In The Know
Even though I am over weight, Mine are ok, Not great, but ok. Most of the time I skip breakfast, but if I do eat I will usually get a buttered biscuit from the Chick Fill A in the mall. I use a pack of jelly on it. I try to avoid the fatty biscuit of sausage egg and cheese, but have to admit I do love them.
Lunch varies. I try to bring from home at lest 2-3 times a week, which may vary from a ham sandwich with some chips, to a frozen dinner. I only buy Marie Callenders and even though they are a bit higher on sodium, they have the best flavor for the money.
If I have left overs such as spaghetti I will bring that from home too.
On the days I do buy lunch or dinner in the mall I will choose from Subway (and try to get a big chef Salad), Chick fil A grilled chicken sandwich, or sometimes Chinese
I work in a mid size mall so we have about 9 places to eat at, but those are my favorites.
Supper (or dinner as some people call it) is done more what time allows. I don't fry any meat (or if I do it is once every few months) and stick to baking. We eat more chicken than anything else, but must admit I would have steaks on the grill every night if I could afford it.
My husband prefers rice or noodles over potatoes, so when I make them I usually use instant. Along with the meat I open a canned vegetable or maybe some frozen broccoli.
I almost never have any dessert at my house. If I do buy something sweet it might be a package of chocolate covered graham type cookies from the store.
My husband loves ice cream, but he is much more over weight than I am so I won't buy it for him often.
I have to admit that I do have a weakness for chips and dip and will buy that about once or twice a month, but I try to pop popcorn in the microwave when I want a snack.
Also if you have a Walmart near you try there Sam's Club brand trail mix, I buy the one with M&M and nuts. It gives in to those sweet cravings but is still healthy
We don't drink alcohol, so my vice is Diet Dr. Pepper. I keep it for home. At work I will get sweet tea, lemon aid or regular Dr Pepper, because I buy from Chick Fill A.
I have a plastic handle cup that I get refiled for 87 cents a day with free refills once I pay for the first one. I bought it about a month ago and have been saving $1.00 a day from the regular price of a drink. That is $20.00 a month and that money is going into my vacation fund for my trip back to Gettysburg this fall.
Anyway as you can see I don't have any really healthy eating habits, but at lest they are not horrible.
