I’ve been in all-day meetings this week in a conference room at a local hotel for a project I’m involved with at work. The first day the hotel catering staff amazed me – fresh steamed veggies and salmon for lunch (if you ignore the bread and rice and brownies next to them, which I did), fresh fruit and yogurt for afternoon snack. I was very pleased with the healthy options and thought it was going to be an easy food week.
The second day they dashed all my hopes – salad, pizza, pasta, and cookies at lunch, brownies and candy bars for afternoon snack. Lucky for me I never trust hotel catering, and I had a banana in my purse for the afternoon snack! Nothing to be done about lunch but to eat a big salad and a small piece of vegetarian pizza.
I’ve been a model of propriety though, having completely eschewed all of the junk food strewn in my path thus far. I’ll be sure to continue my usual policy the rest of the week and pack healthy snacks. I never expect supportive food, especially when I get no say in the matter.
