Healthier options for a lunch break.

Yesterday on my lunch break at work I was starving and of course did not bring anything for lunch. I don’t always have a lot of time to find something to eat and even though I work at a pretty large outdoor mall all the close options are either expensive, time-consuming, or just plain unhealthy. I didn’t want to just give in and go to the food court so I ended up driving to the Chick Fil-A nearby. I knew that if I just completely skipped lunch I would just be starving later, and I also didn’t want to eat something like a burger. I ended up choosing an option from the kids menu, which ended up being really good. What I got will look and sound ridiculous but to have something just to eat and hold me over till dinner it was pretty good and pretty healthy.

So this is what I got: Orange juice, grilled chicken strips, and an apple and cinnamon blended thing which was pretty much like baby food to me. Seriously I think it was baby food like you get in those small mason jars with the blended apple or banana things. But I drank it and it was pretty delicious.

So the funny thing about this is that the serving of chicken I got is probably what a proper serving size is for an adult. This also cost $5.00 and some change which is pretty good. Now I wouldn’t eat this as a usual lunch because I like my greens, but as an option if I don’t have my lunch it is really good. I love finding healthy options when I’m out because it helps me stick to my healthier lifestyle. The other thing I get if I don’t have my lunch or breakfast is Jamba Juice. They now have healthier juices with fruit and vegetables and I always choose the Apples and Greens option which has a mix of fruit and vegetables (obviously), and also has Spiralina which is an amazing vitamin/supplement.
