Great idea Kayla! I've had that happen to me several times and I've also done it a few times too. It is such a good feeling - from both sides. One time the guy behind me followed me and was honking and waving and holding up his bag. I felt wonderful the rest of the day.
Something else I'd like to say. The next time you get an unbearable craving for In-n-Out get a Protein Burger. I will get a double protein burger animal style - all the goodies are wrapped in lettuce leaves - and for me it does satisfy my need for that good old In-n-Out taste. I could give a care about their fries or shakes so I'm good there. Besides who needs the stupid bun anyway?
Another thing I do is when I want cheap Chinese food is get one small spoonful of rice, lots of veggies and whatever chicken entree that strikes my fancy that isn't something breaded and fried.
I have also gone online to a lot of the fast food sites of places that I like and check out the nutritional info and I can usually find something that is pretty low calorie. Kayla if you've got In-n-Out close by there's probably an El Pollo Loco. They have some really good, filling salads that are under 500 calories if you don't get the creamy cilantro dressing - the citrus one is the best IMO. Even McD's has good salads if you get them with the basalmic dressing.
Just a few ideas. You are a very busy young woman and I know how hard it can be to fit in cooking time. I'm not that busy anymore but after a long day I sure don't feel like cooking. I hope I've given you some ideas.
Almond milk is the new, healthier thing. A few years ago it was soy milk and now it's almond. Yes, you can find it in the case with the regular milk. It does have fewer calories too. I have also seen the almond milk on a non refridgerated shelf in kind of like little juice boxes. It is supposed to be very good but I haven't tried it since I rarely have cereal or anything else that I would use milk in. Plus it is a bit more expensive than cow's milk.
