How do we eat healthy at work. . .
How do we eat healthy at work? It is very difficult when you are surrounded by sweets, treats and quick grab vending machines. Being sent home to work remote was the best thing that ever happened to me. I am able to fix my own meals and I am not tempted by the monthly cake squares we used to get.
Meal prep is the key. . .
When I worked in the office, meal prep was the key. Fixing a few days in advance always helped me stay prepared to go to work. Working twelve hour days you cannot just take your lunch, you need breakfast and a good snack too.
This is a fabulous chicken and rice soup my hubbs made this morning.
One of the chicken pies the hubbs made too.
The Hubbs and his chicken soup and chicken pie. . .
