Choppin’ Broccoli

Damnit, Coach.

I love the rare intersections of laziness and productivity.

For example, I don’t want to leave the office for lunch unless I’m meeting a customer—and Uber Eats is a COLOSSAL waste of money—I just started stocking my desk drawer with “healthy” snacks.

Epic beef, bison, and salmon bars. A couple bags of beef jerky. Lara fruit & veggies bars. Kind cranberry almond bars. Seriously. I have at least a dozen options in my desk at any given time—and none of them are over 200 calories.

When I get hungry, I don’t have to get in the truck and drive anywhere. I don’t even have to leave my desk. I just reach into the drawer and grab whatever sounds good. That’s productive.

And since I’m doing so much snacking, I don’t get those crazy, midday hunger pains, so I’m actually eating less. Three or four snacks at 130-190 calories each is less than half the calories of any drive-thru.

It’s lazy productive. I don’t have to think about, plan, prepare, or even schedule lunch. I just reach into my desk and eat. It’s less expensive. It’s healthier. And it’s more productive. I love it.

But as Coach Theis points out, as good as those things are compared to fast food, there are even better options. That’s right, Coach is suggesting vegetables.

I don’t know which feels more bizarre right now, that I’ve got a gallon freezer bag full of broccoli and baby carrots in the fridge—or that I’m kinda craving raw broccoli and carrots.
