So what are you eating for lunch today? (past tense for east coasters)Kristin

Me, I'm having:

A Gouda/Apple Turkey Keobassa (sp?) 155 cal, 9g fat, 12g protein
Seasoned Lentils which I made last night
6 ounces of coke
Something sweet. I'm not sure what yet. I saw some carrot cake downstairs. Or perhaps just a cookie. I have never defeated the post-lunch sweet craving.

So what about you?

That's classic redneck food, isn't it?moneyman

I actually heard a story about that on NPR last week or so. Something about how it was cheap and filling, and during the depression that was an unbeatable combination.

sounds like a cyclist's breakfast nmDougSloan

During the summer, when I'm riding 12-15 hours a week, I just shovel down carbohydrates and absolute junk. During the winter, when 5 hours on the goddamn trainer is a good week, I eat much better because I'm not craving carbs constantly.

I suspect, but don't know, that's fairly common. A woman I know who's a long distance runner had the worst, junkiest diet I've ever seen.

When I was riding 500 miles a week, I got into the habit of eating anything and everything. I would crave food for several days after my 200 milers on Saturdays. I couldn't gain weight if I tried. Got into some bad habits, and now it's tough to cut back. Winter time is almost worse, when the staff here is bringing donuts and cake crap every day and we have all sorts of junk food lying around at home.
get rid of that coke cookie and carrot cake!ColnagoFE

everytime I give in to my sweet tooth it just makes me crave more. I'm rarely satisfied with just a nibble. If I forgo all of it then I don't get those cravings as intensely. For lunch today? Can of salmon...handful of yellow bell peppers. Some mixed nuts. Or I may give in and head out with a co-worker for a Illegal Pete's chicken burrito as big as your head! Yum!
Hey! I didn't ask your opinion. But if you want mineKristin

Go for the head sized burito. It will at least make me feel better about my lunch. Funny. I had gotten myself down to super small portion sizes and I was more than satified with them. I've noticed they've crept back up again. Hmph! I'm going to move to Etheopia and let some poor Etheopean come over here and have my life. (Which really isn't such a good offer for the Etheopean. My life comes with my boss.) Speaking of, he's beginning to skulk around and make that sighing noise, which means he's frustrated that I'm online. Back to work! Cya...

I try and eat small meals, but then again I eat something every 2-3 hours otherwise I get really bad cravings for head sized burritos!
Lunch #1...gf99

... Quizno's sub (Italian) & bag of Doritos.

Lunch #2: Chicken, rice, veggies & a brownie. I went to Quizno's cause I forgot lunch was being ordered in at work today. Couldn't resist though.

This is why I must ride a lot. :)

doggie biscuits and water. I bring a can of soda, yogurt, baggie of carrots, an apple, baggie of cashews and M&Ms, and a sandwich with 2 slices of roast beef, 2 of ham, slice of cheese on honey wheat bread. Actually, I kind of spread out the lunch over the day.
Nice. Where are you hiking?Kristin

...I'd be glad to swap this cloudless, 85*, headwind-free day for a good soaking here. We've been looking at parched, brown hillsides since April.

As for lunch, I think not. I just finished breakfast (saffron rice omelette and blue corn waffles)--guess I'd better go work off some of it.

Park City, Utah. Most of the leaves have changed and dropped but it is still wonderful weather. No rain for October to speak of, kinda hoping for snow about now (ski resort town and all). Just heard we are hosting USA Cycling Nationals next year for Masters, Women and Juniors. Should be awesome.

Seared ahi tuna salad with tomatoes, olives, spinach greens, green beans and small new potatoes. Yeah I know, well, I live in California.

Oh, and a bag of Kettle Chips salt and vinegar, my favorite.

Sadly though, I don't think it's quite enough to keep me satisfied until dinner. I'm praying that the chicken in my fridge is still edible.
The conversation was better than the lunch . . .ms

I had lunch with a veteran of the China-India-Burma theater in WWII who spoke to a group of us about his war experience (he was a physician serving in the field). The menu: Course 1: Minestrone; Course 2: Chicken slop (something akin to Chicken a la king), couscous and green beans; Course 3: Cheese (I had some goat cheese) Course 4: Dessert (I had to leave before it was served). Not my usual lunch, but it was a nice break in the work day.
