Isn’t this such a neat sight? This is looking out over the east side of Manhattan and if you look closely enough, the UN is on the left, the second tallest building. I can look at this on my morning runs along the river and just appreciate the city I’m living in.
I also know it’s the holidays, the fall holidays that is, when there are pumpkins on porches (yes porches exist…in the wealthy area around Central Park), cobwebs in store fronts, and aisles upon aisles of Halloween candy in the stores. I broke down and bought a bag of candy corn pumpkins to be sentimental. They were the candies my mom would pack in our lunches when we were little. That and themed Oreos. Oh the good ‘ol days. I’ve also seen a few Christmas commercials and definitely some Thanksgiving decorations, but for now I’m loving the changing of the leaves and sometimes the crisp fall air that surrounds me. We’ve had a bought of humidity and rain, but the past few afternoons have felt wonderful. Many thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting this meetup.
Here’s a look at Monday’s eats (not in order), along with some of my favorites from the weekend. I’ve been working out in the morning, either running or going to 24 Hour Fitness, so breakfast doesn’t occur until I’m in the office. Pretty timely since our office is packed with delicious yogurts, granola, and a wide variety of other goodies. Lately it’s been a yogurt with granola and iced coffee or hot green tea. My morning snack consisted of a green juice, which I picked up from Whole Foods on Sunday.
For lunch I packed pork and green beans, left over from Sunday night’s dinner. A more appealing picture is featured below. As many people know, working in an office can drag a little in the afternoons. It’s important to keep busy, but also get up every so often and stretch your legs. Walking around the office sometimes takes me past the well supplied kitchen and I convince myself in a very Pooh Bear way, it’s time for a snack.
Jumping back to the top right is my take on dinner. Some roasted cauliflower and onion, sauteed kale, and a little artichoke pizza from the weekend. Dinner usually usually occurs around 7:30 or 8 once I’ve walked home, decompressed, and changed into some Nike outfit.
What do your days at work look like? What do you eat for lunch at work?
