I’m sure other work-from-homers can identify with this current crisis: there are WAY too many distractions at home! Even though I’ve worked from home for 3.5 years, I sometimes struggle to focus. And I really need to buckle down this week and get stuff done.
Not only is it quiet in my favorite corporate giant coffee shop, but there is free WIFI! Wahoo. Latte + Internet = 5 hours of uninterrupted bliss.
Also, there are petite vanilla scones. Loves. I saw the Pioneer Woman did her own version of these recently… Yum. Must try.
Going to Starbucks was a good idea
for the scones for my productivity levels. Kind of reminds me of being a high schooler and studying for exams.
By the time I left, it was dark out!
So I stopped for Chinese food. This is becoming a habit.
Since I already had tofu today, I decided to mix it up by just ordering steamed broccoli + mixed vegetables + brown rice in a basic Chinese brown sauce. I saved a few bucks by not adding a protein!
When I got home, I broke out the cashews.
And topped my veggies with a generous sprinkle:
SO good. It was the perfect ‘fast food’ dinner – and pretty healthy, too (maybe just a little sodium overdose). Next time, I’ll get the same veggie base and add chickpeas – this restaurant doesn’t do the best tofu, anyway.
What’s your favorite healthier fast food solution?
