I am so frustrated. I am at a work conference all week. There goes my diet. There's a cafe near the lobby that sells coffee and pastries and bananas and juices. Period. The food offered during the conference is all majorly high carb — white breads, pastries, chips for snacks.
I go through this every time I travel. Half the time I end up feeling sick by the end of my trip(s) due to all the carbs I've ingested. It's not that I am going, "Yippee! It's all there is to eat." It's that I have to eat.
Why is it so difficult to find healthy food? Why is our culture not catching up with the reality that we need to eat much better and that not everyone can gobble down cheese-and berry-filled pastries in the morning, sandwiches on white rolls with potato chips for lunch and dinners that start with tortilla chips and end with something wrapped in white bread and then brownies?
