I will admit that I am a person who feels chilly when the temperature dips below 75 degrees, but honestly it is unbelievably frigid in my office today.
As a perpetually cold person, here are the places I’ve found are always too cold:
- Office buildings
- Grocery stores
- Movie theaters
- Fancy restaurants
- Doctor’s offices
To ward off the office chill, I took a brief break outside to feel the warm sun on my skin.
When I returned to my desk, it felt colder than ever! I immediately headed into the break room to make myself a hot tumbler of Mighty Leaf chocolate mint truffle tea.
Hot tea works wonders on a cold body!
Unfortunately I did not pack a hot lunch today to warm me from the inside, but I still managed to love every bite of my cold plate repeat.
Like last night’s dinner, I enjoyed BBQ chicken salad with freshly sliced green and red peppers on the side.
I included several whole grain Melba Snacks in my lunch to dip in the chicken salad.
We had these little toastettes leftover from our BBQ on Saturday. Unfortunately, when they’re not topped with cheese, they are simply not good. 🙁
I ate about half of them before my mouth wanted to shrivel up into a dehydrated cocoon. I have a feeling I would enjoy the white cheddar Melba Snacks flavor much more.
Aside from the dry toasties, this lunch was tasty!
