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!
