People have always told me that making bad lunch choices leaves a person feeling less then stellar in the afternoon. Well I have a hard time believing what people say unless I experience it first hand. Yesterday was the day I would experience this logic.
The last few lunches I’ve had have been on the healthy side and my body responded well to it. I felt upbeat and energized during the afternoon. However, today I ate greasy food which left me feeling sluggish and tired all night. I really need to start listening to how my body responds when eating certain foods.
Looks like what people told me was spot on and I can now use this info in the future 😉
I didn’t have time to grab anything to eat for breakfast but around 11:00 am I was able to grab a Hot Caramel Apple Cider from Starbucks. This is such a good drink! I always order my cider without the whipped cream. It’s helps cut down the calories and I don’t even miss it 🙂
I’m pretty sure my lunch choice had something to do with the fact that I didn’t eat anything for breakfast. It’s pretty much known that if I skip lunch I’m more likely to make poor lunch decisions.
Wednesday was no exception. I stopped by McDonald’s and got some chicken nuggets which I dipped in buffalo sauce.
and I can’t go to McDonald’s without getting the fries. They were very good!
I tried to offset my unhealthy lunch by having a big salad for dinner.

Exactly the meal I needed to end my day with. Healthy, delicious and satisfying 😀
