    My first thought when I looked at the cartoon was "That's a cute skirt" before I read the caption

    Reminds me of the time during nursing school when I fixed myself a PB& J sandwich and some chips, and realized I was eating the same kinds of comfort foods I'd consumed in high school. :uhoh21:

    when i was in my last semester of grad school i was first-second trimester pregnant and had a three-year-old, too. three days a week my "lunch" was two hard-boiled eggs and a yogurt consumed in the stairwell between two classes. no time for a sandwich, and the eggshells went in the yogurt cup and into the trash as i entered the 2nd class.

    Hey GrnTea, you should actually be proud of yourself. That's a pretty healthy lunch, even though I am sure it got boring after a while.

    one that was suggested for my type-1 diabetic husband was click. he prefers the mocha flavor. it's good either
    hot or cold but has caffeine, so beware! it's high protein. the price varys widely so shop around. pm me and i'll
    tell you where we get ours.

    the vanilla is good cold with fruit added, like a smoothie.

    A sandwich is always the snack of choice. Quick and easy. I can never get tired of a ham and cheese sandwich.

    Nursing school taught me many things, but drinking an 8oz Coke standing in front of the Coke machine @6:38am on my way to morning prayers was probably not one of the best.

    The last few years I've been trying to change the way I eat, because I know I'm not getting younger. Have you guys heard of 'bento'? It's a Japanese term for lunchbox. Instead of buying junk food, I try to make myself a bento before I go to work. This is probably the reason why Japanese people are so healthy. They take time to prepare their food, all with bright colors and healthy ingredients. For inspiration, I go to this blog: Just Bento | a healthy meal in a box: great bento recipes, tips, and more Try it!

    Truthfully? I eat what I can, when I can. I hate it because I know that it'll catch up to me in the end. My snack of choice has been water with Sunchips usually the cheese one (the orange bag lol). Maybe one of those chewy bars or the cereal cups.
