Am I destined for a sad desk lunch on busy days?
So here it is – lunch time and you don’t have anything to eat. I know, I know… you woke up late, had to rush in, then meetings, and that budget report is also due today. I understand. We’ve all been there. But you’re still hungry and need to eat. So, what do you do?
The solution doesn’t have to be perfect and you aren’t destined for a sad desk lunch. If we take a GOOD, BETTER, BEST approach we can find a way to get through the day without derailing your healthy eating.
You planned ahead and stashed some oatmeal packets and dried fruit at your desk. Yeah, it might be boring, but it sure beats dining on French fries and candy. All that matters are that it’s quick and will hold you over for a few more hours.
Do you have enough time to rush to the SUB? Choices can be difficult there with many high calorie options. Employee Wellness is here to help! Check out our UNM Healthy Eats for healthy suggestions at each of the SUB restaurants.
Enlist the help of a trusted friend. Ask them if they can run out and get you something good. Maybe a grilled chicken salad or a turkey sandwich and an apple. Then pay them back when it’s their turn to have a busy day.
Remember, healthy eating isn’t about being perfect. We just have to do pretty well most of the time. Try out this GOOD, BETTER, BEST approach to help find options and stay on track even on your busiest days.
