I'm a shift worker. I work in a high-stress, fast paced environment where my break times are not always guaranteed. I believe in whole foods. I'm not one of those people who terribly enjoys cooking, but I like it enough to make enough food to feed myself and my wife (who actually IS a chef, but is absolutely buried in school for the next 2 years). I can't bring myself to eat most processed foods. I still eat *way* too much sugar.
I'm trying really hard to like kale. So far, we're still not very good friends.
I struggled for the first several years as a shift worker of what on earth to eat while running around during a 12 hour shift. Tweaking things helped my body cope with the physical and mental rigours of my job, for example I lay off the simple carbs in the morning and at lunch time to help prevent that 2pm crash (if I'm lucky enough to get my lunch before 2pm), however a sweet thing in the late afternoon helps propel me through the last hurdle of my day.
I blog mostly from my phone. The pictures I take aren't food porn quality, so don't expect that. I use my iPhone.
This blog was inspired by my lovely co-workers, who think I should give up my job to make lunches professionally (haha, you guys are funny, here's a blog instead). They are the reason I smile at work and love my job as much as I do. So <3 to you guys.
