Eating Well at Work
I work in a pharmacy (as a pharmacist) every Monday and even though I dispense a lot of drugs, I'm personally more a preventative health kinda gal. Charlotte was discussing this in her blog post this evening, interesting stuff about elevated LDLs - I also have borderline blood cholesterol issues (but my HDL:LDL ratios are excellent) so it will be really interesting to see the results of my next lot of tests - as I'm really continuing to pick up my dietary act. I was feeling a little bit blue about the prospect of another 8 hour day on my feet and making up this rainbow of colours really lifted my spirits.
On the menu today:
Breakfast: oats (rich in beta glucan which can help control blood cholesterol), protein powder and added fibre.
Morning tea: Googie egg on slice of spelt toast. I start work at 10am and don't get to eat lunch until 2pm and this really kept me full and on top of my game.
Lunch: Prawn, coriander and vegetable stirfry with chilli and a smidge of brown rice (experimenting with more starchy carb to keep me feeling full)
Afternoon tea: Tuna salad with balsamic vinegar
Pre dinner: Pumpkin Soup (Homemade) with Cracked Pepper.
Munched on a couple of strawberries as well.
Dinner: Angus fillet steak, small corn cob, steamed greens, blueberries mixed with a little Metabolic Drive.
Looking forward now to seven days pharmacy free and hitting the training hard tomorrow.
