My lunches needed to change.
Raise your hand if you're a victim of the whole grab-something-from-any-close-lunch-spot, most-days-eat-it-at-your-desk situation (raises hand). My name is Emily, and the biggest lesson I learned was I needed to put more of a focus on what I was grabbing on the run for my midday meal. While I love to pack my lunch, most days I'm already lugging around a massive gym bag filled to the brim. Hence, the ordering/grabbing sitch.
Hesitant to get anything from shops or markets where I couldn't double-check ingredients lists, I leaned into salads a lot throughout the week. I liked that I could stare at the fresh ingredients myself as they went into the salad bowl. I also developed a thing of sorts for Sweetgreen's Steelhead, a trout that actually tastes just like salmon and is high in omega-3s.
