp in them while avoiding the pork and other mystery meats, but there were still comments made about my portions and choices because they know I am 'healthy'. I know a lot of eating judgment comes from people's curiosity or perhaps discomfort in their own diets. I don't really take it personally and I'm glad to share my philosophy if they ask, but I did find it interesting that one's food choices took over the conversation and he had to justify his lifestyle.
What do you think? Do you have to justify how you eat? I am not scrutinized too badly, but I do have to explain to people that I like healthy food and don't force myself to eat it when they ask!
