Tips for Healthy Food For Working From Home
I’m not alone. An informal poll among work-from-home friends and fellow freelancers turned up pleas for help and admissions of lunchtime noshing equally as unhealthy as my own.
I turned to Rose because since becoming a full-time, work-from-home freelance writer I’ve struggled with lunches. For all that I’m an adult human being capable of meeting deadlines and caring for a home and creatures reliant upon me, every day around noon I flail helplessly about the kitchen until I land upon a granola bar or something. My excuse? A string of lamentations: I’m too busy. I can’t stop working long enough to cook. This story’s not going to write itself while I’m at the stove! I didn’t go to the store. I went to the store but I didn’t get anything good. I didn’t plan ahead. I’m hungry and I don’t know what to make so I’ll just eat a piece of cheese while standing at the kitchen counter (aka my “desk”) working.
That could explain what I heard from Caitlin Kelly, a New York based writer and writing coach, who has a roster of healthful, easy lunches at her command including cottage cheese with fruit or a big salad with with pumpkin seeds, strawberries and protein such as egg or cheese. “[I’m] not sure why anyone would find it difficult to eat well at home,” she says.
