Desk Eats

I have a couple different jobs, one being where I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. I tend to use food to break up the day (sorta sad, sorta great) so I snack on various things throughout the work day! They vary from day to day depending on what sounds good/ fits my macros but here is an example of what I eat while at my desk during a day 🙂

First up is some oatmeal. Recently I’ve been having a tough time getting up early enough in the mornings so that I can cook my egg whites and turkey bacon. When that happens I grab one of these oatmeals (that conveniently have their own cup) and eat it at my desk as soon as I get to work. Macros are: 33 carb, 2 fat, 4 protein. A bit higher on carbs than I would normally like but definitely keeps me full.

Second is coffee. (What an artistic photo of my to-go mug). I always make a cup before I leave in the morning and then sip on it throughout the first couple hours of work. Sometimes I’ll grab another cup in the afternoon but a lot of times I have a cup of tea instead.

Quest products are ~amazing~. This is what I had today around 10. I usually bring one snack with me to have at either 10 am or 2 pm, and today I obviously couldn’t wait til the afternoon. Cookie dough is one of my top three. The other two flavors would probably be smore’s and chocolate brownie. (Let’s talk about how they just released mint chocolate chunk because I NEED TO HAVE IT). Macros: 21 carb, 8 fat, 21 protein

Other typical snacks for me would be almonds, a banana, “skinny” popcorn, or quest chips. Some days I’ll bring a diet coke and I have that at 11am (I will not let myself have it even a minute early). I made a deal with my sister to give up pop for the summer so starting on May 1st I’ll have to figure out a new 11 am drink 🙂
