A food tour of my desk

Cuz I'm bored. And it's Friday. It's almost the weekend.

It's been a long time since I had my own desk to call my own. My own place at work to keep goodies. That was one thing I was really excited about when I got this new job -- my own desk! Whee! So, let's see how I'm set up:
Here we have the requisite papaya tabs (Trader Joe's $2.99! Can't beat that with a stick. Thanks Amey!) and gas relief. Though I'm happy to say, I haven't needed that in a while. Next to that is my little glass bowl for mixing up some HMR protein pudding. Then my box of HMR shakes and protein chicken soup (it's actually quite tasty). Those little black things by the bowl are my LorAnn's oils, root beer and chocolate hazelnut flavor. Next row: wasabi lime almonds, my last lone packet of Go-tein (does the fact that it's still around tell you anything?), silverware, napkins. And last: baggie of Crystal Light, True Lemon, and Stevia packets, Mio, and baggie of Bariatric Advantage Calcium Crystals and calcium chews (I like to mix it up a bit).

Down in the bottom drawer, on top of all my technical manuals (and one issue of Martha Stewart Living) we have beef jerky, my shaker cup, a bottle of Solarcaine (yes, I realized summer was a long time ago), some soup, and cocoa roasted almonds. Oh, and some Dr. Norman Vincent Peale for when you need a little pick me up. Seriously, it's an oldie but a goodie.

So, what do you keep in your office food drawer? Anything interesting? Anything you think I'm missing or could benefit from? Anything you would take out?

I LOVE the cocoa almonds. I was surprised that they are WLS friendly, low in sugar because they are OH SO YUMMY!

What do the papaya tabs do?

I would take out the gotein and send it to me. LOL I love that shit.

I cannot tell Aime how thankful I am for that helpful hint in Chicago about the Papaya Enzyme.....so glad I have some too Maria!

I cannot keep food in my work drawer. I have no self control. Even with the band, I feel like the food it taunting me. Pathetic! I have mio, and gas relief!

Camille said...

I love Mio!!!

I haven't had a desk since my band but I carry a tote bag when I work and always keep a variety of snacks. Mainly because I never know if/when I will get to eat.

I love the drawer. I have one as well, but I think I have a lot of out stuff in mine. Time for a clean out and re-stock it... Thanks for reminding me. LOL

I think I need papaya enzymes. They help with stuck episodes, right? I have about 4 boxes of herbal tea. I really love this post. I am inspired to do one of my own.....to be continued.

Granola bars, soup, crackers, crunchy cheese and oatmeal. My drawer is a mess!

I actually have a bag of stuff to take in today to restock my drawer. I shall take a photo as well. I should say, one thing we have in common, I also have one tube of the gotein left. I agree, there is a reason for that!

Wow...you've got a great stockpile there! I do not currently have a food drawer at work. I find stuff does not last long there and it leads to unnecessary snacking on my end. So alas, all I have is tea. That's right...tea bags...that's it. So dull, huh? LOL
