Calling it Lunch

Hi Guys!  I hope your week is going well and you're getting excited for another weekend.  Yep, I begin my weekend countdown on Monday.  That's the life of an office drone.  Speaking of working in an office, I have the luxury of using the kitchen and throwing together whatever food I bring with me and calling it 'lunch'.
Today I had sprouted grain bread, 2 hardboiled eggs, a laughing cow wedge, and mustard.  I got this:
Voila!  An egg salad sandwich, open-faced because that always gives you two sandwiches. 
If you can't already tell, I get looks, comments, and other gestures when I make lunch in the kitchen.  I think it's kinda funny.  I fully embrace my role as the smelly kid at work.

I learned how to do a new project that was supposed to take me 4 hours at about 2:00 PM. I had another apple and peanut butter thinking of the task and trying not to panic (apple count = 1). I thought I would be doomed for another night at work, but to my delight and sudden strike of genius, I was able to complete the whole thing in 90 minutes, so I was off!  I hit up the gym with hubby for chest and tris and an interval run:

Cardio: 25 minutes alternating 6.0, 6.3, and 5.5- it was heart pumping good!
Chest and tris: 3 different chest machines (don't know or care what they are called) and pushups that I could barely complete.  I did skullcrushers for tris as well as cables.

When we got home, I hit up the pickle jar and had two while my veggies heated up.  It's also important to note that I had not had a single vegetable until this point. Don't judge me.  Dinner made up for it:
3 cups spinach wilted in the microwave topped with asparagus, marinara sauce, sugar snap peas, kale chips with nooch.
I can't show you the size of the bowl, but it's huge.  I believe this would be my first opportunity for a 'That's What She Said' joke.  I'll restrain myself (TWSS).

I also worked on my apple quota (apple count = 2):
And my sugar quota:

Thank you Katie for the mini eggs- they are delightful!

Oh, and I'm not the only one who eats around here.  I worked on a salad for the hubby's lunch tomorrow.  It's got a little of everything and is made for a manly appetite:
Spinach, a hardboiled egg, BBQ baked chicken, roasted asparagus, cheese, roasted red peppers, cucumbers, almonds and I can't remember what else.  It's dressed with some vinaigarette. 
There may be other ingredients, but I can't remember.

I should do some stuff like shower and get to bed so I can try to fall asleep for two hours.  I still can't adjust to the new time.  Is anyone else staying up late?

Questions for you: 
1.) What same food do you eat multiple times a day?  Apples, almond butter, spinach, yogurt and um...chocolate sometimes.
2.) If you have a significant other/roomie/bestie/pet that lives with you, what foods are they obsessed with? Chocolate, cheese (almost any kind will do, but laughing cow and whatever I am eating at the moment are the favorites), hummus, and yoplait yogurt.

See you soon!

What is it about M&M's that make me crave them whenever I see a pic?

I eat apples several times a day...definitely the biggest staple in my diet! My parents are the same way, so we go through a LOT!

Happy St. Patty's chica!

Andrea@CeleryITCity said...

I eat hummus multiple times a day..I could eat it with any meal. I do that all the time..re:not eating a veggie until dinner, sometimes I don't notice until I look at my pictures from the day of food and think..YIKES, veggies tonight!

Anne Marie said...

My hubby is obsessed with ice cream! It's insane in our house!

Mom on the Run said...

I can eat almonds and strawberries multiple times a day.

My husband loves meat. He would prefer just having meat all day long.

Mo Diva said...

can you please make me a salad? My problem is that i love GUY food... LOL

PamperME said...

Hi Mansana--I love your open faced egg creation! That looks delicious. I only eat them once a day, but I could eat eggs/Egg Beaters for every meal.

Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) said...

I usually eat almond butter and bananas several times throughout the day. I can't get enough.

LOL I love that you embrace being the smelly kid at work LOL

Mari said...

That egg sammie looks good!

I tend to eat banana and pb multiple times....pb more than I would like to admit! lol

*Naomi* said...

I usually have cheese more than once a day :-)

My hubby likes his fruit and yogurt everyday.

i eat spinach. lotttts.

and i keep an open bag of milk chocolate chips in the house-it's good because that way when i want some sweets i can just have a little instead of going nuts.

josh loves string cheese. he eats at least 2 a day. i don't get it.

I'm laughing about making "weird" things at work, because I think it's great that you break out of the PB&J Sandwich mold (or whatever it is non-foodie people usually bring to work) and aren't embarrassed about it! That egg salad looks delicious too!

Sometimes I feel bad eating something multiple times a day for some reason, but it happens all the time and I really do think it's OK! Yogurt, PB, cereal, oatmeal...basically breakfasty foods because they make great snacks!

i definitely eat hummus & pb multiple times throughout the day :)

my hubby loves cliff bars and doritos... not exactly two foods that go together but i'm working on removing doritos as a staple from his diet!

Gina said...

I actually bring tuna with me as an "on the go snack" and people thing I am so weird. I don't think I ever get tuna breath...maybe I am also the office smelly kid! haha, even though I don't work in an office...
I love your egg sandwich idea, actually. I would make one of those if eggs didn't give me FOUL gas.

Foods I eat everyday: chocolate (a couple times) granola (all day long) and peanut butter (all day long) oh, and sweet potatoes!

Nick eats peanut butter all day, he's addicted. It's official.
