A Hangry Morning

by Meghann on July 29, 2009

I had an appointment today to get my haircut at 10:15. (I just got a trim, no big deal) I left the office around 9:45 still full from breakfast, so absentmindedly I left my midmorning snack at my desk. BIG MISTAKE.

Flash forward to halfway through the cut when my stomach is very loudly growling and I am casually checking my watch every five seconds. I sat very patiently while the nice girl finished, but I could feel my blood sugar dropping and the hangry girl inside of me coming out. I felt so rude rushing out of the salon with barely a smile and a thank you, but I needed to eat!

Whole Foods was on my way back to work so I ran in and got some Hot Bar food to go.

I filled my container with a few hot selections, but the bulk of the container was a nice spinach salad with fresh veggies.

I grabbed one of my favorite Moroccan Mint Green Honest Tea as well.

As you can see I was STARVING and wiped the container clean with my pita wedge.

The 1.14 lbs of food was gone in less then 10 minutes and I still feel hungry. I just popped in a piece of gum and am chugging some water in hopes that my stomach will catch up with my head before I start snacking the afternoon away.

I haven’t had a Whole Foods salad bar in forever! I used to eat it a lot, but it got too expensive.

I can’t wait to try the Whole Foods hot bar when I move, after hearing/seeing all these delish descriptions of it!

A question about that, how much does it cost per oz or per pound?

Mmm, a true boxed lunch! I’m glad I’m not the only one who can throw back lunch in ten minutes… :)

I almost forgot the never go food shopping hungry rule and almost went to the health food store without eating lunch first!! Luckily, I rethought my decision last minute and had lunch. I would have eaten the whole store!!

I love Honest Tea!!! And Whole Foods!

I FEEL YOUR PAIN. I stayed the night with my friend and ended up spending the next day with her, and I was so so so so so so upset that that crazy woman doesn’t eat! She also happened to do all the driving that day – I begged her for breakfast, a pathetic packet of oatmeal, and didn’t have dinner for almost 9 hours. I WAS ABOUT TO KILL. I am not sure I want to hang out with her again.
