Not the Best Start!


So clearly this ain’t paleo and it sure as hell isn’t “clean” eating, but it’s better than most of what’s available while driving a somewhat long distance.

The reality is that I should have packed a lunch, maybe some fruit, turkey and some organic cranberries for a sugar kick.  What I have is a grilled chicken ranch snack wrap (protein), small fries (Booo! Mmmm!) and filtered water. Lunch for less than $3!  Not the best start, but I did what I could with what I have. 


How are you planning to eat healthier during the final leg of the holiday season?

  1. The prices for the amount of food that you receive from these fast food joints are nearly impossible to beat. Yet, for a healthier choice, a quick stop at the grocery store for a sandwich and fruit would suffice.

    The problem with Mickey Dee’s is that everything is coated with chemicals, even the fruit salad.

    • Hi nikalaasante! Thanks for posting! Agreed…I considered getting the sliced apples, but I knew they would likely have sugar added to them, so I opted for the fries. Granted, not any better, but a Rae occurrence for me. An apple and a sandwich wrap, say at TraderJoes, would have set me back by about $4, which is insane compared to under $3 for the Golden arches.
      I’m thinking of doing a 30-60 day food/clean eating challenge starting January 1to get back on track and hit some more PRs.
