Nearly all of my lunchtime pictures are taken either the night before or right after I eat my morning breakfast. I almost always assemble my lunch and then pack it all up to enjoy at work every day.
Today I forgot to snap photos of my lunch in the morning, so please enjoy these office lunch photos!
This is the real Peanut Butter Fingers.
(Does anyone else remember the old “Diary” shows that would detail a celebrity’s “real life” on MTV? This is the diary of Peanut Butter Fingers…)
Today’s lunch included a Muenster cheese bagelwich with leftover roasted asparagus and a sliced green pepper (most of which was consumed pre-photos).
I forgot how tasty Muenster cheese is… I must enjoy this cheese more often!
And this concludes the desk-side lunch show.
If there’s one thing that I hear over and over again in the healthy living blog world, it’s that moderation is the key when it comes to diet, exercise and living a healthy life.
Want a cookie? Eat it… but not the whole batch.
Want to maintain an exercise routine? Work out often, but give yourself at least one day off from the gym a week to avoid burnout and allow your body to recover.
Want to be a healthy eating superstar? Incorporate lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains and healthy fats into your diet, but don’t deny yourself indulgent foods every once in a while. One small brownie a day is a-okay.
The whole “everything in moderation” mentality has been touted by nutrition and fitness experts for years.
According to the Moderation Nation website, the initiative will allow people to take advantage of services offered by registered dietitians, including:
- A personalized approach to dietary advice and weight management, because one size does not fit all
- Importance of eating a variety of foods from every group – in balance and in moderation
- Pay attention to calorie consumption
- Understand how healthy eating and physical activity are both important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle
Kinda cool, huh?
Tonight I have plans to attend a nutrition seminar after work. I absolutely love learning anything and everything I can about food, fitness and healthy living and think Moderation Nation will be a valuable resource for many.
To me, this initiative is a great way to jump start healthy living for people who may feel overwhelmed or lost when it comes to eating healthy foods or beginning an exercise routine. Hopefully meeting with a professional will allow many to learn more about their bodies and their needs and get even more people to hop aboard the healthy-living train.
