Well, it seems that having a job and keeping a schedule is a big help toward eating better. Most times in the past when I was pressed for time because of work or whatever, fast food was my choice; McDonald’s, Burger King, or Wendy’s. I’m not saying these are totally out of the picture. I AM human.
Lately, about the last month, I have chosen to eat salads with some sort of grilled meat; chicken, or steak. There are actually a lot of choices. And no, I don’t get salads from the three placed mentioned above. If I go to those places I’m eating a burger and french fries.
Walmart is a place that has a great variety of different salads. They are made fresh daily, though I don’t think they make them in-house. They are quite tasty though. I usually buy 3 or 4 at a time. And like before I don’t get really hungry because of the low glycemic load.
The salads are pretty big, probably 4 cups of green leafy stuff. The dressings are pretty nice as well. Each salad comes with a specific dressing. Some of my favorite salads are the Southwestern with steak, Grilled chicken with apples, dried cranberry, blue cheese, and walnuts is another good one. I don’t remember what that one is called. Of course, they have the Chef Salad, not one of my favorites. It will do in a pinch though. And there are many more to choose from.
I’m not saying I’m back on course, but it is a start in the right direction. I seem to do better when I don’t try so hard. So I just try to make one smart decision at a time when eating is concerned.
Well, that’s about all I have to say for today.😊
