If, like me, you’re all plum-tuckered out from the stress that comes with preparing for the Holidays, chances are that you’ll be as hungry as a hunter and as surly as a bear. Your energy is seriously depleted, you’re bone-tired, and the crowds have more or less frayed your nerves.
That said, I would suggest that you don’t grab a quick burger combo at the nearest fast-food joint. You do not need all that extra fat and the miserly amount of food won’t go far when it comes to refueling your body. Instead, you need a whopping vitamin boost to get you going. This does not, of course, mean that you ought to consider a salad for lunch. I never said anything about eating light here!
Instead, try a Mongolian bowl for lunch. Whether you get it from the CaterPro Cafeteria over at the Citibank Tower or at any Mongolian Quick-stop stall at your local food court, it’s the best choice for setting your system to rights if you’re doing something stressful. You get a good selection of vegetables, that’s for sure: julienned carrots and white radish, shredded cabbage and Savoy cabbage, shiitake mushrooms, and spring onions all add zing to your step and draw those stress-caused toxins out of your body. A bit of beef or seafood adds much-needed iron and iodine to the mix. You can have rice or noodles – perhaps both – for some well-deserved carbo-loading, too.
And it isn’t just healthy, it tastes wonderful, too. 🙂
