Quick Sandwich

Quick trivia about me: I love breakfast, I hate lunch, and I really enjoy dinner. I sometimes love eating snacks (sometimes because it is annoying to stop my work day and eat), and I can always make time for dessert.

always have time for this!

You may wonder why I hate lunch, but if you think about it, it is really an inopportune time to eat food!

For lunch, I have to:

  • take a break from work (I am a work-at-home health coach for a huge company & teach fitness classes)
  • figure out what I want to eat
  • decide what ingredients I need to grab to feed that craving
  • grab the ingredients from fridge/pantry
  • make that food
  • sometimes take pictures of that food <—usually if I am beyond hungry no pictures are taken (I am not a food blogger by any means!)
  • eat that food (and hopefully enjoy it!)
  • answer any texts, emails, or non-work related items
  • then get back to my desk

Phew! And in the above list I did not even mention the time it takes to really decide what I want to eat–It can definitely take longer than 5 minutes! Some days I am super indecisive while other days I know exactly what I want to eat. Le’ sigh…. Maybe I just need to change my thought process???

So no surprise when the other day I was past-hungry, ready to eat, & had no time to decide on fancy schmancy ingredients, that I made the quickest (and super delicious) sandwich on the planet.

so fast.

  1. i am SO not a hater of any meal! i just love to eat! :) :) :) my favorite meal is definitely breakfast… for sure! oatmeal, eggs, or smoothies… so many ways to make ’em and oh so good! many times i eat eggs for breakfast and bring oatmeal with a bunch of tasty mix-ins for lunch! :) :)

  2. Totally agree with you on breakfast and dinner being my faves… If dessert DID count, obviously I’d choose that! 😉 Sometimes I eat breakfast foods for lunch just to make me enjoy it more. Yummy lookin’ sandwich!

    I wake up excited to eat breakfast. Green smoothies are my absolute favorite. I like pancakes, waffles, french toast but they don’t really fill me up. I could eat like a zillion and not get full.

    • I had a green smoothie this a.m. too! YUMM.

      I add flax, Almond butter, and whole wheat flour to make those foods more filling–it seems to help!

  4. Hi ! I just came across your blog and wanted to say hello! Those healthy chocolate chip cookies had me drooling so of course I had to check out the recipe for that! I can’t wait to read more on your blog :-)

  5. Those cookies look amazzing!!! and that’s coming from someone in a Ghiradelli brownie coma :)

    I see where you’re coming from w the lunch-hatin’. When you’re in the middle of a workday with limited time, it’s kind of annoying. I hate rushing thru meals! If I eat too much I feel tired/lethargic the rest of the day, and if I eat too little I’m tired and grumpy!
