Talking with a coworker today.
Mid conversion I open up the snack I brought to work. Seemed natural, he was eating and so thought I’d join.
He was picking at a lemon poppy seed muffin (156 grams) and washing it down with a large iced latte (590 grams) from McCafe.
When he saw what I had for a snack, he nearly choked on what he was eating. He walked over to me and stared down at my food. I guess he was a little shocked by my snack.
I told him that I have been meal planning lately, I’ve already had breakfast, and this is what I had on the slab for today’s snack:
- Mini Pickles (135 grams)
- Cream Cheese (60 grams)
- Slice of Ham (20 grams)
- Cucumber snagged from the office break room that someone brought in from their garden (? grams)
The snack was supposed to be cream cheese and pickle stuffed ham-wraps. But my pickles were miniatures so I was eating it all separately. The juxtaposition between pickles and a fresh cucumber was awesome!
Shaking his head, he went back to eating his muffin and slurping at his iced latte. Mouth full he said, “Everyone’s weird has a place in this office.”
If only he knew how obsessed I have become with weighing food lately…
Thanks Eat this much.
