Feeding My Brain

My corporate overlords sent me to this totally kickass conference today, and then tonight, I have double band practice. Woot! St. Joe’s Choir first, then Peter Elliott & the Sellouts… then collapse into bed, I bet.

The biggest responsibility I had today was worrying about what I was going to eat for lunch, and it turns out, the hotel-supplied meal was very Zone-friendly.

I skipped the bowl of lettuce and made a salad of cucumber slices, tomato wedges, a little cotijo cheese, and a tiny drizzle of ranch dressing.

I passed the soup, the Spanish rice, and the tortilla chips in favor of a small spoonful of pinto beans, beef fajitas, and salsa.

I didn’t even make eye contact with the pyramid of slices of chocolate cake. When I was finished with my plate, I ate half the apple I brought with me.

So… whew! It’s a nutrition minefield out here, people, but I think successfully dodged the food obstacles. And my lunch was pretty good, too!

    And I just finished one half of an apple as well. And it was yummy. So, together, we ate an entire apple! 🙂

    Can’t wait to hear how the conference went.

    “Oh! I am SO full. I ate half an apple today… I couldn’t eat another thing!”
