Working Girl!

Good morning! I apologize for being a terrible blogger this week I am still trying to figure out a good balance between working full time, blogging andddddd…
PARTYING!!! I’m still recovering from St. Patty’s day festivities
I also have been trying to get back into the swing of eating healthy and bringing healthy lunches to work.
Here are some breakfast, lunch and snack ideas that are perfect for during the work week. They are also easy to pack and bring to work, all you need to do is plan ahead!
Breakfast:
Yogurt Fage Total 0% Greek yogurt with fruit on the side 130 calories  light, creamy & packed with protein Mmmmm
Oatmeal
365 organic oats and flax instant oatmeal with 1 packet of truvia, freeze dried bananas, and raisins

I keep a box of instant oatmeal at my desk and make it with hot water. I add whatever I’m in the mood for to my oats. It’s easy and filling!


Fruit, yogurt & granola

my co-worker Brittany brings fruit (grapes), granola, and yogurt for breakfast. It looked so yummy I had to take a picture of it!


Lunch: My new favorite kitchen staple is rotisserie chicken (you can find them at your local grocery store). I cut the the white meat into small chunks and put it in a tupperware container in the fridge. I then use the chicken in salads, soups, or sandwiches. Here are a couple examples…
BBQ Ranch salad
1/2 cup of chopped roticerie chicken, reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese, corn, beans, avocado, and homemade 50 calorie tortilla strips!
I cut a corn tortilla into 2 inch strips and baked them in a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes (or until crispy)

dressing
2 tbsp of fat free ranch and 1 tbsp of BBQ sauce

Soup
Trader Joe’s Black Bean Soup
+
shredded rotisserie chicken
a comforting & filling meal

Other ideas…
Last night I cooked up a big pot of vegetable soup. I put the soup into portioned tupperware containers and put them in the freezer. Now I have homemade soup to bring for lunch whenever I want!SO easy!
If you’re not a fan of rotisserie chicken deli sliced turkey breast is a great protein option. I make sure to have the deli man/woman slice the turkey very thin!  I love to make turkey sandwiches (sandies) on Arnold Thins, Bagel Thins, or Deli Flats.
Snacks:Since my snack post, I’ve been making sure to bring snacks to work. Here’s what I’ve been bringing…
100 calorie dark chocolate almonds
Kind Bars Dark chocolate cherry cashew  Peanut butter dark chocolate They taste like a candy bar and are GOOD for you!
Dole Fruit Crisp
I’m obsessed!
 throw this bowl of fruity goodness into the microwave for 30 seconds then add the crumbly topping. 150 calorie happiness
I hope this post makes up for my slacking.
Thank you for being such loyal and patient readers, I love you all!
