Almost all of us love a good sandwich! If you steer clear of the mayo and cheese and fatty meats you can feel good about your lunch. Here is one of my favorites! It’s not too complex so it’s really easy to make; just 4 ingredients. 2 Slices of Wheat Free Bread 3 Slices of Turkey 1-2 T Mustard or Olive Tapenade As much as you want - Arugula
I woke up today in a funk. I have guesses as to why I felt this way. I didn’t have a proper dinner last night and went to bed late. My mind was racing as I went to sleep so I didn’t have good rest.

Fueling our bodies is what gets us through each work meeting, each test, each workout, each errand, each day. We need to constantly refuel every few hours and the choices we make reflect so many things; mood, energy, strength, appearance, overall feeling.
Chances are that right after a workout you’ll have a healthy appetite. But resist the urge to rush to the fridge and eat the first thing that catches your eye without first giving some careful consideration to what you body really needs. Otherwise that snack or meal could inadvertently undermine some of the positive benefits of your workout session.
Whether you’ve chosen to brown bag it for financial reasons or health reasons, what you put in that bag matters. When you make good choices, you’ll find you can escape that mid-afternoon slump that affects so many people in your office. Plus, you can make sure your lunch is helping you stay healthy, no matter what bug is going around the office this week.

But time tends to move faster these days, and if you are not deliberate and intentional about how you spend the weekend it can become a rather meaningless blur that just whooshes past.
