Feed me Seymour

For lunch today someone at our house went to Chipotle. A better option in casual dining. Had a chicken burrito bowl. Black Beans, brown rice, vegetables, salsa, sour cream, cheese and lettuce. Quality ingredients, totally acceptable.

Someone else had lizard and rodent sushi, with a grass chaser so she could throw it all up...

Me? A very nice chickpea and red quinoa salad with wilted rocket. Chopped raw kale and collard greens with creamy avocado dressing. Tuna salad sliders, served on cabbage leaves. And for dessert, these little gluten-free chocolate cupcakes with a gooey center. Had two of those. Went back for two more. Stuck them in the basket of my little rainbow bike for the trip back to my desk at a company that is famous for feeding its people...

Afternoon snack was Greek yogurt with toasted granola.

For breakfast? Bacon, three slices. Scrambled eggs, home fries, steamed broccoli. A cup of Philz coffee. Then, espresso. With hunger out of the picture, it's easy to make yourself climb Page Mill before work. (Oh wait, that's tomorrow...)

Since March 31 I must have had bacon for breakfast at least 4 days out of 5. When I see bacon, it's like a switch goes in my brain. I just have to eat it. When it's on the menu of a cafe, I go there. I've become a bacon-seeking drone.

As with any new job, there are some challenging days. But if I ever leave this company I'm going to need a personal chef. And if I stay at this company, I'm going to need to climb Page Mill every day of the week.
