I'm starving.

I'm sitting here working.....my long-term piece on Lubec's fishermen is almost complete, there is a second story about the Port of Eastport and a third about migrant labor....and I am starving. At 6:30 I had a cup of coffee and two pieces of rye toast.

I had an iced coffee about noon.

See? This is the problem with working at home. I get so busy that suddenly I'm hearing my stomach rumble louder than Mount St. Helens and I've missed lunch and it is still three hours until dinner time....

Normally I would go scavenging for something quick: candy, snacks, a bowl of cereal, some noodles, or my very most favorite: a bag of Smartfood.

Okay, you've talked me out of it. I'm going to take the high road here and make a quick salad.
Then I'm going to Helen's tonight and stuff myself with a steak.

Oh yeah - rewards.

I do the same thing around here. That's why I always end up eating a salad around 2 o'clock, rather than raid the kids lunch boxes! lol! (I always make a big salad for dinner the night before, so I graze on leftovers. ;-)

I hate it when I forget to eat! LOL!

i am the same way - when so intensely focused on a project. everything else fades into oblivion. i am trying to be good and have foods prepped ahead of time when i have marathon sessions in the studio.

hey - i have the BEST vegan ceasar salad dressing recipe (about 20 cals per tablespoon)...will make you crave that healthy salad everyday!!! interested? no anchovies.

Good grief...let me think....nope, I've never missed a meal because I was working too hard....especially at HOME! You are one dedicated professional! (This is not to say I don't work hard, I'm just constantly aware of when meal, snack and pigout time arrives.)
